Massages at Jetaun's Massage Therapy are custom tailored to meet the needs of any sore back or tense shoulder. The licensed practitioners run down a playbook full of deep-tissue, sports, and hot-stone massage techniques that they blend and manipulate to address their clients' specific injuries and areas of discomfort.

After clients depart their tabletop havens, they can purchase candles, oils, and massage music that will turn any bedroom or crowded elevator into an oasis of tranquility.
Sometimes it takes more than medication to heal. That’s why Linda Wentz founded Holistic Touch Center and its mission to help hasten the healing process by offering services that extend beyond the body to incorporate the needs of the mind and spirit. There, Silvy Franco and Audrina Mei, the center's holistic estheticians, blend years of skin care experience with training in natural health and energy medicine to produce treatments that restore the body while rebalancing the mind and spirit. They read each client's skin like a map, plotting out appropriate treatment courses that are delivered as part of one of the center's rituals, which include components ranging from traditional facials and detoxifying peels to Vitamin C infusions and cold stone massages. In addition to performing these rituals, Silvy and Audrina also help clients adapt these treatments for use in at-home skin care regimens, keeping epidermises glowing and well-adjusted to changes in seasonal weather.

Alexandria's licensed massage therapists come from backgrounds that range from the US Army Reserve to the biomedical division of the Red Cross. They alleviate chronic tension with Swedish and deep-tissue techniques or the light pressure of craniosacral therapy.

Chinese Acupuncture & Herb Center's energy-directing duo of licensed practitioners draw on more than 60 years of experience administering holistic healing, publishing medical articles, and helming hospitals both in China and stateside to balance off-kilter bodies with ancient, holistic Chinese remedies. During a 60-minute acupuncture session, the perforation pro strategically inserts hair-thin needles across the body's pressure points, helping to release chi backed-up along the energy's pathways. Treatments go some way in relieving headaches, body pains, digestive problems, and injuries sustained from playing sports or watching sports with a gorilla who supports the rival team. Though the treatment is virtually painless, those unsettled by needles can substitute the pinpricks for electronic stimulation, low-powered lasers, or infrared light emitted from Captain Planet's hands.
