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. Adam T. Keres doesn't just practice chiropractics; he preaches it. From schools to corporations, he lectures to audiences on the importance of a healthy lifestyle and the path to well-being. At Jaguar Therapeutics DC, he puts these lectures into action by devising holistic treatment plans to not only reduce pain, but stop it at the source. These plans often fuse chiropractic adjustments and spinal corrections with a regimen of massage therapy, exercise, and nutrition counseling, using a suite of advanced technology including digital x-rays and the spinal-alignment device known as ArthroStim. Working together, these treatments can help clear lines of communication from the spine to every area of the body, thereby easing pain and improving health.
As Dr. Janice Lima-Maribona knows well, stress can wreck havoc on skin.

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.
