After performing more than 170,000 chiropractic adjustments for over 4,200 patients, it is no stretch to call Dr. Terry Smith of Smith Chiropractic an expert in his field. Dr. Smith practices a variety of chiropractic techniques including activator, Thompson Drop, and chiropractic biophysics to help align the spines of his clients and elicit the envy of jellyfish. They also offer decompression treatments to alleviate low back injuries, such as disc bulging and sciatica, or arm and leg pain. Smith Chiropractic were among the first chiropractic offices in Colorado Springs to adopt class-4 laser treatments for non-surgical pain relief, reduction of inflammation, and healing.
Aphrodite Skin Solutions rejuvenates complexions and restores a factory-fresh sheen to skin with a menu of facial, back, and body treatments. With their attention focused on balancing skin tone and fighting off encroaching furrows, the spa's aestheticians dole out advice on proper nutrition and aftercare techniques designed to holistically nurture the body. Microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels strip the topmost layer of dull skin to reveal the dewy visage waiting beneath, and back treatments combine skincare and massage to soothe workday stresses from slouching in chairs or hurdling obstructive cubicle walls.
As the stylists at Royal Salon Organic Care whittle away at unruly coifs, they eschew common ammonia- and paraben-laden chemical products in favor of natural, vegan Organic Salon Systems products. Under the leadership of owner Indre Roy, the experts wield these products while adding depth with highlights, razoring layers, and twisting tresses into updos for weddings or neck model auditions. Organic nail polishes also adhere to the salon’s philosophy, brightening fingertips after the nail technician draws on her background in reflexology to massage hands and arms. Extremities also get a treat in the form of homemade sea salt or sugar scrubs. Sugaring is offered for clients wishing to get rid of body and facial hair.
Laser light is a quick, painless, and effective method for removing unwanted hair. A long-pulse, high-energy laser emits a gentle beam of light that harmlessly passes through the skin and directly targets follicles, effectively treating unwanted hair. Unlike the lasers utilized by popular film hero and 2010 California gubernatorial hopeful Iron Man, these friendly beams are easy, comfortable, and treat hair follicles faster than other methods. Treatments are spaced out over a four-to-six-week interval, depending on skin type and sensitivity, and are good for hair removal on one of the following areas: the chin, upper lip, side burns, back of the neck, under arms, or bikini area.

Barbara specializes in deep-tissue massage and myofascial release, therapies that focus on rooting out entrenched tension, whereas Clint makes his clients' skin glow brighter than a lightning bug’s brief self-esteem with facials and scrubs.
