Doctor of Chiropractic Jenni Ricker, a graduate of Palmer College, opened The Health and Wellness Clinic with the goal of helping people heal by offering a collaborative approach to natural medicine. Together with a team of licensed massage therapists, acupuncturists, and a naturopathic physician, Dr. Ricker cares for patients during all stages of life. Before birth, prenatal massage and chiropractic care ease the burdens of mothers-to-be and babies alike. As children grow, Dr. Ricker helps promote good posture, improve spinal health, and reduce strain with adolescent chiropractic services. Adults enjoy a full suite of treatments including medically managed weight loss, traditional Chinese medicine, and chiropractic adjustments.
The old slough-and-buff technique has no place at Pediworx, where licensed nail technicians trained in European methods and tools treat clients to the latest in foot- and nailcare. The spa, which doubles as both a nail salon and podiatry office, infuses modern technology with custom care to not only primp nails, but also to solve common ailments, such as ingrown nails, athlete’s foot, and Nixon-shaped calluses. Guests can relax at any of the two locations—including spots inside the Harbor Square Athletic Club and Seattle Athletic Club—as the team also treats both hands and feet to spa-like treatments topped off with shiny polish.
Dr. Rebecca Long didn’t always want to be a doctor, but family ties drew her into the profession. At her sister Dr. Lara Long’s graduation, her father delivered an inspiring commencement address that included a story about how chiropractic helped to heal an infant. In that moment, Rebecca realized that she could help just as many kids by becoming a chiropractor, and, three weeks later, moved to California to start at Life Chiropractic College West.
Today, along with colleague Dr. Michael Groves, the Long sisters practice chiropractic medicine out of their eponymous clinic. Their services range from spinal correction to nutritional counseling. They perform these services for patients of all ages who suffer from sports, auto, or pogo-stick injuries. All three doctors share a passion for volunteering and bringing chiropractic to foreign countries, and together they hope to one day open a clinic in Africa to help children suffering from AIDS.
North West Med Spa’s skilled technicians lure inner radiance to the skin's surface with a range of custom beauty services, from body wraps and sugar waxing to light-powered photofacials. A complimentary skin analysis precedes each facial treatment, allowing aestheticians to measure the extent of sun damage, wrinkles, and thorny rosacea gardens before proceeding. Rejuvenating DermaQuest and G.M. Collin products, along with the undulating paddle of the Multiderm skin-exfoliation system, assist them as they craft custom treatments to promote healthy, glowing complexions. Among the spa’s other noninvasive skin procedures, VelaShape body-contouring treatments buff out discrepancies in tone and Botox injections erase evidence of sustained squints or frowns.
Owner and aesthetician Cortney Moody draws on more than a decade of experience to share her passion for skincare through custom treatments performed with natural botanical products and essential oils. A blend of products determined by a thorough skin analysis swathes faces to fight aging, reduce acne, or ward off dead skin cells. Her collection of facials fight specific skin concerns and add-on treatments employ ingredients such as baobab oil to reduce fine lines or vitamin C to revive ho-hum skin. The extreme lip treatment softens chapped pouts, and a collagen eye treatment unpuffs puffy eyes and sends dark circles to the space between Saturn's rings.
Spanning more than 150 locations and six states, LA Tan's beautifying services polish pallid epidermises into shining, bronzed statues, and brighten smiles with whitening treatments. A Level 1, 2, or 3 booth tan glows warmly with UVB rays, stimulating the body's production of vitamin D and burnishing epidermises to a brilliant sheen. UV-free spray tans, such as Mystic Tan or VersaSpa sessions, quickly glaze outer skin shells into glistening hues without exposing hides to the sun's harmful rays or pitiful knock-knock jokes.
