Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
Our staffers are highly trained professionals in their field. Our massage therapists offer a multi-modality approach to maximize results. We specialize in therapeutic deep-tissue massage at our office, and offer the pampering that goes along with the spa experience, like hydrating body wraps, customized facials, hot-stone massage, and Swedish massage, to mention a few.
Our aesthetician uses Bio Elements skincare products. With Bio Elements, the aesthetician is able to customize your facial and products to your individual needs and preferences. Bio Elements is made in the USA. The company has been around since the early 1990s and has a good reputation for product purity and effectiveness. No animal testing is involved with their products, either.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
"Your office is so relaxing and comfortable."
"Your massage therapists have changed my life. Without their skillful hands, I would not be able to get through a day, much less two weeks, without pain." (This is true for myself as well. I get weekly massages to be able to maintain an active, relatively pain-free lifestyle at 60-something.)
"I'm so relaxed, I feel like Jell-O after my massage."
"I had no idea how toxic my body was until I had regular massages."
"Your massage therapists have increased the circulation in my hands and feet, and now I can ride my motorcycle for hours at a time again."
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I worked in the chiropractic field for over 25 years. I have worked in the massage field for over 10 years, and I believe in helping people to realize their full potential for a relatively pain-free lifestyle without medication. I, myself, am a walking success story of what a difference taking care of ourselves with regular massage can mean in the quality of our lives. It is for this reason that I have devoted over 35 years to this alternative type of healthcare.
The technicians at Inspiritu Salon build a community around beauty and preserving the environment as they style their clients? hair, smooth their skin, and relax their muscles with Aveda's nature-based products. They trim women's, men's, and children's shaggy ends as botanical hair and scalp-therapy treatments nourish each strand at its root. The gentle strokes of Swedish massage and the targeted pressure of deep-tissue massage loosen tight muscles, with the option of adding warm stones or Simon Says commands to further relax musculature. To refresh facescapes, the aestheticians moisturize and exfoliate skin during the 30-minute facial, and call on essential oils to reduce the appearance of discoloration and dark spots during the Enbrightenment treatment.
While studying hairdressing in the late 1980s at an Aveda salon, Lisa Vann fell in love with the company's products and global ethics. She decided to further her relationship with the beauty business by helping to develop new Aveda haircare lines and traveling the world to demonstrate the brand's products and techniques to other salon professionals. The owner and acclaimed stylist of Milagros Salon Spa has had her work featured in several publications, including Glamour, Marie Claire, and Essence, and received four consecutive nominations for international hairstylist of the year from the Canadian Mirror Awards.
In keeping with Lisa's Aveda upbringing, Milagros's staff performs each salon and spa treatment with botanically derived Aveda products. Stylists brighten strands and fading area rugs using Aveda Full Spectrum hair color blended from 97% natural ingredients. Body treatments—such as the rosemary-mint wrap and sea-salt polish—and custom facials detoxify and balance skin with plant extracts and hydrating creams.
A native of Poland, Celina Lewandowski first moved to the United States in 1991?where, for 12 years, she provided home care for elderly patients suffering from eating disorders and intestinal problems. She eventually discovered colon hydrotherapy, became a certified colon hydrotherapist and endermologie technician, and decided to open her own clinic and use the gentle body-cleansing system to relieve intestinal dysfunction.
At her clinic, European Rejuvenation Center, she helps fight bloating, irritable bowels, constipation, and fatigue with a LIBBE open colon-hydrotherapy system. This system is easy to self-operate and, like a treehouse on the moon, affords clients as much privacy as they desire. Celina also combats toxins with ionic footbaths, nutritional therapy, lipomassage, endermologie, and infrared-sauna sessions.

As owner of Something Sacred Massage, Audra invites clients—male or female—to stop in for a soothing chair or table massage, during which she incorporates any 1 of her 15 massage techniques with anti-inflammatory lotions. However, Audra’s true gift lies with expectant mothers. Trained as a doula, Audra provides moms-to-be with emotional, physical, and informational support before, during, and after childbirth. She offers three doula packages, complete with birth-planning meetings, prenatal massages, breast-feeding fundamentals, and labor support.

Darren Ernst, Progressive Therapeutic Massage’s licensed therapist, boasts more than a decade’s experience working with clients of all ages and fitness levels. What kicked off his career was a realization, while training in the martial arts, that the movement of energy and breath was crucial to achieving a healthy balance of mind and body. Darren facilitates this balance inside of rooms tastefully decorated with plant life and beachscape photography, lifting people up with Swedish and deep-tissue bodywork. He can tailor sessions to address specific injuries, such as a pulled muscle or heckled funny bone, and accelerates anxiety reduction and emotional balance with guided breath work.
