Dr. Alexis Bergan-Guzman believes that alternative medicine can treat health issues ranging from basic stress to terminal illnesses. Her diverse background, including a master's in medical science and certifications in massage therapy and holistic bodywork, guide her staff in performing a range of health and wellness treatments. Chiropractic adjustments return joints throughout the body to their full range of movement so that heads can once again rotate 360 degrees. Massage modalities range from reflexology and hot-stone massage to the energy work of reiki. Acupuncturists insert slender needles 1/5 the width of standard medical needles into specific points across the body to relax and stimulate physical systems. Nutritional counselors help clients customize diet plans or interpret recurring dreams of asparagus.

Surrounded by wicker, Indonesian art, and soft music, Amnesia Therapy Center & Spa's licensed massage therapists unwind painful muscle knots and stressed minds with one of two healing massage modalities. Swedish massages employ several styles of expansive and ebbing strokes to relieve tension, mellow the muscles, and restore free-flowing fluency to the toxin-dispersal chutes of the lymphatic system. During effleurage, the hands smoothly circle the skin like epidermal ice skates. The petrissage and tapotement strokes knead and knock on pressure points in the human hide, and friction strokes untie the knots in the shoelaces of muscle fibers. The vibration stroke goes all "cell-phone setting during a ballet" on the back and the limbs to get blood and muscles moving. Alternatively, therapeutic deep-tissue treatments focus on releasing tension from the innermost layers of tissue as therapists apply firm pressure to mash uncomfortable muscle-potatoes into supple submission.
Spa comforts, clinical care, and attention to fitness intersect inside of KMC Rehabilitation & Aesthetic Center. Aestheticians and massage therapists infuse their work with medical training as they revitalize the skin through facials, masks, and nonsurgical weight-loss therapies. Modalities such as deep-tissue, reiki, and tui-na massages can be focused on issues pertaining to those rehabbing from injury or suffering from stress and tension. In addition to a fitness room stocked with medicine balls and exercise bikes, the rehabilitation center guides its clients toward relief and recovery through electro stimulation, ultrasound, and therapeutic massage.

IV nutrition therapy. Hyperbaric chamber. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) anti-aging therapy. If an ambitious sci-fi writer invented a med spa floating around outer space, she might describe it with words like these—but Bonsai MedSpa and Cosmetic Surgery, with its vernacular of advanced equipment and treatments, are anchored firmly on spaceship earth. The medical aestheticians—led by a licensed, board-certified medical director—put technology at the center of their work to treat clients’ skincare concerns with a variety of noninvasive procedures. Take one of their high-tech implements: a facial skin scanner. By using its black lights or filtered UV lights, technicians can amplify the visibility of skin issues that don’t normally reveal themselves under standard visible light: sun damage, blocked pores, or pigment disorders, to name three.
Along with their decidedly 21st-century way of detecting epidermal maladies, the staff can treat them with a long and varied slate of services. Microdermabrasions, chemical peels, and hydrafacials revitalize skin with little to no downtime for smooth, glowing complexions. Alternatively, several minimally invasive cosmetic surgeries are offered, such as facelifts. It’s a spa, though, after all, so the team can also simply help clients relax by rendering massage therapy, and it’s particularly aimed at mitigating pain from injuries.
