collection of offerings is so unique and progressive, that while recently promoting
the Spa at an international conference, we received tremendous praise from some
of the top-rated spas in the United States and Caribbean," said Sam Scalise,
president and CEO of Scalise Group.
With luxury lodging available
on site, a vast array of spa and wellness services including medical-grade procedures,
specially formulated nutritious spa cuisine and a state-of-the-art fitness center,

menu of services has something for everyone, from basic to clinical to holistic,
and even includes teen treatments," Tammy
Pahel, managing Cinzia Spa at North Beach Plantation and President of the
Consulting & Management firm Spa Management Solutions explained. "And
while we actively cater to the local community, particularly with a multitude
of rewarding and affordable membership packages, Cinzia Spa will draw serious
spa goers from outside the area as well. Many of those people will be new visitors
to the Grand Strand who will stay a weekend, a week or even a month at North Beach
Plantation. Once they're exposed to all we have to offer, I imagine we'll see
several spa guests purchasing ancillary homes on the property."
Beach Plantation is a 60-acre development stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to
Highway 17 in North Myrtle Beach, SC. Combining old south charm with modern conveniences,
the self-contained luxury residential resort, when complete, will boast 750 oceanfront
condominiums, townhouses and single family homes and include upscale boutique
shopping, gourmet dining and of course, the world-class spa and wellness center,
which Scalise and Pahel strongly believe will help drive the ultimate success
of the development.
The scale of the entire project, its lavish
amenities and Scalise Group's reputation for quality and attention to detail attracted
a team of highly skilled professional providers and wellness visionaries from
all over the country who are now actively involved in the spa. (Pahel herself
relocated from Miami to develop and launch Cinzia Spa at North Beach Plantation.)
Most notably is Seymour Weaver, III, M.D., a respected pioneer cosmetic dermatologist
and surgeon from Houston who will head up the wellness component within the spa
called Celestial Skin and Wellness by Dr. Seymour Weaver.

patients achieve healthy skin, a healthy shape and a healthy state-of-mind,"

rejuvenating skin treatments, cosmetic enhancements and medical-grade facials,
body shaping techniques, cosmetic dermatology and laser procedures, and a whole
host of life enhancement treatments that range from life coaching to hypno-therapy
to acupuncture and chiropractic care - even a sleep specialist.
the more progressive treatments offered at Cinzia Spa at North Beach Plantation
is the sound and chakra therapy known as Satori. Though elements of it are ancient,
it has recently been modernized by physicians and scientists as a non-pharmaceutical
method to treat Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, particularly in soldiers returning
"Satori therapy is deeply meditative and
its benefits are immense in achieving an overall clarity that aids people in their
daily life and helps them achieve goals," Pahel said. "We're the first
spa in the U.S. to launch structured Satori therapy programs for smoking cessation
and weight loss on our wellness menu."
A tranquil environment

Plantation according to Pahel. "Our staff has been recruited from all over

journey by nurturing hands and supported by thoughts of serenity."
