Frenette Dor, the owner of Dor Life Spa & Wellness Center, finds great joy in being an intricate part of the wellness of others. As a state-licensed, certified massage therapist, aesthetician and skincare specialist, she has been in the business for 15 years, moving to a new, larger location in May.
“We are now in the original Wellington Mall in a bigger, nicer location where we can offer more services,” Dor said. “My clients choose my spa because my job is not finished until my client is satisfied.”
In fact, client satisfaction is her top goal. “There are many spas in Wellington, but what sets me apart from them is that I make sure that each client feels like they are the only customer I have,” Dor said. “I always strive to make certain that my clients feel like their service was like no other they have ever experienced.”
The staff at Dor Life Spa includes a holistic doctor, registered nurse, nurse practitioner and therapists providing complete services for massage therapy, facials, bio-therapy, nutritional therapy, weight loss and weight maintenance treatments with an emphasis on eating clean and healthy, skin care, contouring, medical-grade chemical peels and more.
Dr. Melissa Peters is a certified holistic nutrition practitioner. A member of the National Association of Nutrition Professionals and the American Holistic Health Association, Peters focuses on increasing the “gut-brain” function, as well as power, strength and endurance among individuals and athletes.
Recovering from severe health issues of her own lead Peters to return to school in order to better care for herself and her family. Earning a master’s degree in health and nutrition education and a doctorate in holistic sports nutrition, she has also worked as a health coach and conducted research in nutritional protocols for Alzheimer’s prevention.
Peters is an expert on genetic and environmental factors pertaining to optimal nutrition. Like Dor, she is passionate in her efforts to enable clients to achieve wonderful health through the use of proper nutrients, knowledge and guidance. She works with a broad range of clients, including children and adults.
Marthany Jean Baptiste has been a registered nurse since 2012. As a nurse, she has focused on crucial care and emergency room nursing and has also worked as a personal trainer. She has a bachelor’s degree in physical education with a primary focus on exercise science.
Baptiste earned her bachelor’s degree in nursing from South University in West Palm Beach. She is a new mother of her daughter, Renee, and is an active board member for a nonprofit organization promoting wellness in the community.
With extensive experience, many certifications and a decade-and-a-half in the spa and wellness business, Dor puts her focus on holistic methods, noting that they can be powerful painkillers without the side effects. “Massage is for more than just relaxation,” she said. “Natural painkillers released can help with chronic pain.”
The spa offers a long list of services.
“We offer a number of services that benefit so many different factors,” Dor said. “This would include doctor-endorsed nutrient body sculpt. Our formulation has been effective in a variety of consumer settings. Many clients see benefits after just one or two sessions and immediately start feeling more toned and relaxed.”
At the spa, Dor and her team use specialty products to optimize the benefits of the services.
“Our propriety solution is vegan,” Dor said. “It is a natural, premium product that tightens and tones, improves body contour, lifts thighs, buttocks and breasts, minimizes fine lines, improves mental clarity, relieves stress and relaxes the body.”
Several of the services are for people suffering from chronic pain.
“Another service is the laser and massage therapy blended approach, which deals with a broad range of soft tissue and repetitive stress injuries,” Dor said. “This method provides significant results for the elderly and patients suffering from conditions previously thought hopeless.”
Many of the services are preventative in nature, helping clients live a healthier life.
“I offer cardio-metabolic testing that helps assess the risk for developing conditions such as heart disease or diabetes,” Dor said. “This micro-nutrient analysis can yield powerful information that can be used to improve individual health status.”
Dor also offers the products used in her therapy to clients. “We are proud and excited about our partnership with the Circadia by Dr. Pugliese brand of products,” she said. “We are using Circadia professionally, in the treatment room, and we also have a comprehensive selection of Circadia retail products available for sale to all of our guests. This affordable luxury brand is known for its results-driven products that are manufactured in the USA.”
Other services offered at Dor Life Spa are enzymatic and traditional facials, “Zero Down Time” chemical peels, the liquid “Oxygen Rx” facial system by Circadia, the Switch Dermal Rejuvenation System by Circadia, nutrient body sculpts, hormone and thyroid testing, EpiFree hair removal and Vivace Fractional Micro Needle RF therapy.
Dor Life Spa will hold a special event on Friday, Aug. 24 from 2 until 6 p.m. Product demonstrations and explanations will be available.
“The event includes an exciting product, Xeomin, that is used by Christy Brinkley — age 63, an actual Xeomin and ultra-therapy patient and advocate,” Dor said. “Xeomin is highly purified, FDA approved and clinically proven to temporarily smooth lines between the brows. We will have drinks and light bites. There will also be package deals available. A $50 deposit reserves a client’s spot.”
Dor is excited about her first few months in the new location. “The business is expanding as more and more people find how exceptional our services really are,” she said.
