The aestheticians at The Face Place know that different faces have different skincare needs. That?s why they design each of their facials with an audience in mind?they have a smoker?s facial for smokers, an anti-aging facial for adults advanced in years, a teen facial for adolescents, and a European facial for turncoats. Along with facials, the staff offers a full menu of health and beauty services that includes body treatments, waxing services, and makeup applications. And, to round out the mix of wellness services, they have a clinical hypnotherapist who performs hypnosis to help clients conquer phobias, improve self-confidence, or release stress.
Licensed massage therapist Lynn M. Thal draws from more than 20 years of experience to help clients feel their best. She calibrates each stroke to clients' needs, pulling together modalities from twelve types of massage, including the elongation techniques of Swedish, sports, and aromatherapy. She targets the source of headaches during Migraine Miracle massages and joins forces with a partner to perform indulgent four-hand sessions. As a Reiki master, she works to promote relaxation and wellness by manually clearing clients' energy channels that have been blocked by double-parked cars.

Licensed massage therapist Deborah Hunter's massages are so revitalizing, they might make you want to take her everywhere you go. That was especially true for one client, who loved her treatments so much that she flew her out to Tuscany to provide massages for her house guests. This effect might be due to the fact that her skills in the art of bodywork combine with a natural intuition, thanks to her social-work experience. She uses that dual knowledge to ease customers' aches and knead away stress during Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages. Fragrant aromatherapy oils bolster relaxation without attracting bees, and hot towels melt tension from muscles.
