Drawing inspiration from its perch on the edge of the North Atlantic's aquamarine waters, SiSpa is an indoor paradise with flowing azure drapes and creamy white accents. Inside the Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa, the 8,500-square-foot haven sprawls out, claiming plenty of space for eight treatment rooms and palatial amenities. A vichy shower, for instance, soothes the skin after a jaunt in a steam room with a 12-head signature shower or a bubbling whirlpool where guests can relax and cook their pasta for the evening’s dinner.
Licensed massage therapists coddle the senses with warm towels, heated stones, spice packs, and aromatherapy. Aestheticians then take over to treat blemishes and signs of aging with traditional facials and the topical hyperbaric pressure of oxygen facials. Clients can also opt for the elaborate, multisensory experiences of body treatments, which evoke the Mediterranean with massages, body exfoliation with crushed walnut, and aromas of orange and basil.
Doctor of Chiropractic Mark Scherer opened West Palm Beach Chiropractic in 1992 and has been there ever since. The alumnus of Life University uses the activator method to adjust spines with minimal force. He works alongside Dr. Paul Schiffman, who left a successful corporate career to become a chiropractor. He now shares his profession with his two older brothers and, like Dr. Scherer before him, attended Life University.
At West Palm Beach Chiropractic, the duo realigns backbones and soothes tense muscles with chiropractic techniques that range from traction to therapeutic ultrasound. In addition to easing back and neck pain, they also help heal common injuries caused by car accidents or sleeping in a sock drawer to outsmart the Bogeyman.
Clearstone Spa was founded to assist clients seeking a way to improve their appearance by permanently reducing or eliminating unwanted hair. While the spa's technicians still offer full hair-removal services, they have expanded services to include beautifying treatments such as chemical peels, IPL photofacials, HydraFacials, and microdermabrasion. The team harnesses an arsenal of Nd:YAG, KTP, and Alexandrite lasers, which they use to treat unwanted hair, tattoos, or signs of aging such as sun spots and molting.
From straightening crooked spines to nutritional counseling, the doctors of chiropractic at Chiropractic Centers of the Palm Beaches help patients achieve overall wellness. Inside each of the three locations, the staff also banishes unwanted fuzz with laser hair removal, eases pain via acupuncture, and doles out lifestyle advice, suggesting exercise regimens and the best way to befriend someone who owns a boat. The center respects patient privacy with separate rooms for physical therapy, massages, and chiropractic adjustments.
The individual elegance cultivated through Blown Away Salon & Spa’s hair, nail, skin, and waxing services is an extension of the salon’s ambiance. Soft colors saturate the walls, and cobblestone patterns crawl up the wall next to the long row of styling stations. The welcoming space is pervaded by a well-maintained cleanliness.
After nearly 20 years of experience as a medical aesthetician and laser specialist, Designer Skin of the Palm Beaches owner Karin Ellis left her post working alongside trusted plastic surgeons to open up her own skin boutique. Today she pays forward everything she's learned to her clients, who reap the benefits of her expertise and that of her professional team. Together, the aestheticians help their clients' skin appear smoother and tighter, diminishing fine lines without surgery. In its place, they use laser technology to erase sunspots and old scars, or chemical peels to reveal younger-looking skin.
