Jay Rifkin is simply the best facial specialist ever. And I've been getting body work for over 40 years, since becoming a nationally-ranked Masters Swimmer. Deep tissue massage for me is essential with a routine of strenuous exercise. What about relaxation? Thank goodness I discovered facials, but forget the average, sweet, well-meaning young person at a resort or most salons with a whisper-touch. Jay is an artist, blending a variety of materials, textures, strokes. Incredible.
