From head to toe, inside and out, the attentive staff at You're So Vain Salon and Spa cossets clients with therapeutic services. Stylists twist and tease locks into vibrant new styles and nail techs, meanwhile, fortify fingers and toes with gobs of mortar or long-lasting OPI color. Aestheticians give attention to epidermal layers with chemical peels and DermaSweep MD—a facial that sweeps away dead skin cells with topical solutions, vacuum pressure, and a precision brush-tip exfoliation. The spa treatments, including hot-stone massages and teeth whitening, can be combined into packages, with bubblegum-scented options for Little Girls spa parties.
Muscle kneader Toveh Zaifert knows that every one of her clients is different. That's why each of her massages is different as well. A graduate of the New York Institute of Massage, Toveh specializes in the customization of her treatments to fit each individual's needs. When she begins a treatment, she'll ask if there are any specific aches, pains, or fears of cowbells she can help allay. Clients then can also choose whether they'd like soothing music played or prefer the serenity of silence. Toveh has trained in a number of massage modalities and is particularly skilled at Swedish, deep-tissue, and medical massage.
At About Face by Erica, aesthetician Erica Stevenson focuses on “the art of staying young,” refreshing clients with facial treatments, makeup applications, and waxing. She also helps keep clients feeling as young as possible with comprehensive makeup-application lessons and tips on which restaurants still sell kids’ menu items to nonminors. Such services are complemented by the work of resident stylist Kelly Mitecki, who performs special-occasion services such as bridal updos.
Tanning Bed bronzes bodies with a bevy of beds calibrated to control the ideal combo of UVA and UVB light. The tanning center's tanning beds offer a better way to copperize your chassis by allowing you to control your exposure to the sun's trilogy of UV rays.

At The Healing Place Massage Therapy & Wellness Center, the continual presence of music accompanies each relaxing service from eyebrow waxes to natural-stone massages. Staffers pamper digits with mani-pedis while contemporary jazz tunes waft through the air, inspiring newly painted hands to play the saxophone when they get home. Meanwhile, soothing facials and tension-defusing massages are set to the soundtrack of tranquil therapeutic music. Playing relaxing music is just one of the ways The Healing Place Massage Therapy & Wellness Center strives to make the business a go-to spot for blissful repose.
