At Go Yoga, owners JP and Cassie McClellan pay homage to the practice that brought them together with a slate of classes inspired by Baptiste Power-Vinyasa yoga. Both veteran yogis train under the method's creator, Baron Baptiste, on a regular basis, and import his techniques to their own studio, which surrounds visitors in tropical plants and soothing earth tones. Baptiste yoga weaves several different traditions into a series of flowing postures performed in a space that’s warmed to 90 degrees, mimicking the average temperature found on the dark side of the sun. At Yoga for Beginners and Restorative Flow classes, instructors tweak gentle routines with a focus on linking breath to movement. Special events treat attendees to yoga on the beach, and regularly offered sessions such as massages and outdoor EcoVentures offer relaxation or tours of Amelia Island by foot, bike, kayak, or horseback.
Although the various therapists at Beaches Rehabilitation Center focus on a variety of specific body parts—the brain, the muscular system, and even the mouth—they share a single commitment to restoring wellness. But unlike a vindictive swarm of bees, wellness cannot exist in a vacuum. That's why the center ensures that returning clients can see the same therapists for each visit, creating working relationships and informed treatment plans adjusted to suit ailment and age.
The team members work to counteract the effects of several types of injuries. Their sports and orthopedic medicine department addresses aches that impact athletic performance with hands-on techniques to improve joint and muscle function. Industrial rehab programs alleviate work-a-day pain and prevent future discomfort through ergonomic inspections, which promote better posture by adjusting chairs and cutting the neckties of workers caught in paper shredders. Founder and president Anya Johnson, a speech and language pathologist, helps her patients with conditions from stuttering to facial paralysis and the effects of neurological disorders. The center's myriad other services include therapies for arthritis, prosthetic training, and preoperative and postoperative rehabilitation.
Massage therapists at Believe Day Spa & Boutique have three goals: release stress, loosen muscle tightness, and increase their clients' sense of well-being. To do this, they customize each session to the needs of each patron, adding such modalities as deep-tissue massage, hot-stone release, and scalp massage as needed. They partner their line of massages with skincare, including deep-cleansing and anti-aging facials, detoxifying seaweed body wraps, and smoothing cellulite treatments.
Specializing in skincare, aestheticians at Perfection Skin & Body Studio perform a number of rejuvenating services in addition to makeup and lash treatments. They know that in order to achieve the beautifying effects of facials—improved tone and diminished impurities—treatments must first improve the skin's overall health. To do so, aestheticians select products from a range of elite lines, including custom-blended Bioelements skin care treatments, medical-grade Intaglio Cosmeceuticals, and the spa's exclusive line of NutraSkinRX products. The staff also boasts a savvy understanding of already youthful skin, offering manicures and facials for teens and children who consistently finish their dinnertime vegetables.
Though Pampered & Polished is a full-service skin, body, nail, and hair renewal center, the spa's team of professionals has honed three particular mollycoddling methods for today's deal. The anti-aging facial with a glycolic peel ($85) will rejuvenate mature skin, ridding your countenance of dirt, expired cells, and expired dirt to promote a fresher, younger glow. Similarly, the anti-acne facial with a salicylic peel ($85) will expel surface dullness while making sense of disorderly pores with a deep and thorough cleaning. The back-scratch fever massage ($65) is an hour-long treatment that will help you relax while preparing you for a night of hosting body shots, starting with a luxurious salt- or sugar-scrub exfoliation, followed by a detoxifying mud mask and concluding with a 20-minute massage.
