I have known Alison for at least 20 years and have never met anyone so professional, caring and gifted with skincare and mind/body health! I first visited Alison for basic facial waxing treatments. As I began to age, it was clear that I needed more skin care. Alison expertly began dermaplaning and facial treatments that made such a huge difference in my appearance. She made me feel better about the aging process because of her compassion and understanding of my complexion needs. In addition, Alison over the years helped my daughter with her teenage years by providing treatments to assist with acne. Alison’s makeup skills came into focus, as she provided the makeup assistance with my daughter’s wedding! We’ve never looked so good! Recently while Alison was dermaplaning my skin, she noticed a bump on my skin above my left eye. It caused me to visit the dermatologist and today I had a squamous cell growth removed from my face!!! If it hadn’t been for Alison’s attention to detail, I might never have noticed that I had skin cancer. I am so grateful that I have a caring esthetician like Alison to help me with my complexion. More importantly, Alison’s concern for my health and well being prevented a serious growth from progressing. At Inner Circle Spa, you will not only receive the most relaxing, comfortable spa experience, but you can rest assured that Alison is not only caring for your skin care needs, but your health and well being too! Thank you, Ali!

Stacey Potempa

Absolutely love this place. Have had great facials with Alison. Very soothing and my skin feels and looks amazing afterwards. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Desiree Campbell

So I have been going to Inner Circle Spa to see Alison for 7 years and absolutely love it! When I walk into her spa, I feel better already! The atmosphere and energy of her place is so welcoming and you feel like you never wanna leave. Her facials are to die for, you literally melt the second the facial begins. Skin felt so amazing afterwards! I also have done the reiki and fire reiki which are my ultimate favorites and a must each month. I would go everyday if I could! Yes she is the real deal when it comes to reiki, if you’re a skeptic of chakra healing, you won’t be after you see Alison. The first time I ever had a reiki done by her, I slept like a baby and felt such peace from within myself. I love love love this place and have brought my friends and family here over the years. I would recommend her place to anyone and everyone!

Beverly Lyons

I’ve been a client of Alison Pollock at the Inner Circle Spa since moving to Sarasota in 2015. I’ve had many facials in my lifetime but none that compares with what Alison’s skilled hands deliver. She’s honestly the best Esthetician I’ve encountered. A trip to the Inner Circle Spa is heavenly and something I always look forward too. I highly recommend this wonderful day spa.

Victoria Butler

Allison and staff are kind, compassionate and have the skills. You have not had a facial like the expertise of the ladies at Inner Circle. The services they offer are outstanding. One of the BEST in Sarasota.

Michele Burnett

I’ve enjoyed many of Alison’s services at Inner Circle Spa and have had amazing results. Her knowledge and incredible techniques never disappoint me. Alison has traveled the world and country training under the very best in the industry, which have set her apart from most. Having worked in dermatology and as a fellow aesthetician, for over three decades, I can attest that Alison is not only skilled, professional, knowledgeable she is also a pure treasure creating an atmosphere you won’t want to leave. I highly recommend, Alison and her Inner Circle Spa.

A relaxing period with wonderful results during a facial with Alison. I always look forward to my time with her and often find lovely items to give as gifts. Additionally Alison is a kind, helpful, caring practitioner whom I highly recommend. Eunice Okun

Elizabeth Burris

Alison is great at her job. She makes you feel relaxed and answers any questions about your procedure. I can tell her where my skin feels dry or rough and she’ll suggest a remedy and explain what that involves. Her recommendations always make me feel better. It’s a reward to myself to get a spa treatment with Alison. I always look forward to them.

Amy Kunkel

Alison definitely knows about skin care. I recently moved to the area and have been looking for a new esthetician for my microchanneling treatments. Great atmosphere and amazing service. Think I found my new home away from home 🙂

Barbara Kaepernik

I met Alison years ago, and finally made an appointment for a facial, What a wonderful treat! My skin looked amazing and the experiencer was quite relaxing! She is professional and at the same time relatable. I walked out feeling lovely inside and out. Looking forward to my next session❣️

Judie Berger

As a busy working professional, with a constantly changing schedule, it is very difficult to find time for myself. Carving out time to have a facial with Alison at Inner Circle Spa has become my R & R; it is like a mini-vacation every time. Using her years of knowledge, her facials and skin treatments are customized at each visit and I leave feeling rejunvenated and glowing. Her superior knowledge and the quality of the products she suggests and sells are top notch. She is always joyful to be with and treats you as if you are her only client. Do yourself a favor and take a mini-vacation with Alison. You’ll definitely go back for more!

Kathleen Roberts

Wanted to share my dermaplaning experience with Alison. I have very fair skin and play golf 2-3 times a week. Since I have been adding dermoplaning to my facials my dermo check ups have been so much easier. No freezing spots on my face and nothing needs removing. The dermoplaning gets the dead skin and keeps my skin texture smooth. Much rather visit Alison than walk out of the dermo’s office with a bandage on my face.

Kristelle Soto

Allison is a truly professional esthetician who provides the most personalized spa experience for her clients. She sources the most luxurious products that leave your skin glowing. I highly recommend for a pampering that feels like royalty. 👑

Michelle McLeroy

The best massage I ever experienced. It included stretching, my ideal pressure, and lasted a full 60 minutes. The spa has a calm atmosphere that’s revitalizing. I will certainly be back.

Sara Rose

The Inner Circle Healing Therapies Facial is a life-changer. I don’t think I ever thought I’d say that about a facial, but this particular facial is so much more than that! I noticed an immediate difference in my complexion and the tightness of my skin. I feel as though my skin is actually glowing again. Beyond the physical results, I only wish I could show you what it looks like to have a thousand pounds of heavy weight lifted. Words cannot describe the emotional and spiritual impact of this incredible therapy. I will forever be grateful for Alison’s extremely skilled, compassionate and personalized healing work.

As a person with very high expectations, The Inner Circle Spa exceeded all my expectations! So happy to have found this gem!

The Inner Circle Spa is The Best

Eli Di Virgilio Fitness

If you are looking for the best spa in Sarasota you are in the right place! Before meeting Alison, owner of The Inner Circle Spa, I would not let anybody do any treatment to my face. After getting some really bad acne and consequent scarring a few years ago, I was afraid to do anything to my skin. Then I met Alison and she reassured me that we could improve my skin appearance without causing any negative reaction. So we started to do a combination of facials, peelings, micro needling and derma planing and now, two years later, I feel like my skin has so dramatically improved it must be a dream! Alison is a wonderful esthetician and a wonderful person. I would highly recommend her not only for facials but also for make up and reiki massages. She is extremely personable and professional and a delight to be around!

Ali Tahiri

In addition to receiving acupuncture, Sera Balderston at Inner Circle Spa has guided me through a nutritional supplement support and herbal / detox treatment. Acupuncture has been a great way to help relieve some tension (and jaw clinching), help me relax, and benefit my overall health and well-being. If you need an acupuncture treatment or guidance to improve your health, go see Sera.
