Todd Beckman founded MassageLuXe with the notion that five-star service should not be limited to pricey hotels. Today, the spa's team of qualified massage therapists and aestheticians continues to realize and build upon Todd's initial aspirations. A spa day at MassageLuXe includes all the perks one might expect from a vacation resort, from facials and massages to full-body waxing and baths in warm, effervescent champagne. The company's services tend to exceed expectations in other ways, too; along with standard massages such as Swedish and deep tissue, therapists are proficient in specialty modalities such as hot stone, reflexology, and aromatherapy.
The expert aestheticians at Brow Spa have never met an unwanted strand they couldn't eliminate. Using a cotton thread, they rid facial areas—such as brows, upper lips, and sideburns—of hair by plucking it out by the follicle. Waxing treatments likewise eradicate excess locks from faces, as well as other body parts such as backs and legs. Besides hair removal, the Brow Spa team also specializes in other beautifying treatments, including tinting lashes, exfoliating faces with herbal bleaches, and adorning bodies with henna tattoos.

Masha Davis was working as a journalist when her friend was hospitalized with complications from asthma. She watched as nurses used massage therapy to help her friend recover and decided to learn those techniques herself so she could help her in the future. Now a licensed massage therapist with her own practice, Masha offers massages that focus on the face and neck, hands and feet, back only, or the entire body. She incorporates scrubs to exfoliate skin and aromatherapy with such scents as lavender and cinnamon.
After forging a friendship during a yoga class for breast-cancer survivors, Kellie Moreland and Therese Blomberg joined with Michele Taylor to bring yoga’s restorative powers to their families and neighbors. Their signature class, Yoga Core and More, sculpts limbs, abs, and backs with a lineup of back bends, arm balances, and inverted poses. Ideal for seasoned yogis, this class raises the heart rate to burn calories and foster cardiovascular health. Sweltering temperatures draw students of all skill levels to hot yoga classes, loosening tight muscles and drawing out toxins as the group stretches between exposed-brick walls and wooden floors. Mom and Me'a classes, filled with songs, stories, and playful movements, help yogis aged 2–5 liberate the peace, joy, and Capture the Flag prisoners that lie within.
