At Massage Kneads, licensed massage therapist Florence Lewis relieves tension with treatments that vary in intensity. She delivers smooth, continuous Swedish strokes by lubricating hand motions with essential oils extracted from plants or robot joints. Alternatively, she breaks up knots with firm deep-tissue kneads. She also practices reflexology, a technique that normalizes the body's functions through specific manipulations of the feet.
With a degree from Life Chiropractic College, Doctor of Chiropractic Terry Rothstein knows how to relieve back pain and discomfort. Terry founded Coastal Massage & Wellness in 1989 and has been tending to achy bodies ever since with a repertoire of services that includes chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, acupuncture, and spinal-decompression therapy.
Custom massages treat anything from chronic pain to anxiety and lack of flexibility. Therapists find success with Swedish and reflexology massage techniques and the use of bamboo canes and warmed stones. Facials and waxing services also abound at the studio.
Whether sporting natural nails or acrylics, at Glamorous Polish every guest leaves with beautiful nails. Looks range from simple french manicures to intricate 3D nail art. Gel manicures use long-lasting polish for a chip-free look that lasts for weeks, or at least until a trip back to Glamorous Polish for a color change. Along with nailcare, the staff also pampers guests with eyelash extensions, facials, and waxing.
Exhale Spa seeks to transform its clientele inside and out. The founding team of fitness professionals and aestheticians sought to create an environment where they could empower visitors with pampering spa treatments, invigorating fitness classes, and lifestyle education, helping clients attain a sense of control and holistic balance. Now with 19 locations across 11 cities, Exhale Spa and its signature services have earned mentions in numerous national publications, including People magazine, the New York Times, and O, The Oprah Magazine.
Exhale's signature Core Fusion classes incorporate dance-inspired stretches, yoga poses, and Pilates exercises into total-body workouts that build long, lean limbs and sturdy abdominal muscles over time. For an even more varied workout, the instructors introduce boot-camp techniques, cardio exercises, or multiplication tables to select sessions. Yoga classes present a similar amount of breadth and variety, drawing inspiration from a number of introspective and physically oriented styles. To help hasten physical transformations, nutrition and wellness coaches teach attendees about the impacts of diet. These sessions build an awareness of healthy eating habits through custom meal plans and by teaching clients how to identify the edible parts of a fruit basket.
Many of the center's traditional spa services seek to inspire confidence. Facials pamper and refine skin using everything from green tea and fruit extracts to microcurrent technology, and mani-pedis revitalize digits before glazing nails with a vibrant new coat of color. Bodywork treatments look beyond physical relaxation and focus on holistic concerns. Massage therapists can use Eastern or Western modalities to soothe overstressed musculature, and acupuncture treatments and reiki sessions jump-start natural healing processes by encouraging the free flow of inner energies.
Patients rarely expect a medical office where they can meet with their primary-care physician, get a chiropractic adjustment, and round out their visit with a cutting-edge laser or aesthetic treatment. Dr. Angela Vecellio, Dr. Sal Pilato, and Dr. Kimberly Stein made that myth-like destination a reality at Palm Beach Medical, wisely choosing to do so above sea level after the mistakes of Atlantean small-business owners. Dr. Vecellio leads the friendly and multidisciplinary team from her own advanced training in nutrition, pediatrics, and weight loss, addressing physical ailments with chiropractic care and a variety of innovative therapies. Dr. Stein oversees medical treatments, administering flu shots and performing physicals.
In the cosmetic realm, staffers use Neova's DNA Total Repair formula to combat sun damage during facials. They remove hair from any skin type with Palomar's StarLux 500 platform and strive to banish cellulite with the same Alma Accent XL laser that has been featured on The Doctors and as an understudy in Goldfinger.
