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.
The term “nail artist” can be taken literally when applied to Kalea, who draws on nearly 10 years of experience to create a miniature masterpiece on the tip of every finger she touches. Her designs include glossy monochromes, elaborate mosaics of rhinestones and seed beads, and painstakingly detailed maps of local bus lines. No matter which of her artworks they choose, all of the clients at Kalea Nails get the same friendly treatment. This goes for first-time visitors as well as loyal celebrities such as Big Boi and Erica Dixon.

Total Life 360’s massage therapists melt tension with more than a half dozen kneading modalities, including trigger-point therapy and reflexology—all performed either in the soothing studio or at the home or office of clients.
