Soft music banishes quotidian concerns at Dr. Nancy's Day Spa, where Dr. Nancy MacDonald clears skin with botanically derived facials and heals clients with chiropractic care. An exfoliating papaya-enzyme peel fuzzes out scars and aging spots, and the one-two punch of a microdermabrasion with mini facial is especially effective on clients with acne-prone skin. The doctor's chiropractic adjustments align spines and rescue pinched nerves so that clients don't have to forage for replacement skeletons in the Neander Valley. Scents of lavender and warm french vanilla waft through the air inside the spa, joining with the purple walls to recall sunny Provençal fields.
Water swirls around a washbasin at Luxe Salon & Spa, draining away Bumble and bumble products from hair as clients rest on comfy reclining seats. Exposed brick walls and hardwood floors surround them, lending the space a loft-like aesthetic, and hanging steel lights illuminate a row of swiveling chairs where stylists set to work. Here, the beauty experts pamper guests with salon services such as color treatments, hair extensions, and blowouts. The salon also offers mani-pedis, waxing treatments, and eyelash extensions that make eyes pop more than rimming them with highlighter.

When Amirah isn't mending muscles, she enjoys such hobbies as cooking, designing clothes, entertaining family and friends, and winning arm-wrestling matches against bronze statues.

Along with massage, clients might enjoy the luxurious chocolate facial, which uses a cacao bean scrub to exfoliate the skin—it's the number one facial in the world according to Willy Wonka.
