The exuberant exfoliators at Royale European Skin Care wipe out no-good skin cells with thorough multistep treatments that leave epidermises enlivened. The go-to spa facial polishes peeper chrome with a basic cleansing, a pH balancing, and a moisturizing mask finish ($84), and the intense glow advanced facial targets dry, sensitive, or oily skin types with an aromatherapy-based remedy ($94). The warm algae wrap treats trunks by blanketing bodies in vitamin-rich seaweed smoothies for 25 minutes to detoxify and hydrate hides ($99). Guests sip tea in the sitting room between services, relaxing before rooting out unwanted follicle flowers with full face ($40) or Brazilian bikini ($55) waxing services. Stop being mistaken for squiggly-mouthed emoticons with the hydrating lip treatment, which rinses out wrinkles and reshapes kisser contours ($15).
Salon Michelle's legion of experienced stylists clips new cuts and shades them to materialize each client's envisioned look. Amid the salon's chicly austere, wood-floored confines, haircuts commence with a soothing shampoo enacted with opulent I.C.O.N. and Keune products. Next, a fluent hair whisperer tames tangles into desired shapes such as a sleek bob, staggered layers, or an icosidodecahedron. Each strand-centric service caps with a blow-dry and style to impart finishing polish on locks.
Posh Salon and Spa doesn't just pamper clients with its services: the staff enhances relaxation by offering every guest over 21 a complimentary glass of wine. A team of expert stylists transform hair with custom cuts and styling, full coloring, and tinting. Meanwhile, in private candle-lit rooms, licensed massage therapists soothe aching muscles with hot-stone and couples massages. Aestheticians perform full-body waxing and sugaring, leaving their clients with smooth skin and the ability to body-surf directly out the door afterward. Posh's interior is also designed to help clients relax: warm earth-toned walls are hung with eclectic art, and a small fireplace set in one wall crackles with orange flame.
At Raindrop Yoga Studio, instructors use yoga to help students heal injuries, detox the organs, decrease stress, and sleep more deeply. They do so through three types of yoga: heated flow to help with breath control, candlelit yin to release stress, and vinyasa to build strength and elevate the heart rate. The studio also offers bodywork in form of massage and Reiki.
Dr. Chen-Ying (Richard) Huang has a former patient to thank for his foray into holistic medicine. It was during his time as an occupational therapist in Taiwan that he noticed a dramatic surge in progress for one of his recovering patients. Upon inquiring into this change, Dr. Huang found that the patient had tried acupuncture to augment his rehab, with great results. That's when Dr. Huang began to explore acupuncture and other alternative forms of healing. At Amazing Alternative Acupuncture, he combines Western and Chinese medicinal approaches to assuage physical and emotional pain with treatments such as acupuncture, Chinese herbal supplements, and NAET allergy relief.
