At World of Wellness, a team individually tailors a wellness plan to each patient, often offering complimentary weight-loss and wellness consultations to new clients. For clients interested in more in-depth therapies, visits begin with an in-depth diagnostic consultation, followed by a physical exam that helps the doctors better understand the patients' ailments and preferences. Doctors then construct a wellness plan, drawing from services including natural medicine, chiropractic work, rehab, massage therapy, and nutritional counseling.
The staff at Why Knot Massage strive to create a tranquil environment conducive to total relaxation. They use training in a number of modalities—including deep-tissue massage, sports massage, and reflexology—to ease clients' muscle tension and help reduce conditions such as high blood pressure or anxiety. They also employ hot stones and hot-towel foot scrubs to deepen a session's therapeutic benefits. They also travel to local offices for chair massages, which can improve employee morale and reduce the number of stress-ball-related finger strain.
Featured in beauty magazines, on ABC's 20/20, and on local news programs for her work in permanent cosmetics, Dixie Medford is both the owner of Classic Beauty Concepts and a certified permanent-cosmetic educator. Along with medical-grade skincare services, Medford can implant upper layers of skin with micropigments in permanent cosmetic sessions, eliminating the need for daily makeup applications or naps in a box of crayons. As she fills in brows and adds soft hues to lips, Medford carefully selects the shapes, colors, and designs that best complement skin color and features. Medford practices traditional makeup application techniques with her micropigments, as well as camouflaging scars and adding beauty marks. Her beauty repertoire also includes light- to medium-depth chemical peels, medical microdermabrasion, and ultrasonic facials.
Beauty and Beyond’s menu is more akin to a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure novel than a traditional list of spa services. While hair stylists, nail techs, and aestheticians make sure externals look fabulous, massage therapists soothe the stuff below the surface inside private treatment rooms. Health-minded instructors, meanwhile, lead a diverse range of classes— including yoga, Pilates, and pole dancing—in sequestered areas dedicated to fitness.
