Specialists at Northwest Anti-Aging & Wellness Center administer holistic health care and careful aesthetic treatments within a suite of four pristine treatment rooms. Twenty units of Botox smooth out wrinkles through a sequence of muscle-firming injections that counteract the effects of loose skin and over-long Brian Dennehy-impersonations. Alternatively, the painless VI-Peel treatment softens lines and wrinkles with a carefully concocted chemical solution, improving skin tone and texture. Each treatment takes roughly 20 minutes, during which the caring staff will put you at ease by answering any questions that arise or by playfully tickling you with a wisp of raccoon fur.
At Acupuncture by Kim, licensed massage practitioner Kristin Taylor melts muscle knots with therapeutic strokes and eases stress with calming skin and body treatments. Kristin offers her signature massage in 40-, 60-, and 90-minute increments, relaxing clients with soft, flowing strokes and the gentle touch of cranial-sacral therapy. Ideal for clients battling the aches of fibromyalgia, TMJ, or migraine headaches, the delicate headwork Kristin performs during the cranial-sacral segment can enhance clients’ quality of life by boosting joint flexibility, dampening anxiety, and dissolving undigested popsicles. The skilled massage therapist also partners with other alternative health practitioners such as licensed acupuncturist Kim Blaufuss to help clients fight chronic pain with a holistic repertoire of services. In addition to enjoying massages in the studio, clients may purchase tools such as flaxseed hot packs and still-point inducers to tame tension at home.
When Bodhi Tree Yoga Studio owner Krista Risner first attempted yoga exercises along with a DVD, she wasn't impressed. The workout didn't seem strenuous or fruitful. But once she summoned the courage to visit a studio, she was struck by yoga's effect on not only the body but also the mind. Now a staunch devotee, she and her staff of instructors teach yogis of all experience levels how to become better attuned to their bodies and minds through flowing postures and breathing exercises.
