Specializing in neuro-musculoskeletal rehabilitation—the treatment of injured nerves, muscles, and bones—Dr. Quoc Nguyen and his spine-savvy staff perfect postures and alleviate bodily discomfort with a vast array of hands-on treatments. After discussing concerns and treatment options during the consultation, Dr. Nguyen thoroughly surveys spinal regions, testing reflexes and flexibility while removing marionette strings. Patients may then opt for their choice of treatments, such as a spinal adjustment or soft-tissue manipulation, before soothing muscle miscreants with a relaxing 15-minute hydromassage. Alternately, the neuromuscular massage sends a certified therapist's hands into the body’s deepest contours and subterranean tissue, delivering deliberate strokes to roll out chronic pain due to injuries, repetitive stress, and carrying your car to work that morning.
At Blue Waters Holistic Center, licensed massage therapists and holistic health savants reinvigorate beleaguered bodies within private treatment rooms. Therapists incorporate nourishing clay masks and exfoliating salt scrubs into many treatments to infuse skin with the radiance of an octogenarian’s birthday cake. The spa draws upon products by Éminence, Thalgo, and d’vine due to their organic extracts, and also relies upon cutting-edge equipment such as infrared saunas and electromagnetic stimulation to alleviate muscle pain and mental stress.
The expert laser technicians at Pines Total Health Center evict unwelcome body fur with the help of noninvasive laser light pulses. Hair-removal treatments begin with an assessment, during which a depilation specialist determines which level of laser light to use based on the client's chosen target areas, the skin's condition, and its taste in pop music. Fuzz fighters looking to deforest small areas, such as upper lips (a $675 value), chins (a $799 value), or underarms (a $900 value), relax as concentrated light beams ease across target areas, safely penetrating skin to target strands at the root.
Under the supervision of a physician, the technicians at Sunrise Laser & Hormone Institute beautify bodies with a variety of noninvasive, high-tech services. They remove hair from virtually any skin type with the Alma Soprano laser, whose cooling mechanism keeps skin surfaces so comfortable that many patients compare the treatment to a hot-stone massage. To reduce sagging skin, the Alma Soprano also uses true laser technology to tighten skin in the arms, neck, face, and stomach. To reduce cellulite and wrinkles caused by attempting to spell kohlrabi, staff members call on the radio frequency and magnetic pulses of non-invasive systems. Their service menu also includes laser body-slimming treatments and bioidentical hormone-replacement therapy, along with body contouring, chemical peels, and facials.
