With scientific grounding from onsite physicians, the staff at The iBody design courses of pound-shedding and detoxifying treatments that focus on resetting metabolism, balancing hormones, and liquefying fat cells with lasers. Using iBody's medical weight-loss program helps stored fat release 1,500–4,000 calories per day, the equivalent of an armchair made out of hamburger. SmartLipo treatments help vanquish fat cells by prodding flab with laser fibers through a canella, whereas testosterone therapy inserts small pellets under the skin that release small doses of weight loss–inducing hormones over the course of three to six months.
Each creative cut is supplemented by a deep conditioning treatment and stylish blow-drying. All headscaping is calculated after careful consideration of a client's hair type and bone structure to craft a snug cut. Hair services also include a color consultation that explores potential hue directions for a dramatic change that complements unearthed spring wardrobes (actual coloring service is not included in this deal).
Skincare is J&S Beauty Inc.'s specialty. Owner and trilingual beauty guru Susie Yu helms a staff of eight, including licensed aestheticians and massage therapists who relax and rejuvenate by blending an all-natural philosophy with the latest in safe cosmetic technologies. Classic facials keep pores clean and healthy, whereas other treatments—such as microdermabrasion, derma-therapeutic sessions, or LHE laser whitening—focus specifically on reducing wrinkles, acne, or pigmentation. Body treatments, on the other hand, such as Thermo Cool help slim waistlines by toning muscle, burning fat, and smoothing cellulite.
Soft, neutral colors permeate a decor that marries tranquil tones with clinical sensibilities. Private treatment rooms remain clean and orderly while enticing patrons with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and some even boast showers to rinse away sweat built up in the steam room and the remnants of pre-appointment food fights.
A meditation room, fresh fruit, and warm teas help clients find peace at Organic Zen Spa while they enjoy therapeutic services from massage therapists and aestheticians. During lavish spa facials, aestheticians determine skin's exact needs with an analysis and then ease spirits with an upper-body massage. Using Eminence Organic skincare products, facials incorporate natural ingredients such as yam and pumpkin enzymes to replenish vitamins and essential nutrients. Clients can elongate eyelashes with silk or mink extensions in more than 600 combinations of curl, length, color, and language proficiencies. Waxing and threading services shape and remove body hair.
After treatments, customers can glide to enlightenment in the on-site meditation room, snack on tea and fresh fruit, or peruse luxury skin and body products made for spa-goers intent on smuggling serenity home.
Before Bessy Lim had her first facial, her life was a succession of stressful, 12-hour shifts. Her first spa experience awakened a latent desire: she wanted to help others find the relaxation she had forgone for so long. With that, she left her stressful career, earned a number of spa certifications, traveled abroad to learn the various therapeutic techniques and ways to pronounce "microdermabrasion" of spas overseas, and finally opened Agua De Vida. There, a corps of certified and licensed massage therapists team up with the spa specialist to mend tense muscles with massage, swaddle bodies in wraps, purify pores with facials, and primp hands and feet with nail services.

Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
Hot pads for different parts of the body, oils, and pain-relieving gel.
What are some of your most popular services? Why do you think clients love them so much?
Our most popular service is our 90-minute traditional Chinese and Swedish massage. Clients love it because it helps relieve their pain and helps them relax at the same time.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a client?
We have several clients that used to take sleeping pills every day, but since they [started] coming for our foot and body massages, they no longer need them. That's the reason I opened my spa—I love it when my clients say we made their day.
