In her quest to relieve clients' chronic pain, Dr. Shawnda Gross of Natural Body Works LLC embraces the intersection of Western chiropractic care and Eastern medical philosophy. A board-certified chiropractor and chiropractic acupuncturist, Dr. Gross believes in the importance of using minimally invasive procedures to address pain while also targeting underlying structural and energetic imbalances. With the help of manual and instrument-based chiropractic techniques, she bolsters neurological function by restoring alignment along the spinal column. Her acupuncture treatments, meanwhile, jump-start the body's natural healing processes with thin needles or laser heat trained on key energy meridians, easing the pain caused by anything from sciatica to constrictive bubble-wrap clothing. Similarly, the center's massage therapists help ease skeletal, muscular, and neurological aches with specialized modalities that locate and treat trouble spots.

At Island Tan?s three locations, clients can achieve an all-over bronze through the sunless medium of their choice. The staffers at all three spaces aid customers in choosing one of five levels of UV-tanning beds?including high-pressure and standup beds?and the accompanying lotions best suited to their skin types. Some locations boast UV-free tanning options in Mystic Tan booths or airbrush spray-tanning stations that darken hides with Norvell solutions. They also book red-light therapy sessions, which are designed to fade stretch marks and reduce fine lines formed from trying to win staring contests with the sun.

At Skin Solutions, located inside Rio Salon, the staff has an express set of goals: to reduce the signs of age and get rid of unwanted hair while impacting their clients' day as little as possible. To these ends, registered nurse Kathy LeFever leads an aesthetic team through the use of Botox and noninvasive lasers, filling out wrinkles and zapping unwanted hair from head to toe. And the combination of these two treatments is indicative of the larger trend that all the aestheticians follow—pairing pampering services with medical-grade technology. Facials and peels, for instance, offset IPL facial treatments and micro-pigmentation cosmetics, which render eyeliner that lasts up to five years, by which time everyone will have CGI eyeliner.
