Certified laser technicians and aestheticians wield wands of intense pulsed light at Estetical Laser Hair Removal, removing unwanted patches of hair, regrettable tattoos, and stubborn acne. They also treat faces with hydroxy-acid peels, which work to diminish fine lines, sun spots, and freckles caused by too much time in the moonlight.
Preston Salon Spa's namesake founder Steven Preston and his congenial staff of stylists cure drab tresses with comprehensive salon and spa services. During packages, clients kick back for up to two hours, collaborating with beautifiers to mold new 'dos according to personal tastes. Coifs ranging from trendy to traditional materialize as staffers curtail overflowing tendrils and cure styles with a blow dryer. Aveda treatments launch a multipronged attack on noggin maladies, detoxifying scalps and nourishing thirsty strands to produce hair softer and healthier than a nutritionist's grocery list embroidered on silk. Then, professionals uproot fuzzy outliers from lips and brows or subtly highlight natural beauty with a dusting of makeup.
At A Healing Place Massage for Wellness, there's a special focus on the lymphatic system. Using standard modalities such as Swedish and deep tissue, the staff takes care of clients with relaxing techniques that calm the body. Therapists can also loosen tissue and relieve pain by practicing myofascial-release therapy, a blend of massage and stretching. Inspired by the lavender fields of France, the soothing scent of the flower permeates the air to relax clients, and everything from the walls to the products are splashed with a lavender hue.
Face Enhancements' skincare treatments include facials, peels, and body scrubs, all designed to restore youth and radiance. Take the parsley-and-cucumber oxygenating treatment, which tones and purifies skin and spurs cellular repair, or the Flaxx-C anti-aging facial, which helps smooth wrinkles and tighten the skin. Face Enhancements also offers lash extensions, nail treatments, and permanent makeup.
Like the full range of muscles it challenges, Wellbridge Athletic Club & Spa affords a full range of experiences to a broad spectrum of visitors, from corporate coworkers to athletic kids. A 25-yard indoor lap pool hosts swimmers, who can dry off with towels in a full-amenity locker room. Group fitness classes challenge visitors to sweat through cycling, Pilates, and aqua Zumba. The latter gets swimming bodies boogying to the tune of energetic international and Latin rhythms. There are also more than 47 pieces of cardio equipment that allow visitors to work out independently, and some of the cardio machines have flat-screen TVs and satellite radio, which actually orbits you as you listen to it.
In order to offer their visitors ample guidance, Wellbridge Athletic Club & Spa staffs several personal trainers, who assist clients striving for a variety of goals, including weight loss and injury recovery. The facility’s free childcare allows parents to work out without the hassle of finding a sitter, and its spa allows those same parents to shed every last scintilla of stress during a relaxing massage.
Doctor of Chiropractic Matt Berman’s abilities have made him somewhat of a celebrity, if his clientele is any indication. In addition to the clients at his private practice—Berman Chiropractic & Wellness—Dr. Berman has performed chiropractic therapies for celebrities including musicians, athletes, and dancers. And despite his precise expertise, his office doesn’t have a clinical feel. A stone wall and relaxed ambiance reminds visitors more of a spa than a doctor’s office.
But Dr. Berman does know a thing or two about clinical settings; he began his medical career working in a hospital, where he observed that patients sustained themselves with long-term medication, too-frequent surgeries, or sugarcoated multivitamins. By contrast, when he began working in a chiropractic office, he recalls that “people were getting better without the use of drugs or surgery.” Inspired by his initial brush with chiropractic, he now combines holistic health services such as spinal-decompression therapies and weight-loss programs with an eight-person massage team that offers 14 different modalities.
