From individual eyelashes to whole muscle groups, every part of the body gets pampered at Self Indulgence Spa. Earth tones and whimsical but staid floral designs lend the space a tranquil atmosphere that extends into the private treatment rooms. Facials, waxing treatments, and a variety of massage modalities comprise much of the service menu, and staff tailors each of the treatments to individual clients. Indulgence even offers a mobile spa service, with aestheticians and therapists visiting clients' homes.
When Edan Ezer was a boy growing up in Israel, he was so committed to becoming a barber that he left school at 16 to train at a local salon. When he was 18, he joined the Israeli Army and became popular for cutting hair at the army base and styling it with the downdraft of a helicopter. He eventually moved to Los Angeles to work alongside some of the best stylists in the world at high-end salons across Beverly Hills.
Since 2006 Edan has operated his own high-end salon, where he and his team work to pamper, relax, and rejuvenate clients. Stylists massage scalps and snip split ends before creating a sleek blowout that can last for days. For longer-lasting results, they straighten hair with Brazilian keratin treatments, which reduce frizz for months. Another popular Brazilian at the salon is its aesthetician, who removes hair with 100% pure honey and who brightens complexions with facials using natural skincare products.
Westwood Clinic's founder, Dr. Bahri, opened his community clinic after touring with the national soccer team as its official chiropractor. During the past 12 years, Dr. Bahri has treated the ailments of local residents, fellow competitive soccer players, and overworked under-the-bed monsters using advanced equipment and techniques. In addition to providing chiropractic services and physiotherapy, the staff of Westwood Clinic helps clients to relax and look their best with massage and skin-rejuvenation treatments.
At Spa at InterContinental LA, clients' relaxation begins before their treatments and continues long after they have finished. The spa invites them to arrive early for appointments to take advantage of the sumptuous facilities.
Specialists float about the softly lit rooms, performing replenishing facials, relaxing massages, and luxurious manicures and pedicures. The spa technicians specialize in body rituals, comprehensive treatments that combine Oriental, Arabian, and Moroccan techniques to foster relaxation and awaken the body's restorative powers. They begin each ritual with a cleansing, exfoliation, and massage, and then follow with services such as smoothing coconut scrubs or Japanese body cleanses.
Skeletons never get a day off. As the framework of the body, they're responsible for keeping us upright and mobile. Sometimes, that responsibility comes at a cost.

Using their extensive knowledge of the skeletal system and the nuanced adjustments required to keep it up and running, they help clients manage everything from chronic pain and mobility problems to sleep problems and migraines.
Founded by Scott J. Fox, DC, and Brian Weiss, PhD, Rest and Relax Bodyworks and Century West Medi-Spa integrate Western medical science and traditional Eastern medicine. As relaxing music plays, they help bodies regain energy and proper posture through chiropractic alignment and acupuncture, and let go of tension during seven varieties of massage. They also address skin issues with facials, peels, and waxing treatments. Their waiting room abounds with potted plants, dark wood accents, and South East Asian-inspired artwork prints, as well as ornate oriental rugs that catch dropped cell phones without a word of reproach. A hallway leads to treatment rooms aglow with soft light from wall sconces, as a Buddha statue looks on serenely.
