A peaceful oasis in your busy day, Qitopia offers massages, facials, and reflexology in beautifully appointed private rooms. The trained practitioners at Qitopia?formerly known as New You Massage in Deptford Mall?use the quiet space to soothe faces, backs, and feet with authentic Chinese modalities such as shiatsu and tuina. They free the body's energy, known as qi, from blockages by performing acupressure with hot stones and plugging in any bodily power cords. Tension lifts from clients' statures as the experts gently stretch limbs and release tight joints, using aromatherapy oils and lotions to aid relaxation and detoxification. Chinese massages also unleash a host of benefits from enhanced immunity and energy to reduced hypertension.
As an Aveda concept salon and spa, Belliard's Hair Design Studio and Spa naturally augments its services with the wholesome, herbal products Aveda has become known for. Pairing these with a hodgepodge of techniques, the aestheticians pamper complexions during facials and body treatments, including steam baths fueled by minerals, sea salts, and fuming rubber ducks. Stationed across the spa's hardwood floors, hairstylists shape manes into fashionable 'dos, massage therapists dish out a repertoire of kneads, and nail technicians accent fingertips with OPI Gelcolor. A warm fireplace collaborates with subdued lighting to soothe clients sitting in sleek styling chairs.

Fantagio Spa doesn't feel like a spa as much as it exudes the air of a Middle Eastern palace. Potted palms and other tropical plants gently sway with each robed guest that shuffles by, as sand-colored brick and pyramid-shaped awnings remind them of an Egyptian pharaoh's quarters. In this palatial space, guests bask in soothing facials and mani-pedis, while treating their statures to tranquil massages and body wraps. Chocolate mud treatments awaken the body's senses and uncontrollable urge to nibble on its own arm with antioxidant-packed dark cocoa. Spa packages, meanwhile, combine facials, massages, and mani-pedis for up to four hours of blissful pampering.
Operated by the Gupta Institute for Integrative Medicine, Zenquility Medi-Spa offers both total relaxation and therapeutic pain relief. In a room with heated massage tables, a backlit waterfall, and flameless candles, couples de-stress together as a certified massage therapist loosens muscles and softens skin with a chocolate-peppermint- or rose-scented body butter. To ease chronic discomfort, staffers customize sports and prenatal massages, and they perform a medicated massage with a topical formula created by board-certified pain-management physician Rajan
