Mod Skin And Body's massage therapists, aestheticians, and nail technicians aren't the only ones who are good with their hands. Its owner actually created the repurposed barn doors that decorate the spa in their garage. They also crafted the chevron-patterned wood installation in the waiting room by hand.
The spa's rustic-chic decor includes a handcrafted pedicure bench, as well. This tufted banquette pairs with a crystal chandelier to add a dash of luxury to the pedicure station.
While indulgences for the eyes abound here, it's the spa treatments that keep clients coming back for more. These include everything from gentlemen's facials to Obagi chemical peels to makeup tutorials that use bareMinerals products.

Siobhan Robinson is a personal trainer, a licensed massage practitioner, and a certified Level II fascial stretch therapist. Her diverse skills culminate at Athletic Stretch Therapy, where Siobhan offers stretch therapy, which provides the benefits of yoga and massage by stretching the muscles and the fascia, a network of soft connective tissue that clings to the body’s muscles. Occupational stress, age, poor health, and fitness habits can thicken the fascia, leading to stiff joints, poor posture and circulation, and inability to hide in a carry-on suitcase. Siobhan reverses these effects and fosters relaxation by taking her clients through a series of therapeutic stretches that help restore range of motion.
Dr. Shao-Hao Cheng treats patients with neck and back pain caused by poor posture, car accidents, and sports injuries. His techniques vary depending on the treatment; sometimes he relies on small instruments to realign the spinal column, while other times he uses his bare hands to soothe muscles. The massage therapists on his team know plenty about that, as they also use their hands to relieve chronic pain with Swedish and deep-tissue techniques. Dr. Cheng and his staff also work with patients to prevent future injuries, offering nutritional guidance and advice on how to build a posture-enhancing sleep nest.
