At Serenity Source Massage, a thought-provoking sign greets visitors as they enter. It doesn’t tell them to merge, stop, or yield to leaping dolphins. Instead, it challenges them to better their lives with one bold word: “simplify.” To fuel the simplification process, licensed massage therapists help muscles let go of stress, tension, and stiffness. Signature 80-minute massages tether the body to the mind with a custom blend of flowing strokes, acupressure, and trigger-point therapy complemented by warm towels and soothing heat packs. Add-ons such as a scalp massage or a foot sugar scrub promote blood flow to boost energy and facilitate healing. Chiropractors can help target pain sources with careful adjustments and exercises that cultivate mobility and strength.
Dianne Ciprano knows the benefits of a good education. The skin specialist trained at both the Gloria Francis Institute of Beauty and the New York Institute of Beauty, perfecting the skills that she now uses every day at When Style Counts. When she isn’t cleansing pores or softening skin with seven types of facials, Dianne continues to brush up on the latest spa techniques through continuing education courses at Dermal Institute in NYC. One thing she has learned is not to skimp on products. That’s why she reaches for professional Repechage serums as she tailors her treatments to soothe sensitive skin or cover up exposed circuitry.

At Visage Skincare Spa and Cosmetic Laser Center, a highly trained staff cultivates beauty and wellness with relaxation services and anti-aging treatments.

More high-tech than a horse-drawn spaceship, a Visia imaging system guides complexion analyses, measuring sun damage and hyperpigmentation to help technicians build custom skincare plans. The spa also doubles as a party destination, where revelers can indulge in champagne and hors d’oeuvres between facials and massages.
