"Give The Gift of Wellness"

Spa Rockaway, a holistic spa on Rockaway Beach, offers an array of holiday gift options from facials and massages to body treatments and laser hair removal.  Gift certificates for a dollar amount or for specific treatments make great stocking stuffers and luxurious gifts.

Spa Rockaway owner Pat Rorke is a licensed esthetician certified in Reiki and Face Yoga, which she incorporates into her facials.  While researching products and treatments, she developed the Skin Fitness Program, which is designed to target all layers of the skin along with strengthening the facial muscles.  Rorke says the holidays are a great time to give a Spa Rockaway gift card or treatment.  "The gift of wellness is one of the best gifts you can give.  I love getting a spa gift," she says.  She suggests checking the website for holiday specials, "including a holiday body scrub in a winter wonderland scent."

When asked how to prep skin for winter weather, Rorke suggests "exfoliation and rehydration.  Our signature facial does a beautiful job.  It starts with microdermabrasion then oxygen is infused deep into the skin.  We recommend people get a facial once a month."

Signature treatments and products include Skin Holistic skincare and the new Venus Versa treatment.  The Skin Holistic skincare line, featured in Vogue Magazine, blends science with botanicals for a soothing, effective treatment.  Rorke's Skin Holistic line came from her frustration of not being able to find the combination of ingredients she was looking for.  "I created my own line.  It's marine botanical based with natural, organic yet active ingredients that work," she says.

"Venus Versa is an exciting option for skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, body contouring, and unwanted hair.  During treatments, radio frequency rejuvenates the appearance of skin by safely and comfortably heating tissue under the skin surface.  This triggers the natural production of collagen and elastin and prevents saggy skin," she says.  To see the results, Rorke recommends getting a Venus Versa treatment once a month for three to six months.  She has seen remarkable results with this treatment, saying "I have clients in their 70's and we are getting rid of wrinkles without fillers or Botox.  You look naturally good instead of having people ask, 'What did you do?', " Rorke says.  Buying a package is a great option to keep up with a schedule plan.

When asked what makes Spa Rockaway unique, Rorke says "All the therapists here are like family.  You can feel the positive energy.  We all really love working here and it comes through in our work.  We connect with our clients and all ages are welcome.  For example, we have 14 year olds with acne who come in, and we teach them how to care for their skin.."
