Licensed aesthetician and massage therapist Sigita Wendorf leads the staff at The Body Shop Day Spa in crafting spa treatments more relaxing than a lullaby duet by Yanni and Enya. Several massage modalities, including reiki and reflexology, relieve muscle tension, while facial and body treatments soothe skin. A fireplace in the waiting room casts shadows on vases full of blossoms, and throughout the spa, the walls showcase images from nature, such as fog-obscured trees and beach turtles playing Marco Polo.
At her skincare studio located inside 7 Day Spa, aesthetician Rose Rodriguez enhances the health and appearance of her clients' skin with rejuvenating facials and waxing services. Two facial options—a luxurious hour-long deep-cleansing treatment, and a 30-minute express version—leave complexions clean, smooth, and hydrated. For a more noticeable effect, her diamond-tipped microdermabrasion treatment helps to reduce the look of fine lines, enlarged pores, and acne scars without a harsh spray. She extends her services to the rest of the body with body and facial waxing, and her signature back facial, which grants clients' hard-to-reach back areas with a deep cleansing, extractions, and a gentle massage.
From facials to microdermabrasion, the staff behind The MedSpa at Dermatology & Plastic Surgery Associates enhance appearances with a wide spectrum of treatments. Their medspa offerings include chemical peels, laser resurfacing, and beauty injections, which combat dermal imperfections and signs of aging without going under the knife. Licensed aestheticians and techs conduct all medspa treatments, and are able to answer all questions from patients about the treatments, while also giving a pop quiz about content from the waiting room's magazines.
Elite Rehab Institute’s chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, and physical therapists may not share the same specialties, but they all have one thing in common: a belief in the efficacy of holistic medicine. At each of the clinic’s six locations, staffers work together to relieve aches and pains caused by conditions such as stress, asthma, and arthritis. Their multidisciplinary approach ensures care from multiple doctors at a decreased cost as well as access to advanced treatments. Chief among these treatments are active-release technique—a soft-tissue massage that relieves pain in overused muscles—and the four-step ideal-protein weight-loss program, which helps shed pounds by stabilizing blood sugars and injecting muscles with daily shots of helium.
At Sweet Retreat Pre-Natal Massage, Dee's treatments aren't limited to just moms. A licensed massage therapist, she has provided general massage treatments such as aromatherapy massage since 2004. She focuses tailoring services to the client, performing a phone or sit-down interview prior to massages.
As a mother of three, Dee also understands the gift that pregnancy can be. That's why she specializes in prenatal massage, a modality that eases the physical, hormonal, and mental stressors of pregnancy, such as having to decide how many deep-friend pickles are too many. Understanding the havoc pregnancy can wreak on a woman's body, her prenatal massages assuage back pain and nausea, boost blood flow, and trigger the release of endorphins.
