When children are sick, their parents will do anything to heal them. That’s why, when her teenage daughter developed fibromyalgia, Sorina Durante decided to go back to school to find ways to improve her daughter's health. She attended 10 different programs across England, Canada, and the United States to learn the latest in laser therapy and relaxation techniques, which not only helped her relieve her daughter's pains but also led her to open Energy Balance Laser Therapy & Massage. There, Durante shares with her clients her expertise in red-light therapy, therapeutic massage, and Dr. Kaufman's pain-neutralization technique, the latter of which relieves chronic and acute pain using a light touch. Durante also offers anti-aging facials that use lasers to firm and clear the skin, as well as stress-relieving alternative therapies such as reiki and CranioSacral.

As a physical therapist with his own private practice, John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of related industries—particularly massage therapy, where he observed especially rapid growth. As the spa industry continued to expand, he noticed that hardly any nationally recognized brands resulted from that growth. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to fill that niche with a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa. Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 12 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.
Guided by a holistic approach that soothes both body and mind, Lily Pad Day Spa?ranked first in the area by Spafinder?is proud to offer an array of all-natural treatments performed with organic products. An Eastern influence shows up both in the decor and in treatments such as a Sun & Moon ritual with a Dead Sea mud massage and an aromatherapy facial with pure essential oils. As guests walk toward their treatment rooms, they move among sheer curtains, colorful lanterns, and natural elements such as waterfalls and stone walls.
To really help clients feel at home, Lily Pad offers complimentary extras such as meditation stations and a relaxation room with chocolates and organic beverages. Customers can also hang around after treatments by taking fitness classes, browsing the Unique Boutique, or ordering a spa lunch.
When it comes to relaxation, Lisa K. Girandola offers a variety of options for pampering her patrons. She and her staff promote inner calm and relaxed muscles by ushering clients through 14 types of massages and 15 ways of smashing an alarm clock. Cold, clinical technology is nowhere to be found during facial and skin services. Instead, fruit and lavender peels and masks replace lasers and harsh chemicals during the spa's sea facials, herbal facials, and optimum rejuvenation treatments. In addition to beautifying and relaxing physiques, Lisa nurtures spiritual sides by attempting to balance chakras and leading students through three levels of reiki-attunement classes.
