Too often, massages billed for their serenely relaxing nature are disturbed by the murmurs of other clients in the next room or in the hallway. Sandy Martinelli LMT, a graduate of Cortiva Massage Therapy Schools and certified in therapeutic massage and neuromuscular therapies, protects her therapy rooms from that kind of noise, but that's not the only way she creates a relaxing atmosphere. Her rooms are decorated in earth tones, such as shades of spring green, and she customizes the service for each clients individual needs. She invites clients to take all the time before or after sessions to relax, perhaps by mentally picturing sheep flying over a fence in a posh private jet.
The Body Wrap Shoppe staff are used to hearing gasps once customers emerge from their casings to try on formerly too-tight clothing. Their hypoallergenic wraps strive to visibly subtract signs of cellulite, aging, and loose skin from both physiques and faces. They differ their treatments from traditional plastic wraps by relying on natural ingredients—delivered via swathes of porous bandages—rather than dehydration and supplementary bear hugs to achieve a slimmer look. Personal consultations also ensure that each guest goes into his or her cocoon feeling informed and cozy.
The staff at A Perfect Pair Salon & Spa has a knack for making things gorgeous. They adorn their luxurious studio with fine artwork, vibrant flowers, and ornamental upholstery, complemented by rustic rocking chairs on their attractive front porch. Amid soft, tulle curtains and warm lighting, the staff extends their aesthetic prowess to beautifying their clients with a variety of services, from haircuts to replenishing facials to decorative shellac manicures. A massage therapist soothes sore muscles as clients recline on plush, cushy beds. They also give their clients the power to prettify themselves, as they stock their shop with a variety of beauty products, including fine jewelry, smoothing skincare products, and shampoo that makes heads sprout lush daffodils.

Doctor of Oriental medicine Stephen Dell-Jones makes use of traditional Eastern medicine beyond the usual Chinese and Japanese acupuncture treatments. He calls upon holistic Eastern methods when creating supplement-based nutrition plans and performing cosmetic acupuncture treatments that can tone and tighten the skin to minimize the appearance of fine lines.
Tara, the licensed massage therapist at Safari Oasis Massage Therapy, strives to create a serene oasis of relaxation that is "preserved from surrounding unpleasantness," as defined along one wall of the reception area. Tara uses custom kneads to send her clients on therapeutic journeys, offering an eclectic menu of modalities such as Swedish, bamboo fusion, and reflexology. Before their massage, clients lounge in the well-appointed waiting room, complete with refreshments and calming music. The studio is also decorated with framed zebra portraits, thatched furnishings, animal-print rugs, and impala statues to add unique safari flair.
