If you've ever lived in a lavish mansion in the Hollywood Hills, then you'll probably feel right at home at Estique Spa. The chic confines are both homey and luxurious: think modern white couches, chandeliers, fabric-swathed ceilings, and a roaring fireplace. With surrounds such as this, clients might feel pampered enough just sitting in the waiting room. But in reality, the royal treatment has only begun—inside the pedicure room, sunken soaking bowls sit at the base of leather club chairs, which guests can relax into as the nail artists revive their tired feet with tropical sugar scrubs, healing mud masks, and warm paraffin wax. Meanwhile, in the aptly named foot room, ergonomic chaise lounge chairs melt tension throughout the body, allowing a massage therapist to concentrate on kneading away stress and tension from the feet. Facials leave skin feeling soft and supple thanks to special products and treatments by Skin Nova Technology, while skin residing below-the-neck gets help from rich body treatments that incorporate coconut oil, papaya scrubs, and even chocolate.
Estique Spa firmly believes that everyone deserves to be pampered. And so, once a month, the staff invites women from a local shelter to enjoy a day at the spa. And, to give back to the local community, they also offer the same treatments once a year to the city’s police officers, firemen, and contortionists, who may need a break from the physical and stressful demands of their jobs.
