At Spa Xclusivo, clients become the creators of their customized skin care plans––but not without a little help from the experts. Each visit starts with an analysis from a licensed aesthetician, who can make treatment recommendations and point clients towards ingredients best suited to their particular skin type and troubles. Armed with this knowledge, customers then set to work designing their very own cleansers, moisturizers, toners, and other complexion aids that will be used during one of the spa’s signature facials. From 100% natural extracts to bioengineered products, clients can pick and choose from a huge inventory of cruelty- and fragrance-free active ingredients and bases, all of which are also available for purchase for continued at-home care.
Along with facials, the spa also provides customized massages to help clients relax and waxing services for face and body to help them slide down banisters faster. Custom facials can also be paired with anti-aging treatments such as medical-grade diamond tip microdermabrasion or glycolic acid peels, while eyelash extensions add an extra-touch of glamour to each newly freshened face.
Doctor of Chiropractic Amit Mehta melds his 11 years of chiropractic practice and expertise with the acupunctural arts of Dr. Kathy Long to fashion holistic wellness treatments that address the root causes of bodily discomfort rather than the symptoms. After receiving a degree in biology from the University of Wisconsin and his chiropractic degree from the Southern California University of Health Sciences, Dr. Mehta established his practice to care for the skeletal health of patients of all ages. Licensed massage therapists manipulate noncalcified tissue with a variety of modalities. The targeted strokes enhance healing processes begun by chiropractic work or by apologizing to backs for sleeping on lumpy mattresses. The doctors also help patients continue to better themselves at home with simple corrective exercises and nutritional counseling to find vitamins that best suit their needs.
In Salt Chalet's private treatment rooms, sea salt—known for its ability to balance out the body's positively charged ions—fills the air and coats the walls, floor, and ceiling, glittering under soft, ambient lights. As clients relax in lounge chairs or atop massage tables, briny granules flutter through their lungs and waft across their skin—a holistic process known as halotherapy, which recreates the unique microclimate of the world's salt caves away from their bat-shaped novelty shakers. As the chalet's medical director, Dr. Thom Lobe, proclaims, salt rooms can help alleviate everything from allergies and chronic respiratory illnesses to skin disorders, infections, and difficulties sleeping.
Bangkok Thai Massage is a sanctuary of relaxation. Upon entering, guests walk down the dimly lit hallway to a private treatment room, part the gossamer curtains, and snug into cozy massage beds. In each of the gilded rooms, the therapists set to work, easing tension from muscles with an array of massage modalities. During the signature Thai massage, they call upon their hands, knees, elbows, feet, and telekinetic abilities to deeply relieve pressure and ease limbs into yoga-style stretches. They also soothe aches with the gentle kneads of Swedish massage, and the more intense ministrations of deep-tissue massage.
At The Zone Spa, a staff of massage therapists and aestheticians work in tandem with Dr. Yoav Stein, a chiropractor, to perform a range of holistic services.
