Tayo Day Spa’s mother-and-daughter duo pampers clients with treatments that help create radiant skin and are found on the menu of services. Helmed by the skin-soothing fingertips of the daughter-aesthetician, the 60-minute signature facial starts with a deep cleansing of the visage canvas before an exfoliating enzyme mask and steam treatment supervene to open up pores and slough off dead skin cells. A hand, arm, and shoulder massage works away tension hiding in the extremities of the musculature, and a nourishing application of face and eye cream, which leaves the skin with a glowing complexion, concludes the expression-maker-revamping session.
Goldi Jacques-Maynes, the almost-eponymous founder of Golden Chiropractic, draws on knowledge gleaned while training with leading authorities in sports chiropractic medicine to keep spines happy, healthy, and pliable. Before administering customized treatments, the licensed chiropractor first gets to know her patients through a medical history overview that accounts for past injuries and part-time jobs with Sisyphean construction crews. X-rays afford an internal peek at the spine’s going-ons, and adjustments relieve sublaxations before Dr. Jacques-Maynes calls upon activator adjusting instruments, electrical muscle stimulation, and ultrasound therapy to correct ailing discs.
The center’s resident massage therapists, Monica and Nancy Ferreira, supplement chiropractic treatments with massage techniques cultivated during hours of training. Whether gliding across backs with Swedish-style strokes or placing warm rocks in areas of built-up pressure, Monica and Nancy work to reduce muscle tension and increase joints’ range of motion.
Juliet Bettencourt draws on years of experience in skincare and massage therapy to soothe bodies with treatments that blend the principles of both within a relaxing spa environment. After her own struggles with acne compelled her to help others, Juliet enrolled in beauty school, where she began to augment her uncommon empathy for patients with vast reserves of skincare knowledge. Today, she matches that unique combination of compassion and clinical precision with products from Raya Cosmetics and other trusted brands that cater to normal and sensitive skin types. When she isn’t flushing out pores and polishing cheeks during facials, Juliet waxes away unwanted fuzz and waters tattoos of roses that have begun to shed their petals.
The staff at Dermaclinica believes that the secret to a successful skincare treatment is professional-grade products. That’s why they pull from top quality lines such as gloProfessional when clarifying complexions with signature facials and microdermabrasion treatments. They take particular care of sun-damaged skin, and complement all facials with oxygen steam mist, electric dermal brushing, and aromatherapy massage oils. When not enhancing features with tinting services or scale wax busts, the staff is melting away tension with heated stones during full-body massages.
Massage practitioner Deanna Lopez works in her private treatment room at Optimum Health and Healing to soothe her clients' tight muscles. Though Lopez specializes in the long, flowing strokes of Swedish massage techniques, she also performs foot massages.
At The Beauty Lounge Salon and Day Spa, each technician undergoes meticulous training and ongoing education seminars to ensure luxuriously therapeutic facials, skin-smoothing waxes, and effective strategies for fighting hyperpigmentation and wrinkles. The spa occupies the space of a charming luxury townhome, with plump, purple couches and soft-light chandeliers conjuring the atmosphere of a grandmother’s parlor, and wall-to-wall accents of luxurious mahogany-hued hardwood evoking the image of an aristocratic lumberjack’s summer home.
