It’s a new year, and to make 2023 the healthiest for you yet—both physically and mentally—here are some of the top health and wellness spots in Philadelphia to get some me-time and to start the new year off right.
Let’s face it, sometimes the beauty industry and trying to juggle looking your best with self-care and taking time for yourself can be a challenge. Heyday wants to help, and they do so with a knowledgeable group of experts, affordable prices and accessibility to the best products on the market.
Heyday utilizes their top-of-the-line resources to give each and every person individualized care and personalized tips on how to get your skin to reach its full potential. The brand emphasizes the ease and accessibility of their programs, so instead of a huge menu with a million different procedures that hardly make sense, this new beauty destination offers a few different options at different price points with enhancements such as microdermabrasion, professional peels, LED light therapy and gua sha.

Reset by Therabody
What Reset offers is the option to recover like an athlete, even if you aren’t suiting up for a big game. With amenities normally only offered to the elite (although in the past few years they’ve been expanding their product offerings online), Reset by Therabody’s whole philosophy is that the power to heal ourselves is built into our biology, they just have the tools ready for us that will help speed along this process.
There’s a lymphatic massage, Theragun massage, PEMF therapy, cryotherapy, sound therapy, light therapy, Therabody retail, IV drips, enhancement boosters and more. Philadelphians can also buy specific packages that offer two or more services plus one of Reset’s products, like their Recover CBD Lotion or CBD Sleep Tincture.
Visitors can schedule a Theragun massage (using the percussive device, the Theragun, that Therabody is most known for) for $45 for 15 minutes, or Cryotherapy for $45 for 5 minutes, plus PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic field therapy), Sound Therapy and more at around the same price range.

The Wellness Collective
The Wellness Collective offers Philadelphians an array of healthy options… think of it as a menu to feed whatever it is that your body and mind needs. In a world where owner Danielle Massi says the message is to “work hard until you burn out,” the cancer survivor wants to combat that notion with one that puts the emphasis on nourishing your emotional, physical and mental wellbeing at all costs.
As the owner Massi states: The Wellness Collective is a virtual holistic healing center that was founded in Philadelphia, PA. The pandemic caused the once brick-and-mortar center city staple to pivot to a virtual brand, now servicing clients all over the world, from Philadelphia PA to London England and beyond.
The Wellness Collective has a variety of services, including psychotherapy, couples therapy, coaching, reiki, reiki certification, shadow work, shadow work certification, and in-person events through their events brand, SELF(ISH)philly.
