Lorrie Eyberg's first massage experience sparked something in her. She eventually enrolled in massage school, a move that led her to one day create Achelois Wellness Massage & Spa. Eyberg named the studio after the Greek word achelois, which means "she who drives away pain." At her studio, Eyberg and her staff perform therapeutic massages in a candlelit treatment room to the accompaniment of soft music that never features a chorus of yowling alley cats. This relaxing atmosphere paves the way for a tension-melting massage, which they often supplement with clinical techniques that Eyberg says spur detoxification and strengthen the immune system.
Tropez Aveda Salon and Spa splits its 4,000-square-foot facility right down the middle, dedicating itself equally to both sides of its name. From head to toe, the company's staff caters to each client's appearance, health, and relaxation, oftentimes turning to Aveda products to aid in fulfilling that mission. In the salon, stylists snip and rearrange hair, and nearby, nail stations refresh hands and feet. Massages, facials, and hydrotherapy treatments join forces to blitz stress in the med spa, which combines medical precision with relaxation more effectively than playing a game of Operation in a hot tub.
