Bella is a woman of many passions. At her studio, she combines her love of bodywork, music, dance, fine arts, and yoga, all in an effort to lead her clients to inner and outer peace. She administers Swedish massages and reiki treatments, and specializes in Thai massages with stretch techniques, which work to increase flexibility. Bella also uses heated stones and aromatherapy to enhance relaxation. Her one-on-one and partner yoga classes improve posture and flexibility. She also sells her own artwork, and teaches private painting classes.
The yoga studio at The Bee Well Boutique & Spa is probably much different from what students are accustomed to. More living room than studio, the space features bright-white wainscoting, decorative mirrors and clocks, and even a fireplace. This quirky setting makes for a comfortable, welcoming environment where students of all levels can work through yoga poses and breathing exercises.
The homey ambiance extends throughout the rest of the space, where aestheticians conduct a variety of facials in private treatment rooms. Post-facial, clients can opt for a sunless tan, or peruse the varied massage menu. On the boutique side, accessories and locally made beauty products occupy shelves, and patrons can even rent out the unique space for private events such as bridal showers and birthday parties.

Andria, the owner and massage therapist of Inner Peace Healing, believes that every form of massage has its value. Whether it's a Swedish massage that gently relieves tension or a reiki session that balances the body's energies, the benefits of professional bodywork are tangible.
Andria's goal as a therapist is to raise the public's awareness of these benefits, one massage at a time. She specializes in a wide variety of modalities, ranging from neuromuscular therapy to sports massage. Regardless of which style she practices, her clients tend to appreciate the outcome. Talk with her before scheduling a treatment to discuss which techniques are best for preventing injury, managing pain, or finding out if you're still ticklish.
At Skin Solutions Staten Island, the main focus is, of course, skin, and a team of aestheticians works to clear it of the many epidermal issues that can plague it. Some techniques are more advanced, including an extensive array of laser services that treat anything from age spots and acne to spider veins and loss of elasticity. There are cellulite treatments, too, as well as Botox injections and permanent-makeup applications.
More traditional therapies include several types of facials, such as glycolic peels and deep-pore cleansing. Body treatments nourish the skin with seaweed wraps or honey-almond scrubs, and massage therapy relaxes muscles with Swedish, hot-stone, or reflexology sessions.
The staff at White Pearl Body Work & Foot Spa makes sure that clients leave the massage studio relaxed from head to toe. The bodywork specialists administer long, flowing Swedish strokes as well as firm, deep-tissue kneads, shiatsu pressure, and muscle-melting hot stones during their massages. White Pearl pays special attention to extremities as well with its foot-reflexology massages.
GreenStone Spa’s four therapists infuse organic products and Eastern therapies into treatments that yield whole-body rejuvenation. Calling upon the curative properties of copper and sulfur, aestheticians administer hydrating and deep-cleansing facials that balance skin tone. Massage therapists tackle the muscular system with 11 modalities including Swedish and deep tissue. During the Sticks and Stones massage, they heat muscles and soften areas of concentrated tension with warmed stones and bamboo sticks. In the spa's gift shop, beauty professionals equip patrons with aromatherapy gifts and body products to remind them of the chronic ache that got away.
