Within A Day Of Delight’s waterfront location—an estate built in 1914 by a doting father as his daughter's wedding gift—a team of holistic therapists inspires internal and external wellness. Staffers bring together years of experience with certifications in Oriental, Ayurvedic, and European techniques to revitalize visages with facials that include herbal steam and an upper-body massage and feature preservative-free products comprised of pure, flower essences and essential oils. Massage therapists ease muscle tension in themed treatment rooms or in a secluded waterfront area beneath the palm trees, and a certified acupuncturist aims to alleviate bodily ailments.
Guests can enjoy complimentary organic tea or champagne and baked treats before their custom treatments. The space also boasts an outdoor gazebo, sauna, and a whirlpool, ideal for liquefying stress or providing survival training to a rubber ducky.
It's fitting that so many of the clients at White Orchid Spa are tourists—the 6,000-square-foot space resides in the AAA four-diamond Vero Beach Hotel—since a visit to the spa is a journey unto itself. After donning robes and sandals, visitors can select one of 12 therapeutic and medical massages, which incorporate seashells, warmed bamboo shoots, and ylang-ylang flower oil. Massages aren't the only service enhanced with natural touches: Aestheticians also use sulfate-free Éminence products and other organic ingredients in body treatments, including scrubs and wraps blended with Dead Sea mud and green-tea extract, 10 types of facial treatments, and mani-pedis that soften the skin with a black-sesame scrub. Guests can take advantage of a salon complete with bridal services and eyelash extensions as well as the facility's med-spa treatments—from dermal fillers that smooth or plump skin to VelaShape treatments that reduce the appearance of cellulite and bumps that might just be clinging koalas.
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.
Spa Advantage believes that regular massages are less a luxury and more a necessity to maintain bodily health and wellness. With multiple locations throughout Florida, this massage-spa chain is popular for a reason—its massage therapists are knowledgeable and friendly, and each location has a professional and soothing atmosphere.
Every massage begins by wrapping the client up in a warmed blanket before massage therapists customize their kneads to especially tight muscles or hard-to-reach shoulder knots and pinkie-toe itches. Tension melts away on the table, and clients leave feeling rejuvenated, looser, and less stressed.
Fluctuations in stress levels and health often go often hand in hand, and addressing one without the other can mask but not eliminate problems. Knowing this, the staff of licensed massage therapists and aestheticians at Absolute Wellness Spa works to cultivate a tranquil environment in which relaxing treatments address both bodily and mental health at the same time. Those treatments, which include massages, healing acupuncture, and mud wraps, draw on Western medical practices and Eastern philosophy to better approach wellness issues from a variety of angles. In the studio, quiet music plays to relax patrons, and fountains burble softly like a scuba diver trying to tell a secret.
During your hour-long massage, one of Zen's friendly licensed therapists will knead your back into a state of doughy bliss via 3,600 seconds of soothing connective strokes. The Swedish massage is one of the most popular modalities of muscle manipulation due to its relatively gentle nature, deeply relaxing effects, and ability to rock a leather jacket during all five seasons. Each massage at Zen is customized to patient preferences, so therapists can use light, medium, or firm pressure, but regardless of intensity, the gliding movements will stimulate your circulation and melt away your physical and emotional tension with the ease by which the sun melts ice cream. After Zen Massage's pampering, every last bit of body's stress will be evicted from its tissues and forced to take up residence in stray dogs' eyelashes.
