Twelve years of hands-on spa experience were enough to teach Gregg Gonzales a valuable lesson about his clients: no two are the same. He takes this lesson to heart at Dos Manos Massage Studio, where he draws on his intuition and massage know-how to craft massages that cater to all manner of aches and ailments. Stationed within six private treatment rooms, Gregg and his team of licensed massage therapists integrate modalities such as deep tissue and reflexology; the exact combination of techniques used always depends on their clients’ input. During each massage, the team of therapists welcomes clients to plug their own iPod into a dock beside the heated massage table and slip away to the self-recorded sounds of waves crashing or pigeons being tickled. Complimentary refreshments and a calming relaxation room erase any traces of tension that remain after the session.
Sesen Skin Body Wellness takes its name from the ancient Egyptian word for lotus flower?a symbol recognized throughout that culture for its relation to rebirth and beauty. Thousands of years later, the wellness center works to keep this meaning alive by combining a holistic methodology with med-spa-quality equipment. Recognized for its facials by both CBS Local and CityVoter, Founder Stacy Webb's integrated approach has resulted in an impressive service menu that boasts an array of services, such as skin care, acupuncture, energy healing, and massage. Guests may indulge in skin-soothing facials that quench, detoxify, or soften surfaces or lose inches while relaxing in a contour body wrap. Those looking to minimize appearances of fine lines may opt for unique treatments such as dermaplaning for fine-hair removal or radiancy microphototherapy, which promotes natural healing through the power of light and heat energy.

In "Ode to a Grecian Urn," the famous scholarly article for the journal Science, John Keats wrote, "Beauty is truth, truth beauty."
