At Quantum Health Spa, the experienced team doesn’t take just a single approach to obtaining wellness. Sometimes, they focus on skin care, rejuvenating skin with enzymatic body peels and assorted exfoliating facials. At other times, relaxation is their focus; massage therapists treat tense muscles to massages available in styles that include hot stone. The team also offers nutritional counseling, and an infrared sauna that can help visitors detoxify their bodies or heat up dinner leftovers.
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health-and-wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
Doctors of Chiropractic David Fischer, Debra Maibach, and Donna Nicolich have been adjusting spines for years at Fischer Health & Rehabilitation. Those spines belong to athletes, retirees, pregnant women, working folk, and even newborns. They all suffer from stressors on their nervous system, which can lead to migraines, back pain, and tingling in the limbs and phantom limbs. In addition to manual adjustments, the staff helps alleviate patients' pain with physical therapy, massage therapy, and individualized doctor-assisted weight loss.
LaVida Massage fields a staff of male and female licensed therapists to make all guests comfortable in a gender-neutral environment. The staff calls upon a wide array of modalities, ranging from hot-stone and couples massage to aromatherapy and prenatal. They also take care of skin with peels and facials. The LaVida Signature facial refreshes visages by cleansing the skin, exfoliating it with a mask, and spraying it with a recovery mist before hydrating with lotions, serums, and condensation from a unicorn's glass of iced tea.
Owner Ronnie Keller has made Bridgewater Commons Mall his second home. Early in the morning, he saunters past storefronts, stopping at the threshold of Splash Salon & Spa, flanked by two tall, obelisk-shaped lanterns that serve to welcome both patrons and fashion-forward moths. Past the reception desk, where water cascades down glass panes, Ronnie settles in for the day, overseeing a team of beautification experts as they perform a slate of pampering services. Funky aluminum mirrors reflect hairstylists' newly forged masterpieces as nail technicians soften skin with sea-salt scrubs and paraffin waxes before camouflaging fingers in a choice of polish. Eight styles of massage revive tired bodies, and facials, waxing, and cosmetic services keep visitors looking radiant and magic mirrors from making meaningless small talk. Posttreatment, clients can peruse a stash of Bumble and bumble., Paul Mitchell, and Moroccanoil products that eagerly await adoption.
Dr. Eric Waldorf and his team at Waldorf Chiropractic Center take a “whole-person” approach to wellness, performing a variety of chiropractic and complementary treatments while offering lifestyle advice to guide clients toward good health. As a police surgeon for Amtrak, a licensed chiropractor, and a certified chiropractic sports physician, Dr. Waldorf brings a wealth of knowledge to bear on chiropractic visits, which seek out the root causes of chronic pain. He also remedies ailments with spinal adjustments, physical therapy, or massage. Therapist Shara Smith blends Swedish, shiatsu, and neuromuscular massage techniques during kneading sessions tailored to each client’s condition.
