At Bodhi Acupuncture and Wellness, John Emanoil leads a team of licensed acupuncturists and asian-bodywork experts who draw on years of professional training to build holistic-wellness plans for their clients. During acupuncture sessions, practitioners insert anywhere from 4 to 20 hair-thin needles at specific points along the body to free the flow of energy and help alleviate ailments such as insomnia, chronic pain, and gastrointestinal discomfort. Those seeking additional pain management can commission one of eight types of massage and muscular therapy, which include custom one-on-one yoga sessions and myofascial release.
Le gustaría un masaje? If you answered "sí," then Verde Wellness & Massage is perfect for you. If you frantically tried to remember your high-school Spanish, drew a complete blank, and became stressed thinking about how practically everyone but you is fluent in at least two languages, well, Verde is perfect for you too. Its therapists can dissolve that stress, and if you want, help you practice your español.
The team kneads away aches and releases tension with more than a dozen massage modalities. Swedish massage boosts circulation with long, flowing strokes, table Thai massage increases flexibility with assisted stretching, and Dojo sports massage relies on a special lotion to treat sore muscles. The signature massage includes extras such as aromatherapy, hot stones, and a scalp massage that proves more satisfying than repeatedly walking under trees with low-hanging branches. Verde's therapists also inject some diversity into the center's services with their slate of reflexology and chakra-balancing therapies.
Savon Spa's Parisian theme speaks to its Old-World luxury, whereas its emphasis on organic ingredients in handmade soaps and lotions belies an utterly modern eco-consciousness. The menu is determined to reach beyond standard spa fare by featuring a host of all-natural add-on services. Botanicals are even directly incorporated into the French bamboo massage, in which a therapist applies focused pressure with bamboo sticks and organic oil to dissipate tension. The aestheticians perform services using Eminence Organic Skin Care.
Each service at Marietta's Day Spa seems to have a different purpose. The petite facial exfoliates and massages faces, whereas the Man for All Seasons facial nourishes the skin of men and the weather patterns that love them. Elsewhere, paraffin applications lock moisture into dry skin, and Swedish and deep-tissue massages work the kinks out of tired muscles.
Each member of Ether Health & Beauty Spa's three-person team has a different specialty. Xiya Lin's is the corrective herbal facial, which uses products from Elina Organics to treat acne, dryness, or aging skin. The other two staffers handle the spa's bodywork sessions. Jillian Brown takes a clinical approach to massage, meaning she's a master of techniques such as deep-tissue and sports. Michael Hughes, on the other hand, is influenced by Eastern healing techniques. He sometimes mixes in acupressure, shiatsu, and fire cupping into his treatments.
Whatever service clients schedule, they can also enjoy the spa's sauna room. Here they'll find both dry and wet saunas as well as a whirlpool, which is sort of like a regular pool, except instead of water, there's just a bunch of people whirling in circles.

Products from glo therapeutics star in personalized facials and chemical peels designed to restore youthful elasticity to cheeks and fight damage incurred by free radicals, aging, or attempts to kiss porcupines.
