During his college football career, Santiago "Jimmy" Ayala got well acquainted with sore muscles and injuries—experience that inspired him to pursue his massage-therapy license. After earning his degree in physical education, Ayala spent a decade honing his massage skills in five-star resorts, chiropractor's offices, physical-therapy settings, and DMV waiting rooms. As owner of Santiago's Massage, he employs modalities such as Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, and hot-stone massage to soothe achy or injured muscles in sessions that he customizes with aromatherapy.
Tropical Resort Tans has been bronzing bodies since the Reagan administration when indoor tanning was something of a novelty. Since those early days, they have snatched up a Smart Tan certification and the official endorsement of the sun.

As the practice's name suggests, Doctor of Chiropractic Jeffrey Kuppersmith and his team take a full-body wellness approach with each patient, in which they consider the person as a whole to identify the underlying causes of individual health issues. The process begins as Dr. Kuppersmith conducts a chiropractic examination, takes x-rays, and observes clients as they do the hokey pokey. This information helps him design custom care plans, free of drugs or invasive procedures, that span three phases: relief care, corrective care, and wellness care. Each phase may integrate multiple techniques, such as spinal correction, massage, corrective exercise, and lifestyle and nutritional advice, to help patients achieve optimal health.

Elite Laser & Spa’s stained-glass windows, large rugs, and potted plants differ from the all-white, minimalistic aesthetic of other med spas. The homey surroundings reflect owner Natasha Cambridge’s goal of creating a comfortable space where clients can relax as they receive spa services including chemical peels, microdermabrasions, and facials that use diamond particles to deeply exfoliate while softening and tightening complexions. In addition to being a licensed aesthetician, Cambridge is a certified laser technician boasting 10 years of experience with the Cynosure Alexandrite and Candela GentleLase Plus lasers, which she uses to remove unwanted hair, spider veins, and pigmentation.
