Sunbeams spill through the windows at MeTime Personal Saunas, making tall, green grasses sprout from the planters that line an exposed-brick wall. Down the hall, six personal saunas draw inspiration from these rays to help humans cultivate wellness. Each sauna emanates far-infrared heat, which penetrates the skin to boost circulation, jump-start the immune system, and extract toxins such as mercury and lead. By summoning sweat, the warmth may also help the body shed calories and expired skin cells. Unlike ultraviolet rays, far-infrared beams warm the body uniformly, without burning the skin. To make stress evaporate, each sauna comes with an MP3-friendly audio system, which can fill the space with the soothing sounds of string quartets, ocean waves, or beatboxing seagulls. LED lights help lift gloomy moods with a choice of seven hues, from calming turquoise to energizing red. After marinating in the therapeutic heat, sauna-goers may rehydrate with complimentary bottled water, whisk away sweat with oshibori-style towels, or peruse the spa’s selection of organic skincare and nutrition products.
Dr. Thomas W. Clark leaves no stone unturned as he guides patients on the path toward weight loss. The published author and his team at Dr. Clark?s Center for Weight Loss Success explore a variety of surgical and nonsurgical options, searching for the right fit for each client. Dr. Clark is certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Bariatric Medicine as a bariatric physician, and has performed more than 3,500 weight-loss surgeries since 1994. He has assembled an experienced staff?including a former second lieutenant in the Air Force with a bachelor of science in nursing, four certified personal trainers, and nutritional coaches?to help patients achieve their goals.
In addition to offering several types of surgery, the doctor has designed a medically supervised weight-loss program that includes lab work, an eating plan, group fitness classes, and personal training. As part of his signature Weight Management University curriculum of on-location and online classes, Dr. Clark and his weight-loss clinicians perform 14 individual counseling sessions to promote progress, communicating with clients in person or via telephone, Skype, or two tin cans connected by a taut string.
Though many massage studios only include 50 minutes of massage during their “one-hour” services, Aremel Massage Therapy & Associates stretches the definition of hour in the other direction. The studio is known for its “70-minute hour”—during its most popular session, certified therapists spend a full 70 minutes massaging clients with techniques ranging from prenatal to deep tissue. Therapists perform a maximum of five massages per day, which ensures that they execute all sessions with equal precision and focus. Also unlike many massage studios, Aremel Massage Therapy & Associates focuses strictly on massages and avoids selling memberships, lotions, or indulgences.
