At Michigan Cosmetic and Laser Dentistry, Dr. Mastis plies her toothy trade with the confidence of more than 20 years of practice and regular work as a lecturer and clinical adviser on advanced dental techniques. The office maintains its commitment to up-and-coming technologies by furnishing an arsenal of sophisticated devices and techniques such as digital 3-D impressions, Lumibrite whitening, and 21 dental lasers capable of reducing pain during oral procedures and playing games of tag with fidgety tongues. As new cosmetic products, such as Lumineers and Invisalign, add a healthful sheen and straightness to smiles, dentists help maintain overall oral health with preventative-care methods such as digital x-rays and VELscope imaging.
The relaxation squad at This Is It Salon and Spa believe just as strongly in cosmetic trends as they do in the medical benefits of massage. Though the salon’s service menu may seem polarized at first glance, the staff manages to pull it all together by creating proper pairings powered by high-end products from Aveda, Essential, and It&ly.
In the spa’s private rooms, therapists perform facials and body treatments, as well as 10 types of massages, each of which aids in the release of muscular tension and pain. Massage modalities range from deep-tissue and hot-stone varieties to carpal-tunnel or pre- and post-natal massage. The therapists also perform therapeutic massages to ease pain caused by chronic illnesses. The spa has been approved to accept insurance and physician referrals for medical massages. Regardless of the selected modality, the spa staff happily executes both in-studio and on-location sessions, traveling throughout the area to perform makeup and nail services for events ranging from weddings to stuffed-animal tea parties.

The clinical team at Chiropractic Associates of Michigan does much more than simply maintaining its patients' spinal alignments. Rather, practitioners use chiropractic and therapeutic techniques to promote overall health. Chiropractor Lanny Lipson, also an applied kinesiologist, studied with the man some consider to be the "father" of applied kinesiology, George Goodheart, DC. In practice, Dr. Lipson uses diagnostic tools such as dynamic range-of-motion testing to facilitate the repair of soft-tissue injuries and gauge someone's ability to do the Electric Slide. He also specializes in correcting nutritional imbalances and designing custom diet plans for weight-loss success. His extensive knowledge and experience earned him a ranking as one of the top 10 chiropractors in Warren by RateMDs.com and a 2012 Talk of the Town News Customer Satisfaction Award.
Dr. Lipson's team includes fellow chiropractors Linda-Golladay Merchberger and Christina Coxon as well as a reflexology expert, who has been practicing for more than two decades. To enhance their wellness plans, their patients can stop by The Healing Store for Standard Process supplements, books about holistic healing, and natural personal-care products.
