The pain sets in quickly––a wrench in the neck, a sore back, knotted shoulders. Or perhaps the tension is the culmination of years spent at a desk or performing one too many giraffe impressions. The best tonic for this kind of pain is often the skill set of a certified massage therapist. Certified Hands Massage Therapy sends soothing ripples through achy musculature with a dynamic array of massage modalities. The licensed massage therapists use light to moderate Swedish strokes, or access lower-layer muscles with the firm pressure of deep-tissue and trigger-point techniques. They can also employ sports massages to improve range of motion in athletes and range of emotion in actors who play them on TV.
Located in Upland, La Bella Day Spa and Salon is a full-service beauty haven, where aestheticians believe that the little extras are what pamper guests the most. Clients at this upscale spa and salon are greeted with refreshments in the soothing lounge, and there's a complimentary shower and infrared spa for guests. At the day spa, a licensed cosmetologist for Liquid Glamour works her magic on fingers and toes, buffing and polishing nails to help complete the luxurious beauty package.
At Vendesi Beauty & Wellness Center, individually tailored facials cater to a wide range of skin concerns, treating faces in need of firming, hydrating, exfoliating, and more.

But this beauty and wellness center offers much more than just skincare: other services include massages, body wraps, and spray tanning, to name a few.
Despite its wide range of therapeutic services, Rapha Physical Therapy maintains a cozy, welcoming atmosphere that won't intimidate the kids it exclusively treats. Physical therapists work on strength and motion, occupational therapists focus on functional motor skills, and speech therapists tend to communication disorders. Other kid-oriented experts give parents a hand by teaching them about their child's diagnosis or helping their young athlete recover after an injury.
Located inside Merle Norman Cosmetic Studio, Alec Ian Day Spa immediately sets clients at ease with plants, curtains, and decorative plates hung on the wall that somehow seem more practical than decorative crock pots. Alec Ian's service menu spans nearly the entire beautification spectrum. From facials to manicures, aestheticians spruce up exteriors in a comfortable spa setting. Inside a private massage room, therapists treat clients to one of seven different types of massage as a way to relax after a long day. Additionally, Alec Ian offers up med-spa services such as Botox, Dysport, and Restylane fillers.
The medical team at Yepez & Contreras Life Fitness Chiropractic and Acupuncture believe the best doctor is the body itself. Relying solely on drug-free and noninvasive techniques, they tap into the body's ability to recover from common aches and chronic ailments.
