Body pampers and tones physiques with spa services and fitness training and tends to wee ones with childcare services and sating hungers at an organic café. Aestheticians buff visages with organic, Ecocert-certified Naturopathica products during custom facials and tighten sagging skin until it's smooth enough to host a microscopic roller derby with microdermabrasion, microcurrents, and derma-rollers. Yoga and dance classes invite limbs to bend and shake, working up an appetite sated by the café’s menu, which pleases raw and vegan palates as well as source-conscious carnivores. After a massage or personal-training session, clients pick up eco-friendly fashions at an on-site boutique, where sustainable, fair-trade garments give patrons something to wear to a dinner party at Mother Nature's house.
As the exclusive team for Santa Fe fashion week, the stylists at Wavelengths Hair & Nail Salon excel at crafting provocative runway looks. Inside the salon, they apply their expertise to a range of hairstyles, from classic and timeless to trendy and modern. “I always change what I do with the season and with a trend update,” George Menzor, Wavelengths’ owner, told Modern Salon magazine. Equally important to Menzor is personalizing his services, which is why Wavelengths’ stylists take time to learn about clients’ desired looks—as well as how much time they are willing to devote to upkeep—before helping them design their style.
In addition to hair services, Wavelengths pampers clients with beauty and spa treatments, including manicures and pedicures, waxing, makeup application, and facials. Hair products from Italian beauty innovator Alfaparf are available for purchase.

Since opening Zen Massage Spa only a few years ago, David Xue has assembled a team of specialists skilled in the soothing arts of reflexology and deep-tissue massage. Aside from these flagship treatments—both of which work to stimulate circulation throughout the body—Xue and his team help their guests relax with unique spa apparatuses such as a floatation tank and a detoxifying infrared sauna. To further promote tranquility, the team supplements all of their treatments with comfortable robes, towels, and self-help books made entirely of terry cloth.
