The staff of Montclair Therapeutic Massage Center doesn’t believe that comfort should come at the cost of environmental responsibility. Parking spots outside the shop hold places for fuel-efficient cars, and ADA-approved showers treat bicycling clients to a pre-massage rinse. The center’s certified massage therapist, Mary Wetherill, boasts a wealth of knowledge about human physiology that she gathered studying neuromuscular therapy, writing a book on treating diabetes with massage, and attending a pre-medical dissection course. With an advanced knowledge of the human body, Mary tends to bodies plagued by pains, migraines, and curved spinal alignment with a handful of massage styles. Her co-worker, Cristy May SyCip, leads relaxing restorative-yoga sessions, holding a single pose or a slow-paced snoring cadence for 3–10 minutes.
Sahana Spa's India-themed spaces mix modern amenities with the beauty of ancient Eastern wisdom. Handmade Indian artifacts, Sundãri skincare products, and several chocolaty colors welcome clients to the spa. Staff members then lead guests to treatment suites that are equipped with iPod-docking stations, individual temperature controls, and absolutely no bears. This is the perfect setting for them to knead away stress with indulgent bamboo and hot-stone massages or administer a Sahana-Vedic facial. Over in the nail lounge, technicians pretty up nails with various mani-pedis.
As a physician and the owner and medical director of Nu U MedSpa and Laser Center, Dr. Priyanka Gambhir takes the time to personally perform each aesthetic medical procedure at her center. Dr. Gambhir firmly believes that these procedures should work toward restoring patients’ natural beauty as opposed to reinventing an entirely new look. To accomplish this, she relies on clinically proven techniques and the most current med-spa technologies she can find, including Alma and Cutera laser systems and skincare products infused with powdered microchips.

The licensed body sculptors at Essential Body Contours help to smooth puckered stretches of cellulite with soothing FDA-approved Endermologie Lipomassage treatments. During each 40-minute treatment, a skilled technician employs the suction and massage capabilities of a mechanical module designed to boost lymphatic flow and circulation and tickle stubborn fat cells into releasing their precious lipids. Though most patients require at least 3–10 treatments for optimal results, local blood and lymph flow may increase up to 400% and skin-firming collagen production may improve up to 100% after a single procedure. As patients relax in the comfort of their specially designed Endermowear bodysuit, the healing strokes of the robo-treatment evoke a feeling similar to a deep therapeutic massage or a warm hug from a vacuum cleaner.
Along with enlivening the head-bristles of women, men, and kids with creative and corrective cuts, the team of stylists at Alicia's Hair Design keep the inside of their own noggins looking chic with continuous educational courses. The salon's junior and senior scissor-wizards remodel ponytails, cowlicks, and frayed cockatoo crests with cuts for women ($60+) and men ($30+) before topping off tufts with optional hair treatment add-ons ($12–$15) such as Keratin Shine and Volume Extend for extra durability and nourishment. Children (ages 1–13) can strut the playground in slow-motion with trims ($15–$45) or fast-motion with buzz cuts ($20–$25). Blow-dry styling ($30+) soothes frazzled fuzz with a flat-iron or hot-roller treatment, and updos ($75+) give prom-bound belles a place to hide emergency hairspray and fire extinguishers for emergency hairspray emergencies.
