The staff at Lavar Spa know that colon cleansing is a personal, delicate matter. That’s why they’ve equipped each of their treatment rooms with fully automated cleansing systems. In complete privacy, clients undergo colon hydrotherapy, which flushes waste and toxins from the body with a gentle stream of water. During the procedure, they can watch television, read, or nap. Wafting aromatherapy candles, an airy color scheme, and plush treatment tables whisk away minds more effectively than a mad scientist practiced in sleight of hand. Afterward, most patients report feeling lighter and more relaxed, but hydrotherapy can also mute abdominal pain, headaches, and constipation.
Naturopathic physician, Marni Ross, invites clients into her office at Alma Wellness for noninvasive and completely natural treatments for health, vitality, and even beauty. Specializing in acupuncture, Dr. Ross unblocks energy channels and kicks healing and overall wellness into action; her treatments can alleviate a variety of maladies including digestive, urinary, reproductive, and cardiovascular issues. And though internal wellbeing is her calling, the doctor doesn’t disregard the importance of appearance. Cosmetic acupuncture, applied directly to the face, acts as a sort of nonsurgical facelift, both tightening skin and reducing lines, bags, and puffiness.

At Whole Body Nutrition, registered holistic nutritionist Kirsten Janz knows that even the most die-hard health fanatic sometimes gets tired of raw broccoli and asparagus. That's why she develops personalized diets and meal plans based on clients'—and their families'—personal tastes as well as their current health conditions. She allots for such vices as red wine and chocolate by working them into creative recipes so they won't compromise the benefits of more nutritious servings or feel insecure after sitting on the shelf for too long.
