At Avi Day Spa, fitness experts, facialists, and massage therapists join forces to soothe clients with treatments based on Ayurveda––an ancient healing science that aims to bring body, mind, and spirit back into balance. Fifteen different styles of massage, including shiatsu, ashiatsu, and Swedish, help alleviate aches and clear mental fog. Body treatments can include hydrating essential-oil wraps or scrubs made from 40% honey, which helps make the body more receptive to topical oils and herbs and irresistible to cartoon bears. After rejuvenating facials or microdermabrasion, aestheticians also impart long-lasting allure with permanent-makeup services or grace limbs with continual smoothness courtesy of laser hair removal, waxing, or electrolysis.
When it comes to footwear restoration, the experts at Cobbler’s Bench Shoe Repair don’t just go through the motions. Instead, they put in the extra effort to return each pair to a like-new condition, a quality instilled by the company’s founders, Charles and Sara Stern, in 1946. All repairs are completed within three days and use equal or better materials than the original manufacturer, which helps protect shoes from environmental damage and teasing from snobby loafers. Cobbler’s Bench also maintains an offsite plant with special equipment to carry out particularly complicated repairs.
