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.
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, four years later, Lysenko and her team of aestheticians have proven their mettle. To achieve this success, Lysenko 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 treatments like the HydraFacial, 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.?
Efe, Exhale in Beauty Spa's principle aesthetician, sought training with PCA Skin and Image Skincare products to inform her development of corrective custom treatments. The Fortis College graduate's thirst for this kind of knowledge seems unquenchable, given that in her three-year career she has completed continuing-education programs in rejuvenation with diamond-tipped wands, ultrasound waves, and chemical formulas. Medical-grade facial peels, such as Jessner's peels, are a specialty, as are body wraps that purify every inch of skin with herbal blends and soothing paraffin wax. As a complement to skincare, Efe deftly shapes eyebrows and tints eyelashes to add facial dimension or draw attention to your proof-of-concept cyborg eye.
While massage services are available, including Swedish and relaxation modalities, Lady Grace Beauty Spa offers many other services as well.

Parul, owner of Lady Grace Beauty Spa, creates clean, flattering brow-lines using the method. In addition to hair removal, Lady Grace also offers a full range of spa services that beautify the skin and soothe the muscles below it. Dermalogica facials combat skin issues such as acne, wrinkles, or Sharpie tattoos, and henna body art or eyelash-tinting treatments turn up the dial on natural beauty.
