Focusing on specific body parts, Beaches Rehabilitation Center incorporates a collaborative approach of physical therapy and massage therapy to restore balance to the body, alleviate pain, and enable patients to live normal lives. Guided by an individualized approach to therapy and an emphasis on functional mobility, patients of all ages are tended by the same therapist throughout their treatment plans. The staff's extensive training in the treatment of orthopedic conditions and post-operative care aims to quickly restore clients to full functionality, using elements of manual therapy and exercise to address muscular limitations and improving joint motion. Founder and president Anya Johnson, a speech and language pathologist, also helps patients with conditions from stuttering to facial paralysis and the effects of neurological disorders.
The attentive and friendly aestheticians at Taylor Lane Day Spa have been soaking weary appendages in soothing baths for 13 years. Arm greeters are met with a basic manicure, where nail hedging creates clean lines on hand lawns. Tips are further sprinkled and soaked with water before being polished with your choice of colors ($18). Feet follow suit with a signature pedicure, soaking in bath salts to unleash dogged fatigue, stress, and clouds of feral butterflies ($35). A foot curator prevents dead skin cells from momentarily resurrecting, ensuring that both ground navigators exit the spa feeling tingly soft. Menthol massage oils further alleviate fluid retention, while a moisturizer locks in hydration where it counts. Finish phalange-centric experiences with a reflexology treatment ($10), which massages feet to the internal health beat of various organs and body bass drums.
Cynthia, the licensed massage therapist behind Cyn's RelaxZen Massage Boutique, helps her guests leave the sterile, fluorescent-light-tinged world of the office behind. She works in a massage room adorned with leopard-print drapes and verdant plants. These decorations surround a massage table dressed in zebra-print sheets and a furry blanket, where she mends ailing muscles with her own custom blend of massage techniques. Cynthia also draws on an array of modalities, including Swedish, deep-tissue, neuromuscular, and trigger-point massage. She soothes tired hands and feet with acupressure and reflexology; cossets clients at all stages of life with infant, prenatal, and geriatric massage; and adds complimentary aromatherapy to all sessions lasting an hour or more.
When she isn't kneading knots out, Cynthia uses her skills to bring recuperation to parties and events. She also helps clients detox and relax in her spa room, which features an infrared sauna, a shower, and the most zen thing there is: an entire village of perfectly potty-trained newborn puppies.

For an additional fee, guests at The Mona Lisa Day Spa and Salon can opt to slip into a hydrotherapy tub or watch their once shy pores open in an aromatherapy steam room before any service begins. As soothing music placates ears and soft lighting makes everyone look more attractive, the spa's team of expert aestheticians melds Western and Eastern techniques. Warm wax gently removes hair from the body, and Japanese-inspired body treatments incorporate cherry blossom, rice-powder exfoliation, and a reflexology massage. Facials purify and nourish skin with Eco-Cert organic plant-derived ingredients and European techniques, and cosmetic services, such as makeup application and eyelash extensions, further beautify bodies. The Mona Lisa also offers massage packages which also allow individuals or couples the chance to pamper themselves and enjoy a day of relaxation.
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.

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 waxing 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.
Drawing inspiration from the old-school barbershops of times past, where barbers would take their time with each cut and shave, International Blades and Shears staffs master barbers who perform numerous deluxe grooming treatments for men. Barbers offer both clipper and scissor cuts, each conducted with detail and focus, as well as soothing hot-towel shaves that render skin soft and refreshed. Other services include men's manicures and pedicures, facials, and massages. Ken Moore, the president of International Blades and Shears, is a military veteran who's spent more than 15 years working as a barber.
