Essentials Massage & Facials' Spa professionals relax weary bodies with a collection of therapeutic services. Soothing massages employ a collection of kneads, strokes, and manipulations to reduce tension and disentangle body knots, with luxurious add-ons such as paraffin treatments and aromatherapy. The skin-savvy techs also rid frames of unwanted stubble with waxing services, smooth out wrinkles with chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and soften countenances with professional skincare products during facials.
Although a medical doctor and nursing staff oversees the treatments at Success Weight Loss & Medspa, the atmosphere feels nothing like a doctor’s office. Operating under the belief that medically based beautification shouldn’t involve stress or discomfort, the center’s team supplements services, such as custom facials, bikini waxing, and nonsurgical weight-loss treatments, with relaxing elements including shea butter cream and hot towels infused with essential oils.
But Success Weight Loss & Medspa’s services aren’t all towels and butter. For instance, professional-grade ingredients revive tired complexions during facials, glow peels, and rejuvenating eye treatments. While clients kick back and relax, those ingredients get busy retexturing skin, drawing out oils, and erasing dark spots shaped like bull’s eyes, which attract cream pies. Success Weight Loss & Medspa also offers services such as customized airbrush tanning and teeth whitening.
After losing her young daughter to a nervous system disorder, Molly Snow chose to dedicate her life to helping other families to overcome the physical and emotional consequences of medical conditions. Her experiences with unsuccessful surgeries and medical procedures steered her away from that field and toward alternative, non-Western therapies. While training for her massage license, Molly encountered craniosacral therapy for the first time. “As soon as I heard about it and took my first class,” she recalls, “I knew that I had to commit myself to it full time.”
Molly’s initial attraction to craniosacral therapy was based on claims that it could help relieve major neurological issues. By applying gentle pressure to blocked sites, she learned, a therapist could potentially rekindle communication between nerves. After training further and witnessing her patients’ relief, Molly became convinced that this therapy could have saved her daughter’s life.
This powerful knowledge continues to inspire her work at Neos Massage. Clients of all ages and conditions visit her for light bodywork treatments, during which they can remain fully clothed. A holistic healer at heart, Molly strives to “bring the outside in” by leaving a window open.
While massage services are available, including Swedish and relaxation modalities, Lady Grace Beauty Spa offers many other services as well. A loop of thread and deft fingertips are all that's required for the threading process, a hair-removal technique that removes even minute hairs without irritating the skin. Parul, owner of Lady Grace Beauty Spa, creates clean, flattering brow-lines using the method. In addition to hair removal, Lady Grace also offers a full range of spa services that beautify the skin and soothe the muscles below it. Dermalogica facials combat skin issues such as acne, wrinkles, or Sharpie tattoos, and henna body art or eyelash-tinting treatments turn up the dial on natural beauty.
Over the last seven years, Donnette has developed a deft hand when it comes to treating chronic neck and back pain. She's also seen how stress can eat away at a person's health if left unchecked. At her perch within For Me Med Spa, she uses therapeutic massage techniques to help her clients slip into a state of deep relaxation. Finding tranquility can be harder for some than others, which is why Donnette gives her clients plenty of time to relax and settle in, and why her treatment room is actually a giant conch shell where you can hear the soothing ocean.
Keeping client satisfaction at the forefront of its mission, the Avalon Med Spa and Laser Center recently underwent a complete overhaul that included acquiring the award-winning G.M. Collin product line, as well as a new therapist, physician, and staff. A medical director and board certified-internist leads a team of professionals, including one member with certification in aesthetic medicine, and special training in medical informatics. The wide-reaching expertise of its staff enables Avalon Med Spa to deliver a varied menu of aesthetic services that includes everything from laser hair removal to teeth whitening, Botox, and body wraps.
Devoted to bettering the patient experience, the center also nestles clients into a relaxing environment replete with plush couches and a waiting lounge done up in warm, neutral tones. Hardwood floors lead clients back to a private treatment room, where the elegant décor relaxes with furnishings such as draped, olive-green curtains, frosted sconces, and a wall waterfall that trickles out droplets harvested from the fountain of youth.:m]]
