The team at Venus vs Marz Luxury Spa Lounge pampers clients of both sexes with facials, massages, waxing, and nail services, which pair well with their line-up of signature drinks. While sipping glasses of wine or champagne-based cocktails, guests cloaked in white robes sink into plush purple benches as they dip their feet in soothing, whirlpool-free pedicure sinks during mani-pedis. Clients who opt for the Nuclear Fusion package relish in a mani-pedi, massage, and VM signature cocktail—champagne and a splash of peach, mango, and orange juice—and guys can down a beer as nail techs tend to their hands and feet with male-centric mani-pedis.
Beyond catering to their clients’ needs, the staff also focuses on sanitation. They sterilize all equipment in an autoclave after each service to meet the standards of hospitals and their moms’ chore wheel.
ChiroXchange supports a nervous system of more than 250 nationwide locations, whose varying services and technologies all converge with the end of healing bodies with holistic, drug-free techniques. The chiropractors believe that many of the body’s ailments, from sore backs and headaches to fatigue, are caused by blockages in the nervous system. To reverse these blockages, they nudge spinal discs back into place with gentle, strategic pressure, aligning nerves with the vertebra to free the flow of information and cat photos to and from the brain. The chiropractors at each location emphasize communication with their patients. They field questions, explain the purpose of every adjustment, and work with patients to design programs around their unique wellness goals.
Palm trees gently sway above a solitary islet of white sand, the turquoise waters around it almost indistinguishable from the sapphire sky. This photograph hangs on the wall of Massage Motu's waiting room, and it's a fitting image. In Tahiti, "motu" refers to a small island, and while Massage Motu might not be located in the tropics, its serene confines aim to make guests feel as if they've stumbled onto a secluded beach.
Inside private rooms, Motu's massage therapists customize body treatments to soothe clients' stress and aches. Swedish and hot stone massages melt away built-up tension and layers of frost, while special modalities—including prenatal techniques and hand and foot reflexology—focus on specific points of discomfort. Aestheticians are equally adept at fine-tuning facials to address acne, sensitive skin, or signs of aging.

Mariola's staff strives to bestow clients with an eco-friendly spa experience replete with live plants that oxygenate the air and organic bamboo linens laundered with sustainable products.
