Board-certified chiropractic physician Dr. Naveed Elahi takes a multidisciplinary approach to pain relief, disease prevention, and whole-body health at Health First Wellness Center. The practice specializes in chiropractic medicine, a science that aims to alleviate such common conditions as headaches and neck pain without the use of drugs, surgery, or noogies. In cases where traditional chiropractic medicine does not apply, the doctor rounds out the treatment menu with acupuncture and clinical massage therapy, two ancient modalities that can reduce anxiety and improve sleep. Furthermore, personal training and nutrition counseling help patients ward off the specter of disease in a more reliable manner than hanging garlic cloves on their treadmills. In addition to MedSpa services including laser hair removal and VelaShape body smoothing and contouring, Health First Wellness Center also offers yoga, Zumba, and Pilates classes.
Dr. Cress—specializing in sports medicine, migraines, headaches, and chronic pain—and Dr. Karm—specializing in women's health, nutrition, and pediatrics—help keep bodies healthy without drugs or surgery. In addition to chiropractic and acupuncture services, Active Care Chiropractic & Rehabilitation offers other health-focused services such as physical therapy, nutrition counseling, custom-fit orthotics, and Myofascial release therapy. Specialty programs include a corporate-wellness program featuring massages and lectures on health, as well as weight management programs that help patients eat right and lose weight. They also operate the Music and Fine Arts Clinic, where Dr. Karm’s lifelong musicianship helps her tackle the unique stresses and strains that plague artists and musicians.
M.E. Laser and Beauty's certified technicians brandish ultramodern technology and old-fashioned techniques to noninvasively smooth, brighten, and exfoliate skin. When they're not restoring the youthful glow to careworn surfaces, they also harness the power of their IPL lasers to remove unwanted hair from all areas of the body without the need for waxing or razors. In addition to their namesake laser treatments, they also soothe careworn faces with restorative facials and untangle knotted muscles with expert massage techniques.
Salon 117 & Essence Day Spa treats tender outer layers to the touch-ups and rubdowns they so earnestly crave. The combo massage rubs out tension in a session that alternates between gentle Swedish strokes and diligent deep-tissue techniques.
Pink Nails Spa features beauty professionals who provide an array of services with a focus on organic ingredients including citrus-infused oils and healing antioxidants for fingers and toes. The Creative Spa manicure uses citric acid to exfoliate hands and diminish signs of aging. Other pedicures come infused with honey or chocolate to soothe weary feet and boost the mood of depressed noses. While nails get a lot of attention at the spa, clients can also opt for massage services and waxing.
The staff at Satori Massage Spa harnesses the powers of unique muscle-mending techniques and massage styles to knead away stress and chronic body aches. The Swedish massage incorporates a systematic series of gentle strokes, circular pressure, Morse-code tapping, and straight-faced tickling performed by an experienced therapist, resulting in increased blood circulation and relaxation. The deep-tissue massage uses focused strokes to knead across muscle grains and break up knots dwelling in skin and connective tissue, releasing chronic tension developed from straining muscles during tissue-box-throwing competitions. Whichever one-hour session clients choose, they can let their muscles unwind and endorphins release as skilled hands precisely rub bodies and put on shadow-puppet shows.
