Licensed massage therapist Adil Panton, the mastermind behind Healing Arts Touch, uses energetic touch to move his clients toward calm, health, and well-being. More than two decades of experience and training in Eastern practices guide both his hands and his practice, which focuses on five types of massage and on qigong, a Chinese approach to self-healing that incorporates focused breathing and meditative movement. Panton uses intuition to personalize his massages in a holistic manner, helping his clients heal not only their bodies but also their minds, spirits, and exoskeletons.

Timea Tokes’s built her 20-year career on the belief that what touches your skin matters. At Timea’s European Skin Care, she and aesthetician Andrea Kramer put that belief to practice by judiciously choosing the tools and products that power their facial and waxing services. For example, their signature facial revitalizes skin with ingredients from Éminence Organic Skin Care products, and the Repêchage facial adds moisture back into parched surfaces with multiple layers of European seaweed. The spa duo also dabbles in tech-savvy components, including the FSD microphototherapy’s light and heat energy and the Bio-Ultimate firming facial’s microcurrents and robot tears.
