Joyce Garcia has dedicated her entire life to learning how human touch and mindful bodywork treatments can contribute to a person’s holistic wellbeing. In addition to formally studying massage therapy and mastering the techniques of Swedish, deep tissue, and prenatal modalities, she's also trained in the practice of Brennan Healing Science—a hands-on therapy intended to restore a sense of physical and emotional stability by addressing energy imbalances. When human touch alone can’t fully address one's underlying health concerns, Joyce turns to modern technological advancements that support her mission of restoring holistic balance. The handheld XP2 device is one such piece of technology, using high-frequency, electro-sound energy to help cleanse the body, regenerate damaged tissues, and promote healthy, unrestricted flow of the lymphatic system.
He may be master of multiple laser systems, but Dr. Robert T. Motazedi is not looking to blow up the moon. Rather, the chief of The Colorado Laser Clinic has set his sights on destroying sun spots, acne, and even tired tattoos with his aesthetic laser treatments. The doctor, along with his certified and trained assistants, has wielded laser power to remove unwanted hair for more than 15 years. For jobs not fit for a laser, the doc calls upon Physician’s Choice chemical peels, sclerotherapy, and doses of Restylane, Sculptra, and Botox.
Colorado Springs Lipo Laser zaps fat from waistlines to give clients a leaner look. During treatments, a laser dissolves the fat deposits just under the skin. That fat is then ejected from the body, leaving torsos taut and smooth. The clinic recommends clients continue pursuing a healthy diet and regular exercise regimen to maintain the weight loss.
A chiropractor for more than 25 years, the owner of Healthy Image Colorado has also made time to acquire skills as a laser therapist and weight-loss consultant. But at his med spa, he focuses on beauty enhancing using two methods: microcurrent therapy and body wraps. Microcurrent rollers stimulate collagen production and skin repair to smooth away wrinkles and firm soft muscles in the face, neck, or body. Alternatively, cleansing body wraps use herbal formulas and restrictive pressure to cause lymphatic drainage, detoxifying the skin inside and out.
Fountain of Youth Skin Care?s skilled aestheticians restore skin to a glowing, youthful state with vitamin-infused serums and organic scrubs. Their popular organic enzyme facial, for example, hydrates and rejuvenates skin cells with natural enzymes and fruit extracts. Though they pride themselves on using all-natural ingredients, the spa?s aestheticians don?t shy away from advanced treatments such as chemical peels and MicroPhototherapy facials. The latter of these combats signs of aging with collagen-stimulating pulses of heat and light energy, and its lack of abrasives means that no downtime is necessary for recovery. Waxing treatments keep freshly groomed faces and bodies free of unwanted hair, while micro-needling is designed to help the body form new layers of smoother, younger-looking skin.
