The staff of Core Activated Rehab would likely agree with the old saying, “A little goes a long way.” Led by Dr. Jason Mareno, the chiropractic team encourages clients to take small steps and make minor changes to treat everything from injuries to migraines and stress. Most preliminary appointments begin with a thorough chiropractic checkup to determine if there are spinal misalignments, extra shoulder blades, or other potentials problems before the doctor diagnoses and devises a treatment plan. Such plans include sessions with the on-staff massage therapist or changes to dietary and lifestyle patterns. The crew also specializes in sport-specific injuries and treats amateur and professional athletes of all ages.
The Clinical Skin Care Center Med Spa currently operates under the medical direction of Dr. David Azouz, a board-certified plastic surgeon with more than 25 years of experience performing cosmetic surgery on the face and body. He and their staff perform cosmetic laser procedures that use radio frequency, light energy, and other technologies to target signs of aging on the face or body, as well as acne, acne scarring, and cellulite. The microdermabrasion treatments gently remove the topmost layer of skin to reveal softer skin, while also softening lines and fight acne.
Located inside the Shawn Kristopher Salon and MedSpa, Prater's Skincare and Laser Center is the brainchild of laser technician and aesthetician Erica Prater. She enlists the aid of Dr. Pirinelli, a Board-licensed anesthesiologist with experience in injectables, lasers, and other medical-spa treatments, to help improve clients' appearances. Using their slate of treatments, they help to banish body hair with laser hair removal, remove dead skin cells with microdermabrasion, and fade wrinkles with Botox injections or cinematic effects.
The smooth, black basalt traditionally used in hot stone massage has something in common with spa owner Mahealani Trepinski's career: they were both forged in Hawaii. But while these rocks were born in the island chain's famous lava flows, Trepinski had to journey there as an adult for the training that gives her skill set a distinctive Hawaiian flavor.
The island's influence can be felt in a number of A Hawaiian Touch Natural Healing Center and Spa Inc.'s spa treatments, from lomi massages?a Hawaiian practice based on ancient ritual and music?to organic facials and seaweed detox wraps. The spa's menu is diverse, offering far infrared sauna sessions alongside a wide array of massage modalities including craniosacral, sports, and medical massage. Trepinski, who is also an Integrative Nutrition health coach, even teaches other professionals how to perform reflexology, throw spa parties, and alleviate the pain of midnight burrito cravings.
Monica Rodriguez runs Unforgettable Faces with the intention of beautifying her clients’ skin while teaching them to maintain the results with high-quality skincare products. She partners her license in aesthetics with certifications in microdermabrasion and chemical peels. This explains her selection of intricate facials, including anti-aging and deep pore-cleansing sessions. She also provides body-wide waxing services.
Across the nation, Sona MedSpa's staff beautify a range of skin types with the gentle touch of Alma lasers. Sun damage, unwanted hair, and spider veins dissolve under the beams of these cosmetic lasers, which can also resurface complexions. Their lasers also power tattoo removal services, which free skin from unwanted ink. They've got Botox and dermal fillers at their disposal, too.
