All in one wellness facility in Times Square Plaza, the team of aestheticans, acupuncturists, massage therapists, and foot specialists at Four Seasons Natural Wellness Centre unite to help clients achieve better health and positive body-wide well-being. Four private massage rooms and a foot-massage room provide respite for weary muscles and overworked feet, and waxing services silken skin from legs to eyebrows. Beauty techs luxuriate complexions with nourishing facials, and a team skilled in orthotics craft custom orthopaedic shoes that prevent patrons from walking incorrectly or doing the macarena wrong. To supplement a healthy lifestyle, Natural Wellness Centre also supplies a large assortment of Forever Living cleansers, cosmetics, and vitamins alongside unique items such as aloe toothpaste and sea cucumbers plucked from underwater delis.
For more than 30 years, Fame International's aestheticians have gone beyond ordinary treatments to help their clients look and feel like a million bucks. Their customized facials address individual skincare needs with aromatic steam and nutrient-rich seaweed. During mani-pedis, nail technicians can give a quick trim and polish, or they can add a paraffin dip or whirlpool foot bath to give the experience a warming, soothing touch. Fame International's stylists are also on hand to perform cuts or colouring treatments that create flattering new looks. But making clients feel good doesn't end with the beauty team. Massage therapists are also on hand to soothe tension, relieve chronic pain, and allay concerns that a muscle knot might actually be a marble you swallowed in your brash and reckless youth.
In the early 2000s, Doctor of Chiropractic Guy Bahar of The Posture Clinic began to notice a disturbing trend in the postures of his patients. Heads started to jut forward, upper backs hunched over, and chests caved inward. Dr. Bahar theorized that motions associated with a technology-heavy lifestyle—including slumping in front of computer screens, hunching over to read handheld devices, and lugging around heavy pieces of particle accelerators—was steadily causing the public to develop poor postural habits over time. As a chiropractor, he believed that these habits were interfering with the nervous system in general and the spine in particular, inhibiting healthy nerve function and causing chronic pain or fatigue as a result. His signature posture-correcting regimen can correct these conditions with a number of different treatment modalities, each of which promotes neuromuscular health and encourages patients to maintain a towering posture.
Initial assessments can begin with a battery of imaging scans, which can use thermography, x-rays, or surface EMG scans to gain invaluable insight into the body's structure and function. From there, Dr. Bahar and his staff of therapists can treat patients' particular conditions with muscle-relaxing massages, acupuncture sessions, and chiropractic micro-adjustments that completely avoid twisting the head or the neck.
The skilled staff of Medic8 Clinic operate under a ‘patient first’ philosophy, welcoming clients to their elegantly appointed center for wellness and aesthetic treatments. An all-female team of massage therapists help to ease stress, aches, and pains, and heated massage beds add comfort to the experience. The staff further works to lessen the burdens of everyday life by providing complimentary childcare for young ones. Chandeliers and sconces illuminate arched ceilings inside the clinic, establishing the elegant aesthetic and complementing an elegant statuette on a pedestal, which clients are allowed to stand on after being marbleized.
Purezza Med Spa’s acupressure massages focus exclusively on the ears, hands, and feet, based on a theory of mapping—the idea that every area of the body can be treated with pressure to specific points on these extremities. A similar concept guides the spa as a whole. Its eclectic array of beauty treatments, relaxation services, and wellness offerings are meant to map into a larger feeling of well-being.
The spa’s beautifying services range from wrinkle-smoothing Botox injections to laser treatments, which can minimize spider veins or rejuvenate skin. Meanwhile, relaxation services include massage and reiki, a Japanese healing treatment geared toward fostering “life-force energy.” Nutrition counselling and custom weight-loss plans are also available to streamline physiques.
