Dr. Lien-jiun Lee and the spa therapists at Ageless Wellness Center combine traditional Chinese medicine with Western practices to holistically heal, rejuvenate, and relax bodies. Dr. Lee employs knowledge acquired while earning a master’s degree in Chinese medicine and psychology to provide oriental medicine treatments and analysis of why patients dream in Mandarin. Elegant Asian décor gild private treatment rooms where patients enjoy a variety of spa and wellness services including facials, massage therapy, colon hydrotherapy, and metabolism-boosting weight-loss programs.
Licensed acupuncturists Amy Rautner and Reggi Norton attend to various physical and mental maladies using the 2,500-year-old practice of Chinese acupuncture. This ancient technique restores balance to the body by unclogging congested energy pathways with the targeted pressure of tiny surgical needles, which can alleviate symptoms associated with ailments such as anxiety, depression, indigestion, headaches, insomnia, and lycanthropy. An initial consultation and treatment lasts approximately 90 minutes, and additional appointments elapse over the course of about one hour. Trypanophobics, children, and those apprehensive about being compared to a balding porcupine can opt for a needle-free session.
Clients at Meridian Wellness Center are steeped in relaxation from the moment they enter its tranquil facilities. In the lobby, verdant plants and vibrant flowers perch near stone sculptures as guests recline on plush chairs situated beneath earth-toned abstract paintings. Certified staff then lead them behind rich purple curtains and down a long hallway that opens onto private rooms, where they will lend their expertise in reflexology, acupressure, and acupuncture to help clients release stress, relieve back pain, and learn to love needles.
Since 1973, each of Sport&Health's clubs has aimed for full fitness coverage with programs for every taste and family member. Guests can spark positive lifestyle changes with workouts and wellness services, or engage in a variety of sports. Each facility houses different athletic amenities for games and laps, from pristine swimming pools to squash and racquetball courts. The camaraderie of group classes such as Zumba and Les Mills BodyPump barbell routines complement scores of club equipment meant for exercising solo—or with the guidance of a certified personal trainer. The clubs also emphasize kid-friendly activities with arts and crafts, Kidz Klub childcare, and youth certification courses that teach teens the ins and outs of training. Depending on the location, spa treatments can knead tension from muscles and paint one's favorite kettlebell with a layer of Shellac.
Cahra's experienced staff is committed to catering to each client, applying knowledge of current styles and trends while retaining individuality. The upscale, comfy atmosphere is home to many services, including haircuts and coloring, nail services, facials, waxing, massages, and more. Cahra's stylists are trained to tame any type of head mane with a cut ($47+ depending on level of stylist) and color ($80+), or remove back knots with the expert touch of a massage therapist's sailor-hands; Swedish ($90+), deep tissue ($98+), and hot stone ($110+) massages are available. The solar bronzing treatment ($75+) ensures bodies leave shining as brightly as a pile of burning VHS tapes, and eyelash ($25+) and eyebrow ($20+) tints accent a face's most difficult-to-locate sections of hair.
The experienced massage therapists at Rockville Medical and Disc Center LLC help ease tension from overworked bodies with one-hour massage services. The gentle pressure and gliding strokes of the Swedish massage increase relaxation, helping tight muscles unwind more easily than a butter-slathered clock. Muscles in need of a bigger jolt can opt for the deep-tissue massage, which delivers more intense kneads and firmer pressure to unfurl knots and dig out nesting aches and pains. Administered by a "laying on hands," reiki sessions aim to increase one's life force energy to reduce stress, promote healing, and intimidate inanimate objects.
