With products from Sothys and Bioline in hand, the beauty specialists at Mountain View Facial Beauty enhance clients’ natural glow.

Waxing treatments strip skin of unwanted fur, while massage services tenderize the muscles underneath. Clients can alter their look more dramatically with permanent make-up, slimming body wraps, and weight-loss treatments that don’t involve running laps around a Great Lake.

To complement these massage treatments, he also clues clients in to potential pain points created by daily lifestyle choices.

The therapists also perform full-body treatments, such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages, which they can combine with reflexology for a soothing head-to-toe experience.
