After working at other beauty establishments, aesthetician Angelica McCoy wanted to create a space where she could both pamper her guests and pay homage to her Mexican heritage. She has accomplished both of those goals at La Choza Day Spa. As she told KRON 4 in 2009, La Choza—which translates to "the little hut"—is meant to recreate the ambience of a cozy, south-of-the-border village. In the reception area, red Spanish-tile accents and paintings of cacti and beachside scenes promote an atmosphere of rustic tranquility.
Besides offering facials, massages, nail services, and body treatments individually, McCoy and her team bundle them into spa packages; for example, the romance package for two includes spa pedicures and candlelit side-by-side massages on rose-petal-dappled treatment beds. And there are treatments for all ages here—together with her daughter, McCoy designed a menu of teen services specifically designed to combat issues such as stress or acne caused by thinking about algebra too much.
Experts home in on knots with five varieties of massage therapy, as well as acupuncture. During deep-tissue massages, they use a tracing method that stalks pain to its source and triggers relief by pushing into lower-level musculature. Therapists also evict sports- and work-related tension, addressing muscles strains caused by weightlifting, a hard week at the office, or a moderate week at the fireworks factory. Shiatsu and relaxation massages each tackle stress and fatigue with long, soothing strokes, and myofascial therapy and acupressure pinpoint problem areas to realign troublesome tissues and balance energy pathways.
When Dr. Minh Le practiced as a medical doctor, he treated thousands of in-need patients for a mere $25 per visit. Nowadays, his focus has shifted towards cosmetic treatments, but his practice still prioritizes accessibility for all budgets. At Vienna Skin Clinic, he and his team use cost-effective, state-of-the-art treatments to help skin look its best, deploying Elos-powered skin rejuvenation and laser hair removal. Alternatively, visitors can opt for wrinkle-smoothing injectables, such as Botox and Restylane. During their noninvasive treatments, patients can relax by listening to music or gazing out the window at scenic views of Silicon Valley’s laptop gardens.
