One step into Timothy?s Salon & Spa (formerly Happy Feet), and it's immediately clear that it's a place of relaxation. Herbal fragrances fill the space and low lighting shades the minimalist decor. Soft music plays in a few different styles. It's an easy setting in which to feel relaxed and sets the stage for the reflexology treatments Timothy?s is known for.
But the massage practitioners here have talents that go well beyond toes and soles. Many of their services combine signature reflexology with other techniques, including shiatsu for the shoulders and neck. Or they can focus entirely on Swedish and deep-tissue massages or other custom kneads. Beyond providing that kind of internal bliss, aesthetics are a priority here too, with stylists who add value to any spa day with haircuts and aestheticians who apply permanent makeup and eyelash extensions.
Patients' mental well-being is paramount to Dr. Irene Feldman and Dr. Helena Stefan, which explains the center's emphasis on confidence-boosting cosmetic procedures and holistically targeted alternative therapies. After more than 25 years of experience working as an endocrinologist and internist, Dr. Feldman redirected her focus to cosmetic medicine and currently oversees noninvasive treatments with laser systems by such manufacturers as Candela, Sciton, and the Knights Templar. Dr. Stefan learned her holistic craft during a seven-year apprenticeship under Chinese physicians, who taught her the arts of acupuncture and natural medicine, and she continues to further her education in nutrition, herbology, and homeopathy.
Though it’s still enjoying the fresh feeling of being a new business, Lan Foot Spa offers the thousands-year-old practices of acupressure and reflexology. Founded on principles described in a document written between 2697 BC and 2596 BC, acupressure applies targeted pressure to specific points on the body. A similar treatment, reflexology taps into specific points on the feet. Each point on the feet corresponds to specific organs in the body; tips of the toes reflect the head, the balls of the feet reflect the heart, and the arches of the feet reflect the liver, the pancreas, and all tickle spots.
At 355 Barbershop & Spa, an experienced massage therapist uses careful movements to elevate weary bodies to a state of relaxed bliss. The 30-minute Swedish massage blends five different types of long, gentle strokes and gentle pressure to melt tension and pent-up stress faster than a thermos of hot cocoa melts the heart of a snowman. As the specialist targets taps and kneads, the soothing suite also helps contribute to increased circulation and a boosted immune system, leaving clients feeling both invigorated and at ease.
At Avi Day Spa, fitness experts, facialists, and massage therapists join forces to soothe clients with treatments based on Ayurveda––an ancient healing science that aims to bring body, mind, and spirit back into balance. Fifteen different styles of massage, including shiatsu, ashiatsu, and Swedish, help alleviate aches and clear mental fog. Body treatments can include hydrating essential-oil wraps or scrubs made from 40% honey, which helps make the body more receptive to topical oils and herbs and irresistible to cartoon bears. After rejuvenating facials or microdermabrasion, aestheticians also impart long-lasting allure with permanent-makeup services or grace limbs with continual smoothness courtesy of laser hair removal, waxing, or electrolysis.

Balmy beams of Zerona laser energy sink through the skin, sending toasty rivers of emulsified fat cells coursing through the bodies' natural detoxification canals and leaving anatomies as smooth and alluring as a dolphin on a dance floor.
