Licensed aesthetician Jacqueline Dube expresses her passion for restoring natural beauty through a host of pampering spa services. A non-invasive microdermabrasion treatment uses the gentle patter of fine crystals and a light suction to admonish age spots and excavate layers of dead skin soil, unearthing a rejuvenated sheen and stores of buried jellybeans. After a simple 30-minute treatment, skin feels smoother, and compliments penetrate the outer layers of derma more easily.
This suite of corporeal indulgences targets and tackles the tension that too often takes up residence in the back, fingers, and foot fringe. The Elemental Nature massage ($85) offers customized earth-themed pampering, soothing torsos weary for a variety of reasons, whether from bear-hugging lonely bears or playing leapfrog with a giraffe. Summon the essence of air with Infinity and Air, a slow warming deep-tissue massage that ameliorates overworked fibers, or cool flushed flesh and muscles with a rhythmic stress-relieving Fire massage. The Water and Earth therapy style employs fast-paced, acute techniques to stimulate circulation and temporarily turn clients' minds into swimming pools.
Named some of Worcester’s Best Massage Therapists by Worcester Mag three years in a row, Revitalize Massage Therapy's resident back kneaders unwind tense muscles with an array of massages. Revitalize's specialties include deep tissue, which focuses on localized pressure; Swedish, which employs lighter, muscle-skimming strokes; and trigger-point therapy and myofacial release. Therapists treat dorsal extremities to the client's choice of techniques for a 60- or 90-minute service as soothing as a lullaby whispered by Darth Vader.
Named the best hair salon by Worcester Mag for the second year in a row, Jeffrey Robert Salon's digit technicians pamper and beautify hands and feet with uncanny expertise. During each half-hour manicure, palm-prod mavens trim cuticles, buff nails, and massage palms with moisturizing lotion to reward hands for building a coffee table out of Play-Doh. The salon's 45-minute pedicure includes a foot massage and hydrating lotion, as well as toenail trimming, filing, and shaping. Jeffrey Robert Salon carries several OPI nail-polish collections, such as the Texas, Katy Perry, and Burlesque lines, allowing patrons to sport dazzling hands without gluing on confetti.
