Kathy Sisk, Licensed Massage Therapist
Kathy’s tool box is full of a variety of modalities including Swedish Massage, Jin Shin Do Acupressure, Reiki, LaStone Therapy, Craniosacral Therapy, Reflexology and Pre-Natal Massage. With her move to Polished Salon and Spa, she began practicing Bamboo Fusion Massage, a new technique that “rolls out” the muscles much like a rolling pin rolls out dough. It’s extremely relaxing yet energizing at the same time.
Kathy’s professional experience includes working at Foxhollow by the River Wellness Spa, Apex Massage Center, Crestwood KORT Physical Therapy, Pure Image Apothecary and Spa and Polished Salon and Spa. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature from Hiram College and worked for Humana Inc. and the Louisville Convention and Visitors Bureau prior to her career in massage therapy.
Michael Cecil, Esthetics
"A good friend told me a long time ago, along with Norman Vincent Peale, 'change your thoughts and you change your life,' " says Michael. This philosophy is evident as you enter her treatment room. Her space sweeps you into a calming comfort where balance is the goal, for your skin as well as your entire being.
Michael is professionally trained in the Dermalogica skin care line. As a healthier, more effective alternative to providing chemical peels, she performs Intense Light Therapy (IPL). IPL is a noninvasive treatment that requires no recovery time. It uses a gradual approach involving a series of light therapy sessions that even skin tone, smooth texture, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen production. In addition to her extensive facial menu, she also provides full body waxing; her large waxing clientele has coined Michael the 'Waxing Guru'.
