Shanthy Jayakumar prescribed many medicines during the nine years she worked as a medical consultant for Mother Teresa Medicare in Sri Lanka, but you'd be hard pressed to find any of them in a typical drugstore. That's because her prescriptions consist of herbs, holistic therapies, and even certain types of food. According to Shanthy, many patients initially come to Harisa Massage Therapy & Ayurvedic Wellness Center for Western-style massages or organic facials, but return for the Ayurvedic medicine that she introduces to them.
Treatments such as herbal nasal cleansing absolve the body of physical impurities, and relaxing Shirodhara head massages quiet inner monologues or AM radio signals as a slow drizzle of heated oil drips onto the forehead. Panchakarma therapy cleanses the three Ayurvedic systems that govern the body by combining healing massage therapy with internal cleansing induced by carefully selected herbs.

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
BodyLight consists of eight pads that are placed directly on the skin for 15 minutes. They emit a specific wavelength of light, mimicking the body's own natural fat loss process by opening a pore through which the fat empties. Each session is followed by 10 minutes of vibration therapy along with nutritional counseling.

Treating the cosmetic blemishes that can appear on aging skin requires a forward-looking approach. Overseen by Drs. Hratch Karamanoukian and Raffy Karamanoukian, Advanced Aesthetics Medical Spa keeps pace with the passage of time by constantly seeking out new advancements in technology, skincare products, and cosmetic procedures.
The center’s cache of technology includes cosmetic laser systems that work to improve skin tone and texture by addressing fine lines, acne scars, and scratch-and-sniff tattoos. Beyond light, these and other systems can also use sound waves or radio frequencies to firm and lift faces. Even the more traditional spa procedures at the clinic pamper clients with medical-grade products and equipment. The crystal-free microdermabrasion system uses a diamond-encrusted titanium wand to smooth away impurities, and facials with botanically derived balms and vitamin C rejuvenate complexions.
Dr. Jack Bertolino, Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics's owner and operator, employs a slew of modern technologies to combat his patients' signs of aging. He zaps wrinkles, cellulite, and stretch marks with his arsenal of medical-grade lasers. Along with lasers, Dr. Bertolino offers bariatric medicine to aid weight loss. Dr. Bertolino is also one of the area's only practitioners to offer bioidentical hormone-replacement therapy, which introduces testosterone and estrogen back into aging bodies with time-release capsules implanted in the skin, helping men and women maintain their health, youth, and love of trampolines.
The staff at New Image harnesses laser technology, noninvasive peels, and injectable treatments to smooth skin and combat signs of aging from various body parts. Armed with the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, they work to reduce corporeal circumferences, or using Smoothbeam lasers, they zap away sun spots, acne, and wrinkles. Their new Vaser Shape treatment uses ultrasound to smooth and firm the body by reducing the appearance of cellulite. Other cosmetic technologies, such as microdermabrasions and teeth-whitening LED lights, work to brighten dull or coffee-coated surfaces.
The technicians at Buffalo Laser Spa harness the power of light to ease aesthetic woes such as excess fat and unwanted body hair. Their arsenal of equipment includes devices by Zerona, VelaShape, and SmoothShapes, which work hard to contour physiques, smooth out cellulite, and understand human emotions. Laser hair removal and electrolysis zap hairs in their active growth cycles, leaving skin sleek and free of fuzz.
