Miriam Figueroa, a holistic wellness counselor, licensed massage therapist, and aesthetician, spent more than 20 years in the health and beauty industry, staffing five-star hotel spas and then founding her own luxurious center, Spatini Holistic Health. Her spa specializes in M’lis wellness programs, treatment packages that reduce stress and target specific ailments—from cellulite to arthritis—by drawing on the interrelations between mind, body, and soul.
A suite of traditional spa treatments flanks the holistic programs. Facials run the gamut from deep cleanses to nonsurgical face-lifts. Seven available styles of massage encompass the gliding strokes of Swedish and hot-stone massage, which the ancients discovered using stones warmed by confused mother chickens. Body polishes exfoliate away dry skin, an ideal prep for a botanical Bronze Biologic formula that leaves behind sunless, natural-looking tans.
The licensed and trained team at Glow Hair Salon & Spa transforms exteriors with quality products in a classic yet contemporary atmosphere. Inside the salon, stylists create new looks with cuts, highlights, and straightening services featuring the botanically based Pureology line. Spa specialists reinvigorate skin with anti-aging facials for both men and women and employ glo therapeutics formulas during custom peels, which exfoliate away dead skin cells accidentally accumulated during late-night séances. Massage therapists soothe weary muscles within the electric-blue walls of Glow's new location, whose grand opening was celebrated in late 2011. Glittering chandeliers and an antique-style dresser juxtapose harmoniously with modern black leather sofas that harbor a secret love of big-band music.

The dedicated massage therapists at 8 Spa Massage knead stressed sinews with traditional Chinese massage strokes and nutrient-rich organic lotions. Ease into a 60- or 90-minute session that undulates between light pressure and deep-tissue kneadings through the use of chi-gong. This ancient Chinese approach focuses on energy, helping the body heal from illness and long naps inside the washing machine. Torso tamers use acupressure points, rubbing, and muscle tapping to relax the body and assist in restoring its natural balance. The treatment's unscented organic lotion soothes the skin and senses with hypoallergenic goodness in the form of jojoba, shea butter, sesame oils, sunflower, and chamomile.

Licensed acupuncture practitioners Joanna Lei Shelton and Molly McMichael gently stimulate acupuncture points with fine filiform needles in treatments targeted to each client's specific health concerns. Patrons relax on comfortable tables nestled in quiet, private rooms with individual temperature controls that keep patients comfortable and able to continue pranks on Arctic explorers. The session lasts between 60 and 90 minutes, depending on the client's health concerns, and the practitioner draws on extensive experience to tenderly insert the sterile, disposable needles, which stimulate trigger points. The acupuncturist communicates with the patient during the process to keep the treatment as pain-free as possible and cause only sensations of tingling, pressure, or light quilting.
