The combination of flowers, thoroughly cushioned reddish-brown leather chairs, mint-green walls, and Asian decorative accents gives Leisure Health Spa a tranquil appearance. But the center’s trained acupuncturists, massage therapists, and aestheticians do their part as well to instill a sense of calm in each client. Therapists use a soothing touch as they knead out knots lodged in legs and lengthen spines compressed like cartoon accordions—meaning someone drew them that way. The spa’s aestheticians, armed with Obagi skincare products, also foster relaxing experiences. But they do so by way of custom facials, which help brighten and smooth complexions affected by acne, wrinkles, and overactive oil glands. Clients can feel at ease even during detoxifying body wraps, as technicians cocoon their contour-cream-covered figures tightly to boost lymphatic circulation.
Laser Fat Loss Clinic East Bay's FDA-approved lasers are the backbone of the clinic, which strives to help clients melt fat and lose inches with various weight-loss solutions. These noninvasive lipolasers help contour bodies by penetrating fat cells and causing them to release their contents into the body, evicting inches and smoothing cellulite while they shrink. For even less invasive procedures, the clinic proffers two detoxification programs, nutritional counseling, and whole-body vibration platforms, for days when people simply can't muster the energy to shimmy for extended periods of time.
Getting a tan typically requires a sunny day, a beach, and most importantly, an open schedule. When time becomes an obstacle to achieving a summery glow, Tanner’s Paradise expedites the tanning process with its four levels of high-powered beds, from the level 1 Genesis beds to the level 4 Saturn beds. Those wishing to eschew UV rays altogether can step into Tanner's automated Mystic Tan spray booths, which engulf bodies in a mist of DHA, bronzers, aloe, and moisturizers resulting in a streak-free tan that lasts up to 10 days. The salon’s Smart Tan–certified staff helps clients further darken their complexions with a range of Designer Skin and Luminary accelerator lotions, which boost the effectiveness of bronzing sessions and render bodies slippery enough to escape awkwardly long hugs.
With six massage rooms and a staff of certified massage therapists, Mission Massage Therapy Center can cater to every client's personal massage needs. Its expansive menu of services includes Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, and hot-stone massages, as well as couples treatments.
Clients leaving La Val Skin Studio often look different somehow—refreshed and more relaxed. The masterminds behind the newly rejuvenated skin and brightened eyes are the expert skin specialists inside the studio.

They strip away unwanted hair with waxing services, and sooth tired backs with purifying treatments and mineral sea salt polishes. The versatile techs even offer specialty services for gents, including a facial tailored to accommodate the unique skincare needs of older boys, men, and silverback gorillas.
