Stylists. Makeup artists. Aestheticians. Massage therapists. Nail technicians. The lengthy staff roster at Mancini Giuffre represents the salon and spa's lengthy list of services, all performed by experts in their respective fields. Skilled hands cut and color hair, deep clean pores with facials, and soothe achy muscles with just the right massage strokes. They also take their treatments outside of the confines of Mancini Giuffre, beautifying wedding parties before they walk down the aisle.
The staff at White Pearl Body Work & Foot Spa makes sure that clients leave the massage studio relaxed from head to toe. The bodywork specialists administer long, flowing Swedish strokes as well as firm, deep-tissue kneads, shiatsu pressure, and muscle-melting hot stones during their massages. White Pearl pays special attention to extremities as well with its foot-reflexology massages.
Potted plants add a verdant touch to the calming, minimalistic environment created by J&S Spa's sleek hardwood floors and clean white walls. The aestheticians provide a complete anatomical spread of pampering services stretching from spa pedicures to ginger-honey body wraps to eyelash extensions. Inside private rooms, guests relax as massage therapists release tension and restore balance through an array of massage modalities, including thai herbal therapy. A variety of facials—infused with antioxidants and vitamin C—leave skin looking radiant while reducing the appearance of fine lines and the urge to lick orange trees.
It's rare to find strength-training equipment and oriental rugs in the same room. But on the premises of Human@ease, the two comfortably coexist. The hybrid furnishings reflect the establishment's hybrid mission?it's part gym, part holistic health center. That duality is evident in the gym's signature training technique, too. Dubbed "Introversion", the technique replaces quick reps with a blend of slow, continuous lifting and controlled breathing. Its aim, beyond toning muscles? To build a strong mind-body connection like that of experienced yoginis, many of whom can move their arms just by thinking.
Human@ease trainers don't neglect traditional gym offerings, either. Alongside their specialty Introversion sessions and yoga classes, they also lead Zumba dance parties and cardio-kickboxing workouts. The team tends physiques with non-calorie-burning health treatments, too, from acupuncture and shiatsu massage to sweating sessions in the on-site infrared sauna, whose rays can help the body release pent-up toxins.

The friendly techs at Crystal Spa add color and shine to nails with traditional and Shellac polishes. CND Shellac polish brushes on quickly and sets under a UV lamp, resisting smudges and glacial erosion while staying glossy for up to two weeks. The spa's nail artists stand by their work, so if a customer is not satisfied with their mani or pedi, they can call that same day and schedule a do-over appointment.
