Stretch Zone mixes up humdrum fitness regimes with a new type of workout, one that can enhance physical performance, muscle symmetry, and flexibility. It consists of table stretching—but not the kind that you're probably familiar with. By working with the autonomic nervous system, Stretch Zone practitioners take muscle extension to a whole new level. Atop their specially designed tables, comfortable straps systematically position, stabilize, and isolate the parts of the body that are not being stretched. This allows the stretched muscle—and the person on the table—to completely relax, extending further than the central nervous system would normally permit. Besides helping rejuvenate and invigorate the whole body, the sessions can also alleviate rheumatic pain for everyone from seniors to adults.
Formerly a med spa, Soluna MD shifted gears in 2008 to focus more on the “med” aspect of the med spa, eschewing treatments whose job was only to pamper in favor of treatments that produced visible results, such as sclerotherapy, Botox, IPL facials, and chemical peels. But instead of letting its new medical services turn the office into a cold, clinical place, Soluna MD retained much of its med-spa comforts and ambiance. Patients relax atop padded massage beds during such treatments as SolunaSculpt SmartLipo Ultra, which permanently removes fat cells with a combination of ultrasound waves, lasers, and tiny incisions.
Before any treatment, patients can grab complimentary coffee and the occasional cake and cookies. They can also take advantage of consultations with cosmetic surgeon John W. Chang to learn more about Soluna MD's services or to discuss the advantages of adding a third ear to the elbow.

Dr. Sean Simon has won three consecutive Patients' Choice Awards for his work as a double board-certified plastic surgeon. But if you ask him what he's most proud of, he'd likely say his skill as a listener. Dr. Simon takes the time to consult with each potential patient, hearing their aesthetic goals before suggesting a tailored treatment plan and setting realistic expectations. From there, he and his team perform procedures that might include breast augmentations, tummy tucks, tattoo removal, or the injection of dermal fillers. He can also recommend nonsurgical alternatives to invasive methods, such as laser treatments designed to smooth cellulite or reduce wrinkles, or laser hair-removal treatments, which use the new technology of the Vectus to banish unwanted hair. But no matter what the desired outcome, Dr. Simon and his staff strive to provide lasting, natural-looking results that leave their clients feeling their best.
As Dr. Janice Lima-Maribona knows well, stress can wreck havoc on skin. That's why the 13-year medical veteran puts as much value on keeping her clients relaxed as she does on her high-tech treatments. According to the doc, her whole medical practice is predicated on the concept of peace of mind. To that end, she has cloaked the med spa in cool, soothing earth tones, and she marshalls her naturally warm disposition into a friendly, attentive form of bedside manner. The end result is an space that feels a lot more like a day-spa than a doctor's office.
