At Omni Massage, part of Omni Salon, clients can stride past the green plants that fleck the front door and stretch out on a massage table, ready for soothing strokes from the in-house massage therapist. The therapist's full-body kneads restore peace to anxious minds and muscles, improving circulation in the process. Omni Salon complements bodywork sessions with hair services, nail treatments, and skincare such as facials.
Licensed aesthetician Juana Martinez buffs careworn visages with 60-minute private microdermabrasion treatments at Stewart Medical Group. During each treatment, Martinez gently sands epidermises with a minimally abrasive instrument that removes the thick, uneven layer of outer skin, minimizing light scars and uneven pigment caused by sun damage and semi-permanent clown makeup. The treatment also helps collagen levels to find renewed vigor, leading to smooth, even, and younger-looking complexions. Anesthetic is not used during this noninvasive procedure, as most patients report little discomfort and require no downtime.

Inside Beauty Wink, lash artist Kathie has only one goal: to give her clients long, seamless lashes. To that end, she applies lashes individually, which provides a better fit and a more natural look than strip lashes. Kathie can also refill empty spaces when lashes naturally shed after a few weeks, and remove old extensions when people want to draw attention away from their eyes and onto their new hat.
A meditation room, fresh fruit, and warm teas help clients find peace at Organic Zen Spa while they enjoy therapeutic services from massage therapists and aestheticians.

Using Eminence Organic skincare products, facials incorporate natural ingredients such as yam and pumpkin enzymes to replenish vitamins and essential nutrients. Clients can elongate eyelashes with silk or mink extensions in more than 600 combinations of curl, length, color, and language proficiencies. Waxing and threading services shape and remove body hair.
After treatments, customers can glide to enlightenment in the on-site meditation room, snack on tea and fresh fruit, or peruse luxury skin and body products made for spa-goers intent on smuggling serenity home.
Before Bessy Lim had her first facial, her life was a succession of stressful, 12-hour shifts. Her first spa experience awakened a latent desire: she wanted to help others find the relaxation she had forgone for so long. With that, she left her stressful career, earned a number of spa certifications, traveled abroad to learn the various therapeutic techniques and ways to pronounce "microdermabrasion" of spas overseas, and finally opened Agua De Vida. There, a corps of certified and licensed massage therapists team up with the spa specialist to mend tense muscles with massage, swaddle bodies in wraps, purify pores with facials, and primp hands and feet with nail services.
