BodyCentre Day Spa often looks beneath the surface, searching for ways to make clients feel rejuvenated inside and out. This commitment even helped the Costa Mesa location earn a spot on the CBS Los Angeles list of 2014's Best Day Spas In Orange County.
The spas' massage therapists perform a range of relaxing and mind-centering modalities that can relieve chronic aches while restoring a greater sense of focus and self-awareness. This includes everything from deep-tissue work and acupressure to shiatsu and reflexology. The spas' skincare treatments adopt a similarly broad approach, improving tone and texture as they address individual needs with a combination of specialized products, noninvasive techniques, and advanced technologies—including hyperbaric oxygen and sea fennel stem cells. For a thoroughly cleansing experience, the centers even offer detoxifying colon-hydrotherapy sessions.
The caretakers of Healing Horizons inspire beauty on the outside and thorough wellbeing on the inside. Their repertoire of treatments includes body scrubs, wraps, and facials that fight outward signs of aging, while health-centric infrared sauna sessions chase out internal toxins by making clients sweat. The rejuvenation haven also caters to couples with side-by-side massage, letting pairs enjoy some shared downtime before the nightly debate tournament.
Aesthetician Lynne Merriam applies her passion for skin care to bolstering clients' beauty and confidence. She improves skin's tone and quality with facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and body wraps. Waxing services are also available.
At Zen Bodywork, holistic health practitioner Jerri Le kneads muscles and recalibrates energy levels. Her favorite modality for easing stress and improving flexibility is Thai massage, which incorporates a beneficial medley of pressure, stretching, and fish sauce. Classic Swedish massage employs gliding, kneading, and cross-fiber friction, while hot stone massage makes use of warm rocks and aromatic essential oils. Specialized neuromuscular therapy unites the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, helping to eradicate pain and restore structural integrity.
Silken pillows, oversized hand fans, and orchids create a small sanctuary away from the bustle of daily life. A softly lit hallway is blanketed in golden yellow walls and doors that lead to private treatments rooms. Inside, licensed massage therapists relax muscles with deep-tissue and shiatsu techniques, warmed stones, and aromatherapy. In other rooms, licensed aestheticians scrub faces clean with facials, buff bodies with sugar and salt scrubs, and wax unwanted hair on legs and tails.
When clients open the door to Daravadee Spa & Massage Therapy, the heady scents of lemongrass and jasmine come flowing past noses before eyes lock onto decorative Thai statues and delicate orchids. Within candlelit treatment rooms, staff members trained in ancient eastern healing techniques employ their skills to soothe muscle tension and purify complexions. Among the therapies offered at Daravadee, yoga-like Thai massage, herbal compresses of tamarind and kaffir leaves, and all-natural spa products set the center apart from other relaxation oases. But Daravadee’s most unique offering is guasa. A body-scrub treatment rooted in Chinese healing practices, guasa helps boost circulation and detoxify skin with the help of a wooden sloughing instrument. Each treatment is performed in a private room, ensuring privacy and comfort for clients and their shy backs.
