When interviewed by Holistic Health magazine in 2006, Dr. Scott Denny proclaimed, ?There is a great synergy when conventional medicine and oriental medicine are applied together.? This holistic harmony is readily apparent at Integrative Hospital Associates, where Dr. Denny has devoted his life to treating acute and chronic health issues with an approach that integrates the healing philosophies of both Eastern and Western medicine. Together with his personable team of chiropractic physicians, nutrition experts, and massage therapists, Dr. Denny works tirelessly to enhance clients' well-being through acupuncture and an array of other therapies designed to help combat addiction, disease, and habitual sleepsurfing. Oriental-medicine techniques, such as herbal medicine and the Gua Sha healing process, work alongside services based in conventional science, such as cold-laser therapy for the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.
Among other accolades, Dr. Denny is the 11-time recipient of the Continuing Education Excellence Award in Pain Management and has served as the President of the American Academy of Pain Management and the head of acupuncture services at Holy Cross Hospital Feldman Center for Optimal Health. The compassionate doctor has been featured in local news media for his ?multifaceted approach? to treating chronic pain and is also the inventor of Dodai Fusion Therapy, a combination of ancient Japanese manual therapy and meridian-based acupuncture techniques.
Under the leadership of spa president Sandra Vascones, the corps of therapists and beauticians at Doors to Heaven keep clients looking their best with aesthetic skills that they regularly brush up in continuing education classes. Body-buffing services include waxing and cavitation, which helps patrons shed pounds by dissolving fat. Those looking to unwind can opt for massage, which deploys modalities as Swedish massage and deep tissue massage to dissolve stress that has accumulated in the body after too many nights spent shouting at nearby owls to be quiet.
John and Danielle Moore made spines the family business. After seven years in practice together in North Carolina, the husband-and-wife chiropractic team relocated to Florida, bringing along an expertise gained from treating thousands of patients. At Live Well Chiropractic, the Moores utilize a whole-person approach to seek out the source of discomfort and bring about full-body wellness or bottom-half jigs.
Inside MODA Hair Design & Spa's modern, strikingly white studio, visitors witness the bustling assembly line where physical beauty is created. While clients relax in leather salon chairs, stylists renovate hairdos with everything from cuts and hair dyes to Keratin smoothing treatments and fanciful updos. At the nearby nail station, manicurists transform fingers and toes into fashion accessories using glossy nail polishes. Aestheticians can also escort guests to private treatment rooms, where they wax away unwanted eyebrow or body hair, smooth out cellulite with body wraps, or administer European-style facials. MODA's team also includes a licensed massage therapist whose magical hands can pull silver dollars from behind clients' ears or make pain disappear with deep-tissue kneads.
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.
