Drawing from a line of organic products, Beach Massage and Day Spa's fleet of attentive stress-soothers mollifies muscles with indulgent spa treatments and pampering massages infused with aromatherapy. During the 55-minute session, a licensed massage therapist employs Swedish effleurage to trigger circulation, soothe tense sinews, and rub off dry-erase math problems. Clients can breathe in holistic relaxation during the massage with their choice of aromatherapeutic essential oils such as lavender or ylang ylang. The hot stones invigorate epidermises with strategically placed basalt stones that are warmer than a freshly hugged pet rock.
Escape Day Spa's therapists extend their helping hands to the tense and weary citizens of Los Angeles. They work out of studios at multiple locations, where they practice seven different styles of massage. They help bodies limber up with the assisted stretches of Thai massage, for example, and break up knots deep tissue massage. They even help expectant mothers deal with muscle pain and joint stiffness through pregnancy massage and provide sports massage to help athletes recover from injuries sustained on the field or during a too-enthusiastic victory dance.

Brazil native Erika is a licensed massage therapist and aesthetician, but she focuses all of her skill on a single service: honey waxing. At Brazilian Studio, she extols the boons of using pure honey to remove unwanted hair instead of synthetic waxes. For one thing, honey wax doesn't stick to the skin as much as hot waxes, even though it grips the hair shaft just has snugly. Furthermore, honey wax is devoid of all the harsh chemical ingredients that can irritate the skin.
From the organic teas and fresh fruit that await clients when they walk through the front door to the soothing services performed inside treatment rooms, Cetina European Skin Spa creates a peaceful respite where clients can let go of their stresses. Operated by a mother-daughter team of aestheticians—Maria and Suzanne Cetina—the spa draws on both cutting-edge techniques and products in its indulgent therapies. The Cetinas emphasize the importance of natural skincare methods by stocking their shelves with Shir-Organic products made from whole fruits and rejuvenating herbs.
These organic products drive to the soothing effects of the spa's various facial treatments and body therapies, such as shea butter hand treatments that nourish skin or mineral-rich sea-mud wraps that provide marshland camouflage. For a more mechanical approach, the staff uses crystal and diamond microdermabrasion equipment to restore cheekbones' natural radiance while minimizing the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, and other blemishes. The massage therapists help complete spa escapes by soothing muscles with relaxing and therapeutic modalities.
A Fresh Face Skin Care Clinic's aestheticians aim to eradicate stress with a lengthy, comprehensive slate of holistic-minded spa services amplified by sensory experiences. To kick off each soothing therapy, including massages, scrubs, facials, and hair-removal treatments, clients answer the Aveda Elemental Nature questionnaire, which is designed to help staff members customize treatments based on the five ayurvedic elements found in nature: infinity, air, water, fire, and earth. Like a cradle made from billowing cloud fragments, Aveda tea and a relaxing foot massage bolster each spa session.
