La Dermique Skin Rejuvenation & Body Contouring Center’s board-certified surgeons, registered nurses, and master aestheticians keep their fingers on the pulse of emerging technologies they can potentially use in their minimally invasive treatments. Simple aesthetic procedures, such as microdermabrasion and photofacials, rejuvenate dull, aging skin, whereas Botox and dermal fillers temporarily remedy wrinkles for a smooth, supple complexion. Thermilift, one of the center's newer treatments, sends sound waves below the skin’s surface to gently heat tissues and simulate the effects of a face-lift, all without incisions or cheek suspenders. La Dermique’s technicians also wield lasers, including Smartlipo Triplex technology, to permanently destroy fat and remove unwanted body hair and tattoos.

At Agawam Massage & Bodyworks, licensed massage therapists Kristin Held and Nichole Hines join forces to help liberate bodies from chronic pain and promote healing throughout the body. Craniosacral therapy is one of several specialties performed inside the duo's warm, private treatment rooms, relying on gentle pressure to stimulate the flow of cerebrospinal fluid throughout the spine, ease restricted nerve passages, and realign bones. The team can also relax bodies with traditional Swedish massages, release chronic tension with deep-tissue massages, and keep tight muscles from being swept away by the wind during hot-stone massages.
Sounds of breaking waves mingle with the crackling of a fireplace in this ocean-themed studio that owner Veronique Clement turned into an idyllic haven for massage. The licensed massage therapist rubs the skin with organic oils, and soothes tension and stress with a primary focus on light and medium strokes. Her nine massage services include cold stone, aromatherapy, and bamboo massage. She also offers refreshments and snacks such as gourmet tea and chocolate.
While studying at the Bancroft School of Massage Therapy, Laurie Tulloch amassed more than 800 hours of massage training. In addition to her formal education, Tulloch boasts more than a decade's worth of professional experience in the field. At her eponymous bodywork studio, Tulloch practices six main massage types: sports, cancer/oncology, chair, deep tissue, pregnancy, and Swedish. In sessions that range from 30 to 120 minutes, Tulloch can relieve joint pain, increase mental clarity, or play relaxing harp music on taut muscle fibers.
The term "cyber hair" might conjure up images of CGI locks, but the material is actually an incredibly lifelike hair substitute that acts like normal hair. It's among the many options hair professionals and staff at Ambiance HR and Laser Center give clients seeking a nonsurgical means of treating hair loss. In addition to its hair-cultivating prowess, the team uses laser technology to eradicate unwanted fuzz, age spots, acne scars, spider veins, and bank-vault locks. Ambiance’s aestheticians also offer laser-aided facials and rejuvenating chemical peels, along with old-fashioned hot-stone facials.
