Sesen Skin Body Wellness takes its name from the ancient Egyptian word for lotus flower—a symbol recognized throughout that culture for its relation to rebirth and beauty. Thousands of years later, the wellness center works to keep this meaning alive by combining a holistic methodology with med-spa-quality equipment. Recognized for its facials by both CBS Local and CityVoter, Founder Stacy Webb's integrated approach has resulted in an impressive service menu that boasts an array of services, such as skin care, acupuncture, energy healing, and massage. Guests may indulge in skin-soothing facials that quench, detoxify, or soften surfaces or lose inches while relaxing in a contour body wrap. Those looking to minimize appearances of fine lines may opt for unique treatments such as dermaplaning for fine-hair removal or radiancy microphototherapy, which promotes natural healing through the power of light and heat energy.
Dr. Randel B. Wing of Premier Acupuncture Clinic, who's board certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, heads a staff who helps patients find balance and wellness through a range of holistic treatments. Acupuncture—insertion of fine needles at key points on the body—facilitates the flow of qi along energy pathways, bringing equilibriums thrown off by wayward somersaults back into balance. The clinic employs other traditional Chinese treatments, such as Chinese herbs, for an extensive list of maladies including addiction, arthritis, and multiple sclerosis.
The visit begins with a thorough consultation, during which Stoebner will skillfully assess all that ails you and devise a treatment that suits your individual needs. During the treatment, specific areas are strategically and painlessly targeted to address your current conditions of concern, rerouting your body's flow of energy and cleaning up its Qi, or "essential breath." Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine therapy that can not only alleviate immediate painful or irritating symptoms, but can also restore the body's balance and ability to heal itself in the future (learn more about how acupuncture works here).

Today, she's an acupuncturist and highly trained practitioner of Chinese medicine, but Peru native Maria Baraybar Lee began her diploma collection with a Ph.D. in marine biology. When she finally swam up to the surface, her research brought her together with AIDS patients who taught her about paying close attention to the mental and physical components that accompany the treatment of health challenges. Soon after, she would experience these challenges herself, when a severe car accident left her in intense pain assuaged only by acupuncture.
Lee was hooked. Further inspired by her mentor, Dr. Ron "Doc" Rosen, she graduated from the Colorado School of Chinese Medicine and spent more than 2,260 hours working through hands-on and classroom training. She is accredited by and a needle-carrying member of several professional organizations.
In addition to performing five distinct varieties of acupuncture, Lee unlocks the ancient secrets of herbs, cupping, and Chinese massage to keep patients balanced and healthy. When she's not treating clients and manatees in her private practice—where she also specializes in women's health, cosmetic acupuncture, and pain management—she's donating her skills to non-profit organizations.

Even as Sasha May pursued careers such as financial planning and real estate, her childhood desire to “make people feel better” always remained in her heart and mind. It took her daughter's diagnosis of a walking condition for her to reevaluate her decisions and obtain a Master of Science from the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine in order to take the leap into holistic healing. Now, Sasha is a licensed acupuncturist, helping people the way she knew she always could. Using a customized approach, Sasha conducts a thorough consultation with each new patient before beginning treatment. In the comfort of her cozy Impact Healing studio, she can incorporate essential oils and acupuncture to promote wellness or use tuning-fork therapy to foster noninvasive healing.
