The staff at Allvera Body Wrap & Wellness Center's Dublin location and recently opened location in Grandview is dedicated to balancing body and mind. To do this, aestheticians, acupuncturists, and massage therapists offer a slew of aesthetic and holistic services, including hot-stone therapy, acupuncture, facials, infrared sauna sessions, and signature herbal body wraps that are soaked and heated to 150 degrees. The center also pampers clients with its use of high-end products including bareMinerals and HydroPeptide skin care lines.
Dr. Mary Beth Luca’s skincare expertise has led to a career path that meanders between the clinical and academic worlds of dermatology. Though formerly an assistant professor of dermatology at The Ohio State University, the board-certified dermatologist now dedicates her full attention to patients at Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery of Dublin, where she and her trained aestheticians help to keep skin healthy and youthful.
The dermatology practice—which specializes in treatments for malignant melanoma, skin-cancer surveillance, and connective-tissue diseases—carries the equipment necessary for advanced skincare treatments that target health and aesthetic concerns. Among these advanced products and devices are the body-slimming CoolSculpting system and skin-rejuvenating products from Obagi, Jane Iredale, and Clarisonic. Dr. Luca and her team also cleanse complexions with exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments that uproot spying devices implanted in pores.

Acupuncture is an ancient discipline involving the insertion of ultra-thin, sterile needles in order to reduce pain and help the body heal itself. In addition to increasing circulation and reducing inflammation, these treatments promote holistic health by jump-starting the immune and lymphatic systems and by boosting serotonin levels throughout the body. The clinic's laser systems can also treat people during weight-loss and smoking-cessation laser therapy.
Daniel, the licensed acupuncturist behind Ohio Wholistic Acupuncture, is spreading the word. Carrying with him the skills he gained while studying in Los Angeles and Seoul, he works to introduce people to the benefits of acupuncture, a healing art he believes can help to heal and prevent pain essentially without any side effects. Using sterilized, single-use needles as fine as a human hair or 1/187th of a pie, Daniel targets acupressure points, which can help to rechannel the body's energy flow and potentially relieve pain, lessen stress, and improve overall health.
After graduating from Southwest Acupuncture College, board-certified acupuncturist Thomas E. Turpen, MS, R. Ac., continued his training through a World Health Organization program in Beijing. Those experiences inform his approach at Arlington Acupuncture Clinic, where he unburdens patients of pain and treats musculoskeletal disorders with acupuncture and oriental-medicine-based procedures. Along with traditional acupuncture techniques, Turpen practices styles such as Japanese, Chinese, and Korean acupuncture.
He also relieves guests of ailments through more holistic means, such as reiki, medical qi gong, and medical hypnosis, which can help patrons overcome allergies more effectively than swallowing a grain of pollen and making it a part of you. Joel Jones, a licensed therapist, further assists clients by soothing their muscles during massages.
Some time ago, a martial-arts teacher bestowed the values and methods of Eastern healing practices on Chris Aul, the founder of Columbus Acupuncture & Wellness Center. Chris, who struggled with illness in his younger years, called upon the lessons learned during those days in China to eventually become a licensed acupuncturist and massage therapist. Today, he utilizes this knowledge as he rebalances clients with acupuncture techniques. He also dispenses nutritional advice designed to aid in recovery, support ongoing wellness, and discourage the consumption of icky-tasting, yellow Lego blocks.
