Salon and Spa DV8's squad of aesthetic authorities dedicate their expertise to embellishing hair and body with an array of beauty-boosting services. The salon's styling stations––which are framed by ornate columns reminiscent of ancient Greek architecture––allow stylists ample space to cut and style hair or give the Lincoln Memorial a crew cut ($20–$45). Guests can dignify their digits with a pedicure that smoothes craggy nail outcroppings and applies a shiny topcoat ($42). Strategic waxing removes hair from chests ($40), backs ($50), and bikini areas ($45) to postpone hostile hair takeovers.
Licensed massage therapist Jennifer Dianne Poston honed her healing touch at Southeastern School of Massage, and now sends calming ripples across muscle ponds in her own Peaceful Mind studio. Clients can solicit Jennifer's flowing Swedish strokes to banish tension, or alleviate lower-layer aches with trigger point techniques or deep-tissue pressure.
At Renew My Body Massage Therapy, licensed and certified clinical massage bodyworkers treat clients to more than seven massage modalities, including Swedish, sports, deep tissue, cosmetic, and prenatal. Knead-a-thons take place in warm, comfortable rooms, where therapists can play soft music to help guests relax. To maintain visitors' privacy and comfort, the spa doesn't require that customers disrobe entirely during full-body massages, and therapists leave the room any time guests undress. The pamper palace's FAQ emphasizes that patients only need to expose parts of the body being massaged by the therapist, and the spa suggests that clients notify practitioners if they feel any discomfort or get a classic ‘80s jam stuck in their heads.
SoCa Day Spa is devoted to providing relaxation and beautification for their world-weary clients.

Evict painful, burrowing CHUDS from deep within muscle mass with a calming, one-hour, signature massage ($80), which uses different styles such as Swedish, deep tissue, and myofascial massage, to puttifying effect. SoCa's signature facial ($75) enlists the aid of pharmaceutical-grade concentrates to cleanse, tone, restore, and balance your tableau of sensory experience.
