Aesthetic specialists harness the power of light during photo-rejuvenation skin treatments and keep harmful rays at bay with spray tanning. In addition to enhancing facial features, permanent makeup artists hide flaws ranging from uneven pigmentation to scars. Stylists also beautify faces with traditional means such as makeup applications, haircuts, and highlights.
Muscles that aren't properly cared for tend to lash out through strains, spasms, and passive-aggressive text messages. That's where Allie Haft comes in. As a massage therapist with more than a decade of experience, she has a sixth sense for putting together treatment plans tailored to individual muscular needs. Clients often come to her for simple hot-stone therapy or for blended massages that combine Swedish strokes, Thai yoga stretching, and deep-tissue pressure. Anyone with muscle sensitivity may instead opt for a reiki session to help unblock energy channels and stimulate immunity.
Rae Marie bases her business, Rae of Light Aromatherapy Massage, on the use of scented oils. In a candid essay, she explains why: as a teenager, she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Rae spent her high-school years cycling between different medications and inpatient programs, but continued to feel mired in negative emotions—when she didn't feel like a "walking vegetable," that is.
In 1993, something changed. Rae's mom, an alternative healer, was enrolled in a course on essential oils. When Rae reluctantly accompanied her mom to class, she intended to sleep through it. But by the end of the lecture, the soothing scent of an oil called "joy" had put her mind at ease, and as the duo smelled it in the car, they found it facilitated communication between them. Over the next few months, Rae learned more about oils, eventually stopping her medication and leaving the hospital to focus in on a new path in life. Today, at her massage clinic, she helps others experience the dramatic changes she went through via a variety of massage modalities, oils, and spa packages.

Therapists massage essential oils infused with spruce and pine extracts into skin. The oils boast anti-inflammatory properties that are a welcome relief for sore, tired muscles. Because the massage also uses deep pressure, it is ideal for athletes and anyone who isn't afraid of a heavy hand.
Deeply Moisturizing Honey-Avocado Butter Wrap
High-altitude honey, prized for its above-average enzyme count, and avocado butter work together to trap water in the skin. Aromatic cardamom and vanilla essential oils add to the sensory experience.
Signature High-Altitude Revitalizing Gemstone Ormus Ritual
The crown jewel of the spa menu, this three-hour sojourn begins with a soak in Ormus water sourced from nearby mountain streams. Later, a 90-minute massage finds therapists drizzling herbal oils energized with garnet, carnelian, rose quartz, and amethyst along the spine, and then placing gemstones on top.
Holistic Mile-High Pedicure
A hot-stone massage targets pressure points before warmed paraffin wax blankets feet, softening skin and warming up toes almost as well as burrowing them under a sleeping polar bear. The 80-minute treatment also includes a foot scrub.
"Don't worry, be happy," reads a wooden sign near Katherine DeCamp's massage table. But in the context of From the Roots Up's studio, it's less a slogan and more an invocation, a summons that the massage therapist manifests through therapeutic and stress-relieving bodywork. Katherine's varying treatments address different needs but they're unified by the goal of placating soreness and raising spirits. These include Swedish massage, a gentle antidote to stress and tension, as well as specialty Thai, prenatal, and sports massages that can address the aches that come from pregnancy or the pains incurred while subbing in for a lost soccer ball. Wooden sign notwithstanding, the studio's neutral colors and potted plants are soft grace notes not meant to draw the eyes in but instead permit them to rest behind droopy lids.
