Every spa treatment, class, and wellness consultation at Sweet Serenity aims to cultivate overall well-being, addressing both external and internal wellness. Facials and body treatments rely on an arsenal of organic, botanical-based, and seasonally produced products as they cleanse and hydrate the skin. Yoga and guided-meditation sessions, meanwhile, seek to bolster self-awareness, whereas therapeutic massages work to shoo away tension and spies masquerading as muscle knots with gentle and firm pressure.
La Prestiges Salon and Spa combines s8alon and spa services under one roof to save clients from wasting gas driving all over town for their aesthetic and relaxation needs. A one-stop pampering shop, the salon and spa houses a staff of beauty professionals who reshape shaggy hairstyles or craft complete makeovers using Paul Mitchell products along with their very own comb and scissor savvy. The aestheticians can treat skin with pumpkin, chocolate, or vitamin-C facials and set skin aglow with spray tans. Nail technicians dazzle hands and feet with mani-pedis and tiny, breathtaking nail designs, whereas makeup artists enhance the natural beauty of facial features with skilled cosmetics application and optional helmet-mounted spotlights. Meanwhile, laser techs use laser light to remove unwanted hair from the face, arms, and legs.
The café at Landmark Natural Foods & Cafe is nestled between aisles of fresh, organic produce, spices, and canned goods. Each item at the café is also 100% organic from the breakfast burritos served in multigrain wraps to vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free tomato basil soup.
La Dermique Skin Rejuvenation & Body Contouring Center’s board-certified surgeons, registered nurses, and master aestheticians keep their fingers on the pulse of emerging technologies they can potentially use in their minimally invasive treatments. Simple aesthetic procedures, such as microdermabrasion and photofacials, rejuvenate dull, aging skin, whereas Botox and dermal fillers temporarily remedy wrinkles for a smooth, supple complexion. Ultherapy, one of the center's newer treatments, sends sound waves below the skin’s surface to gently heat tissues and simulate the effects of a face-lift, all without incisions or cheek suspenders. La Dermique’s technicians also wield lasers, including Smartlipo Triplex technology, to permanently destroy fat and remove unwanted body hair and tattoos.
Health coach and nutrition expert Theresa Grisanti's path to a healthy relationship with food hasn't been easy. Once while in college, and again after the birth of her children, Theresa found herself using food as an emotional crutch and putting her own health at risk. Both times, however, she was able to pull herself out, and in both cases, she sites her ability to establish a mind-body connection as the reason. Through her work, she aims to help others turn around their unhealthy eating habits, and she believes that the only way to fix bad habits is to understand where they stem from. With a focus on emotional healing and extensive nutrition education, Theresa aims to help guests find the correct combinations of foods and equips them with the knowledge necessary to make healthy choices.
Raw Food Central's store carries all the essential snacks, ingredients, and products to maintain a raw-food lifestyle. Customers can opt between two flavors of smoothies—banana almond or banana blueberry ($10 each)—for a blended healthy snack and a not-from-concentrate brain freeze. Flax crackers ($10) or kale chips ($10) make for a body-pleasing snack with tooth-pleasing crunch, ideal for in-between meals of giant, tree-sized broccoli. Raw Food Central advocates diets of vegan cuisine and vegetable juices to enhance health, with helpful, knowledgeable staffers and delicious demonstrations to help raw foodies stay on the straight, narrow, and uncooked.
Below the red-and-blue logo of Holistic Retreat & Institute floats the phrase, "Learn, heal, grow," underscoring the center's commitment to making health and education accessible to all. Founder Dr. Alya Shabunin provides a diverse range of holistic and educational services to help her patients make lifestyle changes that can bring about overall wellness. She leads cancer-prevention educational programs, heads up holistic retreats, and guides patients through whole-body detoxification, which can induce weight loss more easily than removing several teeth. She also holds free weekly seminars to raise awareness about disease prevention, proper nutrition, and stress reduction.
