Doctor of Chiropractic Ashton Ashwar uses chiropractic treatments as a tool to improve his patients' overall quality of life by eliminating chronic pains or underlying causes of discomfort by correcting spinal imbalances. Treatments tackle issues ranging from work injuries and neck pain to herniated discs, sciatica, and migraines. In addition, the centers also offer corrective exercises, massage therapy, nutritional counseling, and stop-smoking laser treatments, which suppress nicotine urges, appetite, and anxiety.
During more than 15 years spent photographing models, athletes, and musicians, Rockstar Tattoo Removal founder Todd Todd often heard his subjects' tattoo-related complaints and ardent longings for ink-free skin. Interest piqued, Todd started to research the tattoo-removal industry, visiting facilities around the country and reading the ancient tattoo-removal secrets printed inside Bazooka gum wrappers. He found most existing tattoo-removal facilities uninviting, and set out to create a skin-restoring destination where social butterflies would be glad to touch down.
A relaxed atmosphere complete with rock and hip-hop music, jovial conversation, and a treatment chair surrounded by velvet ropes give Rockstar Tattoo Removal the spirit of an exclusive club rather than the sickly green aura of tattoo-removal centers set inside medical facilities or garden centers. The Candela Alex TriVantage laser targets tattoos with multiple wavelengths of light, causing even multicolored tattoos to fade, and can also be used to dissolve freckles or age spots on targeted skin surfaces.
The staff members at Gold Spa Foot Reflexology focus solely on the feet, but their purpose is to heal the whole body. Reflexology, an ancient treatment that dates back to ancient China, incorporates applied pressure to reflex zones on the soles of the feet, which are believed to be linked to internal organs. The therapists here offer one-hour reflexology treatments to stimulate self-healing, with added options of sea salt and hot stones in order to remove dead skin and release toxins.
Sneak Peek Ultrasound aims to "give love at first sight a new meaning." Their sophisticated, high-tech ultrasound machines provide 3D and 4D images of littles ones that give parents-to-be their first glimpse of their child smiling, yawning, or showing them the sign for "talk to the hand." Since opening in 2000, Sneak Peek's techs have performed more than 15,000 ultrasounds, which include pictures, videos, and audio recordings of the baby's heartbeat. Family and friends are welcome to attend appointments, which, if held after 14 weeks, can also reveal a baby's sex if the parents so choose.
