Some clients go to spas to boost wellness with ancient rituals. Others go for the technology that helps them look their best. New Spa Me Inc. serves both categories of clientele with services from both the holistic healing and med-spa worlds. Treatments such as Thai herbal therapy and shiatsu draw from Eastern healing traditions thought to align energy and restore inner balance without surgically removing inner seesaws. On the other side of the spectrum, radiofrequency facials employ radio waves to deeply penetrate and tone skin. Both kinds of services are conducted within private treatment rooms whose lights may be dimmed for a relaxing, candlelit atmosphere or brightened to ensure medically exact treatments.

Dr. Weatherspoon also transforms bodies from the outside in by administering mesotherapy to slenderize areas of stubborn fat, and injecting dermal fillers to combat wrinkles.

One part salon and spa, one part fitness center, Alaric Health Beauty and Wellness is a one-stop shop aiming to glam up, firm up, and wind down clients' bodies. Hairstylists sweep men?s and women?s manes into trendy styles and nourish scalps with deep conditioner and hydrating scalp treatments. During one-hour Swedish massages, long, flowing strokes untie knotted muscles and help rejuvenate auras cluttered with stress and stale boxes of chi, and basic and deep pore-cleansing facials exfoliate visages to help skin regain a youthful glow. Inside the full-service fitness center, bodies work toward fitness goals among rows of weight and cardio machines, and can attempt to expedite results with help from a personal trainer or prescription weight-loss program.

Lana's aim is not only to treat wrinkles and other signs of aging, but also to prevent them with healthful skincare regimes and creative visualization of soft, smooth baby cheeks.
