Holden Zalma knows the toll that exertion can take on muscles. Before he received his massage license, he helped to train USC's football, basketball, and swimming teams while he studied to be a physical therapist. After graduation, Holden founded MetaTouch, where he shares his burgeoning 16 years of massage-therapy experience with others. His philosophy is simple: scout out symptoms, hunt down their root causes, and treat the body as a whole by ignoring its unsightly seams. He and his staff of trained practitioners accomplish this task by blending techniques—such as massage, stretching, exercise, and acupuncture—to relieve pain, improve performance, and reduce the risk of future injuries.
Like bonsai trees, eyebrows require loving attention and skilled care if they're to shade a face with beautiful good fortune. The talented brow artists at Vinita's Beauty and Threading Studio won the 2009 honors of Best Cheap Brow Job from Los Angeles magazine. The cleanly kept salon utilizes safe and sanitary threading practices to quickly shape and exfoliate the brow without using chemical solutions or hot wax. Threading is a gently administered ancient art that lasts longer than other shaping techniques and won't leave you with sore side effects such as bumping and redness. Skilled brow stylists rave that the technique gives them more control than waxing and delivers a more precise look.
Skin Perfect's hair-despising laser was sent back through time to terminate unwanted hair quickly and safely using handcrafted photons that harmlessly pass through the skin to directly dissipate hair follicles. Technicians can evict pesky hair from the bodily zones of both men and women with high precision. They handle light lassos like hair-wrestling cowpokes, with each beam carefully calibrated for empathy and small talk. Laser hair removal often bequeaths a longer-lasting hairlessness than waxing or shaving, and while not completely painless, it's less painful than laser hair addition.
Latisse is an FDA-approved prescription drug that was developed to treat inadequate eyelash growth; be sure to carefully review the safety information on the Latisse website. If Celibre's experienced medical professionals and beauty wranglers decide after your initial consultation that the Latisse treatment is not suited for you, a full refund will be offered, or you can use the $99 you spent for the Groupon toward another service at the office. Celibre's eyelash consultants can spot a Latisse candidate from across the street—though they conduct a comprehensive exam attentive to your individual needs and eyelash dreams just for the fun of it.
