One look around Seidou Salon Spa tells clients what level of luxury they can expect to find there. From the mounted flat-screen TV that hangs in front of the black leather styling chairs to the porcelain footbaths that squat at the foot of two padded pedicure thrones, the setting suggests a dedication to pampering rarely seen outside of an Olympic cooing match. The private treatment rooms where massages take place even feature a corner tub, in which clients can indulge in hydrotherapy treatments that either relieve soreness with camphor or soften skin with mango, lime, and aloe.
The center's treatments range in nature from clinical to holistic, sometimes incorporating solutions of lactic or salicylic acid?chemical peels?and sometimes favoring Eastern healing methods?acupuncture and chakra-balancing massages. As an Aveda salon, Seidou Salon Spa has access to popular hair-color and conditioning products, and it upholds this standard by also carrying nail polish from OPI, skin creams from PCA Skin, and appointment books made of recycled newspaper clippings of the first moon landing.

The therapists at Bhakti Wellness Center have no shortage of healing tools. Sometimes they treat chronic pain and injuries with conventional methods, such as deep-tissue and medical massage. Other times, they turn to such alternative practices as reiki therapy, a "laying on hands" method that they believe promotes bodily healing by manipulating the body's natural energies. The center's therapists are so convinced of the connection between physical health and mental well-being that they even hold classes in meditation and emotional intelligence, wherein students learn to the manage the stress that comes from not understanding your chakra or from having library books that are 35 years overdue.
Back pain, headaches, muscle pain, stiff joints, and sports injuries: the list of ailments that Wellspring Health Center?s doctors and therapists can remedy is as extensive as their methodology.
