It's easy to feel like an emperor at either of Imperial Health Spa's posh locations. Each one boasts more than 30,000 square feet of space adorned with Romanesque columns and arches. There, guests can luxuriate in four Korean-style saunas, each one tapping into natural elements to evoke its own peaceful atmosphere. The salt brick sauna, for example, helps visitors to shed harmful toxins, while the red clay room helps boost blood circulation and expel pollutants from the skin. Between rooms, guests can refresh themselves with a game of Marco Polo in the massaging jacuzzi tubs or book professional spa services such as facials and body scrubs.
Dr. Lorne McFarland and Dr. Farnaz Shaygan treat painful areas in the neck, back, legs, and arms via manual chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy. When not straightening the spines of their clients at McFarland Chiropractic Group, Inc., both chiropractors spread their knowledge on carpel tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, and headaches during seminars at a local community center and in various elevators.
The primary mission of Feel Better Rehab Wellness Center is help people regain and maintain a healthy lifestyle through a diverse array of holistic healing techniques.

The facility also offers moisturizing skin treatments for dry skin as well as classes for setting personal wellness goals.
The aestheticians at Asava Medi Spa cleanse complexions with 12 kinds of facials, but their services don’t just run skin-deep.

Rich browns and greens cover nearly every inch of Origins Massage and Bodyworks, summoning the serenity of an ancient forest. Teeming with plant fronds, mud-hued walls, and dark wooden floors, this tranquil space encourages visitors to ponder beginnings, from the seedling that grows into a towering redwood tree to the sense of calm that springs from a gentle touch. Licensed massage therapists guide individuals and couples to private rooms, where warm beds and soft music help them shed stress from the outset. After the therapist compiles a health history, the client identifies tender muscles, stiff joints, and other sources of pain and tension. If desired, staffers may also perform skin treatments such as organic facials and exfoliating foot scrubs.
During the studio's signature Swedish massage, a therapist cultivates relaxation using long, flowing strokes, light taps, and gentle pressure. Each session is tailored to specific pressure preferences and may include trigger-point therapy if the client is suffering from muscle knots. To minimize friction and maximize comfort, the therapist may daub the skin with massage oil as smooth as a saxophone dipped in chocolate fondue.
