believes in giving back to her community. After learning the beauty trade in Sonoma County, she stuck around, treating local clients at The Face Place to restorative face and skin services.

Melissa crafts custom at-home regimens, using her Dermalogica know-how to address each set of skin’s hopes, fears, and health issues.

A visit to Elements Skin Care & Massage Studio is as much a treat for the eyes as it is for the senses. In each of the spa?s spacious chambers, the stark geometry of dark wood furniture complements the flowing lines of a sheer curtain, a linen-draped massage table, or a single potted orchid. These aesthetic pleasures only serve to enhance the sensory decadence that the staff of skin specialists, massage therapists, and nail technicians grant their clients. A slate of 10 facials ?including a signature service that treats not only the face to a massage, but the feet, legs, back, and scalp as well?help stave off blemishes and fine lines with Bioelements products. In private massage rooms, therapists call on several modalities to ease tension with hot stones, firm pressure, or pregnancy-appropriate strokes, as reflexology foot treatments ease tension stemming from tight shoes or arguments between toes. Feet can also bask in the spa?s many pedicures, which go beyond standard nail-salon services to incorporate heated lava shells, warm neck wraps, and even complimentary martinis.
