Dr. Joel Gutierrez and his staff at Gutierrez Chiropractic don’t just adjust spines: they realign lifestyles to promote long-term health. Each time they meet a new client, they provide screenings and consultations to spot potential causes of future health issues, be they bad posture or a curved spine. After identifying these potential hazards, they also prescribe diets and exercises to help clients deal with their individual health challenges. True to the business’s name, the team supplements all recommendations with hands-on treatments, utilizing a blend of chiropractic techniques, massage, and physical therapy to keep bodies both healthy and hearty.
Licensed acupuncturist Jean Dao Chung didn't just open Healthy Green Acupuncture on a whim. First, she earned her master’s degree from South Baylo University School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, became licensed by the state of California, and traveled to Beijing to apprentice under some of the most respected professionals in the field. Healthy Green Acupuncture opened its doors in 1990 aiming to offer traditional Chinese-medicine treatments including acupuncture and herbal therapy. Backed by 5,000 years of tradition, Dr. Chung now alleviates conditions as diverse as gastrointestinal problems, endocrine disorders, and insomnia.
At Babyface Skincare Studio, aestheticians specialize solely on one section of the body: the face. Their facials create healthy, glowing complexions; some of the facials even use machines, such as the firming gold-charged electrodes used during the 23K Golden Spoon facial. In other cases, facials rely solely on acne-fighting cleansers and soothing moisturizers. The studio also offers eyelash extensions, to further pamper newly brightened visages.
Skincare is J&S Beauty Inc.'s specialty. Owner and trilingual beauty guru Susie Yu helms a staff of eight, including licensed aestheticians and massage therapists who relax and rejuvenate by blending an all-natural philosophy with the latest in safe cosmetic technologies. Classic facials keep pores clean and healthy, whereas other treatments—such as microdermabrasion, derma-therapeutic sessions, or LHE laser whitening—focus specifically on reducing wrinkles, acne, or pigmentation. Body treatments, on the other hand, such as Thermo Cool help slim waistlines by toning muscle, burning fat, and smoothing cellulite.
Soft, neutral colors permeate a decor that marries tranquil tones with clinical sensibilities. Private treatment rooms remain clean and orderly while enticing patrons with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and some even boast showers to rinse away sweat built up in the steam room and the remnants of pre-appointment food fights.
The aestheticians of Slim Beauty Center believe in the power of feeling good in your own skin. To that end, they offer a variety of treatments to beautify the face and body, fusing both Western innovations and ancient Chinese medical philosophies. The facial treatments, for example, range from diamond microdermabrasion to luxurious caviar facials. Body treatments focus on creating slimming sillouettes with treatments such as ultrasonic liposuction and relaxing the entire body with volcanic-hot-stone therapy.
