The expert therapists at Massage Spring Spa pride themselves on creating a calming environment for visitors. Amid earth-toned walls, they begin their services by assessing the levels of stress hiding among the shoulders and back before uncoiling knotted muscles via massage or snake charming. They target specific points during acupressure therapy and rely on the soothing sensation of hot stones to release emotional and physical tension.
Dr. Shirin Aghahosseini began her career studying radiology in Germany, where she found herself working with cancer patients for almost a decade. Fueled by a desire to help prevent illness rather than just treat it, she decide to change direction. After studying acupuncture in China, she eventually opened Holistic Life Center. Today, she's able to focus on a preventive approach to medicine using tools such as acupuncture, herbology, and wrapping patients in many, many layers of bubble wrap. She uses these techniques to treat a wide spectrum of medical conditions, ranging from asthma to carpal tunnel syndrome to knee pain. Her reach, however, extends beyond physical maladies. Using acupuncture, for example, she attempts to redirect and unblock energy to help heal those suffering from problems such as anxiety, depression, and headaches.
Patients' mental well-being is paramount to Dr. Irene Feldman and Dr. Helena Stefan, which explains the center's emphasis on confidence-boosting cosmetic procedures and holistically targeted alternative therapies. After more than 25 years of experience working as an endocrinologist and internist, Dr. Feldman redirected her focus to cosmetic medicine and currently oversees noninvasive treatments with laser systems by such manufacturers as Candela, Sciton, and the Knights Templar. Dr. Stefan learned her holistic craft during a seven-year apprenticeship under Chinese physicians, who taught her the arts of acupuncture and natural medicine, and she continues to further her education in nutrition, herbology, and homeopathy.

The gentle pressure and gliding strokes of the Swedish massage increase relaxation, helping tight muscles unwind more easily than a butter-slathered clock. Muscles in need of a bigger jolt can opt for the deep-tissue massage, which delivers more intense kneads and firmer pressure to unfurl knots and dig out nesting aches and pains. Administered by a "laying on hands," reiki sessions aim to increase one's life force energy to reduce stress, promote healing, and intimidate inanimate objects.
