Each LaVida Massage location is a comfortable place that invites people of all ages, genders, and shoe sizes to unwind and improve their emotional, physical, and immiscible well-beings. During a 60-minute deep tissue massage session, one of LaVida’s skilled deck hands will untangle back knots by applying firm pressure to the deepest layers of soft tissue. Targeting specific muscle groups causes concentrated pain and soreness relief. If your face rather than your muscles are on your mind, opt for the LaVida facial. This therapeutic treatment reduces fine lines and wrinkles and gives dermises a deep cleaning.
All too often, a massage facility can feel like a revolving-door operation, where clients feel rushed in and out. Not at Affordable Massage. The studio's licensed massage therapists believe in comfort and communication so that massage techniques can be tailored the individual's needs. Clients may solicit a muscle mender to perform light to medium strokes for relaxation or to access lower-layer aches with therapeutic deep-tissue pressure.
Behind Alandre Salon & Day Spa's curved, marbled reception desk, internationally trained beauticians lavish guests with cosmetic, med-spa, and salon treatments.

Having been the ambassador and educator for L'Oreal Paris and Shwartscoff Germany for over a decade, and the owner of a prestigious Middle East salon, he performs artistry of formal styling, precision cutting, coloring and more. Haddad specializes in updos and makeup, especially for bridal arrangements.
Seasoned aestheticians, makeup technicians, and licensed massage therapists can be found throughout the tranquil halls of L'Aryola Salon and European Spa. The building's simple earth tones and abstract artwork melt into the background as clients slip into a state of calm brought on by customized facials, some including serums with natural vitamins and plants. Massages and body wraps soothe exteriors in rooms that are illuminated by candlelight and full of intriguing aromas, much like an apothecary who has been set on fire. Permanent-makeup sessions add pigments that can augment natural features for years to come.
The massage therapists at Nature Cure Ayurvedic Spa have just one problem with western massage techniques: they're all the same. Focused on treating the mind, body, and soul, they understand that clients come in a range of shapes and sizes, bustling with varying energies and ailments. During each ayurvedic massage, the team takes care to listen to each individual's “prakriti,” or body condition, before applying warm oils in proportion to the body's needs that lubricate strokes designed to relax the body, boost metabolism, and improve the complexion of the skin. In addition to relaxing muscles, the spa also beautifies visages with ayurveda facials that are customized to the client's own skin type and use natural and organic products to cleanse and moisturize the skin.
The Maori word “koru” refers to a newborn, unfurling fern—a symbol of the constantly renewing bond between different people.
