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.
Althea Medspa is named for the althea flower, or hibiscus, which is well known for its beauty and healing properties. Inside cozy, private rooms, Althea's team upholds the transformative spirit of this flower when boosting clients’ beauty with professional laser services, cosmetic injections, and infrared therapy. A professional designer was hired to outfit Althea Medspa with a tranquil atmosphere, harnessing the calming practices of feng shui and a fountain to soothe visitors and vacationing flying fish.
Before Dr. Jason Winseck became a doctor of chiropractic medicine, he was a high school student with a debilitating sports injury. After waiting for his lower back pain to resolve itself, he went to a local chiropractor and received both an accurate diagnosis and fast relief. This experience inspired him to learn more about how chiropractic techniques worked, so he spent weeks shadowing his doctor after school and observing the physician's attentiveness with each patient. After high school, Jason enrolled in New York Chiropractic College and graduated in 2002 after enduring a challenging curriculum. He later opened Cascades Chiropractic, where he assuages bodily aches with adjustments and massages and clears out cellular waste with detoxifying treatments. When he isn't helping his patients achieve health, he maintains an active lifestyle by golfing, fishing, and running with his chocolate lab, which he bought at a candy store.
At It’s About Health, the staff cares about every individual. Recognizing that each patient they treat has particular health concerns, the staff members offer a variety of options to help customers improve their well-being. This includes everything from IonCleanse detoxifications to far-infrared-sauna or hyperbaric oxygen-chamber treatments. Ultimately, they want to focus on keeping their patients not just looking good, but feeling great. That’s why clients can also obtain nutrition and workout plans with the help of staff members instead of purchasing chatty parrots that remind them to take their supplements.
Board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology, Dr. Melissa Delgado opened her office in the hopes of providing women with a one-stop hub for health and wellness treatments. In addition to general women’s checkups, the Spanish- and English-speaking physician specializes in chronic pelvic pain, offering minimally invasive surgeries, medicines, and acupuncture treatments as options for managing pain. Her office also delivers skincare services that enlist state-of-the-art laser systems, including Pixel skin rejuvenation, laser hair removal, and light therapy, to alleviate skin conditions or smite unwanted fuzz.
Seoul Spa introduces visitors to the healing traditions of the Korean jjimjibang, or sauna, including stone-clad pools of cleansing warm water and soothing, herbal remedies.
The sauna detoxifies and cleanses bodies with nature-based healing services for women, or with specially constructed rooms for all visitors, such as the himalayan salt room––made with calcium-packed pink salt rock––the oxygen-rich wood-charcoal room, or the refreshing ice room. Dips in herb-infused waters make guests feel like pampered royalty, while video game sessions in the multiplayer PC room allow visitors to step away from the spa, unless they play a spa war game.
After sweating in the sauna or building up muscle in the fitness center, visitors can replenish themselves at the full-service restaurant. Low tables and cushy pillows invite diners to sit cross-legged on the floor, a perfect posture for enjoying cool glasses of bubble tea and fruit smoothies or bowls of udon and ramen.
The staff at Help For Health boosts clients' self confidence and natural beauty with a roster of detoxifying services that promote weight loss and well-being. LipoLaser body sculpting and whole-body vibration sessions can work to contour the body, and lymphatic-drainage therapy and far-infrared saunas encourage the body to secrete toxins through sweat and peer pressure. All treatments are natural and sustainable and come accompanied with a ton of information to keep clients in the know about the services and their own body's natural responses.
