The path to wellness is multidimensional, something the team behind Shine Holistic Wellness Center knows well. The Jacksonville Spot is home to a group of wellness studios, which offer a comprehensive selection of services performed by integrative health practitioners. Read on to learn about a few.
Blue Lotus Acupuncture: The clinic’s acupuncture physicians customize treatment programs to help clients feel as healthy, happy, and balanced as possible. To augment this ancient healing practice, Blue Lotus also utilizes modalities such as moxibustion, cupping, and tuina.
Skin Spa: Helmed by clinical aesthetician Casey Himes, Skin Spa tends to complexions with specialized skincare treatments, including deeply exfoliating Image Skincare peels and Repêchage’s widely praised four-layer facial. Casey’s other specialties include ECHO2Plus pure-oxygen facials, nourishing vitamin C therapies, and deep-cleansing acne facials.
ThisChick’s Kitchen: ThisChick’s Kitchen focuses on healthy eating with a menu of delicious prepared meals, such as succulent salmon burgers, Mexican-inspired quiche, and housemade kombucha. Chef Rosaria Anderson works closely with area farmers and heads up the kitchen, where she uses local, seasonal ingredients to craft a diverse selection of delicious dishes.
The center also offers a host of wellness treatments outside of these five studios. These services come in the form of body wraps, infrared-sauna sessions, and laser hair-removal treatments. Although all its body wraps work to remove toxins from the body, each one is targeted toward a more specific goal, such as reducing cellulite or promoting relaxation. Infrared sauna sessions are similarly detoxifying, using dry infrared heat to increase circulation and lymphatic flow.
Elsewhere, Dr. Konika Patel Schallen, a physician with more than two decades of experience, employs laser light to remove unwanted hair across the face and body.
When Giovanni and Diana Manzano founded Solé Spa Wellness Center in 2007, they chose to focus on services that rejuvenated their clients physically as well as emotionally. They also chose to honor Giovanni's mother—Solé Manzano, a victim of breast cancer—by gracing the spa with her name. The haven of relaxation they've built blends contemporary touches with Asian-themed décor. Instead of relying on a throng of fireflies, the studio creates a warm atmosphere by filling rooms with earthy tones and the calming glow emanating from hanging lights.
Although waxing is their specialty, the aestheticians' body treatments—including a full-body sugar glow with imported sugar cane, tropical nut oils, and fruit enzymes—also helped to earn the spa a place on Jacksonville Magazine's Best of Jacksonville list in 2011, 2012, as well as best day spa of 2013 by Void Magazine. Manually applied airbrush tans imbue skin with a rich, sun-kissed hue that can last as long as seven days, much like a citywide game of hide-and-seek. Facials similarly make skin glow by slathering cheekbones with vitamin-rich salves or seaweed masks. During massages, therapists can employ a number of modalities, customizing every treatment to address clients' needs with a combination of Swedish, deep tissue, or reflexology techniques.
A lobby decked out with leather chairs, stained wood, tiles, and flowers greets visitors to Massage Bliss & Day Spa, preparing them for a spa visit that melts away the stress and responsibilities of the modern workday. Soft, low lights and gauzy curtains hang over heated massage beds, and two candlelit couples-massage suites surround pairs in a sensual glow during romantic anniversaries or ill-advised first dates. Deep-cleaning facials flush out clogged pores and stimulate blood flow with natural ingredients, such as apple pulp and flaxseed, and aromatic salts and coconut oils soothe digits during spa mani-pedis. The day spa's arsenal of sophisticated technologies beautifies and rejuvenates bodies, with its infrared sauna detoxifying and purifying skin and its TriActive laser smoothing out dimpling and cellulite.

Picasso Day Spa & Salon takes its name from salon founder David Manaute's favorite artist. In many ways, the stylists channel the painting paragon by treating their clients as though they were canvases, using haircuts, color, waxing, and airbrush tanning to achieve an artistic personal aesthetic. The team makes its process collaborative, though, soliciting input from clients when coming up with a style, unlike Picasso—he pretended not to hear the things his canvases said. Their services take place in a building as equally beautiful as the custom looks they craft for clients. The spa's decor showcases a European atmosphere, and reproductions of Picasso's artwork hang on the walls.
Under the guidance of Dr. John Morello and Sherri Frith, P.A - C., Mana Medical Spa's skincare specialists help patients "enhance their Mana," or essence, with wrinkle- and stress-reducing treatments.
