At Spa 33, each staff member plays a specific role in the spa’s healing and beautifying disciplines, from custom massages to aesthetics and makeup application. Clients in need of a massage can match their needs with one of four massage therapists, all of whom are identified on the website by their general degree of massage pressure on a scale of 1–10. Using this scale, clients can seek out a therapist who can offer a gliding, gentle massage or one who breaks up muscle knots and tendons in mid-clash. In addition to massages, complexion-beautifying spa services draw from ingredients known to have healing properties, such as pumpkin and European roses. The spa offers extended hours on Thursday and Friday, and appointments can be booked online.
The Eco Chateau team seeks to help the masses at their spa, which fuses luxury and wellness. There, professionals combine modern therapies with ancient spa rituals to unclog stress channels and promote healing. Detox treatments such as juice cleanses, infrared-sauna sessions, and the cheekily named Chanel No. 2 colon hydrotherapy free bodies from invasive toxins and environmental stressors. Massage therapists tame unruly muscles with different massage modalities, including Basalt Stone Therapy Massage, which uses aromatic oils and heated stones to ease deep aches and pains, or Heavenly Massage, which uses long and flowing strokes to soothe and relax. They also offer 10 variations of organic facials and waxing that rids faces of unwanted hair or shapes eyebrows into re-creations of Charlie Chaplin?s mustache.
Named for the Italian word for light, Luce Skincare and Body offers complexion-brightening treatments in a tranquil setting. A duo of licensed aestheticians performs a menu of custom services, including facials designed to combat aging, acne, or the after-effects of falling asleep on corduroy. Massages soothe bodies with the relaxing warmth of hot stones and the strokes of various modalities. Clients can be swaddled in classic body wraps, which pamper frames with moisturizing oils, or don infrared wraps designed to sweat out inches and detoxify.
The technicians at Rapid Results Bodywraps use the highest level of mineral solution to help their clients reduce the appearance of cellulite, tighten lax skin, and fit into an itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny, yellow polka-dot bikini. In addition to their suite of body-wrap services, the team of beauty experts also offer waxing treatments, facials, XpressSmile teeth whitening, and ionic footbaths.
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.

The technicians of Thighs by Design have a simple goal: reduce thighs' circumference and amount of cellulite. Clients choose between three different methods that are designed to help achieve this: Endermologie, infrared jade sauna sessions, and nutrition. A staffer wielding the Endermologie machine passes the instrument over thighs, allowing its mechanical action to stimulate collagen production while helping to shrink fatty tissue. Relaxing inside the warm, red-lit pods of the infrared sauna, bodies lying atop jade beds practice their best Sleeping Beauty or Not Very Talkative Beauty impressions while shedding toxins and inches. Juices in the cleanse program, too, are designed to detoxify while buffing away unwanted limb dimples.
