Therapists at Forest Hills Spa don't limit themselves to traditional Western spa techniques to help clients heal from daily stress and tension. Instead, the staff draws from traditional Russian therapies that include exfoliating oak-leaf treatments and a circulation-reviving salt scrub. These services together with Western-style massage are performed in private treatment rooms separate from the main spa. In public areas, clients can jump into a cold plunge, a comfortable pool, or a 12-person Jacuzzi ringed by walls of marble mosaics. The mosaics give way to aromatic cedar in one of the three saunas, where clients can loosen their muscles or interrogate snowmen. Apart from spa services, Forest Hills includes a food center that plates traditional Russian entrees, snacks, and beer alongside a squeeze-your-own-juice bar.

At Evergreen Beauty Salon, aestheticians eschew invasive treatments for soothing, nutrient-rich facials that even skin tone, diminish blemishes, and slough away dull skin cells to reveal new layers in Technicolor. Besides facials, the staff also performs slimming body wraps, mani-pedis, and waxing services. These treatments take place in a calming space, whose private treatment rooms are marked by pastel-green walls and whose reception area is brightened by shelves full of nourishing products for sale.

Apart from their signature massage services, the versatile staff also indulges guests with haircuts, facials, and sauna sessions.
