A peaceful oasis in your busy day, Qitopia offers massages, facials, and reflexology in beautifully appointed private rooms. The trained practitioners at Qitopia—formerly known as New You Massage in Deptford Mall—use the quiet space to soothe faces, backs, and feet with authentic Chinese modalities such as shiatsu and tuina. They free the body's energy, known as qi, from blockages by performing acupressure with hot stones and plugging in any bodily power cords. Tension lifts from clients' statures as the experts gently stretch limbs and release tight joints, using aromatherapy oils and lotions to aid relaxation and detoxification. Chinese massages also unleash a host of benefits from enhanced immunity and energy to reduced hypertension.
At A Good Life Massage Therapy, certified massage therapist Danielle DeLeonardo is committed to easing clients' stress and tension. She schedules morning, afternoon, and evening appointments 7 days a week, loosening muscles with eight different types of massages and body-balancing reflexology sessions. During relaxing aromatherapy massages, DeLeonardo employs fragrant Young Living essential oils that have been harvested from shrubs, flowers, and trees. She addresses the discomforts of mothers-to-be with prenatal massages, and performs corporate massages that can increase employees' productivity and decrease offices' paper-airplane traffic.
The staff at Sun Tao Studio embrace holistic healing methods to enhance their clients' overall health. Focusing on physiques, the certified yoga instructors lead classes for all levels, including one-on-one sessions that help introduce beginners to basic postures. They also enhance multilevel hot-yoga classes by cranking the thermostat up to 90 degrees, which can help spur detoxification and boost flexibility. Before sessions, students may roam across the hardwood floors and peruse the selection of yoga mats, or gaze out the floor-to-ceiling windows to watch nearby oaks diligently practice tree pose. In addition to yoga, the staff also offers natural healing services including acupuncture sessions and a specialized posture class.
Vibrant red, yellow, and blue walls envelop a plethora of weightlifting and cardio machines in Body & Soul Core Fitness’s main room. While lifting barbells or twirling legs atop treadmills, patrons can watch flat-screen TVs or peek through the windows into the cardio-kickboxing room lined with red heavy bags swinging under the force of swift kicks and punches. The gym’s classes also include Zumba, DanceSports, spinning, and circuit training. Those interested in more individualized attention can take part in one-on-one personal-training sessions with the gym’s experienced instructors.
Dr. Scott Erichsen believes that wellness is the result of a very specific cocktail—one part chiropractic care, one part acupuncture, and one part massage. He and his staff administer these treatments at the Erichsen Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center, where the approach centers around encouraging and trusting the body's natural healing mechanisms. Dr. Erichsen handles the chiropractic element by consulting with clients and adjusting spines to correct subluxations, or misalignments in the vertebrae. Acupuncture sessions, meanwhile, arrange hair-thin needles along the body to balance its flow of energy, thereby easing issues such as headaches, digestive problems, and stress. Massage therapist Joan Lee is the final ingredient. Her sessions target tense muscles and send guests into a state of physical and mental calm.
The center also offers weight-loss services outside of its signature treatment-trio. The Ideal Protein program helps participants to burn fat as they adopt a healthier lifestyle, teaching them what foods to avoid and how to effectively pole vault over the dessert section of the grocery store.
