At Shea Essence Day Spa, the noise and stress of the outside world melt into the spa's signature organic shea butter. The product exemplifies the business' core belief: that beauty and wellness go hand-in-exfoliated-hand. Aestheticians use the body product during treatments such as the Herbs and Organic Shea Butter Deluxe Manicure or the Back Facial Treatment. During both, the shea butter exfoliates and moisturizes skin, rendering it healthier and more youthful looking.
Other treatments eschew the shea butter for hydrating creams, mud body wraps, or body products designed for specific clientele, such as men or expectant mothers. The spa also houses an infrared sauna where infrared heat travels deep within the body to promote blood flow and a detoxifying sweat.
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 waxing 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.
Whether employing a well-trained pair of hands to soothe tense muscles or a state-of-the-art laser system to remove unwanted hair, the specialists at Beauty & Body Wellness Spa strive toward a common goal to promote beauty, confidence, and well-being. Licensed massage therapists and medically trained personnel work side-by-side in their endeavor to help clients flourish inside and out. Cosmetic services such as skin tightening or spider-vein treatments allow for supple, unblemished contours worthy of being shown off at the beach, and a weight-loss specialist stands ready to help clients slip into yesterday's pants or use ski poles as cover during bouts of hide-and-seek.
