Fresh herbal tea and an aromatherapy neck-and-shoulder pack accompany the myriad salon-and-spa services, including haircuts, waxing, and facials.

Active Health's skilled massage therapists practice a myriad of massage styles, from deep tissue to Swedish to shiatsu.

During a Shiatsu session, the therapist will focus on improving the body's energy flow, creating pressure with thumbs, fists, elbows, and tough-guy squints. Thai and pre-performance sports massages are also available, soothing your sore body until all the stress has evaporated and floated up to fill holes in the ozone layer.
The Scotts Valley outpost of Faust Salon salves skin with nourishing plant-based products.

Depending on which Aveda products match your needs, facials may include exfoliants, balancing infusions, or hydrating masks to slough off signs of stress. With walls of rough-hewn stone designed for maximum contrast with newly smoothed skin, Faust Salon strives to place customers in a chic and easygoing environment.
