Healing Waters Health Spa & Salon boasts a unique formula, but the secret ingredient is talent rather than an obscure essential oil or imported cleansing mud. The salon’s trio of massage therapists banishes bodily tension, subjugating it with light strokes or focused pressure. Estheticians work on whitening teeth, sculpting nails, or smoothing skin with organic facials. The skills of seven hair stylists and colorists round out the salon’s robust repertoire of services. The staff not only trims and colors hair, but also adjusts skin's hues with tanning and spray tanning.
What would be the point of treating pain if the cause of discomfort is allowed to continue? That's the central question behind the method at LaFrance Wellness, where most courses of treatment begin with a thorough assessment to reveal underlying habits or problems with posture. Only then will the team begin to use a variety of techniques—which include lymphatic drainage, Swedish massage, and alignments—to treat the ailment.
Dr. Daniel Bellingham and his team of physicians specialize in cosmetic treatments with the aid of modern medical techniques and natural, plant-based solutions. At Dr. Bellingham's Cosmetic Laser Center, they operate Laser Genesis machines, which use light to erase fine lines and smooth out rough or red skin. Alternatively, therapists perform rejuvenating and purifying facials with aid of seaweed, mud, and other ingredients.
The nurse practitioners at Spindale Family Laser & Cosmetic Center brandish a Candela 1064 Nd YAG laser to keep skin free of unwanted marks and textures. The machine’s cryogen cools skin as the laser pulses, which keeps the client as comfortable as possible as the light erases hair, visible veins, acne scars, or stretch marks. It also helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, tightens skin on faces and necks, and smoothes beard bumps. The clinic also provides Botox services and products by VI Derm. Like the Candela machine, VI Derm's facial peel helps erase hyperpigmentation, freckles, and shadows that don’t go away when the sun comes out.
After being laid off from his engineering job, Nelson Berry decided to open Stonehaven Massage & Spa. Now, more than two years later, Berry presides over a Stonehaven location that is as luxurious to lounge in as a private jet parked in a giant jacuzzi. In the stonework lobby, flowers cluster around mirrors and pitchers of lemon water. Murals of waterfalls and oceans signal the themes of each treatment room, where clients can relax during massage modalities ranging from traditional Swedish to deep tissue massage. From there, aestheticians can take over with facials or waxing services.
