Don't be fooled by its tranquil atmosphere and invigorating scents—Natural Balance LLC is no day spa. Owner Trish Eastwood and her team of seven certified therapists possess years of training in therapeutic massage and take a serious approach to their profession. Each no-nonsense massage incorporates ample communication in order for the specialists to ease their clients' particular knots and painful spots with deep kneads, gliding strokes, and nimble fingers. To enhance relaxation sessions, steamed towels, hot stones, and aromatic essential oils warm the muscles and invigorate the senses much like a nap in a bread oven.

When Sharon Zilahy established Refresh Rejuvenating Spa, she hoped to channel the elegant, high-end spas she had frequented in her journeys beyond her small town. She chose a space adorned with checkerboard floors and white crown molding, and pumped up the opulence by adding Victorian-inspired lounge seating and framed art. Of course, image isn't everything, which is why she culled skin, hair, and cosmetic products from locales overseas, stocking her shelves with formulas from Kérastase Paris, Face Stockholm, and Sothys, a Parisian line of clinical skincare serums. Sothys plays a role in many of the spa's facial treatments, including the Secrets de Sothys—an anti-aging regimen that includes a facial massage and a silky application of anti-wrinkle serum. In the salon area, hair stylists craft new looks with cuts and color, along with styling treatments at the dedicated blow-dry bar. In private rooms, massage therapists unearth tension through their soothing strokes. The spa even features a host of male-centric services such as men's facials, beard trims, and grey-blending treatments.

Though her ability to untie knots rivals that of a sailor, licensed massage therapist Lorna Ellis-Harding has been relieving aches and pains for long enough to understand the limitations of massage. Rather than rely solely on her Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports techniques, she draws from other areas of traditional and alternative medicine to craft treatment plans for the whole body. Her acupressure massages, for example, incorporate the principles of Eastern acupuncture to apply healing pressure to specific points of energy across the body. When she isn’t balancing energy or coaxing out toxins with gentle lymphatic-drainage techniques, Lorna consults with other local businesses to help her clients manage their weight and make healthful lifestyle decisions, such as refraining from eating french fries while juggling chainsaws.
