Using a wide range of state-of-the-art pulse lasers, the clinic's talented technicians effectively wipe out unwanted hair from the body's jungly regions. Via particular wavelengths and repeated zappings, lasers are able to infiltrate the skin and eliminate fuzz, decreasing the reappearance of hair as follicles shed over a period of weeks and roots get reabsorbed into the body. Unlike argyle socks and babies in a nursery, customers aren't allowed to mix and match treatment areas; all three procedures must be applied to the same skin section.

Salt seasons food and exfoliates skin, but it can help people breathe easier, too. Anyone suffering from symptoms of COPD, sinusitis, and other respiratory ailments may find relief at Healthy Breathing Center, where salt rooms help improve breathing function. Inside, they enter a private chamber and recline in a comfortable chair as air infused with miniscule salt particles is pumped in. While participants breathe deeply, the salt penetrates the lungs, soothing inflammation and dislodging built-up congestion. During a 45-minute session, it's even normal for patients to relax to the point of even falling asleep.
At Peace of Mind Reflexology, a licensed reflexologist helps clients overcome chronic pain, defeat insomnia, and eliminate toxins—all without the use of drugs or intrusive treatments. Rather than rubbing soft tissue like one would do when giving a back massage or developing a new brand of Kleenex, reflexology treatments apply targeted pressure to nerves on the feet. This stimulates the release of endorphins at specific locations throughout the body. After a session with a trained reflexologist, patients may feel a reduction in pain and stress and a boost in circulation, all activated through the body's natural energy and internal chemical reactions.
At Whole Body Nutrition, registered holistic nutritionist Kirsten Janz knows that even the most die-hard health fanatic sometimes gets tired of raw broccoli and asparagus. That's why she develops personalized diets and meal plans based on clients'—and their families'—personal tastes as well as their current health conditions. She allots for such vices as red wine and chocolate by working them into creative recipes so they won't compromise the benefits of more nutritious servings or feel insecure after sitting on the shelf for too long.
In his study of the human body and its pressure points, Rommel Vila logged 2,200 hours of training to earn the title of registered shiatsupractor. During each shiatsu session, he applies precise pressure with his fingers and palms to specific sites on the body, releasing tension and restoring balance to the body and its musculature. Clients keep their clothes on as Rommel works, gauging tension and sensitivity in specific points and identifying larger stress patterns that have developed over time.
