Joseph D'Antona, The Balance Health & Wellness Center's managing director, heads a practice that won Long Island Press's Best Acupuncturist and Best Massage awards for 2013. He uses his advanced certifications in NAET allergy elimination to naturally ride allergies through acupuncture. Collaborating with this expert team of therapists, D'Antona offers services to reduce pain, eliminate stress, and remove toxins. Sessions in the far-infrared sauna and water-fueled colon-hydrotherapy sessions promote wellness and are just two of the center's 25 salutary treatments. Spa procedures, such as cleansing, exfoliating facials, soothing hot-stone massages, and acoustic-wave cellulite-reduction therapy beautify bodies and promote a sense of deep relaxation. D'Antona takes a holistic approach to improving the health of clients, and he and the staff make communication a priority throughout each guest's treatment experience.
Begin your retreat to Inner Balance’s soothing spa-o-sphere by breaking down back barriers with a 60-minute Swedish massage. The Swedish technique uses long, soothing strokes and moderate to light pressure to target strained muscles and untie knots of tension. While you lie on one of Inner Balance’s heated massage tables, the licensed therapist will use hand-to-hand combat to fight stress, improve circulatory conditions, and awaken the lymphatic system that's been hibernating and living off of stashed berries.
The experienced certified body bufferer at Indriya Massage pampers and restores balance to distressed torsos and achy appendages using the holistic healing powers of human hands. Today’s deal nets you a 60-minute Swedish kneading, a popular technique that uses light or medium pressure to loosen knots and alleviate stress. The smooth, gliding strokes alleviate taut muscles and promote relaxation, easing overworked limbs and melting tension into a conveniently positioned bucket. An effective treatment for stress reduction and the improvement of blood circulation, Swedish massage also relieves anxiety, depression, and trauma resulting from having a quarter painfully extracted from your ear by a street magician.
Sam Laurenz Salon's menu of head-to-toe beauty services leaves just enough room for treatments dedicated to overall wellness and mental nurturing. Stylists lead the charge to reinvigorate images, crafting precision cuts or re-texturizing hair with billowy wave perms or smooth-as-silk straightening treatments. Away from the shears and shampoos, clients gather in private rooms to meet one-on-one with personal counselors or gather in group meetings to participate in the salon's Weigh of Life program––a weight-loss approach that encourages members to forget yo-yo diets in favor of portion control and the breaking of bad habits. Bad habits can also be banished with help from the salon's in-house hypnotist, who aims to help clients stop smoking, overcome anxiety, or overcome a crippling fear of hypnotists.
More than 30 years after its inception, Cactus Salon & Spa and its team of continually educated stylists have not lost their edge?they earned the Long Island Press's designation as Best Hair Salon and Best Day Spa in 2011 and 2012.
