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.

Energy healers and spiritual seekers converge at Liberate Emporium, a Los Feliz healing center with a Zen-like, meditative vibe. Specializing in energy cleansing and spiritual development, Liberate is a one-stop-shop on the road to enlightenment for locals and the greater L.A. holistic set, who head to the shiny Hillhurst Avenue location. The burnt orange storefront sells a dizzying array of new-aged wares, including dried sage, incense, assorted oils and a number of precious crystals – ironing out funky energy is Liberate’s specialty, after all. In addition to services like hypnotherapy, psychic readings and astrology charting, the shop also offers classes in spiritual development, Reiki, tarot reading and more.
Licensed acupuncturists, a chiropractor, an energy and nutrition specialist, and a cosmetologist make up the team at Origin Natural Care. Together, this holistic crew helps patients find relief from acute and chronic ailments with therapies that restore balance to the body and drive away toxins.

Faccia Bella Beauty Studio’s staff primps clients with a diverse selection of aesthetic services—they can render anything from a simple brow wax to body-slimming therapy. Aestheticians can whisk guests past the wood cabinetry-outfitted styling area to the skin treatment area for microdermabrasions and enzyme peels that mitigate visible signs of aging, and their permanent makeup applications can fill in brows, darken eyelines, and add color to lips. With Aveda products, hairstylists render exquisite styles, or they can manipulate texture with perms or Japanese straightening treatments. Alternatively, nail technicians adorn digits with crackle and long-lasting gel polish—they can even do a Chuck Taylor sneaker design that looks uncannily real. The staff even goes beyond aesthetics, offering personalized massages that address any problem areas, such as an attic that has so many cobwebs you have to contort your way through it and hurt your back.
