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.

There are seven different kinds of facials at Blissful Spa—such a selection that one isn’t even for the face. Along with acne, anti-aging, and rosacea facials, the spa also renders a back facial treatment that cleans pores deeply and removes dead skin or the mesh-y debris of an oft-worn hockey jersey. The spa's aestheticians also perform acid peels that improve tone and texture and waxing services that remove unwanted hair by the root.
The staff at Waxing by Taline understands that not everyone has a lot of extra time for pampering themselves, which is why the salon's Brazilian waxes only take 15 minutes. A CIDESCO-trained aesthetician with more than 10 years of experience conducts the speedy session using Resin? by Hairaway, a special wax that decreases inflammation. As for visages, custom facials aim to treat excess oil and acne.
