A Touch of Heaven came to fruition under the direction of Andrea Sylvia, an aesthetician and former surgical nurse who dreamed of blending the pampering atmosphere of a day spa with the compassionate care of a doctor's office. Medical therapies appear throughout the extensive service menu, brightening complexions with pharmaceutical-grade skincare products from SkinCeuticals and trimming silhouettes with weight-loss programs. Nonsurgical face-lifts rely on microcurrent technology to diminish fine lines and visibly firm the skin, while the futuristic-looking alpha spa capsule combines the detoxifying benefits of a sauna with the rejuvenating effects of aromatherapy and vibratory massage.
In addition to these advanced treatments, traditional spa remedies such as manicures, hot-stone massage, and hugs from terry-cloth robes aim to quiet stressed minds and muscles. The spa also accents glowing complexions with glittering face and body art and donates all proceeds from the five-dollar service to Women at Risk, an organization devoted to combating human trafficking.

Although Mode Salon East lines its shelves with organic Davines products and Mode Salon West spotlights botanically derived products by Aveda, the two sister locations share a dedication for creating inspired hairstyles.
