Guided by family traditions of holistic medicine and respect for nature, Pamela Reynolds helps restore her client's health at Inspired Thru Nature, a natural health center that specializes in colon hydrotherapy. A family history of digestive disorders informs Pamela's practice, and many of her treatments aim to detox the digestive tract and return the body to its natural, healthy state through methods such as ionic footbaths, infrared-sauna sessions, body wraps, and ear candling. Irodology, one of Pamela's signature treatments, uses noninvasive technology to examine the iris, which provides pointed insights into overall health and celebrity-lookalike matches.
Dr. Lisa Wang doesn't just practice Chinese medicine—she also spends her days teaching others about its benefits. As a third-generation doctor of Chinese medicine with more than 35 years of experience, she leads frequent workshops on medicine, tai chi, and meditation and teaches a college course in ancient alternative healthcare. At Wang Wellness Center, she and her team of expert practitioners use all-natural and ancient treatments such as acupuncture, facial massage, ayurvedic medicine, and homeopathy. Treatments such as acupuncture may help with weight loss, symptoms of PTSD, PSM, and menopause. These treatments aid conditions that range from chronic pain to breathing problems to stress from dreams about being trapped inside a hard chocolate shell.
The talented therapists and aestheticians at Forever Young MedSpa peacefully negotiate between clients and their troubled exteriors. Aggravated muscles can submit to the classic Swedish massage to alleviate aches and tame tension. During 60 minutes of body kneading, mitten-fillers frolic about backs while targeting specific sore spots with smooth, gliding strokes and massage lotions. With a 60-minute stress-relieving facial, clients can transport faces to a place as still and calm as a British Royal guard after a glass of warm milk. A thorough cleansing rids skin surfaces of dirt and toxins before a custom mask smooths over complexions and territory disputes between pores and their surrounding skin. A facial, hand, and shoulder massage, along with finishing skin products, provide a kindly coda to the relaxing treatment.
