Sugaring—the Egyptians have been doing it since 1900 BC. The hair-removal method uses a material made from sugar, lemon juice, and water that, when applied, doesn’t stick to skin cells, taking only hair with it when removed. At Sugaring Studio, the expertly trained staff understands the benefits of using their organic-skincare lineup. Sugaring Studio also offers lash extensions for those wanting to add a little something to the top.
When clients open the door to Daravadee Spa & Massage Therapy, the heady scents of lemongrass and jasmine come flowing past noses before eyes lock onto decorative Thai statues and delicate orchids. Within candlelit treatment rooms, staff members trained in ancient eastern healing techniques employ their skills to soothe muscle tension and purify complexions. Among the therapies offered at Daravadee, yoga-like Thai massage, herbal compresses of tamarind and kaffir leaves, and all-natural spa products set the center apart from other relaxation oases. But Daravadee’s most unique offering is guasa. A body-scrub treatment rooted in Chinese healing practices, guasa helps boost circulation and detoxify skin with the help of a wooden sloughing instrument. Each treatment is performed in a private room, ensuring privacy and comfort for clients and their shy backs.
Thairapy Salon and Spa is a pamper-centric beauty boutique. Facials feature glycolic exfoliators, Hydradermie brand products, and fruit enzymes, including lemon zest, pumpkin/orange, and pomegranate, which has been considered a fruit for over three years now.

Once they've been snipped, dyed, massaged, polished, and scrubbed, guests float on a cloud of relaxation to the on-site boutique, where colorful apparel and accessories cap off new looks and reflect sunny moods.
Committed to holistic unity and relaxation, the professional staff at Everyday Zen Relaxation Studio fuses a soothing, intimate environment and trained techniques to carry the corpus to tension-free rapture. Cozy up to a warm cup of fair-trade Rishi tea in the lounge until one of the friendly staff members welcomes you to his or her bliss chamber for a thoroughly therapeutic deep-tissue massage. During a 60-minute treatment, the mitten fillers of a master therapist will skate smooth circles and figure eights on the surface of your back, boosting circulation, oxygenating muscles, and promoting peacefulness. The comprehensive Zen package combines organic products and body-buffing techniques from a variety of disciplines and healing modalities, including Reiki & Chakra balancing, reflexology, aromatherapy, hot stones, and pressure-point therapy.
At Executive Fitness & Med Spa, licensed professionals burnish epidermises with state-of-the-art treatments designed to yield clearer and silkier skinscapes. Eschewing the processes of waxing, plucking, or ripping off limb-sized band-aids, the 30-minute laser hair-removal treatments transmit a cavalcade of hair-slaying wavelengths into follicles' melanin to diminish their ability to regenerate unwanted fuzz. Specialists recommend a streak of three to six treatments spaced six to eight weeks apart to achieve skin as smooth as a newborn kitten's jazz solo. Or opt for the microdermabrasion treatments, during which one of the staffers will sluice your face with a stream of exfoliating crystals to slough away dead and sullied cells from the outer epidermal layer. A comfortable hydrating mask concludes each treatment, working to heal husks at the end of the restorative 30-minute session.
Ace Rehab relies on a combination of physical therapy, medical massage, and alternative medicine treatments to restore optimal function to bodies. Licensed physical therapists can help heal ailments ranging from muscle strains to torn ligaments to arthritis. Health experts create custom fitness programs, too, taking into account a patient's injury and one's ability to heal. Qualified patients even get free transportation to and from the clinic.
Medical massages incorporate such techniques as targeted deep-tissue kneads and gentle Swedish strokes, and can complement the physical therapy. Ace's acupuncturists can also help with problems unrelated to pain, such as rosacea and infertility.
