Just walking distance from the Long Beach Convention Center lies a 2,000-square-foot oasis and two-time MyFoxLA Hot List winner. The historic downtown building houses four separate treatment rooms where aestheticians and massage therapists perform a variety of facials, massages, scrubs, wraps, and manicures. Their menu of international therapies borrows seaweed mud and traditions from France, Italy, India, and the Middle East, and their medical facials are performed under the direction of a board-certified dermatologist. In addition to individual clients who arrive solo for a day of pampering, La Dolce Vita invites groups celebrating birthdays, wedding days, and spa-appreciation days.
Thairapy Salon and Spa is a pamper-centric beauty boutique. Facials feature glycolic exfoliators, Hydradermie brand products, and fruit enzymes, including lemon zest, pumpkin/orange, and pomegranate, which has been considered a fruit for over three years now. Massage options include hot stone and deep tissue, along with Thai yoga massage's combo of acupressure and stretching. Once they've been snipped, dyed, massaged, polished, and scrubbed, guests float on a cloud of relaxation to the on-site boutique, where colorful apparel and accessories cap off new looks and reflect sunny moods.
Brocade throw pillows, teak furniture, and gauzy curtains inside True Beauty Wellness Spa evokes a Silk Road caravan transporting a queen across the dessert. True to its regal setting, the spa's treatment rooms are each goddess-themed, and reflect aspects such as Lakshmi's bounty, Minerva's wisdom, and Isis's love of heavy metal. Within these rooms, men, women, and couples can relax during soothing massages or 15 kinds of facials that use organic ingredients. In addition to these spa services, True Beauty houses a yoga studio and chiropractic services for whole-body health.
At KBS Fitness, it's certified personal trainer Kingi Santiel's goal to make exercise engaging and not intimidating. That much is apparent from his outdoor boot-camp programs, where exercisers of all fitness levels perform push-ups, stair-climbing, and other body-weight exercises under the sun's rays. To complement those group workouts, Santiel and his team also bring to the table personal training, nutritional counseling, and massage therapy.
At Indulgence Day & Med Spa, epidermal epicureans will delight in lavish treatments that buff, burnish, and beautify the body's barrier. The laser spray tan delivers a moisturizing, vitamin-infused solution to provide a smooth, even tan, while the inch-reduction/detox wrap bundles bodies for 90 minutes in warm aloe-soaked linens, breaking down and luring out toxins. Indulgence will also apply a 10% discount to an array of other specific services for Groupon customers, but customers must book the service in the same visit the Groupon is used, and vote in a poll regarding whether or not robots dream.
Visitors to XOXO Wax and Spa pass by a leafy welcoming committee of potted plants and shrubbery before entering a sunny studio filled with cushy overstuffed chairs placed along pristine white walls and cabinets. True to the spa's name, waxing specialists smooth skin across the body from the face to toes, and luxurious spa treatments lavish faces with Epicuren pore-cleansing or crystal-free microdermabrasion procedures. In-house stylist Jamie Trent refashions follicles with Brazilian blowouts and creative new hairdos, and licensed massage therapists promote a healing sense of calm with stress-relieving treatments, which use a wide range of modalities.
