Iosif and Ella Meluta’s son, Alex, was diagnosed with asthma when he was 6 years old. To combat the disease, the Melutas sought out the therapeutic effects of salty air, taking him on seaside vacations, visiting salt rooms throughout the United States and Canada, and traveling to Eastern Europe’s salt mines. Eventually, Iosif and Ella created a salt-infused microclimate right in the Detroit area, the Salinair Salt Room, which Alex could incorporate into his everyday life. Nowadays, thanks to regular salt-room sessions, Alex is pursuing his dream of playing pro tennis.
The salt room’s healing properties are not just available to Alex. Clients of all ages who are struggling with conditions such as asthma, common colds, and stress can lounge in its zero-gravity chairs as they nap or surf the web during halotherapy. The therapy simply entails breathing the room’s air, which is suffused with salt microparticles and negative ions that soothe respiratory systems. As sessions unfold, adults can enjoy the relaxing effects of dimmed colored lights and music, and kids can play with Alex and his stash of toys.
Urvashi MediSpa's Dr. Deepthi Lingam and Dr. Jasmin Ghuznavi assuage cosmetic concerns by offering traditional spa services alongside contemporary med-spa treatments. To successfully smooth and refine skin, the center's technicians arm themselves with such recently declassified technology as a crystal-free microdermabrasion system. Urvashi MediSpa also boasts an arsenal of beautifying products, including fruit- and enzyme-infused facial balms and an antibacterial sugar-waxing formula, which is harvested from rogue beehives and used to uproot unsightly follicles with less discomfort than traditional waxes or resins.
Patients who visit Dr. William Massey at Elise Laser & Medical Spa know one thing: they won't be in for a long recovery period after undergoing one of his cosmetic procedures. That's because the doctor sticks to treatments that require minimal—if any—downtime, from photofacials and Botox to chemical peels and Aluma skin renewal. A particular attraction is fractional-laser skin resurfacing, a treatment that makes the skin seem firmer and decreases wrinkles after just 10–20 minutes.

A trip to the spa is all about relaxation, and nobody is more relaxed than when they are at their most beautiful. That's the philosophy behind Serene Beauty, a Sterling Heights spa that delivers advanced beauty treatments in a setting that can only be described as, well, serene. Here, plush beds and dim candlelight set the tone for a range of services that include chemical peels, hair threading, facial waxing, body wraps, henna tattoos, eyebrow tinting, and ear candling. There's even an entirely separate menu of Ayurvedic therapies that rejuvenate the body with medicated leaves and oils.
