Kitty Vink brings more than two decades of beauty experience to her work at Le Cheval Day Spa. As owner of this full-service oasis, she is well acquainted with skincare techniques, laser hair removal, and permanent cosmetics. It was on an educational trip to Hong Kong that she learned about the Chinese footbath—a 20-minute herbal steep followed by a 10-minute massage. This luxurious treatment can be found on the spa's extensive menu, which also includes ear candling, teeth whitening, and mani-pedis.
