Amore Day Spa?s owner Kelly Kim spent years honing her craft by working as a licensed aesthetician and product specialist before opening her own day spa in 2011. Born and raised in South Korea, she spent the first eight years of her career traveling between her home country and Seattle, making her particularly well-suited to address the needs of other busy women who often forget to make time for themselves. Together with her staff, Kelly doles out relaxation in the form of everything from tailored hot-stone massages to whole-body steam treatments that leave skin feeling soft and polished with help from salt or sugar scrubs. She can also cut down morning makeup routines with permanent eyeliner or employ full-body waxing services to trim seconds off long commutes by playground slide.
Harmony Within Wellness Center boasts a staff that includes massage therapists, acupuncturists, and life coaches, and they're bound together by a singular mission: to offer a welcoming place for clients to heal and rejuvenate. The center provides numerous means of doing that. The massage menu features modalities to treat a variety of needs: for instance, the Bellabaci Works massage uses silicone cups in conjunction with slimming technology and plant extracts to help detoxify the body and improve skin texture. The Remembering Me massage helps new moms feel balanced and relaxed with an organic body scrub and a paraffin foot mask. Other services include energy healing, acupuncture, and infrared sauna treatments to help ease pain and reduce stress.
Visitors find a wall of light within California Synergy & Wellness Center's private treatment rooms. Vertical bulbs shine in a rainbow of colors, bathing clients in infrared rays and good vibes that permeate throughout the body. The system, known as the Photon Genius, is one of the wellness center's signature treatments, and it can potentially render numerous health benefits. The staff also helps clients lose weight with nutritional counseling.
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. The warm whirlpool action taking place beneath the cushion of the Hydro-Massage bed relieves stress and muscle tension, leaving bodies as relaxed as a hypnotherapist's pet rock. The infrared heat and nutrient-shrouding steam of the Hydro-Derma Fusion machine moisturizes parched pores and surge skin-collagen production, and fine lines and pigmentation problems flee from the therapeutic light of the Luminous facial, an FDA-approved treatment designed to illuminate skin from within. Tanning beds deliver a sun-kissed pelt, while Red-Light Therapy, the newest addition to the Planet Beach family, uses infrared light to deliver therapeutic treatments.

The I-ACT certified technicians at Alternative Wellness Day Spa steer clients toward stronger health with holistic treatments including infrared body wraps, massages, and colon-hydrotherapy sessions. Shawna, the colon hydrotherapist, entered the field over a decade ago after forays with the treatment produced a significant uptick in her own health. She now works alongside a massage therapist with over 1,000 hours of tension-battling experience to improve the health and well-being of their clients.
Wine-tinted curtains separate the comfortable lounge area from the private colon-hydrotherapy treatment rooms, where guests recline in specialized seats designed to ensure comfort and restore healthy gastrointestinal function.
