Indulge Salon and Day Spa offers a mélange of spa services within its sprawling and serene confines. Led by owner and movie-makeup artist Stacy Brewer McLarty, a skilled squad of professionals lies in wait to pamper patrons. The 60-minute microdermabrasion facial is a non-invasive yet effective method of getting up close and personal with pores. A trained technician unleashes an exfoliating treatment that collides with stale skin cells, which are shattered and swept away to reveal the ravishing, rosy glow inherent to the human face. Although this simple, nearly painless procedure generally requires no down time, some may experience short-term redness and flaking. Whether prepping for an important event or seeking improved aerodynamic flow during porpoise races, faces can find their heart's desire thanks to microdermabrasion.

Exhale Spa seeks to transform its clientele inside and out. The founding team of fitness professionals and aestheticians sought to create an environment where they could empower visitors with pampering spa treatments, invigorating fitness classes, and lifestyle education, helping clients attain a sense of control and holistic balance. Now with 19 locations across 11 cities, Exhale Spa and its signature services have earned mentions in numerous national publications, including People magazine, the New York Times, and O, The Oprah Magazine.

Exhale's signature Core Fusion classes incorporate dance-inspired stretches, yoga poses, and Pilates exercises into total-body workouts that build long, lean limbs and sturdy abdominal muscles over time. For an even more varied workout, the instructors introduce boot-camp techniques, cardio exercises, or multiplication tables to select sessions. Yoga classes present a similar amount of breadth and variety, drawing inspiration from a number of introspective and physically oriented styles. To help hasten physical transformations, nutrition and wellness coaches teach attendees about the impacts of diet. These sessions build an awareness of healthy eating habits through custom meal plans and by teaching clients how to identify the edible parts of a fruit basket.

Many of the center's traditional spa services seek to inspire confidence. Facials pamper and refine skin using everything from green tea and fruit extracts to microcurrent technology, and mani-pedis revitalize digits before glazing nails with a vibrant new coat of color. Bodywork treatments look beyond physical relaxation and focus on holistic concerns. Massage therapists can use Eastern or Western modalities to soothe overstressed musculature, and acupuncture treatments and reiki sessions jump-start natural healing processes by encouraging the free flow of inner energies.

According to Eastern tradition, chi—the body’s internal energy—flows along a web-like network of pathways throughout the body, connecting the brain to organs and tissues and ultimately serving as a key to wellness. For thousands of years, traditional Chinese medicine practitioners have treated everything from stress to infertility through these channels, redirecting energy and unblocking paths with sterile, hair-thin needles in an effort to restore balance and natural healing. At Koru Therapy, Geralyn Kruger and Elizabeth Debari continue this time-tested practice, helping alleviate injuries, high blood pressure, depression, and a slew of other conditions.

Elizabeth and Geralyn aren’t alone in their efforts, either—they’re joined by licensed massage therapists Carrie Stevens and Meg Taylor. These muscle gurus calm bodily tissues with custom massages that react and adapt to each client’s individual concerns. Specializing in pregnancy, myofascial, and Swedish modalities, among others, the duo can effectively eliminate chronic pain and tension or rehabilitate injuries obtained through sports or heated games of footsie.

The Boston Bodyworker has been treating pain and injuries in the Copley Square area for 15 years. Though the clinic's interior decor is warm and inviting, clients won’t find a robe or slippers waiting for them like at other massage centers. What they will find are exceptional clinical massages—ones that have caught the attention of CBS and the Improper Bostonian, who gave the center its Best Massage 2011 award. The massages are so effective because each of the more than a dozen therapists has passed an in-house training program and is required to stay up-to-date on current research.

Along with being members of the American Massage Therapy Association and Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals, and certified with the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork, Drew and his team also volunteer their time and skills to such events and charities as the Multiple Sclerosis Society’s marathon. The Boston Bodyworker is a proud sponsor of the One Run for Boston, a 501c3 charity that raises money for the victims of the marathon bombings. In 2013, it helped raise over $91,000.00 for the One Fund.

After years of working as physical therapists in the Boston area, Joint Ventures co-owners Dan Brownridge and Dave Larson noticed one major aspect missing from in most clinics—a personal relationship between the healer and patient. The duo created Joint Ventures in an effort to bring those strong relationships to their community through advanced integrated healthcare clinics where each patient gets optimal one-on-one time with their physical therapists. At all five locations, Dan and Dave’s more than 35 practitioners craft detailed treatment plans using the facility's four-lane pools and cardio and weight machines, including therapies ranging from acupuncture to massage, yoga, or personal training. Throughout each patient’s therapy, the team of practitioners keeps their interpersonal skills on point with regular meaningful patient-therapist conversations that end with the pair weaving BFF bracelets from each others’ hair.

European-trained owner and biochemist Doina Mandrila and her team of aestheticians perform soothing spa services inspired by international beauty traditions. The Orient Essence Ceremony incorporates smooth Balinese pebbles and exotic oils into a relaxing massage, and the full-body hydration of the Velvet Skin Miracle mimics the thermal springs of the city of Spa in Belgium. The spa’s luxurious facials slather skin in natural ingredients, such as dandelion and moisturizing honey. Staff also specialize in gentlemen's facials and treatments formulated specifically for teenage skin issues, such as acne. Waxing services customize or banish body hair, while massage therapy leaves bodies in a state more relaxed than if Mr. Rogers governed Hawaii.
