It might help to practice your best nonchalant face before you set foot in this Bliss Spa. Its not unusual to see an A-list actress or a famous palm tree on the premises, which sprawls across 7,000 square feet at the W Hollywood. Stars flock here for good reasons, too; here are four that we're fond of:
1. The triple oxygen facial makes normal air look bad.
During this facial, aestheticians ply skin with three sources of oxygen, including an oxygen wrap and a vitamin-infused oxygen spray. Purer than the air people come in contact with every day, this oxygen—along with a peel and an enzyme pack—rejuvenates skin, leaving it youthful and glowing.
2. The nail stations are also movie theaters.
Each one has a view of a movie screen, a fitting touch for a spa located a stone's throw from Hollywood. That means visitors can watch the latest releases during treatments from citrus-scented pedicures to polish-free "manly-cures."
3. There's a brownie buffet.
4. You can get a poolside massage.
In addition to other spa amenities and discounts, W Hotel guests enjoy the most decadent perk of all: Blissages by the hotel's azure pool. These relaxing kneads come with a paraffin foot treatment, and, if you're lucky, an extra side of sunshine.
In-Spiraling Movement Arts' co-director Lisa Marie Goodwin-Rice first became intrigued by the Gyrotonic Expansion System while she was dancing for companies such as LA Classical Ballet. Today, she shares her knowledge with students as one of only 16 Gyrotonic Expansion System master trainers throughout the world. Her spouse and directing partner, degreed biologist Jessie Rice, shares her interest in dance and also brings a scientific expertise in physical health.
In Gyrotonic classes, students stretch and twist with the help of pulleys, platforms, and an ape throwing barrels. The exercise style takes inspiration from sources as diverse as dance, gymnastics, and tai chi. The smooth motions of the machines used in the class minimize the risk of injury. Gyrokinesis classes combine the same undulating movements and sources of inspiration as Gyrotonics, but require no equipment other than a floor mat.
In-Spiraling Movement Arts' spa treatments promote wellness with ingredients such as Arnica Gold, a product of Jessie's own invention that causes pores to cry "Eureka!" Body wraps with the minerals of organic moor mud smooth cellulite deposits and slim the physique. The spa's infrared sauna raises internal temperatures and stimulates blood flow to improve the condition of skin and facilitate oxygen distribution.
Before Art Stone was head of Total Woman Gym & Spa, he ran a chain of salons. His female clientele loved their custom cuts, but California had no shortage of stylists—what they really struggled to find was day-spa pampering and weight-loss assistance, all in one spot. Stone listened, and in 1965, created precisely the sanctuary they were looking for.

Grotto de Sal was the product of necessity—and pain. When Elias Amkie was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, his suffering was so great that he almost completely lost the ability to walk. Painkillers did little to help and all the other treatments that Western medicine was willing to offer had dangerous side effects. So Elias looked elsewhere. After an uncomfortable plane ride to Israel he finally found relief while floating in the Dead Sea, where the salt- and mineral-rich waters allow swimmers to experience a sense of weightlessness.
Determined to bring those healing properties back home, Elias founded Grotto de Sal, a wellness center that focuses on holistic treatments such as salt scrubs, mud wraps, massages, and, of course, its signature service: Dead Sea salt floats. Thanks to an infusion of imported minerals and salts, the center's float tanks mimic the properties of the Dead Sea and help reduce pain and inflammation, while encouraging bodies to heal in a way they usually can't under the force of gravity.
