Vastu is, simply put, a place to heal and reconnect the body, mind, and spirit. At this soothing wellness center in Warwick, clients can take uplifting classes and workshops, have relaxing bodywork sessions, or learn how to be well by harnessing the healing power of good nutrition, supplements, and community. In the Vastu studio, students can meditate and move at the same time during Kai Chi Do classes, sculpt muscles in Vinyasa Yoga Strength sessions, or learn to Let Go & Flow in a laid-back session devoted to linking breath with challenging asanas. Onsite massage, from Thai Yoga to aromatherapy and prenatal modalities, helps guests relax. And they can choose to have acupuncture done or even send kids off to a yoga class of their own, such as quantum mechanics for toddlers.

Raindrop therapy sounds like it can only be administered by a storm or Julie Andrews, but at The Skin Care Studio, it is administered by licensed aesthetician Debra McClennan-Wagner. During the treatment, she cultivates balance within the body, incorporating an array of pure essential oils. Also certified in reflexology, McClennan-Wagner's expertise doesn’t end there—she also specializes in facials. Her clinic’s skincare treatments range from the exfoliation, steam, and scalp massage of a traditional European facial to higher-tech oxygen facials and photofacials, which combat signs of aging with therapeutic light. To foster long-term skin health, McClennan-Wagner complements her facials with educational tips on home skincare.

Catering to clients’ cosmetic concerns is only half of the goal at Paradiso Day Spa. The other half is providing a complete and total escape from the stress-inducing demands of everyday life. To this end, the studio strives to create a cozy, inviting atmosphere that encourages visitors to lounge for a bit and prolong their indulgent spa experience. This is readily apparent in the spa’s relaxation room, which resembles the quaint sitting room of a stately bed and breakfast, complete with plush armchairs, a low-slung divan, and complimentary beverages and snacks.
Select clients can indulge with a refreshing aromatherapy steam shower before receiving their treatment from one of the center’s aestheticians or therapists. Staffers then get busy performing facials, which can improve skin tone and restore a youthful glow to cheekbones by using everything from antibacterial LED lights to skin-firming ultrasound technology. The massage therapists similarly address a range of concerns by employing Swedish or deep-tissue modalities as well as energy-balancing reflexology techniques.
Whether your hair is straight and limp or curly and frizzy, the stylists at The Blowout Lounge will help you achieve the look you want. A trio of working moms, each with a different hair type and a limited schedule, founded the styling studio with the goal of helping women feel their best even at their busiest. During basic styling sessions, the lounge’s pros wash, condition, and style locks with Moroccanoil products. Other services range from keratin straightening treatments that control frizz and add shine to up-dos worthy of glamorous occasions or zero gravity chambers. Even lashes can leave with a new 'do after stylists adorn them with mink extensions.
