Registered nurse and massage therapist Samantha Moeller created Wholistic Health, The Wellness Spa with a vision of integrating traditional Western medicine with complementary wellness therapies. Originally located at the New London Family Medical Center, whose staff has worked closely with Moeller, Wholistic Health expanded to its current South Pearl Street location in 2004. Services include massage therapy, skincare, and weight-loss classes, along with permanent cosmetics and body waxing.
Helmed by certified physician Richard Parfitt, AestheticA Skin Health Center staffs a squad of experienced medical professionals all skilled at the art of hair eradication using the concentrated heat of a high-power Intense Pulsed Light laser. IPL is known to reduce hair in a virtually pain-free procedure that some have said is less painful than waxing or whittling with a dull stick. The included initial consultation (a $30 value) takes about 30 minutes, with the procedure itself lasting roughly 15 to 30 minutes per session. AestheticA's experienced, licensed staff will do its best to make customers feel comfortable in a relaxing spa-like environment. Laser therapy can ensure a relentlessly smooth surface that won't compromise times at the human-dolphin relay leg of the upcoming swim meet.
Licensed aesthetician Mathilda knows what it's like to have her work under scrutiny. Before opening skinSparations, she worked with contestants in Miss Korea and Miss Canada beauty pageants. Now, the certified sugarist offers sugaring and waxing services in a quiet room located inside Tanglz Salon & Spa. She also performs body and facial treatments.
