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.
At Thai Yoga massage, a team of skilled massage therapists specializes in improving overall wellness with a variety of holistic treatments. The cornerstone of their treatments, traditional Thai massage combines soothing strokes with yoga positions to help release tension and increase vitality throughout the body. The staff also promotes benefits of Thai yoga massage beyond physical wellness, such as mental benefits including improving concentration and creativity, and psychological effects such as relieving anxiety and boosting inner energy levels. Additionally, nutritional counseling and personal training sessions help people determine the root of their bodily complaints, and LED light therapy uses a rainbow of colors to activate skin growth and reduce the appearance of blemishes and wrinkles. Thai Yoga Massage can also help patrons plan trips to Thailand and switch to using ionized alkaline water for drinking, cooking, and filling their fish bowls.
Cheyenne Liao and the team at Chi Wellness were inspired to pursue Chinese medicine and holistic healing by family members who practiced the science before them. They combine Western and Eastern medical therapies to treat everything from migraines and carpal tunnel to sports injuries, whiplash, and chronic pain.
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, the practitioners believe that the body should be treated as a whole, and work to promote full-body wellness through their targeted services.
At Je'Suis Beauty & Health Spa, visitors can rejuvenate and relax with a wealth of holistic wellness and skincare services. Here, licensed massage therapists help heal and de-stress clients with a range of massages, such as deep-tissue, lymphatic drainage, and reflexology massage, and certified aestheticians soothe skin with spa facials and body wraps. Ionic foot baths, meanwhile, use gentle electric currents to detox the body and bring benefits such as improved circulation, pain reduction, and lightning bolts that shoot from the fingers, while a hybrid infrared sauna and thermal massage bed helps fight cellulite and relieve pain by elevating the body's surface temperature.
The breadth of Taschler Spine & Rehab's list of alternative treatments makes it easier for doctors of chiropractic Jennifer Lee Taschler and Kevin P. Ward to do their jobs. That's because, depending on their patients' needs, they can mix-and-match treatments to create a level of personalized healthcare normally only obtained by having a hospital wing named after you. A particular patient, for example, could complement their deep-tissue massage with therapeutic exercises, spinal decompression, e-stem, therapeutic ultrasound to relax their muscles, or nutritional supplementation. Drs. Taschler and Ward stand by the motto of "Got pain? We have the answer!" They offer traditional chiropractic work which they can augment with therapeutic pillows, lumbar ice packs, and heating pads.
At Bela Luz Health Salon, which derives its name from the Portuguese words for “beautiful light,” wellness specialists harness the power of light-based technology and detox treatments to instill a sense of wellbeing from the inside out. The techs coddle mainframes in herbal and mineral body wraps, which sculpt sleeker shapes while ousting toxins through the lymphatic system. Infrared light shares the stage in a duo of treatments, soothing muscles alongside jade rollers in sauna massage beds and reversing wrinkles while hides soak up UV rays during skin-rejuvenation tanning. Additionally, Bela Luz’s skin savants utilize LED light to chase away fine lines and monsters during DermaKinetics and LED photo facials.
