Jade Day Spa's array of relaxing services blends the best of Western science with the balancing benefits of Eastern medicine, like a particle accelerator built according to feng shui. Licensed massage therapists trained with specialists in China to master intensive modalities that were conceived centuries ago by Asian practitioners. Acupuncture experts treat chronic pain or unhealthy habits by manipulating pressure points to improve the flow of energy through the body. Guests admire the spa's deep-red walls and Asian-themed artwork as they recline for 1 of 14 types of facials that combat aging better than wearing a watch backwards. A spacious signature treatment room contains a wooden tub for soothing foot soaks dappled with rose petals and a pair of beds for romantic couples massages.

Though the staff of Lana’s Place is adept at everything from tinting and cutting hair to grooming and polishing nails to administering effective body-slimming treatments, one look at the menu of services makes it clear that the eclectic salon’s main focus is skin. The team of skilled aestheticians uses a range of tools and ingredients to lend potency to its skincare services, including 24-karat gold that refines skin and microneedles that smooth wrinkles by spurring the body’s natural collagen production. The menu of services includes a mix of relaxing and problem-targeting treatments to help clients keep their minds clear and their skin glowing, much like meditating with a squirm of glow worms. This skin-pampering focus even extends to other salon treatments, where aestheticians might incorporate skin-smoothing products into pedicures, massages, and waxing treatments.
