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.
hough it was developed more than 1,000 years ago in India, threading has found a modern niche due to its eco-friendly reputation and gentle treatment of sensitive skin. Practicing this method for the last 24 years, the trained threaders at Eyebrow MakeOver use a three-step technique to ensure brows flatter each client’s face shape and default emotion. Technicians start by outlining a desired shape for patron approval, then use a thin cotton thread to capture stray hairs at the root, yielding results that are more precise than with waxing and less likely to produce ingrown hairs. Technicians then train their clients in the use of eyebrow products, so brows continue to look full and even between threadings.
After the passing of someone very dear to her, Kasia became determined to live her life to its fullest. To her, that meant helping others to also do the same. So she opened Ree Day Spa, a place where her clients can relax and take time out for themselves, helping them prepare to seize the day. As Kasia says, "What brings me happiness is being able to support people in their personal health and fitness goals."
To do so, she and her team of aestheticians and massage therapists offer both wellness and pampering services under one roof. They soothe clients with treatments such as the Luminous facial, which leaves skin as radiant as a newborn glow worm, and tension-relieving deep-tissue massages with oil. Their sauna also eases aches and detoxes systems, and their standup UV therapy unit works to clear up skin conditions such as blemishes. To balance both body and mind, they also lead yoga and meditation classes.
The team of doctors at Lifetime Health and Wellness Clinic knows that sometimes the backbone falls short of its duty to protect the spinal cord. An abrupt jar from a car or limbo accident can cause one of the segments to shift and impinge on delicate nerve material. When that happens, the team is ready to correct injuries with nonsurgical procedures.
In addition to traditional chiropractic adjustments, the health experts relieve pain using laser therapy, which reduces inflammation and accelerates wound healing. Another option is ultrasound therapy, which eases joint and muscle pain with high-energy sound waves, as well as natural pain-relieving injections. If neither of those treatments are right for the job, electrical impulses can be sent into certain parts of the body to block pain signals.
The clinic also tends to overall wellness with blood tests, internal medicine care, and weight-loss programs that teach clients how to eat healthy and extract all the carbs from bread.
Patrons of Your New Image relax and rejuvenate with soothing massage therapies and medically advanced beauty treatments applied by a cadre of registered nurses, massage therapists, and aestheticians. Ideal for treating superficial skin conditions such as fine lines, acne, and dull skin, a microdermabrasion treatment applies a pumice of microcrystals to gently scrub away dead skin cells and prep the face for the absorption of valuable minerals and stray compliments. The follow-up mini facial sees a dermal specialist further enhance clock-rewinding with a personalized cocktail of skincare products to cleanse and hydrate the skin. A one-hour Swedish massage applies broad, sweeping strokes to stress-occupied muscles, reducing soreness and pain and sending tensions scattering like a rubber-band ball with a cherry-bomb center.
A physician-supervised wellness and weight-loss center, Complete Clinics blends contemporary technology and personalized care to help clients work toward beauty and health goals. The Cyclic Variations in Altitude Conditioning treatments are designed to simulate changes in altitude, triggering the body’s natural responses such as an increase in red-blood-cell and hemoglobin count and a desire to peruse the latest copy of SkyMall. Clients are seated in pods, which adjust pressure, temperature, and oxygen levels up to 300 times during each 20-minute session, mimicking the atmospheric effects of running up and down a mountain hundreds of times. While seated in the pod, clients are free to sleep, text, read, or live out space-cadet fantasies, all while communicating with the outside world via walkie-talkie. The treatment is valuable for high-altitude training, but may also offer auxiliary health benefits such as improved stamina, accelerated weight loss, and reduced inflammation.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Dimitry Likterev, the staff at myAbsoluteBody harnesses FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. Low-light lasers break down adipose tissue, releasing disintegrated lipids into the body where they can then be absorbed by the lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time. Patients can boost results with healthy eating habits, daily exercise, and regular hydration. Like sumo-wrestling costumes, caffeine and alcohol decrease the procedure’s potency.
