When Joanna Mazurek calls relaxation an "art," she knows what she's talking about. The Green Peace Art of Relaxation founder is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, though today she's more likely to be dripping massage oil on a tense back than paint on a canvas. Her massage credentials include certification in the stretching techniques of Thai massage as well as mastery of reiki, an energy-based Eastern healing method.
As an advocate of aromatherapy, Mazurek sells scents made from sage, lavender, and other organic ingredients, which together are meant to relax the muscles and moisturize the skin. That's not to say she's averse to more high-tech methods, though. During face- and body-sculpting sessions, she uses microcurrent electrical impulses to make skin produce more collagen, just as electricity shocked Ben Franklin into producing better screenplays.
The physician-led programs at Club Reduce approach weight loss via two holistic approaches that are informed by science. Comprehensive programs may spring fully grown from the cranium of Zeus or from one-on-one consultations, during which practitioners may send samples of clients’ saliva or hair to the lab for analysis that will reveal hormone imbalances, or they might direct clients to input their diet into a computer system that will highlight vitamin deficiencies. These programs target personal obstacles to slimming down, such as hormone irregularities and sugar dependency, and may be tailored to relieve chronic headaches or allergies or restore health to lackluster skin. The second path sidesteps regimes in favor of three discreet, relaxing treatments that aim to noninvasively jumpstart the metabolism and catalyze natural detoxification processes.
At Artistic Cuts Salon & Spa, a cool blue tile mosaic greets visitors when they approach the desk, scarcely concealing murals of swans and cranes that usher in a feeling of serenity. Beneath hanging lanterns, specialists perform a variety of salon and spa services for men and women. Stylists tame locks with custom haircuts, coloring, perms, and straightening treatments, which can be complemented by other beauty services such as waxing and permanent makeup. Spa technicians also reward bodies with massages, facials, and skin treatments such as microdermabrasion.
Academic Alliance's cadre of doctors and technicians wields both years of experience and an eye for dermal aesthetics to augment each client's natural beauty. Today's offered treatments utilize different modalities to smooth out the face's many rogue wrinkles, using motivated proteins and chemicals to clobber the creases of time. Fifteen units of Botox, injected just below the skin, wipe out lines between brows with minimally uncomfortable ease, smoothly concealing the penalties of protracted frowning contests for up to four months. Alternatively, the Jessner chemical peel exfoliates the deepest clogged pores, purging accumulated microdebris, diminishing age-spot melanin gangs, and reducing fine lines that have been acting out of line.
If your eyes are the windows to your soul, your hair is the tunnel to your mind. Keep your mind-matter from escaping with today's hair-taming Groupon. With today's deal, $40 gets you $100 toward professional hair services at Sophisticated Styles in Palm Harbor. These sophisticated stylists offer cuts for men, women, kids, and clowns. You must use the $100 in one visit, but family members can share one Groupon. This is for appointment only and would cover the annual father and son salon trip, or a honeymoon dedicated to haircuts.
The licensed ligament looseners at It's All About Me raise drooping spirits with a relaxing mind and muscle makeover. Open up body drains and let office worries, crop anxieties, squirrel training troubles, and other daily stressors pour out over the course of a 60-minute Swedish massage. Designed specifically for relaxation, this technique focuses on loosening tight spots and garnering a sense of overall well-being. This session of light-pressure kneading stimulates increased blood circulation and limbers limbs enough to allow for an immaculate back flip into the neighbor's Jell-O pool.
