Jenn Guerra is a person of many talents. The certified massage therapist practices numerous forms of bodywork, from the intense pressure of deep-tissue massage to the targeted manipulation of trigger-point therapy and acupressure. But she knows just as much about the spirit as she does the body. She regularly holds spiritual readings in private sessions, at events and parties, and even over the phone, as long as the client’s line isn’t being tied up by someone going on the Internet in 1995. For all of these services, Jenn Guerra can work out of her office or travel directly to clients' homes.
Crystal Vargas knows that beauty is more than skin-deep. That’s why the licensed aesthetician doesn’t haphazardly slather her client’s skin with a few lotions and call it a day. Instead, she uses custom skincare regimes to boost confidence, and ultimately beauty, from the inside out. Crystal doles out face and body treatments, from a refreshing facial that uses steam to restore skin’s natural glow to designer peels that gradually diminish pigmentation. She also helps newly rejuvenated skin really steal the spotlight with waxing treatments for the face and body, and cancan lessons for shy legs.

Named the People's Choice best day spa by The Fresno Bee in 2010, Zena's Day Spa pampers guests with a full range of relaxing spa services. Zena's soaks guest in a quiet, warm, cream-colored ambience while a professional staff blasts away stress from the body like a soothing pleasure laser. During each paraffin pedicure ($60), a foot restoration expert soaks sock fillers in a whirlpool, exfoliates the skin, rejuvenates cuticles, shapes and polishes the nails, and massages the feet like tingly vibrations emanating from a massive speaker during an 80s hair band ballad sung in French. To top off pedicures, feet are infused with aromatherapy paraffin to soften dried-out skin. Next, a certified massage therapist will exorcise mischievous, knot-inducing spirits from the muscles during a 30-minute body massage ($40). Customers can also upgrade to a 30-minute couples massage for an additional $40. Potential effects of each massage may lead to relaxation, increased circulation, and the body purring like a gently petted tuba.
Sheer Bliss's skilled technicians begin each facial with a skin analysis and then brew a blend of earth-originating products customized to your specific skin type, be it metamorphic or extra-crispy. A thorough cleansing will open shuttered pores so that the stimulating exfoliation can steam-roll through and clear them of dirt, oil, caked makeup, caked cake, and families of raccoons. Sheer Bliss uses only organic Éminence skincare products from Hungary to ensure that cells are mollycoddled with nature's sweetest cocktail of nutrients. Finally, you'll receive a lymphatic massage of the face, neck, décolleté, hands, and arms to improve circulation.
