Licensed massage therapist Debra Fazio adds a caring touch to each massage, facial, chemical peel, and body treatment she performs at BodyBliss Time Massage. As she deploys her shiatsu, hot-stone, and deep-tissue massage handiwork, patients relax in a treatment room that reverberates with the sounds of nature, such as birdsong, ocean waves, and conch shells doing vocal warm-ups. Facial clients kick back in similar relaxation as warm steam gently opens their pores to prepare for deep cleansing and exfoliation with the help of customized serums. Debra also mixes organic sugars, salts, and sands to forge body and foot scrubs that evoke the calming feeling of crab-walking along the beach.
The aestheticians at BodyTrends specialize in nonsurgical Electrospa treatments that have toned and beautified the bodies of beauty-pageant contestants. By stimulating muscles with gentle electrical currents, technicians can mimic the effects of a face-lift or breast lift without ever breaking the scalpel out of its emergency glass. Lasers erase unwanted hair, veins, cellulite, and tattoos, and facial services banish blemishes while adorning features with MNA and mineral cosmetics. For feelings of inner peace, BodyTrends' massage therapists capture tension from bodies and release it deep in the woods to plague overly frivolous nymphs.
Nicole, the licensed medical aesthetician, makeup artist, and namesake behind Skincare by Nicole, wields an assortment of cosmetic technologies to help men and women feel more confident about their skin. Her Candela GentleLase laser zaps unwanted hair from various neighborhoods of the anatomy, while flashes of intense-pulsed light emanating from her Ellipse I2PL device scare away wrinkles, age spots, and overly clingy shadows. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels slough away signs of aging, and guests can turn to teeth whitening to brighten their grins.
At Luv 2 Rub, a skilled massage therapist fights unwieldy stress and pesky muscle pains using deep-penetrating Swedish massages augmented by hot-stone therapy. The muscle mender, fully stocked with an assortment of oils that can target specific ailments, tailors each massage to work around patrons' individual needs, preferences, and vestigial dorsal fins. Tensed torsos settle in for their 60- or 90-minute sessions as caring hands employ the Swedish technique's long, flowing strokes to help induce relaxation and ply muscle tissue. By tracing taut tendons with heated basalt stones, the anxiety-fighting guru can help increase blood circulation, reduce back pain, and promote a deeper understanding between man and rock.
A.J. at Hair Emporium pampers clients from head to toe with an arsenal of beautifying and relaxing services. The Garden State–inspired Jerseylicious mani-pedi applies a glamorous foil finish to trimmed fingernails as well as scrubbed and groomed toenails, and lasts about one week, dazzling passersby and temporarily stunning podiatrists. Durable gel polish adorns digits after a Shellac manicure, and cleansed and toned faces luxuriate under a seaweed mask during the 30-minute express facial. The one-hour body wrap commences with a bow-to-stern body scrub, followed by an ambrosial mud mask and moisturizer. While relaxers unwind in their earthen cocoons, skilled fingers massage the scalp and third eye for 15 minutes.
