Estrella Massage Therapy's Estrella Ortega trained at the Academy for Massage Therapy Training. There, she cultivated her skills in Swedish, deep-tissue, trigger-point, and prenatal modalities. She also performs spa treatments such as mud and paraffin masks, and hot-stone treatments for feet and hands—which, since everything's bigger in Texas, are actually hot-bolder treatments.
As the clinic's name suggests, Male Medical Group specializes in treating two problems that are faced by many men—low testosterone and erectile disfunction.

The silhouette professionals at Zespa enhance physiques with non-invasive, FDA-approved Zerona laser treatments, the Venus Freeze skin-rejuvenation system, and Lipo-Light technology. Comprehensive body-contouring plans encourage healthier habits and lasting inch loss by harnessing Zerona's cold-laser technology, which liquefies lipids at the cellular level, allowing the fat to run screaming from the body like a donut that mistakenly ends up in a health-food store. A series of treatments can shrink the circumference of the waist, hips, thighs, or other target areas. Venus Freeze, which Zespa compares to a hot-stone massage, works to tighten skin, reducing wrinkles and cellulite and making skin appear as youthful-looking as a puppy wearing pigtails. The non-invasive Lipo-Light uses LED technology to directly target fat cells in problem areas such as the abs, arms, and neck.
Miriam Figueroa, a holistic wellness counselor, licensed massage therapist, and aesthetician, spent more than 20 years in the health and beauty industry, staffing five-star hotel spas and then founding her own luxurious center, Spatini Holistic Health. Her spa specializes in M’lis wellness programs, treatment packages that reduce stress and target specific ailments—from cellulite to arthritis—by drawing on the interrelations between mind, body, and soul.
A suite of traditional spa treatments flanks the holistic programs. Facials run the gamut from deep cleanses to nonsurgical face-lifts. Seven available styles of massage encompass the gliding strokes of Swedish and hot-stone massage, which the ancients discovered using stones warmed by confused mother chickens. Body polishes exfoliate away dry skin, an ideal prep for a botanical Bronze Biologic formula that leaves behind sunless, natural-looking tans.
You don’t need to set foot in Royal VI to get a radiant face. Sure, the spa keeps a team of trained skincare experts on staff, and the simple geometry of the slate-and-white decor may urge visitors to stay a while. But Royal VI’s real specialty lies in its prefabricated facial masks, which work their magic whether clients are in an aesthetician’s chair or curled up at home. With roots in Japanese skincare principles, the masks brim with natural botanicals, herbal extracts, and clinically proven active ingredients that tackle blemishes from a variety of angles. From the oil and acne of youth to the fine lines of turning from a puppet into a real person, clients can ease their individual problems with one of nine specialized masks. Of course, no spa would be complete without a little pampering: Royal VI also curates a menu of facial services that call on powerful botanicals, natural enzymes, and diamond microdermabrasion wands to polish faces in the spa’s tranquil environs.
Analike Skin & Laser Spa draws its moniker from the Hawaiian translation of the owner's first name, Anne. This nod to her ancestry is part of her goal to create a spa that embodies “a genuine friendliness and a caring touch influenced [by] native Hawai’ian culture." At the spa, her staff embraces these ideals. Friendly yet professional, these licensed medical aestheticians tailor the wide array of treatments offered at the spa. The Aloha treatment, for example, incorporates a custom mask and relaxing upper-body massage. Other body-coddling offerings, such as the foot-therapy service with sea stones and glycolic acid, help clients enjoy the benefits of a trip to Hawaii without having to deal with long flights or the coconut cannons manned by the mongooses that guard its shores.
