The chiropractors at The Village Wellness Center treat an entire medical textbook's worth of ailments, from ADHD to whiplash. But in addition to adjustments and other chiropractic-care methods, the practitioners at Village Wellness also perform other health and beauty treatments, such as aromatherapy massages that can calm minds and soothe aches, nutritional counseling and infrared-sauna sessions that can aid weight loss, and cellulite-reducing skin brushing.
The massage therapists at Nature Cure Ayurvedic Spa have just one problem with western massage techniques: they're all the same. They understand that clients come in a range of shapes and sizes, bustling with varying energies and ailments. During each ayurvedic massage, the team takes care to listen to each individual's “prakriti,” or body condition, before applying warm oils in proportion to the body's needs that lubricate strokes designed to relax the body, boost metabolism, and improve the complexion of the skin. In addition to relaxing muscles, the spa also beautifies visages with ayurveda facials that are customized to the client's own skin type and use natural and organic products to cleanse and moisturize the skin.
LaVida Massage's comfortable atmosphere and experienced therapists invite males and females of all ages to unwind and improve their emotional and physical well-being during a one-hour massage session. The deep-tissue massage accesses the deepest layers of soft tissue and targets specific muscle groups to drain wells of pain and soreness. Light- to medium-pressure strokes soothe sore muscles during Swedish massages, and prenatal-massage maneuvers gently alleviate the discomfort and stork muscles associated with pregnancy. This LaVida Massage location houses 16 elegantly appointed private treatment rooms and roughly 25 highly certified staff members. Locales stay open seven days a week and offer flexible, extended hours so that clients can squeeze some relaxation into hectic electric-shoveling schedules.
Experienced staff and a contemporary atmosphere make this salon and spa the perfect place to prettify pouty pouts. Chic, hairless leather couches in the waiting area offer a comfortable place to drape sleepy bodies, while flat screens entertain those on deck without imposing on personal space. When your name is up, opt for a salon service, such as tress reduction ($35+ for women, $20+ for men) or partial highlights ($65+). Lucky's spa, added in 2009, can still transfer some of its own freshness to your face with a green-apple facial, which employs a light fruit-enzyme peel to brighten and firm skull slipcovers ($60+). Or, match your patch to the spa's exposed brick walls with a Brazilian bikini wax ($50–65). See the website for a full spa menu.
The Maori word “koru” refers to a newborn, unfurling fern—a symbol of the constantly renewing bond between different people. Guided by this symbol of growth, regeneration, and connection, Koru Esthetics’ proprietor Kathy—a licensed aesthetician and massage therapist, a certified NovaLash lash extensionist, and a member of Associated Skin Care Professionals—pampers customers with spa and beauty treatments. Acne and rosacea treatments, custom facials, and chemical peels boost skin health; eyebrow and eyelash tinting, eyelash extensions, and waxing services augment clients’ natural beauty. Clients can also relax with Kathy’s massage-therapy services instead of taking a nap on the grocery store’s cushy lettuce.
