The Healing Body Center focuses on rejuvenating minds and bodies with slimming, anti-aging, and therapeutic massages. Therapists customize massages by drawing on a range of healing modalities including deep tissue, sport, senior, and oriental—a blend of Thai, Yumeiho, and Shiatsu techniques. In the studio’s treatment rooms, radio-frequency machines and glycolic acid wait to reduce fine lines and soften the skin texture of faces that have been pressed gleefully against the window of a sandpaper store. LipoSlim devices purr in other areas of the salon, beaming painless lasers at unwanted fat cells.
Aviva Yunger firmly believes that proper skincare is key to leading a healthy life, much like exercising regularly and eating nutritious foods. The seasoned aesthetician helps clients attain healthy skin with an array of skincare treatments, from deep-cleansing derma deep facials to rejuvenating clinical-style extraction facials. She performs customized treatments that can accommodate a variety of different skin types, even offering a specialty facial designed for men. Aviva also extends her beautician expertise to waxing services that remove hair from faces and bodies.
The aestheticians at Fresh Faces bolster their facials with products from Skin Fitness Therapy, professional-grade potions that meld natural ingredients with scientific formulas. This is part of the progressive approach they take regarding skincare treatments, which are customized to address each individual?s particular skincare needs. Along with facials, the staff performs microdermabrasion and skin-exfoliation treatments to eliminate dull, lifeless skin cells on the face. Airbrush tanning services quench skin with a customized, nourishing bronze glaze while organic peels packed with fruit enzymes reveal younger, smoother-looking surfaces. Those looking to contour unsightly curves can try the Venus Freeze system, which tightens skin while minimizing the appearance of fine lines. Downy robes and complimentary beverages help clients relax and wind down during their treatment of choice.

All services come with a steaming cup of organic herbal tea, a complimentary scalp massage with a hot towel and aromatic oil, and a hand massage with Aveda Hand Relief cream. Hardwood floors encourage posttreatment sock skating, and chrome-and-leather chairs provide the ideal furniture for games of pretend spaceship piloting.
Therapists at Massage Isles & Wellness Center soothe backs with seven massage styles that target such concerns as sports injury, soreness from pregnancy, and daily aches and pains. Therapists work with clients to customize the classic massage so that it concentrates on areas of tension and avoids touch-sensitive jack-in-the-boxes within muscles. Sports massage restores flexibility and range of motion after injury or athletic strain, and Swedish massage melts away muscle pain as it stimulates circulation using gliding effleurage strokes and percussive pressure. The warmth of hot stones penetrates deep into muscles, uncoiling knots so couples can practice swing dancing without the help of construction cranes. Duos share a private room during the couples massage, after which they relax as they sip a flute of bubbly and nibble on sweet fruits.
Using organic, eco-friendly waxing products, the expert hair hustlers at Wow Brows use their mug-manicuring skills to brow beat unruly eye bristles into sleek submission. Customizing the treatment to fit the expressive needs of each guest, staff members will make sure forehead fibers are waxed, trimmed, tweezed, and bribed with candy until they succumb and fall into a balanced, attractive shape. An added brow tint lends dramatic flare to newly manicured eye mustaches, eradicating grays or darkening too-blond hairs.
