In his eponymous skincare clinic, massage therapist and aesthetician Doug Stevens mixes massage techniques with endovibratory therapy to simultaneously soothe muscles and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Patients sprawl across cushy massage tables during each one-hour Bodytone treatment, throughout which hands work over cramped muscles so they don’t tighten up during footraces to decide who Mom loves the most. The rapidly oscillating head of an endovibratory-therapy device also skips across hides, stimulating the skin to smooth away the epidermal turbulence of cellulite with the help of heat and ultrasonic frequencies.
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Doug Stevens Skin Care a spot on Groupon’s Best of 2011 list.
Doug Stevens Skin Care
Time may be short before Doug Stevens's next client, but he can always find a moment to talk shop. "I love helping people," he declares. "Helping people look better, feel better. That's the most satisfying thing." Doug has been a nationally certified massage therapist and aesthetician for 15 years, specializing in a process he devised to reduce the appearance of cellulite while relaxing the whole body. The technique combines an endovibratory device oscillating at 35 times per second with ultrasonic heat and his signature bodywork methods. "After the cellulite treatment, the skin is firmer, the appearance smoother," he explains. "People generally really like it, so they'll rebook."
Before receiving certification in Las Vegas in 1997, Doug was in the construction business as a general contractor. But it wasn't giving him what he wanted. "I was looking for a profession that was less stressful, where I could help people. I wanted to be more hands on. And my friends always came to me for massages, so I decided to go into that." Over time, he's added other treatments designed to improve the mood while boosting beauty, such as a photon antiwrinkle light therapy.
Doug describes his studio as very relaxing, with low light and smooth music. Though the ambiance has an undeniable pulse-slowing effect, it's the treatments' results that he credits for his return business. "Some of my clients have been coming every week for six years," he says. "Only the wealthy can usually afford treatments like these. That's not the case here. I want people to focus on how good they're going to feel."
