She may offer a spectrum of services?facials, massages, waxing?but Lana Tokar certainly has a specialty. The veteran aesthetician works tirelessly to battle the signs of aging inside her namesake spa, employing all the tools and tricks garnered through her more than 17 years of experience. One such tool?the HydraFacial?is a favorite in the celebrity community, enjoying the same popularity as strongly worded letters to the academy. Using a combination of cleansing, exfoliation, and hydration, the treatment effectively diminishes acne-causing dirt and oil, or grants aging skin new life in the form of a smoother complexion.

Lana also doles out nine other facial treatments, and a slew of slimming body wraps laden with organic ingredients, such as seaweed and peppermint. Clients leave waxing sessions smoother than an oil slick, and armed with any one of Lana?s own beauty products, such as a pineapple enzyme scrub or makeup remover.

Having planned and executed massage therapy for the Tennessee Titans and competitors in the Rock ?n? Roll Marathon, the muscle menders at Athletic Edge know how to help the body recover from physical trauma and athletic exertion. Their highly individualized treatments pull from more than 15 modalities?soothing muscles with gliding Swedish strokes, targeting the deeper connective tissue with neuromuscular therapy, and even combining salutary techniques to treat the underlying causes of aches. Although the gentle or directed kneading can have a distinctively relaxing effect, the therapists specialize in jump-starting clients' natural healing processes and helping them overcome the soft-tissue pains that athletic activity, auto accidents, and full-contact charades can cause. The studios also partner with chiropractors and physical therapists to form a one-stop treatment center for athletes, with particular modalities complementing the strains incurred by particular sports.
