Malaya Skin Studio encapsulates the serenity of ocean swells in skincare, waxing, and eyelash services performed amid pacific-blue and gray hues. Free skin analyses bring epidermal concerns to light before custom facials or more intense microcurrent treatments vanquish them like a superhero with the strength of 10 aestheticians. Meanwhile, alternating attacks with Berins hard wax—which clings only to hair—and rose-cream strip wax uproot unwanted fuzz while topical numbing cream or complimentary glasses of wine ease the sting. Lashes stays firmly attached but flaunt boosted volume thanks to extensions, increased definition with tinting, or added curl with perms.
Pacifica Health Fusion doubles as a massage-therapy studio and a first-aid training center. Two licensed massage therapists—a mother and daughter—oversee the business and serve as its primary practitioners. They knead muscles with a choice of nine massage modalities and lead safety and first-aid trainings that adhere to American Heart Association and American Red Cross standards. During basic life support (BLS) and CPR seminars, the duo explains how to recognize medical emergencies or properly resuscitate unresponsive Cabbage Patch dolls.
Kiddie Mia's Family Fun Center entertains children of all ages in two joy-filled facilities. High ceilings loom jealously above the bright blue floors where games twinkle happily. One building houses the center's coin-operated arcade, which rewards youngsters with tickets that, unlike an armored piñata, actually yield prizes. Alongside the redemption games, families can quell appetites with pizzas, burgers, and a spaghetti buffet, all awaiting charged up maws at the onsite snack bar. In the adjacent all-you-can-play game room, dozens of kiddie rides occupy young children, who can scamper between Disney-themed attractions such as Mickey's truck and Barney's tractor as parents shout parallel-parking instructions from nearby red and blue picnic tables. Older kids can blast computerized foes on a number of arcade games or coordinate hands and eyes with turns at basketball hoops or air-hockey tables.
An inviting, Tuscan-themed relaxery, BellaNirvana freshens clients with a wide variety of health and beauty services. The BellaNirvana Special package grants guests one hour's worth of its Signature Facial and hand treatment plus an additional hour of rejuvenating, body-softening massage. During the signature facial, visitors first undergo skin analysis to ensure optimal treatment customization before receiving a two-step cleanse with hydrophilic oils and herb juice, an enzymatic exfoliation, extractions, a mask, and hydrating serums. The hour-long massage applies Swedish and deep-tissue kneading techniques until soreness, tension, and pain have left the body like an honorably discharged poltergeist.
Bellezza Day Spa's specialists evict freeloading tension and impurities with signature spa treatments including facials, waxing, massages, and manicures. Knowledgeable hands slow dance across weary backs during muscle-kneading massage sessions to improve circulation and invoke relaxation. Specialized facials infuse natural facemasks with a variety of cleansing and nourishing treatments including steam extractions and organic, paraben-free products. Nail treatments enhance the health and appearance of back scratchers and often conclude with hot-lavender-oil massages. Diligent depilators uproot unwanted skin sprouts with hard and soft waxes, which make it easy to shape forehead-dwelling caterpillars into beautiful arches.
