Therapy in Presence’s certified practitioners custom fit massages for clients depending on individual needs. To ensure an appropriately tailored massage, practitioners ask massage receivers detailed questions about their physical and mental well-being, assign client-specific medical-grade essential oils, and measure muscles with yardsticks during a 30-minute consultation session ($25). During a one-hour massage ($85), skin-rubbing gurus apply techniques from nine massage modalities, focusing on one or more at a time if requested.
Jardin Medical Spa springs several spa services on Philadelphia's faces, but only two have been set aside for Groupon users. The chemical peel efficiently and effectively treats skin that's been damaged by the harsh winter sun, unevenly pigmented, unfairly wrinkled, or unwisely replaced with a hologram. The spa's sugarcane-based glycolic peel improves texture and tone, adding a healthier look to faces while helping reduce future aging agitators such as age spots or faded pigmentation. At 15 minutes, the chemical peel is also one of the fastest cosmetic procedures available, topped only by a goblet of vitriol tossed in the face by a spiteful Victorian mistress.
After following in the family footsteps—their family boasts 12 doctors of chiropractic—and practicing chiropractic together for years, twins Dr. Dane Donohue and Dr. Denise Chranowski expanded into massage, meditation, and nutrition counseling. Their expertise in the health industry led to the creation of the 8 Weeks to Wellness program, which has spread to more than 30 offices around the country and caught the attention of CBS’s Talk Philly. The wellness program begins with the client's vow to stop butter-only diets before a physical evaluation is administered with computerized muscle tests. Then, a customized nutrition program is paired with meditation, chiropractic adjustments, and massage to fight weight gain, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.
Patients not enrolled in 8 Weeks to Wellness can still visit Wellness Solution Centers for a chiropractic adjustment or a massage to tend to chronic pain that has lingered since dressing up as a punching bag for Halloween. They can also join personal-training and exercise programs to tone their muscles, or yoga and Pilates classes to build core strength and enhance flexibility.
Bella Medspa sometimes offers a half-off special for six session packages, toward which this Groupon cannot be used. This deal is for three sessions, which currently cost up to $750 per session (depending on the area), and it still offers the best value.
Inner Spa's licensed nurses and certified hydrotherapists detoxify bodies and assuage symptoms such as chronic fatigue via colon hydrotherapy. Each one-hour session begins with a personal health consultation to identify treatment goals and expectations. The FDA-approved hydrotherapy device and one-time-use equipment then send a gentle flow of filtered water through the colon, dislodging accumulated toxins and old receipts as customers relax to soothing music; private bathrooms in each treatment room ensure modesty. The therapy may help to bolster the immune system, stimulate healthy muscle contraction in the colon, and promote proper usage of the semi-colon.
The health experts at Five Star Wellness aim to bring the mind, body, and spirit back into balance through a variety of holistic-minded treatments ranging from organic facials to ear candling. Colon hydrotherapy is an office specialty, and all therapists hold certification through the International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy (I-Act). Utilizing FDA-approved equipment, the process sends filtered, temperature-controlled water through the large intestine, where it breaks down and flushes away any accumulation of waste or swallowed pride to improve immune- and digestive-system function. An alternate method of detoxification, ionic detox footbaths use positively charged ions to draw negatively charged toxins out through the feet, helping clear the system of heavy metals, cellular debris, and other substances often blamed for throwing the body out of balance.
