At Miraculous Massage, a list of massage techniques—from Swedish and therapeutic to reflexology—untie knotted muscles and diminish areas of pain. Refreshed bodies can get faces to match with microdermabrasion treatments and express facials.
Hibiscus Day Spa?s body-treatment menu looks good enough to eat: the pumpkin body souffl? softens skin with enzymes, and the Ultimate Chocolate Indulgence tantalizes the senses with a cocoa scrub and chocolate-butter massage. Though not as epicurean, Hibiscus?s other spa treatments are similarly luxuriant. The dual massage recruits two therapists to work on a client?s muscular tension, and a Caribbean Queen facial slathers skin with an aromatic blend of peptides and hydrators. Specialty treatments for expectant mothers and brides-to-be fill out the selection, as well as teen services; mini facials help instill healthy skincare habits and massages tackle high-school sports injuries and tension from hanging on a flagpole by your underwear.
For maintenance less aesthetic and more energetic, Hibiscus also boasts an onsite health and wellness center. Here, clients can look to traditional Chinese healing therapies such as sliding-scale acupuncture and reiki energy balancing. Custom nutritional counseling helps participants embrace long-term healthful eating habits.
To avoid the irritation and fleeting results common among standard skincare services, Aminahs Organic Skin Spa goes back to basics—organic fruits, vegetables, seeds, and herbs provide the basis for every treatment the aestheticians perform. Calling on certifications from Éminence Organic Skincare—a Hungarian line that shuns harsh chemicals and additives—the skin experts customize each facial to suit the client's skin type and target nagging issues such as acne blemishes or signs of aging. They keep tabs on their treatments' effectiveness with before-and-after photos and send clients home with an individualized skincare regimen to follow, ensuring that they'll keep the radiant results for as long as possible. Meanwhile, a host of other services take a gentler approach to beautification: organic microdermabrasion treatments eschew the use of machines, organic peels incorporate no chemicals, and waxing treatments use wholesome, natural waxes to leave skin smooth. Beyond the spa's dedication to saving skin by using formulas free of parabens, pesticides, sodium lauryl sulfate, they also strive to save the planet—all skincare products are created using wind and solar power and packaged in recycled containers.
What started as a five-chair salon in 1993 has become an award-winning business with 20 styling stations, and eight color stations. Helmed by owners Lisa Shriver-Brooks and Steven Brooks, Diva Studio’s stylists have developed a reputation for outstanding hair services, which has earned them the honor of styling strands for major events such as the 2005 Billboard Music Awards and VH1’s Divas 2004. High ceilings and an open floor plan characterize the industrial-chic space, which is illuminated by hanging studio lighting and decorated with stainless-steel fixtures made from former Brave Little Toasters. While standing on the polished cement floors, stylists wash clients’ hair before transforming their look with high-end products and services from blowouts to updos.
While some people believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, others believe it resides somewhere closer to the edge. Both groups would feel right at home at The Eyelash Connection, where licensed aestheticians divide their time between helping clients enhance their outward appearances and curating a calm, stress-free environment designed to promote wellness from within. Their signature eyelash extensions help trim minutes off of home makeup routines with waterproof strands that are affixed one by one instead of in false-looking strips. Annual continuing-education courses also help the staffers resharpen skills, which they channel into full-body waxing services and personalized skincare facials designed to treat everything from acne-prone complexions to backs covered in scratch 'n' sniff stickers.
With Posaré Salon built upon three essential r’s of salon and spa service—relax, revive, and replenish—experienced staffers wield a bounty of professional products as they seek to treat clientele like royalty.

Throughout the rest of the salon, stylists and aestheticians perform an abundance of pampering treatments from spa pedicures to permanent eyelash extensions. The med-spa branch additionally clears epidermises of acne and wrinkles, dispenses flu shots to shield patients from severe sniffles, and supplies melancholic music suggestions for visitors with crippling disco fever.
