Individualized attention is the name of the game at Ageless Skin Solutions. Massage therapists take the time to consult with clients, and aestheticians thoroughly analyze the skin with assistance from the sun-damage-detecting Visia machine. Staffers then carefully select the appropriate massage lotions or skin products and thoroughly explain each service in detail. The team uses only noncomedogenic ingredients and pure pressed oils discovered during years of researching product lines and conversations with houseplants. Skincare experts personalize treatments to focus on specific concerns, such as acne, hyperpigmentation, or fine lines, and employ innovative anti-aging processes including microcurrent technology and LED phototherapy. Exfoliating enzymes and diamond-based microdermabrasion sessions banish dead cells and include a complimentary massage of the face, neck, shoulders, and décolleté.
After aromatherapy-filled full-body massages, staff members direct rejuvenated guests toward the relaxation room for hot green tea or fruit-infused water and a light snack. The boutique-style reception area greets guests with elegant chandeliers, and treatment rooms cosset eyes with soft candlelight ideal for crafting a shadow-puppet version of The English Patient.
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and hair-removal services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
Everything about Embrace Massage Wellness's private suite facility screams relaxation. Or rather, whispers. From the warm-colored walls to the soothing sounds of ocean waves that flit through the air, Embrace was designed with serenity in mind. Massage therapist Roni Spillane doesn't take walk-ins. Her appointment-only scheduling ensures that her massages take place without the distraction of other guests, loud noises, or strobe lights that rolled away from a nightclub. In addition to massage, she pampers guests with bodily treatments and scrubs, specially designed spa packages for men, and facial- and eye-treatment add-ons.
Tina Marie Nawn helps restore her clients' comfort and range of motion with massage services that include a special interest in magnetic-resonance stimulation and quantum biology. She helps alleviate chronic pain and improve circulation with a range of massage modalities that includes deep-tissue, prenatal, and stone-therapy techniques.
Tina also hosts workshops and trainings in quantum biology—a school of thought that applies quantum mechanics to biological processes, resulting in treatments such as magnetic-resonance stimulation, which jump-starts the body’s own waves and tunnels electrons to help repair and heal the body.
