A wooden bench and potted flowers brighten the entrance to Family Chiropractic Care and Wellness, the practice where Doctor of Chiropractic Kevin Merlino and his team treat patients with holistic therapies and chiropractic care. Adjustments, spinal decompression, and deep-tissue laser therapy soothe chronic back pain, and customized massages keep muscles and ligaments comfortably loose. Acupuncture sessions help with a wide range of issues, including stress, weight loss, pain management, allergies, and even wrinkles.
An oasis of pampering and relaxation, Exclusive Day Spa offers a wide array of massage modalities, a bevy of aesthetic services, and emotional coaching. The bodywork experts train in massage techniques including Swedish, deep-tissue, and aromatherapy, which soothes the muscles and nostrils alike. Facials and peels cleanse skin and fight the signs of aging, whereas beauty injections and dermal fillers provide more dramatic youth-enhancing results. Their laser skin treatments target fine lines, acne, and rosacea, and laser hair removal and waxing banish unwanted stubble, helping patrons earn the coveted nickname "Smooth Operator."
Founded by a massage therapist, Elements Massage improves a client's overall health and well being using the restorative and healing power of massage. Clients personal needs help pair them with expert therapists trained in The Elements Way, which stresses the healing power of massage, active listening and responsiveness, and holistic, personalized massage experiences. They then use four levels of pressure and a blend of up to six modalities, such as deep-tissue, Swedish massage, and finger ballet, to create a customized massage. Their soothing kneads combat pain, loosen tight limbs, and disperse oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.
Diet may play a large role in digestive health, but it isn't the sole factor. Oftentimes muscles at the opposite end of the mouth—better known as the colon—get cluttered with lingering remnants of food that negatively impact not only digestion, but also overall wellness. That's where the trained colon hydrotherapists at New Era Wellness step in with colonics. By flushing intestinal hangers-on with warm water, they can ease issues ranging from constipation and gas to fatigue and extra pounds. Plus, the staff also offers nutritional counseling to fix digestion from the front end—not to mention a few purely pampering practices, such as body scrubs and massages.
A member of the Association of Bodywork and Massage Professionals, Janelle King draws on both eastern and western approaches to massage when alleviating her clients of pain. She specializes in hot stone, reflexology, and myofascial release, along with prenatal and postnatal massage. When she isn't soothing moms-to-be, she studies for her doula certification so she can support women during the birthing process. In keeping with her passion for both traditional and holistic treatments, Janelle volunteers her services at charity events to help raise funds and awareness for diseases such as breast cancer and multiple sclerosis.
