The technicians of Ever Clean Colonics utilize FDA-compliant colon-hydrotherapy devices with single-use tubing to flush away impacted waste. Colon-hydrotherapy sessions begin with a full explanation of the technique and procedures in order to ensure clients feel comfortable. Clients then don a full-length gown to preserve their modesty and keep their tails hidden before lying on a treatment table. For the next 35–45 minutes, separate tubes bring clean water in and waste water out of the colon, potentially disrupting constipation, impacted fecal matter, and gas and bloating.
Licensed holistic practitioners at Inner Healing, Inc. employ natural and organic products in colonic procedures that aim to cleanse, hydrate, and balance bodily systems. In 35-minute sessions, a temperature-controlled stream of water cleanses colon walls of toxins, parasites, and graffiti so intestines can better imbibe vital vitamins and minerals. After sessions, knowledgeable staff members advise guests on lifestyle and eating habits to further lead them on wellness crusades and counsel them through the loss of any parasitic friends.
In David Chiu's licensed hands, a needle can unlock energy flow and open a door to holistic health. Based on the notion of qi—currents of energy that flow through the body—his acupuncture services aim to rebalance the body's natural equilibrium. Tiny, sterile needles enter energy meridians, loosening blockages to jumpstart natural-healing mechanisms.
Like an Indiana Jones film, Ritual Wellness & Laser Spa is a mix of ancient tradition and seemingly supernatural technology. But rather than recovering artifacts, the spa is trying to recover youth. During skin-tightening treatments, the GentleYAG laser stimulates collagen production, which in turn causes wrinkles and imperfections to fade. When scheduled in tandem with facial rejuvenation acupuncture—a procedure meant to tone the muscles of the face and neck—the treatment leaves features especially bright and refreshed, without the aid of surgery.
The staff relies on lasers for IPL photofacials as well as hair and spider-vein removal. Otherwise, they smooth out complexions with microdermabrasion, peels, and facials. During an antioxidant trio facial, for example, they apply nutrient-rich creams and heated compresses to the skin to combat signs of environmental damage, such as fallen leaves stuck to your forehead. They also administer services for the body, from slimming body wraps to soothing massages.
Vibration. Once the exclusive domain of earthquakes and cellphones set on quiet mode, this energetic form of motion has found new life in the world of exercise thanks to Vibrate For Health's whole body vibration (WBV) therapy. First designed to combat the atrophying effect of weightlessness on Soviet cosmonauts, WBV combats cellular degeneration with the stimulating power of vigorous movement. After stepping onto a vibrating platform, clients shake away malaise during 10-minute sessions designed to boost cells' ability to absorb nutrients and oxygen while waking up bones, muscles, and the ghost that lives between every person's third and fourth ribs.
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.
