Happy, healthy, and satisfied clients are the goal at Body Connections Spa, which offers a trio of services all designed to meet that aim. Therapists and aestheticians on staff specialize in massage therapy, detoxifying LED therapy, and customized, organic spray tans made from free-range sunbeams. The LED therapy takes place in a futuristic-looking chamber called the SlimLine Oxygen Pod, which envelops you in aromatherapy and pure oxygen while lights work to relieve pain, torch calories, and remove toxins.
Hot stones and aromatherapy oils gently glide across the body inside private rooms at @ease Spa, unwinding tight muscles and calming tense minds. Aromatherapy is also used during facials to rebalance the complexion and make sure clients don't leave with their faces smelling like regular old skin. Other relaxing services at the spa include a full-body sugar or Dead Sea mud rub and Jin Shin Jyutsu, an ancient technique where light pressure is applied to 26 specific points on the body to relieve aches and improve respiration. No matter the treatment, the spa's massage therapists are glad to customize pressure to each guest's liking, and afterward, a complimentary sauna and shower await.
The certified massage therapists at Harmony Within Massage Therapy aim to reduce pain and improve range of motion with a number of massage modalities that range from classic Swedish massage to four-handed massage work. Raindrop therapy uses essential oils and acupressure to help treat pain, and Reiki aims to channel energy, bringing balance and harmony to the body. Meanwhile, the Isabell Gatto method uses the therapist’s fingertips to apply pressure to 50 specific points on the body, opening blocked energy pathways. Two private massage rooms provide a tranquil setting as candles flicker and warmth streams from a heated massage table equipped with a blanket, and heated neck and eye pillows.
The soft warmth of a terry-cloth robe sashaying across the shins. The gentle pressure of a complimentary scalp rub during a honey-oatmeal or peppermint body wrap. The Mezzaluna Day Spa experience is all about the little things, so the house aestheticians ensure bodies luxuriate from head to toe-tip. After promoting circulation with a Mezzaluna signature stone massage, patrons can recondition mugs with Dermalogica products, de-fuzz under the practiced wrist flicks of a waxing guru, or utilize a steam room or private shower to fog up the face of a clownish magic mirror.
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and hair-removal services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
It’s all about relaxation and privacy at The Spa at Westwood. In three different rooms, the staff pampers guests with facials, massages, and body treatments such as a peppermint seaweed wrap. For facials, the team uses top-quality products from Dermalogica and Christine Valmy, with a variety of cleansers, moisturizers, and creams that target diverse skin needs. In a mere 10 minutes, they can also help guests get bronze with a natural, spray-on tanning system—a statistically more effective option than placing some hair, a jilted lover's necklace, and a bronze medal inside a cauldron and incanting Beach Boys songs.
