The Art of You Holistic Center heals bodies with relaxing treatments performed both indoors and out. Classic facials and back treatments evict dirt from the skin, and massages?which range from deep tissue to Swedish?turn tense muscles into butter. The center also offers acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine and only uses natural products that are free of parabens, sulfates, and poltergeists.
Tao of Venus Wellness Center owner Beth Meneley draws on her master's degree in oriental medicine and a passion for healing to protect and mend patients' physiques through a diverse range of holistic therapies. Trained acupuncturists and chiropractors work to realign the body through time-honored methods, and seasoned massage therapists ease pain with a tailored blend of six tension-melting modalities. Thermography specialists boast the ability to detect cancer without the use of radiation through thermal imaging, which aims to find harmful cells through the naturally occurring heat of their weekly bake-offs. Before and after appointments, patients sip steaming cups of tea in an intimate relaxation room dotted with leafy plants, Eastern totems, and modern furnishings.
The all-natural chocolate and honey facial is one of Body Bar's signature skin treatments. Although the temptation to lick your own face may be palpable, the physical difficulty of the act, combined with the benefits of the effectively sweet concoctions, should keep the procedure running smoothly. Lie back and enjoy the soothing sensation of two separate treatment masks: an organic cocoa powder mask that stimulates circulation, exfoliates outer layers of snake skin, and moisturizes the newly excavated baby skin camped out below, followed by a honey mask that naturally fights bacteria buildup, hydrates hopeful pores, and stimulates collagen for noticeably firmer skin that appears as youthful as a baby bee discovering itself on a European road trip. Body Bar employs the skilled hands of certified aestheticians for a reliably enjoyable experience and positively beautiful results.

Hidden on a side street in Atwater Village, this one room spa is a clean and relaxing oasis for those who want a little pampering. Owner Leanne Lurie uses chemical-free products only at Lula Holistic Mini Spa, relying heavily on lines like Dr. Saulius Alkaitis and Epicurean Discovery. The custom Lula’s facial found inside this summery spa is a full 75 minutes of relaxing bliss, using quality techniques and plenty of high-end tricks to rejuvenate skin and leave customers smiling. Lula Holistic is an expert space for skin care solutions and microdermabrasion work, hot enzyme peels or glycolic peels that work to repair sun-damaged skin; each can be added to the facial for an additional fee.
Nestled inside the Bonaventure Hotel, experienced masseuses maintain 10,000 square feet of pure serenity spread across 11 treatment rooms. Cordoned off into sections for men and women, the facility flaunts amenities such as hydro-jet showers with seven pulsing showerheads and saunas fogged with soothing vapor instead of fog machines stolen from middle-school dances. Bonaventure Club plucks massage techniques from all over the globe, including Thailand where therapists stretch frames with their hands, knees, and feet to amplify the client's flexibility and energy. Pre- or post-treament, clients can unwind in a relaxation lounge stocked with Perrier water, jasmine-rose tea, and snacks, while flipping through magazines or watching a big-screen TV.
