Sol Day Spa puts a premium on hassle-free relaxation, allowing clients to book appointments online for massage, waxing, aromatherapy, and a whole host of facial services. In private treatment rooms, the spa?s aestheticians can take the time to analyze skin and perform meticulous skincare services to address problems including acne, fine lines, and sensitivity. Deep cleansing with extractions purifies the skin, and add-ons can address clients? skincare issues. The vitamin C serum heals sensitive or sun-damaged skin, and a lightening treatment fades hyperpigmentation and scars from old blemishes or freckle duels.
Specialty massage types relax bodies with hot stones, deep pressure, or gentle kneading designed to relieve the pain and discomfort of expectant mothers.
Chiropractor Eric Wilson began honing his posture-tweaking prowess at Life University in Marietta, Georgia, which specializes in chiropractic medicine. Wilson also boasts certification in physiotherapy and he actively advances his education, most recently with studies in sports therapy. His private practice in Westminster offers individualized services to treat pain and foster holistic health. Wilson keeps patients informed and at ease, offering tips for a healthy lifestyle and explaining each procedure via fast-paced freestyle rapping. In addition to spinal adjustments, Wilson Chiropractic & Wellness LLC eases chronic pain with acupuncture, and the experienced massage therapists on staff also encourage healing inside and out with massage techniques ranging from Swedish to craniosacral therapies.
Dr. Katie Short teaches her patients how healing happens from within. But she does more than talk about it; she demonstrates the body’s ability to recover from a wide range of ailments by performing strictly noninvasive and drug-free techniques. After a thorough consultation and exam, she sets to work stimulating the body’s internal balancing mechanisms with manual spinal adjustments. To round out her services, she works elbow to elbow with licensed acupuncturist Jessie Maxwell. Jessie triggers some of the same healing energies as Dr. Short, but with hair-thin needles instead of adjustments.
Lasers have long been employed to destroy unwanted hair and planets, but the technicians at Vitality Weight Loss & Wellness use them for therapeutic purposes. In fact, low-level, or cold laser therapy, can help assuage a wide range of health issues. Arthritis pain, spider veins, and even scars can begin to melt away as the laser light triggers a natural healing process within the body. Technicians can even target specific acupuncture points to jump start healing faster than traditional needles can.
But pain and blemishes aren't the technicians' only target. They also home in on unwanted habits, such as smoking. Acupuncture points still act as their road map as they aim their lasers at specific areas that may play a role in decreasing symptoms of nicotine withdrawal and cravings. A similar technique is used to spur weight loss, in which the techs aim instead at the acupuncture points that control the nervous system's hormonal balance.
Healing Touch Massage Therapy founder Lori Garcia certainly sees the relaxing benefits of her trade. She finds that massage can act as a stress combatant that prevents the onset of disease, or simply, as she puts it, as "a positive ripple effect" that resounds throughout her clients' personal and professional lives. Her private rooms—warm, low-lit spaces with comfortable massage beds and lullaby karaoke—most definitely contribute to the spa's restful vibe.
But Lori is also an advocate of the more acute applications of massage, as she specializes in medical and therapeutic treatment. Upon receiving her certification, she pursued advanced training in 11 different techniques, including oncology massage, reflexology, and applied kinesiology. To that end, she performs 16 types of body treatments at Healing Touch, which range from neuromuscular and trigger-point therapy to hot-stone massage and raindrop technique. She has recently expanded into detoxifying therapies as well (including ionic footbaths and far-infrared body wraps), and will soon be introducing aesthetic services.
