At Serenity Source Massage, a thought-provoking sign greets visitors as they enter. It doesn’t tell them to merge, stop, or yield to leaping dolphins. Instead, it challenges them to better their lives with one bold word: “simplify.” To fuel the simplification process, licensed massage therapists help muscles let go of stress, tension, and stiffness. Signature 80-minute massages tether the body to the mind with a custom blend of flowing strokes, acupressure, and trigger-point therapy complemented by warm towels and soothing heat packs. Add-ons such as a scalp massage or a foot sugar scrub promote blood flow to boost energy and facilitate healing. Chiropractors can help target pain sources with careful adjustments and exercises that cultivate mobility and strength.

The licensed epidermis professionals at The Spa 4 Skin challenge blemishes, wrinkles, and unwanted hair with a full array of laser systems, technology-based therapies, and custom facials. They perform skincare therapies such as clay masks, microdermabrasion, and DermaMax and DiamondTome resurfacing treatments, which rejuvenate visages and can slough off the tomato residue caked on from standup performances. Besides face-focused treatments, the professionals cater to bodies with the soothing, nutrient-rich misting of DermaLife spa jet and Swedish or deep-tissue massage. In addition, unwanted follicles are disabled during laser hair removal.
Desiree Chmura was a featured aesthetician at the 2010 Aesthetic Everything Oscar Gifting Suite, and, as she pampered famous pores before the Academy Awards, she realized she wanted to open up her own med spa. She's trained in a sweeping array of medical-grade skincare and cosmetic disciplines and has advised listeners on Cosmo's XM radio show on how to reduce inches with a seaweed wrap and how to ensnare a crush with a pair of tweezers.
To create her spa, Desiree corralled a staff of nurses and aestheticians. With treatments that range from deep-cleansing facials and ear candling to dermal fillers and photofacials, guests of all beautification goals can find a service right for them.
Recently under new ownership, Bellissa Spa and Studio corrals licensed aestheticians, massage therapists, and medical professionals to beautify clients inside and out. Their wide array of services range from basic cleansing facials and nail-preening to laser hair removal and medical-grade peels. Warm earth tones welcome visitors for hair services towards the front of the salon, while those visiting for Dermalogica facials can head back to one of the dimly lit private rooms in the rear of the studio.
