[ 62 ] • # dayspamagazine • september 2018 RETAIL ROCKSTAR THE SPA Buhl Mansion Guesthouse & Spa in Sharon, Pennsylvania THE PRO Laura Ackley, general manager THE STAR Pevonia Dry Oil Body Moisturizer WHY IT ROCKS "Applied directly after a shower or bath while skin is still damp, this moisturizer goes on as an oil but almost instantly absorbs with no greasy residue, creating a fabulous hydrating barrier. It contains all natural botanical ingredients including chamomile, lavender and aloe. In the summer, it delivers soft, glowing skin, and in the winter it protects against dryness. It's the kind of product that every client loves, whether they come in for a massage, body treatment, facial or nail service. We offer stacked discounts based on the number of Pevonia products purchased, and guests keep buying this one because of its clean scent and incredible results." u WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE SERVICE TO PERFORM, AND WHY? Trish Lasher lead massage therapist Miraval Life in Balance Spa at Monarch Beach Resort Dana Point, California One of my favorites is the Ultimate Ayurveda Experience. It's a two-hour treatment consisting of abhyanga massage, using one of three dosha-specifi c oils to balance out the energies of the body, along with marma therapy targeting diff erent energy points (similar to acupuncture or shiatsu). Then, the guest is cocooned in scented linens while receiving the shirodhara—a gentle stream of warm oil on the forehead to promote a meditative experience. This treatment helps guests retreat from their daily rituals and take time to move inward and focus on themselves. " " Enrique Ramirez founder and esthetician Face to Face NYC New York City I love doing my Forget Me Knots treatment—it's two and a half hours of pure bliss. I start by massaging the back, shoulders and neck to remove the most stubborn knots, followed by a 15-minute foot massage with refl exology point work. Once I've turned my clients to mush, I perform a deep, pore-cleansing facial with extra extractions. My guests can sense my passion for this treatment, and that's how I gain their loyalty. " " Angela Thornton owner Artisan Skin Care Cape Cod, Massachusetts Hands down, my top treatment is the Artisan Elite Facial, which melds the tried and true methodology of the past with modern products and techniques. I use only natural, organic ingredients, and the service also incorporates microdermabrasion, microcurrent and LED light therapy, as well as a signature facial massage taught to me by my aesthetics mentor from Japan. I believe facials are an important part of self-care, and my clients love this one because it balances the complexion and overall well- being—they call it 'relaxation with results.'
