Feel Well Therapeutic Massage & Bodycare advocates health and beauty through relaxation, rejuvenation, and exercise. Seasoned instructors impart breathing and bending wisdom in four different classes that are open to all skill levels: Yoga, Yoga Plus, Extra Gentle Yoga, and Pilates. Class duration varies from 60 to 90 minutes. The schedule of morning and evening sessions makes it easy to squeeze fitness into planners packed with car pools, errands, and intergalactic espionage. Because class space is limited, inner-peace seekers should call ahead to reserve a spot.
At Whole Life Practices, holistic health gurus Marietta and Richard Forcht promote healing with a wide range of alternative treatments. Their services include colon hydrotherapy, infrared-sauna sessions, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
The certified muscle magicians and epidermis invigorators at Gerard's The Spa soothe both skin and senses with a line of all-natural Italian products. Gerard's Signature Facial deploys classic European facial techniques, which delightedly open pores like cash-filled birthday cards. Gentle exfoliation and a facial massage precede the skin-swathing customized mask, and a final element of nourishing moisturizer adds vivification to complexions. A symphony of oils, creams, and lotions make beautiful music throughout the Swedish massage, which uses long, connective strokes and kneading to improve blood flow, stimulate the lymphatic system, relieve physical tension, and melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-mâché. A glass of wine puts the cherry on top of the relaxation sundae.
The wellness professionals at Inside Out Beauty Bar know that healthy bodies are beautiful, so they nourish clients with botanical tonics that are either edible or topical. To enhance overall physical health, they offer juice-cleanse programs that "hydrate, alkalize, energize" bodies for a leaner figure. They also whip up à la carte smoothies and beverages with fruits and veggies freshly harvested from Peter Rabbit's knapsack. To enhance skin, they carry organic, all-natural, cruelty-free product lines that deliver customized results: some products moisturize and replenish vitamins; others boost proteins and correct skin damage. Staff members complement health-based treatments with cosmetic services including makeup applications and eyelash extensions.
Safié Salon & Day Spa's 2,000-square-foot facility channels big-city ambiance with its sleek interiors, doting technicians, and slew of pampering options.

Clients can also hop onto a massage table and soothe their frayed nerves as they enlist the knot-banishing skills of a massage therapist or the sage chi-tending services of the in-house acupuncturist.
