The Spa at Seasons' relaxation experts dissipate stress and relax minds from the spa's perch overlooking Lake Pend Orielle. The A Little Bit of Heaven package commences with an express massage that silences complaining muscles without listening to their pleas or operatic arias, then refurbishes nails with an express manicure or pedicure and refreshes visages with an express facial tonic. The Athlete's Paradise package relieves exertion-related soreness through therapeutic kneading, and the environmental control facial slicks Dermalogica products onto skin to help heal sunburn and redness.
Chiropractor and licensed acupuncturist, Dr. Wendy Cunningham, addresses common health problems with natural solutions and treatments, including the ancient Chinese method of acupuncture. An initial consultation (a $35 value) lasts about 45 minutes and thoroughly discusses patient concerns before laying out an acupuncture treatment plan. During the course of two 25-minute acupuncture treatments (a $65 value for each), fine needles situate themselves along invisible meridians that run throughout the body from north to south. Like every M&M color, each point has a specific meaning and, when unblocked, can help facilitate the flow of vital energy throughout the body. The tiny needles increase blood flow and boost the production of collagen and elastin, allowing skin tone and color to improve, while ironing out fine lines like miniature metallic seamstresses.
The learned team of doctors and therapists at Avanti Health assuage chronic discomfort, pain from personal injury, and other health conditions with chiropractic and massage services. Before dipping into the dim, cozy treatment rooms, clients step into the Avanti Health office, which is illuminated by floor-to-ceiling windows that cast natural light upon a marble-top reception desk, verdant potted plants, and shadows giving each other massages. Fully dedicated to patrons' overall wellness, the staff also helps patrons shed excess pounds with programs for medical weight loss, dieting, and exercise.
Renew Mind & Body Spa, a cozy spa that is ensconced by greenery, small waterfalls, and ponds and filled with soothing, warmly lit rooms, hosts a team of licensed massage therapists who train healing hands on strained spines and taxed tendons. During the one-hour Swedish massage, Renew's muscle menders relax sinews, attenuate tension, and put stress to sleep with a combination of relaxing massage techniques and droning lectures on the inception of moist towelettes. Fluid strokes and varying pressures encourage muscle malleability, boosting circulation and bodies’ natural healing processes.
Founded in 1968 by the county’s first physical therapist, North Idaho Physical Therapy quickly made a name for itself by helping local athletes, loggers, and miners get back to doing what they do best. More than four decades later, the center has expanded to three locations and taken on a team of medical specialists whose expertise ranges from massage therapy to chiropractic. Though their specialties are diverse, the staff members share one important thing in common: They all emphasize individual care through customized treatment programs. These programs may include rehabilitative therapies, soothing ashiatsu massages, or strength training in preparation for long days of logging or sawing slow desktop computers in half.
Given the name, it should come as no surprise that Elements Therapeutic Massage pays extra attention to the basic elements of massage. One of these is compassion, and it follows that the staff takes care to match each client with the therapist best suited for the job. Borrowing from different modalities, therapists calibrate each session to one of four distinct levels of pressure. These levels encompass everything from gentle strokes to deeper trigger-point work and may relieve ailments such as stress, chronic aches, and shoulders stuck in a permanent, perplexing shrug.
