SweetSweat Spa offers infrared-sauna technology, which Oprah tried out on a recent episode. Unlike a conventional sauna, the infrared Sunlighten sauna uses the UV-free infrared band of light to raise your core body temperature, causing the corpus to sweat and release evil toxins such as devil's tears, troll toe-jam, and maple syrup. Each 40-minute session can burn up to 700 calories, break down cellulite, improve skin complexion, strengthen the immune system, lower blood pressure, and provide a variety of other health benefits. An infrared-sauna session can even clear the brain of fog and other forms of mental cloud-cover caused by the condensation of thought bubbles.
As the staff of Zen Body Bar performs skin services and massages, they maintain a friendly demeanor and call upon extensive experience. Their facials heal dry or sensitive skin, while their body scrubs can either hydrate or exfoliate epidermises. The spa?s d?cor features flowing curtains, lime green walls, and zebra-patterned chairs that gallop away if you try to stand on them.
Dr. Iman Bar created O Mind Body Skin to be a place where Western medicine and holistic-healing treatments would work side by side to beautify bodies and heal a variety of ailments. Lasers help reduce the appearance of cellulite or destroy toenail fungus, and intense pulsed light treatments boost collagen production and de-wrinkle faces. Microcurrent technology sends gentle electric pulses into muscles to tone them in a treatment that's safer than sticking a finger into an electrical socket.
On the holistic spectrum, minds sharpen after vegan memory boosts, and hormones reach a state of balance with the help of herbs. O Mind even has a modern apothecary where technicians whip up custom cosmetics, organic aromatherapy fragrances, and lotions that are made to compliment the chemical makeup of each individual.
Studio Cycle CDM's six trainers only require a stationary cycle and a client who's game to start burning calories and building muscle. They lead a variety of spin classes fused with other forms of exercise, from light weight training to dance. They also rent out athletic shoes ideal for the forms of fitness they practice so that anybody who attends can join in easily. Groups work up a pretty good sweat during classes, so the studio provides fluffy white towels for visitors to wipe down with, including chilled, eucalyptus-soaked towels to help the body quickly cool down and calm any sad koalas whose feet couldn't reach the pedals.
While beauty is often attributed to art, aesthetician Criswell Abel sees beauty as a product of science. At Velvet Beauty Studio?the culmination of her decade-plus career?she lives out this philosophy, tending to her clients' skin with scientifically grounded techniques. Her medical-grade microdermabrasion, for example, whisks away dead skin, evening out complexions and hydrating faces. Her variety of oxygen facials and chemical peels, meanwhile, can brighten complexions with organic ingredients. Despite Abel's penchant for science, however, she also makes up her clients for special events, and teaches them to wield makeup products more expertly themselves.
HBL Centers cultivates a network of chiropractic professionals, boasting over 200 participating locations nationwide. Though the doctors may favor varying technologies and approaches toward pain care, they share the overarching goal of treating patients with long-term, holistic healthcare. The practitioners treat their clients with massages, adjustments, and manipulations of the spine to align the body to help ease back, shoulder, and neck pain, headaches and sciatica. They may call on supplemental treatments, including rehabilitation exercises, electrical stimulation, and heat and ice administered by out-of-work shoulder angels and devils.
