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.
Family Massage owner Andrea Voegeli honed her craft in her native Germany and then in Switzerland before touching down on American soil to unburden tense bodies. With a specialized focus on women struggling with infertility or the physical discomforts of pregnancy, the licensed therapist administers deliberate strokes that utilize creams, lotions, and oils in order to encourage reproductive self-healing. She also silences the tense muscles of all genders with Swedish massage, and calls upon her role as part of the FSMTA sports-massage team to alleviate physical aches resulting from injuries or the mental anguish of being mocked by a Jumbotron. True to her business's name, Andrea also welcomes infants and children to her pristine facility for therapeutic massage.
Emily Polatas, licensed massage therapist, softens knotted muscles with a combination of techniques customized to fit each client's needs. During each 60-minute session, Emily soothes back and neck soreness with the long strokes of Swedish massage. The gentle kneads of deep-tissue rubs increase circulation to tender muscles, ease tension, and relax anxiety, and targeted pressure breaks up knots like dynamite in a hammock factory. Clients can customize their session, whether choosing to unwind after a tense day with a gentle rubdown or working out muscle kinks leftover from long runs or accidental discovery of one's personal emergency brake.
