Using knowledge acquired while earning a degree in exercise science, Phillip helps clients transform their daily routines by assigning achievable fitness and nutrition goals.

Orthossage leaves no doubt that its therapists know what they’re doing: every week, they participate in continuing-education courses to stay up to snuff on their craft. That dedication enables the Orthossage team to deliver a wide array of modalities, including an advanced orthopedic technique that focuses specifically on muscle attachments. No matter the type of massage a client chooses, though, Orthossage enhances every visit with aromatherapy, topical muscle pain reliever, and steamed towels. The facility also provides 3D anatomical photos so clients can see what groups of muscles get worked on without having to dissect a mannequin.
The up-to-date lasers at Belallure Laser & Wellness Center are a triple threat—they can reduce unwanted hair growth, erase tattoos, and obscure signs of aging. Noninvasive Laser 360 treatments compound photonic wonderment by toning crinkled skin, smoothing out wrinkles, and balancing discoloration. The physician-supervised team also inspires overall well-being with an arsenal of more traditional spa treatments. Hot-stone and Swedish massages, for example, relax musculatures, whereas a set of facials brighten complexions better than neon blush at a blacklight disco.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas?its more than 250 locations blanket 36 states and eight countries?Planet Beach Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. The range of services include total skincare, wellness, weight management, relaxation and renewal treatments. Other machines whiten teeth, spray-tan skin, and massage muscles. Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
On the surface, Anew MediSpa looks like an upscale spa, with a homey waiting room decked out in hardwood furniture and sunny yellow paint. The services fit the bill, too: traditional facials, waxing, and massage therapy among them. However, the center boasts a medical director, Dr. Ashley Chin, who personally administers all injections of Botox and Juvéderm. It's her medical expertise, paired with the center's state-of-the-art technology, that gives Anew its edge.
Dr. Chin oversees the safety of the med spa's laser treatments, which include hair and spider-vein removal, skin tightening, photofacials, and acne treatments. Despite the reliance on technology, Dr. Chin and her team of aestheticians are personally invested in each treatment, maintaining a professional-and-inviting atmosphere that makes clients feel at ease.
The technicians at Body Sculpt Xpress dedicate themselves to ultrasound-cavitation body sculpting, a noninvasive technique already popular in Europe and Australia and featured on The Dr.Oz Show. They customize treatments based on the thickness of fat and its distribution throughout the body.
