Sole2Soul Bodywork's licensed massage therapist, Mike Greenfield, knows that it's harder to fix an injured body than it is to develop a healthy one. He learned that while working for more than five years in a health-and-fitness center and through his own certification in personal training. Mike sees his massage work as integral to his clients' overall health and well-being, whether he is helping to prevent injuries with a postgame sports massage or detoxify the body with lymphatic-drainage techniques. In addition to these and several other modalities, Mike also administers doctor-prescribed medical massages, which can help alleviate soft-tissue injuries as an alternative to medication or wearing a suit made entirely of Icy Hot.
The staff at Spa Vargas Wellness pampers bodies and minds with luxurious spa services that deploy the spa's own line of naturally sourced products. Moving to their new location, the team at the Pheasant Run Resort outfits clients with cozy robes and slippers before inviting them to relax in an aromatherapy waiting room, which is more fragrant than a dessert buffet at Strawberry Shortcake's house. Nimble hands can exfoliate skin with a sea-salt or mud scrub, and the spacious Moroccan-style Vichy shower rejuvenates skin during hydrotherapy treatments. The calm-inducing crew passes on kneading know-how to up-and-coming massage therapists and play-doh sculptors at Spa Vargas University.
A waiting area like a fine parlor⎯complete with soft leather furniture, honey-hued hardwood floors, and a vase of flowers perched atop a coffee table⎯welcomes guests into the specialized laser spa. During Laser l'Amour's signature hair-removal treatments, Dr. Margaret Sierantowicz wields Palomar StarLux lasers to free skin of unwanted fuzz with minimal discomfort and no downtime. Clients strut from treatment rooms after gaining a boost in confidence for beach season or an aerodynamic advantage for human-cannonball-school-admissions season. The staff also administer laser-free microdermabrasions and peels designed to leave skin softer, smoother, and scarless.
Shizoku Skin is two things: a spa specializing in natural skincare treatments and a skincare product line created by licensed aesthetician Ann Usman. Usman, whose decade of experience includes working alongside top dermatologists and plastic surgeons, battles skin issues such as rosacea, acne, and sun damage with her line of all-natural, organic products. The products deliver antioxidants and enzymes deep into the skin via her patented liposome technology, resulting in clearer, radiant faces.
At her spa, she uses these products during a variety of skin-rejuvenation services, including a custom facial enhanced with powder boosters, a pore-purifying facial with high-frequency therapy, and crystal-free BioBrasion microdermabrasion treatments with lymphatic drainage. Usman also specializes in hair removal—both waxing and IPL—to ready bodies for bathing-suit season or nude-modeling-for-art-class season.
Licensed aesthetician Amber Barnett can cleanse pores with facial treatments and gently whisk away blemishes using chemical exfoliation. As a member of the Associated Skin Care Professionals, she keeps up to date on the latest techniques for keeping the skin looking youthful and less likely to sprout dandelions. When she isn't laying a foundation for healthy skin, Amber dresses it up with airbrush makeup treatments.
