In addition to experiencing the humiliation of being buried by dogs and dug up by science teachers, skeletons are ornery because they lack the musculature necessary to get massaged. Avoid taking your skin for granted with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a Swedish aromatherapy massage and a 30-minute naturopathic wellness consultation at Essence Naturopathic Organic Medical Spa (a $95 value).
Essence Naturopathic Organic Medical Spa's passionate team of wellness experts, led by Dr. Melissa Younano and Bahar Brumand, heal and soothe agitated bodies with homeopathic medicine and relaxing spa services. In a 30-minute, in-depth naturopathic consultation ($40), patients receive professional guidance concerning health, diet, and acute cases of cooties. Afterwards, an experienced spa therapist pops open a bottle of essential oils such as lavender, vanilla cream, or coconut. World-weary clients can ignore all outside stresses and impending high-stakes pinochle tournaments as soothing strokes soften muscle tension and bodily aches during a one-hour Swedish massage ($55). The spa enlists Hungarian-line ilike Organic Skin Care to do its aromatic bidding with vitamin-rich fruits and vegetables designed to nourish dermal layers and activate senses.
Essence Naturopathic Organic Medical Spa
The second word in Essence Naturopathic Organic Medical Spa refers to the naturopathic doctor who helms the spa’s licensed staff. A holistic practice that informs many of the spa’s treatments, naturopathy is based on the idea that the body can best heal itself with proper food and exercise, rather than with medicines that merely treat each ailment’s symptoms. This is not to say that the spa’s services are not medically informed; the doctor oversees a wide range of herbal-medicine, weight-loss, nutrition, and infertility treatments designed to aid and stimulate the body’s own healing powers. The rest of the staff—comprised of a spa therapist, a laser technician, a makeup artist, and an anthropomorphic terrycloth robe with a penchant for bear hugs—supplements the doctor’s treatments with more traditional spa services, such as organic peels, hot-stone massages, facials, and body wraps.
