They’re experienced in hair care, color, make-up application, waxing, and mani-pedis, among many other services.

Founded by Dr. Ida Rolf, the Rolf Method of Structural Integration, or Rolfing, works the web of winding connective tissues (fascia) that envelope the body's organs, muscles, and inner-doodads. When stress, injury, and gravity yank the body out of alignment, the fascia, too, is disrupted, resulting in stiffness and loss of energy within the body that usually only comes from sitting through an awful poetry reading. Rolfing ditches the hitches in the body's giddyup through a systematic application of pressure on the body that lengthens and realigns the fascia.
Sweat pours from foreheads, hearts race, and blood courses. Though these effects are commonly caused by exercising, they are also caused by the detoxifying body wraps offered at Aphrodite. This boutique spa draped in a color scheme of teals and tans employs technicians that foster the toxin-purging process by shining infrared light over fully clothed clients in specialized wraps. Light energy is then able to reach the dermal layer of the skin, where it disrupts fat cells. Along with shrinking waistlines, each 50-minute session aims to relieve aches and pains caused by arthritis, fibromyalgia, stress, and attempting to play water polo with a bowling ball.

This isn’t news to Dr. I. Anthony Cardella, the MD who founded and operates the spa. The OB/GYN and former University of Miami professor created Essence Day Spa to be a place where licensed pros could apply their highly technical skills.
