Voted Best Day Spa in 2007 and 2008 by Orlando CityVoter, FawnFeather lavishes opulent spa packages on the stress surplused in an upscale yet bucolic setting. A 50-minute Swedish massage radiates micro waves of relaxation into the skin, releasing tension and replacing it with a warm, buttery sensation (a $69 value). Next, FawnFeather cleanses countenances with their signature facial, which gently pulls crabby elements from pores to leave skin soft and supple (a $75 value) in preparation for a personalized shampoo and style from a certified stylist (a $33 value). Your choice of either the signature spa pedicure (a $57 value) or manicure (a $23 value) caps the royal treatment by clipping, filing, and painting your digital keratin into multihued emergency lollipops.
As co-owners of Trend Studios Orlando, Matthew Bengston and Anthony Cortes have cultivated a business that reflects their own areas of expertise. Matthew brings his skills as a stylist to the hair salon, where he and his team cut men’s and women’s hair, add highlights, and lengthen locks with extensions. For his part, Anthony draws on his talents as a teeth-whitening and airbrush-tanning specialist to oversee those branches of the studio. Both Matthew and Anthony go out of their way to ensure a comfortable experience for clients: Anthony’s airbrush tans, for example, employ an Evolv. Sidekick tanning system that warms up its tanning solution before gently misting skin. For the spa services in which they do not specialize, Matthew and Anthony employ a knowledgeable staff that performs massages, waxing treatments, and a cappella renditions of the spa’s relaxing soundtrack.
At Integrative Physical Medicine, spinal treatments benefit not from the wisdom of one doctor, but from the whole chiropractic team's collective expertise. That's because each new case receives a team review, during which doctors customize treatment plans and plan their client's unique secret handshake. In addition to chiropractic services, a squad of licensed massage therapists employ five massage styles, including trigger point and prenatal, to reduce assuage stress and bolster overall health.
At Park Lake Health & Wellness, a team of seasoned, certified massage therapists restore vim and vigor to worn-down bodies through advanced therapeutic bodywork.

In addition to treating stress and pain, their massages can also alleviate symptoms of more serious ailments including carpal tunnel syndrome, migranes, and fibromyalgia.
Doctor of Chiropractic Darren Hollander takes his job seriously but not at the expense of having fun. This fact is evident upon walking into his office, where Batman, Justice League, and Invincible comic books and posters, many signed by the original artists, bedeck his treatment area—a departure from the clinical atmosphere and ice-chiseled treatment beds found in other offices. He also keeps a large collection of comics on hand for patients to browse and even borrow. But although the decor reflects Dr. Hollander’s interest in this genre, his real passion is in helping patients overcome chronic and acute pain.
Dr. Hollander's love for chiropractic started early in life. The first chiropractor he ever knew, his family's next-door neighbor, exuded such a zeal for life and health that Darren was later inspired to follow in his footsteps. Now ensconced in his own practice, Dr. Hollander prizes holistic methods over invasive procedures, believing, as he puts it, "The simplest solution is usually the correct solution." During exams, he checks the position of each disc before shimmying them into healthier spots through manual adjustments and a decompression table. Whereas many chiropractors stop here, Dr. Hollander branches out into the extremities, adjusting shoulders, knees, wrists, and faulty antennas.
Infinite Massage and Wellness tosses out the stress of the outside world and replaces it with six types of massages and a full menu of facial treatments. The therapists customize each massage to treat soreness or to help clients simply relax. Deep-tissue massages, for instance, help muscles recover with deliberate cross-grain strokes, whereas aromatherapy massages infiltrate olfactory passages with essential oils, easing clients into blissful states. Skin treatments, including Vi Peels and chemical peels, reduce age spots, clear acne, and smooth scars with a blend of salicylic acid, vitamin C, and minerals.
