Named after the Greek word for me, Emena Spa centers on the individual through a bevy of complimentary amenities, soothing d?cor, and pampering services. The doting staff stays true to the spa's namesake, ushering clients into one of six private treatment rooms for a revitalizing microdermabrasion or detoxifying peel accented by organic products, cutting-edge technology, and aesthetic know-how. Stylists and nail technicians pore over features with attentive services that elicit youthful beauty, and the facility's Power Plate vibrating platform gives clients the opportunity to tone their bodies without long hours at the gym or smudge-prone bicep marker drawings. For full-body enhancement, massage therapists unearth tension through four modalities as licensed physician's assistants target unwanted hair and skin blemishes with GentleMax laser technology.

Situated on tiny Belle Isle in Biscayne Bay, The Standard, Miami is an indoor and outdoor hydrotherapy playground that fosters stress-free socializing in a tropical, contemporary setting. With a minimalist design, the holistic hydrotherapy spa hotel provides a stylish yet intimate ambience.
The team at Sanctuary Salon & Spa, which is nestled within the foliage-lined, crisply black-and-white Sanctuary South Beach boutique hotel, nurtures bodies with organic products and anti-aging facials. Skilled aestheticians pamper visages with Dead Sea minerals and organic exfoliating flaxseeds, and stylists cut and color hair in the natural light that floods through the onsite salon. Clients can elect to receive massages, including hot-bamboo and deep-tissue modalities, in pristine white spa treatment rooms or pick another location in the hotel that they would prefer. Therapists can meet guests in their room or beside the rooftop pool surrounded by white tile steps and a manicured green strewn with lawn chairs and vacationing garden gnomes.
Exhale Spa seeks to transform its clientele inside and out. The founding team of fitness professionals and aestheticians sought to create an environment where they could empower visitors with pampering spa treatments, invigorating fitness classes, and lifestyle education, helping clients attain a sense of control and holistic balance. Now with 19 locations across 11 cities, Exhale Spa and its signature services have earned mentions in numerous national publications, including People magazine, the New York Times, and O, The Oprah Magazine.
Exhale's signature Core Fusion classes incorporate dance-inspired stretches, yoga poses, and Pilates exercises into total-body workouts that build long, lean limbs and sturdy abdominal muscles over time. For an even more varied workout, the instructors introduce boot-camp techniques, cardio exercises, or multiplication tables to select sessions. Yoga classes present a similar amount of breadth and variety, drawing inspiration from a number of introspective and physically oriented styles. To help hasten physical transformations, nutrition and wellness coaches teach attendees about the impacts of diet. These sessions build an awareness of healthy eating habits through custom meal plans and by teaching clients how to identify the edible parts of a fruit basket.
Many of the center's traditional spa services seek to inspire confidence. Facials pamper and refine skin using everything from green tea and fruit extracts to microcurrent technology, and mani-pedis revitalize digits before glazing nails with a vibrant new coat of color. Bodywork treatments look beyond physical relaxation and focus on holistic concerns. Massage therapists can use Eastern or Western modalities to soothe overstressed musculature, and acupuncture treatments and reiki sessions jump-start natural healing processes by encouraging the free flow of inner energies.
