At Escape Massages, an experienced and licensed massage therapist specializes in a variety of modalities. Therapeutic, relaxation massages target areas filled with tension or stress, and hot-stone massages send gentle heat into muscles. Other techniques include Swedish, prenatal, Thai, and scalp, hand, and foot massage.
Back in the 1960s, beauty was so simple that some beauty parlors—like the nine traditional ones run by Robert Andrew Zupko—only had one service: roller sets. But beauty trends began to change, so Zupko changed right along with them, adding skincare and nailcare to his hairstyling business. When 1996 hit the calendars, the salon evolved into a full-fledged day spa that covered 7,000 square feet.
Zupko has since created Robert Andrew – The Salon & Spa, a 22,000-square-foot Tuscan-style getaway nestled in the giant scalene triangle that connects D.C., Annapolis, and Baltimore. Inside the salon, more than 90 beauty professionals—including nail technicians, massage therapists, and stylists—shape and polish nails, snip split ends, and disentangle achy muscle knots. The salon also boasts a troupe of Yon-Ka trained aestheticians who remove dead skin cells with pumpkin enzymes and melt away frozen funny faces with hot-stone facials.
More recently, Zupko opened Robert Andrew Medical Spa, where the spotlight's on lasers, injectables, chemical peels, and other high-tech skincare services.
Toscana Medispa fits right in at its location in Baltimore's Little Italy. The spa not only embraces an Italian vibe in its decor, which consists of cream-colored walls, faux columns, and painted Tuscan landscapes; it also hints at its heritage by peppering its service menu with treatments such as espresso massages and facials. Since the spa, like the trademark of the phrase "stomach pain," is owned by a medical doctor, it's also able to offer such clinical services as Zerona laser fat reduction and Botox injections.
Laser Body Sculpting, LLC specializes in trimming inches from one of the most stubborn problem areas: the tummy. The center's LED therapy-based lipo, non-surgical lipo, and laser lipo procedures target fat with lights and lasers, draining cells of the fatty acids inside them with minimal discomfort to the patient. These treatments reduce the appearance of cellulite and trim down waistline circumference for an overall leaner figure. Most patients see a reduction in dress or pant sizes within 42 days of the treatment.
When Dr. Caryl Mussenden was six years old, she knew she wanted to become a doctor. After studying at Howard University's College of Medicine and holding residency at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, she realized this dream. Beginning as a board-certified OB/GYN, Dr. Mussenden taught young women the basics of self care, eventually transitioning into opening her own gynecological and med spa practice, Liposculpture by Design.
In 2006, Dr. Mussenden created the Medi Spa division to welcome clients looking for spa services and laser work. And today, along with her dedicated staff, Mussenden helps men and women achieve their aesthetic aspirations through customized dermal filler injections, chemical peels, laser hair removal, body wraps, and Jade therapy.
