Like many chiropractors, Doctor of Chiropractic Heidi Pickering offers nutrition and weight-loss services in addition to her pain-relieving spinal adjustments and massage therapy. But unlike other chiropractors, Heidi really practices what she preaches—she is a fitness model who has taken first place in a Muscle Madness competition where she showed off her incredibly toned physique.
At Paradise Palms Chiropractic & Spa, she helps clients achieve their own weight-loss goals with services such as nonsurgical body contouring, Power Vibe vibration muscle toning, and body wraps.
Keeping client satisfaction at the forefront of its mission, the Avalon Med Spa and Laser Center recently underwent a complete overhaul that included acquiring the award-winning G.M. Collin product line, as well as a new therapist, physician, and staff. A medical director and board certified-internist leads a team of professionals, including one member with certification in aesthetic medicine, and special training in medical informatics. The wide-reaching expertise of its staff enables Avalon Med Spa to deliver a varied menu of aesthetic services that includes everything from laser hair removal to teeth whitening, Botox, and body wraps.
Devoted to bettering the patient experience, the center also nestles clients into a relaxing environment replete with plush couches and a waiting lounge done up in warm, neutral tones. Hardwood floors lead clients back to a private treatment room, where the elegant décor relaxes with furnishings such as draped, olive-green curtains, frosted sconces, and a wall waterfall that trickles out droplets harvested from the fountain of youth.:m]]
During a plastic surgery consultation with Dr. Eleanor Barone, she goes out of her way to outline all the procedure options available to clients so that they can make informed decisions based on expected results, downtime, and price points. She rejuvenates faces with surgical lifts, while the registered nurse on staff fights crow's feet and facial folds with beauty injections and dermal fillers. Liposuction removes unwanted fat deposits during an outpatient surgery, and noninvasive Viora Reaction treatments iron out cellulite via scalpel-free radio frequencies.
It's hard not to relax while lounging beside glowing paper lanterns and flickering candles––and the therapy has barely begun. Licensed massage therapist Danerys Gonzalez slowly builds from flowing Swedish strokes to deep-tissue pressure, which can improve range of motion in muscles. Guests may also pair bodywork with Danerys' signature brown-sugar body scrub, or request a slimming body wrap with essences of key lime or vanilla bean.
Planet Beach is a one-stop-shop for beauty and wellness. Members can stay bronzed all year long in the UV tanning booths and recharge any solar-powered body doubles. But one of the highlights of the studio is the futuristic Contempo Spa onsite, a self-serve spa machine where you can push a button to receive a number of spa services without the need for an attendant. The machine's HydroMassage bed helps alleviate muscle soreness with targeted waves of heated water. Other DIY services available: 15-minute teeth whitening procedures and Lumiere.
Helmed by accomplished physician and anti-aging specialist Dr. James W. Graybill III, JG Health & Wellness keeps bodies in peak physical condition with a diverse regimen of aesthetic treatments, weight management, nutritional supplements, and hormone therapy. Certified medical technicians work hand-in-hand with patients to build long-lasting partnerships and help each client feel and look younger for years to come. Treatments of Juvéderm, Vivité, and Botox keep skin looking supple, smooth, and wrinkle free, whereas extensive lab analyses, hormone treatments, and B12 injections beautify internal organs by accelerating metabolisms and boosting energy levels.
Owner of ReNew Life Clinic and a licensed colon hydrotherapist, Bonnie Barrett gently flushes toxins from bodily pipes to engender holistic, whole-body healing. To begin, patients don gowns or their favorite flannel union suit in a private treatment room, where technicians assemble a purification system including disposable tubing. During the procedure, warm, filtered water flows leisurely through the entire large intestine, sweeping up accumulated waste and bacteria and whisking them out via single-use tubes. Aside from possibly curbing symptoms such as gas, bloating, and fatigue, the 60-minute treatment tones the colon to enable peristalsis and may invigorate bodies and leave them feeling lighter.
