A victim of painful, debilitating migraines, BreAnn had trouble concentrating in class and often missed school. She visited several doctors and neurologists who suggested prescription drugs to mask her pain, but her parents refused to turn to medication. Years flew by without a helpful diagnosis until BreAnn's dad?injured from a biking accident?saw a chiropractor for his own pain. That same chiropractor was able to solve the mystery behind BreAnn's misery: a badly misaligned cervical vertebra, sustained during a car accident at the age of five.
Fast-forward to today. BreAnn?s peers now know her as Dr. Moddes, the lead chiropractor at Trinity Health Center. Given her history, it's no surprise that she specializes in auto accidents, back and neck pain, and spinal injuries. During initial consultations, Dr. Moddes clearly and carefully explains the causes and effects of pain, injury, and naps in cramped overhead storage compartments, before outlining possible treatment options, such as manual adjustments, physiotherapy, mechanical traction, or electrical stimulation. For instances of chronic pain, she might also prescribe a session with a licensed massage therapist, or perhaps acupuncture. Though Dr. Moddes fields all concerns regarding the spine, Trinity Health Center also provides auxiliary services, from nutritional counseling to microcurrent facials.

Just a Tease recently underwent its own beauty transformation when the boutique salon was revamped with a darker color palette, more Zen-inspired decor, and even a new name, Salon Beauremy. But even though the beauty haven's image has changed, its staff's dedication to providing custom hair and skin services has not wavered. In fact, the center's stylists still reach for high-quality haircare products, such as sulfate-free Enjoy and sensitivity-friendly HBL products, as they style freshly trimmed and colored tresses. In the spa area, aestheticians enhance facials with skin-clearing products from PCA Skin, Circadia, and Janssen, and use mineral cosmetics from GloMineral and Advanced Mineral Makeup to enhance facial features with perfectly matched foundations and eye shadows. And to cater to all their patients, they offer a variety of specialized facials that prevent and treat skin conditions with cutting-edge skincare treatments such as microcurrent facial toning, epidermal leveling, and oxygen-infused facials. On the way out, beauty-goers can peruse the salon's updated art and clothing boutique stocked with apparel and accessories from Tigerlily, and framed with original artwork from local artist Renee Bau.
Former chief resident in plastic surgery at University of Cincinnati and member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Khang N. Thai taps into a medical fountain of youth, rejuvenating weathered visages with the latest aesthetic medical procedures. Each Botox treatment begins with a personal consultation that determines if the patient is eligible for injections, before giving them advice on whether smooth of crunchy peanut butter makes the better facial cream. All skin-spackling candidates will then receive a series of injections that can help smooth wrinkles for areas such as crow’s-feet or between the eyebrows. Any patients not eligible for the procedure will receive a full refund.
