When Elle ? A Clinical Day Spa first opened in 1997, its therapists specialized exclusively in massage. But soon, they saw that what the average guest needed most was not a standalone massage appointment, but an immersive, multifaceted experience that could undo the stress that bombards them on a daily basis. Owners Leigh Shaw and Polly Tabares, who have experience in the spa industry and the fields of dermatology and plastic surgery, rethought their approach and expanded their services into both traditional spa therapies and med-spa treatments.
Today, Leigh and Polly oversee everything from body wraps and facials to Botox injections and prescription skincare. They also maintain a stash of products for at-home care, stocking lines such as Dermalogica and bareMinerals by Bare Escentuals. For frequent guests, they coordinate VIP memberships that offer perks such as service discounts and massages that harness the rejuvenating power of phoenix tears.

Dr. Shao-Hao Cheng treats patients with neck and back pain caused by poor posture, car accidents, and sports injuries. His techniques vary depending on the treatment; sometimes he relies on small instruments to realign the spinal column, while other times he uses his bare hands to soothe muscles. The massage therapists on his team know plenty about that, as they also use their hands to relieve chronic pain with Swedish and deep-tissue techniques. Dr. Cheng and his staff also work with patients to prevent future injuries, offering nutritional guidance and advice on how to build a posture-enhancing sleep nest.

Siobhan Robinson is a personal trainer, a licensed massage practitioner, and a certified Level II fascial stretch therapist. Her diverse skills culminate at Athletic Stretch Therapy, where Siobhan offers stretch therapy, which provides the benefits of yoga and massage by stretching the muscles and the fascia, a network of soft connective tissue that clings to the body’s muscles. Occupational stress, age, poor health, and fitness habits can thicken the fascia, leading to stiff joints, poor posture and circulation, and inability to hide in a carry-on suitcase. Siobhan reverses these effects and fosters relaxation by taking her clients through a series of therapeutic stretches that help restore range of motion.
