Before Art Stone was head of Total Woman Gym & Spa, he ran a chain of salons. His female clientele loved their custom cuts, but California had no shortage of stylists—what they really struggled to find was day-spa pampering and weight-loss assistance, all in one spot. Stone listened, and in 1965, created precisely the sanctuary they were looking for.
Holistic well-being often requires using multiple types of treatments to make bodies feel great. So Feel Well 4 Life employs everyone from colon hydrotherapists to certified aestheticians, some of who also specialize in practices such as therapeutic bodywork.

Therapeutic massages help visitors relieve muscular tension and become more limber than Silly Putty after it's run over by a steamroller.

At Amazing Touch, licensed massage therapist Kelly Zahniser strives to avail clients of the many physical and emotional benefits of massage therapy. In service of this goal, she soothes muscles with modalities ranging from pregnancy massage to reflexology and eases tension with mineral-rich salt stones found in the Himalayas atop a yeti's pile of bills. Zahniser complements her relaxing massages with detoxifying body wraps and fragrant essential oils. She also travels to clients' homes to spritz bodies with spray-tanning solutions or stage spa parties that furnish on-the-spot pampering for pre-wedding festivities or girls' nights out.
Just a stone's throw from the ocean, Pure Body Wellness Center takes advantage of the smell of salt in the air and the sounds of gently crashing waves to cultivate a tranquil ambiance. Private treatment rooms add to the relaxation, enabling clients to kick back in peace while estheticians swaddle bodies in body wraps or dig out dirt and loose change from pores during facials. Other staffers, meanwhile, focus on overall health with private colon hydrotherapy and acupuncture sessions. Even the center?s manicures and pedicures happen in private rooms, where clients sink into cozy chairs while technicians beautify fingers and toes.

At the Tanning Spa, staff members harness King Midas?s gilded touch with custom airbrushing, Mystic spray tans, and a slew of UV beds. Sessions take place in private treatment rooms, fully stocked with chilled or heated aromatherapy towels, bathrobes, and Bose speakers for blasting favorite tunes or bingo calls. The spa?s automated Mystic booth spritzes bodies with a skin-dimming blend of aloe vera, DHA, and optional bronzer, or custom hues come courtesy of trained airbrush techs and Infinity Sun formula. For UV veneers, a diverse collection of tanning beds, including the Magic 636, swaddles upright or prone clients in bulbs culled from the sun's tulip fields.
