Sunlight streams through the windows at The Massage Works, filling the waiting room with the warmth and light of that of a secret oasis. Within the 3,500-square-foot facility, clients relax within one of 11 treatment rooms as licensed massage therapists ease their muscles and brighten their skin tone with services such as body wraps, facial scrubs, and Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages.
In the midst of rustic woods, there sits a three-story building. Upon opening its front door, visitors unleash a gentle wave of aromatherapy scents and warm air. They step inside, where therapists lead them past wood accents and into private treatment rooms. World of Serenity’s spa atmosphere recalls the calm of the surrounding wilderness, and inside its walls, therapists adopt a holistic approach; they educate guests in wellness basics, such as why humans don’t eat sand, and perform a range of customized spa services. They soften faces, deep-cleanse pores, and slough of dead cells during customized facials; sometimes scouring or soothing the skin with an additional enzyme deep cleanse, warm stones, or anti-aging collagen. They also ease muscle tension with six massage modalities such as deep tissue, warm stone, and reflexology; and scrub clients from head to toe using salt and sugar rubs, and wraps made from natural dead sea mud or Paradisius—a blend of ground fruit and flower extracts.
In their daily battle against stress, the massage therapists at Trees Bodyworks have a secret weapon: texture. They often enhance their strokes and pressures with exfoliating grains of sugar that soften calluses or silky oils that heal dry and itchy skin on the scalp. The studio?s clients can choose from a list of modalities that include both of the classics?Swedish and deep-tissue massage?as well as a specialty trigger therapy that targets muscles sore from chronic tension and pulling on the triggers of oversized novelty water guns.
At the Wellness Med Spa & Laser Center, board-certified medical director David Kaner leads a team of licensed massage therapists and aestheticians who perform a suite of treatments for the face and body. Through a blend of traditional and technologically enhanced techniques, they reawaken youth with services customized to specific skin needs. Classic facials hydrate and clean the pores, and microdermabrasion uses mechanical instruments to lift away sun-damaged skin. Therapists deliver a range of massage modalities, and aestheticians enhance the natural outlines of the eyes with traditional makeup application. For more advanced treatments, staff members use laser and light therapies for skin tightening, hair removal, and curing fears of the dark.
Named one of the Top Spas and Med Spas in Tarrant County by the Fort Worth Business Press in 2009, The Spa At the Village's aestheticians rejuvenate clients' skin and spirits with spa and holistic treatments. The extensive roster of services, which ranges from facials and massages to hydrotherapy and weight loss, helps guests balance internal health and external beauty.
Spa parties make each birthday or bachelorette party a simultaneously fun and beautifying event, and the wellness club can help celebrate birthdays and holidays with special promotions and gifts. The spa's boutique also hawks high-end organic ?minence products, HerbaSway serums, and FarmHouse Fresh products, ensuring that clients can exfoliate, tone, and moisturize the complexion of a favorite teddy bear or a sleeping grandmother in the comfort of their own homes.
After running her own spa in South Africa, Elize van Beljon ferried over to the States to open Spa By Di Vine?s stately stone-flanked doors in 2008.

Each visit begins with a personalized consultation to determine skin type, treatment options, and product preferences before delving into the tension-melting session. The spa?s selection of services consists solely of pharmaceutical-grade, clinically proven, and FDA?approved regimens that ensure a pampering experience as science-centered as sipping champagne from an Erlenmeyer flask.
