Ralphann G. Forrest recently expanded skin care services now being offered at Gerlinde’s Health Spa, located on Route 17, Hayes.

Gerlinde’s Health Spa is located in the same building as Hayes Therapeutic Muscle Center, a new name for the business previously known as Hayes Therapeutic Massage Center. Both businesses are owned by Gerlinde Stevens, who has over 50 years’ therapeutic massage experience.

Forrest said one big change has been the addition of "anti-aging facials." A licensed esthetician and skin therapist, Forrest said she sometimes applies a glycolic mask to help improve the skin. All facials begin with a deep-cleaning procedure, she said, and various levels of exfoliation may be offered.
