There are no quick check ins at Well Balanced Chiropractic. That's because the chiropractors, trainers, and yogis take a more holistic approach to wellness. Geared to promoting overall health and wellness, the experts at Well Balanced Chiropractic believe that getting shape is more than just about exercise and diet; they believe it's a lifestyle. Through this unique all-aspects approach, clients can speed up summer weight loss, improve flexibility and posture, and learn to make their bodies work just as hard on their days off. They delve deep into patients' pains, strains, and feelings to solve their underlying causes, rather than just the noticeable effects.
For this reason, every new client goes through a wellness consultation that takes two days. The first day is dedicated to a full health exam. The following day, Doctor of Chiropractic Ankur Prakash uses his formidable knowledge to assess clients and provide recommendations for overall health. He performs a range of wellness services, which may include chiropractic adjustments, which realign out-of-whack vertebrae, or fitness training, which helps rebuild muscles and perfect posture. The center also provides yoga, massage, and meditation services, which help clients heal inside and out without repeating the mantra "bandages, bandages, bandages."
The Thai massage and facial treatments at Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa have received glowing praise from New York magazine and the New York Times, respectively, with the latter publication calling one of the salon's aestheticians “one of Hollywood’s best-kept secrets.” A-list celebrities, including Penélope Cruz and Christy Turlington, visit to receive exfoliating treatments and in-depth facials with high-end products from Shiseido, qiora, and La Mer.
Founder Paul Labrecque treats his male and female clientele as friends and personally trains his staff in customer service and hand-to-hand combat against split ends. In addition to soothing skin during facials and microdermabrasion treatments, staffers massage muscles in eight different modalities. Their Eastern-inspired healing treatments, such as reiki and rolfing, honor the connection between the mind and body, and the salon and spa’s full list of services puts finishing touches on exteriors with haircare, makeup, and waxing, among other treatments. Each location hosts a separate, private men's salon that's part barbershop, part gentleman's club, and part knitting circle.
To become the perfect spa, one has to think like Perfect Spa. Or at least like its experienced staff, who have caught the attention of CBS News with their vast repertoire of massage, skincare, and alternative-wellness services. The staff tackle an expansive range of treatments, which include ear candling, during which an aesthetician places a waxed cloth in ears and safely lights the end. The flame's negative pressure works to remove years of buildup from ears, leaving them healthier and cleaner.
Organic Ilike, Yonka, and science-based G.M. Collins skincare products are used in the spa's staggering 10 different kinds of facials. The low-fat facial is designed to slim down faces using lymphatic drainage techniques, while the 24-karat gold facial brightens complexions using real gold sheets raided from Cleopatra’s personal stash. In the spa's a hotel-style lounge area, nail technicians beautify digits using CND, OPI, and Essie polishes as well as botanically infused products such as an avocado cuticle conditioner and green-tea mask.
Well-being gets a well-rounded boost from Forever Young Sport Spa's more than 25 Pilates and yoga instructors, licensed massage therapists, aestheticians, and personal trainers, all of whom work together to calm bodies and minds with in-home and studio spa services. Skilled hands hush whining necks and shoulders with eight modalities of massage, including aromatherapy with eucalyptus, peppermint, and rosemary oils and a shiatsu technique that stimulates the body's meridians with pressure and acupuncture. Custom facials punch away at pore-clogging dirt and debris, and sauna wraps help remove toxins and boost metabolism.
Taught by nationally certified instructors, Pilates and yoga group classes include beginner and intermediate reformer, cardio boot camp reformer, advanced reformer, and studio mat classes. The spa's spacious studio complements the flowing movements with simple designs in pale, earthy tones. Additional personal-training sessions eliminate the need to paint muscles on otherwise nice T-shirts.
Although yoga is known to incite a wide range of emotional states in its practitioners, traditional classes don't typically encourage students to express these thoughts. However, registered yoga instructor Akiva Daube has set out to provide an emotional outlet for his students during their mind-body practice, drawing from his education in psychoanalysis. He strives to help them overcome any physical, emotional, and spiritual issues with a combination of yoga's healing physical postures and talk therapy. While he guides students in strengthening their muscles and increasing their flexibility, they are encouraged to express feelings as emotions come, which may help reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. The classes are led in small groups at the studio or in one-on-one sessions at a location of the client's choice, such as in the comfort of their own home or at a calming lullaby factory.
