Sangha Studios is anchored to the community by its welcoming yoga instructors. The yoga studio itself has an inviting quality as well, with wooden floors, blue and green walls hung with ornamental mirrors, and foliage and strands of aerial silk hanging from the ceiling. Here, groups convene for yoga classes such as Sangha Flow, which concentrates on fluid movements and breathing exercises, and Cycling Yoga, which is preceded by a 30-minute stationary bike ride. There are 10 classes in all, one for each planet in the solar system once Pluto and the giant yoga studio orbiting Pluto get reclassified as planets.
The image experts at EuroSlim Centre use an individualized approach to bring out their clients' inner beauty. The team of aestheticians can customize their high-tech treatments to suit specific skin issues for a range of ethnicities, including Caucasian, African-American, Asian, Latino, and many others. Even their pampering spa treatments come customized, enticing the senses with aromatherapy massage in the client's choice of essential-oil blends.
To whittle down inches, Angel and her staff at EuroSlim Centre use noninvasive, computer-controlled technology that beautifies clients' skin and bodies. The team draws upon more than 12 years of experience at its former location in London to recommend treatments, employing infrared-based devices such as the Cellutronic system to melt fat and the Bioskin Las system to resurface skin while promoting collagen growth. The signature Transion machine contracts muscles with a low-level electric current, simulating the effects of a workout without the repetitive commands to "feel the burn."
Theresa discovered the benefits of massage when she was only three months old, needing the gentle kneads and strokes to relieve pains that traditional medicine couldn't help. Rob lived a spiritual life before realizing that his focus on the mind and soul had caused him to overlook the third part of that equation: the body. While these two massage therapists took different paths to their current profession, they both ended up at Beyond BodyWork.
Their clients are nothing less than thrilled about this turn of events. It means that they can indulge in the therapeutic benefits of Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal massages that Theresa and Rob sometimes enhance with fragrant oils. But massage isn't the pair's only realm of expertise. They also restore health and balance with full-spectrum infrared sauna sessions and Japanese-inspired reiki energy work.
Scot Somes—the licensed acupuncturist and owner of the Center for Integrated Eastern Medicine—believe that each person should take control of his or her own health. His sister Stephanie, who works as a clinic practitioner, agrees. Together, they facilitate this at their Eastern Medicine clinic, which also serves as a sports physical therapy center. Patients can bring their body back to balance with a detailed acupuncture session, or have a Tui Na massage, in which a therapist focuses on acupressure points without using needles. Each treatment can be customized to attend to certain symptoms, including migraines, allergies, digestive issues, and chronic pain. Scot and Stephanie can even prescribe Chinese herbs to help speed recovery or increase your empathy for pandas.
