Tres Jolie Day Spa welcomes guests with soothing ambiance and services heightened by products by Shira. Techs combat blemishes and wrinkles with facials, microdermabrasion, and glycolic peels that make epidermises glow like embarrassed fireflies. Once faces have been thoroughly purified, specialists perform makeup lessons and applications, as well as waxing and threading services. Tres Jolie's techs also swaddle clients with body wraps and tenderize tissues with an array of massage modalities, including hot stone, reflexology, lymphatic drainage, and shiatsu.
When they’re not helping adults retain their youthful glow, staff members let little ones feel grown up with kids' spa parties. These scaled-down, relaxing get-togethers are enchanted by princess and fairy themes, pink limos, and four-tier chocolate fountains that refuse to trade pennies for wishes.
Affiliated with the American Naturopathic Medical Association and the American Alternative Medical Association, Wojciech Konior, ND, TNC, launched Natural Medicine Center to help those interested in pharmaceutical-free healing. Believing that all illness results from imbalances within the body, Dr. Konior performs alternative diagnostics, such as hair-tissue-mineral analysis and timing how long it takes patients to build a ship in a bottle, to identify the source of maladies. Recommended care may integrate a range of treatment approaches, ranging from dietary changes and supplements to exercise and detoxification therapy. Dr. Konior can also help arrange care with a network of other practitioners, such as massage therapists, chiropractors, and acupuncturists. To further support clients' lifestyles, Natural Medicine Center houses a store filled with health products, including herbs, vitamins, and minerals, as well as natural and organic items for the home, hygiene, and homes that refuse to bathe.
Three is the magic number at BodyWork Boutique, where a trio of therapists relieves stress and tension with three massage modalities. The smooth, rhythmic strokes of their Swedish massages stimulate blood and lymph flow to reduce muscle soreness and improve overall health. Deep-tissue treatments focus on lower layers of muscles, targeting deep-seated adhesions with firm pressures. The therapists’ third specialty, hot-stone massage, is something of a compromise between the other two. The massage’s heated stones melt away aches as they radiate warmth, reminding the body of comforts it formerly knew in its pre-hatched state.
The therapists at Studio 88 begin their battle against stress before clients even get to the treatment room. A chandelier-lit reception area surrounded by cheery pink walls puts tension on the defensive as soon as clients walk in the door. Down the hallway, the fight continues, with massages powered by Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone techniques that dissolve knots and muscular tightness. Elsewhere, skincare specialists brighten visages with facials, and makeup experts highlight clients' winning features with professionally applied products. The staff’s permanent-makeup treatments also help clients free up time during their morning routines for sleeping in or firing spitballs at the paperboy.
The team of professional therapists at Balance Face + Body Wellness know their way around both high-end skincare products and med-spa technology. Customized facials and chemical peels incorporate physician-grade ingredients such as cleansing agents, scrubs, and enzymes to smooth away wrinkles and blemishes. Alternatively, therapists can lift tension from muscles with integrated or hot-bamboo massages, or turn to more advanced devices to contour specific areas of the body and free them from cellulite.
While its main focus is skincare, the studio also works to cultivate a European spa atmosphere. From exposed stone in the lobby, to private massage rooms lit by a mix of cool blue and warm red accent lights, to a wormhole that opens right beneath the Eiffel Tower, every design element is orchestrated to promote calm and mental well-being.
Despite its name, Sooth Away Your Aches isn’t content with simply relaxing tension- and stress-laden muscles. Instead, the therapists treat the underlying causes behind those aches by utilizing specialized modalities that aim to boost circulation, improve postures, or even relieve arthritic inflammation. Add-ons can complement these therapeutic effects while still managing to pamper clients, incorporating products such as hot stones or therapy creams, which feature ingredients such as eucalyptus and peppermint extracts, cocoa butter, and aloe vera. Beyond massage, Sooth Away Your Aches also hosts personal-training sessions that teach clients how to develop a customized workout regimen and hurl a medicine ball into Earth’s orbit.
