With programs for children and adults of all ages, Aqua Bella Fitness acts as both a playground and a training center. Its heated indoor pool embodies this versatility by hosting Summer Splash Camp sessions, Red Cross–certified lessons, and water-aerobics classes, which increase resistance on muscles more safely than working out in a quicksand pit. Exercise equipment abounds on the workout floor, where guests can tackle a 30-second circuit or dangle from TRX suspension systems. Though its focus is on promoting healthy lifestyles, the gym also endorses relaxation with day-spa services such as tanning and massage.

Cosmetic injections and facial fillers pair with traditional aroma-infused spa soaks, facials, and massages. Every spa service includes a plush robe and slippers and begins with a warm footbath infused with fragrant herbs, essential oils, and car air fresheners.
At Ma’ Therapy Massage Spa Clinic, licensed massage therapist Tamala Allen and three other massage therapists unleash their arsenal of massage modalities on tense necks and sore backs. During Hawaiian-style lomi lomi massages, Tamala uses intuition and Sherlock Holmes' magnifiying glass to detect clients' individual stress points, and then customizes her strokes to address those issues. Swedish massages lull muscles into relaxation with gliding strokes and percussive movements, and therapeutic massages target chronic injuries or recurring aches.
No two massage sessions are quite the same at Allegria Wellness Center. Owner Shawna Guheen customizes each treatment for her client's goals, whether its pain relief or relaxation. She employs a personalized blend of techniques including neuromuscular therapy and holistic bodywork, such as Thai yoga. During these sessions, Ms. Guheen draws on a background that includes time at Florida’s Therapeutic Massage School and more than 200 hours of continuing education, or the length of one episode of Masterpiece Theatre.
