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.

Spa Dhara’s dozens of body and beauty treatments unite physical and mental peace just as they harmonize Eastern practices with a Western approach. Ayurvedic and Turkish methods combine with natural and organic products to nourish the skin during facials, microdermabrasion, and body services. Signature treatments keep tension at bay with heated stones and bamboo, alongside unique ingredients such as goat’s milk and lava clays imported from Morocco’s most serene volcanoes. Spa Dhara also meets beauty needs in the salon, where threading sessions remove unwanted hair, mani-pedis spruce up hand and toe tips, and henna designs provide an intricate alternative to scrawled grocery lists.
Beauology's owner Sridevi Rejeti helms a team of beauty specialists, who style strands, groom nails, remove unwanted hair, and apply makeup and henna to skin. Like a first date, each appointment begins with a consultation to discuss the client's requirements, and staffers then create a service to accommodate individual needs. Salon chairs rest in front of tall mirrors where clients watch new hairstyles form with the snips of scissors or brows retreat with the twist of a cotton thread. Neon pillows pop from the black background of a sleek leather couch stretched out behind pedicure tubs, and separate treatment rooms soothe clients with tranquil greens or blues and organic décor.
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.
