Playing sports can ravage the human body, causing wear and tear to joints and muscles over time. Doctor of Chiropractic Christopher Soto dedicates himself to diagnosing the sorts of conditions that can cause chronic pain and impair athletic performance. By utilizing a combination of chiropractic care and therapeutic massage, his center's staff takes a results-driven approach intended to help patients rapidly improve and recover. Soto specializes in one treatment modality in particular: manipulation under anesthesia. These relatively intensive chiropractic sessions allow the doctor to treat an anesthetized patient and realign vertebrae in situations where the client's pain responses, muscle spasms, contractures, or guarding may prevent adequate care.
Board-certified Doctor of Chiropractic, Jennifer Cook, specializes in alleviating pain and discomfort caused by sports injuries and accidents while working to prevent its recurrence. She employs gentle hands-on treatments such as adjustments and physical therapy, as well as cold-laser therapy and hydromassage, to manage pain caused by everything from arthritis and scoliosis to plantar fasciitis and ligament tears.
The owners of Sanda Gané European Day Spa, Sanda Gané and Maxine Turner, joined forces with medical director Dr. Itzhak Nir to expand their menu of facial, massage, and waxing services to include laser treatments and beauty injections. While visitors yield their bodies to head-to-toe makeovers, they abandon their stresses in the spa’s tranquil setting free of the outside world’s cell-phone ringtones, honking horns, and hyenas overcome by hysterical laughter. In a flurry of scissor snips and haircare products, stylists cut and color outmoded hairdos, and manicurists groom and polish natural backscratchers. The spa’s medical staff wields lasers that blast away body hair and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and spider veins. Also, MediQuick weight-loss plans whittle away unwanted pounds with appetite suppressants and dietary advice.
During your hour-long massage, one of Zen's friendly licensed therapists will knead your back into a state of doughy bliss via 3,600 seconds of soothing connective strokes. The Swedish massage is one of the most popular modalities of muscle manipulation due to its relatively gentle nature, deeply relaxing effects, and ability to rock a leather jacket during all five seasons. Each massage at Zen is customized to patient preferences, so therapists can use light, medium, or firm pressure, but regardless of intensity, the gliding movements will stimulate your circulation and melt away your physical and emotional tension with the ease by which the sun melts ice cream. After Zen Massage's pampering, every last bit of body's stress will be evicted from its tissues and forced to take up residence in stray dogs' eyelashes.
At Baden Spa & Wellness, reflexology treatments, herbal compress massages, and bamboo massages are representational of the spa's traditional Eastern services. But the staff performs modernized treatments, too, including light therapy for the skin and ultrasonic cavitation that targets unwanted fat deposits. There's also a professional makeup artist on hand who specializes in bridal makeovers, not only for the bride but for bridesmaids, flower girls, and catering crews that want to look especially glamorous.
Car accidents, sports injuries, and repetitive movements can all cause muscular knots and strains, which the staff at Back In Shape Massage Therapy specializes in relieving. During sessions, they listen to clients’ concerns before pulling from Swedish, deep tissue, or neuromuscular modalities to loosen connective tissue and soothe chronic tension. Massage strokes are used to alleviate a variety of aches and pains, including headaches. Appointments are available by the minute or in half-hour increments.
