When one of the cofounders of Easy Balance Wellness Center and Spa was diagnosed with cancer in her 30s, her doctor put her on the most aggressive chemo and radiation therapies available. As her immune system fought the cancer, her body absorbed the side effects. A longtime friend recommended acupuncture to counteract the suffering; though she was initially skeptical of the holistic procedure, she agreed to give it a try. After just one appointment, she felt her senses awaken. Further treatments permanently changed the way she looked at health care, making her feel like a brand-new person and convincing her to share her discoveries with as many people as she could.

At Easy Balance Wellness Center and Spa, she does just that, combining venerated Eastern wisdom with professional spa products to deliver healing massages and rejuvenating facials. Within earth-toned treatment rooms draped with russet curtains, massage therapists ease muscle tension and redirect chi—the energy that regulates the body’s functions and suppresses its natural appetite for hangnails—with focused acupressure techniques. Thalgo facials employ marine botanicals, such as regenerative algae, to nourish and hydrate complexions.

The certified massage therapists and holistic healers at Om Chakra invite guests to discover deeper mind-body connections inside a sanctuary designed to foster states of sublime serenity. Warm earth tones, zen-like decor, and five private, candlelit treatment rooms envelop guests during multisensory experiential massages or healing reiki sessions, coaxing them to unplug from the synthetic, bustling external world and explore a space within themselves that remains still and calm. This sense of calmness, the staff believes, stems from successful alignment and unblocking of the seven energy channels, or chakras, that run along the spine.

LaVida Massage believes massages should be available to everyone. They back up this belief not only by offering a wide range of techniques—athletes, mothers-to-be, and office workers alike can find a modality to suit them—but also by making the massage process easy. Each of their massage sessions last 60 minutes: the middle 50 minutes are reserved for the massage itself, and the last five minutes allow time for redressing. The five minutes that precede every service go toward a consultation where clients can discuss individual concerns, such as neck tension from leaning over a computer keyboard or foot soreness from driving their car like the Flintstones.

Reflexology: Tracking Energy from Head to Toe

Though reflexology shares much in common with acupuncture, it has its own unique properties and origins. Read on to learn more about the practice.

In the early 20th century, you might have been able to identify patients coming from a reflexology appointment by the clothespins on their fingertips. Today?s reflexologists generally carry out their treatments by hand in a wellness clinic or a massage studio, but the principle remains the same: apply pressure to specific points on the hands, feet, or ears, prompting responses in organs throughout the body.

Similar to acupuncture and acupressure, the practice posits that energy pathways run throughout the body. Reflexology?s system, however, is a bit simpler than Chinese medicine?s complex map of meridians. Envision vertical lines running from each toe up through the leg, joining lines running from each finger up the arm toward the neck and coming together in the head, and you have the body divided into 10 attractively slimming reflexology zones. Within each zone on the palm or?most common in reflexology sessions today?the sole, certain pressure points are thought to correspond to organs, joints, or other tissues elsewhere in the same zone.

Dr. William Fitzgerald?originator of the clothespin technique?began practicing what he called ?zone therapy? in 1915. While research has yet to find a concrete link between modern medical thought and the millennia-old idea of imperceptible bodily energy, that doesn't mean reflexology can't be relaxing. Patients can expect the benefits of a treatment to include at least those of a good foot massage: increased circulation, relieved muscle tension, and decreased stress and susceptibility to tickle attacks. Even early proponents of the technique accepted that results might vary from person to person. Writing in 1928, physician Bernard Lust was content with claiming that ?the adoption of the method is attended with absolutely no danger or disagreeable results, and may be the means of lengthening short lives and making good health catching.?
