Seasoned sinew kneader Shelly Connors of Sweet Serenity Massage deploys an arsenal of Swedish massage techniques, tailoring treatment to meet the specific needs of her clients. A thorough, stress-melting manipulation of the corpus commences in 60- or 90-minute Swedish massages, during which Connors uses Scandinavian methods—such as long, fluid strokes and a heavy reliance on umlauts—to relieve aches and induce relaxation. Aromatic oils curtail friction while hydrating the skin and further soothing the senses with their calming scents. Bodies receive these attentions in a tranquil space accented by diaphanous curtains, Ionic columns, and a soothing soundtrack of klezmer punk hits.

Determined to give working people a place to relax and be pampered, the working mother of two behind Tigli Skin Spa enlisted her husband and friends to help her create an intimate spa, tanning salon, and boutique.

A luxurious experience is ensured with the use of celebrity-favorite Éminence Organics skincare products, which nourish the skin, engage the senses, and broker sophisticated peace deals between the earth and the salon industry.

Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. A week of VIP UV therapy begins with a skin analysis before exposing clients to UV light, shown to benefit both the body and mind while imparting bodies with sun-kissed glows. A round of UV-free Mystic spray tanning adheres to the skin suit evenly and streaklessly using the body's natural magnetic properties and innate force fields, for a bronze that lasts five–seven days. Wielding infrared heat and a nutrient-shrouding steam, the 20-minute moisturizing Hydro-Derma Fusion machine can help increase collagen production, extend UV- and UV-free-tanning results, and replenish water reserves stored in vestigial dromedary humps.
