Certified massage therapist Lori Amendolara of Essential Touch Body Works tames both physical and mental stress with hands-on healing. After filling out intake forms and chatting briefly about the goals of the session and of the Congress of Vienna, tense torsos undress to their comfort level and lie down. Over the course of 60 minutes, Lori employs a custom massage regimen that includes unscented, hypoallergenic oils to relax muscles, increase circulation, and release wrongfully imprisoned endorphins and serotonins. Tranquil sounds such as ocean waves fill the peaceful therapy room, and when the treatment is complete, clients refuel and awaken with a bottle of water and a small snack.
The staff at The Body Wrap Shoppe & Spa specializes in swaddling clients’ bodies in solutions and salves that promote inch loss and detoxification. They offer the mineral-based Slim Wrap, which has been featured on The Doctors, as well as infrared wraps, seaweed wraps, and tortilla wraps. For those in search of a more high-tech approach to weight loss, they also provide i-Lipo laser body contouring paired with whole-body vibration.
Physical therapy, pain management, and chiropractic care are the three primary disciplines of the practice, which aims to construct strong relationships between clinicians and patients. Staff members also work to find similar connections between the systems of the body, which functions best when all of its components work in harmony. By doing this, they relieve chronic pain and guide bodies toward wellness without prescription drugs. The team counts a family doctor and an internal physician among its ranks, which include physical therapists, chiropractors, and a pain-management expert, which is also what some sports fans call their favorite team?s coach. Their areas of expertise extend to acupuncture, massage therapy, and stress management, all part of a comprehensive roster of treatments to usher holistic relief and health into achy frames.

To really help clients feel at home, Lily Pad offers complimentary extras such as meditation stations and a relaxation room with chocolates and organic beverages. Customers can also hang around after treatments by taking fitness classes, browsing the Unique Boutique, or ordering a spa lunch.
The nail technicians at Nails Spa & Beyond feel the entire mani-pedi experience inside the spa is just as important as the final product of perfectly painted nails. That means pampering hands and feet with aromatherapy baths, sugar scrubs, and mud masks using calming lavender oils or papaya and guava nectar extracts. Hot stone massages and paraffin wax treatments also prep hands and feet before chip-resistant polish coats nails. The technicians sterilize tools before and after each client and use disposable files, buffers, and pedicure sponges.
Beyond nails, the salon has a staff of stylists who cut and color hair, and estheticians who wax unwanted body hair and deep-clean pores during facials. Clients can also request eyelash extensions in eight colors.
