The services at IGM Day Spa sound almost good enough to eat. The chocolate minty mud mani-pedi, for example, soothes extremities with mud wrap and hot towels, and is a tidier alternative to soaking your feet in mint chocolate-chip ice cream. Aestheticians also cleanse complexions with luxurious champagne or caviar facials. And, if patrons prefer to indulge in body treatments, they have plenty of appetizing options. Various aromatic amalgamations?including a ginger-spice sea-salt polish?exfoliate physiques, leaving skin smooth and silky. The spa even offers a Chicken Noodle Soup for the Soul massage, which blends Swedish strokes with reflexology techniques and deep-tissue pressure to relieve tension. Clients who prefer services that aren't inspired by food have plenty to choose from as well, including stylish haircuts, detoxifying sauna sessions, and glycolic peels.

Myra, owner of Natural Touch Therapies, first helps clients to feel great, and then works to make them look as good as they feel. "Beauty is an expression of the spirit," she says. To that end, she and her staff combine Eastern and Western massage and skincare techniques into one suite of services. They relax tissues with 12 massage modalities?including shiatsu, hot-stone, and sports massage?and sooth the skin with services such as the European facial, acne treatments, and enzyme peels. Like Mr. Potato Head, each of their rejuvenating services can be customized to fit their clients' specific desires, and they also incorporate soothing hot towels into each service. For a further dose of relaxation, they can also add aromatherapy upon request.
Over the years she spent treating athletes and working alongside chiropractors, Patricia Delgado learned to appreciate the physically and mentally rejuvenating effects of massage therapy. She now shares her expertise with a wider range of clients, helping them live healthier lives free of chronic pain and discomfort. Instead of relying on invasive medical procedures and prescription medications, Patricia utilizes the power of human touch to both locate and relieve sources of withheld tension or deeply rooted injury. She accomplishes this by employing a range of specialized massage modalities, including everything from relaxing Swedish strokes and focused deep-tissue pressure to myofascial release and craniosacral therapy. In addition to increasing circulation and improving joint flexibility, these treatments can help heal soft tissue and leave muscles feeling more relaxed than the jelly beans that the President ceremonially pardons each Easter.
Although most centuries-old healing practices have lost their popularity, acupuncture has withstood the test of time. The traditional Chinese art of inserting ultra-fine needles under the skin to ease energy flow throughout the body remains a legitimate method for combating all sorts of ailments, from arthritis to menopause. At her health and wellness central, licensed acupuncturist Ingrid Gicherman tailors each of her sessions to individual consultations on her clients’ medical histories. Gicherman catalyzes wellness with strategies beyond standard acupuncture, however; her acupressure-based Shiatsu massages foster full-body wellbeing, and her Bach flower remedies help her patients manage their stress and emotions without smashing every glass of water they drink on the ground and shouting “L’Chaim!”
The barbers at Emporio Man have spent years perfecting their haircutting techniques. Frankie Pe has been a licensed master barber in Florida since 1964, and his younger counterparts, Joan Cruz and Chad Blaize, both started honing their skills at age 15?Cruz in the Dominican Republic, and Blaize in Brooklyn's barbershops.
Thanks to their decades of practice, the three-man team is quite versatile. They're just as adept with precision haircuts and hot-towel shaves, and just as skilled straight-edge razors and machine ones. However, their barbershop's luxuries encompass more than top-notch products. During appointments, clients can watch the latest games on flat-screen TVs, smoke the shop's cigars, or engage in friendly competition over whose hair clippings fall the fastest.
Spa comforts, clinical care, and attention to fitness intersect inside of KMC Rehabilitation & Aesthetic Center. Aestheticians and massage therapists infuse their work with medical training as they revitalize the skin through facials, masks, and nonsurgical weight-loss therapies. Modalities such as deep-tissue, reiki, and tui-na massages can be focused on issues pertaining to those rehabbing from injury or suffering from stress and tension. In addition to a fitness room stocked with medicine balls and exercise bikes, the rehabilitation center guides its clients toward relief and recovery through electro stimulation, ultrasound, and therapeutic massage.
