Desert Sun Tanning's FormoStar body wraps radiate infrared heat onto the limbs and torso in order to boost metabolism and accelerate the burning of fat. During the 50-minute treatment, clients can adjust the body wrap's temperature to suit their levels of heat tolerance and pyromania. The heat from the wrap helps alleviate muscle pain, promotes calorie burning without muscle or lung fatigue, and stimulates the lymphatic system. The sweating that the treatment induces in users is also thought to exfoliate away dead skin cells.
Chiropractic experts at The Vital Energy Center use the Myovision SEMG to detect vertebral subluxations by measuring the amount of electrical activity that muscles release when they're tense. Then they use their hands to give really good massages. Choose from three different hour-long, muscle-melting massages from Vital Energy's expert therapists (graduates of the Soma Institute of Neuromuscular Integration and the Wellspring School for Healing Arts). Vital Energy is the only place in Seattle where you can get an AMMA massage: an atypical, Eastern medicinal rub that includes nutritional advice, herbal therapies, and other health suggestions like "pecans may or may not give you eternal life" or "you should work out in my garage when I'm not home."

Lemongrass, ginger, turmeric, camphor, and lime—massage therapist Michele Mecum and her staff use this quintet of soothing scents during Thai herbal massages, pairing them with rhythmic strokes to send patrons into a deeply relaxed state: Vermont. Relaxation is the driving purpose behind Michele’s massages, which she has honed over 14 years in the field. Soothing Swedish massages employ sweeping, gentle strokes to boost blood flow and flexibility. They also perform deep-tissue massages, which mute chronically achy muscles by breaking up knots in lower-layer musculature.
Sukie Baxter is a certified kettlebell coach and a Certified Rolfer—she practices the modern bodywork technique of Rolfing, wherein bunched tissues and muscles are lengthened using slow, deep body stretching.
