Savon Spa's Parisian theme speaks to its Old-World luxury, whereas its emphasis on organic ingredients in handmade soaps and lotions belies an utterly modern eco-consciousness. The menu is determined to reach beyond standard spa fare by featuring a host of all-natural add-on services, such as vegan nailcare products that don't derive their color from pigmented bugs or pigs born with entirely too much pink. Botanicals are even directly incorporated into the French bamboo massage, in which a therapist applies focused pressure with bamboo sticks and organic oil to dissipate tension. The aestheticians and anesthesiologist on staff use their expertise to apply injectables and laser treatments that deliver natural results.
The spa also provides mobile services, dispatching staff members to transport custom treatments to in-home parties or office spaces. The professionals tote along all the spa accoutrements, from robes and slippers to soothing music.
Many businesses offer massage therapy, but few are able to identify and treat the source of the problem. But that's exactly what happens at The BodyLux Rx, a wellness center that's home to 20-year chiropractic veteran Dr. Kathleen Morris. Although the clinic's massage therapists untie tricky muscle knots with massage services for athletes, moms-to-be, and anyone else who suffers from achy muscles, that's only one part of the center's efforts to relieve pain. Like birds who camp out all night in front of worms' houses, patients who schedule appointments with Dr. Morris get so much more, from in-depth orthopedic and neurologic testing to chiropractic manipulation of the full spine and extremities.
The decor at The BodyLux Rx is as modern as the treatments. All rooms have individual sound and lighting controls, and guests can bring an MP3 player to their appointment so they can listen to their own collections of soothing tunes or gibbon mating calls as they lie back on crisp linens. First-time massage subjects should consult The Bodylux's helpful tips page to prepare for an appointment.
