From energy level to sex drive, hormones affect many elements of our well being. At DFW Hormone RT & Low T, medical experts can help men and women correct their hormone levels to get their lives back in balance. Medical weight-loss programs, supported by B12 and slim shots, can help patients take control of their health. The center also works to turn back the hands of time by performing anti-aging treatments, administering injections of Botox and Juv?derm, and turning clocks upside down.
At The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas, all guests are treated like royalty. Situated in the heart of chic and trendy Uptown, the lavish hotel is all about pampering, whether it’s a Southwest-inspired dinner at celebrity chef-driven Fearing’s, cocktails in the Rattlesnake Bar, complimentary guacamole in the lobby or walking through the art-filled public areas before cozying up in a guest room. There, visitors can experience amenities that include gourmet coffee and tea, twice-daily housekeeping, complimentary overnight shoe shine and separate bath and shower with a luxurious rain shower head. For true indulgence, guests can try out the 12,000 square-foot spa that offers a variety of therapeutic treatments and services, plus separate men’s and women’s areas with large Jacuzzis, saunas, steam rooms and experience showers.
Laid-back, no-frills bar the Stoneleigh P is a welcome respite from all the see-and-be-seen bottle service spots that dominate Uptown. A Dallas institution for 40 plus years, this watering hole enjoys plenty of regulars who keep coming back for the cold canned beer and generous pours. A sprawling front patio faces the swanky Stoneleigh Hotel across the street, and fills up when the weather’s warm. Otherwise, there’s plenty to do inside, thanks to a pool table and a digital jukebox. Once you’ve worked your way through a few beers, there’s a full menu of food options to soak up the suds – think gumbo, quesadillas, sandwiches and a signature burger served on a unique pumpernickel bun.
In 1991, Aqua Medical Spa began as a modest, four-employee salon specializing in simple hair and nail treatments. The business rapidly grew to lavish clients with cutting-edge services that nourished the face and body, and by 2000, it had transformed into one of Dallas's first medical spas. Today, the spa continues to treat men and women with a unique combination of rejuvenating spa services and results-driven medical treatments. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ben Tittle leads a team of doctors and nurses in enhancing outer appearances with noninvasive Zerona laser treatments, Botox cosmetic injections, and plastic surgery. Spa specialists focus on inner well-being with both classic and high-tech services—including laser- and radio-frequency-based facials and massages that begin with a consultation and end with a careful analysis of the client's dream journal.
Faced with a world beset by workaday worries and ever-rising amounts of ambient anxiety, the healers at BalancingEnergy Health & Yoga Center drew a line in the sand. No stress makes its way past their threshold, preserving the serenity of a center filled with holistic treatments designed to restore health to its optimal state. Their mission targets the entire community, welcoming everyone from those seeking yogic enlightenment to people in search of a healthy way to lose weight. In rooms heated to 85 degrees, BalancingEnergy uses the Vinyasa flow method of yoga, which helps strengthen and elongate the body, and also offers core-strengthening classes and stretch and restore classes.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo 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, such as 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. Other machines whiten teeth, spray-tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning 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.
