When Vicky Lysenko took over Bliss Facial Spa, she quickly realized the challenge she’d signed up for. With no experience in the skincare industry and only the advice of her cosmetologist daughter, Lysenko was overwhelmed by the time and energy it took to maintain a high-quality spa. Today, two years and more than 150 regular visitors later, Lysenko and her team of aestheticians have proven their mettle. To achieve this success, Lynsenko seeks out only the best staff members; in addition to training and ability, she looks for aestheticians with interpersonal skills and a team mentality. Lysenko also keeps her spa on the cutting edge of cosmetic technology. In addition to performing traditional spa services with products from Image Skincare and Éminence Organics, the staff at Bliss swiftly corrects blemishes and jostles circadian rhythms with FDA-approved light-therapy treatments. Lysenko recalls light-therapy clients who arrived with severe acne or fallout from poorly performed chemical peels. After a series of treatments, their faces were evidence enough of the technology's mending power. “It’s incredible how fast and how well [they] healed,” she gushes. “We really have a lot of faith in that light.”
After losing her young daughter to a nervous system disorder, Molly Snow chose to dedicate her life to helping other families to overcome the physical and emotional consequences of medical conditions. Her experiences with unsuccessful surgeries and medical procedures steered her away from that field and toward alternative, non-Western therapies. While training for her massage license, Molly encountered craniosacral therapy for the first time. “As soon as I heard about it and took my first class,” she recalls, “I knew that I had to commit myself to it full time.”
Molly’s initial attraction to craniosacral therapy was based on claims that it could help relieve major neurological issues. By applying gentle pressure to blocked sites, she learned, a therapist could potentially rekindle communication between nerves. After training further and witnessing her patients’ relief, Molly became convinced that this therapy could have saved her daughter’s life.
This powerful knowledge continues to inspire her work at Neos Massage. Clients of all ages and conditions visit her for light bodywork treatments, during which they can remain fully clothed. A holistic healer at heart, Molly strives to “bring the outside in” by leaving a window open.
EMH Healthcare’s team of therapists and medical professionals began treating patients in 1904; in the ensuing century, their system of compassionate care steadily expanded to serve the greater Cleveland area. Today, that system includes Exhale, a day spa that sets its advanced medical treatments within a calm and relaxing atmosphere. Though its plush massage beds and warm, earth-toned decor seem far removed from a medical clinic, Exhale doesn’t forsake the medical credibility that has become synonymous with EMH Healthcare. State-licensed and board-certified therapists administer all spa services, which include pedicures, facials, and cosmetology treatments to cover up blemishes and exposed circuit wires.
The team at Bella Medspa comprises osteopathic physicians, nurses, laser technicians, and medical aestheticians, all of whom focus their skills on restoring youthful facets to faces. They use DiamondTome microdermabrasion technology to buff away dead skin cells and minimize age spots, and beauty injections to tame wrinkles and plump up features that have lost volume. Different injections, along with IPL treatments, help to reduce signs of aging, whereas flashes of laser light zap unwanted body hair on nearly any area of the anatomy.
Essentials Massage & Facials' Spa professionals relax weary bodies with a collection of therapeutic services. Soothing massages employ a collection of kneads, strokes, and manipulations to reduce tension and disentangle body knots, with luxurious add-ons such as paraffin treatments and aromatherapy. The skin-savvy techs also rid frames of unwanted stubble with waxing services, smooth out wrinkles with chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and soften countenances with professional skincare products during facials.
The doctors and medical support staff at Adora Body Sculpting Clinic help patients attain their ideal figures with a menu of cosmetic-surgery procedures.

Bodies feel free to bare all after laser hair removal and tattoo removal.
