The face-saving staff at Roni's Hair Forum warmly welcomes visages with a skin assessment, customizing each session by epidermal type and age. Aestheticians begin 60-minute deep-cleaning facials with an examination and deep cleansing, scrubbing cheeks and dusting off noses. If needed, an extraction clears clogged pores before a massage's soothing motions relax cheeks stressed by lengthy free-form jazz whistle solos. A treatment mask blankets skin in a formula designed to pamper each face's specific skin type. Ninety-minute treatment facials also begin with a deep cleansing and extraction, followed by a more in-depth massage. Finally, technicians infuse a special treatment serum into the skin through an electric current, which brightens complexions by sending self-affirming maxims to skin cells via Morse code. Once thoroughly refreshed, guests parade rejuvenated faces through Roni's Hair Forum's classically inspired interior, dignified with scalloped columns and elegant vases verdant with greenery.

There’s nothing common about the massage sessions at North Canton Aqua Massage, except for their relaxing effects. Unlike at most spas, clients remain fully clothed during their appointments at North Canton, and they don’t need to worry about leaving coated with oil. Aqua-massage sessions take only 20 minutes and keep clients completely clean and dry, and, perhaps most shockingly, there are no therapists in sight. High-tech beds take care of all the kneading, gently manipulating achey muscles with pulses of heated water.
Though Miami Massage & Beauty Dayspa isn’t located anywhere near South Beach, the decor—sandy walls, bead boarding, model ships, and paintings of the ocean—finds inspiration from the Florida coast. Just as relaxing as the tropics are the massage services in which the staff members specialize. Beyond standard deep-tissue, prenatal, aromatherapy and hot-stone massages, they practice reiki, a Japanese technique said to boost the body’s positive energies and promote healing, and reflexology, a style of massage that relieves pain throughout the body by focusing on pressure points found in feet, hands, and heated debates. They also provide eyelash extensions, ear piercings, makeup applications, salt and sugar scrubs, and body wraps.
The aesthetician at Bright Organic Spa rejuvenates visages and physiques with myriad beautifying services that employ the restorative powers of organic ingredients, some sourced from some of the world's most exotic destinations. Polynesian and South Pacific ingredients, such as Tahitian vanilla and coconut milk, immerse the senses in intoxicating aromas during the Polynesian facial, while tropical fruit enzymes and essential oils work to clear and moisturize skin. Body treatments also make use of organic ingredients such as Himalayan salt crystals and propolis, a healing agent made by honeybees.
Christina Freeman and her resident aesthetician have more than 30 years of collective experience in the art of making skin glow. In their pursuit of youthful radiance, the skin specialists tailor spa treatments to each client’s skin type. The organic passionfruit peel offers a lighter rejuvenation, and chemical peels and Dermaglow microdermabrasion treatments delve deeper to combat blemishes and signs of aging such as wrinkles or comb-over noses.
Spa-goers can relax during full-body massages and enjoy the aromatherapy of nine essential oils during raindrop-therapy sessions designed to boost immune systems and soothe stress. Rounding out their services, Christina and her team can enhance features with Jane Iredale mineral makeup and wax away mustaches or eyebrows that need braiding each morning.
