Alpha Cleanse's staff work to purify the body using various methods. With colon cleansing they aid in the elimination of waste material from the colon, which can cause a range of ailments, including everything from digestive problems to insomnia. With massage therapy they mollify muscles with strategic strokes, which are designed to aid the body's immune system. They also offer far-infrared sauna sessions, which expel waste material through the skin's pores—a natural process that's in keeping with their all-natural, drug-free services.
The smooth, black basalt traditionally used in hot stone massage has something in common with spa owner Mahealani Trepinski's career: they were both forged in Hawaii. But while these rocks were born in the island chain's famous lava flows, Trepinski had to journey there as an adult for the training that gives her skill set a distinctive Hawaiian flavor.
The island's influence can be felt in a number of A Hawaiian Touch Natural Healing Center and Spa Inc.'s spa treatments, from lomi massages—a Hawaiian practice based on ancient ritual and music—to organic facials and seaweed detox wraps. A well-rounded team of aestheticians and therapists keeps the spa's menu diverse, offering cosmetic services such as waxing alongside a wide array of massage modalities. Trepinski, who is also an Integrative Nutrition health coach, even teaches other professionals how to perform reflexology, throw spa parties, and alleviate the pain of midnight burrito cravings.
The staff at Westside Weight Loss and Wellness Clinic helps clients reach body goals through a variety of individual programs and consultations. Personal evaluations paint a profile of one's diet, health, and exercise habits, which can be applied toward the creation of custom weight-loss programs. The team members understand the difficulties inherent in losing weight solely through diet or opening every pickle jar at the gym, so they help out with techniques such as whole-body vibration and exercise with oxygen therapy to increase health benefits.
The founder of MedSpa at Seena One, Dr. Anees, draws on his specialization in endocrinology, gastroenterology, and his advanced training in laser spa technology to round out a list of services designed to counteract the effects of aging. His interest in laser skin rejuvenation extends to his skilled team of medical aestheticians, who regularly zap follicles with noninvasive Lumenis lasers and break down unsightly veins with penetrating heat energy. The spa’s cosmetic aestheticians find the sweet spot between relaxation and results, expunging stress and blemishes with facials, massages, and infrared-sauna treatments that sizzle heavy-metal toxins still lingering long after their 1980s heyday.
Modeled after traditional Korean spas, King Spa and Sauna houses nine distinct therapy rooms, each of which specializes in treating a different form of ailment or anxiety. The Charcoal room lines its walls with antibacterial briquettes, which can alleviate conditions such as eczema and undercooked pork sausage. The domed sauna in the Fire Sudatorium encircles entrants in the room's dry-heat and oak-tree aromatherapy, whereas the low temperature of the Ice room encourages blood flow to the chilled parts of the body. In the heated Base Rock room, slabs of siraka stone deploy infrared rays into prostrate patrons, inciting increased circulation and lymphatic drainage during a process that, like most mixed-martial-arts careers, typically doesn't last longer than two 15-minute sessions.
Licensed doctor of naturopathic medicine Judy Hinojosa-Sinks begins each treatment at Vitality Natural Health Care the same way: with research. Before drafting a wellness plan, she may check for food allergies, analyze body-composition statistics, view hormone and toxicity levels, or all of the above. This commitment to sound research not only warms the hearts of bibliographers but also helps engender correct diagnoses for ailments ranging from irritable bowel syndrome to anxiety. Dr. Hinojosa-Sinks and her certified assistants then combat these conditions with treatments such as acupuncture, hydrotherapy, and herbal medicine.
