Licensed aesthetic educator and med-spa vet Carrie Napiorkowski begins every skin treatment with a detailed skin analysis, a steam-assisted deep cleanse, an exfoliation, and an intensive hydration. Pharmaceutical-grade skincare products stand at attention in Carrie's arsenal, Moor Spa's all-natural, petroleum-free salves among them. The spa's roster of services ventures beyond visages to make backs tingle with enzyme treatments, soften signs of wrinkles or discoloration on hands, feet, and old leather purses with chemical peels, and even tone tushes with the Firming Fanny facial.
An oversize sign effervesces from the roof of Pink West's low-slung cottage, where a lush pastoral view rife with stunningly moisturized songbirds unfolds from wicker porch furniture. Inside, a crystal chandelier loops from the ceiling and softly lights the wooden floors and antique armoire of a genteel treatment room.
Owner Luisa Velasquez-Lopez's multitalented staff of stylists and aestheticians approaches clients with a wealth of technical expertise and practical experience. Attentive stylists take each client's vision to heart to craft runway-worthy manes for men and women with a comprehensive repertoire of haircuts, conditioning treatments, and coloring services. Aestheticians pamper visages with an arsenal of hydrating masks chock-full of wholesome ingredients—including milk, honey, and European seaweed—to leave visages looking as youthful as Dorian Gray's baby pictures. A massage therapist wicks away muscular stress with soothing Swedish techniques, listening to clients’ needs before delivering full-body relaxation or kneadings focused on one particular problem area.
Supervised by an on-staff medical director, Cara Bella Studio's staff brings its A game to rejuvenate entire bodies with massages and med-spa treatments. Trained massage therapists wring tension from muscles to reduce stress and widen range of movement and also prop up postures by whispering pep talks to vertebrae. Nonsurgical med-spa services such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments aim to liberate facescapes from fine lines, and teeth whitening and eyelash extensions amp up smiles and winks, respectively.
The series of professional massage workshops brings couples closer together by imparting professional techniques that can be practiced at home. Learn to pamper your partner in a basic couples massage workshop ($65 / couple) that reviews Swedish massage techniques and how to strengthen bonding through nonverbal modes of communication other than high fives and pantomime. Each one-hour group workshop includes a maximum of six couples and focuses on a specific body region such as the neck and shoulders; back; arms and wrists; legs and hips; or hands and feet. Customers may combine five Groupons to register for the entire workshop series, which, like an efficient mummy dressing, covers all areas of the body. Grouponers may also enroll in the Beginner Reflexology & Foot Rub 101 class ($65 / couple), where participants will learn the history of reflexology along with basic techniques that help relieve exhausted human hooves.

With nearly 30 years of experience as well as training in South Africa under her hands, licensed therapist Cheryl McIlraith unties muscles and invigorates soft tissue with an array of massage services. The Swedish massage uses medium, gliding pressure, and the deep-tissue delves farther into subdermal tissue to draw out embedded tension with firm, cross-grain strokes and a whistle only muscle knots can hear. Smooth, heated river rocks banish tightness and regale muscles with stories about mischievous Huckleberry Finns in the hot-stone massage. Alternatively, acupressure massage targets key points across the body to unblock energy pathways. Muscles recovering from physical exertion and injury get a boost from the sports massage, which also helps athletes achieve the flexibility needed for the most competitive of chess matches.
