At Esthetics by Jess, located within Regent Street Salon, the eponymous owner and aesthetician pampers faces with a variety of treatments that aim to rehab skin. Jess believes that good skincare is akin to vacuuming—you can really see where you’ve worked and where you haven’t. And though she knows that skin will never do exactly what you want, she wants to do what she can to keep it healthy.
So Jess draws on her seven years of experience to perform anti-aging, cleansing, and chemical facials, as well as back treatments. During each session, she thoroughly analyzes skin before slathering on the appropriate high-quality, natural product. After facials, Jess recommends a personalized skincare regimen and good library book.
The stresses of everyday life dissipate at the hands of Desert Palms Alternative Health’s licensed massage therapists, who relieve tension and aches within the confines of an all-purpose health spa. Led by massage therapist, alternative healer, and Canadian expat James R. Davis, the team culls techniques from a wide range of modalities—from the long, flowing strokes of Swedish to the penetrating warmth of hot-stone massage. Their breadth of knowledge allows them to cultivate massages that treat patients as individuals and even accommodate special conditions such as pregnancy.
The alternative healing center’s customized spa services don’t end with massages.

Despite its tranquil atmosphere and soothing services, visiting Inner Harmony Massage just for relaxation might be setting the bar too low. Some of its therapists possess more than two decades of experience, and all continue to hone their expertise through educational endeavors such as specialized certifications, workshops, and even the teaching of others. As a result, the massages they provide—which range from traditional Swedish strokes to firmer, more focused sports and deep-tissue work—are designed not just to promote relaxation, but to get at the root of what ails their clients, whether it's pain, lack of mobility, or diminished athletic performance from running with both shoelaces tied together. To extend the relief as long as possible, the therapists perform a post-massage consultation that grants clients with tips on stretches, relaxation techniques, ergonomic devices, athletic warm-ups, and other ways to keep muscles limber and relaxed.
