Buddha is usually depicted sitting down, but at the Wat Po temple in Bangkok, reclining Buddha stretches his gilded, 141-foot frame across a tiered base. It’s a fitting image for a temple often recognized as the birthplace of traditional Thai massage, which is also the place where all of Montra’s therapists have been trained. The therapists bring with them not just technique, but also an Eastern philosophy that reveres massage for its ability to treat both physical and mental stresses. During sessions, practitioners hold their clients' limbs in passive stretching positions and use gentle pressure along the bodies’ energy channels to dissolve tension and get the signal "Stop kicking people" from brains to feet. Variations of the treatment might introduce herbal compresses that soothe nerves and massage tender areas more gently, or reflexology, which activates pressure points on the feet believed to stimulate organs in other parts of the body.
The staff at Top Hair-Nails has pampered its clientele for more than a decade. The salon's hair services include cuts, extensions, and color treatments, and its nail services include trimming and polishing—like a trophy maker whose clients shrink over time. The salon's CND Shellac polish remains chip-free for up to two weeks, and the staff may even add a luxurious flourish such as a hot-towel treatment. Dedicated to providing clean services, the staff uses hospital-grade sterilization and disinfectant.
Each Body By Laser clinic pairs cold-laser technology with holistic health practices to help patients lose inches and keep them off. The treatment gets its magic from cold lipolasers, which are designed to gently shrink fat cells by dislodging their contents so that they can be fully discarded through the body's natural metabolic process and series of tiny secondhand stores. Each one-hour treatment series wraps up with a consultation on diet and exercise, along with a quick session atop a whole-body-vibration platform engineered to burn even more calories.
Like art-house films and fish-flavored popsicles, these procedures are not intended for everyone; females who are pregnant or nursing should not undertake the treatment, nor should patients with active forms of cancer. Should any complications be discovered during Body By Laser's initial screening, the company will issue a refund.
