The thought of snow-free winters drew Dr. Sandeep V. Patel back to Daytona Beach from New York City, where he earned his doctorate in dental surgery from New York University. At his practice, My Daytona Dental, he performs a full slate of dental services that he honed while working on the Upper West Side. His specialties range from preventive exams and teeth whitening to veneers, implants and cavity fillings.

Warmed bamboo branches , heated river rocks , and peppermint oils are just a few of the natural elements that the licensed massage therapists at NewAgeTouch incorporate into their treatments. Salt scrubs marry skincare and massage, loosening muscles with hot towels before a mixture of Dead Sea salt, aromatherapy, and oil are applied to the skin in a cadence that mimics Swedish massage strokes. Afterward, skin feels softer to the touch than a coat made from luxuriant muppet fur. NewAge Touch also sells skincare products, massage supplies, and pillow sprays to soothe the senses just before bed.
Within the berry-colored walls at Simply Soothing Massage, therapists soothe stressed clients with personalized massage treatments. Massage modalities, such as deep-tissue or hot-stone massage, work to enhance moods by increasing the amount of serotonin, dopamine, and knock-knock jokes in the mind, while also prodding toxins from the body. Clients can further purify themselves with ear candling to remove excess wax and sugar scrubs to slough away dead skin. To extend its range of services, Simply Soothing Massage also employs hairstylists who sculpt coifs for men and women before fluffing manes with a blow-dry.
Armed with the knowledge that every person’s skin is different, the staff at The Hot Spot Tanning offers clients access to a range of UV-and sunless-tanning methods that suit many skin types. The salon features five tiers of Level 1–5 UV, the latter of which build upon the basics of Level 1 beds by adding in amenities such as cooling fans and pressurized bulbs for faster, burn-reducing results. Staff members also accommodate the needs of clients who prefer UV-free methods with automated VersaSpa spray-tan booths, which dispense a pigmented mist to create a head-to-toe tan in 48 seconds.
