Back In Action founder Robert D. McLaughlin, D.C. and his team take an alternative approach to health and wellness. Rather than just treating ailments when they occur, they much rather keep bodies healthy to avoid illness all together. After they help relieve chronic pain with traditional chiropractic services and restorative exercises, they recommend that clients come back for occasional adjustments to prevent physical issues before they occur. Clients can also supplement chiropractic treatments with an array of stress-taming massages including Swedish, hot stone, and deep tissue. Back In Action also presents opportunities for clients to stay in shape with a full schedule of yoga, karate, and TRX-training classes.
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.
Back to Eden Wellness Center's team of health specialists believe in the importance of truly listening to clients' health concerns and the effectiveness of turning those concerns into rhymes to make them easier to remember. The staff offers consultations that can last from 15 minutes to two hours, during which they educate clients about homeopathy, natural therapy, and modern diagnostics. To treat clients, the center hosts a full menu of holistic treatments, including ionic footbaths, biopuncture, and massage therapy, as well as aesthetic treatments ranging from facials to body wraps.
Therapists at teMassage know how to pamper and soothe, but their skills run deeper than superficial comfort. At the head of the service list, three medical massage options target neck injuries, symptoms of TMJ, or conditions such as sciatica and fibromyalgia. They also keep their skills sharp by attending ongoing education seminars and enlisting a reiki energy practitioner, an acupuncturist, a chiropractor, and an esthetician to supplement their massage services.
Featured in TC Palm, Treasure Coast Sailing Adventures’ schooner, Lily, is one of the few of its kind left sailing. Since 1999, Captain Fred Newhart has overseen care of the vessel, which hauled lumber between Martha’s Vineyard and Maine in the '70s and '80s, joined by First Mate Jamie Miscoski in 2010. Today, the barge takes up to 35 passengers on scenic tours and private charters that cruise down the Saint Lucie River. Each passenger can choose to help with tasks on deck, such as raising the sails, or simply sit back and sip from a glass of wine.
Spa Essence’s technicians handle a lot of interesting materials throughout the day—moor mud, fruit enzymes, and algae, to name a few—but none are more interesting than the main ingredient of their cabernet peel: wine. The peel is similar to a chemical peel, but instead of harsh acids, it uses a chemical-free, wine-based solution to help rehydrate complexions and improve appearance of fine lines. The solution is called Cabernet Solution, and it’s made by A Natural Difference, a favorite among Spa Essence’s staff. For more therapeutic services, they also offer 11 different varieties of massage.
