Once cited as a Spa to Get the Red Carpet Treatment in the Editor’s Pick section of 944 Magazine, The Chocolate Day Spa indulges its clients with spa services as decadent as a box of chocolate truffles. During a whoopie-cream massage, the spa’s signature shea-butter lotion softens skin and prevents friction as the massage therapist applies gentle pressure and performs gliding strokes. A treat for the senses, the chocolate-scented massage immerses clients in the aroma of cocoa to save them the trouble of visiting the great chocolate lakes of Appalachia. The spa even takes the guilt out of the indulgence it encourages by providing such slimming treatments as infrared-sauna sessions and Endermologie treatments. Inside the med spa, laser light works to lift faces, tighten eyes, and plump lips, and Botox and Juvéderm reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., women and men alike head into My Head 2 Toe for relaxing reflexology and massage services. A state-licensed therapist instills clients with relaxation via massages ranging from deep tissue to prenatal to shiatsu. Either inside My Head 2 Toe's general open area or inside a private treatment room, clients can enjoy reflexology packages incorporating techniques first used by ancient Egyptians that promote more blood and lymphatic flow than a rapping hematologist.
The team at Balance in Motion's well-rounded, holistic studio doesn’t believe in merely treating symptoms as they appear. Instead, they strive to promote health through chiropractic services, physiotherapy, massage therapy, energy-stimulating acupuncture sessions, nutrition and weight loss services, Pilates, and K-laser treatments designed to release endorphins and improve lymphatic drainage.
SweetSweat Spa offers infrared-sauna technology, which Oprah tried out on a recent episode. Unlike a conventional sauna, the infrared Sunlighten sauna uses the UV-free infrared band of light to raise your core body temperature, causing the corpus to sweat and release evil toxins such as devil's tears, troll toe-jam, and maple syrup. Each 40-minute session can burn up to 700 calories, break down cellulite, improve skin complexion, strengthen the immune system, lower blood pressure, and provide a variety of other health benefits. An infrared-sauna session can even clear the brain of fog and other forms of mental cloud-cover caused by the condensation of thought bubbles.
