A licensed therapist collectively fuels each relaxing treatment with years of experience. A wide range of modalities are blended to tailor services according to physical and mental needs, including medical and sports massage to relieve soreness and Swedish modalities to boost circulation and ease tension throughout the body. Additional modalities include injury massage, migraine-relief treatments, and specialized bodywork for infants, children, and teddy bears that sprained their shoulder in the dryer.
H3 Therapy's specialized hyperbaric treatment may be based on a complex scientific principle, but its main ingredient is simple: oxygen. First, the inflating chamber is infused with filtered air that pressurizes the immediate atmosphere. As the pressure increases, oxygen gently pushes its way into the client's bloodstream. According to the system's technicians, this oxygen boost helps the body heal and may even ease symptoms associated with autism, multiple sclerosis, and sports injuries. The chamber can be depressurized and opened from within, and it features a buzzer that occupants can push for help at any time. With these two exceptions, hyperbaric therapy is completely hands-free, so clients can spend the session winding down with a book or trying to connect with their spirit animal.
Dr. Thomas Young didn't have an interest in a career as a chiropractor until he became a patient himself. A car accident left him severely injured, which is why he has no trouble relating to patients at Lakewood Family Medicine. In need of musculoskeletal rehabilitation and a quick recovery, his clients can choose from methods such as medical massage, laser therapy, and physical therapy. Dr. Young also provides nutritional guidance, citing the unsavory hospital food he ate as he recovered from his injury as the reason for this branch of his practice.
Each massage at Wellness Day Spa incorporates a mixture of organic essential oils to aid relaxation and healing. During therapeutic massages, a blend made with peppermint, lemongrass, and eucalyptus helps to enhance circulation and relieve aches, whereas Wellness' detoxifying mixture encourages lymph drainage and healing. Those who have allergies or are made entirely of water and cannot mix with oil can opt out of essential oils during their treatments.
Licensed massage therapist Sang Ko believes that there's an intrinsic link between the state of the mind and its manifestation in the body. Drawing this idea, Sang customizes bodywork to the particular needs of each individual. Clients may solicit Sang for light-to-medium Swedish strokes or request firmer deep-tissue or trigger-point techniques to alleviate lower-layer aches. Sports massages are also available to improve range of motion and athletic performance.
Stylist Sunny Galaviz views hair as her canvas—which is appropriate because she's also a painter. At Davinci Salon and Spa, she swaps her brush and palette for professional hair products such as Matrix, Joico, and Wella color, and expresses her creativity through cuts, color, and texture services. Although she's an artist, she guides her wild side with professional training at Toni & Guy in Long Island and more than 20 years of experience.
