Tucked inside Quality of Life Medical & Research Center, a 7,800-square-foot medical facility, Quality Aesthetics' certified laser specialist Loida Fraijo and Michelle Lind draw on years of experience as they revive worn complexions. They aim to help clients reclaim youth by using clinical-strength skincare products as well as all-natural, vitamin-infused DeVita Rx products and laser technology in a menu of skin-tightening services, micropeels, and acne treatments. Whether performing a photo facial rejuvenation, tattoo removal with an UltraLight-Q laser, or Zerona body-contouring treatment, Fraijo begins with a free consultation and ends by having her magic mirror revise who it considers the fairest of all.

Health Through Awareness's licensed massage dynamo, Spirit, untethers tension from taut bodies with integrated massages that follow corporeal cues using an array of techniques. Visitors recline on a massage table draped with soft purple sheets as the dexterous therapist alternates massage styles to target specific sore spots, administering hot-stone kneads, aromatherapy, Thai stretches, and deep-tissue massages for pain and injury rehabilitation. Spirit can also focus her soothing grip on soft-tissue soreness with neuromuscular manipulations and laugh-inducing feather tickles. Session times include five to ten minutes for dressing and an introductory consultation. The treatment room at Health Through Awareness calms minds with warming hues, spiritual pictures, and hardwood floors, fostering an experience more relaxing than napping on a pile of plane tickets to Hawaii.
Ornate chandeliers hang from sleek metal rafters at From Within MedSpa, a complementary pairing that echoes Charlene and Fred Williams's blend of Eastern and Western healing philosophies. Fred helms the Eastern-style services, performing chakra balancing, reiki therapy, and jin shin jyutsu to remove swallowed Legos and other roadblocks from energy pathways. Charlene, a registered nurse who’s received advanced training from the Esthetic Skin Institute, relies on Western approaches to attend to beauty concerns. She helps smooth away fine lines with dermal fillers and chemical peels, and she contours physiques with HCG weight-loss programs. In addition to one-on-one appointments, the med spa routinely hosts wedding or Botox parties.
In Sanskrit, tula means balance. At Tula Wellness, that?s exactly what Dr. Arianna Sholes-Douglas helps women achieve: balance in mind, body, and spirit. Dr. Sholes-Douglas has practiced medicine for more than 20 years, but even before that, her passion for interacting with and guiding women shined through. As a college student, she abstained from spending her free time building forts out of uncooked Ramen noodles to conduct retreats and seminars for women.
Today, in addition to being a board-certified obstetrician-gynecologist, Dr. Sholes-Douglas is trained in integrative medicine and wellness coaching. She and the Tula Wellness team strive to uplift and empower women, whether that means by simply maintaining health with massage and skincare, or something more complex, such as managing weight and fatigue.
