The spa also offers spa parties and the services of a wedding planner and professional photographer, and beauty products and diverse skincare lines address skincare issues with moisturizers, cleansers, and masks.
Relaxation is both a concept and a destination at Soma Health & Fitness, where sleek wooden floors are bathed in the sunbeams streaming in from symmetrical skylights.

A child covered in an ice-cream sundae is usually headed straight for a bath and a time-out. At CupCakes & IceCream Kids Spa and Party Room, however, they're pampered. At the spa, girls are encouraged to soak in soothing ice-cream baths made with their choice of sundae flavors. At spa stations decorated with cheerfully bright pinks and blues, kids can exfoliate their pores with a fruity facial made from natural ingredients or conclude manicures and pedicures with nontoxic Piggy Paint and sprinkles. Makeup sessions further pamper youngsters with beautifying touches such as lipstick, blushes, and facial gems.
Along with pampering children at the spa, CupCakes & IceCream Kids Spa and Party Room hosts soirees that treat girls like royalty. Built around such themes as Diva Bash and Pajama Jam, two-hour parties include decadent options such as Candy Coated polished nails, facials, or updos. Runway fashion shows and karaoke sessions fill the rest of the time, as can add-ons such as a craft station or lessons in boxing out during bouquet tosses.
The stylists at Exhale Beauty Salon & Spa wield Paul Mitchell products as they style natural hair with finger waves and wet sets and as they coat manes with chemical treatments such as Brazilian straightening serums, relaxers, and perms. In addition to hairstyling, the staff members sculpt brows, perform European facials, and add light massages.
When she was still learning the nuances of her craft in massage school, Rhonda Lakip-Ochoa wasted no time sharing her newfound powers with those who needed them most. After classes ended, she?d practice what she?d learned that day on her mother, who had cancer, and the seniors under her charge during a day job as a caregiver. Now, as the principle practitioner at A Healing Touch Massage Therapy/Spa LLC, Rhonda draws upon these formative experiences to soothe clients from all walks of life. During in-office sessions, she unknots kinked muscles with bodywork drawn from massage traditions including deep tissue and hot stone. Rhonda and her team of certified massage therapists also schedule in-home appointments, arriving at area doorsteps bearing massage tables, lotions, and calming music.
Although she?s now a full-fledged massage therapist, Rhonda never forgot her commitment to bringing peace to the infirm. Today, she still caters to clients with Alzheimer's and dementia, easing their ills with strokes that are lighter, slower than usual. She also massages individuals undergoing cancer treatments for free at her Creative Design/Creative Care facility or her A Healing Garden location.
