Pure Life Studio espouses a philosophy of toxin-free modern living enhanced by cleansing sauna treatments to maintain your body’s elegant internal chemistry. A 45-minute sauna session floods your corporeal vessel with pure oxygen, while infrared heat technology penetrates your skin up to two inches below its surface, banishing toxins and burning up to 600 calories while you wallow. Before the treatment, ensconce your form with essential oils to purify and tighten your skin to Delphinidae-proportions. You’ll also receive a botanical formula-infused take-home wrap to further firm and tone your torso territory.
Nyria Acosta isn’t content to merely heal the body with her therapeutic massages. She also wants to grant her clients a reprieve from life’s daily stressors, be they morning traffic jams or bosses who write their memos in binary code. Nyria describes her bodywork as “soul-centered”—a claim she backs up with breathing techniques designed to calm the body, mind, and soul.
It’s no surprise that Nyria pays so much attention to the spiritual side of things. The skilled massage therapist honed many of her techniques at India's Ayurveda Training Institute before sharpening her technical skills at the Cincinnati School of Medical Massage. She draws on both experiences to pamper clients with deep-tissue, hot-stone, and restorative Pada Abhyanga massages. For a massage you likely won’t find anywhere else, try one of her aptly named prayerssages. During these special sessions, she enhances her strokes with the healing power of prayer.
