Massage therapist Svetlana Braunt draws upon her international education, received in the U.S. and the Ukraine, as well as her continued training, to relax and heal her guests with massage, body wraps, and oils made from distilled smooth jazz. Her background is in energy work, and her top priority is balancing the mind, body, and spirit in a way that facilitates healing. Svetlana's next objective is to continue her studies in holistic and Eastern medicines, as well as in structural integration.
During treatments, Svetlana often nourishes skin with botanical ingredients. She coats bodies in moor mud—a paste rich in minerals, vitamins, amino acids, and humic acids—and also wraps figures in French seaweed, a substance replete with minerals and enzymes. Svetlana's massage services take place at the spa, but she's also mobile; appointments can be made for therapy at home or at special events.:m]]
The aestheticians and laser technicians at Olena's Day Spa, in business for nine years, work seven days a week to help boost beauty and confidence with a diverse palette of services. The skilled staffers tend to façades with European, micro-current, and gentlemen's facials and apply permanent makeup to enhance good looks. Trained and certified technicians remove unwanted hair from body parts by wielding Candela and Cutera lasers and answer questions about the treatment, debunking urban legends that the lasers will not cause x-ray vision.
Before spa or salon sessions, clients can admire the framed, pastel-hued artwork lining the walls in the waiting area, where cushioned leather couches prevent discomfort and coffee tables prove that you can make a table out of a liquid.
Above all else, Full Circle Fitness owner Anthony Silva wants his clients to be happy.

Pure Elements Salon & Spa uses all-natural Aveda products on clients from head to toe. The company also follows through with Aveda's green mission to beautify without harming the earth. The skilled staff members peruse Aveda's robust selection of eco-consciously harvested serums, shampoos, and lotions as they prepare for a range of spa services that includes hair, skin, massage, makeup, and nail treatments for both men and women. Nail technicians exfoliate feet with an all-natural sea-salt scrub before polishing toes. Massage therapists use natural elements during the hydra-stone massage, which, as its name suggests, incorporates both water and hot stones to make muscles as loose as a procrastination club’s meeting times. Aestheticians slough dulling dead skin cells from the face with microdermabrasion, facials, and glycolic peels. Clients can mix and match a combination of Pure Elements’ services to build extra-long spa packages or bridal packages to spiff up ladies on their big days.
