Three decades of experience inform SpaZen proprietress Cera Lynn, a licensed acupuncturist, massage therapist, and aesthetician who assembles spa packages that interweave Western beauty treatments with traditional Chinese medicine.
The nearly two-hour Amethyst package begins with a Swedish massage, during which lightweight hands deluge bodies with effleurage strokes to kindle frozen muscles and encourage circulation. A toning stone facial alternates hot and cold stones on skin to awaken oxygen and blood flow, and a custom botanical mask nourishes hungry skin. Toes delight in a foot buffing, which keeps them happy so they don't kick potential game-winning field goals in the wrong direction.
During the 2.25-hour Pearl package, technicians dive a bit deeper, showering weathered pelts with a sugar polish that dissolves cloudy skin cells to uncover glowing skin. After clients choose one of three scents—passion flower, coconut, or pineapple—the scrub is massaged into the body, then hugged off by the warm embrace of steamed towels.
Aestheticians access faces using a multifaceted approach during the elixir anti-aging facial, constructing their plan of attack from the results of an introductory skin assessment and the advice of an FBI agent who has spent years in close quarters with skin cells. Microcurrent and ionic technologies amplify a firming and contouring massage, inviting collagen to renew its vows with skin cells before a seaweed mask delivers a last dose of tightening moisture.
