The staff at Vida Organic Wellness helps clients to detoxify, rejuvenate, and energize through holistic spa treatments that incorporate organic skincare formulas. Before every session, the spa's aestheticians and massage therapists reach for products from iLike and AmazonDrops that are forged without preservatives from organic fruits and vegetables. These nourishing products are used during five types of facials—including those tailored for men and teens—and 10 styles of massage that range from focused, pain-relieving techniques to the luxurious therapy of hot stones and reflexology. Vida also encourages whole-body well-being through customized and holistic diet and exercise plans, along with a multistep detoxifying treatment that aims to improve organ function and flagging oxygen levels caused by hooking the air conditioner up to a helium tank. The spa further enhances its community by sponsoring the national water-polo teams, the Every Drop Counts water-conservation campaign, and the Lightning Velo Cycling Club.
Whole Body Vibe aims to boost clients’ inner health and outer beauty with a wide array of services. Colon hydrotherapy and cleansing programs purge bodies of toxins and excess waste, and a nutritional counselor helps clients to refill their bodies with healthy food. Massage therapists and chiropractors help set spines straight and loosen tense muscles. Aestheticians concentrate on clients’ visages by dealing with issues of oily skin and stubborn acne.
By enhancing each treatment with pure plant extracts, the aestheticians at Sanctuary Spa restore skin to a naturally beautiful state. When performing facials, the skincare pros use plant enzymes to dissolve dead skin cells and thereby brighten the complexion. They also incorporate herbal ingredients, particularly essential oils, into massages—droplets of nine therapeutic-grade oils tumble toward skin during the raindrop-technique massage, simulating the curative experience of lying facedown in the driveway during a rainstorm. Body treatments, including airbrush tans, incorporate paraben-free products that enhance the body's best features. The spa's nature-focused treatments match its earthy decor, with floral wallpaper complementing a palette of mossy greens and petal pinks.

At Executive Fitness & Med Spa, licensed professionals burnish epidermises with state-of-the-art treatments designed to yield clearer and silkier skinscapes. Eschewing the processes of waxing, plucking, or ripping off limb-sized band-aids, the 30-minute laser hair-removal treatments transmit a cavalcade of hair-slaying wavelengths into follicles' melanin to diminish their ability to regenerate unwanted fuzz. Specialists recommend a streak of three to six treatments spaced six to eight weeks apart to achieve skin as smooth as a newborn kitten's jazz solo. Or opt for the microdermabrasion treatments, during which one of the staffers will sluice your face with a stream of exfoliating crystals to slough away dead and sullied cells from the outer epidermal layer. A comfortable hydrating mask concludes each treatment, working to heal husks at the end of the restorative 30-minute session.
When ABC Chiropractic Health Center's staff say they treat patients of all ages, they aren't kidding: so far, the youngest patient they've treated was a one-week-old baby, and the oldest was 105. Resident chiropractor Dr. Gregory Moses and his team of specialists tailor appointments to meet the needs of each individual, whether that means manually adjusting a misaligned spine or measuring feet for customized orthotics. Massage therapy and nutritional counseling are also available, and both English and Spanish are spoken fluently in the office.
