D's Yoga Home's certified instructors and holistic healers foster a community of mind-and-body wellness with eclectic yoga classes. Like Baldwin brothers, the schedule boasts diversity and features varying levels of difficulty, including introductory classes designed to acquaint fledgling flexers with the basic poses, proper alignment, and breathing techniques. Mixed-level classes hone strength and endurance with Vinyasa-inspired flowing poses, whereas restorative practices utilize supportive props to nurture the body during hip openers and back bends.
The salon's decor is total vintage with leather furniture, zebra-print accent pillows, and vinyl records hanging on the wall. But just because the decor is retro, doesn't meant the styling is. A hair guru can craft a classic wave, or go mod with a pixie cut and vibrant color. Guests may also undergo refreshing facials, mani-pedis, Novalash eyelash extensions, makeup application, or airbrush tanning services.
Headed up by two board-certified physicians and staffed by a team of medical professionals, Physical Medicine Clinic has a few immediate advantages over most other chiropractic clinics. For one, its treatments extend far beyond chiropractic care, encompassing everything from medical-grade beauty services to meditative yoga classes. Having recently added an aesthetician to the staff, the office now offers exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels alongside physical therapy for crooked spines and malfunctioning antennae. Though these services may seem remarkably different, they are all geared toward helping clients achieve optimal health?both inside and out.
The team of massage therapists behind Bodies Kneaded have more than two decades of experience among them. They draw on that expertise to treat issues ranging from sports injuries to pains associated with pregnancy. In addition to custom-tailored massages, they relax visitors with skin-smoothing salt scrubs and mud wraps. Appointments are available at two locations—one in Glen Carbon, one in Granite City. At the Glen Carbon location, aestheticians also perform diamond microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and other skincare services.
Sunflower Massage Studio isn't just a relaxing refuge from the everyday?as a local business, it's also a refuge from the revolving-door approach of chain massage studios. This means that in addition to a tension-relieving massage, customers get a bounty of other thoughtful amenities, such as a 30-minute buffer zone before and after the massage to give client and therapist time to wind down and discuss the session. It also means the therapists won't pressure their clients to choose a massage modality, as every session is customized to their individual needs. Of course, add-ons such as hot stones and aromatherapy are available, as well as specialty styles such as prenatal, myofascial-release, and sports massage, which helps athletes' muscles recover from sporting events and emotions recover from tense exchanges with referees.
