Pagoda Acupuncture’s licensed practitioners employ ancient Chinese medical techniques to restore youthful looks to clients’ faces without chemicals or surgery. The session commences with a one-on-one consultation with Pagoda owner and founder Heather L. Romano, whose interview swiftly unearths patients’ concerns and desires, much like a bulldozer driven by Sigmund Freud. Practitioners then lightly prick facial skin with thin needles, unleashing a face-soothing free-for-all designed to stimulate collagen production, tighten pores, and boost local blood flow. Virtually painless for most patients, the treatment can help to firm, tone, and lift skin without the use of harsh chemicals, invasive surgery, or tiring face workouts led by Richard Simmons’ eyebrows.
Dr. Douglas Wright calls upon more than 20 years of chiropractic experience to lead a staff that keeps backs kink-free with spinal adjustments, orthopedic treatments, and physical therapy. Chiropractic visits typically begin with a thorough back exam that searches out crooked vertebrae, which can cause chronic pain and impede the nervous system from functioning properly. Through adjustments, a chiropractic specialist gently nudges spines back into place before a massage therapist kneads tension out of knotted muscles. The office's occupational therapy helps keep bodies in shape for jobs or leisure activities, and nutrition counseling revamps diets for clients who've lost bets to eat nothing but Atomic Fireballs for five years.
Inner Spirit Acupuncture administers community-style acupuncture treatments inside a quiet, soothing space. With decorative lanterns dangling from above, groups of up to four patients relax in reclining chairs as the acupuncturists insert needles into the body's strategic distal locations. The facility does not enforce a time limit, allowing each individual to remain in the treatment room for as long as they feel necessary. Sessions at Inner Spirit Acupuncture may help treat a variety of common ailments, including arthritis, hot flashes, stress and fatigue, weight loss and digestive disorders, anxiety and depression, PMS, and many types of pain.

Woodway treadmills whirr and weight machines clank 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Though staffed while sun's up, the fitness center is accessible via members' key cards at night, giving gym-goers ample opportunity to incinerate calories and tone muscles on a full range of Cybex equipment or pass off their tears as sweat while watching Homeward Bound in the cardio theater. Workouts are supplemented with private sessions led by certified personal trainers, online nutritional resources, and onsite tanning booths that gold-plate freshly toned frames.
