A lobby decked out with leather chairs, stained wood, tiles, and flowers greets visitors to Massage Bliss & Day Spa, preparing them for a spa visit that melts away the stress and responsibilities of the modern workday. Soft, low lights and gauzy curtains hang over heated massage beds, and two candlelit couples-massage suites surround pairs in a sensual glow during romantic anniversaries or ill-advised first dates. Deep-cleaning facials flush out clogged pores and stimulate blood flow with natural ingredients, such as apple pulp and flaxseed, and aromatic salts and coconut oils soothe digits during spa mani-pedis. The day spa's arsenal of sophisticated technologies beautifies and rejuvenates bodies, with its infrared sauna detoxifying and purifying skin and its TriActive laser smoothing out dimpling and cellulite.
Mana Medical Spa's skincare specialists help patients "enhance their Mana," or essence, with wrinkle- and stress-reducing treatments. During facials and peels, aestheticians cloak reposing mugs in a collagen-renewing formula to fade indicators of time, such as fine lines and page-a-day calendars grafted to foreheads. The mentally wound can let loose with the ancient healing modality of massage therapy, which targets and alleviates chronic conditions such as headaches, carpal tunnel, and arthritis.
Picasso Day Spa & Salon takes its name from salon founder David Manaute's favorite artist. In many ways, the stylists channel the painting paragon by treating their clients as though they were canvases, using haircuts, color, waxing, and airbrush tanning to achieve an artistic personal aesthetic. The team makes its process collaborative, though, soliciting input from clients when coming up with a style, unlike Picasso—he pretended not to hear the things his canvases said. Their services take place in a building as equally beautiful as the custom looks they craft for clients. The spa's decor showcases a European atmosphere, and reproductions of Picasso's artwork hang on the walls.
As their name suggests, the staff at Xanadu Day Spa strive to create a paradise filled with beauty and relaxation. Their massage therapists enhance hot-stone, sports, and prenatal treatments with a slew of natural products believed to enrich skin. These products also come into play during nail services that, like many of Xanadu’s treatments, come with an upgrade called an “X Factor.” During a manicure, for example, the nail technician will dip hands in warm paraffin wax and exfoliate any dead or dulling skin cells with a gentle scrub. With their services, they aim to inspire the same relaxing experience that clients would get from visiting an exotic locale, like Fiji, or a massage bed floating around Fiji. Their service menu also includes spa packages for groups and kids, as well as couples’-massage lessons from one of the therapists on staff.
Flickering candles softly illuminate Alpha Beauty Clinic's numerous private treatment rooms, where clients relax during services ranging from soothing Swedish massages and firming seaweed wraps for the entire body to specialized facials, such as the Cleopatra 24 Karat Gold facial and the Japanese Pearl facial. The unusual treatments easily attract new clients, yet the spa's welcoming, skilled staffers help to maintain relationships with regulars who've been stopping by since Alpha Beauty Clinic first opened in 1987. The treatment menu isn't the only thing with international flair at Alpha Beauty Clinic. Team members hail from around the globe, and many boast more than a decade's worth of experience. The multicultural staff can speak and recite slam poetry in an assortment of languages including Hindi, Spanish, Italian, and Tagalog.
