Natural healing therapies can be an healthy alternative to aggressive medicines and unnecessary surgery, which is the care practiced and embraced by the Source for Wellness staff. This spa-like, integrated health center offers chiropractic services as well as group fitness classes, together helping clients look and feel their best. Chiropractic neck and back adjustments may be the ticket to relieving migraines or chronic pain, and massages and gentle acupuncture treatments help soothe the body and replace the needles you've naturally shed over time. Above all, the experienced practitioners treat each person as a whole, working to get to the root of health problems instead of simply treating the symptoms.
Vara Healing Arts helps clients relax and recuperate from injury or stress in three ways. Their instructors teach several different styles of yoga including ashtanga, hatha flow, and vinyasa; and their classes aim to calm the mind, ease discomfort, and strengthen the body. Licensed massage therapists perform more than two dozen specialty and advanced body treatments from acupuncture and aromatherapy massage to crystal therapy and reflexology. Finally, the relaxation center features eight-person saunas, where raised temperatures can induce sweating that purifies the skin, purges toxins from the body, and exercises lazy sweat glands.
The nail technicians of Solano Nails Spa grant hands and feet the royal treatment with a menu of both traditional and deluxe manicures and pedicures. For an extra dose of relaxation and beautician, their digit-dignifying services sometimes include additional treatments, such as massages, exfoliating scrubs, and skin-smoothing masks. Their shellac manicures keep nails chip-free for up to several weeks, just long enough to convince fingers that time has stopped indefinitely.
Michelle Lynn Battermann draws upon nearly two decades of experience in the fields of holistic medicine, nutrition, and wellness. Those skills come in handy at Thairapeutics, the salon, spa, and health center she?s owned and run since 2003. In her years of researching healing methods from the East and West, she's earned certifications as a massage therapist, a personal trainer, a naturopathic doctor, a nutrition specialist, a barber, and a cosmetologist?and she brings all of these to bear during her work at Thairapeutics. Her clients might include injured athletes, those looking to lose weight, and patrons in need of pain relief. Michelle and her staff tackle the issues at hand with a holistic outlook, addressing physical symptoms as well as mental ones.
While fixing these issues, the team tends to rely on chemical-free plant-based products. Formulas from Eminence Organics augment facials, and Innersense Beauty haircare serums strengthen locks. Thairapeutics also devises 6- to 12-week programs around specific goals or ailments. A nutrition program, for example, covers procedures for improving hair and skin in addition to dietary guidance, and a program for chronic stress blends Eastern massage therapies with focused stretching and breathing exercises.
During its 20 years in business, Meilin Salon & Spa has drawn its share of loyal clients, including one who travels from out of town just for a session in stylist/owner Amy?s chair. Chalk these allegiances up to the artistic stylists, who forego cookie-cutter services for customized treatments that take into account each client?s personal style and favorite shampoo flavor. Then there?s the atmosphere?saffron-colored walls evoke feelings of escape that are only elevated by the smell of organic oils, teas, candles, and all-natural fragrances. And, of course, there are the treatments themselves; haircuts, coloring services, and relaxing scalp massages incorporate all-natural hair care products, while relaxing massages, full body masques, mani-pedis, and facials leave clients feeling pampered from head to toe.
