High-school pals Andrea Veres and Christina Yeates drew inspiration from their own friendship when they opened The Waxing Studio & Spa in 2006, treating skin with the same care they give each other. Their approach is low-tech and gentle, and the airy spa's sleek, black-and-robin's-egg-blue rooms stay chic and tidy with nontoxic, earth-friendly cleaners. Light streams into the quiet massage rooms, where therapists demonstrate camaraderie during tandem and couples massages, before showing commitment to the earth by laundering towels in high-efficiency machines.
Aestheticians gently balance complexions with bronze scales and Hungarian skincare products from Szép Elét, an organic line rich in active ingredients and aromatic botanicals. The Waxing Studio & Spa’s defuzzing specialists created a stage between a traditional bikini wax and a Brazilian—jokingly dubbed the "B.I.T." or Brazilian In Training—to ease women into skimpier swimsuits without cutting support for bacon consumption, and eyebrow specialists will shape arches for men and women with tweezers or the ancient art of threading.
To support their community, the staff invites local vendors to display their handmade jewelry, paintings, and purses in the boutique alongside Szép Elét tonics to take home.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Eyelash extensions, makeup application, facials, hair removal, and body treatments. We also offer orthopedic massage, relaxation massage, hot stone massage, and Zen Shiatsu. We have a biweekly newsletter/blog with articles about the mental and physical connections between healthy, beauty, vitality and happiness.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I wanted to start a top of the line, high end spa with a charitable mission. Luxury with a conscience. St. Lawrence Spa gives 5% of its profit to charity.
What do you love most about your job?
Making good people feel good. I have so much pride in the services we offer and the lovely space in which we do so.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
Best massage "EVVVERRRR!" (No, it wasn't Oprah).
At White Lotus Therapeutic Massage, licensed massage therapist Alexander Huber Sciolino draws from different modalities to customize each treatment to his clients' liking. With help from fellow therapist Kelly Zywiczynski Giles, Alexander works with clients on either table or chair to address issues such as anxiety, chronic pain, or sports injuries acquired vicariously through the TV.
Clients dictate the particulars of each session, deciding whether the massage therapist uses scented oils, puts on music, and sings the high or low harmony to "Amazing Grace." Therapists follow proper draping protocols to put clients at ease as they apply light pressure, deep strokes, and hot stones to ailing muscles.
