Bobbie Salang has explored the science of bodywork from several anatomical angles. As a licensed massage therapist, nationally certified personal trainer, and holistic health coach, she channels 20 years of fitness experience into services at Sevenlakes Massage & Body Therapies. However, she and her accomplice Chrissy Excell—both members of the American Massage Therapy Association—aren't satisfied with stagnant resumés. They continue to augment their knowledge by attending courses whose credits exceed their licensing requirements, all for the sake of their business's professional and peaceful ambiance.
Bobbie and Chrissy hope to spark sustainable change in their clients' lifestyles, whether they are customizing a massage to thwart pain or offering dietary guidance to thwart rival coworkers from deep-frying your lunch while your back is turned. Bobbie's passion for Pilates fuels group classes and personal-training sessions, whose core-strengthening effects can complement her kneading treatments and benefit physiques from top to bottom.
At Aria Skin and Laser Spa in Chapel Hill and Somalase in Sanford, Medical Director Dr. Ajay Ajmani oversees a team of tech-savvy aestheticians who beautify and protect the epidermis with facials, laser treatments, and massages. During microdermabrasions, a skilled technician employs a diamond tip to control the seven seas and exfoliate the upper strata of damaged skin, revealing a youthful acreage of epidermis. Laser treatments for pigmentation correction, hair removal, and skin tightening enlist powerful YAG lasers to beautify the epidermis. Facials reinvigorate visages with an eye treatment, custom mask, neck-and-hand massage, moisturizer, and a restraining order against the sun.
Enjoying a glass of wine or a day of pampering at the spa are both choice ways to unwind. That's why a free glass of wine complements all of the revitalizing services available at Fine & Wine. Experienced skincare consultants conduct individualized pampering sessions, including soothing achy muscles with massages, rejuvenating hands with beauty treatments, and softening skin with satin products.
Massage Express’s founder, Alicia Tolliver, recognized a need for what she calls “me” time, especially for those too busy to make it into the spa. She now brings the spa to the comfort of her clients’ homes or the silence of their favorite library aisles as part of her business’s traveling branch. The recently renovated Fayetteville studio also welcomes clients into a private treatment room, where Alicia employs pain-relieving deep-tissue strokes or the relaxation of her signature massage, which unites stress-busting Swedish kneading with the rhythm of lomilomi massage.
Kalon Mind & Body Day Spa takes its name from a Greek word that means beautiful. The practitioners here strive to promote the philosophy that beauty is more than skin deep, and they help that inner beauty glow with treatments that cover the body from head to toe. Regular and Shellac mani-pedis leave hands and feet softer than a pillow's whisper. Enriching Aveda products enfold faces during facials, designed to exfoliate the skin with steam cleaning and extractions and to help clear away acne. And mud wraps, back-exfoliation treatments, and cellulite-reduction treatments ensure that the rest of the body feels equally lovely. The staff is also trained and experienced in assisting the elderly and disabled, and will travel to elderly or disabled clients' homes at no extra cost.
