The staff of massage therapists and aestheticians at True Spa keeps clients’ skin smooth and muscles loose with a full menu of bodywork and beauty services. Massage therapists untie the muscle knots that have burrowed into the shoulders and back using deep-tissue techniques, and they provide all-over stress relief with gentle, flowing Swedish massage. Aestheticians use facials and body scrubs to cleanse clients’ pores and buff away dull cells. They also adhere to squeaky-clean hygienic practices during men's and women's waxes that leave nearly any part of the anatomy smoother than chocolate mousse in silk pajamas.
Within a newly remodeled spa, licensed beauticians shellac nails with CND gel polish and assuage tension with massage therapy. Flowers and live plants bloom from nearly every spring-green corner of the salon space and candlelit massage room, and staff members with 10?20 years of experience each coddle bodies with spa services such as facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and body wraps.
Though the historic post-and-beam building that houses her studio dates all the way back to the 1830s, licensed massage therapist Lynda Williams is used to dealing with healing traditions that are even older than that. She draws upon her training and experience in ancient Eastern and Western modalities—including acupressure, craniosacral, and positional release therapy—to release stress, address chronic pain, and relieve the symptoms of an array of medical conditions. Each therapeutic session is tailored to clients' individual needs, addressing both physical symptoms and their underlying physical or emotional causes.
The Ridgefield Salon & Spa's owner, Darcey Wulkan, is also a licensed massage therapist and certified aesthetician and has been a local beautifying presence in Fairfield County for more than 17 years. Along with her staff, Darcey provides a suite of aesthetic services ranging from basic to downright indulgent—encompassing everything from classic mani-pedis and full-body waxing to decadent facials built around ingredients such as 24-karat liquid gold, caviar extract, and diamond dust. The newly remodeled spa features two pedicure chairs, complete with shiatsu massage jets, to make it even easier to schedule mani-pedis with the a friend. Massage therapists knead out knots in a private treatment room, where cocoa-colored walls and tranquil black-and-white photos of nature lend a relaxing aura akin to watching Yanni do yoga.
Beyond Organic Spa's philosophy is that people are a part of nature, and the best solutions for body and skincare woes are natural ones. With that tenet in mind, the staff pampers clients with eco-friendly beauty services fueled by organic products. As an exclusive partner of Éminence organic beauty products, the spa's services use serums and masks designed to safely tend to skin without harming it with additives or chemicals. The spa's filtered water keeps toxins out of the body, and all towels and linens are cleaned with natural products and detergents to keep pollutants and grass stains out of nature.
