Dr. Lucia McNabb expertly enhances faces, smoothes skin, and beautifies bodies with an arsenal of aesthetic technology at Sorgente. Unwanted follicular outcroppings can be expertly diminished with laser hair removal, which, like a laser pointer, efficiently focuses on its target and is disruptive if applied in high-school classrooms. The laser uses an intense pulsed light to target the pigment in each bristle and reveal more fuzz-free skin within the first 2–3 treatments without requiring any downtime.
Like the staff-designed folk art and jewelry displayed in its boutique, the spa services at Studio 137 Salon are informed by a unique artistic vision. During each beauty treatment, staffers channel their aesthetic savvy through each client's personal style to craft an image that befits its wearer. Hairstylists' sensibilities overflow into everything from simple haircuts to full cut, style, color, and retexturizing overhauls. Aestheticians brush away blemishes and skin imperfections with the help of pharmaceutical-grade Pharmagel products, and mani-pedis complete head-to-toe beauty transformations with OPI polish. In addition, full-body massages soothe sore muscles with Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal techniques that untie knots quicker than shouting "Fire!" during a game of Twister.
The Dharma Connection's warm-hued studio space looks out onto the graceful tree limbs of the nearby woods, inspiring students to bend, stretch, and reach through a diverse schedule of yoga classes. Instructors accommodate students of all skill levels by ensuring each pupil gets individual attention and hands-on assistance during sessions, guiding attendees toward correct form and alignment as they develop the stamina, flexibility, and hokey-pokey skills that accompany regular yoga practice. Challenging Vinyasa Flow classes help more experienced students channel their inner power into a kinetic sequence of fluid transitions, engaging muscles and connective tissues alike as cleansing body heat helps purge toxins through sweat. Mindful attention to physical alignment and mental long division characterize Hatha Yoga sessions, where instructors usher students through a more meditative posture series that emphasizes breath awareness. Alternately, Pilates classes target the abdominals with an invigorating regimen of exercises intended to chisel slender, toned musculature without adding the bulk caused by arm wrestling neighborhood gorillas.
The beauticians at Miss Mary Cosmetics & Day Spa perform facials, waxes, nail treatments, and lash-extension applications.

Sundry waxing treatments for the face and body remove unwanted hair, a great way to prep for the beach or develop empathy for eggs.
