At first glance, Good Day Total Health Clinic seems more like an opulent spa than a wellness center. Past the rich marble and plush furnishings in the lobby, vividly painted treatment rooms are interspersed with a serene fish pond and murals depicting cherry trees ironically holding apples. The varied, welcoming decor reflects the multidisciplinary approach to health provided by the doctors, specialists, and technicians who practice here. The team offers state of the art treatments for both wellness and beauty, from chiropractic care and acupuncture to rejuvenating massages and teeth-whitening treatments.
Your feet are soaking in a warm footbath while flower petals float on the surface of the water, giving off tropical fragrances. Or maybe you’re lying side by side with a loved one as you both relax to an aromatherapy foot scrub and full-body couples massage. Or perhaps you're getting your shoulders massaged as you rethink your decision to play Sisyphus in the town play.
These are just a few examples of the stress-relieving treatments you can experience at Su Massage Therapy & Chi Wellness Retreat, where therapists use both ancient and modern techniques with a singular goal: well being. They manage pain with Chinese herbal treatments and hot footbaths, as well as Swedish, deep-tissue, and pregnancy massages that induce feelings of deep relaxation and target sources of discomfort and tension.
Looking good and feeling good should go hand in hand, which is why the staff at Dante Salon & Wellness Spa has compiled a list of services that go beyond beauty to help treat full-body health. As stylists smother strands in products from Goldwell and Paul Mitchell, the in-house chiropractor stays busy addressing the needs of those suffering from chronic pain, using tender techniques that can include neuromuscular therapy or sport-specific stretches. Meanwhile, aestheticians coddle skin in Image Skincare professional products that soak into pores to remove dirt and exfoliate away dead skin cells before they have a chance to rise again as undead skin cells. Those looking to thwart wrinkles at the source can schedule a consultation with the onsite aesthetic-medicine physician, who can recommend injections of Botox, Juvéderm, or Restylane or write a prescription for Latisse for those looking to fill up sparse lash lines.
For clients of Magic & Health, the key to wellness isn't otherworldly, but the results do seem like the work of a fairy godmother. At this soothing Tyson's Corner studio, licensed massage therapists specialize in classic Chinese acupressure massage, applying pressure to the body's acupuncture points to release tension and encourage regeneration. Clients can also try reflexology, a form of foot massage based on the idea that points on the feet correspond to various internal organ systems and glands. By redirecting the body's energy pathways, therapists help to eliminate toxins and boost energy while simultaneously rejuvenating tired feet.
Cheyenne Liao and Chang Jiang Hu, the [team] behind Chi Wellness, were both inspired to pursue Chinese medicine and holistic healing by family members who practiced the science before them. Cheyenne, whose grandfather was an internationally acclaimed practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine, specializes in medical massage and uses her training as a registered nurse to improve her patients’ physical and physiological wellness. Chan Jiang is a licensed acupuncturist, who worked alongside his father at the Beijing Tian Tan Acupuncture Research Institute, and now specializes in treating a variety of medical problems, injuries, and detrimental lifestyle habits. Together they treat everything from migraines and carpal tunnel to sports injuries, whiplash, and chronic pain using traditional Chinese medicine, which has been utilized for centuries in the treatment of chronic conditions. In addition to medical massage and acupuncture, which can help patients in the treatment of pain, smoking cessation, and weight loss, clients can also benefit from a comprehensive array of treatments directed at specific conditions, including massage modalities such as Swedish, prenatal, and trigger point therapy, as well as herbal medicine. But no matter the treatment, both practitioners believe that the body should be treated as a whole, and work to promote full-body wellness through their targeted services.
SpaRelief LLC can administer spa services one by one, but that’s not their specialty. The staff of certified medical aestheticians and massage therapists, some of whom have trained with Aveda and Elizabeth Arden, are best at pairing together their luxurious treatments to create entire spa experiences. Aromatherapy blends designed to invigorate or detoxify contain botanical extracts, just like the spa’s private-label products of naturally derived and ethically sound ingredients. Extracts of pineapple, almond, and sea buckthorn enrich facials and massages alongside treats such as hot towels, paraffin dips, and love songs cooed to each vertebra by devoted massage therapists.
