Though having a board-certified doctor perform one's beauty treatments can make one feel at ease, having two can allay even the strongest of apprehensions. Dr. Khaja Asadullah and Dr. Ayesha Akbar both dispense body-sculpting services, bio-identical horomone-replacement treatments, IV nutritional therapy, and facial-filler injections with the expertise that earned them certification in age-management medicine. Their combined knowledge of this and preventive medicine helps them to fulfill myriad wellness desires, such as shedding years from patients' faces, pounds from their midsection, nutritional deficiencies, and mind-controlling xenos from their scalp.

Body Bliss's certified massage therapist, Laura Dillon, has been massaging tender physiques for the last two years, specializing in three different types of muscular manipulation. The Swedish massage kneads out kinks after hours of assembling Ikea skyscrapers. The deep-tissue massage delves into the fascia's utmost depths, rooting out the sources of pain and releasing the body's pent-up balrogs. Finally, a hot-stone massage loosens muscles, calms the mind, and settles the central nervous system with precisely positioned warm stones. Whatever finger-flavor you choose, Body Bliss continues the thousand-year tradition of using human touch to reduce anxiety and depression, improve concentration, and develop cutting-edge break-dancing moves.
The airbrush artists, stylists, and nail and wax technicians at Ungaro's Le'Spa know that there's no point carrying out aesthetic services if you don't have the right products. To that end, they both use the spa's own line of signature solutions and call upon brands such as Aveda, Bioelements, Rusk, and OPI. Their UV-free tanning spray is applied via an airbrush delivery system, lending a sun-kissed look without risking exposure to harmful rays. On the other side of this full-service salon and spa, stylists add shine and luster to new 'dos with coloring, highlighting, smoothing treatments.
At Sunshine Studio, radiance comes from within. The teachers at Sunshine Studio embrace yoga as a holistic health treatment, combining it with other forms of exercise—such as Pilates—known to strengthen the body while alleviating or preventing injury. Outside of the classroom, massage therapists sooth muscles with seven distinct modalities, including therapeutic massage, acupressure, and hot-stone massage.
The studio's spa technicians also coax out each client's inner light with rejuvenating skin care and body treatments. Customized to meet the needs of all skin types, their revitalizing facial restores lost youth with a full package of hydration, cleansing, and exfoliation. Technicians also rid clients of negative energy, removing pent-up toxins with ear candling and ionic foot baths and restoring respiratory clarity with aromatherapy-based raindrop therapy.
