California runs through Kellie June’s veins. She was born on the Central Coast, and only left briefly to get a professional skincare education and beautify models on photo shoots and fashion shows in Austin. But as soon as she returned, she quickly funneled her newfound skills into helping people in her home state. Today, she flaunts her professional techniques in rejuvenating facials and peels, elegant makeup services, and wink-boosting eyelash extensions and tinting procedures. She also excels at waxing, wielding a gentle touch and thorough post-care instructions for each of her bikini, Brazilian, body, and facial waxing services to ensure skin stays smooth and comfortable.
Face to Face welcomes visitors to relax with services that range from time-tested massage techniques to revitalizing skin care treatments. Inside, licensed aesthetician and massage practitioner Emily Robinson designs customized facials, working with each client's skin composition to bring out their most glowing visage. She also administers massages such as the holistic Shiatsu treatment, which focuses on restoring the body's natural flow of energy, also known as qi. Beyond attending ongoing courses to stay abreast of the latest skincare breakthroughs, Emily draws from background in science and nutrition that leaves her particularly suited to help skin feel as healthy as it looks.
Le Serenity Spa is a calming massage studio owned and run by licensed massage therapist Vidalia DeLainez. Believing that massage therapy can reduce pain and help the body heal itself, she offers relaxation, prenatal, and deep-tissue modalities. Clients can also request aromatherapy and dry body brushing, which detoxifies skin.
Ayurvedic Therapists at Sama Ayurveda perform traditional Indian Ayurvedic treatments to help heal bodies and balance their energy. Warm oil massages unwind muscles, and fragrant flower foot soaks steep feet in detoxifying essential oils. Beyond relaxation services, staff members offer Ayurvedic lifestyle consultations to cover everything from weight loss to stress management. The spa is infused with aromatic botanicals to promote healing and tranquility as soon as customers step inside, and outside they can stroll in the lush courtyard, relax on benches, and pet the flowers.
In Scott Crawford's world, fitness is everything. First drawn to the importance of healthy living during a soccer career that would see him play professionally, Scott's interest initially centered on staying fit enough to take the pitch. However, he also found himself intrigued by the psychological side of wellness. This curiosity led him to earn degrees in psychology and study in Ph.D. programs for somatic and sports psychology. Along the way, he never neglected his physical side; after his playing career ended, he earned a slew of training certifications. Soon, he held licenses in personal training, bodywork, and yoga from governing bodies ranging from the National Academy of Sports Medicine and Stott Pilates to The Body Therapy Institute the White Lotus Foundation.
After cutting his teeth as a trainer at exclusive clubs and resorts throughout Texas and California, Scott finally blended his twin interests, founding SOMA Get Fit in 2007. There, he earned renown by devising custom-tailored wellness programs that combine goal-specific training with a holistic blend of mental-wellness counseling, Pilates, yoga, and nutrition education. Depending on his initial consultations, clients might sweat through adventurous sessions of beach and mountain training, ramble across forest paths on mountain bikes, or work their way through overnight retreats. This all-encompassing approach earned him a star-studded client list; past participants in his sessions include Calvin Klein, Michael Jordan, and Katy Perry. The press caught wind of his work, too, with glowing reviews appearing in the pages of Marie Claire, Sunset, and the Hollywood Reporter.
Now working with the Montecito Aesthetic Institute, Scott delivers his signature massages and bodywork treatments to clients within the center's tranquil modern treatment rooms.
In-set blue floor lights greet guests as they stroll into mySpa, an upscale respite tucked within the InterContinental Miami Hotel. Though the spa’s modern décor is striking, the warm, friendly demeanor of the staff quickly makes clients feel at home as they walk back to one of the spa’s 10 treatment rooms. Within the calming spaces, aestheticians customize facials with Intraceuticals Oxygen Infusion treatments designed to stimulate cell renewal by releasing a cool mist of oxygen over the skin, and rejuvenate bodies with scrubs and wraps that incorporate European bathing techniques. Candle lit hallways also lead clients to various nooks around the spa where they can find a SpaJet2 hydro capsule, nail salon with two pedicure thrones, and fully-stocked locker rooms with drench showers and eucalyptus steam rooms.
The spacious retreat also provides guests with free weights and a Technogym cardio theater in the fitness center, as well as a spa boutique filled with beauty accessories and clothing. And if clients just want a moment to relax, separate men and women’s lounges cater to them by providing a quiet space with healthy drinks and snacks.
