The staff at Alexandra's European Skin Care Spa keeps its aesthetic armory stocked with technology ready to aid in beautifying missions. The Formostar infrared body wraps help patients break down fat cells without undressing, and the two wands connected to the Beautiful Image Model 900 send zaps of microcurrents at facial wrinkles, unwanted body flab, and underperforming orchestras. A selection of diamond or crystal tips pair with the spa’s FDA-approved microdermabrasion system to fend off blotches and blemishes, and treatments, such as the oxygen facial, target complexions with high-pressure gusts of oxygen and mists of nutrient-rich serum that opens pores and revitalizes surfaces. The spa also schedules traditional treatments, including massage, waxing, and Bronze Biologic spray-tanning sessions. By stocking up on products from Image Skincare and Circadia by Dr. Pugliese, they can augment each of their treatments and never have to answer the sphinx that guards each drugstore's beauty aisle.
The trained staff at Millennium Hair Salon and Day Spa aim to treat each patron as "our only client." To accomplish this, they lavish guests with personalized attention and deploy high-end products such as Redken, Dermalogica, and Bare Escentuals across a medley of services. Stylists stand guard over 10 salon stations, where they snip strands or perform free hair audits to evaluate hair's texture, condition, and financial records.
Robert, the sports- and medical-massage therapist, tends to aches with a soothing mix of trigger-point and myofascial modalities, while Mitri, the resident makeup artist, accentuates cheekbones with mineral products. Whether tending to hair, skin, or muscles, the staff creates a soothing ambiance and puts metamorphosing clients at ease with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
As you walk up the palm-tree-lined pathway toward Chiropractic Boulevard, carefully landscaped red, pink, and violet flowers nod their heads in the breeze, setting the stage for what is likely to be a very relaxing visit. Bright, metallic-hued koi swim languidly in a rock-edged pond near the entrance. Past the reception area, with its cheerful yellow walls and sleek leather armchairs, you will come across an earth-toned treatment room. It’s here where Doctor of Chiropractic Russell Chow, who has been in practice since 1999, specializes in active release techniques—a deep muscle and connective-tissue therapy designed to reduce motion dysfunction, scar tissue, and nerve entrapments.
Meanwhile, in the massage-therapy suite, guests lounge on 500-thread-count sheets while listening to calming music. Flickering candles and fragrant aromatherapy sticks enhance the tranquil scene, and a woven room divider provides an ideal spot for superheroes to change quickly.
Lime and mint walls accentuate white paper lanterns hanging in Dublin's Synergy Nail Spa, where a team of aestheticians and manicurists flutter about, sprucing up the digits and countenances of clients. Manicures and pedicures cascade across a menu of services, boasting a long-lasting Shellac mani that shrouds nails in bright CND polish alongside a paraffin wax treatment that leaves hands as smooth as a jazz quartet in a roller-skating competition. A hydropeptide facial imbues parched façades with natural antioxidants, and eyelash extensions augment peepers with synthetic lashes that boost flirtatious flutter for up to eight weeks. To lengthen locks, highlight dull coifs, or redesign head topiary, Dublin's Synergy Nail Spa's stylist will wield her skills and an overturned stool at wild manes.
At Widenbaum Chiropractic Center, Jon Widenbaum, DC and his team combine chiropractic care, physical therapy, and massage to alleviate pain and promote better health. Dr. Widenbaum's degree in clinical nutrition informs his approach to wellness, which is both neurological and metabolic. He searches for the underlying stresses and ticklish spots that compromise the nervous system and uses brain-based therapy and other neurological exercises to ferret out physical causes of discomfort. Dr. Widenbaum is proficient in various adjustment techniques and, as a state-appointed disability evaluator and qualified medical examiner, uses the precise Gonstead method to address whiplash and other auto-accident-related injuries. His associates have several specialties, including Dr. Melinda Roman, whose Webster-technique expertise allows proper treatment for pregnant mothers and pediatric patients.
The crew has created a welcoming vibe in the treatment rooms with soothingly earth-toned walls and inspirational bronze art. Kids stay occupied in the reception area, which features a school-bus-shaped play station with lumbar-reinforced seating.
