After working in the entertainment industry for outlets such as MGM Studios, Walt Disney, Warner Brothers, and NBC, Sally Cossey opened An Elegant Touch Skincare Salon to beautify clients with custom skincare and makeup treatments. She and her staff of certified aestheticians harness the power of An Elegant Touch, Cellex-C, GloMinerals, and GloTherapeutics products to perform services that range from specialty facials and body waxing to massages and eyelash extensions. They also specialize in same-day beauty packages and bridal treatments.
When clients visit Tao Family Chiropractic, they go through a carefully-designed sequence of events, with the end goal being less fat. After a consult, technicians can use an UltraSlim LED to target unwanted fat across the body. They complement this signature treatment with other services such as a full body vibration platform, which can address issues such as cellulite, flexibility, and overall fitness. The wellness experts also administer lymphatic massages.
The staff at Image Resorts Beauty & Tanning Salon makes sure their clients are refreshed from head to toe. For heads, stylists wrangle unruly strands and swap out monochromatic locks for eye-catching highlights using Redken, Matrix, and Paul Mitchell products. Faces are rendered dirt- and oil-free with Dermalogica products, and toe- and fingernails stay chip-free with gel nail polish, which keeps nails strong while washing plates or concrete bowls. The rest of the body gets pampered with waxes and massages.
Vie the Spa is an exclusive women’s spa that caters to female well-being with body-swaddling detoxifying wraps. Developed by biochemists from UCLA Medical Center, the herbal formulation of a M’lis Detox Contour wrap encourages circulatory lymphatic flow, which cleanses tissues without laundry detergent guesswork. Clients relax in a warm cocoon that keeps the skin and body hydrated as cellulite dissipates and up to 14 inches melt away from forms like butter on a Saharan sidewalk.
Like its name, Chiropuncture is a hybrid. Only the two distinct things the center combines aren't acupuncture and chiropractic—those practices often go hand-in-hand—but rather a holistic medical clinic and a traditional spa. The former is the domain of Doctor of Chiropractic Danny Lai, who has been running a chiropractic clinic since 1997, and has been a licensed acupuncturist since 2005. Dr. Lai sees each chiropractic patient personally, adapting his treatment regimen to the patient's specific maladies, be they arthritis and migraines or ADHD, anxiety, and insomnia. He speaks English, Vietnamese, and Spanish, so communicating with him is easier than talking to a fern that only knows Swahili.
The second side of the center, the spa, has some reassuring credentials of its own. It uses the popular Dermalogica line of products in its skincare services, which include a Power Regeneration treatment for mature skin and a revitalizing eye rescue that erases the dark circles that appear under eyes when you haven't had enough rest or have fallen for the old "inky kaleidoscope" trick again. The rest of the menu is a grab bag of waxing services, massages, and synthetic-lash and makeup applications.
Chiropractor Dave Lemons and his staff at Chiropractic Wellness Center believe there's more to health care than squashing symptoms as they appear. They believe these symptoms should be traced back to their roots and dealt with there, so they don't transform into recurring ailments. Their chiropractic treatments take a natural and systemic approach to healing that's based on the idea that the body can heal itself when given the chance. Gentle adjustments take the place of drugs and medicine by putting the body in a position where it can effectively heal everything from joint pain to headaches.
The experts at Healing Laser Centers can ease pain without a single touch. That's because they harness the healing power of the cold laser, a device that sends low levels of energy deep into strained and injured muscles to jump-start the healing process. In each 5- to 20-minute treatment, staffers suffuse the body with this powerful light energy to relieve pain caused by work stresses, athletic endeavors, or attempts to give itself a back massage. Many patients feel nothing during the treatment and often feel progressively better for days afterward. To enhance the technology's muscle-mending capabilities, the center also keeps massage therapists on staff for hands-on tension relief.
