Tan LA's Smart Tan?certified staff takes pride in matching each body with its perfect tanning method. Its customized tanning programs begin with an analysis of each client's skin type to determine which of the shop's meticulously maintained European beds is best suited to their needs. With four levels of intensity and exposure times ranging from 9 to 20 minutes, the studio is able to cater to complexions from fair to olive, whereas talented airbrush technicians offer custom-blended solutions for those who prefer not to be exposed to bulbs or their annoying sunny dispositions.
Beyond bronzing, Tan LA keeps the beach-bound looking their best with advanced spa services that range from cellulite-shrinking Formostar body wraps to red-light anti-aging therapies that, like profound Pink Floyd lyrics, penetrate 8 to 10 millimeters below the skin?s surface, working to boost blood flow and stimulate collagen growth
Summer Breeze offers high-quality body bronzing and spa services in a sleek, relaxed, and trendy atmosphere. Clients can repose as they soak up the rays in UV beds or enhance their natural skin tone with a UV-free, airbrush tanning alternative. In addition to boasting traditional bronzing services, Summer Breeze pampers guests with an array of spa services, including infrared body wraps, facials, and microdermabrasion. This 22-room salon's recent aesthetic expansion has kept technicians brightening beauty beyond the surface for all guests.
Deep exhalations drift past the wood paneling, cascades of draped fabric, and hillocks of pillows in the treatment rooms at Beauty Essentials Day Spa. When not kneading the backs of clients, the staff takes a holistic approach to health and works to balance the body through energy work and biofeedback sessions. Aestheticians beautify patrons with facials, nail treatments, and waxing before video conferences with business partners and regular phone calls with psychics.
Vie the Spa is an exclusive women’s spa that caters to female well-being with body-swaddling detoxifying wraps. Developed by biochemists from UCLA Medical Center, the herbal formulation of a M’lis Detox Contour wrap encourages circulatory lymphatic flow, which cleanses tissues without laundry detergent guesswork. Clients relax in a warm cocoon that keeps the skin and body hydrated as cellulite dissipates and up to 14 inches melt away from forms like butter on a Saharan sidewalk.

Pro Tip: Try the combination of Swedish, traditional Thai, and hot-stone massage.
What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Professional massage using a combination of Swedish massage, Thai massage, and hot-stone therapy. Thai massage involves stretching and acupressure to promote vascular- and energy-flow. Swedish massage is a more relaxing technique that incorporates oil and smooth pressure. Hot-stone therapy uses heated stones to treat specific problem areas needing heat and direct pressure.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
While living and growing up in Thailand, I liked getting massages from my auntie. I learned Thai massage and realized that I am very good at it.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
Several clients have told me that I gave them the best massages of their lives. Those comments made me feel good about what I am doing. My massage teachers also told me that I have naturally good hands for massage.
