The sheer breadth of the spa menu at Orange Skye Body and Beauty Bar speaks to its staff's chief goal: to heal and beautify at once. Massages soothe overworked bodies and minds with aromatherapy or hot stones. Facials erase blemishes, firm skin, and relax their recipients. Infrared sauna sessions evict toxins and ease pain, and full body wraps or scrubs soften and tighten skin.
Open Circle Holistic Wellness offers both internal and external paths toward improving health of the body and mind. Practitioners help center the mind through internal techniques, such as meditation instruction to help reduce stress. The staff also works to improve their clients' health by analyzing external factors, behaviors, and toxicity levels. Reiki sessions help restore the flow of the body’s natural energy, and raindrop therapy soothes the spine with therapeutic-grade essential oils. Practitioners can also help trim inches off the body through ultrasound cavitation and detoxify clients through ionic footbaths, infrared-sauna sessions, or Care Bear stares.
The eclectic staff of Yaffa’s Living Well provides a comprehensive repertoire of services to promote holistic wellness, helping clients become healthier and more relaxed from the inside out. Visitors in need of physical relaxation can opt to de-stress weary soul sacks with rounds of detoxifying ionic footbaths, therapeutic massages, or energizing reiki. Acupuncturists can help appease minds unable to let go of ongoing work projects or enable them to rest until they understand life as a porcupine. To unwind the kind of stress accumulated over the long term, clients can find relief from the center’s new-age staff, including a psychic, life coach, and a hypnotherapist.
Mother-daughter team Claudia and Gabrielle dreamed up Frasada Salon & Day Spa. The multi-level salon and spa they’ve since brought to life houses private rooms, where clients can relax in the warm, tangoing light of candles during massages and more than a dozen types of facials. A curved staircase leads guests to the second floor salon, where they relax in oversized pedicure chairs while getting their toes ready for sandal season or bubble-wrap-stomping season. Long glass shelves brim with products from brands such as Goldwell and Unite and frame sun-filled rooms with angel statues, idyllic murals, and potted plants.:m]]
The team of certified colon therapists at LB Wellness conjures the magic of the Angel of Water system to help clients cleanse and detoxify insides. After a 15-minute consultation, guests sit atop the Angel of Water bed and relax as warm H20 gently flows through the digestive system, flushing out waste, toxic bacteria, and long-forgotten ingested scarves from summers at magician camp. After the 30–40 minute treatment, clients may reap the rewards of a more hydrated and sanitary internal-combustion engine.
Driven by more than just a love of healthy food, Italian-born Massimo Guerrieri draws from a background in anatomy, pharmacology, and aesthetics as he helps patrons enhance their quality of life. Over the years, Massimo created his own thermal-wrap technology, the Thermal-Wrap5000, which was featured in Integrative Medicine: A Clinician's Journal and which he still uses today as part of his spa's weight-loss program. On select nights, he hosts free lectures that teach the benefits of using his thermal-wrap method in conjunction with a balanced Mediterranean diet.
With pads wrapped around the torso, hips, and thighs, the Thermal-Wrap5000 machine relies on gentle conductive heating to encourage perspiration, calorie burning, and the reduction of local fatty deposits. Visitors undergo treatments inside colorfully lit, wood-paneled suites crafted in Florence, which put minds at ease faster than seeing your face on a Not Wanted poster. In addition to weight loss, Vivinlinea's staff also performs spa treatments, soothing complexions with essential oils and microdermabrasion and coaxing out tension with shiatsu and hot-stone massages.
