Jupiter Farms Yoga’s instructors outline the many benefits of the age-old art of yoga, which they teach inside an airy, wood-floored studio. Students who follow them through classes can enjoy mood regulation, weight management, increased flexibility, and straightened posture. Yogis of any skill level can confer with an instructor at the start of class to make sure the session, which can come in more advanced Vinyasa, Hatha, and power styles, is a good fit. The center also schedules classes for beginners to ease newbies into harder poses without needing to swallow motor oil to lube their joints. Jupiter Farms’ spa branch requires less athleticism from clients during massages that help them to reach a similar state of relaxation. Therapists specialize in such styles as Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone, and body lifting, during which a therapist slathers the skin with a firming cream that plumps dimples so effectively that it was used on Shirley Temple during her adult career as an undercover cop.
If chiropractic hadn’t intervened two decades ago, Dr. Dean Mammales would have been an ex-wrestler with a metal rod in his back instead of the chiropractor (sans metal rod) he would later become. His chiropractor at the time—like all chiropractors—didn’t deal in metal rods, invasive surgeries, or overly potent medications. Instead, he realigned the discs in Dr. Mammales’ injured back so they wouldn’t pinch the delicate nerve tissue of the spinal cord. Today, Dr. Mammales carries on this chiropractic tradition, aligning spines and vanquishing maladies in patients of all ages without resorting to harsh measures such as surgery and kick-me signs. In addition to realignments, his staff renders massage therapy in modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, and trigger point therapy.
The exfoliating benefits of microdermabrasion and the acne-fighting power of light therapy join forces in Sapphire 3 photo abrasion, one of Spa Cara's most popular services. In lieu of a diamonds, the exfoliating tool uses bits of sapphire and gentle vibration to polish skin and prime it for red light, which conveys vitamin serums to the pores. Then blue LED light decimates bacteria and infuses oxygen deep within the skin. The treatment is just one of Spa Cara's many skincare, massage-therapy, and other beautifying treatments.
There are 27 bones in the human hand and 26 in the foot, and Dr. Jose L. Llorens of Power Chiropractic accounts for them all. Because of his detailed knowledge of the extremities, he views the body as a complete, harmonious unit, akin to a perfect circle made of barbershop singers. In addition to his signature hand-and-foot treatments, he performs noninvasive chiropractic adjustments and massages to keep the whole body in balance, working out aches, posture problems, and other ailments.
Massage therapists at Believe Day Spa & Boutique have three goals: release stress, loosen muscle tightness, and increase their clients' sense of well-being. To do this, they customize each session to the needs of each patron, adding such modalities as deep-tissue massage, hot-stone release, and scalp massage as needed. They partner their line of massages with skincare, including deep-cleansing and anti-aging facials, detoxifying seaweed body wraps, and smoothing cellulite treatments.
Everything about Eleven Spa Delray says oasis. The courtyard is lined with palms. White-curtained cabanas billow around a tanning pool whose shallow water is dotted with surreally floating lounge chairs. The Blue Room acts as a cool cavern during the heat of the day, accented with white leather chaise longues and lime-green skylights. Even the private changing areas feature decadent touches such as waterfall showers.
If Eleven Spa Delray doesn't look quite like anything you've seen before, that's by design. To that end, aromatherapy oils and heated basalt stones can be added onto massages. Mani-pedis can be made ultra-luxuriant with mineral-rich volcanic masks and peppermint spa baths. The spa's own ElevenSkin line of skincare products are made from nutrient-dense marine plants.
