With so many daily stresses, harmony of body and mind is hard won. Beauty Star Spa is on a mission to make it easier. Combining traditional Chinese bodywork theories with finger pressure and deep elbow rolling, a licensed massage therapist can relieve chronic tension or promote deep relaxation. Each session is paired with the client's choice of sensuous music and soothing massage oil that's colorless, odorless, and completely caffeine free. To make it a full spa day, supplement bodywork with a deep-cleansing facial.

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.
Just walking distance from the Long Beach Convention Center lies a 2,000-square-foot oasis and two-time MyFoxLA Hot List winner. The historic downtown building houses four separate treatment rooms where aestheticians and massage therapists perform a variety of facials, massages, scrubs, wraps, and manicures. Their menu of international therapies borrows seaweed mud and traditions from France, Italy, India, and the Middle East, and their medical facials are performed under the direction of a board-certified dermatologist. In addition to individual clients who arrive solo for a day of pampering, La Dolce Vita invites groups celebrating birthdays, wedding days, and spa-appreciation days.
At KBS Fitness, it's certified personal trainer Kingi Santiel's goal to make exercise engaging and not intimidating. That much is apparent from his outdoor boot-camp programs, where exercisers of all fitness levels perform push-ups, stair-climbing, and other body-weight exercises under the sun's rays. To complement those group workouts, Santiel and his team also bring to the table personal training, nutritional counseling, and massage therapy.
