Deep exhalations drift past the wood paneling, cascades of draped fabric, and hillocks of pillows in the treatment rooms at Beauty Essentials Day Spa. When not kneading the backs of clients, the staff takes a holistic approach to health and works to balance the body through energy work and biofeedback sessions. Aestheticians beautify patrons with facials, nail treatments, and waxing before video conferences with business partners and regular phone calls with psychics.
After working as a massage therapist for years in South Carolina and Utah, Kelleigh Jones-Coles used her in-the-field experiences and training in reiki, acupressure, and medical massage to open Terasu Wellness Studio. Kelleigh pampers clients with services ranging from massages to facials to body wraps. Named after the Japanese word for "illuminate," the spa features candles whose flickering flames shine light as clients relax or recite haikus in pig Latin.
Jeff Scott conceived the idea for Escape Massage Center while vacationing in Hilton Head. He fell in love with the beauty of South Carolina’s seaside towns and decided to expand his successful massage practice, which includes three offices in Massachusetts, to the state. Though he resides in New England, Jeff visits each branch of Escape Massage Center every few weeks to see clients and help them practice their JFK impersonations. When he’s away, his licensed massage therapists take the reins on all deep-tissue, pregnancy, and hot-stone massages.:m]]
