A tablespoon of honey, chopped and pressed vegetables, and a pinch of salt: it’s not the recipe for a summer salad, but for Luna Skin Care and Spa’s customized organic body treatments. Designed to soften and brighten the skin, the treatments mix raw, organic ingredients while the client waits, ensuring maximum freshness and a blend that caters to favorite fragrances and personal skincare needs. The spa’s owner Marianela Arauco, a licensed massage therapist for over 15 years, specializes in a variety of massages, including shiatsu, Japanese acupressure, and reflexology. Her hands sweep over skin, helping to treat issues such as chronic anxiety, muscle tension, or the inability to remove cruel signs taped onto one’s back by guidance counselors.
It's hard to get much more relaxing than a spa set on a picturesque golf resort. For all they have going for them, however, the team at Ousia Day Spa still tries to exceed expectations. Their signature facials soothe and hydrate skin affected by acne and fine lines, while their relaxation and deep-tissue massages alleviate tension in overworked muscles. Impressively, the spa's hair-removal treatments depend on the same hot wax used to groom the golf course's pristine greens.
The formidable skincare boutique at B-True Organics has a lot in common with the produce section of a grocery store. Products are crafted with botanicals such as fennel, grapefruit, and mango?and they're almost pure enough to eat. The pH-balanced shampoos, body lotions, and eye shadows contain no harsh chemicals and have never been tested on animals or particularly hairy coconuts. In addition to their in-house line of products, B-True Organics carries brands such as Dr. Bronner's, ilike, and SpaRitual. B-True's respectable menu of spa services lets customers put its products to the test in private treatment rooms as they receive organic facials or massages that employ Hawaiian and Balinese techniques.
Drawing from the boutique's selection of natural, chemical-free skincare products, the aestheticians on staff provide skincare services that address a number of complexion maladies. Skin experts also work closely with clients who are battling acne, offering a six-week program that incorporates products and visits to the boutique to manage problem skin and keep blemishes at bay.
Here's what you'll find in a private treatment room at Callisto Therapeutic Spa: A skilled aesthetician or massage therapist. A heated table. Matte, dark walls that spin a cocoon-like effect. Hot towels. An automated essential oil diffuser, quietly emitting puffs of fragrant steam. Complimentary herbal tea and infused water, scooped from the spa's drinkable moat. And on the ceiling directly above that heated table, two parallel bars suspended from the ceiling.
What are the bars for? During ashiatsu massages, they help the therapist keep her balance as she walks on the client's back. There are plenty of less intensive massage therapies on duty. Clients can commission craniosacral, reflexology, or thermal palms, an alternative to hot stones and prenatal massage; each is customized to address specific ailments and pain points. Facials, meanwhile, include microdermabrasion treatments and skin analyzation. Despite the service menu's diversity, each treatment is conducted with a focus on total relaxation.
