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.

The Establishment Salon is an Aveda concept salon in Silver Lake, one of Los Angeles’ hippest and most youthful neighborhoods. Treatments include haircuts, coloring, waxing, makeup, eyelash tinting and assorted skin services; only Aveda products are used, of course. The glass front lets in a lot of light, hitting warm wooden accents throughout, and the front of their store stocks a wide variety of those same in-use products, which can be purchased on site for those interested in perfecting their look at home. The Establishment also offers a full service French press coffee and tea to all of their clients inside the smallish space, where only six salon stations and one spa treatment room exist.
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.
