Q.U.E. Massage Therapy & Spa's retinue of pelt-pampering aestheticians works to create clear complexions while enhancing youthful tone with one of three refining facials. Staffers begin their facials with an exfoliating cleansing that sloughs away rough outer layers. Then, they give treatment masks VIP access to skin's internal layers with salubrious ingredients that seep deep into epidermal expanses, tackling imperfections more efficiently than microscopic linebackers. Mini facials then proceed with a steam application designed to open up pores and unclog visages of complexion-marring dots before aestheticians gingerly massage a hydration-infused moisturizer into skin. Alternately, during the Red Carpet facial, a variety of high-end complexion remedies coat demeanors while infusing skin with oxygen to bolster circulation and create glowing mug palettes. Otherwise, opt for a face-lift facial, which utilizes steam, ice, and a customized treatment mask to smooth away wrinkles and render a toned, vibrant complexion in a safer fashion than undergoing surgery or sneaking into Father Time's underground lair to arm-wrestle him for your 20s back.

In addition to common modalities such as Swedish and deep tissue, Barb performs foot reflexology, Thai massages, and Esalen massages, whose slow-moving rhythm reflects the body’s internal rhythms, balances chakras. Whatever the relaxation technique, she keeps 30-minute intervals between each session to ensure that each client gets both a full appointment and her complete attention.
