21 years ago, Ellie Herman worked as a professional dancer and choreographer, running her own company in San Francisco. She loved her work, but she had bills to pay. So, naturally, she took on a side job; she became the professional wrestler known as "Ruth Less." As soon as she began tossing fellow wrestlers around, she incurred a serious knee injury that threatened to end both of her careers. Luckily for her, the nearby St. Francis Hospital of Dance Medicine offered surgery-free rehabilitation through Pilates. Ellie did the workouts for months, and returned to her company an even better dancer than she'd been before her injuries. Later, as a masters student at NYU, Pilates once again helped her recover from hip pain. She discovered an ability to innovate within the bounds of Pilates, and resolved to become a teacher.

She opened the aptly named Ellie Herman Studio, where she continues to teach today. True to her inspiration, she uses Pilates as a basis on which to innovate better forms of corrective movement. So far, she's written nine books on the subject. She invented her own piece of equipment, the Pilates Springboard, which compresses the size and cost of the more traditional Pilates wall unit. She also developed a blend of Pilates and gait training, to help people stave of injury by becoming conscious of the way they move their legs in every day life, which helps to prevent things such as rolling ankles or randomly kicking strangers.

The technicians at New Glamour Day Spa strive to create an ambiance that is conducive to total relaxation. They focus on banishing stress via guests' senses of smell and touch: they enhance soothing Swedish, deep-tissue, and shiatsu massages with fragrant essential oils, and they aromatize facials with botanical extracts such as lemon and rosemary. The thai herbal massage combines the best of both sensory worlds, incorporating long, sweeping ankle-to-hip and hand-to-shoulder strokes with a heated sachet of detoxifying herbs that can double as a sweetly scented doorstop.

The team uses the G.M. Collin skincare line, combating specific issues with nature-based ingredients such as jojoba oil and orange-blossom water. They also offer exfoliating body treatments, permanent makeup, and eyelash extensions.
