For nearly a decade, the skincare professionals at Lan’s Skin Care and Health Spa have maintained a relaxing haven that stimulates the body's capacity to heal. With each service, they attend to emotional and physical needs, adhering to the belief that mind, body, and spirit are as inextricably linked as peanut butter and the roof of your mouth. Aestheticians ease the mind with quiet treatment rooms, and relax the body by punctuating facials with hand, foot, and shoulder massages. Together, these efforts uplift the spirit and foster overall wellness.
Acne treatments and deep-skin-cleaning services dot the menu alongside permanent-makeup applications that enhance natural features. Lending equal credence to the areas beneath the neck, the specialists perform body wraps and offer steam and sauna therapy.
A trip to Elite Hair & Skin is potentially a multilingual experience: technicians can comprehend the phrases ''I want to look dashing'' and ''Please release the bees from my hair'' in English, Spanish, Mandarin, Korean, and Russian. Staffers trim the locks of men, women, and children, but they also remove hair in other ways—waxing uproots bristles from such areas as women’s bikini regions and men’s full backs, and threading creates precise eyebrow shapes simply by rolling cotton threads across the brow.
At A Place for Your Face, specialist Franchesca Scalise recognizes that different skin types require different care. Keeping that in mind, she uses Osmosis Pur medical skincare products, which are plant-based and free of artificial fragrances, colors, and additives, to craft custom treatments for her clients. The services she provides include microdermabrasion with antioxidants and topical nutrients, acid-free peels, and ultrasound facials that use sound waves to stimulate collagen production without revealing any lucrative ideas that may be blooming inside the client’s head.
In more than a decade as a hairstylist, Jillian Galli has undergone countless trainings in nearly every aspect of hair. Those have yielded certifications from Brazilian Blowout, Wella and Redken hair color, Aveda, and TressAllure hair extensions. She puts those certifications to good use when snipping strands into classic and edgy cuts, highlighting locks in vibrant hues, and smoothing manes with Brazilian Blowouts.
How does one start a skincare business with no equipment, products, or money? Kim Evans found herself in that predicament when she started her business immediately after passing the state boards. With nothing but faith and a strong work ethic, she began tending to her clients' skin needs inside a rented room of a small spa. She worked 80 hours per week and became a licensed massage therapist to expand her business into what it is today: a wellness spa that enhances the beauty and health of skin and body through spa services and massage. Inside 2Gorjis Integrated Health & Wellness, three private treatment rooms house clients as two skin therapists cleanse surfaces during custom facials, or wrap bodies in aromatherapy herbal linens. The staff members bolster natural features with eyelash extensions, meticulous body waxing, and makeup artistry that includes exclamation points drawn next to eyebrows.
Back 2 Perfect Wellness Center's owner and massage therapist Laura has a sixth sense for what her clients need to heal. Using keen instinct honed over years of caring for people with chronic pain, stress, and general physical discomfort, Laura can tell where her clients' aches and pains lie and how to root them out with nine massage-therapy styles. Of course, Laura doesn't work on instinct alone. The attentive therapist takes the time to listen to visitors? ailments, and even encourages them to bring in a list of their symptoms, which can range from backaches to fatigue to premature antler molting. Laura customizes each massage session using therapeutic modalities including Swedish, trigger point, prenatal, and myofascial release. Laura also heads up a team of massage therapists with their own specialties, including a reiki master and sports-injury rehabilitator.
