Natural ingredients may be important at Spa Bolena—body treatments make use of seaweed, lavender, roses, or milk and honey—but just as important is the setting in which treatments take place. That's why the spa adapts each of its treatment rooms based on the client's choice of atmosphere, altering the lighting, visuals, and sounds to fit such peaceful themes as meadow, rain forest, or ball pit. As these environs soothe minds, aromatherapy delights noses with scents of sandalwood, lemongrass, and eucalyptus.
While other children grew up wanting to become singers, astronauts, and firefighters, Irene Meiller had other plans. After years of her serving as her family's resident massage therapist, Meiller eventually went on to pursue the profession and has now spent more than a decade as a licensed massage therapist. During this time she's honed her unique style by working aboard cruise ships, at high-end spas, and as a self-employed bodywork specialist. She currently works her magic at Meiller Massage, specializing in deep-tissue and trigger-point techniques that help to treat chronic pain, stress, and limbo-related injuries.

Susan Zhao understands massage therapy. Licensed to practice in New York, Florida, Virginia, and Georgia, she divides her time between attending to clients' needs and overseeing the three Jo Jo's Massage locations that she founded. At these spas, Susan's staff uses a wide range of massage modalities intended to indulge and relax visitors, provide therapeutic relief, or even a bit of both. During hot-stone massages, a therapist treats troublesome areas with heated stones, which radiate heat to soothe tightly knotted muscles located deep beneath the surface. Reflexology treatments target specific areas along the feet with focused pressure, attempting to trigger the nerves that help heal organ systems throughout the rest of the body.
