Since graduating from New York Chiropractic College in the mid 1980s, doctor of chiropractic Peter G. Hill developed an itch for understanding and treating automotive- and sports-related injuries. To scratch it, he attends conferences and forums on concussions, which are typically less conspicuous than other injuries such as a whiplashed neck or deflated ego. Alongside injury recovery, Dr. Hill addresses all kinds of aches and pains with adjustments, muscle work, physical therapies, and nutritional counseling.
SpringRain Face & Body Spa combines Ayurveda, traditional European techniques, and modern American skincare solutions. Within a soothing, low-lit spa, staffers administer massage therapies of every kind—deep-tissue, Swedish, shiatsu, reiki—age-defying body wraps, and mani-pedis that help hands and feet recover after their daily dose of punching through walls and kicking down doors. Most treatments infuse bodies with organic herbs and essential oils, which in turn infuse the mind with a sense of well-being and relaxation.
Beautifica Day Spa's expert aestheticians rejuvenate visages with gentle microdermabrasion treatments, which use organic, plant-based products housed in eco-friendly packaging. During the 45-minute face-pampering process, a licensed skinsmith exfoliates away tired cells and clingy exes with a spray of fine crystals, returning a healthy glow to faces. Microdermabrasion can help to erase hyperpigmentation, smooth bumpy facial roads, and fade fine lines and scars. Cozy treatment rooms draped in neutral hues and soft linens embrace bodies in a blanket of calm, freeing clients from outer-world stressors such as demanding bosses and bad dreams where they have to fill out W-2 forms in crayon.

In addition to traditional spa services such as facials and waxes, the spa treats skin irregularities such as cholesterol deposits and skin tags with noninvasive Lamprobe treatments.

This form of massage employs light touch to redirect energy, ridding clients of stress and anxiety, much like a trained falcon rids people of their toupees.
At Visions HealthCare, a team of doctors and practitioners focuses on health’s fundamentals, taking into account each patient's environment and lifestyle to root out the causes of ailments during acupuncture, nutrition consultations, and other treatments. Functional medicine emphasizes preventative care by identifying the causes of physiological and biochemical disturbances that negatively impact health, and stress-reduction programs counteract the damage done by backbreaking bosses or back-talking pets. Acupuncturists draw upon the ancient practice's tenets to free up energy flow, thereby helping to allay migraines, uro-genital conditions, and allergies. Chiropractic treatments address the biomechanics of each section of the spine, aligning the vertebrae with manual adjustments and supporting the joints with soft-tissue or myofascial treatments. Visions HealthCare rounds out its whole-health focus during spiritual alignment sessions that bolster clients' peace of mind and reduce their tendency to mispronounce chakra.
During foot-reflexology sessions, a member of the Tri Zen Massage & Reflexology staff presses thumbs and fingers into specific foot points, triggering relief from pain and stress. This treatment also ramps up sub-ankle blood flow and helps drooping arches perk up like dogs hearing the high-pitched whistle of their favorite teakettle. Swedish massages unclench stiff musculature, aid healing, and foster uninterrupted slumber with a blend of five techniques ranging between flowing strokes and swift raps. Alternatively, soothing fingers work their way into tucked-away tissues during deep-tissue massages, applying intense pressure that translates into decreased tension and an increased chance you’ll be able to tie yourself into a pretzel. Deep-tissue techniques can also help to unfurl chronic kinks and assuage postural imperfections, mobility problems, and sports injuries.
