Dale Bartoszek has been a registered nurse for more than 30 years, but it wasn't until 1995 that she discovered the power of natural healing. Disenchanted with Western medicine, Dale and her son received BioSET treatments for their allergies with resounding success. Spurred by this victory, Dale went on to embrace alternative-healing theories from around the globe, earning her chops as an advanced BioSET practitioner, health and wellness coach, energy healer, and reiki master on the way to founding Allergy Sense and Wellness. Now, she soothes bodies back to a healthy homeostasis using natural, noninvasive techniques that take mind, body, spirit, and spirit animal into account. The service that inspired her journey, BioSET allergy elimination, releases pent-up energy in a three-step process that recalibrates the body to ignore allergens. The rest of her treatments, including reiki massage and life coaching, also work to rebalance bodies and souls that have been thrown off by stress or falling repeatedly from a balance beam.
Kelly Hannigan, RN at LaJollaNecklift.com is a California and Arizona registered nurse and graduate Doctor of Naturpathic Medicine. She was trained by Allergan, the manufacturers of Botox, during the initial clinical trials of Botox Cosmetic in 1999, and is a veteran in the world of skin-smoothing injections. To promote the growth of the body's stem cell production of collagen synthesis, Kelly and a fellow colleague created the The Vampira Facial and PRP- Natural Facelift. For more than 14 years her aesthetic repertoire has expanded to include skin resurfacing, chemical peels, and a bevy of other skin-clarifying techniques that leave complexions baby soft and adult durable. She created NewportNeckLift to focus on smoothing rough-textured and draping skin around the neck, which can lose elasticity due to age, weight loss, sun damage, or other factors. This treatment encourages collagen regeneration and skin-tightening and can be done in one sitting with little downtime.
The difference between a thermage treatment and a chemical peel at Aesthetically Pleasing Medical Spa is substantial?one uses radio frequencies and the other uses Obagi and SkinCeuticals products?but both are noninvasive. The staff of certified aesthetic nurses prefers these sorts of treatments to plastic surgery for almost any cosmetic need, whether it?s removing wrinkles, hair, facial lines, spider veins, or too much sunscreen. Monitoring the treatments is medical director Dr. Diana Hoppe, a board-certified OB/GYN physician dedicated to women?s health. Dr. Hoppe?s guidance and the staff?s care helped give the spa enough votes to be named Best Medical Spa by The San Diego A-List in 2012.
Dr. Carl A. Powell, board-certified surgeon and founder of The Cardiff Medical Spa, is so trusted in his field that his fellow surgeons often choose him to be their practitioner when they have to go under the knife. He also trains his fellow surgeons in new procedures and maintains privileges at multiple area hospitals. His services are not limited to surgical lifts, tucks, and augmentations?he also oversees an array of laser and noninvasive beauty treatments with medical aesthetician Chelsea Papin, who has six years of experience and performs all of the waxing services. Papin uses a hard wax from Boston that is gentle and great for sensitive skin.
It's not all colon hydrotherapy at Inner Bliss Rejuvenation Center?it's just their specialty. Called one of the city's top ten local spas for alternative healing by Discover San Diego, the spa offers many plans for detoxification, including nutritional consultations, whole-body cleanses, and holistic lifestyle education. Juice cleanses can flush out built-up toxins and restore the digestive tract, and colonics address the same problem from the opposite end. All treatments take place in a soothing, Eastern?influenced environment, overseen by specialized technicians.
While working as an ob-gyn, Dr. Karen Lee noticed a trend in her patients. They complained about age spots, spider veins, and other issues that were more aesthetic than medical. Deciding to use her medical expertise to help women boost their confidence, she opened Synergy Advanced Medical Aesthetics?a clinic dedicated to health and beauty.
Treatment rooms are stocked with high-quality tools, including Syneron and Cutera lasers, which precisely execute vein therapy, hair removal, and body contouring treatments. The trained staff also augments skincare, such as facials and peels, with SkinCeuticals and Rhonda Allison products.
