Heather Soss isn't just licensed to massage—she also boasts national certification, fluency in reiki techniques, and a membership with the American Massage Therapy Association. With these tools in her belt, she mends muscles and fosters personal growth. Before Heather opened her own studio, she immersed herself in the spa industry and spent two years working at a massage school. With that experience under her belt, she founded Health & Harmony Massage and Wellness Center, a peaceful retreat surrounded by a bike-path-equipped patch of nature, where clients can relinquish anxiety and heal.
Her team of licensed and trained therapists continues their education to bolster their menu of techniques, which includes Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal massage. While their nimble fingers knead sinews with Somasilk massage cream, the therapists can cover clients' eyes with lavender-eucalyptus eye pillows. The team also furnishes table warmers and heating pads that help loosen gnarly tissues. In addition to releasing calming hormones, such as serotonin and dopamine, massage can reduce cortisol, the hormone responsible for stress and the birth of future terrible NFL Draft picks. Heather's team also offers acupuncture treatments and spa parties.
The Haven Spa's aestheticians pamper men, women, and teens with customized skin treatments. A brick fireplace provides a warm ambiance as patrons sip tea or gargle it in harmony with new acquaintances. In the evenings, aestheticians transform the spa into a festive refuge for groups of friends with spa parties.
Lazur La Vie founder Cheryl Anne brings an impressive amount of beauty-industry experience to her med spa, including stints in professional image consulting, makeup artistry, and skincare distribution. She gives complimentary consultations to clients before any treatment, helping them to sift through the spa's lengthy list of skin and body treatments. Lasers can be found throughout the menu, targeting everything from yellowing smiles to gravity-stricken skin on a mission to touch the toes.
Plawski Chiropractic combines the skills of not one specialist, but three: a massage therapist, a physical therapist, and Doctor of Chiropractic Marie Plawski herself, a chiropractor with 17 years of experience. Together with NYS licensed massage therapist John Wyler, their skill sets form a voltron of drug-free health care that addresses the full range of skeletal and soft-tissue problems, from pinched nerves in the spine to sore muscles and torn ligaments.
But the team doesn't just administer medical services. Clients looking to untether tension can relax under warm river rocks with a hot-stone massage or extend their feet into a soothing Japanese foot massage.
At Lashful Day Spa, licensed aestheticians beatify clients in the spa, where they apply waterproof eyelash extensions and touch-ups. To battle wrinkles and smiles that won't wipe off, they administer customized facials such as oxygen infusion, European, and microdermabrasion. Clients can also seek out nail treatments and half a dozen varieties of massage.
Wielding an arsenal of advanced technology, the staff at New Image Laser & Med Spa fends off the effects of time to reveal smooth skin and shapely bodies. Committed to offering great services provided by experienced staff, New Image Laser & Med Spa offers clients a variety of weight-loss services and cutting-edge aesthetic treatments. The med spa specializes in SmartLipo and Smooth Shapes cellulite treatments, which use laser light to break down fat cells, tighten skin, and reduce cellulite. The staff also offers skin-tightening treatments, tattoo removal, and services that diminish the appearance of spider veins and rosacea.
Hot stones and aromatherapy oils gently glide across the body inside private rooms at @ease Spa, unwinding tight muscles and calming tense minds. Aromatherapy is also used during facials to rebalance the complexion and make sure clients don't leave with their faces smelling like regular old skin. Other relaxing services at the spa include a full-body sugar or Dead Sea mud rub and Jin Shin Jyutsu, an ancient technique where light pressure is applied to 26 specific points on the body to relieve aches and improve respiration. No matter the treatment, the spa's massage therapists are glad to customize pressure to each guest's liking, and afterward, a complimentary sauna and shower await.
