$29 for a Vibration-Therapy Package ($175 Value)
After a health consultation, guests undergo seven, 10-minute sessions of whole-body-vibration therapy. During the session, patients stand on a vibrating platform that causes the muscles to rapidly contract, aiming to tone muscles and burn fat.
Vibrate for Health
Vibration. Once the exclusive domain of earthquakes and cellphones set on quiet mode, this energetic form of motion has found new life in the world of exercise thanks to Vibrate For Health's whole body vibration (WBV) therapy. First designed to combat the atrophying effect of weightlessness on Soviet cosmonauts, WBV combats cellular degeneration with the stimulating power of vigorous movement. After stepping onto a vibrating platform, clients shake away malaise during 10-minute sessions designed to boost cells' ability to absorb nutrients and oxygen while waking up bones, muscles, and the ghost that lives between every person's third and fourth ribs.
Healing Centers of America
Healing Centers of America's wellness experts help bodies heal from injuries and fight chronic pain all without surgery. Chiropractors might determine the source of pain during chiropractic exams, and then perform adjustments to realign vertebrae and take pressure off the disks between them. Massage therapists might manipulate the body's soft tissues to improve mobility during ChiroMassages. These kneadings shun the add-ons associated with traditional spas—aromatherapy oils, models feeding clients morsels of cheese—and focus on rehabilitation. Another popular massage at Healing Centers of America, the HydroMassage, relies on waves and jets of heated water to ease tension and soothe muscles. This hands-free kneading allows clients to remain fully clothed. Or, clients might accelerate their body's natural healing response through whole-body-vibration therapy, which also tones muscles, increases cellular oxygen uptake, and promotes lymphatic drainage.
