A Touch of Heaven’s owner, Andrea Sylvia, seeks to bridge the gap between medical and spa treatments with her background as an RN and her years spent bolstering beauty in her clients. Clients recline in tranquility as tired extremities are mollycoddled during a reflexology massage, a restorative rub that is claimed to trigger relaxation throughout the body’s many human and robotic parts by administering pressure to specific points located on the hands and feet. Or opt to allay the evidence of skin crinkles and hyperpigmentation on the face with a microdermabrasion, a treatment in which a seasoned aesthetician thoroughly purges pores before gently employing a diamond-tipped wand to slough away the top layer of dead skin with a stream of exfoliants. Sessions conclude with a liberal slathering of moisturizer and sunscreen to ensure mugs are in prime shape to pleasantly emote during weddings, business meetings, or boxing matches. Otherwise, clients can choose from a comprehensive list of hair services that each begin with a consultation with the stylist to determine which coiffure best fits craniums. Specialists can trim ($30–$45+) and style ($15–$55+) tresses into desired bobs, beehives, or Barney Miller sculptures, as well as perk up diminished hues with partial foil highlights ($75).
Clients may savor beverages and snacks while gazing at A Touch of Heaven’s pink walls bedecked in artwork, styling products, and service menus masterfully scribed in English from their original cuneiform.
A Touch of Heaven
A Touch of Heaven came to fruition under the direction of Andrea Sylvia, an aesthetician and former surgical nurse who dreamed of blending the pampering atmosphere of a day spa with the compassionate care of a doctor's office. Medical therapies appear throughout the extensive service menu, brightening complexions with pharmaceutical-grade skincare products from SkinCeuticals and trimming silhouettes with weight-loss programs. Nonsurgical face-lifts rely on microcurrent technology to diminish fine lines and visibly firm the skin, while the futuristic-looking alpha spa capsule combines the detoxifying benefits of a sauna with the rejuvenating effects of aromatherapy and vibratory massage.
In addition to these advanced treatments, traditional spa remedies such as manicures, hot-stone massage, and hugs from terry-cloth robes aim to quiet stressed minds and muscles. The spa also accents glowing complexions with glittering face and body art and donates all proceeds from the five-dollar service to Women at Risk, an organization devoted to combating human trafficking.
