An outdoor heated mineral pool beckons guests at the Garden Gate Day Spa, but its appeal lies in more than just its smooth surface. As visitors slip beneath the surface, underwater music floats gently into the eardrums. Similarly soothing details pop up throughout the spa: a rain shower and dry saunas stand ready in the women's changing room, an aromatherapy room engages the olfactory system, and luxurious spa packages encourages all-day visits.

Time may be short before Doug Stevens' next client, but he can always find a moment to talk shop. "I love helping people," he declares. "Helping people look better, feel better. That's the most satisfying thing." Doug has been a nationally certified massage therapist and aesthetician for 15 years, specializing in a process he devised to reduce the appearance of cellulite while relaxing the whole body. The technique combines an endovibratory device oscillating at 35 times per second with ultrasonic heat and his signature bodywork methods. "After the cellulite treatment, the skin is firmer, the appearance smoother," he explains. "People generally really like it, so they'll rebook."

Before receiving certification in Las Vegas in 1997, Doug was in the construction business as a general contractor. But it wasn't giving him what he wanted. "I was looking for a profession that was less stressful, where I could help people. I wanted to be more hands on. And my friends always came to me for massages, so I decided to go into that." Over time, he's added other treatments designed to improve the mood while boosting beauty, such as a photon antiwrinkle light therapy.

Doug describes his studio as very relaxing, with low light and smooth music. Though the ambiance has an undeniable pulse-slowing effect, it's the treatments' results that he credits for his return business. "Some of my clients have been coming every week for six years," he says. "Only the wealthy can usually afford treatments like these. That's not the case here. I want people to focus on how good they're going to feel."

Keith West-Harrison can't squeeze his job title on one line of a resume. Yes, he's an aesthetician. But he's also a lifestyle coach, celebrity beauty advisor, humanitarian, and self-proclaimed "eco-urban shaman." In 2009, New Mexico Business Weekly included Keith's name on its annual "40 Under Forty" list, celebrating his entrepreneurial excellence and achievements at his airy, urban spa, Great Face and Body.

Amid gleaming hardwood floors, international decorations, and lots of black leather, the team at Great Face and Body caters to the skin needs of all ages. Specialists freshen frontages with both preventative and restorative facials, ranging from 20-Something treatments to the None-of-Your-Damn-Business facial for clients 60 or older. Services employ only organic and sustainable beauty products, which Keith and his posse develop and handcraft in the store using many locally cultivated ingredients. The spa also integrates 5,000-year-old Native American, African, and Ayurvedic wellness principles to provide a challenging tongue twister to any reporters who stop by for interviews.

Inspire Salon

first opened its doors in 2006 to provide downtown Albuquerquens with a refuge from the busy city streets, a place to relax and pursue beauty. The stylists use Bumble and bumble products as the main ingredient in that pursuit, washing, conditioning, and styling hair with them. Other team members focus on sculpting and polishing nails, while aestheticians smooth and sooth skin with facials. They enhance the results of their treatments with professional make-up application. Though they treat their salon as an escape from the world outside, they know that sometimes clients can't afford to take a break from work. They offer all of their guests complementary access to their Wi-Fi network, so they can continue to work or troll fellow commenters while getting a pedicure.

Since 2010, the team of trained aestheticians and certified massage therapists at Mia's Day Spa have been rejuvenating the bodies of clients with their menu of soothing treatments. Massage therapists reduce muscle tension and remove errant darts from backs during Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages, while dehydrated digits rest inside warmed, nourishing paraffin baths. A slew of facials treat skin with ingredients such as mint julep, olive oil, avocado and anti-oxidant-rich grapefruit extract. Dead-Sea-salt, brown-sugar, and coffee body scrubs increase circulation, decrease the appearance of cellulite, and enhance possibilities of being licked by a hungry kitten.
