Lorna Baxter is passionate about beauty and skincare and she has the certifications to prove it. A licensed aesthetician for over 15 years, she completed her skincare training at Florida College of Natural Health, but Lorna didn't stop there. She then went on to earn licenses as a massage therapist, cosmetologist, nail technician, and makeup artist, and she completed over 100 hours of study in traditional and advanced Thai medicine. She pulls from her impressive repertoire during traditional pampering treatments such as massages and eyebrow shaping, but she specializes skin treatments that target aging, hyperpigmentation, and acne scarring.

A full-fledged day spa, Massage by Design offers much more than its name might convey. Here, massage therapists practice uncommon modalities, such as Tian Di bamboo massage, in which smooth bamboo sticks are rolled across the back help improve circulation and alleviate musculoskeletal pain. Custom signature massages blend many modalities, including Swedish and deep tissue, to treat each individual's most pressing needs. But beyond the physical manipulation, aestheticians revitalize complexions with anti-aging facials and microdermabrasions. Mani-pedis beautify nails, lash extensions create lavish looks, and waxing gets rid of unwanted hair in a safer manner than leaning over a campfire.
