The husband-and-wife team behind Wellness Spa on 5th Avenue knows firsthand how debilitating toxins can be. Bobbi Thompson attributes allergen sensitivities and weight challenges to her childhood mercury exposure from amalgam fillings and pesticides. Now a registered nurse and colon hydrotherapy practitioner, Thompson has dedicated her life to healing herself and others. Her spouse, Jerry Besing, can attest to her passion. After suffering a major health challenge in 2003, he became increasingly interested in detoxifying treatments, and took a wellness-coaching class at The School of Integrative Healing, directed by Thompson. He is now trained in services ranging from cellulite reduction to lymphatic drainage.
Each relaxing, impurity-targeting treatment takes place within a quaint, Victorian-style house. The crew also sells nontoxic pet products that keep dog, cats, and cherished pet rocks healthy without harming the environment.
The staff at Reveal Zerona Laser Body Slimming harnesses FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During sessions, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistlines, backs, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time. The staff suggests that patients can boost results with healthful eating habits, daily exercise, and regular hydration. Like sumo-wrestling costumes, caffeine and alcohol decrease the procedure’s potency.
Armed with seven years of experience in the healthcare industry, Aspiring Laser Renewal owner and founder Lonnie Beard helps clients reach their individual skin-renewal goals with personalized laser services. With the help of laser-treatment expert Dr. Jerald Searle, the center's staff harnesses a diverse arsenal of light-based technology, wielding IPL devices to rejuvenate skin and remove varicose veins, MedLite C6 lasers to erase tattoos, and powerful, follicle-banishing equipment to remove unwanted hair. Before appointments, clients can kick back in the sleek waiting area amid large plants and framed pieces of art depicting the comic-book villains foiled by the specialists' benevolent laser beams.
Guided by a licensed medical director, the team of certified laser technicians at Hellenic Laser Spa helps men and women refine their complexions with an array of skin services. Harnessing noninvasive light waves from diode, yag, and alexandrite lasers, team members prune unwanted body hair, even out pigmentation, alleviate acne, and blast toenail fungus. Radio frequency, infrared light, CO2 fractional, and Botox and Juvéderm injections iron out facial wrinkles that lead to sagging skin, crow's-feet, and being mistaken for a painting of an ancestor. The facility also boasts a team of massage therapists ready to smudge away stress with soothing kneads during Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages.
Led by Doctor of Chiropractic Jake Simpson, the Zerona-certified team at LoHi Lipo Laser targets stubborn fat deposits during noninvasive laser slimming treatments. As clients recline on a treatment table or levitate in midair, low-level-laser diodes pass over the skin, sending light energy through fat-cell membranes and causing them to break down. Sessions come with neither the risks nor the downtime of surgery. Multiple appointments may be required to yield optimal results.
The clinic's menu of services also includes traditional chiropractics, massage, acupuncture, holistic nutrition, and schvitzes in the infrared sauna.
At Comfort & Joy Wellness Spa, a team of aestheticians and massage therapists restores clients’ balance of tranquility, health, and beauty with ayurvedic treatments and organic products. Heated herbal packs, drizzles of warm oil, and the sound of whales singing Kenny G usher in peace during the Shirodhara ritual. Moroccan salt-glow body scrubs burnish skin with Dead Sea minerals and tangerine essential oil for dewy complexions. Staff members also perform European-inspired services with Epicuren and suki skincare products, SpaRitual vegan nail lacquer, and natural hair-coloring lines.
