Aesthetician Susie Roman has been a local force in beauty for more than 30 years, providing Ventura County and Bakersfield with licensed health and beauty services including facials, waxes, massages, and mani-pedis. Roman’s comfortable spa and tanning salon specializes in skin-friendly packages, each accompanied by deep exfoliation and a steam treatment. After clients have been moisturized, deblemished, and completely plucked of feathers, their treatments wrap up with a soothing neck and shoulder massage.
With more than 10 years of beauty-industry experience, massage therapist and aesthetician Christine Rasmussen knows aesthetic treatments inside and out. And at her beauty haven, Skin, she requires that her staff does, too. Together, the knowledgeable team of certified technicians creates a welcoming space where they personalize each skincare and body service. Aestheticians reach for skin-type specific Ayur-Medic and Dermalogica products to enhance the cleansing effects of facial or the exfoliating impact of a chemical peel or diamond microdermabrasion. This same attention to detail can be found during customized body treatments, which range from trigger-point therapy and lomilomi massages to a detoxifying body scrub made with sea salt or a sugar mixture infused with fruit, chocolate, and coffee ingredients.
Skin's dedicated team also provides mobile spa treatments and spa parties, both of which can be performed in the comfort of the client's home, office, or giant, walk-in makeup compact.
Simply put, Eric Charles has healing hands. These hands can perform a variety of massages that detoxify the body, prevent injury, and alleviate chronic discomfort. Rather than limit himself to traditional modalities such as Swedish and deep tissue, Charles stretches his skill set to accommodate Hawaiian-style lomilomi and Thai massages that apply gentle pressure to the body?s energy points. He also performs sports massages that break up tension with Swedish-style strokes and strategically placed knuckleballs.
In Touch Massage & Day Spa’s massage therapists and aestheticians have been relaxing and rejuvenating clients for two decades. The team’s massages melt aches from muscles and worries from minds with modalities that range from deep tissue, which targets knots and sore spots, to hot stone, which uses polished, hot basalt-lava stones to cut through tension and cold marble stones to flush the body and refresh the skin. For facials, aestheticians work with the client’s complexion, formulating each treatment to ameliorate excessive dryness or pores that have aligned themselves to spell out “Help!” As a spa boutique, In Touch Massage & Day Spa also stocks clothing and lingerie as well as products by Dermalogica, Environ, and SkinMedica.
Since the spa sits inside Spectrum Athletic Clubs at Thousand Oaks, guests have easy access to yoga classes, treadmills, a heated pool, and a eucalyptus steam room. Occasionally, though, the spa cuts loose from its foundation with its Spa to Go program. At events such as bridal showers or girls’ nights out, team members can deliver massages and herbal wraps to create great memories and reveal which friend is actually a robot in disguise.
Massages, body wraps, and facials augment the hair, makeup, and waxing services rendered by a team of stylists, therapists, and aestheticians. This galaxy of services has been built up over the course of 20 years, and the salon's ranks of stylists who administer them has grown to 50. The experts perform treatments such as the exfoliating, deep-cleansing European facial under the yellow glow of sconces. This lighting paradigm renders treatment rooms cozy and calming, and the framed artwork visible in common areas permeates the elegant spa with a manmade beauty to match its plant life-based natural beauty.
LA Bliss Spa's staff soothe tired skin and frayed nerves by providing a friendly environment where clients can let go of every concern except their need for pampering. Skilled aestheticians perfect skin with a menu of facials that includes custom exfoliation and pore-cleaning variations. Facials use products that diminish signs of aging such as lines and pigmentation in shades not in compliance with the official human color wheel. To purge the body of stress, the spa offers a number of different massage styles, as well as mud wraps and detoxifying body scrubs that are designed to provide unique results. Massage therapists unfurl tension and nourish frames with soothing oils while skin care professionals at the spa use Dermalogica products. Therapists also utilize the healing properties of heated stones to relieve muscle discomfort and release endorphins back into the wild.
