Instead of going to daycare when she was a little girl, Tatyana went to cosmetology school. Technically, her mother was enrolled in the classes, but Tatyana would tag along, thus beginning her first courses in her informal beauty education. Since then, her knowledge has only grown, what with working at a college of beauty, helping helm operations at a Beverly Hills skincare line, and continuing to learn through regular classes, world travel, and brain osmosis.
During her career in the industry, Tatyana has kept a philosophy that fuses Western technology with Eastern philosophy. It's a credo that views the spa not as a luxury but as a way of life, a preventive therapy meant to inspire an embrace of health. At her spa, Tatyana nurtures this idea with skincare services such as microdermabrasion and peels, body treatments such as sugar and salt polishing, and facial treatments that cleanse and exfoliate the skin that no longer serves you. Éminence Organics skincare products, Jane Iredale makeup, and other premium products line the spa's shelves, waiting patiently for a loving home.
The instructors at Balera Fitness Studio assure future pole-dancing students that, although they will be engaging in a style of dance that’s known for its come-hither maneuvers, "Nothing comes off but your shoes!" That's because they hone in on the unique fitness aspects of pole dancing, guiding students through exhilarating spins and limbering stretches that improve strength, balance, and flexibility. They welcome students of all ages and body types to their fun, sweat-manufacturing workouts. At private parties, they teach core-firming moves to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays, future marriages, and Stop Sign Impersonation Day.
Licensed massage therapist Debra McCown believes that massage is more than just bodywork: it's about making the client feel as comfortable as possible. That's why she holds a pretreatment consultation to determine the source of lingering stress and customize her many bodywork techniques. Debra also urges clients to use her specialty body cushions during treatment. Not only do these specialty pillows insure an ideal resting position to prevent backache, they're easily adjustable for men, women, and scarecrows of all body sizes.

Beautologie is a leader in cosmetic surgery, lasers, fillers, and minimally invasive cosmetic treatments.
Voted Best In Bakersfield 4 years in a row, Beautologie prides itself on doing everything possible to make every customer feel cared for, safe, and happy with their results.
One of Bakersfield's largest day spas, Essentiels Spa et Beauté offers clients an array of services targeting the hair, skin, nails, and muscles. Turn your torso over to one of the spa's lead kneaders for a fully customized hour of integrative massage, which can incorporate hot stones, focus on particular regions of your body, or otherwise tailor itself to your wants, needs, and muscular event horizons. Those who mostly hold tension in their face can opt instead for a 60-minute European-style Essentiels signature facial, a multifaceted pamper party that leaves necks and shoulders rubbed, hands and feet coddled, and cranial facades soft, smooth, and glowing with the sort of radiance impossible to achieve through glow-stick earrings. Essentiels complements its satisfying services with the ambient assets of an urban-chic environment, giving guests an elegant escape from the frenetic pace and gauche mimes of everyday life.
Three Bakersfield.com reviewers give La Petit Poulette a perfect five-star rating. Four SpaFinder reviewers give the spa an average rating of 4.5 stars, and two Yahoo! Locals give it a perfect five stars:
Twisteez Salon & Supply outfits hair in the latest head-flattering fashions with a plethora of professional styling and texturizing services. A Keratin Complex treatment rids locks of curly-fried frizz for up to three–five months. Developed by an experienced stylist, the specially formulated smoothing system rebuilds, restores, and rejuvenates unstable strands. After the two- to three-hour session, manes emerge easier to dry and style, and less likely to crinkle and curl during strolls through humid rainstorms or car washes.
Terrio Therapy-Fitness, a physical-therapy and fitness center, constantly looks to its mantra, “there has to be a better way,” when helping patients and the local community deal with problems. That’s why it creates custom therapy and fitness programs, why it developed two pediatric centers that cater to children with disabilities, and why it has expanded from one small outpatient clinic to 12 clinics throughout the area with 35 physical, occupational, and speech therapists.
Though the staff primarily cater to sports injuries, the range of services has evolved to treat both adults and kids with a variety of therapies, such as occupational and speech therapy, teaching kids and adults how to deal with pain or say “my name is Sharon” in Esperanto. The centers’ fitness facilities build muscles through group classes such as Pilates, fencing, and sports-specific skills training, and personal-training sessions provide one-on-one workouts with exercise gurus such as Steve Sobonya, who has trained Olympic gold-medal winners. In order to further aid in weight loss, Terrio Therapy-Fitness’s nutrition experts offer metabolic testing and personal consultations to discuss nutrition goals and why eating bacon for every meal and snack is a bad idea.
The body is always subject to stresses such as work, family, and your jerk roommate's rubber-band gun. That's where Regina "Gina" Nathan comes in. With 15 years of experience as a licensed massage therapist and 9 as a reiki master, she cultivates a calm, soothing environment that helps her clients leave stress and worries behind. Drawing on more than 900 hours of holistic healing education,
she makes it her mission to untie tight muscular knots and promote wellness of the mind and body. During massages, she can administer light strokes to promote relaxation or access lower-layer aches with more moderate techniques. One of the first therapists in Bakersfield to become certified as a practitioner and instructor of Quantum Touch, she also uses energy-healing techniques to stimulate the body's immune system, reduce back pain, and promote balance within the body.
Founded with the goal of outfitting its pupils with the skills necessary to excel in the spa and salon industries, Milan Institute of Cosmetology deploys a rigorous curriculum that emphasizes professionalism and hands-on learning to train fledgling cosmetologists and aestheticians around the country. As the most important aspect of the course of study, student salons and spas serve as a real-world classroom wherein nascent beauticians—under the careful supervision of their instructors—can practice their newly minted skills on humans or sentient mannequins. The beauty apprentices gussy up patrons head to toe via sundry lavish salon and spa services—specific to each location—that may include nail services, haircare, facials therapeutic massages, or nourishing body wraps.
With 15 years of experience guiding her, co-owner-therapist Joy Staley and her team of therapists continue to help their clients experience the therapeutic and holistic benefits of massage. Besides the typical Swedish and deep-tissue massage, they also specialize in pressure-point and sports massage techniques. Every massage also comes with moist heat packs, to hydrate and increase circulation, and steamed towels to remove excess essential oils. Using whichever specialized modality best suits their client, they aim to reduce the lymph build-up and inflammation that blocks blood flow, causes muscular pain, and induces people to spontaneously do the worm. They work in a room with sand-colored walls and sumptuous curtains the color of red wine, keeping the lights dim to foster relaxation.
At Premier Massage & Spa, Robert Miko gives the ancient practice of acupuncture a 21st-century update. Using the computerized AcuGraph 4, he assesses the status of each body's meridians before applying fine needles the old-fashioned way. When it comes to massage, however, Miko and his highly trained staff stick to the classic approach. Available for individual or couples sessions, Premier's massage therapists relieve achy muscles and knead away knots with mixtures of slow Swedish strokes and deep-tissue techniques. For a soothing finale, try Steamy Wonder, a layer of body mud or polish packed with detoxifying herbs.
Like a gorgon who only wants a friend to join her staring contest, certified and licensed massage therapist James "Dragon" Colley—who goes by the nickname "Dragon"—is the friendliest sort of beast.

This solo-performing certified and licensed massage therapist relieves ailments such as muscle soreness, back pain, stress, and headaches. James also incorporates several hands-on methods, including Swedish massage, deep-tissue massage, and Reiki. Additionally, he enhances the effects of his treatments by employing acupressure and shiatsu techniques whenever necessary.
Privato Salon & Spa is filled with sleek, modern decor, from plush leather chairs to long wooden tables, highlighted by pops of green and purple. Amiee's nail services mirror the salon's lustrous, contemporary atmosphere.

Hands and fingers aren't left out, either. After shaping, trimming, and buffing them, Amiee decorates digits with vibrant lacquer from butter London or chip-free polish from Gelish.
