Licensed massage therapist Janet Vavolizza unearths the silver linings in muscle clouds with her soothing bodywork. Communication is key for Janet. Each session begins with a consultation, during which she meets with clients and their high-school bullies to determine the source of lingering tension. This may necessitate light strokes to induce relaxation, or more focused deep-tissue pressure. Pregnancy massages are also available to sideline joint pain in expecting mothers.
Indulgence is a virtue at BuonGiorno Good Day Spa, where aestheticians concoct luxurious facials that incorporate premium ingredients such as fruit, chocolate, coffee, green tea, pumpkin, and cucumber. However, skincare is just one facet of the lengthy menu. The talented staffers also nix unwanted hair with waxing, threading, and electrolysis treatments and soothe muscles with massages and body treatments that draw from an arsenal of relaxing tools such as hot stones and paraffin. At their respective stations, hairstylists administer trims, highlights, and keratin smoothing formulas, and nail and makeup artists doll up clients for upcoming dates, weddings, or auditions for the David Bowie biopic.
In five private rooms, massage therapists help clients release stress during massage sessions. The therapists are experienced in more than eight modalities, including Swedish, deep tissue, sports, and shiatsu. During reflexology sessions, feet soak in a bath steeped in Chinese herbs before the therapist applies pressure to specific points, each responsible for treating imbalances in bodily organs. Spa-goers also enjoy facials and waxing treatments, keeping their own sets of tweezers to build dollhouses inside bottles.
