Saravidas Health & Wellness’ independent practitioners combine their holistic- and natural-healing talents to aid patients in need of relaxation. Licensed mental-health counselors Anne Merrill and Deanne Caron repair frazzled nerves with counseling sessions, and staff from Family Acupuncture & Wellness of Puget Sound bolster clients’ well-being with Chinese herbal remedies and acupuncture treatments. Other members of the cadre of caretakers also treat clients with skin services, massage appointments, infrared-sauna sessions, and body-wrap treatments.
Lady Broussard Skincare nurtures patrons with treatments that blend traditional beauty rituals, such as European facials and microdermabrasion, with holistic therapies, such as stress-busting reflexology. Complimentary refreshments relax clients as beauty professionals revitalize skin with custom masks and exfoliating glycolic peels or christen the body with a pink-champagne scrub before painting on its new nautical name. Products from PCA, Bioelements, and the spa's own proprietary line power many of the skin-focused services, which are complemented by additional aesthetic enhancements, such as mink eyelash extensions and waxing for both face and body.
Serenity Spa and Natural Health Clinic's eco-friendly sanctuary wraps well-worn bodies in relaxing energy with an array of holistic healing treatments. The 60- to 90-minute acupuncture treatment strives to release tension and stress wedged, like squatting trolls, along the body's factory lines of energy. Designed to create a spacious tunnel for the chi (energy) to flow, fine needles are delicately inserted into critical pressure points along the physique, potentially helping to relieve allergies or treat autoimmune diseases and pulmonary disorders. Further bolstering relaxation, the 15- to 20-minute aromatherapy foot and head massage works to invigorate the senses with scented oils, soothing strokes, and an absence of heavy-metal music.
Jewell Day Spa provides a steaming platter of 60-minute thermal body wraps ($120 each) for anyone seeking full-body beautification, skin wellness, or the sensation of being inside a burrito. The Aching Muscles Wrap, a blend of eucalyptus, peppermint, and other herbs, targets pain relief, while an infusion of allspice, lavender, and ginger is available to obliterate impurities. Or opt to hydrate outer layers of parchment with a holistic blend of lavender, chamomile, comfrey, rose, and other non-irritating, moisturizing herbs. The Vortex and “Moor, Moor, Moor” treatments use natural clay and moor mud drawn from Mother Earth's soft underbelly for detoxifying blends. All wraps are performed on a flotation sanctuary table, a soft pack table that creates a heated, weightless environment for increased absorption and thoughts about astronauts.

Laser light is a quick, relatively painless, and effective method for removing unwanted hair. A long-pulse, high-energy laser emits a gentle beam of light that harmlessly passes through the skin and directly targets follicles, effectively treating unwanted hair. Unlike the lasers utilized by popular film hero and 2010 California gubernatorial hopeful Iron Man, these friendly beams are easy, comfortable, and treat hair follicles faster than other methods. The surrounding tissue is unaffected, and there is little to no irritation of the skin. Most areas usually require three to six treatments performed in six- to ten-week intervals to fully rid the dermis of unwelcome fur. Dr. Robert Niedblaski and the certified professionals at the physician-owned-and-operated Laser Hair & Skin Center will strip your lip of unwanted strands ($396 per package; a package is up to five treatments) or whip your bikini line ($796 per package) into two-piece shape just in time for Unusually Casual Friday at the office.
