Before their appointments, clients can sip complimentary chilled water or warm tea. Massage therapists and skincare specialists perform a range of restorative services that include Swedish massages, anti-aging facial peels, waxing, and manicures.
A coffee bar covered in mosaic tile doles out doses of espresso to customers in the waiting area of Prado Spa & Salon.

Former Londoner Vivien Henderson spent four years working on chiropractic patients dealing with pain and dysfunction before she opened the doors to her own massage studio. In addition to modalities such as gentle Swedish massage and therapeutic deep-tissue massage, she practices treatments such as craniosacral therapy, a gentle, powerful light-touch approach that acts through the central nervous system to assist in improving function in the whole body, and hot-basalt-stone massages with essential oils induce relaxation.
Patients rarely expect a medical office where they can meet with their primary-care physician, get a chiropractic adjustment, and round out their visit with a cutting-edge laser or aesthetic treatment. Dr. Angela Vecellio, Dr. Sal Pilato, and Dr. Kimberly Stein made that myth-like destination a reality at Palm Beach Medical, wisely choosing to do so above sea level after the mistakes of Atlantean small-business owners. Dr. Vecellio leads the friendly and multidisciplinary team from her own advanced training in nutrition, pediatrics, and weight loss, addressing physical ailments with chiropractic care and a variety of innovative therapies. Dr. Stein oversees medical treatments, administering flu shots and performing physicals.
In the cosmetic realm, staffers use Neova's DNA Total Repair formula to combat sun damage during facials.

The stylists of Changes Hair Studio think that hair is everyone’s best accessory, and they’ve spent nearly 30 years revamping that accessory with fashion-forward styles.

New and seasoned stylists alike draw from the same lineup of professional salon products, including patented protein formulas from Redken.
