At Adonis Spa, aestheticians invoke the eponymous Greek god of beauty and follow tips that surface during in-depth consultations as they craft custom concoctions of plant-derived Pure Fiji skincare products. The spa sets a soothing tone the moment clients walk through the door: peaceful music wafts throughout the space, fruit-infused water or herbal tea beckons clients' palates, and aestheticians sing lullabies to stressed-out complexions. The treatments themselves also soothe. Therapists incorporate aromatherapy into their massages, for instance, and aestheticians cosset skin with plant- and mineral-derived products whenever possible.
Rich browns and greens cover nearly every inch of Origins Massage and Bodyworks, summoning the serenity of an ancient forest. Teeming with plant fronds, mud-hued walls, and dark wooden floors, this tranquil space encourages visitors to ponder beginnings, from the seedling that grows into a towering redwood tree to the sense of calm that springs from a gentle touch. Licensed massage therapists guide individuals and couples to private rooms, where warm beds and soft music help them shed stress from the outset. After the therapist compiles a health history, the client identifies tender muscles, stiff joints, and other sources of pain and tension. If desired, staffers may also perform skin treatments such as organic facials and exfoliating foot scrubs.
During the studio's signature Swedish massage, a therapist cultivates relaxation using long, flowing strokes, light taps, and gentle pressure. Each session is tailored to specific pressure preferences and may include trigger-point therapy if the client is suffering from muscle knots. To minimize friction and maximize comfort, the therapist may daub the skin with massage oil as smooth as a saxophone dipped in chocolate fondue.
Nose-pleasing aromas and the sounds of trickling water dance through the air in the exotic serenity room at Nevaeh Wellness Spa, where professional therapists aim to rejuvenate clients with hydrating facials, massages, and body treatments. Specialists focused on restoring a balance between clients' bodies and minds are experienced and educated in fields such as aesthetics, medical skin care, and massage. While enjoying treatments such as Ayurvedic foot massages or bamboo-extract décolleté exfoliation, clients are offered organic elixirs and teas that allow drinkers to focus deeply on their qi while forgetting problematic investments in that land-ski company.
Doctors of Chiropractic Stephanie and Wayne Higashi founded HEALTH ATLAST Fountain Valley to offer their patients multidisciplinary healing with an emphasis on doctor coordination. HEALTH ATLAST Fountain Valley houses a variety of specialties and disciplines because its practitioners tend to clients' ailments with chiropractic care and acupuncture. The health centers also offer therapeutic massage and nutritional counseling.
The licensed aestheticians and massage therapists at Modern Day Spa soothe the skin and relax the mind with beauty and bodywork treatments. The spa's facials cleanse pores, fight acne, and fight the signs of aging, whereas the full-body seaweed mask detoxifies from head to toe and provides excellent camouflage during games of Marco Polo. Swedish massage, shiatsu, and reflexology techniques knead tension from tired muscles and recalibrate energy levels during tranquil 60-minute sessions.
After 25 years in the salon industry, Breathe Salon & Spa owner Sue Tonyan knows how to create a relaxing atmosphere. Sue and her team of certified salon professionals prettify guests with services ranging from facials and hair extensions to medical-grade therapies such as Botox. Above all, friendly staffers hope to create an oasis for clients to escape life’s stressors, such as overstuffed schedules or a child’s discovery of “The Song That Doesn’t End.” Staffers favor products by such high-end brands as KMS California, Dermalogica and Jan Marini.
