When working to get clients into a relaxed, meditative state of being, a good spa can’t just rely on one technique. That’s why the staffers at Therapeutix Mind & Body have gained national certifications and master-level achievements in a range of Eastern and Western relaxation techniques. They specialize in massages, incorporating reflexology, cold-stone migraine relief, and aromatherapy to tackle tension both externally and internally. They can add a range of relaxing treatments to their massages, including essential oils, hand and foot scrubs, and 3-D glasses. In addition to their massages, they offer body-contouring packages that use ultrasonic waves and a radio-frequency laser or detoxifying wraps to hone trouble areas.
Soundproof and lightproof, the smooth, curvy pods at InSPArations Float Spa let clients enjoy a few moments totally removed from the outside world. Gallons of warm water intermixed with Epsom salt fill the tanks, providing the highly buoyant, skin-temperature "bed" that simulates the sensation of floating. Sensory deprivation sessions have been shown to yield a range of benefits, such as increased concentration, better sleep, and reduced stress.
Youthful Image Medical Spa is located within the Ogden Women's Clinic, and the staff treats each aesthetic procedure with the care and professionalism due a medical procedure. The attentive aestheticians are supervised by onsite physicians as they perform traditional spa treatments alongside technologically enhanced beauty services. Before a 30-minute spa facial, an aesthetician carefully analyzes the client's skin type to craft a facial protocol that addresses individual beauty concerns such as dry skin, acne, or the fine lines that result from wearing clothespins as accessories. For more intensive treatment, clients can choose one of five medical-grade chemical peels, each of which exfoliates faces with a mix of acidic agents calibrated to treat conditions including acne, fine lines, and sun spots. The technicians harness the multitasking power of concentrated light during laser treatments including spider-vein removal, hair reduction, and photofacials. During each noninvasive procedure, the technician guides a laser beam across the skin to obliterate unwanted veins, spots, and hair without the downtime or pain of surgery.
When Gailen Lundell injured his neck after a high-school wrestling meet, doctors were quick to prescribe medications that temporarily relieved his pain but didn't provide a long-term solution. Luckily, Gailen found one on his own—a chiropractic adjustment. More than 40 years later, Gailen, better known as Dr. Lundell, is a chiropractor himself and the founder of Lundell Chiropractic, where he works side by side with his son, Dr. Kevin Lundell.
Together, the chiropractic duo strives to correct all problems stemming from the spine. Visits begin with a thorough consultation and exam, before either of the Doctors Lundell report their findings and map out a treatment plan. Depending on the patient, the doctor may prescribe a chiropractic adjustment, a visit with the onsite massage therapist, or a strict ban on reenacting the myth of Sisyphus.
