St. James 1st Tee Fitness & Performance guides golfers through a complete golf fitness and performance program that focuses on injury prevention and swing consistency. Titleist Performance Institute-certified fitness instructors teach the principles of mobility and stability, ideals that help a player generate swing speed while correcting bad posture or a tendency to sneeze out lunch during a backswing. The instructors begin by assessing a golfer's physical health and limitations as well as their swing style, then design a fitness program to address these issues. Golf-specific stretches and exercises focus on improving balance, endurance, and pre-tap-in ribbon dances, ultimately increasing the consistency of the swing plane and improving the ability to hit the sweet spot. Rehabilitated golfers can practice their new swings on the in-house golf simulator, which provides a respite from bad weather and the expensive greens fees associated with the real versions of famous courses, such as Pebble Beach, Pinehurst, and Bethpage Black.
The shelves, drawers, and manicure stations at New Kim’s Nail and Spa are packed with a spectacular array of beauty tools, from nail files to professional waxing products to aromatic massage oils. Skilled specialists reach for these tools when administering nail and spa services, whether treating tired feet to warm milk soaks, protein masks, and organic homemade scrubs, or adorning fingernails in durable gel polishes. They expertly tattoo eyes and lips with permanent makeup, and lengthen lashes with glamorous extensions made from silk, mink, and unicorn tails when in-season. During massage sessions, therapists relieve tired muscles and aching spines with soothing hot stone treatments.
At Massagessence, licensed massage therapists combine ancient bodywork techniques with modern science. Swedish, deep-tissue, acupressure, and reflexology techniques relax and revive bodies or address specific areas of concern. Infrared mats, heated up to 158 degrees, enhance massages by accelerating detoxification, decreasing inflammation, and toasting skin to a delightful shade of golden brown. During reiki treatments, therapists call upon the original practices of Mikao Usui, founder of reiki, to foster a state of physical equilibrium. With strategic and intuitive palm placements, the practitioner transfers energy to the recipient.
