Canadian Decompression & Pain Center has more in common with a haunted house than first meets the eye. Often, when a patient lies down on one of the treatment tables, it starts to shift on its own. Sadly for horror-movie fans, though, a computer controls the table, and its intentions are purely good. The spinal-decompression treatment—part of the centre's three-part neuro-decompression-therapy regimen—helps deliver fresh blood to chronically pained discs, working to strengthen and repair them over time. The doctors may even give patients an oxygen mask to breathe through during spinal decompression, which forces out even more toxins.

At 20 locations across the country, the Canadian Decompression & Pain Center provides this cutting-edge treatment. The staff's expertise doesn't end with pain management, however. The seasoned practitioners can also dole out eight med-spa services, including eyelash extensions, laser hair removal, teeth whitening, and injectable dermal fillers.

For the specialists at Enlighten Laser Services, lasers are not simply a beauty tool, but a powerful ally in the fight against some of the skin's most prevalent problems. At each of their locations, the staff calls on many forms of this noninvasive technology?from hair and spider-vein removal to cellulite reduction and skin tightening?to tone, sculpt, and brighten clients' bodies, bringing out their natural beauty.

The clinics also possess a knack for traditional skin care. Their on-site aestheticians know that every client's skin is unique, much like every snowflake's 12-digit identification number. They demonstrate this philosophy by customizing each treatment to suit the client's skin type, skin tone, and beauty goals. Before administering any of their facials, body-slimming laser services, or IPL acne clearance treatments, the staff consults with clients about their history and answers any questions.

Total Touch Skincare Clinic's aestheticians rely primarily on two gentle techniques to reveal smooth, youthful skin all over the body and remedy medical conditions such as rosacea. Beauty treatments ranging from nail care to massage incorporate products from the Dr. Hauschka skincare line, whose all-natural formulas strive to balance complexions and promote renewal with biodynamic, organic, and wild-harvested botanicals. Laser technology does double duty, stimulating changes at the cellular level to create a clear skin with an even tone and firm texture, and zapping veins and body hair attempting to mimic Stan Van Gundy's moustache without damaging surrounding tissue.

Gentle Touch specializes in nonsurgical and laser skin treatments, employing modern technology to banish signs of wear from sun-kissed facescapes. A trained epidermis expert conducts a skin analysis to identify damage on faces and necks caused by age, UV rays, and pet stingrays. The IPL photo rejuvenation facial then works to undo the damage with pulses of highly concentrated laser beams that safely penetrate skin to address damaged areas at their subcutaneous roots. The treatment can smooth skin, even colour, and stimulate new collagen growth to combat fine lines and wrinkles. Results can appear after one treatment, but technicians may recommend additional treatments for large or especially dark areas or to improve the look of bruised fruit. Patients may experience minimal discomfort in the form of a light snapping sensation.
