Affiliated with the American Naturopathic Medical Association and the American Alternative Medical Association, Wojciech Konior, ND, TNC, launched Natural Medicine Center to help those interested in pharmaceutical-free healing. Believing that all illness results from imbalances within the body, Dr. Konior performs alternative diagnostics, such as hair-tissue-mineral analysis and timing how long it takes patients to build a ship in a bottle, to identify the source of maladies. Recommended care may integrate a range of treatment approaches, ranging from dietary changes and supplements to exercise and detoxification therapy. Dr. Konior can also help arrange care with a network of other practitioners, such as massage therapists, chiropractors, and acupuncturists. To further support clients' lifestyles, Natural Medicine Center houses a store filled with health products, including herbs, vitamins, and minerals, as well as natural and organic items for the home, hygiene, and homes that refuse to bathe.
Tension and stress melt away at International Steam Baths, where guests lounge within the steamy chambers of a Russian steam room, relax inside an infrared sauna, or high-dive into a cold plunge pool. Inside private treatment rooms, spa-goers receive more than five types of massages or a body wrap blended from black mud and seaweed. Guests can also get a breath of fresh air on the outdoor deck or visit the restaurant, where bright orange walls surround tablecloths covered in strawberry designs.
Whether clients seek hair extensions, mani-pedis, or waxing, they can turn to the expert staff at Elegant Beauty Salon. In business for five years, the salon has an extensive service list that covers hair, skin, and makeup; they even enhance eyes with dramatic faux mink lashes.
Nationally and state certified massage therapist Kristine Pilsbury draws on more than six years of massage experience and an education in natural healing to help clients achieve physical, mental, and spiritual wellness. She works in a studio located within The Advanced Center for Spine Care in Saddle Brook. There, she tailors treatments to each individual's needs, blending modalities such as neuromuscular massage and Swedish massage, while focusing on balancing energy.
If you're in the market for a new look, look no further than Marijosie Unisex Salon. The salon's stylists and aestheticians team up to complement their clients' natural beauty with a full range of haircuts, manicures, and waxing services. The stylists are particularly adept at matching the right style to each client's face, regardless of whether that client has been blessed with curls, straight locks, or a head infested with snakes. The aestheticians turn their attention to the body itself, beautifying skin with makeup applications, eyelash treatments, and bikini waxes.
In 2005, Sandra Gutierrez was stressed and overworked. She found relaxation at a spa, but not in the way you'd think. Sandra discovered that helping others feel better also made her feel better, so she started a new career as a licensed massage therapist.
That career has since blossomed, and Sandra now kneads muscles daily at Euphoria Massage & Spa. Along with five other therapists—all of whom she personally trains—Sandra eases tension with Swedish strokes and relieves aching necks, backs, and shoulders with trigger-point techniques. While Sandra and her team focus on relaxing muscles, Euphoria's resident aesthetician cleanses and detoxifies skin with clay body wraps and sea-salt scrubs. Treatment sessions unfold inside spacious rooms, where soft piano music drowns out the sound of your boss banging on the spa's window, asking for that TPS report.
