Pangaea Massage owner Clare Wilson, a licensed massage therapist with more than 12 years of well-kneaded experience, tends to the flesh of clients by wielding Swedish, deep-tissue, and sport-related strokes. In the integrated Swedish massage, Wilson combines several Scandinavian methods, including long, rolling strokes and the gentle humanism of filmmaker Ingmar Bergman. The deep-tissue treatment delves deeper in order to tenderize muscles and stimulate blood flow, while the sport massage addresses issues born out of repetitive movements and never-ending penny hunts. Customers put themselves in Wilson's hands amid diaphanous curtains, warm lighting, and tranquil earth tones.
As a graduate of Columbia University's School of Dental Medicine and the former director of dental implantology at Lutheran Medical Center, Dr. Gerald Cohen confidently tends to his patients' long-term oral health while also renovating smiles with the latest cosmetic treatments. Along with the expertise of its staff, the sophisticated practice fights off decay and beautifies precious enamel deposits with help from high-tech gadgets such as a 3-D cone beam scanner, which accurately analyzes mouthscapes with a significant reduction in radiation, and digital impressions that negate the need for messy tooth trays or tooth-fingerprint kits. Routine exams and cleanings guard against cavities and oral cancer, and Dr. Cohen's onsite dental lab speedily constructs personalized implants and veneers to ensure a perfect match for each patient's mouth. As a testament to Greenwich Cosmetic Dentistry's commitment to technology and patient comfort, staff provide each guest with an iPad to occupy them as they wait and offer sedation dentistry for nervous patients to allow them to sleep through their treatment and awaken on the first day of spring.
Peggy, of Peggy?s Hair Salon, has spent decades in the business, both cutting clients? hair and learning the latest techniques via Redken and Well Professionals institutes. Her team of stylists also attends advanced classes so they can expertly imbue heads with spiral waves and ombre color effects. Their steady hands trim men?s beards and cut the hair on squirming kids. And one of the stylists also pulls double duty as a licensed aesthetician by offering ear piercing and facial waxing services. In addition to hair-care products available for sale, the salon displays trendy purses and necklaces available to purchase or rent by the lifetime.
Neon lights, multiple arcade games, and patterned wrap-around couches. This is not the interior decor of a Las Vegas hot spot, but rather, the inside of The Stein Dental Group office. This aesthetic is just one of the methods that Dr. Michael B. Stein—a Tufts University graduate and former dentist in the U.S. Navy Dental Corps—employs to help ease clients' nerves as they come to the office for routine cleanings, implants, root canals, and orthodontic procedures. Dr. Stein works alongside eight other dental specialists and a multilingual staff, all of whom help to create a relaxing experience by listening to each client's dental concerns, thoroughly explaining each procedure, and even providing IV sedation to hyperventilating shadows.
At Kids Care Dental Group, the dentists make kids comfortable by using a variety of gentle, dental techniques. Toddlers and teenagers of all ages frequent the office, where skilled dentists accomodate their needs in a comforting environment. Screens on the walls and ceiling let little patrons play video games and watch movies to help them relax during their visit.
The dental defenders at Stamford Dental Group keep chompers healthily effervescent and stave off all manner of mouth-menacing maladies. During an exam, these trained tooth technicians will meticulously inspect for any traces of health hazards, including gingivitis, oral cancer, or long-stuck popcorn kernels growing into popcorn trees. Then they’ll explore oral ecosystems from all angles with a series of bitewing x-rays and an innovative Cone Beam CT scan machine, which snaps three-dimensional digital images in mere seconds, significantly reducing radiation exposure, as well as the risk of fidgety molars prematurely breaking their pose. After the exam, a thorough scrubbing of enameled surfaces leaves teeth ready to pleasantly shine during dates, wedding photos, or Mr. Ed impersonation contests.
