At Vitality Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic Vaibhav Patel gets to the root of pain caused by car-accident injuries, sports injuries, and headaches with natural, hands-on services. During visits, Dr. Patel combs through family history before sleuthing over spinal columns in search of bulging disks, signs of poor posture, and vestigial dorsal fins. The doctor checks nerve function and muscle activity with a computerized EMG and a thermography unit, takes applicable x-rays, and lays on dexterous hands for adjustments. During hydrotherapy massages, patients recline in private rooms as a hydro-massage table kneads muscles with roving jets of water underneath a waterproof barrier, keeping bodies dry and coaxing out tension and lodged water wings.
Although Pro Massage Health Solutions' licensed massage therapists are each trained in multiple modalities, they all specialize in one thing: customizing sessions to suit their clients' needs. They accomplish a truly tailored experience by mixing and matching strokes from their arsenal of approaches. For clients who want a relaxing visit, the staff may focus on Swedish maneuvers. Deep-tissue kneading and the sports modality, alternatively, may be in order for those afflicted with aches and pains. Therapists also specialize in treating chronic pain and discomfort with myofascial trigger-point therapy, which works to ease bodies at specific points of tension. The therapists happily cater to people with hectic schedules. They offer late appointments and readily render on-location massages by visiting patients’ homes, offices, hotels, and hotel pillow forts supported by stacks of room-service food.
Dr. Carmen April and the attentive staffers of The Foot and Ankle Healthcare Center wipe toe canvases clean of encroaching foot fungus with laser treatments. During the fungus-freeing session, a specialized laser deploys a cascade of light rays across the infected nail bed, which can be caused by athlete’s foot, excessive perspiration, or foot massages from mushrooms. Each heated beam quickly shimmies beneath the keratin surface before throwing a one-two punch that smashes fungi invaders into a dissipating anime dust cloud. The quickly administered treatment painlessly targets all 10 toes without damaging the surrounding skin or nails, and results in healthy, sandal-ready feet.
In business for more than 50 years, England's Hair Salon & Spa has amassed an impressive staff of stylists, colorists, and aestheticians. Whether restyling or recoloring tresses or refreshing looks via facials, waxing, and pedicures, the staff ensures women and men turn heads during special events or strolls through Easter Island. Clients can also watch pent-up stress and tension swirl into the ether during relaxing massages performed by a licensed massage therapist.
A few wisps of smoke from an extinguished candle hang in the air, along with the lingering fragrance of aromatic oils and the soft strains of jazz or nature sounds. One of the licensed massage therapists at Mona Lisa's Massage & Wellness has completed another relaxing session, easing muscle tension and stress with modalities such as hot-stone therapy, pregnancy or sports massage, or reflexology. The center's practitioners operate in an intimate and tranquil four-room suite complete with a mani-pedi station. In the couples room, pairs enjoying a Yin + Yang massage nosh on chocolate-covered strawberries and discuss how to install electric handlebar warmers on a tandem bike.
The crew exfoliates skin with coconut-lime-scented scrubs and detoxifies bodies with wraps that include a session in the steam sauna. They also aim to clear complexions with 10 different anti-aging facial treatments and peels.
