At Amherst Laser and Skin Care Center, aesthetic treatments go beyond ordinary waxing treatments and cleansing facials. Along with these basic offerings, Dr. Robert Weitzman and his dedicated staff use state-of-the-art lasers for a number of treatments, from banishing unwanted hair to spurring hair growth with a futuristic iGrow laser helmet. Other laser treatments include skin rejuvenation, body sculpting, and tattoo removal.

Aestheticians also incorporate natural and holistic elements into a number of treatments designed to nourish the skin and help maintain a refreshed, youthful appearance. During the microdermabrasion treatment, a DiamondTome wand helps remove dead skin cells. The process can promote new skin cell growth and stimulate collagen while treating fine lines, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and more.

Relaxation reigns supreme at Elements Hot Tub Spa, where reprieve from the daily grind awaits in the form of bubbling hot tubs and the masterful hands of fully licensed massage therapists. Behind the doors of five themed areas, the crystal-clear tubs send toasty tides surging across limbs from up to 108 hydrotherapy jets. Inside the Fire room, visitors sink into 104-degree tubs amid warm tones of burnished slate, whereas out in the Air garden, breezes move tree boughs across stucco walls, replicating the gentle rustling synonymous with nature or book-themed scavenger hunts in a library. Stress sapping is also available through trips to the facility's infrared sauna and steam rooms, and through services such as deep-tissue massages, hot-stone treatments, and chocolate facials.

Bodies in Balance's muscle mender, Michael Millner, soothes tightened stress knots with a slew of revitalizing techniques. After a consultation, during which clients can call out specific problem areas or their favorite colors, bodies recline for a 60-minute custom mollycoddling, which targets specific aches and pains. Based in the Swedish circulatory style, each human tenderizing session blends elements of deep-tissue massage, trigger-point therapy, and hydrotherapy into a rejuvenating treatment that helps restore battered meat suits to their former glory. Meanwhile, athletes can reap the healing benefits of a sports massage to promote speedier regeneration from back injuries caused from doing improper handstands instead of defending themselves during boxing matches.

Wilson will then spend the last 20–45 minutes of the session kneading away physical aches and pains through deep-tissue, Swedish, and trigger-point massage techniques.
