Euphoria Salon & Day Spa's skilled aestheticians eradicate unwanted body fuzz and rejuvenate faces with Aveda and Éminence products. Brazilian waxes remove unwanted whiskers in clients' lower hemispheres, making bodies wistfully bikini-ready while decreasing the need for a pool skirt or aquatic hot-dog suit. During each 30- to 45-minute signature facial, epidermal specialists eliminate lifeless cells, dirt, and oil from the skin's surface and replenish the underlying flesh with nourishing products. The salon's crimson accents and brick walls create an elegant, cozy atmosphere, which patrons can soak up like absorbent back issues of Better Homes and Gardens as their bodies emerge from their calming cocoons.

At Sotaira's Organic Spa & Yoga Studio, staff members instill visitors with a newfound sense of confidence by gussying up exteriors and keeping bodies fit with yoga and Pilates classes.

The massage therapists' mental rolodex of modalities includes relaxing and therapeutic techniques as well as maternity treatments for expectant mothers or hatching ostrich eggs. Intent on refining posture, instructors of the center's Vinyasa yoga and Pilates mat classes help to keep bodies and minds trim regardless of students' skill level or age.

The tranquil atmosphere of Sarah Lee Thomas’ eponymous spa begins in the waiting area, where practically silent black-and-red wicker furniture cozies up to a burbling fish tank whose denizens execute rounds of synchronized relaxing. Dim lights soothe clients as they enter private treatment rooms to undergo tension suspension in the form of massages and facial treatments. For massage, Sarah Lee corrals oils, polished basalt lava stones, and bodily scrubs, all of which aid and abet her myriad body-manipulation techniques. Spa sessions can also include one of her signature facials, which revamp complexions in need of hydration, anti-acne ointments, or written permission to bob for apples in the fountain of youth.
