The massage therapists at Spa Heaven have a sensible solution for continually improving their techniques: they practice on each other. By drawing on that expert focus group, the staff has mastered the skills to soothe clients' bodies and minds with a unique blend of more than 15 modalities of Eastern and Western massage. But along with touch, the team also appeals to the other senses, filling rooms with the scents of aromatherapy oils and incense.
Spa Heaven's staff goes above and beyond treating aches with a slew of skin-rejuvenating body wraps. They concoct the compounds in their wraps from organic coffee in the organic green coffee body wrap, tropical fruit in the de-aging tropical fruit body wrap, and the finest mud pies in the aromatic dead sea mud wrap.
Walking into Spatastic Bodywraps feels a bit like coming home. More like a living room than a lobby, the waiting area is decorated with comfy loveseats and couches, textured wall hangings, and potted plants. Beyond a wooden folding screen and through a closed door is the treatment area, which is decorated in soothing neutral tones with a large padded treatment table dominating the space. Once visitors recline on the bed, aestheticians go to work, extending, tinting, and perming their eyelashes. But not all their work is focused upon the eyes. As their name would suggest, they also offer body wraps in addition to facials and massages.

The Healing Center embraces the Six Steps to Wellness program, using it to create custom treatments that help patients achieve total physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness. Doctor of Chiropractic John A. Morrow first consults with patients to determine which wellness area needs work. He corrects spinal misalignments with the Adjustor system to improve structural issues, evaluates diet deficiencies to optimize nutrition, and uses biofeedback to identify and eliminate allergies and sensitivities.
For outer wellness, The Healing Center offers noninvasive body sculpting with the Zerona laser and teeth whitening. All treatments are performed inside the cozy 8,000-square-foot facility, which feels more like a spa than a traditional wellness clinic, with its infrared sauna, exercise machines, detoxification room, and peaceful kazoo background music.
Selah Medi Spa?s skilled aestheticians address skin concerns, making epidermises glow from head to toe in a soothing spa setting. Personalized facials inundate skin with a radiance usually only achievable through hours of strenuous ant-farm labor, and injections of Botox or Juvederm revive youthful looks. Patrons can also purchase Gl?minerals makeup, which enhances natural beauty with UV protection and light reflectors. Licensed massage therapists also work through each tense barricade of ligaments and tendons, varying pressure to ease stress and alleviate pain.
Since completing his residency in obstetrics and gynecology more than 20 years ago, Dr. James Kern has helped women maintain their inner well-being. Now, with the addition of medical aesthetics, Kern helps men and women alike showcase their outer beauty through both surgical and noninvasive procedures, from Botox to weight loss. Transformations can take place under the doctor-directed HCG diet, which deploys the HCG pregnancy hormone to speedily release unwanted fat cells in both men and women. Through the Body-Jet liposuction system, water flushes out fat to help sculpt and contour the body more effectively than a slip ‘n’ slide souped up with a pressure washer.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
