Within Soul Relaxed Massage Spa, registered massage therapist Tierney Mitchell makes relaxation and health her life's work. After clients arrive, Ms. Mitchell chats with them to discuss possible treatments and pinpoint problematic conditions, such as injuries or spring-loaded limbs. She then uses techniques such as Swedish, myofascial release, and deep tissue to knead knotted muscles into states of relaxation. To enhance treatments, Ms. Mitchell can fill the massage room with scents of aromatherapy or employ hot stones that cause muscles to melt.
Medical Director Terrance L. Baker isn't afraid of embracing change. In fact, when he started practicing medicine more than 25 years ago, many of the technological instruments he relies on today, including lasers and body-contouring systems, weren't even invented yet. Instead of sticking to what he knew, he and his staff at Sollay Cosmetic Medical & Laser Center quickly adopted and mastered the new technology, opting to provide cutting-edge cosmetic treatments for their patients. The bedrock of their anti-aging services is the laser, which they use to remove unwanted hair, as well as to diminish unsightly veins, cellulite, or skin blemishes. To help clients get even closer to their ideal look, they also offer Botox injections, fillers, microdermabrasions, Neova Renaissance 2 peels, VerlaShape body contouring, E-2 skin rejuvenation, and Bioflex therapy.
As a college athlete, Lindsay Waxler struggled with injuries, pain, and a lack of solutions for any of these ailments apart from strong medicines or surgery. Driven to find a more holistic way to improve her health, she embarked on the study of acupuncture, initially as a patient. After experiencing the healing powers of acupuncture firsthand, Lindsay committed herself to becoming a practitioner, earning a master's degree in traditional oriental medicine and her license in acupuncture. Today, Lindsay uses her encyclopedic knowledge of the millennia-old needle practice to balance her patients’ bodies, increase their well-being, and even treat common conditions, such as back pain, muscle spasms, allergies, digestive issues, and stress. Her expertise allows her to manipulate energy, or chi, which travels through 20 pathways between 2,000 acupuncture points to meet up at a single rest stop. When the flow of chi is off, a variety of ailments and diseases can occur; needles inserted into key points aim to regulate and re-balance this vital energy.
After training in the cosmetic-enhancement bastions of New York City and Miami, Dr. Terri Hill returned to her native Maryland to enhance her patients' appearances with both plastic surgery and noninvasive procedures. Before any treatment, Dr. Hill educates her patients about their options to determine whether a surgical procedure, such as a face lift, or a less invasive method, such as a round of injectable fillers, is the best fit. Dr. Hill has used radio-frequency technology?including Thermage and other procedures?for more than 10 years in performing nonsurgical skin-tightening treatments, and is introducing Viora technology in 2015. Below the neck, Dr. Hill performs liposuction, tummy tucks, all types of breast enhancements, as well as noninvasive Endermologie treatments, which help minimize cellulite without putting patients under the knife.
Dr. Jeff Muneses, inspired by his personal success with chiropractic treatments, now works to help others suffering from health problems that range from ulcers and headaches to sports injuries and neck pain. During an initial consultation, patients outline their health history using words, Venn diagrams, or finger puppets before undergoing an examination. Exams, along with x-rays, help assess each patient’s current physical condition, making it easier for Dr. Jeff to develop effective treatment plans. Spinal adjustments correct vertebral subluxations, and therapeutic exercises, soft tissue work, cold-laser therapy, and electric stimulation aim to ease pain caused by working on your feet all day at a pretzel factory.
