A plump Buddha statue stands guard near the entrance of Chakras Healing and Day Spa. Along with Persian rugs and earth-toned walls, he's part of the award-winning spa's decorative strategy meant to ease clients' minds. Client peace of mind is one of the highest priorities of Chakras' staff, which is composed entirely of veteran providers. They believe Chakras' exclusive use of high-end products and reliably comfortable ambiance are the two chief factors that attract clientele. For example, while treatment rooms at some other spas have sterile, clinical-looking furnishings or are haunted by ghosts, Chakras' treatment rooms sport hardwood floors, ornate wall hangings and drapes, and soft lighting.
Chakras Healing and Day Spa also offers a large array of spa services including manicures and pedicures, massage treatments, facials, and body wraps. Those looking to combine treatments may opt for one of the spa packages.
Affordable Lipo Sacramento is helmed by naturopathic physician and chiropractor Barry Wachs, who has been practicing holistic and alternative treatments for 45 years and whose detoxing services have been profiled in Style magazine. Within The Sunrise Holistic Collective’s hygienic facilities, Wachs wields the noninvasive lipo-laser machine to target areas of fat. The device's low-level, non-thermal laser light is designed to break down the fat cells’ walls, causing them to release their fatty fluids and liquefied joie de vivre for later ousting by the lymphatic system.
Three accomplished naturopathic doctors lead the team at Human Reconstruction, combining their knowledge of both conventional and alternative medicine to treat their patients. This multidisciplinary approach has enabled them to create a diverse palette of individualized medical services, including natural face-lifts that use the patient's blood to ease wrinkles and infertility treatments. Dr. Heather Wdowin-Weitman pairs her extensive education with her personal experience in sports medicine—she's circumnavigated the globe with only a backpack and a tiny animal guide, sailed the Nile, and hiked the Grand Canyon on nine occasions, and her current clients include active athletes in the NFL and UFC.
The stylists at Belle Epoque Hair Styling strive to exceed the expectations of their customers with each and every haircut, coloring treatment, and styling service they perform.

Nelson Recinos wasn’t born a martial-arts master. In fact, his first experience with fighting was surviving on the streets of a war-plagued El Salvador. Once he escaped his situation, Recinos honed his skills with a six-year tenure in Thailand, where he learned muay thai from local masters. Eventually he came to the states to compete as a professional prizefighter, winning 129 bouts and losing only 1.
Now he brings his lifetime of expertise to students at Recinos Muay Thai Bootcamp—an 8,000-square-foot facility. Recinos teaches muay thai and boxing, both of which he’s competed in. Sean Tribble, a purple belt in Brazilian jujitsu, assists by teaching his grappling art. Personal trainer Amanda Staudinger rounds out clients' training regimens with a cardio and conditioning class designed to get participants in fighting shape, with strong limbs, a powerful core, and hands replaced with bricks.
