Growing up on a farm, Dr. Olivia saw from a very early age that a harmonious relationship with nature can assist the body with its most basic needs. It's a lesson she's carried through her entire life, and at Distinct Touch, The Bodywork Center, she translates this earth-based philosophy into holistic and alternative healthcare.
Dr. Olivia's evaluation treatments include body scans, auricular therapy that uses reflexology points in the ear, and capno therapy, during which clients use a machine called a capnometer to evaluate their breathing. Dr. Olivia then helps her clients optimize their health via cupping and the multi-tool QNRT, which stands for Quantum Neurological Reset Therapy.
From its humble roots as a nail salon, Nature's Beauty Spa and Nails spent its first year growing into a full day spa. Although the nail technicians still pamper fingers, toes, and antennae—embellishing basic mani-pedis with everything from hot stones to paraffin dips—the team now includes a larger roster of dedicated specialists and bodywork therapists. An aesthetician keeps clients' skin looking youthful and radiant by performing revitalizing facials and chemical peels as well as microdermabrasion treatments. For a deeper sense of well-being, the three bodywork therapists can either unravel knotted muscles with fully custom massages or restore energetic balance with reiki and reflexology techniques.
Capsules do all the work at Aquarius Tanning Salon & High Tech Spa, where high-tech equipment takes the place of spa technicians. Clients step into tanning beds outfitted with Wolff lamps to turn their skin a bronzer hue, or lay down inside of the slim capsule to boost their metabolism and burn calories. Aquarius's other booths hydrate the skin, soften fine lines and wrinkles, and mist UV-free spray tans.
The owners of Exclusive Tans keep their cell phone number printed on their office door. That way, any customer who wanders by has immediate access to the owners to ask questions or voice concerns. This displayed cell phone number not only demonstrates the owners' devotion to customer satisfaction, but it also speaks to the sense of community Exclusive Tans shares with the public. Family owned and operated for more than 10 years, the team welcome clients as friends and neighbors, taking care to maintain a standard of personalized hometown service.
The staff is eager to educate, analyze skin, and beautify bodies through four levels of UV tanning. The salon also offers infrared body wraps that simmer away calories and toxins, while the hydration station replenishes dry skin with steam and LED light. For those looking for UV-free color, sunless tanning bronzes bodies without the solar risks of tanning on the beach or summering on Mercury.
After two decades of working in the medical field, Janie Medrano was disenchanted with pharmaceutical medicine. She decided to devote her time to teaching people how to treat what ails them through holistic means, rather than by swallowing pills or bubblegum-flavored band-aids. Janie opened The Wholistic Healing Center, where her greatest enjoyment is recommending options to meet clients’ nutritional or detoxification needs. She’s joined by Bonnie “Jodie” Huggins, an 11-year holistic veteran, who guides patrons to wellness through treatments such as colon hydrotherapy, reiki, and the emotional release of holistic kinesiology.
As a naturopathic doctor, Tom Demaro combines natural treatments and advanced technology to spark dramatic change in the body. Infra-Slim may be the most notable result of this innovative approach: Demaro fused the idea of pressure therapy, which has long been used to help patients suffering from circulatory problems, with infrared heat, which natural healing experts often call on for its detoxifying powers. The treatment is based on the idea that when fat cells heat up, they expand; add pressure to the mix, and the cell walls will burst, flushing their contents out through the body's lymphatic system. Infra-Slim is said to trim up to five inches from the waistline in as little as three sessions, a claim the center backs up on its website.
