Though threading primarily deals with hair removal, the real focus of the service is the skin. Many depilation methods extract unwanted strands, but leave skin irritated and subject to wrinkle-producing tugs and yanks. Threading combats these unwanted effects with a 100% cotton thread that loops and uproots unwanted hair, eliminating the need for chemicals that can cause breakouts and require the placement of hazard stickers on faces. Beauty By Thread’s expert technicians wield strings with the utmost precision, creating sultry eyebrow arches and removing hair from upper lips, sideburns, or infringing hair lines.
Threading leaves brows expertly shaped for up to three weeks, and the staff also offer Lizette Mineral eyebrow-makeup kits, which combine 10 shades of water-resistant powders and six stencils that allow clients to maintain beautiful looks at home. Clients can also add an exotic touch to their look with the shop's showcase of ankle bracelets, bangles, and tiaras instead of filling out the endless paperwork required to adopt a pet tiger.
A plump Buddha statue stands guard near the entrance of Chakras Healing and Day Spa. Along with Persian rugs and earth-toned walls, he's part of the award-winning spa's decorative strategy meant to ease clients' minds. Client peace of mind is one of the highest priorities of Chakras' staff, which is composed entirely of veteran providers. They believe Chakras' exclusive use of high-end products and reliably comfortable ambiance are the two chief factors that attract clientele. For example, while treatment rooms at some other spas have sterile, clinical-looking furnishings or are haunted by ghosts, Chakras' treatment rooms sport hardwood floors, ornate wall hangings and drapes, and soft lighting.
Chakras Healing and Day Spa also offers a large array of spa services including manicures and pedicures, massage treatments, facials, and body wraps. Those looking to combine treatments may opt for one of the spa packages.
The laser technicians at Central Valley Laser Center help slenderize patients with the Lipo-Light laser. During the headlining treatment, patients don light- and heat-emitting pads on problem areas. The laser prompts the fat cells to release their contents for later removal through the lymphatic system—a process that can be expedited through light exercise or speed walking away from the center’s pet grizzly bear. In addition to contouring physiques, the treatment can help diminish the appearance of cellulite.

Comfort takes many forms at Power of Touch Massage and Healing Day Spa. The aestheticians, nail technicians, and massage therapists all work together to pamper clients with indulgent spa treatments intended to provide relief from physical as well as mental stress. During massages, the therapists employ relaxing and healing modalities, which can help soothe tension-laden muscles, increase circulation, or alleviate chronic joint pains. The spa’s specialized body wraps bolster metabolisms and nourish the skin by slathering limbs and torsos with everything from kelp and Dead Sea salt to algae and green tea extracts. Basic facial treatments cleanse and hydrate skin, and mani-pedis beautify nails with vibrant polishes by producers such as O.P.I. and Shellac.
Massage might be the only form of treatment offered at New Happy Day Spa, but that's not to say that the studio's clients don't have options. Traditionalists can stick to Swedish massage, made more fluid by the use of oils. Deep-tissue massage often gets a helping hand from warmed basalt stones, which loosen areas of tension and calm the nervous system. The spa's resident massage therapists have another mode of targeting aches: the Chinese art of reflexology, which uses a pressure-point map of the feet in an attempt to stimulate healing throughout the body and banish phantom socks.
