At Ark Hair & Spa, beauticians infuse their slew of hair, massage, and nail services with Japanese flair. Therapists target pressure points to relieve aching muscles during shiatsu massages, and they alleviate stress caused by table phobias during Thai floor massages. During beauty-boosting treatments, staffers wield high-end products such as Calgel nail gel and antioxidant-rich Moroccanoil hair elixir. The studio’s decor speaks to the soothing power of simplicity, as clients relax among clean white walls and Japanese paper screens.
In his study of the human body and its pressure points, Rommel Vila logged 2,200 hours of training to earn the title of registered shiatsupractor. During each shiatsu session, he applies precise pressure with his fingers and palms to specific sites on the body, releasing tension and restoring balance to the body and its musculature. Clients keep their clothes on as Rommel works, gauging tension and sensitivity in specific points and identifying larger stress patterns that have developed over time.
The technicians at Seasons Beauty & Spa offer a variety of soothing and beautifying experiences. Their services include body treatments such as Swedish massages, sugar scrubs, and foot massages, along with waxing, eyelash extensions, and facial treatments.
At Mission Oaks Laser & Spa, a licensed crew of laser technicians and aestheticians buffs bodily exteriors in a clean and professional environment. Medicam intense-pulsed-light units lower the friction coefficients of upper lips, chins, and bikini lines and work to remove tattoos, reduce wrinkles, and eliminate spider veins. The team also eschews these light-based labours to perform a slate of spa services, such as massages, mani-pedis, and hair stylings. Before each treatment during complimentary consultations, clients can choose their technician and express their individual needs and any concerns.
