Emerald Coast Chiropractic’s Florida-licensed massage therapists assist aching bodies with a variety of massage modalities that soothe away stress in a private room. The skilled therapists know how to augment chiropractic adjustment with deep-tissue techniques that target a specific joint, muscle, or muscle group. Pre-treatment, staffers spend time with each client, addressing any concerns and educating on the benefits of massage. A Swedish kneading increases circulation and blood flow as oil, cream, or lotion smoothes over skin with long, fluid strokes that deepen relaxation. Trigger-point therapy eases tension and boosts muscular function, and neuromuscular therapy addresses specific problems discovered during a postural assessment and telepathic Q and A.
For 24 years, Karin Petersen has been transforming looks with her signature precision cuts. In addition to precision cuts, the Redken master colorist specializes in corrective color, highlights, and lowlights, as well as in creating natural-looking length with extensions. She also readies brides for their big days with hair and makeup, whether at the salon or onsite at the bounce house hosting the ceremony.
La Renaissance Salon welcomes waiting guests to cozy up in the lobby’s cushy armchairs before they head back into the chic chocolate-toned salon, which features ornately framed mirrors and antique-style armoires at each styling station. Karin has her pick of the salon’s premium products, selecting from brands such as Redken, Pureology, Moroccanoil, and Wella.
At Edge of Paradise Day Spa, a team of licensed massage therapists and facial specialists work in concert to help clients look youthful and confident. Luxurious spa packages such as the Paradise include 60-minute Swedish massages, mani-pedis, and facials that leave clients feeling completely refreshed. The spa's licensed aestheticians can also efficiently wax away unwanted hairs or cover clients in detoxifying mud during inch-loss body wraps.
The glam experts at Beverly Hills Day Spa wield noncomedogenic Jane Iredale mineral cosmetics and Anakiri BioEnergetic skincare products during facial, waxing, nail, and body services. Nine facial treatments each tackle a separate skin condition, from a Natural Revelation peel-off mask that kidnaps impurities to a microdermabrasion procedure that repels fine lines and age spots. Teal walls wrap around the spa's lacquered manicure tables, where digits soak before donning new shades of polish, and two black pedicure thrones massage clients as they gaze upon the room's flat-screen TV or into the soul of the houseplant in the corner. Andean mineral mud hugs hides during the It's a Wrap body treatment, and skilled mitts manipulate pressure points in the feet and hands during the one-hour reflexology treatment.
The SlenderSmiths staff works to unwind clients’ minds as their bodies do the opposite. Nondehydrating body wraps, ranging from premium mineral wraps to electrotherapy, help boost weight-loss efforts with immediate slimming results, as the wraps attack cellulite. Along with body wraps, the staff performs nonsurgical face-lifts more effective than Pee-wee's scotch-tape face regimen. Other spa services include massages, facials, nailcare, and waxing.
Doctor of Chiropractic Shawna Hogan’s biggest complaint about health care is that “patients are so often rushed in and out of doctors’ offices today without ever feeling that they are being listened to,” she says. “My objective is to go the distance so that every patient feels that he or she is a priority.”
That attitude has helped her clinic, Regatta Chiropractic and Laser Center, flourish with a variety of patients, including multiple physicians, children, and pregnant women. When she’s not administering chiropractic treatments, such as manual adjustments, massage therapy, and cold-laser therapy, she’s helping clients slim down with Zerona noninvasive laser body contouring. In addition to making patients feel confident that they could slip through jail-cell bars any time they want, the Zerona treatments help patients struggling with back pain attributed to excess weight.
