Within the cozy confines of Kristina Spa Studio, Kristina pampers her clients with relaxing skin and body treatments. Classic Euro facials cleanse and moisturize complexions; luxurious 24-karat gold facials help reduce the appearance of fine lines; and acne facials target blemishes by reining in oil, soothing inflammation, and catching bacteria in microscopic mousetraps. In her massages, Kristina releases muscle tension, improves circulation, and tames stress with smooth Swedish strokes or more intense deep-tissue kneads.
At Journey to Natural Health, licensed massage therapists and estheticians operate with a single goal: returning clients to a place of optimal health and wellness. Their versatile service menu allows them to treat an assortment of complaints—blemished skin, achy bones, and sluggish spirits, to name a few. Relaxing massages, for example, can alleviate stress, while therapeutic ones aim to relieve pain. Estheticians seek to refresh skin with body treatments like the Soin Velours, which includes full-body exfoliation and a citrus-infused firming body fluid that's massaged into the skin. There's also a whole slate of facials, administered with naturally derived Yonka Paris products, to combat blemishes and other imperfections. And on top of that, energy-healing treatments like reiki and energy balancing help clients feel in tune with themselves and the minstrels who follow them in lockstep.
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
Therapeutic Measures owner Emily Sanders believes in the power of touch. As a licensed and certified massage therapist, she aims to ease aches and pains with massage therapy and rejuvenate skin with cosmetic treatments. She and her staff take more than a half-dozen approaches to decreasing pain and promoting relaxation, depending on the client's specific needs. These include massage modalities such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and myofacial release therapy. They also provide sports massages geared toward injury prevention, whether it's for a teenage quarterback or a golden retriever who is just asking for a torn ACL playing professional basketball. Therapeutic Measures' cosmetic services include procedures to conceal scars and stretch marks as well as facials to help bolster collagen production.
