Essentials Massage & Facials' Spa professionals relax weary bodies with a collection of therapeutic services. Soothing massages employ a collection of kneads, strokes, and manipulations to reduce tension and disentangle body knots, with luxurious add-ons such as paraffin treatments and aromatherapy. The skin-savvy techs also rid frames of unwanted stubble with waxing services, smooth out wrinkles with chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and soften countenances with professional skincare products during facials.
Keeping client satisfaction at the forefront of its mission, the Avalon Med Spa and Laser Center recently underwent a complete overhaul that included acquiring the award-winning G.M. Collin product line, as well as a new therapist, physician, and staff. A medical director and board certified-internist leads a team of professionals, including one member with certification in aesthetic medicine, and special training in medical informatics. The wide-reaching expertise of its staff enables Avalon Med Spa to deliver a varied menu of aesthetic services that includes everything from laser hair removal to teeth whitening, Botox, and body wraps.
Devoted to bettering the patient experience, the center also nestles clients into a relaxing environment replete with plush couches and a waiting lounge done up in warm, neutral tones. Hardwood floors lead clients back to a private treatment room, where the elegant décor relaxes with furnishings such as draped, olive-green curtains, frosted sconces, and a wall waterfall that trickles out droplets harvested from the fountain of youth.:m]]
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.
Licensed massage therapist Heidi Garrett soothes bodies and minds with customized massage techniques and alternative therapies such as reiki, crystal therapy, and chakra balancing.

Long, flowing strokes alternate with firm taps as Heidi focuses on pressure points to reduce stress and help heal muscles pulled while shot-putting SUVs out of stolen parking spaces.
