The staff at Metta Wellness Center believes that, in order to fully heal their patients, they must heal them as a whole: mind, body, and spirit. The center?s tranquil confines help accomplish this goal while staff perform treatments influenced by a blend of Eastern and Western therapies. During a traditional Thai massage, the therapist combines muscle compression, acupressure, and yoga-like body manipulations to energize patients without switching their vitamins with espresso beans. They also offer tropical hot-stone massages, signature body scrubs and wraps, herbal body wraps, and Thai reflexology, which targets pressure points in the feet to balance the body?s energy.
Sol Day Spa puts a premium on hassle-free relaxation, allowing clients to book appointments online for massage, waxing, aromatherapy, and a whole host of facial services. In private treatment rooms, the spa’s aestheticians can take the time to analyze skin and perform meticulous skincare services to address problems including acne, fine lines, and sensitivity. Deep cleansing with extractions purifies the skin, and add-ons can address clients’ skincare issues. The vitamin C serum heals sensitive or sun-damaged skin, and a lightening treatment fades hyperpigmentation and scars from old blemishes or freckle duels.
Specialty massage types relax bodies with hot stones, deep pressure, or gentle kneading designed to relieve the pain and discomfort of expectant mothers.
Donna Lapetina, owner and head aesthetician at Skin Solutions Medical Spa, has spent the last decade caring for aging skin—including her own. Donna and her team work their age-defying magic under the direction of board-certified dermatologist Dr. Sheila Boyle, whose career includes time as a flight surgeon, a lieutenant commander in the military, and a volunteer speaker on skin cancer. The staff’s specialty services include microdermabrasion, peels, and facials, as well as intensive acne treatments. Dr. Boyle performs all Botox and dermal-filler procedures herself to safely keep crow’s-feet, frown lines, and worry lines at bay. Clients receive their treatments in private, earth-toned rooms that mix the serenity of a spa with the professionalism of a medical office.
