Balancing Energy Health & Yoga Center
1444 Oak Lawn Ave., Ste. 319, Design District
Lisa Breitenwischer opened her yoga studio in 2012. There, she teaches highly individualized classes and runs a program of personalized holistic treatments and nutritional counseling. Among the treatments available at her intimate studio is a new IR sauna, which is as gratifying before or after a yoga class as it is affordable.
Dr. Martin Kassir
8335 Walnut Hill Ln., Vickery Meadow
This is a real-deal dermatologist office that just happens to offer cosmetic procedures. This means that Dr. Kassir and his staff are pros at pinpointing and treating skin-related ailments while also offering patients some pretty intense anti-aging treatments: traditional, extraction-focused facials, microdermabrasion, and DermaFrac (sounds scary, but it’s actually a supper effective). You can expect some downtime after most treatments, but it's kind of worth it considering the results are no joke.
2410 Victory Park Lane, Design District
Dallas friends swear they've experienced the best facials of their lives at the hands of Joanna Czech, who incorporates LED therapy into her treatments. After studying biology in Poland, she made a name for herself sculpting and rejuvenating some of the most famous faces in NYC before setting up shop in Dallas in 2012. In fact, she still makes it out to NYC's Paul Labrecque Spa on the regular to treat her East Coast clients.
Rosewood Crescent Hotel Spa
400 Crescent Ct., Uptown
This sprawling spa complex operates out of the Rosewood Crescent Hotel, so tasteful luxury is a given. With that in mind, a full day is well-spent here: They offer private yoga and pilates classes, a health-centric café, and treatments that range from the basic (manis and pedis) to the intense (hard-core lymphatic draining treatments). We especially love that the spa is open to kids, with a full menu of kid-friendly treatments (and snacks in the café).
Somatique Medical + Dental Spa
5600 W. Lovers Ln., Park Cities
As the name suggests, this place takes a pretty hardcore, comprehensive approach to beauty (the office is staffed with plastic surgeons and cosmetic dentists). In fact, clients credit the owners, Donald and Beverly Breshers, with introducing the med-spa concept to Dallas some 20 years ago and continue to rely on them for consistently introducing treatments. While you can come here for all manner of cosmetic procedures, less-invasive options, like full-body endermologie and peels, are also on offer.
1020 Raiford Rd., Carrollton
This mini chain of mega spas offer something called Sauna Valley: You'll find every conceivable temple—gold, Himalayan Salt, infrared, far infrared, color therapy—and an equal number of pools to match. The Texas outpost is open 24-hours-a-day, while the Queens location is open from 6am to midnight, making this a fun pilgrimage (and a good girls activity). There's an on-site cafeteria, and even a kiddie pool.
The Spa at the Joule
1530 Main St., Downtown
The sleek subterranean spa beneath the The Joule hotel offers both traditional and experimental spa treatments in a relaxing environment. Many of the facials use Tata Harper products; body treatments include Swedish massage, cupping therapy, and Thai table massage; and there are brow treatments from threading to microblading by local brow expert Rula Sharkawi. There’s a steam room with a giant amethyst shining in the corner (thought to encourage tranquility), sauna, shower, and the Vitality Pool, a body-temperature pool with jets that gently massage the skin, encouraging circulation and lymphatic drainage. Book a 50 minute or longer service and get a free spin, kickboxing, or yoga class at the neighboring Vital Fitness Studio.
