Elements Massage fends off unnecessary medical procedures with soothing techniques that trigger the body's natural healing abilities. Clients are paired with therapists who assess their specific aches and health conditions. 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.
When he was a young child, Doctor of Chiropractic Jonathon Mainieri's asthma could only be calmed by medications or the occasional trip to the hospital. However, after a trip to the chiropractor, his symptoms began to slowly and steadily improve. Now presiding over his own practice, Dr. Mainieri treats patients head to toe with the same holistic approach as well as some newer breakthroughs. A computerized nerve scan helps the doctor compile a complete medical history for each client and select the appropriate treatment from a trio of services. Tiffany Taylor soothes tense musculature with gentle massage, and Julianne Ambrosia blends acupuncture with traditional Chinese medicine to encourage the body's natural energy flow. Dr. Mainieri performs gentle adjustments using state-of-the-art chiropractic techniques and gives clients that extra inch necessary to be tall enough for the best roller coasters.
Steve and Kim Weiner take pride in their ability to mesh medical-grade wellness treatments with a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere. The co-owners began their careers as an aesthetic equipment salesman and a paramedical aesthetician respectively, giving them extensive professional insight into the role that technology can play in rejuvenating clients? appearances. Their spa embraces some of these technologically based treatments, including infrared body wraps, teeth whitening and hair removal with cosmetic laser systems, and lipotron skin-tightening sessions, which use radio frequencies to firm skin tone and broadcast warning messages to crow?s-feet. The center also offers basic spa treatments, such as massages and deep-cleansing facials.
Adhering to the spa-wide belief that natural ingredients and noninvasive treatments yield the best results in skincare, Velvet Day Spa pampers clients with a variety of services—ranging from facials to spray tanning—done with organic products. The skilled aestheticians also use their advanced industry experience to pamper clients with modern techniques and procedures including permanent-makeup applications, nonsurgical face-lifts, and microdermabrasions. Soon after opening the spa in 2007, owner Jeanette Ryan created an organic line of products called Velvet Skincare, which is counterintuitively not designed for people with textile skin.
Former martial-arts coach Aleksandr Serdyuk employs his corporeal awareness in tandem with a therapeutic team to carry out massages and weight-loss programs. Body wraps and the heat of a traditional Russian banya—complete with aromatherapy and oak-branch treatments—detoxify the body as they supplement weight-loss initiatives. The licensed massage therapists also undergo continuing education as they build their repertoire of more than 10 massage modalities, like deep-tissue massage for action figures.
