The aestheticians at BodyTrends specialize in nonsurgical Electrospa treatments that have toned and beautified the bodies of beauty-pageant contestants. By stimulating muscles with gentle electrical currents, technicians can mimic the effects of a face-lift or breast lift without ever breaking the scalpel out of its emergency glass. Lasers erase unwanted hair, veins, cellulite, and tattoos, and facial services banish blemishes while adorning features with MNA and mineral cosmetics. For feelings of inner peace, BodyTrends' massage therapists capture tension from bodies and release it deep in the woods to plague overly frivolous nymphs.
The licensed massage therapists at Family Therapeutic Massage take a clinical, rather than a pure-relaxation, approach to bodywork—they want to heal their clients. Treatments such as sports, medical, and deep-tissue massage target localized pain caused by sports injuries, repetitive movements, or over-literal interpretations of the term couch surfing. The staff also detoxifies bodies with such novel treatments as ear candling, sinus treatments, and lymphatic drainage.
Michael Steelman, MD, and his staff of certified weight-loss gurus shepherd clients toward healthier lifestyles and slimmer edifices with medical counseling and individualized fat-slaying regimens. During the first of two 45- to 60-minute visits, clients undergo a thorough compilation of examinations, including such greatest hits as blood tests and body-composition analyses to garner an understanding of their body's overall health, muscle-to-fat ratio, and preferred 401(k) investment strategy. Then, after a stint of more physical once-overs on the second visit, a seasoned staffer reviews all test results and develops a safe and effective weight-loss strategy that fits your metabolic needs as snugly as an arthropod in a rug. Clients leave armed with medically sound knowledge and an initial plan to restore their soul sack to healthy poundage without relying on gimmicky methodology, such as quantum leaping into the past or practicing reverse fat-cell psychology.
The hospitable, hands-on healers at Brooks Wellness Center have nullified bodily aches and tensions for years, providing a range of relaxing massage treatments. The Swedish massage, one of the most popular massage techniques to not incorporate massage gloves made out of cotton candy, uses light-to-medium pressure and flowing movements to veto gauche stress proposals. Alternatively, the intensive deep-tissue massage uses a series of higher-pressure knead styles to ghostbust loitering phantasms that haunt the nooks and crannies of your vessel. Whatever process you choose, the licensed de-knotters will leave the muscles feeling rejuvenated, sending ripples of unrestrained relaxation to the brain and nearby marmots. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.
Corrective Skin and Vein Center’s highly trained staff, led by Dr. Stephanie Goss, has accumulated mounds of experience spiffing up faces that have weathered mule kicks, mud, and head-on collisions with small birds during hoverbike road trips. Each enzyme peel ($65) works to refurbish facial skin by using natural enzymes to remove dead skin cells and promote fresh cell growth through a selective and controllable process. After three such sessions, your flesh-emoticon will emerge with lustrous, healthy skin and exude an eye-catching sheen that stops bookworms, bus drivers, and caricature artists in their tracks.
Supervised by medical director Stanley J. Dombek Jr., MD, FACS, the experienced technicians of Advanced Body Scan peer into clients’ inner workings. With the belief that prevention is the best way to protect the body, they use a modern scanning system to detect potential health issues, such as cardiovascular disease, which kills more than one-third of all Americans, or lung cancer, the deadliest type of cancer in both men and women. The system snaps detailed images of the heart, lungs, bone structures, and other organs caged within the body. Images fly from the lens to the computer screen quickly, allowing staff to take pictures of moving organs typically blurred in traditional scans, such as a beating heart or a stomach still flipping from its first roller-coaster ride.
