Certified and experienced personal trainer Joe Rich of Nutrition Concepts stimulates fat-destroying motivation through customized workout regimens and supportive guidance. Participants may bask in four 30-minute private sessions designed to articulate proper weight-lifting fundamentals or they can focus on shrinking their belt sizes from Saturn's ring to Pluto's claim as a planet. Personal trainers ask clients their goals and desires before constructing a challenging workout routine that emphasizes their abilities. In the comfort of the private, clean facility, clients storm the castle walls of their body, trimming exteriors, sculpting muscles, and building enough endurance to outlast the network syndication of MAS*H.
Meghan Jones had long been intrigued by the art and science of fitness—she earned her bachelor's degree in dance and exercise physiology—but it took personal experience to pique her interest in injury prevention. While recovering from a major car accident, she began to research therapeutic exercise methods, and eventually found her way to the Gyrotonic system's rehabilitating benefits. Her studies led her across the country, studying under Gyrotonic's creator, Juliu Horvath, along the way. Soon, she became a certified Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis instructor.
With a degree from Johns Hopkins University, Dr. Shauna Lee was well on her way to practicing internal medicine before discovering the efficacy of chiropractic techniques. For her, it’s all about locating the source of the problem. She views the body as a single, self-healing organism, and, instead of covering up pain with numbing medications, she aims to isolate the uncomfortable nerve with precision adjustments and soft-tissue massage.
Shanthy Jayakumar prescribed many medicines during the nine years she worked as a medical consultant for Mother Teresa Medicare in Sri Lanka, but you'd be hard pressed to find any of them in a typical drugstore. That's because her prescriptions consist of herbs, holistic therapies, and even certain types of food. According to Shanthy, many patients initially come to Harisa Massage Therapy & Ayurvedic Wellness Center for Western-style massages or organic facials, but return for the Ayurvedic medicine that she introduces to them.
Treatments such as herbal nasal cleansing absolve the body of physical impurities, and relaxing Shirodhara head massages quiet inner monologues or AM radio signals as a slow drizzle of heated oil drips onto the forehead. Panchakarma therapy cleanses the three Ayurvedic systems that govern the body by combining healing massage therapy with internal cleansing induced by carefully selected herbs.
At EuroSpa, founder Veronika Moran, who was trained at both an aesthetics school and dermatology school in Hungary, draws upon 20 years of experience to beautify patrons with spa services that find her sprinkling clients with Éminence Organic products. The all-natural ingredients in this skincare line from Hungary are handpicked and mixed in small batches and combined with thermal hot-spring water. Veronika chose this line in order to give her clients a more upscale spa experience without requiring the staff to wear tuxedos.
This devotion to luxury is seen the spa's facials, which lavish skin with Hungarian moor mud and blueberry peels, body wraps, which cocoon guests in mint or chocolate, and makeup applications, which transform faces with Youngblood mineral cosmetics. It's also evident in the high-tech far-infrared sauna and the private rooms for mani-pedis.
