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.
Registered nurse, certified midwife, and certified laser specialist Michelle Hartman helms You Living Younger—but for all her mainstream credentials, she embraces alternative treatments. Rather than relying on pharmaceuticals, Hartman’s wellness center focuses on remedies that range from natural supplements to body-balancing technology, in an attempt to create of community of individuals who want to change the status quo in healthcare and take control of their own health and well being. Regardless of whether she’s overseeing detoxifying infrared sauna sessions or ionic footbaths, Hartman focuses on prevention and custom care, a style far preferable to just prescribing either crutches or Band-Aids to everyone.
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.
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.
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.

For a more private tanning experience, the Mystic Tan booth requires only the push of a button to cover physiques in a choice of three shades. Flanking the front desk's sun-inspired mirror and array of leafy plants, a brigade of indoor tanning products, such as California Tan, Designer Skin, and Australian Gold, lines glass shelves to help clients achieve a coveted hue.
