Jackie Bernhardt looks at life differently. And when she works with clients, she looks at the whole person in order to customize sessions that will be rewarding both emotionally and physically?whether the focus be relaxation, easing sore muscles, or relieving pain. Jackie introduces these ideas to others with her classes.
Joyce Garcia has dedicated her entire life to learning how human touch and mindful bodywork treatments can contribute to a person’s holistic wellbeing. In addition to formally studying massage therapy and mastering the techniques of Swedish, deep tissue, and prenatal modalities, she's also trained in the practice of Brennan Healing Science—a hands-on therapy intended to restore a sense of physical and emotional stability by addressing energy imbalances. When human touch alone can’t fully address one's underlying health concerns, Joyce turns to modern technological advancements that support her mission of restoring holistic balance. The handheld XP2 device is one such piece of technology, using high-frequency, electro-sound energy to help cleanse the body, regenerate damaged tissues, and promote healthy, unrestricted flow of the lymphatic system.
Winner of the Boulder County Gold People's Choice award for best skincare facility in 2010, Laser & Cosmetic Associates of Boulder's team of surgeons and licensed aestheticians beautify and revitalize face skin with advanced, clinical-grade facial treatments. The Vitalize peel is a 20-minute procedure designed to improve your flesh-emoticon’s skin texture and tone with a gentle rain of safe acids. The Vitalize peel effectively erases fine lines, acne scarring, sun damage, and rocks that have sprouted out of the skin as a result of cosmic ray exposure. Faces are slightly sensitive after the procedure and should be protected with sunscreen, but there is virtually no recovery time and patients can return to their office or Senate hearing immediately.
GR8 Alchemy's staff uses their considerable talents in skincare to help clients achieve a balance of beauty and wellness. They believe that "real beauty is a natural extension of feeling happy in your body and radiant in your own skin," and their services reflect that philosophy. A menu of facials, peels, and injectable fillers focus on revealing flawless visages, while weight loss treatments such as vibration plate therapy and ear acupuncture skim inches off of waistlines. In addition to beautification treatments, the team also offers men's hormone optimization and sexual health therapies.
After almost losing their lives to severe infections and metal toxicity exposure, the holistic physician and biofeedback therapist behind Heal Transformation Center decided to turn their own physical and emotional struggles into an opportunity to benefit others. Doctor of Chiropractic Justine Anderson?or "Dr. J," as her patients call her?combines her training in naturopathic and Oriental medicine with the healing skills of master biofeedback therapist Tonda Wilkinson. The two offer services ranging from light and color therapy to acupuncture and fat-melting Zerona sessions, but perhaps their best-known treatment is a cycle through the Energy Medicine Bay.
During this 60-minute circuit treatment in an open, earth-toned space filled with Asian-inspired artwork, guests sit on cushy, red armchairs while utilizing energy-medicine devices to unblock energy. The process accommodates 75 people per day and addresses the movement of lymphatic fluid, reinforces the body's innate healing systems via various frequencies, and detoxifies the body.
In addition to unblocking people?s energy, Heal Transformation Center clears properties of negative energy. Its animal practitioners can also rehabilitate pets that are sick or refuse to file their yearly tax returns by correcting emotional blocks that are creating illness or behavioral issues.
Dr. Carolyn Kupka culls from her more than 30 years of experience in all facets of dentistry to maintain and beautify smiles in both children and adults. Through her work, she has learned that the dental office doesn’t have to be a place that people feel apprehensive about. Once patients walk into her office, she and her team assuage their anxieties with a cornucopia of comforts, such as Starbucks' mocha latte coffee, juices, and Ghirardelli chocolate gift bags. During cleanings, restoration, or cosmetic whitening treatments, clients can relax under steamed towels while resting atop an extra-padded chair. Any residual tension yields to the touch of the onsite massage therapist who sits by to cosset muscles with chair-side massages. DVDs and personal iPods shield ears from ambient office noises and gossip about the Tooth Fairy.
