The lustrous pearl that shines at the center of Perle Holistic Skincare’s logo signifies more than an obvious homophone—a rare symbol of perfection in nature, the gleaming object hints at the spa’s reliance on organic, natural products to cultivate flawless skin tones. The spa’s aesthetician shares a holistic philosophy that acknowledges the importance of the mind and spirit in effective body treatments, which explains why they eschew artificial products for plant- and flower-based cleansers, toners, and moisturizers from Dr. Hauschka. Specifically formulated to support life-giving cycles and strengthen the face’s rhythmic systems, these blends seep into pores to promote a glowing complexion and clear skin of oil after a museum visit spent head-butting portraits of smug Victorian ministers.
Shiatsu is a Japanese term that means simply “finger pressure”, which is exactly how this massage modality releases tension from muscular tissue. Licensed massage therapist Robert Ellestad opened his practice to bring the relaxing, therapeutic qualities of Shiatsu massage to bodies of all shapes and sizes. In addition to this pressure-point-focused style, he soothes bodies with the gentle series of Swedish massage strokes. His Thai massage sessions incorporate a series of facilitated yoga-like stretches that work out stiff muscles and joints while the client lies on a mat or hovers slightly on a flying carpet.
