At her holistic wellness center, Vanessa Galati restores health and vigor to ailing bodies through an array of detoxification procedures and technologies. Her Colenz hydrotherapy system aims to gently and naturally restore hydration to the colon while ridding it of toxic impacted materials and aiding in the assimilation of nutrients. Other remedies in her repertoire include an infrared sauna and an ionic footbath, which uses a mix of positive and negative ions to draw bodily toxins through reflex points of the feet. Slimming body wraps use far-infrared heat to reduce fat and cellulite.

The spa also offers couples massage, which is almost as romantic and relaxing as falling asleep beneath the table at a fancy French restaurant.

The practice of ayurveda holds fast at the core of Herbal Destination, put there by a trio of female owners who use the philosophy of traditional Indian medicine to enhance their clients' lives through natural skincare products, healing supplements, and a yoga DVD. The store's herbal-care solutions include a paraben-free muscle oil rub and soothing Stress Hrx pills, and all of the offerings are formulated and blended at advanced facilities in India.

Each Ayurvedic formula contains a mixture of three or more herbs and arrives sealed in blister packs of 60 soft gels or capsules to maintain freshness and potency. Customers who opt to focus on their skin can try the store's all-natural, four-piece skincare line that pampers skin with an apricot anti-wrinkle night cream, an herbal moisturizing cream, a deep-cleansing scrub, and a cucumber eye cream. As part of its commitment to sustainability, Herbal Destination's team wraps all products in eco-friendly and recyclable packaging.
