The son of holistic healer and physical therapy pioneer Edward A Snapp, Jr., James Snapp LMT is on his own mission to help others find relief from pain and neurological conditions. Trained in the art of Swedish, deep-tissue, and cross-fiber massage, among others, he puts bodies back into balance and drives stress from taxed minds, calling upon additional services such as aromatherapy and Thai yoga to help set patients at ease. But massage isn't the only tool at Snapp's disposal: his office also boasts a hydrotherapy tank, where warm water saturated with Epsom salts allows patients to float effortlessly. The experience is somewhat likened to resting in a hot tub, only without the noisy jets, harmful chlorine, and sharks. For those who prefer to stay on dry land, BioMat treatments use far infrared heat and amethyst crystals to stimulate the production of negative ions, which can help induce deep relaxation and bring relief of everything from migraines to troubled sleep patterns.

Each tonal transformation is delivered with the graceful touch of experienced resident airbrusher, Sherene. Using premium Mystic airbrushes, Sherene propels a fine cloud of bronzer and tanning solution through the air, which lands lovingly onto skin and makes quick BFFs with local freckles.

A trio of sessions with Sherene ensures that you'll remain body-burnished for a good, long while. And for $20 more per visit ($10 if you buy an airbrush spray package), you can upgrade to a soothing, natural body exfoliation before your airbrush, during which you'll be rubbed down with an invigorating spearmint sugar scrub, rinsed with warm water, and lovingly dried with a soft towel.
