Cheyenne Liao and Chang Jiang Hu, the [team] behind Chi Wellness, were both inspired to pursue Chinese medicine and holistic healing by family members who practiced the science before them. Cheyenne, whose grandfather was an internationally acclaimed practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine, specializes in medical massage and uses her training as a registered nurse to improve her patients’ physical and physiological wellness. Chan Jiang is a licensed acupuncturist, who worked alongside his father at the Beijing Tian Tan Acupuncture Research Institute, and now specializes in treating a variety of medical problems, injuries, and detrimental lifestyle habits. Together they treat everything from migraines and carpal tunnel to sports injuries, whiplash, and chronic pain using traditional Chinese medicine, which has been utilized for centuries in the treatment of chronic conditions. In addition to medical massage and acupuncture, which can help patients in the treatment of pain, smoking cessation, and weight loss, clients can also benefit from a comprehensive array of treatments directed at specific conditions, including massage modalities such as Swedish, prenatal, and trigger point therapy, as well as herbal medicine. But no matter the treatment, both practitioners believe that the body should be treated as a whole, and work to promote full-body wellness through their targeted services.
Aesthetics by Connie is helmed by a licensed clinical aesthetician with a background in biochemistry. For more than 13 years, Connie has treated clients with facial treatments, peels, and microdermabrasion. In her services—which also include oxygen infusions and eyelash extensions—she uses pharmaceutical-grade products from brands such as Dermalogica.
The aestheticians at Elume Medical Spa work to address skin's problems, including fine lines and blemishes, using advanced med-spa technology and meticulous traditional skincare services. The skin experts use products from brands such as Obagi and Physician’s Choice, which draw from natural botanicals to plump skin by boosting collagen production, drench skin in moisture, and close up pores with oil-busting acids and by feeding them sticky peanut butter. More advanced skincare solutions include IPL lasers and SkinTyte therapy to help minimize fine lines and eradicate signs of sun damage.
Each of the doctors of chiropractic and acupuncturist at Active Care Chiropractic & Acupuncture brings a different specialization to the treatment table: chiropractor Dr. Jong Hee Cho is knowledgeable in auto-accident injuries and posture correction; acupuncturist Hee Jin Kim uses a clean-needle technique to boost immune systems; and chiropractor Dr. Yongmin Lee’s experience heals sports injuries with an ART method. But regardless of their styles, each staffer aims to promote whole-body well-being with drug-free and nonsurgical treatments such as chiropractic, physical therapy, and acupuncture.
Japanese screens and soft music set the scene for collective healing in Jus Massage's community acupuncture room. In private chambers, licensed massage therapists knead away tension with 1 of 10 massage modalities, and afterward offer cups of tea to sip in the common area. The clinic's aestheticians perform facials with Dermalogica products, and give complimentary face mapping to determine different facets of skin quality.
For aesthetician Petra, caring for people is a calling. More than 25 years ago, she started her career as a radiologist and trauma-center worker in Germany. She eventually traveled to the United States and decided to focus her expertise in aesthetics by opening her own spa. From this boutique haven she continues to care for others—this time with a range of European aesthetic treatments.
At Petra's Skin Spa, she performs seven kinds of tailored facials using Guinot skincare products to even texture and tone. She can reduce the appearance of cellulite and banish toxins from the body with the help of wraps and scrubs, which she blends with Swiss aromatherapy oils and seawater ions. Given her medical background, Petra can even perform advanced med-spa services including laser skin resurfacing.
