A skilled staff of massage therapists and acupuncturists boosts clients' bodily morale with a slew of holistic services at The Healing Path. The repertoire of massage, acupuncture, nutritional-coaching, and counseling services work together to improve clients' total well-being. Before massage sessions, therapists interview clients to better understand their health before deciding on which of the massage modalities at their disposal will best ease physical pain and unwind mental stress. The long, flowing strokes of traditional Swedish massage form a blissful foundation for therapeutic sessions, which aim to release knotted soft tissue, dispel stress, and improve circulation. Hands carefully knead away deep aches during prenatal massage to help make mother, unborn child, and the unborn child's weekend houseguests comfortable during pregnancy.
Before acupuncture sessions, acupuncturists make a comprehensive evaluation of clients' concerns before inserting fine needles into specific points along the body to help boost the immune system and increase circulatory flow. The Healing Path also facilitates mental healing with psychotherapy sessions to help develop coping skills, work through issues, or provide a safe space to unspool stress.
Uno The Salon's lineup of creative stylists craft custom cuts in a sleek, modern salon setting.

Led by the pedigreed Dr. Lawrence Rosenberg and Dr. Michele Shermak, the Plastic Surgery Center's three high-tech facilities focus not just on beautifying clients but also on educating them about the surgical process. Relax under their capable care with a round of frown-line fighting Dysport, which aims to imbue new vitality into the manifold folds of aging countenances. A sequence of five quick injections can reduce the wrinkles and fine lines caused by aging, stress, and artisanal cheese-tasting. While effects are not permanent, the procedure may stop the muscles that cause furrows from contracting, providing temporary forehead toning.
Laser hair removal gets rid of pesky strands by targeting them at the follicle with two rhythmic handclaps and an intense burst of light. The beam heats the follicle to a controlled, sauna-like temperature, soothing the hair before it experiences a life review and a serene, fade-to-white farewell. Immediately following treatments, some clients may experience redness, but they will be professionally advised with a post-treatment skin-care plan to relieve whatever minor irritation may occur. Women can use today's Groupon to treat their underarms ($540/three sessions), bikini line ($607.50/three sessions), upper lip ($337.50/three sessions), or chin ($472.50/three sessions), and men can use it for their shoulders ($275 per session) or the nape or the front of their neck ($175 per session). As few as three to four sessions (spaced two to three months apart) are typically required to see permanent results, and customers can conveniently combine two Groupons for a total of six sessions.
Many spas claim to focus on total-body wellness, but few go so far as to build their own full-size fitness studio. Few can argue, then, when Spa Seven touts its approach as one that caters to “skin, body, and mind”—not when the spa backs up these words with a comprehensive menu of skin and beauty services and group and private fitness classes held in an expansive, well-equipped studio.
A simple philosophy guides Spa Seven’s multifaceted approach to wellness: no two bodies are the same. The spa’s staff—a highly qualified mélange of aestheticians, massage therapists, and fitness trainers—takes these words to heart when devising custom treatments and routines. Each of the spa’s five facial peels caters to a specific skin type, and a variety of massage techniques work to relieve stress from waiting for hours in traffic or hurling stalled station wagons out of one’s path.
Similarly, the fitness studio’s group classes help guests achieve mind-body symmetry in the way that feels most right for them. On one hand, P90X boot camps sculpt muscles with a program of intense weight-training and nutritional advice; on the other, yoga classes relax the senses with energy-balancing poses and contemplative games of Twister.
