Trieva Katsandres was driven to start her own spa, and she did so in a single room in Mill Creek. It was so successful, she and her colleague Maysaa were able to expand to a commercial space that allowed them to hire other technicians and offer new services. By 2013, she'd claimed back-to-back titles as Best Day Spa from KING5.
Today, Trieva's Spa & Boutique welcomes clients to two locations, both offering a staggeringly extensive selection of aesthetic services performed by more than 30 employees. In the spa, massage therapists ply muscles with everything from hot-stone to Hawaiian lomi lomi massages, and aestheticians cleanse the face and body with custom facials and body scrubs. There's a hair and nail salon, as well as a menu of extras that includes makeup applications, lash extensions, and teeth whitening.

David Kadzielewski spent 15 years as a trainer and a manager in several big gyms. Over and over, he saw a pattern repeat itself: the gyms would become impersonal, customers would tire of mass mailings, and individual attention would be replaced with a one-size-fits-all approach to fitness. So David set out to do something different: he founded
Latitude 47 Fitness , whose comparatively smaller size and higher levels of personal attention help programs stay client-focused. The fitness side of Xhale features equipment, such as cardio machines and treadmills that can be bench-pressed, along with classes and personal training. Wellness experts also offer nutritional guidance. Spa treatments include massage and saunas. While parents work out or get a tan, kids can roam free in a supervised play area.

Owner and aesthetician Cortney Moody draws on more than a decade of experience to share her passion for skincare through custom treatments performed with natural botanical products and essential oils. A blend of products determined by a thorough skin analysis swathes faces to fight aging, reduce acne, or ward off dead skin cells. Her collection of facials fight specific skin concerns and add-on treatments employ ingredients such as baobab oil to reduce fine lines or vitamin C to revive ho-hum skin. The extreme lip treatment softens chapped pouts, and a collagen eye treatment unpuffs puffy eyes and sends dark circles to the space between Saturn's rings.

"[I like] helping clients feel better, so they can enjoy life with a few less aches and pains," says David Brown, owner of Elements Massage Alderwood. To that end, he often recommends clients sign up for an 80-minute session with one of the seven massage therapists in his employ. The sizeable chunk of time allows them to focus on particularly troubling areas of tension or pain, while still making sure to work on the rest of the body, as well. To David, the best compliment he or his therapists can receive come from clients noticing the benefits of their work: increased range of motion, reduced pain, and a diminished fear of how much hands look like spiders.
