The highly trained hands at Puttin' on the Ritz… Island Style Salon and Spa pep up pores with rejuvenating paraffin facials. Instead of bedding down each night on a loofah pillow, visitors relax over 45 minutes as aestheticians purify each inch of their facial landscape with a customized blend of Repêchage skin-care products. A paraffin mask exfoliates as it moisturizes, and a final 20-step massage boosts circulation in the head, neck, hands, and feet while releasing stress from its sinewy fortress. Puttin’ on the Ritz's waiting room welcomes guests with beverages to hydrate them inside and out, and clients can request both early-morning and late-evening appointments to accommodate busy schedules. Beach balls, sunhats, and other Caribbean décor brighten the eye-popping pastel walls of the salon and private facial room like Christmas lights wrapped around an Easter Bunny.

Drs. Cynthia Clark and Courtney Connell of Longevity Wellness Clinic believe in a fruitful melding of eastern and western medical practices. Specializing in acupuncture, they promote the ancient Chinese art to supplement other medical regimens, working to activate the body's internal healing mechanisms without sending it through a healer wizardry program. The duo also helps clients with nutritional healing, prescribing carefully formulated diets that promote overall wellness. To complement the diets, they enlist Chinese herbal medicine, using plant- and mineral-derived extracts to fulfill nutritional needs.
The team at Advanced Skin Care & More soothes body and mind with a synergy of ancient techniques and modern technology. Aestheticians with medical or paramedical training precede every facial with a skin analysis and black-light screening, which can detect skin conditions or milk mustaches. After determining the client's unique skincare needs, an aesthetician cleanses and exfoliates with natural and organic products. Some treatments combat signs of aging with infrared or intense pulsed light, microcurrents, and ultrasound. Aside from facials, the day spa offers massage modalities that range from deep tissue to champissage, an Ayurvedic form of head massage that stimulates the scalp and upper body to increase circulation and the ability to wiggle each ear independently.
