"A one stop beauty shop" is how the owners of Health and Beauty of South Florida describe their business, and they have the wealth of services to prove it. Licensed aestheticians perform facials that hydrate and rejuvenate skin, and their body wraps zap inches from waistlines and help their clients detoxify. The center's massage therapists get to working on muscle aches and tension, which melt away thanks to applied pressure and gentle kneading. But pure beauty treatments aren't left out, either: mani-pedis add shine to fingers and toes, and updos give clients a new look for a night out on the town or a convenient place to store a pen.

Sweat pours from foreheads, hearts race, and blood courses. Though these effects are commonly caused by exercising, they are also caused by the detoxifying body wraps offered at Aphrodite. This boutique spa draped in a color scheme of teals and tans employs technicians that foster the toxin-purging process by shining infrared light over fully clothed clients in specialized wraps. Light energy is then able to reach the dermal layer of the skin, where it disrupts fat cells. Along with shrinking waistlines, each 50-minute session aims to relieve aches and pains caused by arthritis, fibromyalgia, stress, and attempting to play water polo with a bowling ball.
