Looking good and feeling good should go hand in hand, which is why the staff at Dante Salon & Wellness Spa has compiled a list of services that go beyond beauty to help treat full-body health. As stylists smother strands in products from Goldwell and Paul Mitchell, the in-house chiropractor stays busy addressing the needs of those suffering from chronic pain, using tender techniques that can include neuromuscular therapy or sport-specific stretches. Meanwhile, aestheticians coddle skin in Image Skincare professional products that soak into pores to remove dirt and exfoliate away dead skin cells before they have a chance to rise again as undead skin cells. Those looking to thwart wrinkles at the source can schedule a consultation with the onsite aesthetic-medicine physician, who can recommend injections of Botox, Juvéderm, or Restylane or write a prescription for Latisse for those looking to fill up sparse lash lines.
Dr. Timothy S. Mountcastle, medical director of Radiance Medspa Fairfax and chief of plastic surgery at Inova Loudoun Hospital, urges the Radiance Medspa staff to examine their clients? diet and lifestyle when evaluating their skincare needs. His team takes a big-picture approach to wellness and helps clients with long-lasting, youth-boosting treatments, including microdermabrasion, teeth whitening, massage, and Botox. Before appointments, patrons can unwind in a tranquility room where troubles melt away like a pat of butter on a piping-hot dragon tongue.
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.
Glenn, a certified medical massage therapist, is a big believer in non-invasive techniques to help manage pain and stress. Many clients bring a doctor's diagnosis to the studio so Glenn can concentrate on specific body areas and complaints, while others come in for med-spa treatments or procedures drawn from Eastern medicine. Of special note: ETPS (or electro-therapeutic point stimulation), a needle-free alternative to acupuncture that stimulates precise points with low doses of direct electrical current to release endorphins and recharge the tiny remote-control cars that carry antibodies throughout the bloodstream.
Though certain hair types may look similar to the untrained eye, the strands are actually unique in their texture, thickness, and type. At Appearances Salon & Spa, stylists begin each visit with a consultation to determine the proper cutting and coloring techniques for the client?s hair type. They also offer eyebrow threading, wherein they use different threads for specific strands. In addition, the team offers spa services such as nail treatments, henna applications, massages, and waxing for clients who secretly wish to become candles.
