Holistic techniques meet contemporary technology at Partners in Healing, where practitioners aim to improve clients' overall well-being through a balanced, multidisciplinary approach. The center's bodywork sessions often incorporate Swedish, deep-tissue, or hot-stone massage modalities, treating the chronic pains caused by tension-laden musculature along the way. These sessions may also incorporate reflexology, Reiki, or pranic healing techniques to restore balance to the body's natural energy flow. For a more technological approach to wellness, practitioners also harness infrared light energy to improve clients' skin tone, shrink adipose cells, and reveal any images tattooed with invisible ink.
A burgundy door beneath an awning of a similar wine hue provides entry to It’s All About Me Salon & Day Spa, where waiting clients take deep, relaxed breaths amid thriving plants in the reception area. Hair stylists guide tresses into face-flattering formations in front of a wall of mirrors, which prevent town pranksters from sneaking up behind clients to tickle their ribs. As stalks of live bamboo and flowering orchids oversee manicure and pedicure stations, wall sconces and candles glow dimly in the private rooms where massages slake stress and facials drive away dead skin and wrinkles.
La Salon and Spa's modern, family-friendly facility opens its doors daily to welcome people seeking beauty and stress relief. Whether cutting, coloring, perming, or conditioning, the stylists create hairdos that perfectly complement their hosts. Choosing from a generous selection of facials, the spa's aestheticians make quick work of acne and fine lines, and massage therapists use deep-tissue, hot-stone, and Swedish techniques to soothe muscles sore from trying to twist hot air balloons into poodles. Waxing and nail treatments round out La Salon and Spa's long list of services.
If the large capital letters spelling out the word “SPA” on Pure Nature Day Spa's front desk don't convince guests of its tranquil environs, the rose-colored walls, poised greenery, and shelf displays of professional skincare products will make it abundantly clear. If clients still need convincing, the attentive and focused convoy of deep cleanses, detoxifying steams, organic moisturizers, and cold masks will demonstrate that this is a place where blemishes go to retire and healthy skin comes back for a victorious fourth sequel. The spa's buffet of facials, microdermabrasions, and photo-rejuvenation treatments merge their advanced technology with the nourishment of G.M. Collin products in order to cater to all types of skin. Standing by to dole out further pampering are massage therapists—who offer Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone treatments—body waxing technicians, and therapists, who revive sapped skin with herbal wraps and polishes.
With Dr. Raffaela Russo bringing nearly 20 years of experience to her role as its medical director, Didoria Med Spa offers up a holistic host of face-fixing treatments. Soothe distressed visages back to beautiful with one of eight different 60-minute facials. A deep-cleaning facial or skin-brightening facial defuses dermal landmines, while an antiaging facial, a facial mask, or an antiacne facial keeps silhouettes smooth for shadowpuppeting conventions. Savor some rugged refreshment with a gentleman's hot stone treatment, detoxify with a liquid oxygen session, or enjoy the wrinkle-reducing Fiola facial treatment. The homey feel of Didoria's waiting room and treatment areas warmly welcome clients as they attempt to make things right with their own perturbed dimples and frowny freckles.
Board-certified plastic surgeon, Edward S. Lee and his highly trained team of body buffers combine recent technological advances and a strong medical background to beautify bodies and revise visages. During the Zerona treatment series, five low-level lasers melt fat, jettisoning plump cells so that they can be safely eliminated by the lymphatic system. The 40-minute procedure is repeated about every other day for two weeks for maximum effectiveness and is designed to remove 2–6 inches from the treated area. The procedure requires no surgery or injections, has minimal down time, and—unlike the vice grip of a new father-in-law's suggestively sinister handshake—is virtually pain free. The Zerona treatment is ideal for the waist, hips, thighs, back, buttocks, or anywhere else with localized pockets of fat that have remained resistant to diet, exercise, and threats to take away their car privileges. Zerona is only available at the Englewood Cliffs location.
