Because it's virtually impossible to style hair underwater, Style Bar has done the next best thing by setting up shop a short comb toss from the Atlantic Ocean. As the salty echoes of waves waft through the spa windows, skilled stylists transform hair with voluminous layers and bold color highlights. Guests may also request a relaxing facial or mani-pedi, or retreat to a private room for soothing hot-stone therapy from the salon's licensed massage therapist.
The human body is a machine: an intricate system of individual parts that all rely on coordinated communications from the nervous system. When that system of communication breaks or slows down, the machine may not necessarily shut down, but it will operate at less than peak efficiency. Dr. Roger Verno has dedicated more than 20 years of his life to restoring those lines of communication, using chiropractic care to help improve neurological function and jump-start the body's natural healing processes.
At their core, Dr. Verno's chiropractic adjustments aim to relieve chronic pains while addressing the underlying conditions that caused those problems in the first place. Since these sorts of precision tweaks are especially valuable for athletes, Dr. Verno often lends his therapeutic talents to everyone from football and basketball teammates to triathlon competitors and shot put quality-control testers.
When a relatively simple hands-on adjustment might not be enough to fully address a patient's needs, Dr. Verno and his team aren't afraid to utilize technological assistance. X-ray imaging gives the staff a clearer look at potential problem spots, and computerized spinal-decompression systems help them pinpoint and treat the pinched nerves that can cause lower back pain and sciatica. Cold laser therapy and ultrasound treatments also help the therapists address specialized problems within the body's intricate framework of muscles, nerves, and organs.
Exhale Spa seeks to transform its clientele inside and out. The founding team of fitness professionals and aestheticians sought to create an environment where they could empower visitors with pampering spa treatments, invigorating fitness classes, and lifestyle education, helping clients attain a sense of control and holistic balance. Now with 19 locations across 11 cities, Exhale Spa and its signature services have earned mentions in numerous national publications, including People magazine, the New York Times, and O, The Oprah Magazine.
Exhale's signature Core Fusion classes incorporate dance-inspired stretches, yoga poses, and Pilates exercises into total-body workouts that build long, lean limbs and sturdy abdominal muscles over time. For an even more varied workout, the instructors introduce boot-camp techniques, cardio exercises, or multiplication tables to select sessions. Yoga classes present a similar amount of breadth and variety, drawing inspiration from a number of introspective and physically oriented styles. To help hasten physical transformations, nutrition and wellness coaches teach attendees about the impacts of diet. These sessions build an awareness of healthy eating habits through custom meal plans and by teaching clients how to identify the edible parts of a fruit basket.
Many of the center's traditional spa services seek to inspire confidence. Facials pamper and refine skin using everything from green tea and fruit extracts to microcurrent technology, and mani-pedis revitalize digits before glazing nails with a vibrant new coat of color. Bodywork treatments look beyond physical relaxation and focus on holistic concerns. Massage therapists can use Eastern or Western modalities to soothe overstressed musculature, and acupuncture treatments and reiki sessions jump-start natural healing processes by encouraging the free flow of inner energies.
