The Body Wrap Shoppe staff are used to hearing gasps once customers emerge from their casings to try on formerly too-tight clothing. Their hypoallergenic wraps strive to visibly subtract signs of cellulite, aging, and loose skin from both physiques and faces. They differ their treatments from traditional plastic wraps by relying on natural ingredients?delivered via swathes of porous bandages?rather than dehydration and supplementary bear hugs to achieve a slimmer look. Personal consultations also ensure that each guest goes into his or her cocoon feeling informed and cozy.
When it comes to relaxation, Lynn Principe is second to none. It's all because the licensed massage therapist knows that different techniques work for different people. If you're sensitive to firm pressure, she might alleviate your stress with the gentle, flowing strokes of a Swedish massage. Conversely, her deep-tissue techniques penetrate the outermost muscle layers to unearth hidden sources of tension. Lynn is even trained in a number of specialty modalities, such as reflexology, prenatal massages, and therapeutic stretching for clients who have been frozen in carbonite. A certified aesthetician, she also draws on organic products to create custom facials that tackle common skin problems such as acne and fine lines.
Too often, massages billed for their serenely relaxing nature are disturbed by the murmurs of other clients in the next room or in the hallway. Sandy Martinelli LMT, a graduate of Cortiva Massage Therapy Schools and certified in therapeutic massage and neuromuscular therapies, protects her therapy rooms from that kind of noise, but that's not the only way she creates a relaxing atmosphere. Her rooms are decorated in earth tones, such as shades of spring green, and she customizes the service for each clients individual needs. She invites clients to take all the time before or after sessions to relax, perhaps by mentally picturing sheep flying over a fence in a posh private jet.
Stress can check itself at the door when visitors enter Perfect Nails & Spa. That's because the beauty parlor's staff fosters a tranquil environment where clients can unwind with an extensive menu of relaxing services. Manicurists doll up hands and feet with vibrant Shellac nail polishes that protect against chipping, and massage therapists put an end to aches with flowing strokes and kneads that target sore areas. Meanwhile, aestheticians revitalize complexions with facials and embolden peepers with eyelash extensions.
With 20 years of experience under his belt, Dr. César A. Lara—alongside his team of board-certified physicians—catalyzes long-term weight-loss plans with a thorough assessment and fitness program. The program caters to the medical history of each patient with a customized diet and exercise plan that may be assisted by FDA–approved appetite suppressants or nutritional supplements if necessary. Patients may shed up to 50 pounds in the first 12 weeks, but results may fluctuate based on which planet you happen to be on. Personal trainers or solo gym sessions enhance the effects of reconfigured nutritional plans better than just doing the plan twice. Patients can continue to visit the American Society of Bariatric Physicians members for $65 per visit.
