Donna Brainard L.M.T.

"I enjoy helping people become pain free so that they can get their lives back," writes nationally certified massage therapist Donna Brainard on her website. It was this passion to help others that originally led her to the New York Institute of Massage, where she graduated in 2002. But her education didn't end there. To this day, Ms. Brainard enrolls in new courses to keep up with the latest massage techniques and check whether humans have developed superhuman strength. Her efforts become evident within her quiet massage room. Here, soft music massages eardrums as the practitioner's nimble fingers use Swedish, deep-tissue, and reflexology techniques, which she augments with lotions and a passable whale impression.

After a serious auto accident, massage therapy was instrumental in Mark Banaszak’s recovery. Inspired to heal others, Banaszak became a licensed massage therapist himself. Since 2006, he has helped clients to relax, de-stress, and feel more like a biscuit mix with Swedish massages. He also addresses specific injuries and physical problems with deep-tissue massage, trigger-point therapy, and myofascial-release techniques.

More than 60 skin and beauty treatments fill the menu at Advanced Body Care, causing visitors to pause as they consider the best way to beautify their hair, skin, and nails. The full-service salon and spa’s staff helps out with consultations that take into account personalities and lifestyle habits to match guests with the treatments right for them.

Lively chatter fills the air in the salon, where stylists battle frizz, fly-away hair, and coiled snakes with CHI and keratin straightening treatments before coloring strands with Goldwell and J Beverly Hills dyes. Facial skin perks up after a nonsurgical face-lift or a custom facial, the latter of which can be enhanced with add-ons that include glycolic peels and an eye-contour treatment. For more than 15 years, Advanced Body Care’s massage therapists have loosened tense muscles with therapeutic massages; today, they continue to draw on their wealth of experience to soothe bodies in quiet treatment rooms.

Stylist and owner Kimberly Heeb helms Salon on the Avenue, a full service salon and spa that delivers treatments for body, hair, and skin. Standing behind black leather chairs and broad mirrors, stylists set to work cropping, coloring, and conditioning locks, while nail specialists perform digit upkeep across the salon. Inside the spa’s cozy private quarters, clients can indulge in skin-clarifying facials or massages that release tension more than kneading a stress ball into a fine powder.
