At Good Life Wellness, highly trained Jessica Sleight administers acupuncture treatments while a team of licensed massage therapists kneads away stress and back pain. Sixty-minute acupuncture treatments use tiny needles to tap into pressure, ward off ailments, and restore the body's natural defenses by pinning up tiny Beware of Dog signs.

Shear Perfection Salon & Spa invites guests to enjoy relaxing services that cover nearly every facet of beauty. As stylists sculpt manes with haircuts and permanent waves, nail techs pamper paws with mani-pedis that include a skin-softening scrub, soothing massage, and a reading of each toe's favorite bedtime story. Armed with both a standup tanning bed and spray-on techniques, the salon helps patrons conquer pallid complexions and complement the natural glow produced by facials and pore-purifying microdermabrasion. Those looking to add a touch of glamour to an already polished exterior can opt for eyelash extensions or ask about the salon's ear-piercing services, while those who prefer to leave the Mediterranean-inspired confines feeling lighter than when they came can shed stress under the relaxing ministrations of a Swedish or cellulite-reducing massage.
I-Surgeons's team of physicians oversees a range of sight-restoring laser treatments. LASIK and PRK, the main laser eye surgeries at the practice, enhance visual acuity in patients suffering from myopia, astigmatism, and hyperopia, and the treatments use three different lasers to reshape corneas of varying thicknesses. To determine if patients are eligible for these surgeries or in possession of superpowers, a doctor examines eyes during free consultations that measure corneal thickness and pupil size. The surgeons also turn their eye expertise to blepharoplasties to correct drooping upper lids or puffy under-eye bags. They fight wrinkles around the eyes, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead with Botox and Dysport injections.
The Certified Reflexologists and Licensed Massage Therapists at Body & Sole Reflexology and Spa want each of their treatments to evoke the relaxing sensations of a seaside vacation. They seem to have taken this idea and ran with it, decorating each of their spa’s rooms with tokens that recall a distinct tropical locale. From the Tahiti room’s wall-length mural of an island sunset to the South Pacific suite’s two plush beds—each outfitted with an inflatable lifejacket—not a single element spoils the impression of an exotic getaway.
The staff’s dedication to this theme mirrors their dedication to soothing clients’ stresses with reflexology, massage therapy, and other relaxing body treatments. A science-based therapy that focuses on energy pathways in the feet, hands, ears, and face, reflexology manipulates these reflex points to improve circulation and help the body recover from physical and emotional stresses. A wealth of massage techniques—ranging from the long, gentle strokes of Swedish to the moisturizing essential oils of aromatherapy—similarly reduce stress and set muscles on the path to recovery. Though treatments tend to be designated to particular rooms, the communal Lava Lounge stays open to all guests, who can admire its glowing collection of custom jewelry and kick back on couches stuffed with pillowy volcanic ash.
Bodywise Center for Wellbeing's wide variety of soothing spa treatments focus on helping clients regain total body health while evicting noxious toxins.

Clients looking to pamper toes can choose between two foot treatments. The Touch of Thai treatment douses foot prongs with a fusion of rice-bran oil, green tea, creamy coconut, and lemongrass, and the Stomping of the Grapes foot treatment features a wine mask that strengthens skin and brings cuticles one step closer to sommelier certification.
Odyssey Salon and Spa pampers patrons with friendly, personal care in a relaxing environment.
