When nationally licensed massage therapist Steve Ribortella assuages pain and relieves stress through massage therapy. His studio beams with clean linens, quality lotions, aromatic essential oils—in short, every tool he needs to perform his full array of massage modalities. Once he sets to work, he customizes his strokes to accommodate a range of needs, from tense shoulders to tender hamstrings.
An acupuncture physician and two massage therapists have joined forces to help clients find relief from pain. Their treatments alleviate muscle spasms, arthritis, gastrointestinal issues, and allergies. The team also helps resolve emotional difficulties, such as insomnia, depression, and anxiety.
As their spa’s name implies, the licensed technicians at Forever Young Body Works tap into the fountain of youth with detoxifying body wraps and nourishing facials that soften, hydrate, and set skin aglow. They supplement these skincare treatments with beautifying spray tans, eyelash tinting, and all-over waxing services. Permanent-makeup applications cut time out of the morning routine; similarly, ink-removal sessions save time that would otherwise be wasted explaining tattoos of string-theory equations to nosy strangers on the bus.
Le Bijou Salon & Spa helps clients find inner tranquility while enhancing their exteriors. The salon’s stylists shear tresses into new ‘dos and alter colors in front of gold-framed mirrors. Aestheticians perform facial treatments with seaweed and essential oils, customizing products to banish crow’s feet or renew cheeks worn out from communing with puffer fish. They also lavish hands and feet with spa treatments and wax away unwanted fuzz from any area—even ears. Meanwhile, the spa’s massage therapists invite aching bodies into private treatment rooms, where they knead muscles in modalities that range from prenatal to craniosacral.
