Tova Galgut of Tova’s Beautique & Wellness Center enlists her triple-threat credentials as a massage therapist, aesthetician, and electrologist to heal and beautify clients from the inside out. The tissue mender uses a slew of massage modalities, from deep-tissue kneads to hand-and-foot reflexology, to create custom massage recipes that fit each of her client’s needs. As an aesthetician, Tova rejuvenates visages with cleansing European facials and acne treatments designed specifically for teenage skin. The beauty purveyor also attacks unwanted fuzz with swift face and body waxings or suggests a more permanent solution in the form of electrolysis, which permanently wards off growing hair no matter the phase of the moon.
As a certified massage therapist and a holistic health practitioner, Lindsey Culpeper rarely comes across a knotted muscle she can’t untie with a few well-placed kneads and strokes. To share her talents with others,
she founded LRC Therapeutic Bodywork inside Beautique and Wellness Day Spa. Though her bodywork methods range from gentle strokes to deep-tissue pressures, many of them focus on preventing injury and promoting holistic health. Much like a tag-team debate at the United Nations, Lindsey’s massages often blend Western and Eastern techniques to mend lingering tensions.

Q&A with Ashley, Owner Holistic Health Practitioner
What’s your favorite part about your job?
I'm grateful to work closely with families and to see their progression and transition throughout the entire spectrum of preconception, pregnancy, labor preparation, and parenting experience. One of my favorite parts of my practice is the couples massage workshops I offer, especially the comfort massage for pregnancy & labor class. This class is a wonderful addition to the childbirth education or hospital classes that clients might already be taking. This 2 hour interactive workshop is a great way for couples to connect before the baby arrives, while learning creative ways to support their overall birth experience.
What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?
Every client enters our relaxing waiting lounge and receives an initial intake form and consultation before we begin. This allows them to provide helpful information to make their session as effective and enjoyable as possible. During the massage, there are special pillows set up for optimal positioning and comfort and I offer tips, stretches, and ideas to support the day to day pregnancy experience. I also encourage clients to communicate their specific needs, and to ask as many questions as they want. I'm happy to offer resources and referrals!
What else should I know about prenatal massage?
Prenatal Massage is offered throughout all stages of pregnancy, however style of treatments will vary based on how far along you are and your specific, individual needs. To accommodate clients coming in for labor preparation, initial prenatal massage sessions are usually scheduled before 36 weeks and often booked a week to two weeks in advance. Prenatal massage blends therapeutic and soothing massage techniques for overall relaxation and rejuvenation during this special time. Studies indicate that massage during pregnancy may reduce anxiety, relieve muscle and joint discomfort, and even improve and support more positive birth experiences. Many people describe feeling very connected to their changing body, growing baby, and a sense of overall well being when receiving consistent and therapeutic massage during the transitional time of pregnancy. As you move closer to full term (usually the two weeks before or after your estimated due date) we offer our signature treatment called The Labor Prep Acu/Massage. This treatment gently supports and encourages the process that is naturally occurring in the body as it prepares for labor and birth. Visit our website to learn more!
The meteoric growth of Massage Envy has led to more than 800 spa locations and a healthy share of limelight from printed media buzz to promotions on
The Ellen DeGeneres Show and
The Doctors . Its experts have kneaded more than 50 million backs using modalities that range from the gliding strokes of Swedish massage to the targeted pressure of deep-tissue massage. Although the spa treats a wealth of clients, each Massage Envy session is personalized to individual needs. While indulging in prenatal, hot-stone, or trigger-point-therapy massages, clients can also request the soothing mint and rosemary essential oils of aromatherapy or the addition of warming and cooling products that help decrease inflammation and ease pain.
In addition to staffing massage therapists, the spas employ skincare experts who wield Murad products for four kinds of facials. Clients can treat sensitive skin to mild exfoliation or opt for anti-aging facials with glycolic acid before attempting to order off the kids’ menu at a diner.
