Q&A with the Owner

Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?

Every facial includes a hand and foot massage with a special aromatherapy blend. We also start each facial with a wonderfully relaxing 15-minute cleansing face, neck and shoulder massage. This softens and readies the skin for the treatment to follow.

What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?

The most common beauty mistake people make is not washing their faces properly and skipping the wash either in the morning or night. Often the wrong products are used as well. 70% of your skin care regimen is what you do at home, with the right products specially designed for your skin type and skin condition. Cleansing your face morning and night with the right cleanser (no soap please) is essential for healthy, beautiful skin. Massage your cleanser in for at least one minute and rinse with tepid water - it will plump your skin and prepare it for your morning or evening regimen.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

People are often confused about how to take care of their skin and what products to use. We encourage our clients to come in for a skin care consultation, if time or money does not allow for a facial. Our mission is to find the right products for each individual client and help them set up a skin care regimen for their budget.

As a young girl in the Philippines, Jennifer Willis watched and took notes as her grandmother helped friends overcome chronic pain with a combination of massage, energy healing, and ancient medical herbs. She carried those memories with her to the United States, calling on them for inspiration as she spent time as a certified nursing assistant before earning a license to practice massage therapy.

Though far removed from her birthplace and the grandmother who first piqued her interest in holistic healing, The Healing Room represents the culmination of Jennifer’s medical journey. A cottage-style building obscured on the outside by a veritable forest of trees and bushes, the center opens its front doors to reveal a lobby decorated with salt lamps and silk throw pillows. The lush foliage outside presses up against the windows of the private treatment rooms, where Jennifer and her team of certified massage therapists, acupuncturists, and reiki healers restore bodies to factory-fresh conditions. Bask in a facial and footbath or surrender your muscles to therapist and martial-arts professional Lowell Noble, who breaks up tension with targeted pressure and deep-tissue karate chops.

Susan Renaud?s healing abilities stem from a lifetime spent developing a natural insight and intuition in regards to the well-being of others. From athletic pursuits to teaching, she has always found a way to empathize with and assess the source of pain in those around her. Today, through spiritual healing, she aims to enhance the lives of her clients by manipulating the natural flow of energy through their bodies.

Susan?s process employs energy healing at the cellular level, meditative regression, and other techniques to help to soothe physical ailments. More intuitive than an airport scanner, Susan probes inside the body to heal on physical and spiritual levels. Remote healing also helps Susan to unearth bodily complaints from afar or from beneath couch cushions. Once established, healing programs can include a variety of remedies from exercise and dietary changes to meditation and herbs.

Because Victoria Gagnebin is treating the body, she follows the same standard that doctors do: first, do no harm. She practices this mantra by only steeping skin in natural and organic products, thereby sparing clients exposure to chemicals that can take their toll over time. Victoria primarily works with products from Osmosis Skincare, a line that encourages cellular regeneration, but she also handpicks favorites from the collections of other natural skincare companies and the medicine cabinets of grizzly bears with great skin. These elixirs fuel a succinct selection of treatments; face and body waxing joins four facials named after different phases of the moon.

During massages, Lea employs techniques such as hot-stone therapy, deep-tissue work, and Thai massage, which incorporates yoga-type postures and stretching. Additionally, she teaches self-care classes for people with insomnia.

The staff at The Fifth Avenue Spa showers clients with a repertoire of soothing treatments amid white leather couches and swaying sprays of cut flowers. Décor characterized by shades of sand lets accents of purple leap from sunset photographs, blooming orchids, and images of flying people-eaters gracing the walls. With contented sighs drifting free after massages and body wraps, patrons shutter electronic devices so as not to break the relaxing spell. The intimately lit treatment rooms make eyelids increasingly heavy and delight off-leash shadow puppets during waxing treatments and facials.
