Founder and CEO of Hair Solutions Of Tampa Shannon Sorbara was simply following in her father's footsteps when she entered the hair-replacement biz. A one-time employee of his studio in Pittsburgh, she now brings her styling talents and beauty know-how to warmer climes. At Hair Solutions, she and her team offer nonsurgical hair replacement systems tailored to men, women, and mannequins brought to life by a magic. Treatment might include laser hair therapy, which helps to stimulate and repair damaged follicles on the scalp, hair grafting, extensions, or even custom hair pieces that can be perfectly blended into the client's own hair.
Willow Healing?s licensed massage therapist customizes treatments to each individual's requests and needs. When clients arrive, the staff chats with them to find out what type of massage will be ideal as well as what they ate for lunch. Those with recurring pain can turn to therapeutic techniques for relief, and mothers-to-be can treat themselves to a gentle, safe prenatal massage. Sessions can be used to target a wide range of pains, from headaches and lower-back pain to fibromyalgia and stress caused by postural misalignment.

As a licensed massage therapist with seven years of experience, Sam Tremblay is well versed in the basics—including Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal massage—but his catalogue of skills goes beyond the ordinary. After mastering skills in basic modalities, Sam went on to pursue extensive training in two specialized modalities: myofascial release and Swe/Thai massage. Myofascial release involves the use of gentle, sustained pressure and healthy peer pressure to eliminate pain in connective tissues. Swe/Thai massage combines long, flowing strokes with Thai-influenced stretches to improve the patient’s range of motion.:m]]
When he sees a problem, Pasquale DeVito fixes it?even if that means he has to reinvent scissors. Frustrated by the overthinning, cuticle-damaging effects of normal shears, DeVito drew on his more than 20 years of hairstyling experience to create the Intext Shears. These blades cut strands slowly and with more control while also maintaining the cuticle?s integrity. There, amid sleek black-and-white decor brightened by blue and purple lighting, DeVito and his team shape both classic and modern ?dos that flatter faces whether they?re oval, heart shaped, or octagonal.
As its name implies, Executive Physiques Spa and Fitness houses the best of both worlds: a fitness center where personal trainers devise custom, calorie-burning exercise routines, and a relaxing oasis where massage therapists and aestheticians tend to skin and strained muscles. The fitness center’s trainers and instructors regularly attend workshops to keep their skills sharp. Rather than use their strength to twist clients’ arms into signing contracts, they focus on developing the exciting workouts that anchor their drop-in fitness classes. The spa’s staff pick up where they leave off, soothing feet in ion baths and erasing fine lines with nonsurgical face-lifts.
The staff at Soho Tan Spa knows there’s no single correct path to getting a glowing tan. To accommodate clients of all skin types and sensibilities, they offer tanning treatments ranging from the classic UV beds to airbrush treatments by trained technicians or the automated jets of a VersaSpa booth. Their three-pronged approach lets clients choose the level of privacy and method best suited to their skin. The VersaSpa spray tanning booths offer three tanning MyMyst shades to accommodate clients who just want a splash of color or those who want to look like they've spent weeks in a close orbit around the sun. Four brands of beds let clients emphasize facial tanning or faster tan times, while spa facials performed in the tanning salon help refresh newly tanned skin.
