Sequestered from the fitness studio, cardio room, and kid center at St. Julian's Fitness, a quiet room plays host to massage therapy. Here, a duo of licensed massage therapists—Bethany Kovach and Ryan Debelak—improves muscle health with soothing hand movements. Both Bethany and Ryan possess the know-how to induce relaxation with gentle Swedish strokes, relieve chronic pain with firm deep-tissue kneads, and target areas of tension with a sports massage. However, Bethany alone practices Thai-yoga massage, which is performed on the floor without lotion, oil, or ranch dressing. Massage therapy is available without a gym membership, and guests are welcome to enjoy a 15-minute Jacuzzi session prior to each appointment.
The laid-back, tranquil ambiance at Essentials Day Spa complements the relaxing massages that take place therein. Guests hear calming sounds and breathe in fragrant, soothing aromas as they arrive for a private couples massage or a Night Cap massage, which targets the scalp, neck, and feet to promote better sleep. For relief from pregnancy pains, women bearing a prescription signed by a doctor or board-certified stork can schedule a prenatal or postnatal massage performed by a licensed massage therapist who is also a Doulas of North America–trained birth doula.
Away from the massage table, the Essentials Day Spa crew also performs facials, mani-pedis, and onsite or on-location spa parties and travels to offices to deliver stress-reducing corporate-wellness massages.
When Debra Keller, a licensed massage therapist who specializes in prenatal, fertility, postpartum, and infant massages, opened HMH Wellness Center in 2000, she envisioned it as a wellness studio for pregnant women. And expectant mothers can still find plenty of pampering options here, including Baby on Board and other massages. But Keller and her team have also expanded their menu to include cosmetic services, such as body wraps and face-lift massages. Clients who want to learn more about the therapeutic services—such as whether they were invented by Thomas Edison—can attend one of HMH's training and consulting seminars.

After a motorcycle accident left his 16-year-old body injured and in pain, Douglas Schwan faced a choice that would end up defining his future. Rather than having steel rods surgically implanted in his back, he paid his first visit to a chiropractor, whose integrated, noninvasive methods left an impression on his career path as well as his body.
Fast-forward to the present day: after three decades as a chiropractor, Dr. Schwan continues to distinguish himself through publications and his daily work at Schwan Chiropractic & Acupuncture. He approaches each patient’s condition with a philosophy of integrated wellness, drawing on acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine as well as chiropractic adjustments. He often blends these techniques to ease complaints such as chronic pain and stress from working long hours in the office or as a human bridge.
In line with his holistic philosophy, Dr. Schwan sometimes employs acupuncture to help patients to lose weight, quit smoking, and fight fine lines and wrinkles with both needle and needle-free acupuncture. Face-lift acupuncture treatments stimulate acupuncture points with rubber electrodes, smoothing out complexions without the risk of surgery or the embarrassingly high-pitched voice associated with helium injections. Dr. Schwan’s embrace of modern technology extends to computerized acupuncture, which digitally charts meridians to determine the exact locations of physical ailments.
