Pure essential oils supplement the healing touch of certified massage therapist Nicole Pocaro. She stirs these relaxing sensory tools into massages customized from seven different modalities, from Swedish and deep-tissue to reiki, reflexology, and hot-stone massages.

With pistachio-green walls, separate tanning rooms, and a staff certified by the National Tanning Training Institute, Jamaica Tan provides quality bronzing in a laid-back atmosphere.

Elements Day Spa pampers over-stressed guests and effortlessly brings beauty within reach with a plethora of energizing options. During the 60-minute signature facial treatment, a skilled spa technician applies one of 298 customized concoctions, designed to rehydrate parched skin cells and smooth coarsened complexions. Included with the facial is a soothing massage that will loosen lymph nodes and knead tension from hands and feet. Reclined relaxers can treat their people-paws to a spa pedicure and sport digits that dazzle onlookers like an elephant balancing on a giant disco ball. Exfoliation and paraffin treatments reinvigorate fatigued feet, and the nail shaping and polish application transform under-dressed appendages into striking flip-flop fillers. The finger-focused can make over dowdy digits with a shellac manicure that replaces harsh chemicals with hypoallergenic products. A UV lamp is used to set the shellac and eliminate drying time, creating a flawless gloss that can last for up to two weeks.

Private treatment rooms comfort patients with soft linens and artwork, and plush furniture and a flat-screen TV keep clients occupied in the waiting room.

They also help skin stay smooth with cosmetic waxing and keep hair straight and voluminous with keratin glazes.
