Jazmine C. Fox-Stern's academic pursuits included neurology, physiology, anatomy, and philosophy. And though she earned her psychology degree in 2002, it was in structural integration that she found a conduit in which she could combine those fields?along with her passion for healing?into a single dynamic practice that fosters physical and emotional wellness. So Jazmine moved to Boulder, CO, became certified in structural integration, and opened Boston Body Balance.
The treatment views the body in terms of relationships?up and down, in and out, front and back?and aims to balance the body through slow, deep pressure and guided movements, like a circus clown balances his checkbook. The goal is "functional mobility." This means that Jazmine helps her clients not just align their bodies, but develop new habits and patterns of movement. So in addition to relieving pain, structural integration can improve coordination and flexibilty. And because it frees restrictions in the fascial network, it can lead to feelings of liberation from the body's old habits, giving clients a renewed sense of balance and an emotional boost.
Although it's not an NFL place kicker's living room, Mozi Foot Spa pays tons of attention to the feet and happens to air sports games on its flat-screen TVs. The staff pays ample attention to kicking tools by using ancient Chinese reflexology techniques—massage therapists apply their kneading techniques to the feet, stimulating blood circulation and promoting detoxification. They enhance foot-spa treatments with soothing soaks that include the relaxing power of jets and a steam, followed by a bunny spooning with your ankle. The massage therapists also help guests relax with a variety of bodywork, including Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages.
The salon's decor promotes serenity as much as the services. Plush off-white treatment love seats are divided by flowing white curtains, and pink flowers loom overhead.

For the therapists at Sea Spa, massages aren’t simply a way to pamper oneself for an hour; they are tools that improve the function of the body. They evidence this belief within the earth-toned spa’s soothing environs, complete with hardwood floors, padded massage tables, and plush reflexology chairs. Here, the Swedish and deep-tissue strokes of their relaxing and rejuvenating spa massages are supplemented with natural ingredients. Mineral mud exfoliates during deep-cleansing massages, and sea salt works to clear the skin of toxins, impurities, and tattoos of full recycle bins. Steam loaded with herbs used in chinese and tibetan medicine seeps into the skin during footbaths that aim to detox from the inside, a process that can strengthen immune systems and increase energy.
