At Hawaii Plastic Surgery Associates' multiple locations, an affable staff of medical aestheticians, nurse aids, and massage therapists takes cues from board-certified plastic surgeons while administering beauty treatments and sigh-inducing spa services for the body and skin. Drs. Todd Mirzai and Bao Phan cushion surgical procedures with IV-based anesthesia and complimentary house calls at each office's private recovery bungalows. The team also specializes in a variety of noninvasive cosmetic procedures, such as Botox injections, microdermabrasion, oxygen facials, and prop-mustache removal. Staff members go to great lengths to ensure clients' comfort, offering airport pickup and drop-off, grocery-store runs, and medical sitters.
Medical technology doesn't allow us to trade out our bodies for a new one––yet. Until that time comes, it's incredibly important that we take care of the ones we have. That's where licensed massage therapist Patricia Medina comes in. In her more than 15 years of bodywork experience, she's become an expert at tailoring massages to the needs of the individual. Guests can request Patricia's flowing Swedish strokes with soothing aromatherapy, or access lower-layer tension with a deep-tissue session. Exfoliating body scrubs are also available.

Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and the Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, The Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Clients who arrive to lessons partner-less will be paired up with instructors to help assess their current skill level and make recommendations on the most appropriate program. Throughout group lessons, instructors teach the foundations of dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow. These lessons are then used as a foundation for clients to learn more intermediate and advanced moves.
