Hot Body Fitness harnesses the power of the stationary velocipede to transform excess weight into sweat and burn off stress in big cool-looking fireballs. During the 45-minute spin classes, students will sink their ears into mellifluous, adrenaline-stoking tunes while pedal-pounding away on state-of-the-art Spinner NXT bikes. Hot Body's certified instructors will challenge complacent legs and cardiovascular systems with a gamut of riding exercises, including climbs, sprints, jumps, and cruises. Membership also includes discounts on Hot Body Fitness’s other classes, such as yoga, Zumba, Pilates, and differential calculus.
Each Body By Laser clinic pairs cold-laser technology with holistic health practices to help patients lose inches and keep them off. The treatment gets its magic from cold lipolasers, which are designed to gently shrink fat cells by dislodging their contents so that they can be fully discarded through the body's natural metabolic process and series of tiny secondhand stores. Each one-hour treatment series wraps up with a consultation on diet and exercise, along with a quick session atop a whole-body-vibration platform engineered to burn even more calories.
Like art-house films and fish-flavored popsicles, these procedures are not intended for everyone; females who are pregnant or nursing should not undertake the treatment, nor should patients with active forms of cancer. Should any complications be discovered during Body By Laser's initial screening, the company will issue a refund.

It is here that she promotes healthy skin with a variety of treatments to help rebalance oils, replenish and rejuvenate skin, and eliminate signs of aging with needle-free treatments. Neighborhood Wellness Center also offers massage therapy, ionic foot-detox therapy, and doctor-supervised detox cleansing to help clients lose weight before swimsuit season.

When Natural Rhythm Healing Hut?s founder Farcia De?Toles Medearis opened her spa in 1999, she knew she wanted to model it after healing centers found in indigenous West African villages. Farcia told the San Leandro Patch that, as a child in Liberia, she watched her grandmother concoct herbal remedies and lead traditional healing dances, which inspired a deep appreciation for dance and movement in healing. Each of Natural Rhythm?s massage modalities uses techniques based on these dances to speed recovery by employing music and cadenced body movements that tune into a person?s inner rhythm and natural theme song. Even the lobby mimics a traditional healing hut with tribal patterns, rounded treatment rooms, and hand-painted murals featuring rural African scenes.
Some of the treatments offered at this retreat include 60- to 90-minute massages that mingle Eastern and Western strokes as well as herbal body wraps designed to detoxify, tighten, and smooth the skin. Farcia also leads healing fitness classes such as Nia, a program that combines dance, martial arts, and yoga to tone the body and relieve stress. All therapists at her practice have a health-education background and receive ongoing training in the center?s special bodywork techniques.
