At Island Touch Therapeutic Massage, licensed massage therapist Ayesha puts her extensive training to work during each of her massage sessions. Formerly from Trinidad, Ayesha incorporates an island spirit in her work in an effort to help melt away muscle tension, curb chronic pain, and allay aches caused by bending over backward to make everyone else happy. She augments her massages with various add-ons such as softening foot soaks, invigorating salt scrubs, or slimming body wraps. She also infuses massages with soothing aromatherapy to relax the entire body and evoke an island paradise or a DMV covered in scratch-and-sniff stickers.

After the combined stress and pain following an accident where she was struck by an automobile, Chris Ackermann wanted to help others avoid the kind of experience she had gone through. Hoping to offer a respite from the stressors of physical trauma, Ackermann went through the rigors of more than 700 hours of training at the St. Croix Center for the Healing Arts. There, she learned techniques in integrative, deep-tissue, sports, reflexology, and chair massage, among others, creating a multifaceted foundation on which to begin her business, Time to Relax. Today she puts her skills to work, customizing each massage to her clients' individual ailments, pains, and stressful fortune cookies from last week.
The aestheticians at St Croix Skincare not only cleanse and balance complexions with therapeutic facials, they also teach their clients how to maintain healthy skincare regimens at home. They tackle dermal concerns such as blemishes, rosacea, and dryness with customized masks, serums, and sprinkler systems loaded with moisturizer. Ultrasound technology aids in deeper cleansing, whereas microdermabrasion treatments buff away dead skin cells with a diamond- or microcrystal-tipped wand. The team also whisks away unwanted hair with full-body waxing and bronzes birthday suits with airbrush spray tanning.
