Owner Chris Valvanis says, “We want our guests to feel like they were provided with the best service possible so they come back to maintain their skin care and their needs. The days of the spa just being a pampering retreat are over. It’s a maintenance program now so people can take care of their skin and bodies as whole. Clients come on a regular basis, we know their names, their needs, and provide whatever it takes. We hunt out regularly the best products, the best techniques, to provide those services to clients. We try to step around trends to stay rooted in the skills and true services.”
