The Perfecting Plant Peel™ is a results-oriented treatment and has been proven in clinical testing to perform like a 30% glycolic peel without the associated redness and irritation. The Perfecting Plant Peel™ activating spray and thermal masque refine the skin as an alternative to chemical approaches.


Milk & Honey Waxing

If you prefer an organic approach to hair removal or have sensitive skin, this should be your method of choice. These recipes are based on ancient hair-removal rituals. Because it's all-natural, this wax is more gentle on the skin, and it can be used cold (read: no burning). This sweet recipe also doesn't adhere to the skin—only to hair—so pain is minimized.


Cryo + Sauna (Extreme Contrast Therapy)

The ULTIMATE IN Cold/Hot Therapy!  Start with our Entire Body Cryotherapy Chamber, dropping your skin temperature between 25-40 degrees.  During this treatment your body draws blood to your core to keep you warm, while raising your metabolism rapidly.  When exiting the chamber, ALL of your blood is redistributed throughout your body and forced into areas it may not have flowed before due to injuries, etc. We will then take you to our HyperVibe machine to help the blood continue to pump.  This process promotes quick cellular turnover and speedy recovery.  After 5 minutes, you are placed in the Infrared Sauna where temperatures reach up to 140 degrees and the infrared readers reach deep into the cellular wall.  This treatment lasts 15 minutes.
 Overall, you just burned 1500 calories in under 30 minutes and are on your way to optimal health!


NATURAL Whole Body Cryotherapy (or Spot Cryo)

Our walk-in whole body cooling – vs. [Nitrogen] forced air cooling from feet up in saunas There are no hazardous gases or ventilation concerns with our Natural WHOLE Cryotherapy. Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is exposure to subzero temperatures. Extreme cold stimulates skin sensors, activating a Central Nervous System (CNS) response. This causes the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain inhibitors and mood elevators, while the enhanced circulation activity (blood movement into and out of the core) decreases inflammation by clearing toxins and metabolic waste with a supply of oxygen and nutrient enriched blood to stimulate cellular regeneration (faster healing). Treatments have been adopted by elite athletes and pro teams for muscle and injury recovery. WBC is becoming nationally well documented as being used for the daily management of pain, inflammation, energy, and stress related conditions.

WHAT TO WEAR:
Because of the exposure to extremely cold temperatures, there are mandatory requirements for apparel to be worn in the chamber. You should arrive in or bring the following gym attire: Men recommended: (swimsuit or shorts, T-shirt, socks, and gym shoes). Women recommended: (swimsuit or shorts and top, socks and gym shoes). If you do not have gym shoes or socks, The Laya Center provides Kloggs and socks in various sizes for your use. The Laya Center will also provide a complimentary pair of gloves for your use at the chamber. You will be provided a hat or headband to cover your ears, and a respiratory mask to cover your mouth and nose.  You will have covering for your (fingers, toes, nose & ears) which is simply precautionary. Please avoid wearing jeans, slacks, or other loose fitting clothing as they have a tendency to harden immediately, making walking more difficult. This short duration of exposure would be safe even without the protective apparel. However, we insist that you wear the mandatory cover for your skin and respiratory protection and to maximize the benefits of your experience. You should not exercise or shower prior to the chamber treatment. Any type of body condensation will freeze during exposure. It is recommended that you pat yourself dry with a towel before leaving the locker room, and do not apply lotions, oils, cologne or any alcohol based products prior to treatment.Followed by 10 minutes of light movement in our Technology room! After exiting from the Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) chamber, it is recommended that light cardiovascular movement be performed for a period of up to 10 minutes to further promote re-warming within the muscles which creates a more favorable circulatory effect to bring fresh blood into the muscles and promote the flushing of stagnant blood within the muscle tissue which contributes to muscle swelling and inflammation.

Choose between one of our specialized techniques to purify, balance and renew the body.  Our Pure Relaxation massage incorporates Aromatherapy and Sensory Music with light strokes and a face & scalp massage, while the Stress Fix™ is a mixture of deep tissue massage which can be intense in places, reflexology (focusing on your feet) and Swedish massage to soothe the muscles afterwards. The latter is broad, sweeping movements while deep tissue aims to break up all those stiff muscles.
The treatments are bespoke, so if you feel stress and tension in your neck, your therapist can focus on that, or if it’s your lower back then that will get more attention. Ultimately, any stress points you have, your able therapist will sniff them out and get to work. Other treatments we offer are Lymphatic massage, Muscle Isolation & Reflexology.
