It's not often that a spa visit can teach you something. At Beneath The Surface Spa, however, the staff is dedicated to providing what they call a "guided experience," in which they offer detailed reasons for each step of the treatment and explain the unique needs of their clients' skin. All of the aestheticians are trained in the Image Skincare system, a cellular approach to facial freshening that evokes healthy colors and textures with products that are free of parabens, petrochemicals, and preservatives. This commitment to conscientious and informative treatments extends throughout the spa, where clients can reach their beauty goals through facials, waxing, and nail services that glorify digits with Essie, OPI, and Creative Nails nail polishes.

For Epitome Style Lounge’s owner Raena, helping people look beautiful requires more than just a keen eye and skilled hands. She makes a commitment to stay up to date on beauty education, and has attended trainings on topics including precision wet/dry cutting, color correction, and certified color classes for such brands as Matrix, Wella, and Redken. She uses this training to craft new hairstyles at the snip of her scissors and to helm a talented and trained staff who join her in her efforts. Together, they straighten hair with keratin treatments and enhance features with makeup application. The beauty professionals also sculpt gravity-bullying updos for bridal parties and remove unwanted hair with waxing services.
Michael Olin studied massage at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, a school that takes a broad view of the subject. At his alma mater, Michael learned seven different modalities, which he now puts to use for his clients at Olin Heal Spa. He relieves stress and promotes blood flow with the gentle strokes of Swedish massage, or drills deep to relieve chronic tension or pain with deep tissue or trigger point therapy. Perhaps most unusually, he practices tui na, the principle form of Chinese medical massage. For this particular modality, he incorporates assisted stretching into his regular, hand-based massage techniques, with the goal of evening out the flow of energy through the body so that no particular organ gets an unfair electricity bill.
Nicole Wilkins, owner of Acupressure Massage Center of Morristown, trained in Thailand and studied at the Cortiva Institute before dedicating herself to bodywork. Now boasting a decade of experience, she leads a team of therapists who promote health and wellbeing through precision massage sessions. They untangle brawny knots with modalities such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massage, and target bodily systems with reflexology techniques and manual lymphatic drainage. Regular clients cite the sessions as the source of increased wellness indicators ranging from reduced stress and decreased anxiety to improved circulation and more accurate Stretch Armstrong impersonations.
Colon hydrotherapy offers a way to hit the body's "reset" button and give it a fresh start, all while potentially alleviating painful gastrointestinal symptoms. Luz Botero and Magda Zabala—the center's owners and certified therapists—put clients at ease throughout each treatment. After explaining the procedure during a preliminary consultation, they give visitors complete privacy and space to prepare. Relaxing music, videos, and candles in the treatment room help create a soothing ambiance throughout the entire experience. Clients are in complete control of the water infusion during their treatment, although the therapists will stop by every 10 minutes or so to check in.
