Michele Silvernale is no one-trick pony. At her namesake spa, she caters to the unique needs of each individual client with an expansive repertoire of services that aim to soothe and beautify. And each treatment can incorporate a dizzying array of features, from naturally derived ingredients to hypermodern aesthetic technologies. Michele's range of facials include a traditional European service that nourishes skin with exfoliants up to the PBE Bio Visage facial that uses microcurrents to tone the skin and break up hyperpigmentation. Futuristic microcurrents are also used during body-toning sessions, which are designed to stimulate cellular metabolism and circulation with pep talks transmitted over subtle electrical frequencies.
Massage therapies inspire inner beauty by emulsifying stress with soothing techniques. Deep-tissue and cupping treatments pinpoint the sources of chronic tension, while therapeutic massage can incorporate a foot scrub and mask. The full-body scrub uses a blend of mineral salts and sugar, and a choice of body wraps infuses skin with detoxifying herbs, nourishing algae, or softening botanical mud.

The more intensive lastone therapy takes its inspiration from traditional Asian massages, targeting sore muscle groups with smooth heated and chilled stones. There are also a number of invigorating facial treatments available, including hydration facials that employ pomegranate and noni to clean pores and fight sun damage.
