The board-certified medical duo of LaserDoc, Dr. Bruce E. Thompson and Irina Abovsky-Akkerman, sweep away strands and bulges during physician-designed laser skincare treatments that use the HarmonyXL and AccentXL systems. Clients can begin their skin-clearing journey through two sessions of laser hair removal, a process that saturates unwanted follicles with the HarmonyXL's targeting light beams to lessen hair visibility and negate new growth. Through the Accent system, patients can bid adieu to lax skin and cellulite with a dual dose of nonsurgical laser treatments that tighten connective tissues. The treatment helps freshly taut body covers reduce visible fat volume and increase surface tension to deflect misaimed paper airplanes.
Jenny Crissman is a licensed acupuncturist and herbologist, and pretty good at making peanut-butter sandwiches. During the visit, Jenny makes a full assessment of a patient's medical history, from a sprained ankle in the fourth grade to the back injury resulting from a banana encounter on the set of a cartoon. Based upon each individual history, she gives a variety of diet, nutrition, and herbal recommendations. What follows is the acupuncture treatment itself, when painless, sterile, and hair-thin needles target specific points along the body's energy meridians, a process that can help with all manner of ailments, from chronic pain, headaches, and allergies to stress, depression, and fatigue.

At Bay Area Bodywork, Tia Monroe applies the knowledge she gleaned while attending the National Holistic Institute. Before she opened her own practice, she honed her skills at fitness centers and spas. Today, this certified massage therapist soothes aches and subdues stress with her own unique blend of Swedish, shiatsu, and deep-tissue techniques. Her therapeutic massage sessions combine Swedish and deep-tissue strokes, and her aromatherapy massages blend the aforementioned modalities with essential oils to invigorate the senses. Tia also warms up basalt river stones before using them in hot-stone massages that loosen curmudgeonly knots caused by the words of unlovable curmudgeons.
As their name implies, at Angel Feet Reflexology, they specialize in one thing: reflexology. Their specialty treatment is a foot reflexology session that includes a complementary massage of the rest of the body. The treatment begins as clients dip their feet in a Japanese foot bath before a therapist begins to focus on the upper body including the head, face, and neck. They then turn their attention to the feet and legs, using the ancient art of reflexology to stimulate self-healing and energy flow. Sessions finish by focusing on the back, waist, and shoulders with acupressure massage or with a deep tissue treatment on a massage table.
