For more than 15 years, the staff at Beauty From The Inside Out has made sure the business lives up to its name. From the inside, clients are rejuvenated with the aid of colon-hydrotherapy sessions that flush away toxins and impacted waste in the lower digestive tract, and detox baths for the hands and feet pull impurities from the skin's pores. And on the outside, technicians remove hairs from the skin with full-body waxing and facial threading. Smooth skin is also achieved with PerfectSense Paraffin, treatments, which hydrate hands and feet with a warm wax made with 11 vitamins including vitamin E and B12 nutrients.
Working mere blocks from the Pacific Ocean, Six Degrees Salon and Spa’s team of stylists distills the sea’s natural beauty and calming influence into beauty treatments under the guidance of co-owners Joel and Frida Silva, authorities in haircare and skincare services, respectively. While stylists trim hair and wax errant fringe in the second floor’s open, hardwood-floored salon upstairs, licensed massage therapists knead out kinks and aestheticians unleash powerful facials and peels on blemishes in the downstairs spa and boutique. Armed with products from top-tier companies such as Obagi and Moroccanoil, the beautifiers render coifs and skin more healthy and radiant than a nutritionist's grocery list left in a running microwave.
In his early days as a massage therapist, Sean Struxness was struck by the stark contrasts in quality between high-end and low-end spas, noticing a large gap between the two. He founded The Massage Spot to fill that gap, partly because he no longer wanted to mow the gap's out-of-control grass. Though it forgoes the locker rooms and showers that full day spas may offer, Struxness's mini day spa doesn't skimp on the tranquil atmosphere, as it features flickering candles, soothing music, and a relaxing zen area. The service menu isn't lacking, either; The Massage Spot's team of professionals performs haircuts and deep conditionings, nine types of facials, spa pedicures with aromatherapy soaks, and Western and Eastern styles of massage therapy.
