At Oasis Club and Spa for Women, the dual energizing effects of exercise and relaxation meet under the same roof. Ladies of any age can seek out camaraderie and encouragement as they burn calories in outdoor boot-camp programs, Pro Fit semiprivate personal-training sessions, and group classes that include Zumba, yoga, and circuit training. Even when prepping for solo workouts, guests can benefit from the warm staff's instructions on how to use their stock of HumanSport functional-training equipment from Star Trac.
Spa visits needn't be a solitary affair, either. Friends can find serenity simultaneously with party packages for girls' nights and outings for couples, brightening their complexions with Dermalogica skincare products and gabbing about the latest in cucumber-based eyewear. The spa tries to incorporate all-natural ingredients into treatments such as Bronze Biologic spray tans, Nufree botanical hair removal, and hot-stone massages.
Tina Angelique Brown, a licensed massage therapist and owner of Just Relax Massage Therapy, strives to help patients recover from injuries and bolster overall health. She works with a skilled staff to exercise muscle aches and soreness during trigger-point, Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, prenatal, and reflexology massages. Craniosacral therapy works to relieve stress and pain by focusing gentle pressure on the skull, as well as the spine, which supports the brain and transmits its disdain for the body’s dance moves. Alternatively, the team helps shoo away stress with body wraps, facials, and microdermabrasions.
On the surface, Anew MediSpa looks like an upscale spa, with a homey waiting room decked out in hardwood furniture and sunny yellow paint. The services fit the bill, too: traditional facials, waxing, and massage therapy among them. However, the center boasts a medical director, Dr. Ashley Chin, who personally administers all injections of Botox and Juvéderm. It's her medical expertise, paired with the center's state-of-the-art technology, that gives Anew its edge.
Dr. Chin oversees the safety of the med spa's laser treatments, which include hair and spider-vein removal, skin tightening, photofacials, and acne treatments. Despite the reliance on technology, Dr. Chin and her team of aestheticians are personally invested in each treatment, maintaining a professional-and-inviting atmosphere that makes clients feel at ease.
Lisa Anderson—owner and head cosmetologist at STYLZ by Lisa—brings her 26 years of experience into every consultation.

"I love working with people to help them look an feel their best," she says, "whether it is for special occasions or helping them find a style and color that fits their lifestyle."

Orthossage leaves no doubt that its therapists know what they’re doing: every week, they participate in continuing-education courses to stay up to snuff on their craft. That dedication enables the Orthossage team to deliver a wide array of modalities, including an advanced orthopedic technique that focuses specifically on muscle attachments. No matter the type of massage a client chooses, though, Orthossage enhances every visit with aromatherapy, topical muscle pain reliever, and steamed towels. The facility also provides 3D anatomical photos so clients can see what groups of muscles get worked on without having to dissect a mannequin.
The up-to-date lasers at Belallure Laser & Wellness Center are a triple threat?they can reduce unwanted hair growth, erase tattoos, and obscure signs of aging. Noninvasive Laser 360 treatments compound photonic wonderment by toning crinkled skin, smoothing out wrinkles, and balancing discoloration. The physician-supervised team also inspires overall well-being with an arsenal of more traditional spa treatments. Hot-stone and Swedish massages, for example, relax musculatures, whereas a set of facials brighten complexions better than neon blush at a blacklight disco.
