Andrea Ignacio-Alves first began working in the beauty industry as a teenager?she even helped her mother open a spa in Brazil.

Although a quick pedicure can leave toes neatly trimmed and polished, the addition of orange aromatherapy oils or a peppermint foot bath can turn the treatment into an indulgent experience. Similarly, the massage therapists provide a brief escape by using therapeutic or relaxation-inducing modalities to alleviate the aches and pains caused by the everyday stresses. Serena Day Spa also hosts stylists, who can perform a basic trim and style or create a more dramatic look with highlights.
For more than 25 years, the technicians of Crown Medical have had one mission: to banish unsightly varicose and spider veins with sclerotherapy injections. A consultation kicks off initial visits as a trained tech utilizes a computerized evaluation to determine vein size, shape, and Myers-Briggs personality type. Clients will also undergo a skin-color and allergy test before a sclerosant solution is injected into the unwanted vessels, causing them to permanently break down and fade over time. While they have fine-tuned their technique for abolishing veins for decades, the team at Crown Medical continues to develop and share their wealth of sclerotherapy knowledge through medical journals and perpetual training.

The spacious, laid-back nature of the spa complements the pleasant effects of its services, especially in the Zen Relaxation Room and three private massage rooms.
The licensed massage therapists and aestheticians at Lady Bella Med Spa strike a balance between medical professionalism and spa relaxation. The med-spa technicians' white lab coats echo their emphasis on cleanliness during treatments such as electrolysis, lipo cavitation, and mechanical cellulite reduction. The med spa’s soothing interior offsets its clinical sterility with the soft light of candles and floral-themed treatment rooms where facials, massages, and acupuncture take place. The staff maintains tranquility by requiring clients to turn off their cell phones, beepers, and ability to transform into vehicles.
Loving Lotus Center & Spa's cadre of conventional and spiritual healers blend physical and metaphysical pampering within their pastel-tinted space. Spa treatments enhance traditional facials and massages with holistic tools, such as gemstones and crystals, and luxurious products, such as caviar, gold, and Lamborghini owner's manuals. Guides experienced in exploring the unseen help clients consult tarot cards, study mediumship, or reorient a room according to feng shui principles. Serene treatment rooms aid attendees in turning their gazes inward during classes that cover topics such as meditation or reiki.
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.
