Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
We add complimentary aromatherapy essential oils to your massage.
People go to spas to forget about the outside world. How does your decor help create an atmosphere where visitors can unwind?
[We] have a very relaxing atmosphere. When the client is lying down on their back, they are looking up at clouds.
How did you get started in the industry? Did you have an "ah-ha" moment in life?
I've been in the health and wellness field for 13 years. I knew the benefits of therapeutic massage for all of the athletes and patients that I worked with in sports medicine/the physical-therapy field. I felt it was time to branch off and open my own business addressing those needs.
A Navy veteran, graduate of Arizona State University?s kinesiology program, ACE-certified personal trainer, and master massage therapist, Jerry Coy knows a thing or two about the body. The fruits of Jerry?s achievements come to a head at Jerry Coy Massage & Healing Arts Spa, where the 10-year massage therapist tends to the mind and body in as many ways as his vast experiences permit. He treats his clients to massages that run the gamut from custom treatments?which include aromatherapeutic blends of Swedish, deep-tissue, and reflexology techniques?to LaStone Therapy, a geothermal treatment that alternates between applications of hot and cold stones.
But just as Jerry?s prior studies and certifications go well beyond the field of massage, so do the services he provides. During his salt-glow exfoliating scrubs, he uses blends of mineral-rich salt, pure jojoba oil, and medical-grade essential oils that he mixes himself on the day of each session. He also offers far infrared body wraps to encourage cellulite reduction as well as nutrition counseling to help clients squeeze back into the bucket seat of their first car.
Cindi Kerzie, RN at Stellar Skin & Laser beautifies complexions with nonsurgical treatments. From her half-hour refresher facial to more heavy-duty medical peels, her customized aesthetic services diminish signs of aging and rejuvenate skin. The beauty pro encourages collagen growth with fractional laser resurfacing or with collagen-infusion needling treatments. Beauty injections debilitate wrinkle muscles for months, and dermal fillers plump up lips or marionette lines. Cindi is a certified medical laser technician with a skill for permanently reducing unwanted body hair. She treats both male and female clients, expertly smoothing muttonchops, bikini zones, and backs with the Palomar StarLux laser.
The relaxing atmosphere of a traditional spa is balanced with professionalism of a doctor’s office at All About You Medspa. It’s staffed by a team of registered nurses, licensed massage therapists, and laser technicians. Their diverse menu of services also reflects this balance. Stylists take care of hair at seven different salon stations. Aestheticians perform chemical peels and photofacials—an advanced technique to remove red and brown marks from the skin—in addition to revitalizing European facials and manicures. Laser techs on hand use up-to-date technology to zap away hair for long periods—one of the many noninvasive, nonsurgical procedures offered at the spa.
Both of The Healing Arts Day Spa?s two locations enhance the transporting effects of their services with decor that evokes a Tuscan-style villa. Vines crawl across shelves and along the backs of chairs, walls are painted to resemble lightly weathered stucco, and stone tiles create the feel of an airy courtyard. In softly lit rooms, the hands of licensed massage therapists and aestheticians deliver relaxation through massage, body wraps, and skin and hair treatments. Customers can even learn to pamper themselves: owner Terrell Lynn teaches a course in couples? massage that helps forge closer bonds between spouses or strangers on a long bus ride.
The eponymous owner of Ana's Therapeutic Massage pursued her license in massage therapy after struggling with her own aches and pains. She believes that through massage, body pain can be relieved without painkillers or surgery. For her signature massage, she skips the oil, yet focuses on particularly painful points, calibrating each stroke to the individual client. Other massage modalities include facial massages designed to increase circulation and cranio-sacral massage that eases tension in the soft tissue and bones of the head, spine and pelvis.
