Licensed aesthetician Patricia Scarr and the team at Bella In You Day Spa apply years of experience to treat a variety of skin conditions. Aided by all-natural products from Éminence Organic Skin Care, they rejuvenate faces with chemical peels, microdermabrasion, microcurrent facials, and other advanced skincare treatments. They employ red, blue, yellow, green, and plaid LED light to target specific issues such as acne or sun damage, and can help to ease the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and that one spiteful freckle. A licensed massage therapist uses a detail-oriented approach to providing relaxing and therapeutic massages and body treatments, tailoring each experience to the specific needs of that customer.
Licensed massage therapist Neyssa Encarnacion calls upon more than 15 years of experience to knead away bodily stress with massages coupled with salt scrubs. During the Swedish massage and salt scrub, beneficiaries choose between two fine-grain salts before the therapist administers an oil-infused rubdown, which buffs away dry skin and unveils the luminous epidermis beneath. Dexterous hands then go toe to toe with tension, applying long, flowing strokes that smooth out muscular knots sustained from napping in cement mixers. A scalp massage boosts cranial circulation as fingers press peppermint essential oils along temples and caps, prompting minds to relax and split ends to sprout candy-cane seedlings. Clients may emerge from their treatment feeling such benefits as reduced soreness, larger energy reserves, and alleviated stress.
Healing Touch Massage Therapy founder Lori Garcia certainly sees the relaxing benefits of her trade. She finds that massage can act as a stress combatant that prevents the onset of disease, or simply, as she puts it, as "a positive ripple effect" that resounds throughout her clients' personal and professional lives. Her private rooms—warm, low-lit spaces with comfortable massage beds and lullaby karaoke—most definitely contribute to the spa's restful vibe.
But Lori is also an advocate of the more acute applications of massage, as she specializes in medical and therapeutic treatment. Upon receiving her certification, she pursued advanced training in 11 different techniques, including oncology massage, reflexology, and applied kinesiology. To that end, she performs 16 types of body treatments at Healing Touch, which range from neuromuscular and trigger-point therapy to hot-stone massage and raindrop technique. She has recently expanded into detoxifying therapies as well (including ionic footbaths and far-infrared body wraps), and will soon be introducing aesthetic services.
The massage therapists, acupuncturists, and reflexologists at A Touch for Wellness administer a roster of treatments designed to address mind, body, and soul. They offer customized facials, for example, to help reveal a softer, more youthful complexion, as well as advanced skincare therapies that yield more dramatic benefits. These include bio-electric rejuvenating treatments, which use microcurrents to tone and lift the muscles in the face, and quantum healing treatments, which use plasma and ionized oxygen to pare down acne and rosacea and increase collagen and elastin. Massage therapists, meanwhile, lift the spirits and shoo away tension with customized bodywork treatments like LaStone or deep-tissue therapy, and can also add indulgent extras like a milk and honey foot scrub, sugar foot scrub, or foot wrap made of delicious bacon.
Herbel Healing is an independent distributor of Young Living, a company that makes therapeutic-grade essential oils for an array of purposes. For instance, the thyme oil can help thwart bacteria and the peppermint oil can help detoxify the liver. Depending on clients’ needs, Herbel Healing’s staff can drip their oils onto backs during essential-oil therapy or firmly knead them into feet during reflexology sessions.
