A graduate of the Pennsylvania School of Muscle Therapy, owner and operator Lauren Nelson leads a team of three other muscle therapists, Amy, Brendan, and Linda, as they turn down tension levels and subdue stress at Touch of Health Massage Therapy. Therapeutic, sports, myofascial, Swedish, reiki, shiatsu, and hot-stone massages are all key players in the team's quest to relax the body and relieve tension by quieting tight muscle bands and their incessant rock 'n' roll music. Beyond using massage to treat maladies ranging from fibromyalgia and arthritis to sports injuries and carpal tunnel syndrome, Lauren also completed a muscle-therapy course at Hofstra University with a focus on oncology, allowing her to address the particular therapeutic needs of clients with cancer.
After a career in the tattoo industry, Mandy Sauler, who's known for her steady hand and ability to create fine lines, turned to permanent makeup and founded Captivating Cosmetics. Today, she employs seven years of micropigmentation experience and has worked with all kinds of skin types and ethnicities to create natural-looking eyebrows, lip color, and eyeliner, as well as camouflage scars, birthmarks, and outdated SAT cheat sheets. Mandy's teammate, Theresa Weston, draws upon her three years of micropigmentation experience and her background as a makeup artist working with industry leaders such as Clinique, Bare Escentuals, and Origins.
When Dr. Watson founded Vivify Medical, he wanted to create a clinic that used preventative methods to enhance its clients’ quality of life rather than waiting to treat symptoms once they become sick. Today, his staff keeps this motto in mind while administering physician-grade services, such as a variety of weight-loss-management programs, addiction-related treatments, and bio-identical hormone therapy that aims to slow signs of aging. In addition to medical services, the clinic assuages skin with aesthetic treatments including microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
The staff at La Paz Salon blends beautification and relaxation with their lineup of hair and massage treatments. Stylists work closely with clients to craft classic, modern, or cutting-edge looks, snipping away loose ends, styling fetching updos, and softening hair with conditioning services. The staff also makes a concerted effort to educate their customers, leaving them with the know-how to recreate the salon look or do algebra right. La Paz Salon also keeps a colorist on board who can add dimension and eye-popping new hues with all-over color, highlights, and corrective treatments.
Candles shed soothing light in Lavenders Body Care Clinic’s dim treatment rooms, kindling a calming ambiance where relaxation can thrive. In addition to nailcare and spray-tan services, the licensed aestheticians, cosmetologists, and therapists lend their skilled hands to massages, facials, masks, and body wraps. The clinic’s spa rituals merge individual services into super packages enhanced with raw and organic products including lavender, milk, honey, and wild peanut butter.
Backed by 29 years of beautifying tradition, Pour L'image combines exhaustive product knowledge with an astute eye and passion for polishing skin. The spa's full-service epidermal renovation, which spans 75–90 minutes, can be adapted for all skin types thanks to a comprehensive analysis of problematic areas. After an impurity-purging cleanse and refreshing hydration treatment, aestheticians cater to each visage's unique demands with microdermabrasion or a chemical peel. A light massage then tends to stressed facial muscles, knotted necks, and stress-soaked shoulders, with the epidermal detailers capping off the indulgent stay by upping hydration levels around the eyes and décolleté area.
