Our feet help us accomplish vital daily tasks such as flossing, wearing flip-flops, and massaging peanuts until they let out their butters. Primp your peanut tenderizers with today's Groupon: for $25, you get the Just for Feet Treatment at Essential Wellness (a $65 value). The Just for Feet treatment includes reflexology, detox, and aromatherapy.
The Just for Feet treatment begins with a 30-minute reflexology session, an ancient massage that targets pressure points on the feet that correspond with parts of the body. One of Essential Wellness' skilled therapists will stretch and knead your feet in a way that annihilates your troubles, be they pain, soreness, or chilly blood. During the ion therapy treatment that follows, you'll recline in a squishy chair and submerge your feet in warm, soothing ionized water. This ion bath uses a field of non-invasive electromagnetic energy to draw out cellular-level toxins and pollutants, increasing immune function and improving overall wellness. Each individual ion is trained to enter your body imperceptibly, knock on the door of each and every cell, ask if it's had any problems, kick down the door when it receives no reply, and drag out the noxious nasty. After your soul sack has been drained of toxins, feet will be misted with a refreshing peppermint spray.
Essential Wellness is a welcoming temple of relaxation, with warm earthy tones on the walls, inspirational artwork, and plenty of natural light that doesn't smell like blueberry jam. The staff members are as warm as the décor; they're compassionate professionals who are dedicated to helping people live a better life in mind and body. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.
Holistic Family Practice
A holistic health-care facility that unites a team of alternative practitioners under one roof, Holistic Family Practice strives to relieve patients of their ailments using an approach that centers on the cause of symptoms instead of the symptoms themselves. For example, when discussing the treatment of depression, instead of prescribing traditional solutions, such as antidepressants or bank vaults filled with bubble wrap, Holistic Family Practice' owner rattles off a litany of alternative therapies, including constipation relief, positive thinking, meditation, exercise, and probiotics. The staff helps heal patients with comprehensive natural medical care that can include naturopathy as well as wellness classes, health programs, and detoxification services that can stabilize immune systems. The team also deals with nutrient deficiencies and works with patients who suffer from hormonal imbalances, digestive disorders, adrenal fatigue, and more, Shades of turquoise fill treatment rooms with a color meant to awaken clients' confidence, and framed affirmations such as "I love myself" and "Those water-park guards will never stop me" inspire people to look inward for healing strength.
