When owner Giovanni Finocchiaro picked up the phone at Face It Spa, he heard one of his clients sobbing. She had been preparing for a presentation at work, and in the process, her skin had broken out so badly that Finocchiaro recalls her lamenting, "I just can't do it. I have to see you." Finocchiaro, who once dreamed of being a counselor, told her to come in immediately. "When you help people look better on the outside, it really does make them feel better inward, too," he says. When his distraught client arrived, he tailored a peel for her sensitive skin that helped kill bacteria and calm inflammation. Within a few days, he says, "she couldn't believe … how [her complexion] was already turning around."

Inside his recently remodeled boutique, Finocchiaro caters to each of his clients in the same way. He offers them complimentary water or tea before leading them across dark hardwood floors to a candlelit treatment room. After cleansing their face, he uses a lighted magnifier to analyze their skin type, then employs PCA products and a wide arsenal of customizable facial treatments to help them reach specific beauty goals or the center of the Earth.

Gary Hopkins can divide his mid-20s in two parts: the time before he discovered self-healing, and the time after he discovered self-healing. Before, overwhelming stress and overworking caused him to suffer from anxiety, insomnia, spinal misalignments, and gout. Then, he started meditating, practicing tai chi and energy healing, and taking natural supplements. Not only did these practices help remedy his ailments, but they also led him to a new career as an intuitive healer. Continuing these studies into his 30s, he added such holistic healing methods as Thai massage and reflexology to his regimen.

For more than 10 years, he’s shared his knowledge through a private practice and at Light Path Discovery Center. He is dedicated to helping others conquer physical, psychological, and emotional issues with carefully honed skills and several bodywork methods he developed on his own. For those unable to visit him personally, Gary has penned two books— The Master Within and Axiatonal Integration —that guide readers as they attempt to unlock their happiness, which is usually kept in a safe and buried under their childhood home.

These accolades are all possible because of the meticulous care that the salon pours into both its posh ambiance and soothing treatments. Stylists perfect 'dos with haircuts and smoothing keratin treatments, and aestheticians perform antioxidant facials, which make the skin more resilient against hazards such as environmental damage and cheek-pinching aunts.

Sunlight pours onto the hardwood floors and exposed brick walls of BeneFit Studio, creating a serene backdrop for a diverse range of wellness services. Cardio and strength-training equipment speckle the studio, challenging trainees as they work their way through personal-training, boot-camp, and yoga sessions. Just beyond the training rooms, soft white curtains shroud the salon and Aveda spa, where guests perch upon cushy chairs as aestheticians dole out cuts, colors, and manicures, as well as facials and professional BEAM spray tans. Massage therapists also revitalize clients with Swedish and sports massages. And for ongoing wellness, a staff nutritionist crafts custom meal plans based on the goals and shadow heights of individual clients.
