Experienced aesthetician Charisse Bruno specializes in facials and makeup artistry as well as eyebrow shaping and Brazilian waxes. At Bella Pelle, she customizes her facials to meet each client’s particular skin needs, whether it’s cleaning pores with extractions or providing preventive care for teenage skin. During waxing services, Charisse employs a quick technique that rids clients of unwanted hairs fast and with minimal discomfort, similar to a stock-car racer with a La-Z-Boy driver’s seat. Her private treatment room features an elegant diminutive chandelier, light green walls, and a painting of a woman in a dress.
At Cloud Nine Therapeutic Massage, licensed massage therapist Peggy Pulak fosters tranquility of body and mind with traditional massages and alternative therapies. Her Swedish massages utilize oils and gentle, flowing strokes to soothe muscles. During Hawaiian lomi lomi massages, she may treat two areas of the body at the same time—the left shoulder and right hip, for example, a combination that's rare outside of Simon Says games. Pulak also administers alternative therapies designed to promote general wellbeing, such as reflexology foot massages and energy therapy.
Epidermis & Co. chief aesthetician Michelle Cataldo has dedicated herself to the art of skincare.

Drawing from her experience, she can treat any aesthetic woe from dry skin to hyperpigmentation that looks like Elvis sideburns. The Epidermis & Co. team also provides non-invasive treatments including iLipo that reduces the appearance of cellulite and dermal fills that smooth away wrinkles and plump lips.
Since 1885, Dillons Russian Steam Bath has been steaming stress out of its patrons, making it one of the oldest traditional Russian baths in the United States. Using the time-honored methods of the banya, Dillons' steam chamber seeks to subdue stress and tension with heated granite rocks, billowing steam, and sponges of cold water for invigorating dousing. At its balmiest, the upper bench of the steam room can reach as high as 180 degrees, promoting a healthy, skin-softening sweat and a bevy of ulterior body benefits.
Exhale Spa seeks to transform its clientele inside and out. The founding team of fitness professionals and aestheticians sought to create an environment where they could empower visitors with pampering spa treatments, invigorating fitness classes, and lifestyle education, helping clients attain a sense of control and holistic balance. Now with 19 locations across 11 cities, Exhale Spa and its signature services have earned mentions in numerous national publications, including People magazine, the New York Times, and O, The Oprah Magazine.
Exhale's signature Core Fusion classes incorporate dance-inspired stretches, yoga poses, and Pilates exercises into total-body workouts that build long, lean limbs and sturdy abdominal muscles over time. For an even more varied workout, the instructors introduce boot-camp techniques, cardio exercises, or multiplication tables to select sessions. Yoga classes present a similar amount of breadth and variety, drawing inspiration from a number of introspective and physically oriented styles. To help hasten physical transformations, nutrition and wellness coaches teach attendees about the impacts of diet. These sessions build an awareness of healthy eating habits through custom meal plans and by teaching clients how to identify the edible parts of a fruit basket.
Many of the center's traditional spa services seek to inspire confidence. Facials pamper and refine skin using everything from green tea and fruit extracts to microcurrent technology, and mani-pedis revitalize digits before glazing nails with a vibrant new coat of color. Bodywork treatments look beyond physical relaxation and focus on holistic concerns. Massage therapists can use Eastern or Western modalities to soothe overstressed musculature, and acupuncture treatments and reiki sessions jump-start natural healing processes by encouraging the free flow of inner energies.
