The aestheticians at Faces365 Spa understand that a healthy face needs more than regular cleansing. They specialize, of course, in skincare, including facials by Image Skincare and YonKa Paris, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and non-invasive face lifts. Each session includes a personalized recommendations based on skin type. Beauty professionals supplement these treatments with deep massages of the brows, jaw, and other areas where the face tends to store tension. They'll even venture beyond the face when it comes to full-service waxing, stripping away hair from tricky areas such as the bikini line and palms.
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.
The healing services offered by Chene Watson run the gamut—from traditional treatments, such as deep-tissue and Swedish massage, to music therapy with the 26-string Celtic harp. Certified by the state of California and a member of the American Massage Therapy Association, Watson has a knowledge of varying massage modalities that’s as deep as the ocean’s resentment of the sky. Watson often mixes and matches styles during treatment to create a completely customized experience.

At RESToration Massage by Diana, a licensed massage therapist mollifies aches and encourages relaxation with many modalities of massages, including deep tissue, shiatsu, and aromatherapy. Salt and sugar scrubs for hands, feet, and backs hydrate skin and seek to increase circulation.
When it comes to bolstering visages, the pros at Beauty Spa Secrets aren’t ones to keep a secret. In fact, they readily answer questions while cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing faces during facials. Their tricks of the trade include Dermalogica mediBac products, which blast through acne; glycolic peels, which iron out wrinkles; and pigment-relief gel, which brightens skin. They also curtail unwanted upper-lip fuzz, overgrown eyebrows, and thatches of hair on the liver with warm wax.
