The compassionate dermal caretakers at Trilogy Spa welcome spirit sacks to a spacious, comforting sanctuary, where the body is exposed to a rejuvenating three-part series of the spa’s most celebrated signature treatments. The maile tub soak adds a festive Hawaiian theme to the pamper party, where salts and oils combine to send your skin vessel on a soothing cruise that detoxifies and moisturizes the dermis. The weightless float uses its heated flotation bed manned by a Space Camp counselor to massage and relax the body atop a soothing weightless cradle, and 20 minutes of sleep in the float is equivalent to six hours of sleep. For the finale, choose a restorative 25-minute service from a host of options, including a half massage, quickie facial, awapuhi white ginger body scrub, and lehua honey body scrub. Whichever service you choose, handmade, organic, all-natural beauty potions will be used.
Inside Lisz Dom Salon, stylists trim strands and add striking color to hairdos as clients sip wine and eat hors d'oeuvres while seated in bold purple salon chairs. The multitalented staff also redresses fingertips with manicures, clears up complexions with facials, and bronzes bodies with airbrush tanning, eliminating the hassle of taking a trip to the beach or to the heart of the sun. The trained hands of a massage therapist sweep over stressed bodies during deep-tissue massages or acupressure sessions, lifting tension as they go.
Working mere blocks from the Pacific Ocean, Six Degrees Salon and Spa’s team of stylists distills the sea’s natural beauty and calming influence into beauty treatments under the guidance of co-owners Joel and Frida Silva, authorities in haircare and skincare services, respectively. While stylists trim hair and wax errant fringe in the second floor’s open, hardwood-floored salon upstairs, licensed massage therapists knead out kinks and aestheticians unleash powerful facials and peels on blemishes in the downstairs spa and boutique. Armed with products from top-tier companies such as Obagi and Moroccanoil, the beautifiers render coifs and skin more healthy and radiant than a nutritionist's grocery list left in a running microwave.
Before Hank Greenberg helped other people with massage therapy, he helped his partner, Durek, who suffered from kidney failure for more than a decade until his transplant in 2012. Through this transformative experience, Hank found his calling. Now, Hank performs restorative and preventive massage therapy at his private practice, aptly named Calm Body. His treatments include a variety of modalities, such deep tissue, reflexology, and myofascial release, all of which are bolstered by his time spent studying anatomy and physiology. Through these services he aims to thwart chronic pain and tension and improve the flow of blood and patients' ranges of motion. Hank also makes house calls within South Bay, which helps clients relax at home or while camping on their roof.
Despite its name, Illusions of Beauty’s services deliver lasting results. From haircuts, weaves, and coloring services to nailcare, waxing, and cosmetics, the staff at Illusions of Beauty is equipped to help clients to enhance their natural beauty and boost confidence. Aestheticians use Dermalogica skincare products to cleanse and exfoliate faces in private rooms made deeply relaxing by the deafening sounds of quiet.
In his early days as a massage therapist, Sean Struxness was struck by the stark contrasts in quality between high-end and low-end spas, noticing a large gap between the two. He founded The Massage Spot to fill that gap, partly because he no longer wanted to mow the gap's out-of-control grass. Though it forgoes the locker rooms and showers that full day spas may offer, Struxness's mini day spa doesn't skimp on the tranquil atmosphere, as it features flickering candles, soothing music, and a relaxing zen area. The service menu isn't lacking, either; The Massage Spot's team of professionals performs haircuts and deep conditionings, nine types of facials, spa pedicures with aromatherapy soaks, and Western and Eastern styles of massage therapy.
