Candlelight illuminates a swirling jacuzzi at Spa Pura, a 7,000-square-foot relaxation mecca where clients shed stress as they don a robe and slippers before indulging in one of the spa’s many services. Aestheticians perform a full spectrum of facial treatments that leverage clay masks, SkinCeuticals products, and vitamin infusions to help the skin to regain its glow. Teams of massage therapists welcome clients onto beds and pore over muscles with relaxing strokes, and body scrubbers and waxing technicians exfoliate and smooth frames. Clients hesitant to return to the outside world can bide their time in the spa’s raindrop showers or eucalyptus steam room, which doubles as koala heaven.
The signature massage blends the techniques of Swedish, deep tissue, and energy massages, and can be full body or focused on your body's particular bothers. Heated towels and aromatherapy pillows for your back, neck, and eyes complement the intensely focused muscle-melting strokes. Then, during reflexology, one of OM's licensed therapists will apply precise pressure at the zones that spread like a map across the foot (each zone corresponds to an organ in the body). Pressing and kneading a specific zone can enliven its linked organ and promote renewed integration of the body's systems. OM tailors each treatment to the client's needs, so they're flexible enough for common and esoteric health hankerings.
The aesthetic specialists at VOGA salonspa understand that beauty routines can become daunting, especially when hair and skin don't always cooperate.

Along with haircare and styling for men and women, they offer rejuvenating facials, chemical peels, and airbrush tanning.

Aestheticians exfoliate complexions with one of their relaxing facials, uncovering brighter skin and erasing war paint left over from games of capture the flag. A collection of massage services coaxes tension from muscles, and body treatments remove dead skin cells from the surface with handmade scrubs or a eucalyptus body wash that cleans off unwanted grime and attracts neighborhood koala bears.
