The massage therapists at Rejuvenate Day Spa melt tense muscles with dexterous digits. Practitioners begin by lubricating lumbar with Biotone massage cream for smoother kneading and somersaulting through art-museum air ducts. During the bamboo massage, stalks of varying lengths and diameters assist fingers with deep-tissue work to promote improved circulation and sensory-nerve perception. Swedish techniques encourage relaxation, ease tension, and result in more delicate pancakes. A furnished rest area offers clients a place to recuperate after each session.
After studying Thai massage for four years in the United States, Sandy Rabolli moved to Thailand to truly master the techniques. That dedication has led to more than 25 years of international clinical experience and a repertoire of modalities such as Swedish, craniosacral, and neuromuscular massage, with which Rabolli’s skilled hands can ease everything from neck, shoulder, and wallet pain to headaches, digestive problems, and sciatica. To this day, Rabolli continues to further her education, studying such subjects as myoskeletal techniques.
The weight-loss specialists at Slim Body Wellness Center employ the noninvasive technologies of Zerona and Venus Freeze to slim figures.

Their LED-therapy treatments, meanwhile, shower exteriors in healing light, clarifying skin and imbuing it with the youthful radiance of a newborn galaxy.

At the age of 18, Skin N Beyond owner and licensed aesthetician Suzanne Turi traded her pageant gowns for a makeup brush, moving to Hollywood to attend the Joe Blasco makeup school. After graduation, she found herself smack in the middle of major happenings, beautifying faces at events such as the Rose Bowl, the Oscars, and Morgan Freeman's fantasy baseball draft. Armed with know-how gleaned from The Dermal Institute in Manhattan and the Galen Institute School of Massage Therapy in Connecticut, she recruited a team of staffers versed and certified in multiple cosmetic disciplines to help her establish Skin N Beyond. That multifaceted expertise shows through today; as clients sip wine and listen to pop hits in the spa's trendy boutique-like lounge, team members execute beautification rituals ranging from manicures and seaweed gel masks to eyelash extensions, microdermabrasion, and medical-grade facial peels.
