On the Side Day Spa pampers its clients with natural products and holistic spa and nail services in a peaceful, serene environment. Masterful muscle-workers revive worn-out bodies during a one-hour mojito hot-towel massage. The experienced, licensed therapists gently stretch overtaxed muscles and joints to relieve pain in trouble spots before mummifying clients in minty-lime-scented towels. Tired, achy lower limbs can opt for a rejuvenating foot treatment and pedicure. A trained nail tech sloughs off dry skin with a brown-sugar-coconut scrub, slathers on a pineapple-papaya mask, and finishes with a coconut-pineapple massage. After a hot-towel wrap, lazy legs will be energized and ready to take on another day of work carrying their owner. Polished piggies can step out confidently in flip-flops to show off bright coats of chartreuse tangerine or vermillion pink.
Maria De Santis, permanent-makeup specialist and founder of A Face Forever, LLC, seizes every opportunity to further her knowledge in the field of micropigmentation. Though she currently holds 15 advanced industry certifications, she continues to enroll in education programs and study emerging procedures. She imbues lips with rosy color, touches up eyebrows with hair-like brushstrokes, and reconstructs features that have undergone damage from surgery or injury. Because of her extensive knowledge, warm bedside manner, and ability to stay inside the lines of coloring books while blindfolded, local doctors, including Mitchell Chasin, Mark Granick, Suzanne Offen, Andrea Strauss, and Duncan Burnett refer their patients to Maria.
Each massage at U Relax - Westfield may focus on a different need or goal. For example, some focus on relieving stress in the back and shoulders, while others aim to improve overall circulation and bring feelings of well-being throughout the body. But they all have one thing in common: each incorporates ancient acupressure techniques designed to restore balance to the body's internal energies and promote overall health. Using their palms, knuckles, knees, and even their feet, U Relax's therapists apply pressure to specific meridians on the body, helping to relieve tension and soreness, increase energy levels, and promote healing from injuries.
Donna Schmidt, a registered nurse certified by the International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy and Cleansing Waters' resident colon-cleansing guru, refreshes the body's trash compactor using the Angel of Water system, an FDA-approved treatment. During the approximately 35-minute session, a sterile nozzle dispenses gravity-fed 100-degree water to foster the repeated evacuation of toxins and waste more effectively than shouting at the stomach through a megaphone. Patients recline comfortably in the private, sanitary treatment room as the irrigation process breaks up colon clogs during a treatment said to be both soundless and odorless, and the certified practitioner monitors the entire session to ensure a safe, comfortable clearing. Unlike a traditional enema, hydrotherapy can brush up the entire length of the colon with minimal discomfort or pain, and clients can confidently return to work, school, or tuba practice almost immediately after treatment.
