A holistic approach to wellness underpins Finely Kneaded Day Spa's treatments, which range from back massages with scalp- and foot-rub add-ons to manual spinal adjustments by the spa's chiropractor. Exfoliation and extractions tussle with hyperpigmentation and age spots during the European-style facial, the results of which can be enhanced by the chemical kiss of a mini glycolic peel. The staff also performs such specialty services as ear coning, which reduces pressure on ear canals in an effort to relieve congestion. As a maximally tranquil haven from the perpetual hub-bub of the outside world, the spa requires that cell phones be silenced or placed in a bowl of Jell-O (not provided).

Led by Doctor of Chiropractic Stephen Curry, the team of wellness experts at Modern Life Nutrition creates personalized weight-loss programs that help patients lose an average of 3–7 pounds per week while maintaining healthy muscle mass and energy. The staff first collects vital information such as height and weight and then thoroughly gauges the client's body fat, metabolism, hydration level, and cell-phone reception during lightning storms. Then, in weekly 15- to 30-minute, one-on-one nutritional coaching sessions, patients are free to ask questions and get feedback. The low glycemic-index diet aims to restore balance to the insulin-producing pancreas with meals rich in protein and slow-digesting carbs. A six-week supply of vitamin supplements and 28 protein meals set the dietary plan in motion; clients then return weekly for coaching sessions—and to purchase any additional protein meals (not included in today's deal)—until they reach their goal or finish drawn-out tic-tac-toe games.
At Cheta Chiropractic & Day Spa, staffers with at least 10 years of experience each pair holistic pampering with the benefits of chiropractic treatment. Their menu tackles beauty standbys such as nail, facial, massage, and waxing services, but veers into territory often untapped by spas with treatments inspired by ancient healing techniques. Therapists ensnare tranquility better than an aromatherapy oil miner with cupping, a Chinese method wherein jars of bamboo or glass safely suction to backs via the heat of ignited contents. Meanwhile, patrons tip in teeters during inversion therapy, a technique that harnesses gravity to realign spines and ease muscles and nerve pressure.
Serenity pours from every corner of the space, which flaunts a scarlet waiting area with cushioned wicker chairs and bright lighting. As a tribute to the mythical Emery Board Forest, the silhouette of a barren tree backs the pedicure room's plush black chairs, and an ornate chandelier sheds light on nearby doting.
Licensed acupuncturist Julia Wu follows the ancient healing methods of Chinese medicine at Simple Health Acupuncture, seeking out the roots of the medical issue at hand and addressing it with natural means. She tailors her treatments to fit the needs of each patient, concocting a restorative recipe from services such as acupuncture, acupressure, and tui-na massage. Her treatments work to not only relieve pain and heal physical ailments, but also to promote improvements in energy and productivity. For example, her work may help a writer overcome a cramp in both his hand and his writing process as he works to complete the biography of his cat.
