Massage therapist Heather Eck wields deft hands to knead muscles into a state bereft of tension. The Heaven-Sent spa package begins with a Swedish massage, during which a muscle maven strokes the sinews of the back to melt away stresses caused from everyday responsibilities, such as working or finding an envelope. A subsequent paraffin therapy aims to abate pain in arthritic hands and feet before a face steam and treatment alleviates weathered visages. After refreshing the client's smile mantel, the therapist massages the scalp to improve follicular health. The procedure concludes with a Foot Fantasy treatment, during which the staffer bathes, scrubs, and massages the feet and legs and exfoliates shabby shoe tenants with a mud bath. Like many movies, the Heaven-Sent spa package lasts 2.5 hours and features a surprise Tom Hanks cameo.

Complexion Perfection’s licensed aesthetician Brianne Whitley keeps it simple. Her skincare treatments fall into two categories: facials and chemical peels. A selection of four facials is designed to combat specific complexion issues, while nine different chemical peels employ more aggressive blemish-fighting formulas still gentle enough for use on patients with rosacea, dry skin, or melodramatic noses.
