While attending the Blue Heron Academy of Healing Arts and Sciences, Sarah Trueb studied ancient methods that stretch back nearly 4,000 years. After graduation, she opened Customized Massage Therapy, LLC, where she eases ailments with stretches, strengthening exercises, and ergonomic products that help make sitting at a desk and sleeping on a bed of nails more comfortable. This nationally board-certified medical massage therapist gained membership with the American Medical Massage Association and enhanced her repertoire of services by studying prenatal and infancy massage.
Belle vie, French for "beautiful life," is exactly what you'll come to expect after visiting the versatile aestheticians of Belle Vie Day Spa. They can pamper visages with a signature facial or slough away dull layers of skin with exfoliating microdermabrasion or chemical peels. For major bodily renovations, VelaShape II sessions aim to emulsify fatty cells, while focused light energy can shut down follicles, permanently stifling hair growth.
Sun Tan City’s trained tanning consultants help clients get bronzed via UV-free tanning booths and ergonomic tanning beds.

American Laser Skincare's certified technicians tighten lax tissues, balance skin tone, and banish wrinkles using procedures that involve no surgery or sticky creams. Skin-tightening treatment restores youthful resilience to sagging surfaces as if pulling an invisible drawstring, erasing fine creases from frowsy brows and other lined features. Using light and radio energy to permeate and entertain the epidermis, the 30–45-minute deep-heat treatment stimulates collagen growth for results that can last up to two years. Benefits can appear after three sessions spaced three to four weeks apart. Laser skin rejuvenation, lasting 45 minutes to an hour, combines FotoFacial light therapy and microdermabrasion, an assault on signs of sun damage and aging, uneven pigment, and broken capillaries. The exfoliating microdermabrasion usually takes place a few weeks after the initial treatments to make sure the skin wasn't just pretending to be smoother and firmer.
Although Michelle White earned certifications at Honors Beauty College that showcase her deft, gentle hands, the massages and facials she delivers at Chez Michelle Skin Spa also incorporate the healing power contained within her arsenal of supplementary tools. The licensed massage therapist?s repertoire of therapeutic strokes and stretches benefits from her understanding of SASTM therapy, which detoxifies bodies with the combined might of modern sonic technology and ancient Chinese cupping techniques. After a quick skin analysis, White uses the results of her research to craft custom facials with Jan-Marini-Skin-Research products, treating blemishes with ingredients like hyalronic acid?a healing agent that abounds in youthful skin. White?s Palomar IPL lasers promote cellular rejuvenation and nix unwanted hair, and her mechanical exfoliators help buff away Sharpie mustaches the hair was there to cover up.
The massage therapists at Zeta Spa Massage don?t just induce relaxation during massages; their trained hands also work to curb headaches, back pain, and anxiety. Each massage targets specific areas to release tension and improve circulation, with additional help from hot stones and aromatherapy. And unlike staffers at many spas where a 60-minute massage only lasts for 50 minutes, Zeta Spa Massage's staff spends the full 60 minutes massaging their clients. They make sure to fully address the causes of any maladies, rather than simply the symptoms. The therapists also team up to provide couples massages for pairs of significant others, friends, or clients and their favorite stuffed animals.
