Inside The Skin Spa & Wellness Center's cozy boutique atmosphere, massage therapists and aestheticians pluck products from around the world to soothe individual complaints. Aestheticians pamper fa?ades with mud imported from Italy or exfoliate dry skin with Hungarian salt. During massage services, aromatherapy hailing from France sends nose receptors on exotic vacations. To reap the full benefits of each facial, waxing, or body service, the staff recommends booking services in advance to block out a time slot and ensure unhurried, leisurely service.
Waxing expert Ashly Clinger frees men and women from unwanted stubble in her homey studio, Face & Body Skin Care Retreat. She is such a pro at this form of depilation that she has recorded an instructional DVD to teach aspiring waxers the techniques and theory of her craft. Her website educates clients with tips such as avoiding caffeine for 12 hours before the appointment or how to write a nice breakup letter to the unwanted body hair. As a licensed aesthetician, Ashly also performed facials, body scrubs, and ear candling.
Jesse Daniel Salon’s lineup of savvy stylists tame tresses with the Keratin Coppola hair-straightening treatment. Amid the salon’s black, white, and red décor, experienced stylists infuse follicles with a keratin-rich formula that soothes and relaxes strands without the hassle of singing them a full catalog of lullabies. The treatment defrizzes and uncurls all manner of manes, leaving behind soft, shiny curtains of hair more manageable than a newborn robot.
Each location offers the regenerative properties of various varieties of massage that make a soul vessel feel springtime fresh. Of your 90-minute massage session, 10 minutes are set aside for dressing time and a consultation with your therapist to ensure your massage is customized for you.
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.
Knotted muscles unravel under the trained hands of the massage therapist behind 4 My Soul Massage. Clients looking to reduce stress, improve their flexibility, or find relief from pain can benefit from the massage techniques on the menu. Heated stones melt tension in muscles and connect clients with their inner volcanoes, while deep-tissue massage reaches the deeply buried knots and stiffness that cause chronic aches. During a reflexology massage, the therapist applies pressure to specific points on the hands or feet to stimulate other parts of the body, a method that may alleviate headaches or calm phantom tingling. Soft lighting and aromatherapy further relax clients during appointments.
