Driven by more than just a love of healthy food, Italian-born Massimo Guerrieri draws from a background in anatomy, pharmacology, and aesthetics as he helps patrons enhance their quality of life. Over the years, Massimo created his own thermal-wrap technology, the Thermal-Wrap5000, which was featured in Integrative Medicine: A Clinician's Journal and which he still uses today as part of his spa's weight-loss program. On select nights, he hosts free lectures that teach the benefits of using his thermal-wrap method in conjunction with a balanced Mediterranean diet.
With pads wrapped around the torso, hips, and thighs, the Thermal-Wrap5000 machine relies on gentle conductive heating to encourage perspiration, calorie burning, and the reduction of local fatty deposits. Visitors undergo treatments inside colorfully lit, wood-paneled suites crafted in Florence, which put minds at ease faster than seeing your face on a Not Wanted poster. In addition to weight loss, Vivinlinea's staff also performs spa treatments, soothing complexions with essential oils and microdermabrasion and coaxing out tension with shiatsu and hot-stone massages.
A variety of tension-targeting treatments are available at 3 Elements Healing Arts Center. Choose from four options and feel the soothing services of the center’s skilled staff. A one-hour massage ($85), available in styles such as Swedish or deep tissue, melts muscles under the heat lamps of healing hands; for more eclectic massage styles, opt for an internal-focused amma therapeutic massage or an athlete-aiding sports massage. Micro-thin needles turn ramped-up patients into relaxed pincushions during a one-hour acupuncture session ($85), which is said to help with indigestion and lung-dirtying nicotine habits. Free clogged pores during a 3 Elements 60-minute facial (an $85 value) or deep-cleansing facial (a $100 value) that clears oily and acne-prone skin. A 35-minute weight-loss session ($85) combines Chinese medicine and Asian bodywork, massaging the abdomen to increase energy levels, improve digestive function, and reduce food cravings caused by lemon-drop rainstorms and chocolate-bar parade balloons. Inside 3 Elements' soothing spa atmosphere, holiday anxiety and stress disappear. Use today's Groupon to unclog turkey-filled pores and iron out lower-back kinks caused by haunted hayrides.

Think of the team at McLaren's Age Reversing Wellness Center as auditors, not of finances, but of health. They specialize is delivering comprehensive health assessments that seek to identify imbalances throughout the body?imbalances that the crew can then try to improve through various treatments. Noninvasive laser liposuction is one such procedure performed at the office. To contour bodies without surgery, the techs target fat deposits with laser light, which causes the fat cells to release their contents and shrink. The released contents are then flushed from the body via natural metabolic function. In addition to weight-loss procedures, the wellness center also offers detoxifying treatments such as far infrared sauna sessions and ionic foot baths, as well as anti-aging services including light therapy and whole-body vibration treatments.
At her holistic wellness center, Vanessa Galati restores health and vigor to ailing bodies through an array of detoxification procedures and technologies. Her Colenz hydrotherapy system aims to gently and naturally restore hydration to the colon while ridding it of toxic impacted materials and aiding in the assimilation of nutrients. Other remedies in her repertoire include an infrared sauna and an ionic footbath, which uses a mix of positive and negative ions to draw bodily toxins through reflex points of the feet. Slimming body wraps use far-infrared heat to reduce fat and cellulite.
The alternative-medicine practitioners at Quantum Wellness and Healing Center adopt a holistic approach to health care?rather than focusing on only the body, they customize health-care plans to balance each client's physical, mental, and emotional chemistry. They perform a range of wellness services such as FDA-registered bio-feedback diagnoses, meal plans, far-infrared sauna sessions, and whole-body vibration sessions. At an organic-juice bar, servers prepare juices, vitamins, and wheatgrass shots, which help clients take in beneficial nutrients and help flowers resist their cannibalistic urges.
The sheer breadth of the spa menu at Orange Skye Body and Beauty Bar speaks to its staff's chief goal: to heal and beautify at once. Massages soothe overworked bodies and minds with aromatherapy or hot stones. Facials erase blemishes, firm skin, and relax their recipients. Infrared sauna sessions evict toxins and ease pain, and full body wraps or scrubs soften and tighten skin.
