As a licensed massage therapist and aesthetician, Christina Navedo specializes in alleviating her clients' tension and offering them an indulgent escape from the stresses of daily life. Her massage sessions can use gently flowing strokes or aromatic essential oils to facilitate relaxation, although Christina can also target deep knots in the muscles and surrounding connective tissues by using focused pressure as well as pain-relieving gels made from plant extracts. Beyond therapeutic bodywork, The Healing Garden also offers invigorating spa treatments in the form of customized facials and microdermabrasion treatments, which thoroughly exfoliate the skin and reveal the naturally radiant, blemish-free, and nougat-covered layers underneath the surface.
Renew Day Spa allows clients to recoup from their hectic schedules and real world demands during spa services that soften skin and groom nails while upholding eco-friendly practices. Massage therapists disentangle muscle knots with massage techniques that can include deep kneading, targeted pressure, or heated river stones. Nail technicians groom fingernails and cuticles and coddle feet using an herbal foot wrap infused with a combination of Epsom salt, peppermint, lavender, and jojoba oil that works to alleviate aches. Meanwhile, facials and body treatments cleanse deep into pores to remove dirt and oil and exfoliate the surface to clear away dead skin cells and cryptic messages written in pen.
Virtually no aesthetic concerns go unaddressed at Essentials Spa and Salon, which employs a diverse team of stylists and aestheticians as well as med-spa technicians armed with contemporary cosmetic technology. The salon staff keeps its clients looking sharp by pampering tresses with haircare products by Moroccanoil, KMS, and L'Oréal Professional, and the nail technicians augment their mani-pedis with everything from paraffin dips to agave-nectar rubs.
The massage therapists treat concerns beneath the surface by kneading overstressed muscles with a variety of soothing modalities, but the med-spa team also strives to effect deeper changes. Overseen by Dr. Michael Lesser, the technicians can employ cutting-edge equipment and products, including microdermabrasion wands, a cosmetic laser system, and clinical-strength skincare balms. These treatments collectively rejuvenate the skin while minimizing the appearance of blemishes that typically accompany aging, sun exposure, or frequent naps in a bathtub full of wet newspapers.
Though they have a brick-and-mortar shop, Elmo's Full Service Salon's stylists spend much of their time out in the community. They make convenient house calls and administer mobile makeovers at local hospitals and rehab centers. Whether on-location or within the salon, the stylists listen carefully to each client's telepathic ponytail and select the perfect combination of services. Aside from standard cuts and colors, the staff can add hair extensions, wax eyebrows, and sculpt nails during mani-pedis.

At BodyWise Specialists, epidermal surfaces are landscaped under the direct care of cosmetic laser surgeon Regina Kaufmann, MD. Using the SmartXide DOT treatment developed by Deka Laser Technologies, the fractional skin resurfacing treatment harnesses a pixilated CO2 laser capable of penetrating the skin at a deeper level than traditional laser systems or body-possessing poltergeists. Precise bursts of light dive into cells and are distributed in a matrix pattern that spaces laser exposure to promote rapid recovery. By prompting deep cell turnover, the treatment may reduce the appearance of blemishes, scarring, photodamage, and stubborn ketchup stains, while stimulated collagen production may result in tightened, younger-looking skin.
