Named after the Greek word for me, em?na spa centers on the individual through a bevy of complimentary amenities, soothing d?cor, and pampering services. The doting staff stays true to the spa's namesake, ushering clients into one of six private treatment rooms for a revitalizing microdermabrasion or detoxifying peel accented by organic products, cutting-edge technology, and aesthetic know-how. Stylists at a full-service salon and nail technicians pore over features with attentive services that elicit youthful beauty. For full-body enhancement, massage therapists unearth tension through four modalities as licensed physician's assistants target unwanted hair and skin blemishes with GentleMax laser technology.

What are some of your most popular services? What do you think clients love them so much?
Clients love our deep-tissue massage because we go deeper than most therapists, we include stretching, and we guide you, in a tranquil voice, to take long deep breaths and use the incredible power of your mind to relax your body. In this way, the session is like a guided-meditation [session] in which you become a more active participant in your own therapy. Some clients who have suffered for years with chronic pain are amazed by the relief they get from neuromuscular realignment, which analyzes your musculoskeletal imbalances and stretches the core muscles that are pulling your body out of alignment.
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
We are literally a mom-and-pop operation. [Roxanne and I have been] married for 17 years and are both licensed massage therapists. Roxanne is also a licensed skincare specialist, and [I am] also a chi gong instructor.
How did you get started in the beauty industry? Did you have an "ah-ha" moment in life?
It started back in 2006, when [I] got laid off from [my] cubicle job and decided to get into a manual-labor career. Having always had a natural talent for massage, [I] returned to school and became licensed, initially in Dallas, Texas. Roxanne, after years of lessons from [me], also went to massage school and became licensed in 2008. [We] moved to Miami and got Florida licenses in 2011.
