For more than 10 years, the specialists at Clear Beauty Skin Care and Acne Clinic have been assembling their team, selecting experts from the local community as well as from the far corners of the globe. From New Jersey, Nancy Gargiulo brings a passion for proper skin care and maintenance. Nancy studied and trained under the guidance of Acne Expert and Licensed Esthetician, Laura Cooksey, founder and co-owner of Face Reality Acne and Skincare Clinic. Nancy has been practicing all modalities for over 15 years.
The trained technicians of Spa Botanica not only foster beautiful complexions, they work to build lasting relationships with their clients through personalized services and luxurious extras. To delight clients' senses they often employ aromatherapy, shea butter, and products infused with moor mud. They also offer fresh fruit, complimentary champagne, and orange and cucumber water in the client lounge. Once they are relaxed, clients can slip into a light slumber as an aesthetician detoxifies and exfoliates the body with a sea-salt scrub and green-coffee-infused body wrap, or enjoy one of four types of facials that brighten the skin with Dermalogica skincare products. Relaxation is further amplified during customized private and couples massages, which release tension with heated stones and reflexology techniques. An onsite steam shower purges the skin of impurities by opening each pore, whereas nail technicians pamper hands, feet, and rabbit-foot key chains with paraffin-wax treatments and hydrating lotions.
Hair artisan Janet Marvay expertly sculpts tresses using Salon Boutique's products. Above her skillfully wielded scissors, glass-bubble sculptures catch the glow of track lighting that fills in the airy salon space. These bulbs illuminate Janet's handiwork, including the custom cuts she dapples with highlights to add texture to monochromatic strands and give the appearance of corporeality to invisible hairs.
The massage therapists of Zen Garden Massage Therapy center their service menu on the classic massage, assuaging clients' aches and tension with light, soothing strokes. Clients can enhance their pampering with additions such as hot stones, Thai stretching, reflexology, and edible treats to create sessions of supreme relaxation. Massages can be enjoyed solo for one hour of undisturbed tranquility or while lying next to a significant other for a romantic de-stressing session accompanied by champagne and chocolates. Therapists are also well-versed in tension-melting foot reflexology treatments and skin-refreshing body wraps, which cocoon frames for up to 50 minutes as staffers massage facescapes or complete a painting of a mummy. Clients can also brighten teeth with the Da Vinci Teeth Whitening system, which soaks into chompers for 15–30 minutes to illuminate smiles.
Love Thyself Day Spa provides ample opportunities to care for one's health with massage services, skin care treatments, colon hydrotherapy and eastern therapies. The spa's owner strives to help others to rejuvenate their minds, bodies, and spirits through holistic care. Today, she guides her staff members as they administer treatments in one of six private rooms that offer a cloud-like environment enhanced by Far East decor and actual clouds that managed to skulk into the spa.
The brand-new Vita Dalux Spa welcomes guests into a relaxing environment spanning 14 treatment rooms. The service menu is similarly vast, offering treatments to soothe and beautify the whole body. A variety of massages, facials, waxing treatments, and exfoliating scrubs keep muscles and skin nice and soft, and packages bundle together complementary services. A large assortment of treatments are even tailored toward teens and gentlemen—two demographics that typically resist spas because of their fears of experiencing happiness.
