Though massage is in Massage Therapeutics, INC 's name, it certainly isn't the only service offered at the versatile center. Bodywork therapists offer a range of neuromuscular and relaxation therapies—including salt scrubs, prenatal massage, and inversion-table sessions—designed to target misaligned muscles and chronic pain. Stress melts out the tips of toes during a foot-acupressure treatment that includes an essential oil soak and signature honey foot-indulgence scrub. A mini ionic footbath or aromatic Swedish massage can give clients the chance to sample a shortened foot-pampering service before they commit to a luxurious 60-minute or longer treatment, much like screening a film trailer before acting out the whole movie for your coworkers. The center also offers Pilates classes, personal-training sessions, and CPR/AED certification.
Atlanta Wellness and Weight Loss’s team of doctors watches over patients as they slim down, ensuring safe transformations during weight loss. Their plans focus on nutrition rather than intensive exercise; shots of B12 and all-natural Vital Nutrients supplements enhance overall health, and a custom nutrition plan saves patients the hassle of interrogating frozen dinners. Their wellness services extend beyond weight loss, encompassing chiropractic adjustments and other physical therapy.
Rather than using the latest makeup tricks or flattering outfits, the technicians at A Better Me Laser Lipo Clinic beautify their clients with laser technology. Their lipo-laser treatments noninvasively liquefy fat in the hips, thighs, and other hard-to-tone areas to create streamlined silhouettes. They can also use laser treatments to boost collagen production, tighten aging skin, or permanently reduce unwanted hair growth.
Since her days as a high-school basketball and track star, Dr. Benita Stephens has understood the importance of maintaining a healthy diet and weight. But it wasn't until she was a trained obstetrician and gynecologist with her own practice that she saw the damaging effects excess weight has on the body. Feeling inclined to help her overweight and obese patients, Dr. Stephens sprung into action, calling upon her extensive training in bariatric medicine to establish Ciao Bella Medical Center and Spa. And it was this determination and passion for helping others that gained Dr. Stephens praise from MadameNoire and earned her the 2012 Business Superstar Award and inaugural cover from PYNTK magazine.
From within Ciao Bella's office, Dr. Stephens and her friendly staff help clients shed pounds and gain confidence through customized weight-loss programs, which can include tailored exercise plans; B12, HCG, and lipotropic injections; appetite suppressants; and meal replacements. But before programs are constructed, an initial consultation reviews patients' health history, determines their current state of health with a physical exam, and analyzes their body composition. Ciao Bella's staff also tighten and tone the skin on the face with facials, microdermabrasion, and Botox treatments.
EOS Medical Spa's physicians partner with certified massage therapists and technicians to rejuvenate patients' faces and bodies. The staff specializes in services for women with darker or ethnic skin tones and administers custom facials and laser treatments to leave all complexions glowing. Techs harness laser light for skin resurfacing, wrinkle reduction, and hair removal, and the light can address spider veins and cellulite when asked politely. The spa’s massage therapists add a healing, human supplement to technology-focused services. Their expert hands can administer modalities ranging from Swedish and sports for soft-tissue injuries to reflexology for aching feet.
Blue is everywhere here, from the cerulean-, azure-, and aquamarine-stained windows to the very name of Blue MedSpa. Dr. Landon McLain, medical director of the beauty haven inside the Westin hotel at Bridge Street Town Centre, helms a team of registered nurses, aestheticians, and physicians who focus on restoring youthful appearances. They use advanced equipment such as SmartLipo to reduce the appearance of cellulite, IPL laser machines for photofacials, and six types of dermal fillers to send fine lines scurrying beneath floorboards. Blue also provides traditional salon and spa services with Pureology and Redken products, as well as skincare products from iS Clinical and its own signature line. Regardless of the service, each med-spa staffer takes a holistic approach to treating clients to ensure their beauty goals are accomplished.
From offices in the US and Canada, laser techs at International Laser Therapy Centers work to empower people to live more healthfully. Using only the power of low-level lasers, they work to help clients lose weight or quit smoking by aiming the light beams at specific areas throughout. This works to increase endorphin levels to create a sustained calming effect, which may decrease the urge to overeat or smoke due to stress, as well as make it easier to overcome temptation during diets or nicotine detoxes. Staffers also work to give excess weight the boot via noninvasive infrared body wraps, which target deep tissues with thermal heat in the hopes of dissolving the body’s store of fat and marshmallow fluff. Furthermore, a 24-hour support line works in conjunction with in-spa treatments to motivate clients to reach their goals.
