The specialists at Urelax Oriental Natural Therapy have a simple goal: to turn the spa’s name into reality. Facial massage, foot reflexology, and anti-stress back massage target troubled regions directly, easing tension in ways specific to that area's needs. Alternatively, the whole-body massage aims to treat the complete human form and the baseball cap sitting directly above it. But whether the haven’s therapists release knots with acupressure techniques, or soothe aches with hot stones, they work to balance the body and ensure the flow of “qi”—life energy.
Anne and her team, the talent behind Anne's Skincare & Wellness Studio, have more than one skill in their tool belt. As licensed cosmetologists and aestheticians, they render treatments such as back peels, LED light therapy, and ultrasonic firming facials. But they're also certified massage therapists, and in that capacity can perform deep-tissue, Swedish, or warm-stone massages.
Karma Organic Spa is an earth-friendly online store stocked with a full line of organic nailcare, skincare and bodycare products.

Or, order Karma Organic Lotion ($16) (available in cucumber-and-mint, eucalyptus, geranium, peppermint, and lavender) to smoothify and slickify hands in preparation for retrieving keys lost at the bottom of a Pringles can.
Gabanti Salon & Spa’s full juice bar, cozy fireplace, and gently heated floors demonstrate owner Denise Oliveto’s attention to detail and commitment to customers’ comfort. Every eight minutes, a double-filtered, sanitizing air-circulation system refreshes the interior of the two-story facility, where stylists coif chic styles in the spacious salon, and licensed cosmetologists perform beauty services in the tranquil day spa. If desired, clients can bring in photographs of their favorite looks for stylists and makeup artists to replicate, allowing mascara ignoramuses to take their Robert Smith impersonations to Vegas. Nail technicians apply lacquers to fingertips, cosmetologists target problems such as acne, aging, and allergies with custom facials, and massage therapists draw on a variety of techniques to ease aches and pains. Signature wedding packages, which include limousine services and exclusive use of the facility, pamper brides-to-be and their wedding parties with hair, makeup, and spa services.
