Joseph D'Antona, The Balance Health & Wellness Center's managing director, heads a practice that won Long Island Press's Best Acupuncturist and Best Massage awards for 2013. He uses his advanced certifications in NAET allergy elimination to naturally ride allergies through acupuncture. Collaborating with this expert team of therapists, D'Antona offers services to reduce pain, eliminate stress, and remove toxins. Sessions in the far-infrared sauna and water-fueled colon-hydrotherapy sessions promote wellness and are just two of the center's 25 salutary treatments. Spa procedures, such as cleansing, exfoliating facials, soothing hot-stone massages, and acoustic-wave cellulite-reduction therapy beautify bodies and promote a sense of deep relaxation. D'Antona takes a holistic approach to improving the health of clients, and he and the staff make communication a priority throughout each guest's treatment experience.
Coastal-blue and deep-purple hues encapsulate the space at The Concierge Spa, complementing soft lighting and a relaxing aromatic scent. Aestheticians and massage therapists helm this oasis, where they offer skin and body treatments for both men and women inside two separate suites. In the women’s spa, clients can enjoy the warmth of a heated massage bed as skin specialists rejuvenate faces and bodies with facials, peels, and body scrubs. Brow and lash services ensure smoldering glances, and waxing treatments make skin smoother than a buttered neck stuck in a staircase. Men can enjoy specialized facials tailored to their rugged lifestyles, and teenage boys can get ready for a fake I.D. photo with a youngster’s facial. Massage therapists stretch and soothe aching muscles of both genders with therapeutic massages, such as the pressure-point-specific thai technique or the four hands massage conducted by two therapists.
The technicians of At Your Best, Inc. focus on treatments that help customers look their best, including Cavi-Lipo. Ultrasound facials use sound waves to stimulate collagen growth in the skin, helping renew cells and diminish signs of aging, including wrinkles, sun damage, and acne. During Cavi-Lipo treatments, the nonsurgical machine is placed on top of the skin, and releases ultrasonic waves that help dissolve and shrink fat cells. Over the course of the treatments, the number of which varies from customer to customer, patients often feel healthier.
More than 30 years after its inception, Cactus Salon & Spa and its team of continually educated stylists have not lost their edge?they earned the Long Island Press's designation as Best Hair Salon and Best Day Spa in 2011 and 2012. It's not surprising, then, that the salon has enjoyed such impressive growth over the years, with more than two dozen separate spa and salon locations.
Although hair is still the focus?stylists craft 'dos that reflect everyday ease or fashion-forward thinking?the repertoire has expanded to include everything from nail treatments and massages to permanent cosmetics and laser services. Since the roster is so broad, many clients take advantage of Cactus Club memberships, which give them the flexibility to try multiple services and products by deactivating the force fields between treatment rooms and granting a 33% discount on Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
Salon Von De Beauty Bar's board-certified lash artists and aestheticians beautify clients with head-to-toe nail and spa treatments. Semi-permanent eyelash extensions thicken fringe without the mess of applying false lashes each day. UV-free spray-tanning sessions deliver natural, safe color year round. Extra inches fade from waistlines in the face of Cavi-Lipo ultrasound treatments. Each of the spa?s body treatments are noninvasive and free from needles, scalpels, and miniaturized robots that blast fat from inside. Salon Von De Beauty Bar is an OSHA certified salon and aims to provide a comfortable environment for all clients, including using a special ventilation system with their keratin treatments.

Their cosmetic surgeries, meanwhile, tweak physiques while maintaining a natural look.
