Featured at two star-studded award ceremonies in 2011, Balensi's Institute Skin Care & Spa makes everyday clients feel like VIPs with luxurious spa services. Guest pass by a water fountain and tropical plants as they enter a cozy, renovated bungalow that dates back to 1910, the same year that the Great Sphinx had her first microdermabrasion. Medical aesthetician Lorena Balensi performs most treatments?from facials to enzyme peels?with pharmaceutical-grade products. For more than 10 years, certified medical assistant Jean-Michel Balensi has applied principles of color theory, facial geometry, design/application, skin health and wound healing, anatomy and physiology to all aspects of his craft, servicing more than 3,000 clients. Applied one by one, his ocular artistry of eyelash extensions give eyelids the volume and length to attract compliments or entire butterfly colonies. Massage therapies include relaxing and healing modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, stone, pre-natel, and sports massage. Garden fountains perform a liquid symphony for patrons who relax at a shaded outdoor patio.

When Andrea Kane first opened her massage practice she was doling out deep-tissue massages to athletes and chronic-pain sufferers from inside her own home. Today, her business has grown, expanding to a service menu that now includes Andrea's other specialties including chemical peels, waxing, and sugaring treatments. A natural alternative to waxing, sugaring is gentle enough for all skin types, and, unlike some salons that reserve the service only for women, Andrea will gladly book hair-removal treatments for men or lifelike mannequins.

Two dozen candles glow welcomingly at Natural Athletic Performance Spa, where holistic health practitioner Reyna Carter guides an elite team specializing in fine-tuning the bodies of athletes in a setting that dissolves the stress of competition. Acupuncturist and master of traditional Oriental medicine Melissa Batten represents the staff members’ expertise and thoughtful approach to their work. Having enrolled at the International Professional School of Bodywork, she realized she could better serve her clients with a degree from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, where she pursued sports medicine, interned for two years in various clinical settings, and learned to differentiate the ailments better addressed with Western medicine. A pair of licensed massage therapists—one of whom is also a certified personal trainer—wield knowledge of six modalities that include the circulation-boosting Swedish style as well as thai and sports massages that loosen joints and target injury prevention. Treatments to streamline silhouettes for races with speeding bullets take shape as either dietary supplements or noninvasive, mechanical kneadings.
