Fresh Face Loftique's owners Ann Slanga and Kara Huelsmann know what it takes to look good. Ms. Slanga has spent the last decade as an aesthetician, during which time she's honed her craft in spa facilities around the world, from San Francisco to Saint-Malo, France. Similarly, Ms. Huelsmann has spent more than 20 years in the industry and has worked alongside dermatologists and plastic surgeons.
These experiences guide the aestheticians at Fresh Face Loftique. Just by looking at a client's face, they know the right blend of masks, toners, and cleansers that will give skin the youthful glow of a freshly picked light bulb. The staff might also recommend slimming body wraps or a full-body exfoliation, which uses seawater crystals to scrub away dead skin. Other standout services include massages with modalities such as hot-stone therapy.
At GotAPain.com, a caring practitioner melts stress from muscles with a skilled set of bare hands. Though it may seem like magic, each touch is informed by time-tested techniques designed to release tension and unfurl vestigial dragonfly wings. The therapist works in tandem with clients' primary care providers to tailor massages that help address injuries and chronic aches. A technician often taps into CranioSacral Therapy, employing gentle pressure to melt blockages in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. After tackling corporeal ailments, the studio can motivate clients to overcome other obstacles preventing them from reaching their goals with lifestyle coaching.

But the team does not aim for relaxation alone; they recognize the myriad health benefits associated with massage, including better sleep and elevated immunity.

But once she's with them, her focus narrows. Each appointment is meticulously personalized, from color selection to application.
