Solarice Wellness Spas' expert therapists blend Western medical science with techniques forged from traditional Eastern therapies in a range of holistic spa and wellness services. Patients begin their healing journeys by navigating the spa's cobblestone passages and action-figure display cases to arrive at 1 of 12 private treatment rooms. In the one-hour Swedish massage, masseuse's hands recontour backs in a series of long and short strokes, digging in to ease sore muscles and encouraging circulation in shy teen blood cells. A thorough consultation then precedes additional treatment options to determine the effectiveness of one of the three other holistic services on the client's health concerns.
Of the additional holistic therapies offered, client skin submits to the gentle wiles of disposable needles in 30-minute acupuncture sessions as therapists introduce them to specific body points that aim to stimulate flow of chi and of cell-phone signals. Needles set out to open body pathways to correct digestive imbalances and regulate the function of muscles and internal organs to promote natural healing. Therapists may also suction glass or bamboo cups to their patients' skin in cupping sessions, which aid in drawing out toxins and prepping patients for hugs at octopus conventions. Intended to aid muscular-skeletal aches, injection-therapy sessions infuse patients with natural botanical-based injections containing herbs, homeopathics, and vitamins without the strong accents of most foreign plants.
