Traditional Thai artwork brightens the dark-mahogany walls of Thiparpa Thai Massage in the light of chandeliers and flickering candles. From the floor of this flower-studded haven, therapists perform traditional Thai massages atop soft mattresses separated by opaque, glittering curtains. In their signature style, therapists use their bodies to move clients through positions that compress muscles, exercise joints, and mimic the poses of the therapist's childhood rag doll. Therapists can also incorporate Swedish massage and whiffs of aromatherapy. Thiparpa stays open until 9 p.m. daily, which provides patients ample time for a massage after work.
The Kneaded Spot specializes not only in familiar massage styles such as the Swedish technique, but also BowenWork, a three-decade-old therapy style invented by famed practitioner Tom Bowen. The outfit's massage services tend to privilege relaxation over pain relief, though massage can still lead to side benefits such as more restful sleep and an end to screaming matches with your trapezius muscle. BowenWork, on the other hand, focuses on alleviating pain, realigning and resetting the body through gentle rolls over precise points in order to aid in recovery from accidents and sports injuries.

Any salon can make you look good for one day, but the best salons strive to help hair, skin, and nails become healthier so that they'll look great for weeks to come. At Idea Spa Salon, stylists use Aveda botanical conditioning treatments to soften strands and repair damage, and nail artists use paraffin dips to replenish hands' moisture. During Aveda facials, aestheticians incorporate everything from herbal masks and high-frequency light treatments to balance and brighten skin, creating a smooth, even canvas in time for an appointment with the salon's makeup artists or a blind date with a face-painting clown.
Ten years. That's how long it took the experts at Oceanic Foot Spa to perfect their signature foot massage, which incorporates elements of reflexology to help promote relaxation throughout the body. But the spa's pampering services don't stop at the ankles. Full-body massages treat recipients to soothing Swedish sessions or tension-relieving hot-stone treatments, and facials provide custom cleansing. Once their service ends, clients can sip on goji berry-rose tea and wiggle their freshly de-stressed toes.
