Decorated with tranquil candles reaching from the walls and chocolate-brown or ivory curtains, Return to Clarity's interior sets the tone for a serene experience. Licensed massage therapists enhance relaxation through massage and reflexology work. Similarly infrared-sauna wraps and ionic foot-detox treatments send toxins from the body. Mobile services bring relaxation to the home, kitty condo, or office inside the Randallstown, Owings Mills, Gwynn Oak, Catonsville, Windsor Mill, Woodlawn, and Baltimore areas.
Seoul Spa introduces visitors to the healing traditions of the Korean jjimjilbang, or sauna, including stone-clad pools of cleansing warm water and soothing, herbal remedies.
The sauna detoxifies and cleanses bodies with nature-based healing services for women, or with specially constructed rooms for all visitors, such as the himalayan salt room––made with calcium-packed pink salt rock––the oxygen-rich wood-charcoal room, or the refreshing ice room. Dips in herb-infused waters make guests feel like pampered royalty, while video game sessions on PCs allow visitors to step away from the spa, unless they play a spa war game.
After sweating in the sauna or building up muscle in the fitness center, visitors can replenish themselves at the restaurant. Low tables and cushy pillows invite diners to sit cross-legged on the floor, a perfect posture for enjoying cool glasses of bubble tea and fruit smoothies or bowls of udon and ramen.

The professional aestheticians and massage therapists at The Face Place tussle with tense spots and cleanse world-weary complexions in a soothing, Eastern-themed spa. A 15-minute aromatherapy eucalyptus steam bath permeates physiques to loosen clenching muscles and waist-clinging koala bears. Bodies can then spurn bothersome aches with one of four massage modalities, including the smooth, classic strokes of a Swedish massage or the more pressurized, pain-pummeling kneads of a deep-tissue treatment. During maternal massage, practiced knuckles gently search for baby-related back pain, and the integrative reflexology massage targets nodes in the ears, hands, and feet that correspond to distinct corporal zones or prompt noses to glow red and shout "operation!"
Getting an awful haircut can be an oddly traumatizing experience. When a teenaged Elizabeth Ford got an awful haircut, she used it as inspiration to work toward opening her own salon one day, where she would ensure her clients would leave happy with how they look. She eventually opened As You Like It Salon and Spa, where after 35 years she's still motivated by the idea that everyone should have a style that makes them feel beautiful. To that end, her and a team of stylists perform everything from haircuts and coloring treatments to keratin and bioionic hair-straightening services.
Over the years Elizabeth also added a spa, and now counts a certified aesthetician and massage therapist among her ranks. Resident aesthetician Gina used to be a television makeup artist, and the studio offers makeup applications as well as lash extensions and glycolic facials. Massage services include relaxation and prenatal sessions, as well as essential oil-based raindrop therapy, which is generally preferred to lightning therapy.
Under the supervision of a board-certified physician, the professional staff at Physician’s Weight Loss Centers helps clients work toward overall wellness while shedding pounds with their six specialized weight-loss programs. After a consultation with a certified staff member, each client is assigned to the program best suited to his or her goals, current health, and willingness to put up with a stack of pancake’s “I miss you!” text messages. Programs can also be augmented with regimens of supplements and vitamins, including the fat-targeting agents of vitamin B12 injections. Not merely satisfied with supplying menu plans, the staff offers behavior-guidance plans, counselors, and medical consultations to ensure clients fully embrace new, healthful behaviors.
