Keeping client satisfaction at the forefront of its mission, the Avalon Med Spa and Laser Center recently underwent a complete overhaul that included acquiring the award-winning G.M. Collin product line, as well as a new therapist, physician, and staff. A medical director and board certified-internist leads a team of professionals, including one member with certification in aesthetic medicine, and special training in medical informatics. The wide-reaching expertise of its staff enables Avalon Med Spa to deliver a varied menu of aesthetic services that includes everything from laser hair removal to teeth whitening, Botox, and body wraps.
Devoted to bettering the patient experience, the center also nestles clients into a relaxing environment replete with plush couches and a waiting lounge done up in warm, neutral tones. Hardwood floors lead clients back to a private treatment room, where the elegant décor relaxes with furnishings such as draped, olive-green curtains, frosted sconces, and a wall waterfall that trickles out droplets harvested from the fountain of youth.:m]]
As its name implies, Executive Physiques Spa and Fitness houses the best of both worlds: a fitness center where personal trainers devise custom, calorie-burning exercise routines, and a relaxing oasis where massage therapists and aestheticians tend to skin and strained muscles. The fitness center’s trainers and instructors regularly attend workshops to keep their skills sharp. Rather than use their strength to twist clients’ arms into signing contracts, they focus on developing the exciting workouts that anchor their drop-in fitness classes. The spa’s staff pick up where they leave off, soothing feet in ion baths and erasing fine lines with nonsurgical face-lifts.
The staff at Soho Tan Spa knows there’s no single correct path to getting a glowing tan. To accommodate clients of all skin types and sensibilities, they offer tanning treatments ranging from the classic UV beds to airbrush treatments by trained technicians or the automated jets of a VersaSpa booth. Their three-pronged approach lets clients choose the level of privacy and method best suited to their skin. The VersaSpa spray tanning booths offer three tanning MyMyst shades to accommodate clients who just want a splash of color or those who want to look like they've spent weeks in a close orbit around the sun. Four brands of beds let clients emphasize facial tanning or faster tan times, while spa facials performed in the tanning salon help refresh newly tanned skin.
Licensed massage therapist Heidi Garrett soothes bodies and minds with customized massage techniques and alternative therapies such as reiki, crystal therapy, and chakra balancing. Heidi incorporates techniques from Swedish massage, trigger-point therapy, myofascial release, and reflexology to accommodate each session to her clients' unique needs and wellness plans. Long, flowing strokes alternate with firm taps as Heidi focuses on pressure points to reduce stress and help heal muscles pulled while shot-putting SUVs out of stolen parking spaces.
Body sculpting is the name of the game at Hollywood Body Wraps. Clients can work toward weight-loss goals with noninvasive services that run the gamut from ThermaSculpt treatments?which liquidate fat cells and tighten skin with ultrasonic and radio-frequency waves?to 10-minute full-body-vibration sessions on Power Plate exercise equipment. Perhaps the signature service here, however, is the body wrap. The detoxifying wraps promote inch loss and reduce the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks, and skin folds.
Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa's staff of beautifiers tunes tendons and harmonizes physiques with an array of pampering services. During a 10-minute massage consultation, a massage therapist will determine the best way to melt tension and aches left over from stressful things, such as jobs and stress. Each personalized 50-minute knot-kneading session combines several techniques to help relieve muscle tension, recharge bodily batteries by increasing circulation, and tranquillize the mind.
