Kitty Vink brings more than two decades of beauty experience to her work at Le Cheval Day Spa. As owner of this full-service oasis, she is well acquainted with skincare techniques, laser hair removal, and permanent cosmetics. It was on an educational trip to Hong Kong that she learned about the Chinese footbath—a 20-minute herbal steep followed by a 10-minute massage. This luxurious treatment can be found on the spa's extensive menu, which also includes ear candling, teeth whitening, and mani-pedis.
Crystal Fulco spent six years in the U.S. Navy as an electronics technician before she decided to start over in a career that fit with her passion for human connection. Although she only intended to work her way through college as a massage therapist, she found herself drawn to the practice and decided to commit to it fully. With only three months of professional experience, she founded her own practice, a place where she could focus on using deep-tissue, neuromuscular, and myokinesthetic techniques to treat subdermal aches and pains without surgery, medications, or costly seismograph examinations.

In the gym, Crystal’s personal-training sessions teach women how to sculpt their bodies with invigorating and empowering exercise regimens, sending them on their way to total wellness.
A lobby decked out with leather chairs, stained wood, tiles, and flowers greets visitors to Massage Bliss & Day Spa, preparing them for a spa visit that melts away the stress and responsibilities of the modern workday. Soft, low lights and gauzy curtains hang over heated massage beds, and two candlelit couples-massage suites surround pairs in a sensual glow during romantic anniversaries or ill-advised first dates. Deep-cleaning facials flush out clogged pores and stimulate blood flow with natural ingredients, such as apple pulp and flaxseed, and aromatic salts and coconut oils soothe digits during spa mani-pedis. The day spa's arsenal of sophisticated technologies beautifies and rejuvenates bodies, with its infrared sauna detoxifying and purifying skin and its TriActive laser smoothing out dimpling and cellulite.
Picasso Day Spa & Salon takes its name from salon founder David Manaute's favorite artist. In many ways, the stylists channel the painting paragon by treating their clients as though they were canvases, using haircuts, color, waxing, and airbrush tanning to achieve an artistic personal aesthetic. The team makes its process collaborative, though, soliciting input from clients when coming up with a style, unlike Picasso—he pretended not to hear the things his canvases said. Their services take place in a building as equally beautiful as the custom looks they craft for clients. The spa's decor showcases a European atmosphere, and reproductions of Picasso's artwork hang on the walls.
