Hand & Stone's licensed staff of aestheticians and muscle therapists relaxes ligaments and purifies pores with a variety of massages (a $79.95 value/session) and signature facials (a $79.95 value/session). Monthly kneading sessions may increase alertness, relieve anxiety, and improve one's attitude toward segway cops who don't use turn signals. The season of stress-busting marks three custom massages on your corporeal calendar, offering a choice of Swedish, deep tissue, sports, prenatal, and other styles to suit variously beleaguered bods.
Equipped with a love for natural treatments and a resume boasting experience as a certified aesthetician, Liz Hargis beautifies smiles with Beaming White teeth-whitening sessions, which can whiten teeth by up to six to eight shades in less than an hour. The treatment uses blue LED light to open the teeth's pores, helping them stay brighter for up to six months.
At Motherlove Massage, clients don't have to be a king, queen, or even potty-trained to experience the royal treatment. The Motherlove staff specializes in working with the entire family, whether infants, parents, or the mini-fridge that always gets chilly and wears dad's cardigan. Pamela, to name one of their licensed massage therapists, draws from 20 years of experience. On top of their standard adult-catered massages—such as relaxation, deep tissue, and hot stone—some of Motherlove's therapists are trained as doulas and proficient in pre- and post-natal massage. Their varied expertise allows the staff to assist individuals through all stages of life, and along the way maintain sound health, inner balance, and harmony through massage therapy.
The technicians at LaserDerm MedSpa & Wellness Center wield lasers to smooth and contour bodies. They specialize in laser hair removal to permanently reduce fuzz on bikini lines, underarms, and toes. To whittle down excess curves, they activate a Zerona device that uses low-level lasers to cause fat cells to release their contents as clients lie down and relax, read, or listen to the Tuvan throat singing playing on their iPod. Additionally, the center offers treatments for skin issues such as lines, scars, or sun damage.

The team at Forever Trim Body Sculpting Center performs noninvasive body-contouring and face-lift procedures under the guidance of Dr. Michael Rodriguez. Drawing on a wealth of technology and leadership from Rodriguez, a fellow in the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the center’s technicians reshape the body and tighten the skin. With a Zerona LipoLaser system, they emulsify stubborn fat on the waist, hips, and thighs, making it easier to wear skinny jeans or slip into a toaster while playing hide-and-seek. The Ulthera machine, on the other hand, performs a nonsurgical face-lift without significant pain or downtime.
