Laura Urquhart grew up in a spa. Spa treatments were the family business, and as a young child Laura absorbed her parents' dedication to beauty and appreciation for relaxation as a crucial component of happy lives. As an adult, Laura worked to become a licensed massage therapist and aesthetician, opening Mango Bliss Spa to share her passion. Her retreat's menu is populated with treatments that she personally designed, from massages that melt tension with hot seashells to Aquabrasion facials that lift bacteria from pores with ultrasound technology. She infuses each service with organic products and offers add-ons, including her specialty, aromatherapy, to augment the sensory effect of each service more pleasantly than equipping treatment rooms with velcro sheets.

Spa Sydell traces its roots back to 1982, when its flagship spa opened under the moniker of Sydell Skin Care Salon. A spike in popularity led the spa to change its name to the leaner Spa Sydell and expand to seven locations. Today, the spa’s experts form a team of licensed skincare professionals and massage therapists, all of whom must pass intense training processes in the spa's signature techniques. Dr. Tara Margarella and Dr. Herb Kollinger are skilled in advanced injection techniques and work alongside nurse Cheryl Gillis to help perfect the latest aesthetic and cosmetic treatments, using only US FDA approved products.
With natural and organic products like REN, the friendly, client-focused staffers at Illuminations Spa work to bestow guests with glowing complexions and relaxed demeanors without using harsh or harmful substances. Chemical-free lotions and soothing aromatherapy enhance seven types of massages, each customized to fit a client’s particular issue, whether that’s sore muscles or deep-set knots. An organic neroli-and-grapefruit cream with an exfoliating guérande salt balm lays the foundation for one of more than five body treatments, and face treatments fight signs of aging by firming the skin with acupressure and lymphatic-drainage-massage techniques.
