Patricia Martorana’s wall doesn’t have enough space for all the framed certifications she could hang on it. The owner of Sun Central Skincare boasts dozens of them, each one proclaiming her an authority in one of more than 10 skincare product lines and a number of skin therapies. Instead of displaying proof her experience on the wall, the aesthetician reveals her knowledge through exactingly high standards, which are evident in the skincare products she chooses, such as the all-natural 100% Pure product line and Éminence Organic Skin Care—a completely organic line that uses no preservatives. Inside her studio, Patricia performs attentive facials, peels, and microdermabrasion treatments, all designed to diminish blemishes and recall the youthful glow that was stolen by a band of desperate fireflies. Body waxing and body wraps also leverage the staff's expertise to beautify the areas below the neckline.

Martisa and Stan had a problem with sinus pressure and congestion. When they discovered how much salt therapy helped that, they started dropping by regularly. They're joined by clients seeking treatment for respiratory and skin conditions that range from asthma to ear infections.
While at The Salt Room, visitors lounge in a tranquil chamber whose walls, like Liberace's favorite kitchen apron, are entirely covered with sparkling salt crystals. To multiply the therapeutic effects, state-of-the-art halogenerators emit a breathable saline dust made from pharmaceutical-grade salt and fresh, filtered air. As guests inhale deeply, NASA-inspired, zero-gravity recliners lift their feet slightly above heart level, reducing the strain on their spines as they nap or read. A children’s room entertains little ones with art and toys as they absorb the beneficial effects, and a third chamber hosts yoga classes. Deep-tissue and Thai massages enable clients to take in the rooms’ healing properties as the tension in their backs ebbs away.
Outside of its therapy rooms, The Salt Room continues to guide guests on their path to wellness with acupuncture sessions and skincare treatments. These rely on exfoliation, extractions, and vitamin-C peels to cleanse skin without relying on licks from salt-hungry deer.

In 2005, stress pushed Michelle McCormack to the brink of spiritual and physical collapse. Though her fast-paced finance job tested her limits, it had the happy consequence of awakening an interest in yoga, relaxation therapies, and holistic healing. Soon, she drew up a business plan and founded IHP Clinic Solution, a practice that serves the mind, body, and spirit of its patients. Today, at Aviva Health and Wellness Clinic, McCormack oversees the operations of wellness professionals who help patients become healthy inside and out.
Instead of just prescribing drugs or spoonfuls of sugar, Aviva's medical professionals thoroughly evaluate each patient. Then they recommend treatments that combine the best practices of conventional and alternative medicine. Medical services, including treatments for diabetes and heart disease, improve physical health, whereas spa and wellness services, such as acne treatments and body wraps, simultaneously improve looks and confidence. Treatments target a wide range of health- and beauty-related desires, helping patients lose weight, recover from illness, or reverse signs of aging.
Licensed massage therapist Amanda Howard first conceived of Crystal Blue Health Spa for a school project, and she realized her dream with the spa's opening in 2011. In the interim, she crafted a menu of soothing spa services, including massages, body scrubs, and facials. Amanda navigates the treacherous terrain of knotted musculature during Swedish, deep-tissue, hot-stone, and aromatherapy massages, which wheedle backs into relinquishing stockpiled stress, tension, and missing socks hidden beneath shoulder blades. For surface-level pampering, the spa's resident aesthetician treats visages to deep-cleansing facials and exfoliating body scrubs. The hot-chocolate scrub emulates its wintertime namesake with a sweetly scented, warm elixir infused with Giovanni PureOrganic Technology—an essential-oil medley designed to nourish and heal wizened pelts—and the hypoallergenic tropical scrub's jojoba, macadamia, avocado, and sweet-almond oils replenish thirsty pores more effectively than dunking them in a pool of Gatorade.
Growing up as a child in Iran, it wasn't unusual for Happy Farshid to see Turkish baths known as hammams. But when he came to America, they, like people who actually liked soccer, became significantly harder to find, according to the Orlando Sentinel. So Farshid decided to open one at his own spa, Shala Salon & Day Spa.
Shala's traditional Turkish bath surrounds guests with blue mosaic tiles imported from Italy, Moorish arches, and a domed ceiling. Guests take in their opulent surroundings while basking in the hammam's relatively gentle steam and lying down on a heated tile slab in the center of the room, where they typically receive a thorough massage and an exfoliating body treatment.
These immersive escapes are only one of the many options available to Shala's patrons. Stylists are also on-hand to design flattering new haircuts and weave honey-colored highlights into tresses. And aestheticians perform everything from waxing and basic facials using ?minence Organic Skin Care products to skin-rejuvenating photofacials and cellulite-reducing Endermologie procedures.
