Superior Body Works houses an experienced staff of massage therapists, each one certified, licensed, and insured to ease tension, alleviate pain, and improve circulation. Each therapist utilizes a blend of motions to root out stiffness with the appropriate modality, from deep, targeted pressure to flowing, surface-level strokes. Inside private rooms, clients disrobe to their comfort level before climbing atop a plush treatment bed and shrouding themselves in a clean sheet or towel. Soft music trickles from a speaker as the therapist soothes rigid muscles on backs, arms, legs, and airbrushed T-shirts. Light oil or lotions swaddle the skin during treatment to hydrate the skin and prevent friction while hands glide over the surface.
Golden hues pervade the color scheme at All Inclusive Day Spa, where aestheticians quench epidermises with six kinds of facials that use seaweed, alpha-hydroxy acid, and other naturally derived skin scrubbers. Each of the spa's three packages strings together a back-to-back-to-back facial, massage, and mani-pedi combo so that guests can retreat from the stress of bosses demanding reports and dogs demanding reading lessons. Strands revel in the spa's hair services, trying on different shades courtesy of face-framing highlights and making nice with thick new microlink extension pals.
The Cleansing Center is a holistic haven where disease prevention and healthy lifestyle habits are the main focus. Before beginning any treatment, the health providers employ an informative new-patient assessment to help them understand the patient’s medical history and current health issues as well as their emotional and spiritual state. From there, they are able to construct a customized plan that focuses on treating the root of the problem rather than the symptoms. Colon hydrotherapy harnesses the toxin-flushing power of the LIBBE Open System, which sends a gentle stream of water into the lower intestine to purge it of impurities. The Cleansing Center also provides nutrition and exercise counseling, spiritual guidance, and lab work when necessary.
Instead of offering quick beauty pick-me-ups, the staff at Premier Day Spa takes the long view—in this day and age, people are living longer than ever, which means that anti-aging skincare is more essential than it's ever been. To that end, the spa calls on imported skincare formulas from Guinot-Paris in facial treatments that take a proactive approach to halting the signs of aging rather than making up for them by wearing pigtails constantly. One such service is the Hydradermie Lift, which uses galvanic current to exercise facial muscles and help rejuvenate sagging features. Of course, Premier Day Spa focuses on more than just aesthetic results—clients can release tension and center their minds with more than a dozen massage styles that range from classic Swedish strokes to Asian specialties such as shiatsu and reflexology. The spa experts also perform detoxifying body treatments, refine digits with mani-pedis, and enhance faces with lash extensions and permanent makeup.
After graduating from The National College of Chiropractic licensed Doctor of Chiropractic Stephen Becker interned at a general health center in Chicago. During the stint, he received hands-on training in the fields of orthopedics and neurology, among others. That experience has influenced his chiropractic care at Becker Spine and Sports Institute, where he treats back pain, sciatica nerves, and herniated disks. His techniques include spinal-decompression therapy, the Graston Technique, and the Cox Technic flexion-distraction technique. He advocates holistic treatments as well, such as massage therapy and acupuncture.
A glowing complexion, a smooth bikini line, a relaxed mind. The beauticians and massage therapists at DaySpa Millburn seek to cultivate all of these and more. Their massages include relaxing western styles as well as the traditional Chinese practices of reflexology and Tui-Na, designed to stimulate energy flow around key points of the body. Prior to performing one of their myriad facials, aestheticians identify clients' problem areas in complimentary consultations. From there, they allow guests to choose a facial that addresses specific needs or a blended package of inventive facials, including an organic one, a collagen facial, and microdermabrasion. DaySpa Millburn offers 14 facials, enough for the entire New York Jets offense and three linebackers to get unique facials together.
