A member of the Green Spa Network, Body del Sol Medical Spa tends to clients with medical-grade services enhanced by organic products. Inside the spa's bright, energy-efficient facility, staff members renew epidermises with facials, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion treatments, as well as laser hair-removal sessions that target follicles with deep-penetrating light pulses. Techs also revitalize the body with head-to-toe scrubs and an array of massages designed to soothe tense backs and shoulders sore from supporting well-fed parrots.

Aesthetician Kelly Carlson approaches skincare and brow shaping with the meticulous detail of a Swiss watchmaker––a fact suggested by her company's gear-inspired logo. Before every facial, a complete face mapping enables Kelly to identify what makes each client’s complexion tick, and during 20-minute MicroZone treatments she tinkers over specific issues such as blackheads or tired eyes, and repairs broken-out faces in no time at all. Her custom brow shapings utilize a three-point, five-line method that sculpts fringe in line with the natural contours of the face and favors fullness over the skinny, over-waxed brows worn by most modern day silent film stars.
Since graduating with honors from The Aveda Institute, Kelly has gone on to acquire an Expert certification from The International Dermal Institute. She invests her skills in products with potent ingredients and noninvasive technology, including Clarisonic brushes that break up deeply imbedded grime with gentle ultrasonic frequencies.
From rehabilitating muscles after an injury to giving a stressed client an hour of instant R & R, Neva Massage Center’s licensed massage therapists are led by certified therapists Leonid–trained in both Europe and America– and Iryna, a medical doctor in Russia. They tailor a range of modalities to every sort of need. Their classic long and smooth Swedish massage shoos away stress lingering between muscles, like a vacuum cleaner shoos away a dog that loves a good dirty carpet. They apply deep-tissue therapy’s concentrated pressure to injuries or points of chronic pain, whether in the head, neck, or back. Neva's therapists can also target muscle spasms, insomnia, edema, and depression with their meticulous kneads. They take relaxation a step further with hot stones, warm towels, and therapeutic scents, and they lengthen their clients’ “me time” with 90-minute extended massages.
