After a car accident left Kelly Kreis with a painful neck injury, she found relief through a combination of Western medicine and holistic healing techniques such as massage and acupuncture. Today, Kelly works to bring others the same relief at Renova Therapeutic Massage. Drawing on her background as a registered nurse and a licensed massage therapist, she performs treatments that range from relaxing Swedish massages to treatments that target connective tissues and central nervous system with CranioSacral therapy.
The licensed epidermis professionals at The Spa 4 Skin challenge blemishes, wrinkles, and unwanted hair with a full array of laser systems, technology-based therapies, and custom facials. They perform skincare therapies such as clay masks, microdermabrasion, and DermaMax and DiamondTome resurfacing treatments, which rejuvenate visages and can slough off the tomato residue caked on from standup performances. Besides face-focused treatments, the professionals cater to bodies with the soothing, nutrient-rich misting of DermaLife spa jet and Swedish or deep-tissue massage. In addition, unwanted follicles are disabled during laser hair removal.
For the past decade, licensed massage therapist Jodi Werner Ramoska has sharpened her skills at various local spas in the area. She now harnesses that experience as the head of Massage Source, where she offers a curated menu of treatments that include Swedish, reflexology, and medical massage. For any massage, there are optional add-ons, too: the therapeutic scents of aromatherapy; the hot stone therapy, which helps to further relax muscles; and a peppermint sinus treatment, which helps clears out sinuses and makes everything smell like Christmas.
Recently under new ownership, Bellissa Spa and Studio corrals licensed aestheticians, massage therapists, and medical professionals to beautify clients inside and out. Their wide array of services range from basic cleansing facials and nail-preening to laser hair removal and medical-grade peels. Warm earth tones welcome visitors for hair services towards the front of the salon, while those visiting for Dermalogica facials can head back to one of the dimly lit private rooms in the rear of the studio.
At Fingers From Heaven, licensed acupuncturist and massage therapist Connie Tjaden can tell what's going on inside the body without seeing an x-ray. Drawing from more than two decades of experience, she taps into the body's meridians?its energy pathways?which point to the source of imbalances and illness. Once she's zeroed in on the source of the problem, she administers her signature massages and acupuncture treatments?both of which are designed to be as relaxing as they are healthy.
Dianne Ciprano knows the benefits of a good education. The skin specialist trained at both the Gloria Francis Institute of Beauty and the New York Institute of Beauty, perfecting the skills that she now uses every day at When Style Counts. When she isn’t cleansing pores or softening skin with seven types of facials, Dianne continues to brush up on the latest spa techniques through continuing education courses at Dermal Institute in NYC. One thing she has learned is not to skimp on products. That’s why she reaches for professional Repechage serums as she tailors her treatments to soothe sensitive skin or cover up exposed circuitry.
