At Premier Massage & Spa, Robert Miko gives the ancient practice of acupuncture a 21st-century update. Using the computerized AcuGraph 4, he assesses the status of each body's meridians before applying fine needles the old-fashioned way. When it comes to massage, however, Miko and his highly trained staff stick to the classic approach. Available for individual or couples sessions, Premier's massage therapists relieve achy muscles and knead away knots with mixtures of slow Swedish strokes and deep-tissue techniques. For a soothing finale, try Steamy Wonder, a layer of body mud or polish packed with detoxifying herbs.

This solo-performing certified and licensed massage therapist relieves ailments such as muscle soreness, back pain, stress, and headaches.

Instead of going to daycare when she was a little girl, Tatyana went to cosmetology school. Technically, her mother was enrolled in the classes, but Tatyana would tag along, thus beginning her first courses in her informal beauty education. Since then, her knowledge has only grown, what with working at a college of beauty, helping helm operations at a Beverly Hills skincare line, and continuing to learn through regular classes, world travel, and brain osmosis.
During her career in the industry, Tatyana has kept a philosophy that fuses Western technology with Eastern philosophy. It's a credo that views the spa not as a luxury but as a way of life, a preventive therapy meant to inspire an embrace of health. At her spa, Tatyana nurtures this idea with skincare services such as microdermabrasion and peels, body treatments such as sugar and salt polishing, and facial treatments that cleanse and exfoliate the skin that no longer serves you. Éminence Organics skincare products, Jane Iredale makeup, and other premium products line the spa's shelves, waiting patiently for a loving home.
