The treatment room at Massage1Spa looks like something you'd find in a palace. Behind the massage tables, a row of enormous oriental fans hangs from a wall the color of terra cotta. It's here where the spa's certified therapists relieve stress with head-to-toe massages. Their specialty reflexology technique seeks out pressure points in the hands and feet to restore function, release tension, and unscramble the brain's radio signals.
OM Day Spa's quintet of therapists performs a plethora of pampering massage, skincare, and waxing services. A few therapists take care of the skincare side of the spa. They execute everything from manual dermabrasion to facials that employ ironizing technology and magnets to erase blemishes. Others handle the massage side, having mastered modalities such as Swedish, warm bamboo, and prenatal. The team also provides body slimming and detoxing wraps, as well as cosmetic enhancements such as eyelash extensions.
Thanks to its recent remodel, one might be surprised to hear that the salon and spa known as Christopher Stephens has pampered clients with personalized beauty treatments for the past 15 years. The salon’s stylists draw on the experience amassed in that period to add length and definition to manes with 100% human-hair extensions and bioionic straightening tools. Not to be outdone, the aestheticians brighten complexions with seven types of facials and bronze skin with UV-free airbrush-tanning solutions. Whether styling hair or scraping off the sticky remnants of a nightly cocoon, Christopher Stephens’s staff members pride themselves on using professional beauty products from brands such as OPI, Keratin Complex, and BareMinerals.
Seven days a week, the certified massage therapists at Healthwise Massage work to give their clients a reprieve from emotional and physical stress. First-time massage clients are perfectly primed for a relaxing Swedish massage, which uses a progression of stroking, tapping, and kneading movements to loosen tension and boost circulation. Those in need of focused pressure can try a deep-tissue massage, during which therapists use slow, concentrated pressure to bring relief from chronic pain, immobility, spasms, or involuntary jitterbugging.
BodyCentre Day Spa often looks beneath the surface, searching for ways to make clients feel rejuvenated inside and out. This commitment even helped the Costa Mesa location earn a spot on the CBS Los Angeles list of 2014's Best Day Spas In Orange County.
The spas' massage therapists perform a range of relaxing and mind-centering modalities that can relieve chronic aches while restoring a greater sense of focus and self-awareness. This includes everything from deep-tissue work and acupressure to shiatsu and reflexology. The spas' skincare treatments adopt a similarly broad approach, improving tone and texture as they address individual needs with a combination of specialized products, noninvasive techniques, and advanced technologies?including hyperbaric oxygen and sea fennel stem cells. For a thoroughly cleansing experience, the centers even offer detoxifying colon-hydrotherapy sessions.
The licensed aestheticians and massage therapists at Modern Day Spa soothe the skin and relax the mind with beauty and bodywork treatments. The spa's facials cleanse pores, fight acne, and fight the signs of aging, whereas the full-body seaweed mask detoxifies from head to toe and provides excellent camouflage during games of Marco Polo. Swedish massage, shiatsu, and reflexology techniques knead tension from tired muscles and recalibrate energy levels during tranquil 60-minute sessions.
