The professional aestheticians and massage therapists at The Face Place tussle with tense spots and cleanse world-weary complexions in a soothing, Eastern-themed spa. A 15-minute aromatherapy eucalyptus steam bath permeates physiques to loosen clenching muscles and waist-clinging koala bears. Bodies can then spurn bothersome aches with one of four massage modalities, including the smooth, classic strokes of a Swedish massage or the more pressurized, pain-pummeling kneads of a deep-tissue treatment. During maternal massage, practiced knuckles gently search for baby-related back pain, and the integrative reflexology massage targets nodes in the ears, hands, and feet that correspond to distinct corporal zones or prompt noses to glow red and shout "operation!"

Thin sheets of polish cover keratins, with UV rays speeding the curing process between coats. Alternatively, scissor-wielders collaborate with clients to design hairstyles that accommodate personal tastes and profiles before shampooing and cropping overflowing tendrils. Moroccanoil treatments restore elasticity to shorn locks, replenishing protein for stronger manes that look great when flexing in a leotard.

The Caribbean therapy manicure pampers skin cells and nerve endings and the special occasion makeup application decorates newly brightened mugs with botanically based pigments, giving faces a cheerful change from clown paint.
