The aestheticians at The Havens Spa trust the body's ability to heal itself—but a helping hand from time to time doesn't hurt. With that in mind, they design their treatments to engender a holistic well-being and to reawaken those natural healing mechanisms. Whether guests stop by for a body wrap or a radio-frequency-based sculpting treatment, they learn about how their physical make up can effect their moods, behaviors, and motivations. Then, once a basic understanding of cause and effect is established, change for betterment can begin.
In The Havens' red-roofed hacienda, an onsite fitness center with personal trainers helps newly purified patrons keep their bodies in top shape. Those looking to banish stress can avail themselves of tension-melting massage, including gentle Swedish and energetic Thai, while those seeking rejuvenation can draw from a list of facials and beauty injections. And to add a touch of natural calm to any treatment, the spa's surrounding 13 acres provides a place where patrons can rest in the shade, soak in some sunshine, and remember their lawn-dart victories of yesteryear.

After reclining across the massage table for more than 30 years as a client, Angela Lopez realized the difference a quality massage therapist could make. So, she embarked on the journey of opening her own spa by hiring the best therapists she could find. Angela and her team of ?angels? at An Angel?s Touch Therapeutic Massage were voted in the top three for Best Massage in the DFW metroplex in 2010 and 2011, and tops in Fort Worth, according to CityVoter. Within their relaxation oasis, the team dissipates stress and assuages muscle aches with massage treatments that range from long, fluid Swedish strokes to deep-tissue kneads, and they take relaxation a step further with indulgent add-ons such as aromatherapy.
Three charming rooms set the scene for massages at An Angel's Touch, and each one is infiltrated by the soothing scent of a soy candle and calming music. In the tradition-inspired room, crisp white walls wrap around a heated massage table draped with a soft blanket, and a second room takes on an Asian motif, complete with garden-green hues and natural-wood accents. The European-influenced room assumes a regal stance, with deep-purple textiles draping over the massage table and the windows. After their treatments, clients can slowly work their way back into real life with a bite of complimentary chocolate.
The white tulip chairs, sleek charcoal and orange décor, and recessed lighting may give Wink Threading Salon a modern feel, but their specialty service is rooted in tradition. Instead of relying on harsh wax, chemicals, or duct tape, the hair removal experts reach for a simple length of antibacterial thread. By twisting the threads together and sweeping them across the skin, the stylists are able to swiftly and precisely uproot stray hairs, creating smooth, sure lines on the brows, upper lip, chin, or forehead. A writer for D Magazine in the feature "The Best Eyebrow Job I've Ever Had" called Wink’s threadong process "less painful…than wax" and "less tedious than tweezing," and even claimed that afterwards she was so pleased that she "could [not] stop looking at [her brows] in the rearview mirror."
