The licensed spa technicians at We Treat Feet Spa offer a variety of treatments for the feet and hands. The classic pedicure with Dr.'s Remedy polish uses a natural alternative to regular polishes, making it idea for clients with nail fungus, brittle or discolored nails, chemical allergies, or those who are pregnant. Nail extensions are available in silk tips or shellac, and customers can adorn their new nails with nail designs. Sore feet can take advantage of a foot bath and massage to relax.
Licensed podiatrists Dr. Francis J. Smith and Dr. Michael A. Klein deliver soothing relief to feet and ankles aching from infections, poor circulation, and arthritis. Operating out of two facilities, the doctors work with such advanced technology as the OssaTron shock-wave system, which treats conditions of the bone, joint, and tendon, and specially designed lasers that painlessly wipe away bacteria tucked beneath nail beds. The staff ensure that patients thoroughly understand their treatments beforehand, and work to offer each one a comfortable, educational visit and free hourly puppet shows at the receptionist’s desk.
In addition to treating a slew of foot and ankle ailments, board-certified podiatrists Dr. Annette Joyce and Dr. Justin Lewis rejuvenate weary paws with medical-grade pedicures. A toenail trim keeps clients from missing meetings because they were caught in shag carpets, and a comprehensive buffing softens and sloughs off toughened calluses. Leg tips then soak up an application of moisturizer before a tailored massage saps tension from heels and arches. Feet can shimmy out of the office with softer skin, reduced soreness, and the ability to run up water slides.
Barking orders for more than 20 years, The Sergeant's Program's head sergeant Chuck Dyson and his dedicated troop of more than 50 sergeants and personal trainers transform figures with military-style fitness sessions. The program provides a knowledgeable instructor to lead recruits through cardio, core, flexibility, stabilization, and resistance training while creating camaraderie amongst fellow fitness platooners. Though each day is fueled with running drills and calisthenics, Mondays and Fridays will be focused on increasing lower body and flank strength and Tuesdays and Thursdays will be geared toward upper body workouts. Cardio-intensive Wednesdays are solely dedicated to getting the heart pumping, sweat streaming, and reshaping rumps flattened by years in stagecoach-driver seats. Although the sergeants utilize a tough-love approach to push clients to their fullest fitness factor, the atmosphere is kept personable by their injections of light-hearted humor and giggling quartets of chipmunks.
