Like a professor knowledgeable on tulip mania, alien black oil, and a myriad of seemingly esoteric subjects, Massage Envy's certified body therapists ably converse with the gamut of muscle ailments. They'll unravel tense coils of accumulated inner-stress through a perfectly catered treatment for individual clients' needs. Swedish massages offer gentle rubbing for muscular soothing and improved circulation, while reflexology focuses on a patient's crawling paddles, delivering relief to hands and feet to extend goodwill throughout the entire body. A prenatal massage is ideal for expecting mothers who could use a little relief from carrying another person inside them, and a hot-stone Envy massage transforms massage hands into warm-rock fingers that heat pain into a gaseous vapor that exits the body and eventually becomes cleanly filtered rain.
Glamourellaz's mobile makeup services beautify clients on location.

Allure Bodyworks' certified massage therapists evict bothersome aches by tailoring four types of full-body massage to the distinct needs of their clients. Each personalized kneadfest aims to shed inner toxins, thereby elevating energy levels, ousting chronic pains, and making exes second-guess their decision to date only toxic avengers. The studio furthers client comfort by accentuating each appointment with soothing music, soft lighting, and comfortable massage tables swathed in crisp sheets and blankets. The massage suites are also outfitted with safe spaces to store wallets, phones, and other personal effects to ensure an anxiety-free session.
In their six private design and pampering rooms, the hair benders of La'shus Hair Designs & Day Spas perform luxury salon treatments and skin-smoothing spa services, and present a toothsome menu of juice, café fare, and coffee drinks. Put upstart strands in place with a designer cut ($69+) and nibble a cookie ($4) into the profile of a favorite Cheers cast member. Transform tresses with an all-over permanent color ($89+), and put the remainder toward a facial ($85+) that seals its skin-revitalizing treatment with a personalized mask and moisturizer. A multivitamin body treatment ($125) helps to dissipate dark spots and reduce wrinkles, and renders the epidermis as smooth as the surface of a freshly poured fruit slush ($8–$10). Though this Groupon is only redeemable from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., La'shus Hair Design is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week for the convenience of sleep-walking salonistas.
At Spa 33, each staff member plays a specific role in the spa’s healing and beautifying disciplines, from custom massages to aesthetics and makeup application. Clients in need of a massage can match their needs with one of four massage therapists, all of whom are identified on the website by their general degree of massage pressure on a scale of 1–10. Using this scale, clients can seek out a therapist who can offer a gliding, gentle massage or one who breaks up muscle knots and tendons in mid-clash. In addition to massages, complexion-beautifying spa services draw from ingredients known to have healing properties, such as pumpkin and European roses. The spa offers extended hours on Thursday and Friday, and appointments can be booked online.
In the colorful, light-filled rooms of Gracy Elements Spa, San Diego Lashes’ specialized aestheticians have perfected one craft: creating long, full lashes with synthetic eyelash extensions. Lashes come in a variety of lengths, thicknesses, materials, and shapes, including the natural J curl, dramatic C curl, and intimidating Z curl for predatory butterfly kisses. During the 1.5- to 2-hour application, the lash artist uses a special adhesive to forge a molecular bond between each falsie and the natural lash, creating a durable hold that helps extensions stay in place for the entirety of the lash's life cycle.
Salon Serene owner Serena Seaton boasts 18 years of hairstyling experience and helms a staff consisting of an aesthetician, massage therapist, manicurist, and several hairstylists. The team offers a full menu of hair services, including Featherlocks extensions and haircuts for women, men, and children. Along with hair services, the salon professionals perform facials, nailcare, and massage therapy; their hair-removal services implement gentle techniques instead of attempting to duct-tape customers to a ceiling to extract unwanted hair from its roots.
