Nestled within All About You Day Spa, licensed massage therapist Marilyn Skidmore uses massage oils and gliding strokes to sideline clients' chronic aches. After relaxing with hot stone therapy or deep-tissue bodywork, clients can also solicit the spa's aesthetician Sabrina for a rejuvenating facial.
Owner Scott Ingell, a licensed massage therapist and massage-therapy instructor, and his staff of professional muscle melters strive to treat patients’ chronic muscular pain with medically based massage therapies in a clinical setting. During each 60- or 90-minute bodywork session, healing hands span sore necks and backs with gliding strokes and robust kneads designed to evict subterranean tension and curb chronic-pain patterns. Couples massages cater to tandems with the same sinew-soothing treatment, providing an alternative to the guided tours of Home Depot that comprise most nights on the town. Ideal for boosting sluggish circulation, massage therapy may help to purge hazardous bodily toxins, improve digestion, and enhance muscle tone.
A complimentary glass of chilled flavored water or wine welcomes clients to A Better You Day Spa and Salon, a prelude to the relaxed pampering that awaits. Within this spacious 6,000-square-foot facility, stylist and aestheticians busy themselves with a full menu of beautifying services, including bundled services for ladies and gentlemen alike. Skin treatments whisk away oil, fine lines, and unwanted hair, and massages leave muscles more relaxed than a North Pole elf in January. For those wanting to extend the coddling, the gift shop sits stocked with luxurious balms, salves, and lotions.
The Cutera NdYag Laser, outfitted with CoolGlide Xeo technology to keep skin cool and comfortable, is the backbone of Aesthetic Laser Medical Spa & Salon, performing services such as permanent hair reduction, tattoo and spider-vein removal, and nonablative skin therapy. Unlike other lasers, this FDA-cleared laser's longer wavelength allows it to diminish hair on all types of skin, including tan and dark, and it works on both coarse and fine hair. It can treat unsightly veins quicker than sclerotherapy, it can improve skin tone and texture, and it rarely if ever requires downtime. The Cutera system's beautifying efforts are aided by facials, magic, body wraps, and Dysport injections.
