To Mary Valdez, there’s more to massage than just touch. The massage therapist believes that education should augment every bodywork treatment, and that it’s her job to help her clients understand why they’re experiencing discomfort and how they can prevent it. Of course, touch is crucial, and Mary draws upon her many certifications in Swedish, hot-stone, and shell massage to create a tailored service that offers a soothing antidote to each client's chief complaint. In a dimly lit room, Mary provides her clients with pillows, bolsters, and a heating blanket, and conducts her massages using heated oils and lotions to provide maximum comfort and relief.

Eve's staff of beauty buffs and licensed cosmeticians pampers guests in its pastel-hued studio, while restoring lost vigor from cranium to claw. During the Revolution Whitening treatment, a technician will first fill a soft, flexible mouth tray with a safe, peroxide-based gel, making sure each of the specially designed grooves comfortably swaddles the cuspids. Next, you'll close your maw and sink your teeth into the advanced solution, which launches a quick, effective campaign against stains, lightening dingy dentals an average of four to seven shades in as little as a quarter of an hour. Another 15 minutes under a special LED light seals in the pearly luminescence, and leaves teeth shining like a freshly waxed Christmas tree in the Ecuadorian sun.
