Chill & Relax Foot Spa’s licensed massage therapists, Laura Trujillo and Johanna Escobedo, gently apply pressure and hot stones to carefully mapped reflex areas on hands and feet during each 30-minute reflexology session. Soothing reflexology pressure stimulates reflex areas on arms, hands, lower legs, and feet that correspond to specific organs, glands, and body parts, working to manipulate and balance the body's chi, or life energy. Post-session, soothe-seekers may experience a reduction in stress, pain, and Pat Sajak–related night terrors. The salon's lofted ceilings and hanging chandeliers surround guests as they recline in plush, reclining massage chairs replete with a cozy blanket and a walk-in closet.
Salon Benardo believes that natural treatments and products are better not only for clients but also for the earth. That's why it embraces its identity as an Aveda salon, carrying the brand's plant-based products and supplying them to the stylists who cut, color, and texturize clients' hair. The staff on the spa side is equally diligent: aestheticians cleanse faces with custom facials, peels, and other skincare services; massage therapists handle services such as the Caribbean Therapy hand and foot treatment, which is like a cruise through the Bermuda Triangle without the variable gravity and deadly sea hogs.
Declared one of Orange County's Best Day Spas by CBS Los Angeles, Lux Aveda Salon/Spa evokes a sense of glamour with its sleek design and luxurious services. Hairstyling visionaries Wade Zylstra and James Cook preside over three levels of cranial artisans who administer cuts and specialized treatments, and educate clients about haircare, recommending Aveda home-care products to maintain their new looks.
Aveda produces a full line of natural beauty products carried at nearly 7,000 salons and spas. Popular gorgeous makers such as Shampure shampoo and witch-hazel hair spray deliver on Aveda's commitment to well-rounded earthly beauty with eco-friendly packaging cradling ingredients derived from the world's finest and least selfish plants.
Creating artwork that lasts a lifetime is what the tattoo specialists at Electric Chair Tattoo do daily, and that’s why they work closely with clients to fit them with the right piece. Their styles range from religious-themed and surrealism to realism and dark fantasy. The staff at the ink-filled studio also includes a piercing technician capable of adorning nearly any body part with studs, bars, and rings.
Seven days a week, the certified massage therapists at Healthwise Massage work to give their clients a reprieve from emotional and physical stress. First-time massage clients are perfectly primed for a relaxing Swedish massage, which uses a progression of stroking, tapping, and kneading movements to loosen tension and boost circulation. Those in need of focused pressure can try a deep-tissue massage, during which therapists use slow, concentrated pressure to bring relief from chronic pain, immobility, spasms, or involuntary jitterbugging.
