Sircle Pain Clinic's wellness and pain professionals understand that chronic pain can have more than one cause. It can be the product of muscle strain, work-related stress, nerve damage, sleeping posture, or any combination thereof. As such, these complex issues can't be solved with a simple, one-sided approach, such as taking pain medication or convincing yourself you're a robot that does not feel pain. Instead, staff members use the Sircle program, drafting a measurable milestone recovery path based on the client's health history and other information they find during consultations and video otoscopy assessments. The resulting treatment plans address issues one step at a time and could include weekly visits, neuromuscular re-education, and relaxation exercises. During these programs, clients could achieve their personal goals over a span of 12 weeks or more, whether it be overcoming muscular pain or boosting their overall health with improved nutrition.
As a graduate of Parker College of Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic James C. Martell knows his way around the human spine. He draws on his impressive knowledge to keep his clients' musculoskeletal systems in alignment with adjustments and hands-on manipulations.
Dr. Martell goes a step beyond chiropractic, though, with acupuncture treatments that redirect the body's flow of energy. He has been certified in the traditional Chinese needling techniques for more than a decade, and he continues to use them to help clients who are fighting migraines or need to be convinced that they aren't actually a balloon.
Dr. Roger Andersen, D.O., Dr. Carson Robertson, D.C., and Eric Robbins, P.T. know that eliminating pain isn’t a one-size-fits-all process. Rather, it’s a one-on-one process, requiring individual time and attention to root out problems at their source. At Alpha Chiropractic & Physical Therapy, the team focuses on providing that personalized care to patients of all ages. Whether clients require the soft-tissue manipulations of the Graston Technique to treat muscle and tendon injuries or spinal adjustments for chronic back pain, the staff’s services work to return them to prime caber-tossing form. Additionally, laser treatments are available to treat pain and inflammation by accelerating tissue repair and cell growth and increasing blood flow to speed the body's self-repair.
Aesthetician Summerr Reyna doesn’t focus on pampering her clients. Rather, the owner of GlamSkin takes a results-oriented approach to reversing sun damage, fine lines, and dehydrated skin. But her treatments aren’t meant to be uncomfortable either. Summerr uses a gentle touch when massaging Skin Script products into the epidermis during custom facials and removing body hair with Tamara’s Professional Body Sugaring wax. Even her most advanced treatment, micro-phototherapy, works to minimize discomfort while a combination of heat and light enters the skin, aiming to stimulate collagen production.
Summerr also uses her purple-and-black treatment room to host her applications of Advanced Mineral Makeup. Infused with anti-inflammatory ingredients, these cosmetics are able to soothe the skin while simultaneously providing full coverage that masks redness.
At Images Partner Studios, master stylists, colorists, aestheticians, and massage therapists help patrons look and feel their best in an intimate, private setting. After cuts and colorings, stylists add a complimentary blowout for a finished look. Skincare staff are certified in several specialized treatments including laser services, advanced Rhonda-Allison peels, and HydraFacial resurfacing treatments. For an aromatic-massage session, therapists offer the Massage Flame Experience, in which a lit candle transforms first into warm massage oil, then into a gift that guests take home, and finally into a cozy digs for homeless genies. Staffers also handcraft airbrush spray tans that last about five to seven days.
Brandi Nuttall, the owner of Dolce Salon & Spa, must believe that you can never have too much of a good thing. Expanding upon her first and second Dolce locations, which measure in at 12,000 and 13,000 square feet, respectively, she opened the third hub in 2007, and now there is a fourth. The 30,000-square-foot behemoth built in 2007 houses 62 styling stations, 21 spa rooms, 14 pedicure thrones, a makeup counter, a brow bar, and manicure stations. All four locations boast the same services—though at different scales—as well as men’s hair and spa treatments and bridal styling. Unlike hotels that charge extra for doorknobs and oxygen, the salons have a generous streak. They provide hairstyling services to those who donate to Locks of Love, spa services to local foster children, and hair clippings to areas affected by oil spills.
