At Blissful Wellness Medical Weight Loss Centers, Dr. Elyssa Blissenbach and her team of licensed medical professionals and counselors devote their medical expertise to combating obesity. They take a three-pronged approach to slimming clients: customized programs, top-shelf supplements, and constant support. Like snowflakes’ DNA strands, no two patients are alike—and so staff members carefully calibrate diet and supplement plans to suit each client's metabolism, condition, and body type. The program also provides a support system for clients, offering everything from individual therapy to group outings to help ensure long-term weight loss.
The bright treatment rooms within Skin Deep Studio & Day Spa evoke sun-drenched meadows of the Italian countryside, tricking clients into believing they've escaped to Tuscany for a European vacation or an anniversary screening of European Vacation. This warm, welcoming environment helps visitors feel at home as they receive skincare, massage, and nail services from a team of talented aestheticians and massage therapists. The staff also performs makeup applications, waxing services, and spa treatments designed specially for men.
If a giant hourglass exploded, leaving a sand-hued floor and a temporary break in the flow of time itself, Paradise Grooming would be the result. Against a backdrop of murals featuring palm trees frozen mid-sway beneath a sun perpetually stuck in the warm golden hours, gents grab a brew and try to sink into vacation mode while shears flick through unruly curls. As spheres rocketing across a fully functional foosball table sound a sharp report, scalp massages grab the attention of nostrils by steeping skin in fragrant tea-tree oil that soothes heads stressed from living downstairs from a piano-and-anvil factory. On the way to a private room for a hot-stone massage or facial, guests pause to peruse a menu of manicures and waxing services.
From Pilates, yoga, and cycling classes to facials, body wraps, and massages, Changes in Motion’s repertoire of life-affirming services helps clients achieve health and beauty from the inside out. Students can enroll in small-group classes or one-on-one sessions with one of three licensed Pilates instructors—former dancer Effie, Power Pilates expert Emmy, or Pilates veteran Wendy. The trio rounds up Reformer machines, springboards, and a TRX suspension system to help novices and seasoned students alike strengthen and tone their cores. The studio also boasts a full class schedule packed with non-Pilates sessions, such as spinning, cross training, and yoga.
After clients work up a sweat, they can head to the spa for a 60-minute cooldown session with a licensed massage therapist, who customizes deep-tissue, Swedish, and Thai stretch techniques to individual concerns. Across the hall, licensed aestheticians use Éminence, B&G, and WoodSprite organic skincare products during facials and body wraps, hydrating skin and restoring a look of youth. Meanwhile, two noninvasive systems—the TriActive laser and electrical-stimulation machine—blend technologies to boost circulation, smooth cellulite, and tighten skin without the hassle of squeezing into a straitjacket made entirely of band-aids.
One part salon and spa, one part fitness center, and one part tattoo parlor, Alaric Health Beauty and Wellness is a one-stop shop aiming to glam up, firm up, and wind down clients' bodies. Hairstylists sweep men’s and women’s manes into trendy styles and nourish scalps with deep conditioner and hydrating scalp treatments. During one-hour Swedish massages, long, flowing strokes untie knotted muscles and help rejuvenate auras cluttered with stress and stale boxes of chi, and basic and deep pore-cleansing facials exfoliate visages to help skin regain a youthful glow. Inside the full-service fitness center, bodies work toward fitness goals among rows of weight and cardio machines, and can attempt to expedite results with help from a personal trainer or prescription weight-loss program. In between workouts or wrinkle-reducing cosmetic injections, bodies can seek out immediate and permanent aesthetic enhancements at the hands of resident tattoo artist Jimmy Riggs. With 15 years of experience and a background as a multimedia artist, he can easily translate any design to skin, whether it be a lover’s name, a portrait of a favorite musician, or small-scale replica of Jackson Pollock’s No. 5
