An aesthetician gently scrubs a mixture of Dead Sea salts and moisturizing oil over a client's skin, revealing younger and fresher layers of cells; in another room, a massage therapist places heated stones onto tense muscles, dispersing the stress they've been harboring for months. Scenarios such as these are common at Evene Day Spa, where the staff specializes in both relaxation and beautifying treatments. The spa's menu also includes European facials which allot one hour to eliminate dirt and exfoliate to clear the pores. In addition to improving skin condition, the spa's aestheticians keep faces looking polished with permanent cosmetics for the eyes, eyebrows, or lips, leaving time in the mornings for more important endeavors, such as baking homemade Lucky Charms.

Total Life 360?s massage therapists melt tension with more than a half dozen kneading modalities, including trigger-point therapy and reflexology?all performed either in the soothing studio or at the home or office of clients. Swedish massages incorporate gliding strokes, graceful circles, and gentle taps. The intense, therapeutic pressure of deep-tissue strokes extract chronic pains and missing car keys from the muscle tissue?s innermost layers, and reflexology targets key points in the hands and feet in an effort to ease aches throughout the body. Other specialties of the studio's skilled therapists include hot-stone treatments as well as fitness training and nutritional guidance.
The experts at Fountain of Youth MD know that looking youthful also means feeling energized. In this spirit, their facials combat signs of aging, while also incorporating luxurious extras, from blackhead extractions to the eyebrow cleanup that prevents brows from growing into a sweatband. Their microdermabrasion also brightens complexions, buffing away the outer layer of dead skin with a diamond-tipped Viora Pristine apparatus. However, the face is not their exclusive focus?the team also fosters full-body wellness with acupuncture, chiropractic adjustments, and custom diet plans.
At Youphoria Massage & Wellness, a massage is more than a way to relax. Here, the massage therapist has extensive experience in alleviating chronic and acute muscular aches. She typically uses clinical evaluations to determine the massage modality that best suits each client's aches, choosing from neuromuscular, sports, and deep-tissue strokes to soothe them. She hopes that services end in "youphoria," which she defines as the feeling of health shared by your mind, body, and spirit.
Shamara Long believes that her massages and organic facials are more than just temporary escapes from life’s daily stresses. A licensed therapist and the owner of Serenity Place Massage Solutions, Long views her spa’s treatments as catalysts for healthy lifestyles. She draws on her committed faith-based background to rejuvenate and replenish, in her own words, "the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies."
To best nurture these four aspects of being, Long relies on an extensive treatment menu that targets the skin as well as its underlying muscles. Her bodywork specialties include Swedish, prenatal, and Thai massages as well as a Serenity stretch treatment, whose stretching and compression exercises help athletes to run and cartwheel over goalposts more effectively. Organic massage lotions and oils aid in these treatments, just as professional Éminence Organic Skin Care products enhance the slate of facials and peels. Although Long’s spa blossoms with warm lighting and earthy tones conducive to spiritual healing, she can also haul her massage table to bridal parties and corporate gatherings.
For more than 25 years, Dr. Alan Gardener has nurtured complexions at his namesake practice, which now spreads radiance even farther with a satellite location. At both offices, Dr. Gardner and his right hand dermatologist, Dr. Mike Kelleher, tackle a range of skin issues such as abnormal moles, acne, and rashes using advanced equipment and medical-grade products. Spa-like services include more than 10 facials that utilize thermal mud, natural fruit acids, and Eminence skincare products. Hands and feet are soaked, scrubbed, and masked during mani-pedis, which use highly sterilized tools and equipment, and unwanted veins, hair, birthmarks, and tattoos can be removed with a collection of lasers skin-matched paint.
