Dr. Ramin Samadi, who has been awarded the prestigious Fellow status from the American College of Emergency Medicine and the American College of Physicians, began his career as an emergency-medicine specialist in 1988 in Buffalo, New York. In just two short years, he was promoted to the position of medical director in the department, and a few years after that he became the chairman of the department of emergency medicine for Mercy Health System. He is also an expert in anti-aging skincare, and after moving to Fort Worth, he decided to open Artisan MedSpa in order to provide patients medical-grade spa services in a relaxing environment completely different than the cold, sterile, alligator-friendly hospital setting he was used to.
Patients at the spa can don plush robes and slippers in the locker room before heading to the relaxation room to unwind while sipping complimentary beverages and savoring sweet fruit. The full-service med spa further pampers patrons with various massages, body scrubs, and luxurious 23-karat-gold facials. For those interested in medical-grade services, the spa proffers hair removal, skin resurfacing, and body sculpting.

With more than 12 years of experience, massage therapist Linda Little knows that sometimes hands alone aren’t enough for a good massage.

Upon request, Linda also places smooth, warm river rocks onto muscle knots, softening them with steady waves of heat before kneading them into sweet submission.
