Try out the state-of-the-art facial technology at Pure Aesthetica, like the DiamondTome resurfacing system, which will leave your skin healthier and more vibrant. Beauty is also in the details here, like the cool cinnamon water you will be offered when you arrive and fresh-squeezed tangerine juice before you leave.
Sometimes it takes more than medication to heal. That?s why acupuncturist Linda Wentz founded Holistic Touch Center and its mission to help hasten the healing process by offering services that extend beyond the body to incorporate the needs of the mind and spirit. There, Silvy Franco and Shawn Marie Miller, the center's holistic estheticians, blend years of skin care experience with training in natural health and energy medicine to produce treatments that restore the body while rebalancing the mind and spirit. They read each client's skin like a map, plotting out appropriate treatment courses that are delivered as part of one of the center's rituals, which include components ranging from traditional facials and detoxifying peels to Vitamin C infusions and cold stone massages. In addition to performing these rituals, Silvy and Shawn also help clients adapt these treatments for use in at-home skin care regimens, keeping epidermises glowing and well-adjusted to changes in seasonal weather.

Massages at Jetaun's Massage Therapy are custom tailored to meet the needs of any sore back or tense shoulder. The licensed practitioners run down a playbook full of deep-tissue, sports, and hot-stone massage techniques that they blend and manipulate to address their clients' specific injuries and areas of discomfort.

After clients depart their tabletop havens, they can purchase candles, oils, and massage music that will turn any bedroom or crowded elevator into an oasis of tranquility.
On the window-lined second floor of a quaint, historical brick building, certified massage therapist Deborah O'Baugh whisks away corporeal tension with her extensive repertoire of relaxing therapies.

Master aesthetician Maria Conde rarely encounters a pair of legs that she can't make as smooth as silk, or a pair of eyebrows that she can't shape into elegant arches. The hair-removal expert specializes in swift waxing and sugaring treatments for women as well as for men. But that's not all she offers at Maria Body Image Studio. Conde also cleanses pores with exfoliating facials and promotes detoxification with mineral body wraps. Her eyelash extensions add length and volume for weeks on end, staying in place until they fall out naturally or are plucked for an emergency wish.
