An aesthetician gently scrubs a mixture of Dead Sea salts and moisturizing oil over a client's skin, revealing younger and fresher layers of cells; in another room, a massage therapist places heated stones onto tense muscles, dispersing the stress they've been harboring for months. Scenarios such as these are common at Evene Day Spa, where the staff specializes in both relaxation and beautifying treatments. The spa's menu also includes European facials which allot one hour to eliminate dirt and exfoliate to clear the pores. In addition to improving skin condition, the spa's aestheticians keep faces looking polished with permanent cosmetics for the eyes, eyebrows, or lips, leaving time in the mornings for more important endeavors, such as baking homemade Lucky Charms.
A spa can be a welcome respite from a busy day, but so can home, which is why Labella Mobile Nail Spa’s nail technicians travel to their clients’ residences to perform mobile services. Once there, they clean, buff, and paint fingernails and toenails during private appointments or spa parties. They even offer reflexology services, applying pressure to points on the hands and feet that correspond with different body areas. This practice helps to improve circulation and ease anxiety caused by learning that your pinky toe affects your eyesight.
Tali Pariser came all the way from Israel to New York in a journey that led her to study chiropractic medicine.

For more than 10 years, she's used her skills to quell a slew of common aches, such as migraines, sports injuries, pregnancy pains, carpal tunnel, and whiplash. Her team at Radiant Health Chiropractic includes two licensed massage therapists who further her mission, quieting chronic aches by pressing the hard-to-reach mute button at the top of the spine.
