Named the People's Choice best day spa by The Fresno Bee in 2010, Zena's Day Spa pampers guests with a full range of relaxing spa services. Zena's soaks guest in a quiet, warm, cream-colored ambience while a professional staff blasts away stress from the body like a soothing pleasure laser. During each paraffin pedicure ($60), a foot restoration expert soaks sock fillers in a whirlpool, exfoliates the skin, rejuvenates cuticles, shapes and polishes the nails, and massages the feet like tingly vibrations emanating from a massive speaker during an 80s hair band ballad sung in French. To top off pedicures, feet are infused with aromatherapy paraffin to soften dried-out skin. Next, a certified massage therapist will exorcise mischievous, knot-inducing spirits from the muscles during a 30-minute body massage ($40). Customers can also upgrade to a 30-minute couples massage for an additional $40. Potential effects of each massage may lead to relaxation, increased circulation, and the body purring like a gently petted tuba.
