Katerina Mathias aims to show each client their true potential. She uses chemical peels, diamond microdermabrasion, and other skin care therapies to bring out the best in each person's skin. She also uses professional skin care products, as well as organic, custom-made masks and oils. Clients leave her spa with glowing complexion, nourished skin, and clear pores.
But what qualifies Katerina as a skincare expert? The answer is twofold, spanning both formal and personal experience. First, she earned a bachelor's degree in organic chemistry, receiving institutional confirmation of her enzymatic and molecular know-how. Next, after moving from Russia to the United States, Katerina became a mother. And although it was the textbooks that imparted stats about cells and atoms, it was her long hours as a new mom that drove home the need for quality self-care. "As a woman and a mother, I know it is not easy to break free and love yourself," she explains, "but once it happens, it starts a chain reaction that improves all aspects of life."

As an aesthetician and cosmetician with more than three decades of experience, Isabel Aviles knows which products to use to bring out the best in her clients’ skin.

The epidermal experts at Sun of A Beach Tanning cover bodies in sun-kissed shades with a wide range of sunless systems, beds, and tanning products, proving there are easier ways to get a tan than replacing your bed with a pile of flashlights or letting the sun bear-hug you. Develop a head turning-tint in the Sun Capsule Eclipse stand-up bed, its seven-minute treatment time rendering it ideal for quick touchups during lunch breaks or right before parties demanding you to dress as your favorite bronze currency. For a UV-free tan, Sun of a Beach's expert certified airbrush technicians coat hides in Norvell sunless products. The studio then helps clients maintain their golden hues with an airbrush kit, which includes pre-tan body scrub and a cleansing body wash alongside a color-extending moisturizer to ensure that your tan doesn't fade prematurely. Airbrush sessions require reservations, so call ahead for an appointment.
Trained massage therapist Deborah Carter uses her more than 25 years of experience to customize massages for each client using an array of modalities. She aims to help heal and relax the client using everything from traditional Swedish strokes to the firmer kneads of a Russian sports massage. Carter is also trained in the Vodder Method of manual lymph drainage, which she relies on to detoxify the body of impurities and excess water being stored in buckets on the knees.
Carter performs these relaxing sessions at Townsend and Company Salon and Spa, where wood-covered ceilings and exposed-brick walls give the modern salon an organic feel, and the dimly lit treatment rooms create a cocoon of comfort for clients to recharge or molt away their caterpillar shell.
