A Natural Balancing Act

Using organic treatments and products, the Aris Institute (Westlake Village, CA) focuses on balancing nature's life energies to create well-being from the inside out. The spa offers a unique system of treatments created at the Institute for Bioinformation in Zurich, Switzerland, which incorporates energy from various plants and minerals and uses it to encourage harmony within the body. Treatments, such as Bioptron Light Therapy, used during the Aris Signature Facial ($120, 50 minutes; $180, 80 minutes), and Color Spectacle Therapy ($45, 15 minutes) harness the natural healing properties of light and color. Corresponding Life Resonance skincare products, available in the U.S. only through the Aris Institute, contain all-natural ingredients and bioactivated plant extracts and essential oils.
