Mermaids are known for their flawless beauty, which, if they were real, would most likely be the result of spending all day soaking in an ocean full of seaweed. At Seaweed Sok, clients can take a beauty tip from these captivating beauties by soaking in elegant, claw-footed tubs filled with water and undulating sheets of translucent, green seaweed from the west of Ireland. For further proof of the botanical baths’ efficacy, a chalkboard sign lists the touted benefits, including detoxification, relaxation, and softer skin for those with eczema or psoriasis. Seaweed soaks are the spa's specialty, but an infrared sauna continues the detoxification and relaxation long after patrons towel off.

The staff at Trim Spa works to shave inches off of waistlines with a trio of non-invasive services. During the yolo curve treatment, laser paddles heat fat cells inside the abdomen, causing them to release their contents so they can be flushed from the body. Then, clients stand atop a yolo vibe platform that sends ripples of vibration through the body, causing thousands of calorie-burning muscle contractions per session. Treatments finish in a far-infrared sauna whose warming rays help boost the heart rate and metabolism.
Under the guidance of Dr. Monica Bonakdar, M.D., clinical aesthetician Liz Brodersen renews vitality to faces and bodies through a slew of non-invasive laser treatments and cosmetic dermatology.

Skin as tough as a superhero’s nails after a mega-manicure mellows into baby softness as the tingling mystique of alpha hydroxy acids heals faces, easing dead skin cells away from cheeks and chins. Post-treatment, new skin layers stay guarded by the lingering flush of glycolic acid and She-Ra’s bejeweled Sword of Protection.
