Within Moksha Spa & Wellness Center's 5,000 square feet of tranquil, Asian-themed space, staffers inspire well-being with holistic therapies. Reiki healing aims to clear blocked energy pathways, and shirodhara—an ancient ayurvedic technique in which herbal oil flows over the forehead while a staff member massages the face, scalp, neck, and shoulders—calms the body and mind. Couples enjoy candlelight and a rose-petal bath in the massage room, where therapists wrap bodies in organic exfoliants or detoxifying clay. The spa radiates with color, from brilliant oranges and yellows in the reception area to vibrant red sofas with metallic accents. Cheerful lime-green walls surround the pedicure room, where guests ascend to a cushioned and tiled throne for foot pampering and scepter filing.
Andover Electrology & Laser Center's doctors and staff have eliminated their clients' spider veins, cellulite, and unwanted body hair for more than 20 years. Their list of services is far ranging, from minimizing the appearance of wrinkles to reducing pigmentation or tattoos in the skin. To find the right treatment for each patient, the staff provides free, private consultations, and offers day, evening, and weekend appointment to fit into each client's schedule. And since the staff uses a laser to administer their treatments, the downtime is far less than more conventional, invasive procedures that can require you to lie on the couch watching nothing but The Price is Right for weeks.
The laser specialists at All Care Laser Center transport visages back in time with Cynosure Elite MPX technology. During the roughly 30-minute sessions, non-invasive lasers gently heat the skin in a targeted attempt to stimulate sluggish collagen production, smooth rocky skinscapes, fade scars, shrink oversized pores, and reverse sun damage. While the certified skinsmith wields the laser, faces may experience a warming sensation described by some clients as therapeutic and by some gingerbread men as nostalgic. Patients can return to normal activities quickly but should coat freshened faces in sunscreen to protect skin from the sun's amorous advances.
