Saltana Cave hearkens back to an ancient tradition of spending time in salt caves and mines to treat respiratory ailments. Benefits of breathing in negatively charged ionized salt and other trace minerals may include improving the symptoms of asthma, allergies, acne, and eczema as well as decreasing the side effects of smoking. What’s more, Saltana Cave looks otherworldly—its literal tons of Himalayan salt rock create a relaxing environment with their pink glow. Soothing background music and zero-gravity lounge chairs help you get zen in this accessible retreat.

A steamed ball glides along the spine, the herbs inside it shifting with its twists and turns. This is Thai bomb therapy, a traditional treatment of acupressure zones that can trace its current incarnation back to Wat Pho temple in Bangkok, and it's one of several eastern-influenced therapies available at Enliven Body Work. The rest of the services are more familiar—deep-tissue massage, waxing, and a lineup of eight facials. The attention to detail that allows aestheticians to customize each of these facials to the client's skin type extends to the spa itself; when not being used for a service or as a practice surfboard, treatment tables are decorated with a pyramid of rolled towels topped with a flower.

Dr. Ching Chen, licensed D.O. and graduate of the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine, got into the medical practice for a somewhat surprising reason: she considers herself accident-prone. So, when considering her life’s path, she was naturally drawn to a field that would give her the ability to heal her own injuries and help others while keeping her clear of falling anvils. Through her current practice, Healing Station, she melds osteopathy’s approach to medicine—incorporating not only the physical aspects of a patient’s health but also the psychological and emotional—with such services as acupuncture, yoga, and nutritional analysis. Her specialties are physical medicine and rehabilitation, helping clients overcome maladies that range from headaches and minor sports injuries to obesity and sciatica. Before beginning any treatment, Dr. Chen sits down with the patient for a consultation, in which she openly communicates about the issue at hand and develops a treatment plan.
