If someone attacked a student of America's Best Defense Easton, they’d be in for a devastating surprise, probably in the form of a fist to the face or a knee to the groin. The gym’s black-belt instructors make sure students know how to defend themselves, offering a variety of programs that specialize in self-defense and fitness. They lead specialty krav maga classes that teach students the same fighting style used by Israeli Defense Forces, which focuses on subduing one or multiple attackers quickly and efficiently, whether they are unarmed or wielding weapons. Instructors also specialize in muay thai kickboxing, kids' karate, and adult martial-arts programs that blend styles such as karate, muay thai, grappling, and wrestling.
At Inner Health Colon Hydrotherapy, certified colon therapist Lori DeLang guides clients through cleanses of their digestive systems using the comfortable and modern Angel of Water system. Clients will receive an initial consultation before receiving the thorough cleansing treatment. Lori ensures that patients are comfortable during the 30–40 minute treatment, which gently voids the bowels of toxins and homework dating back to grammar school. A disposable nozzle introduces purified water into the lower digestive tract, softening and loosening matter so that it may exit the body freely. Call ahead or email Lori to schedule your colon-hydrotherapy appointment or to talk candidly about your favorite daytime soap opera.
SpaRenity welcomes visitors to a calming, secluded environment isolated from the stresses of everyday life. Within this setting, a team of aestheticians, massage therapists, nail technicians, and stylists works to indulge clients while revitalizing their appearances. Facials restore the skin's youthful radiance with the help of specialized serums and masks of seaweed and organic muds, which can help conceal signs of redness and boost collagen production. During mani-pedis, the technicians pamper clientele by incorporating heated stones, paraffin mitts and booties, or exfoliating scrubs into their treatments. Styling services range from simple trims to more advanced coloring options, which accentuate looks by adding highlights, lowlights, or miniature flashlights amidst the tresses. Although the massage therapists can alleviate stress with relaxation-inducing modalities, they can also use deep-tissue pressure to address mobility-limiting, pain-inducing knots.
Over the last 10 years, Skin Essentials Med Spa & Hair Salon owner Kelly Davis has prettified more than 1,000 faces with the SofTap permanent-makeup technique. She sidesteps the racket and pain of traditional tattoo-machine methods to gently apply the pigment with a hand tool, giving her absolute control to craft a subtle lip shape or a seductively arched brow. Guests can find similar attention to detail in the spa's repertoire of other beautifying services, from simple mani-pedis to advanced exfoliation peels that obscure signs of aging. Injections of Botox or Restylane keep skin surfaces as smooth as a pancake, and full-body scrubs and masks treat the whole physique to ensure that even your Achilles' heel embodies a beauty that belies its vulnerability.
The rustling of palm trees as tradewinds blow through them, the scent of saltwater carried in by rolling waves?nothing quite matches the carefree feel of a day on a beach in Hawaii, which is perhaps why The Wellness Journey Studio's owner Denise Baker-Bradley named her massage offerings after beaches on the tropical islands. But since she believes therapeutic massage therapy is not just for relaxation, these sessions have a therapeutic spin and can increase energy by lowering blood pressure. They can even improve sleep patterns better than keeping a closetful of sheep. During the Papohaku massage, for example, she rolls rods of bamboo over muscles to relieve deep-seated tension. For the celebrity facial massage sauna, she uses facial massage therapy techniques to reduce signs of aging. Before each stroke, she warms the massage oil, as clients stretch out beneath soft sheets and a soundtrack of beach sounds lulls them into a state of calm as deep as the ocean. The studio is located off Route 24 in Brockton.
