Europa Salon & Spa helps clients define their aesthetic image by creating well-crafted coiffures. During a men's or women's cut, experienced stylists take up their shears and shape head-hedges into neatly trimmed frizz, pausing often to water thirsty stems with moisturizing Aquage and Biolage products. In addition to the follicle chopping, clients have the option of pairing their haircut with a professional Redken dye to refresh worn-out colors and impress the fickle drawing room mirrors.
Your Choice Wellness's nutrition and wellness consultant Megan Slechta employs her AFPA-certified skills in motivating patients to fulfill healthy, productive goals.

Facial Rejuvenation Center offers a lineup of noninvasive cosmetic medical procedures that beautify faces and minimize the amount of downtime required of patients. Cure lackluster lashes with two Latisse eyelash take-home kits. Four weeks into a daily swabbing of the eyelids with the FDA-approved solution, eyelashes begin to grow like magical ophthalmic beanstalks. After 16 weeks, clients are left with luxurious eye brooms that can be used for flirting or scratching the bellies of nearby terriers. A microdermabrasion facial treatment treats dead skin cells like the freeloaders they are, evicting them with mechanical precision. The one-hour treatment promotes cell growth, balances the production of skin oils, and stimulates collagen networking. The result is a visage that is smoother and cleaner, with pores free of dirt and microscopic empty pizza boxes.
Barbershop quartets meld their voices to produce a sound no individual member could make. Similarly, the four doctors behind Chiropractic Health Care Associates marry the work of their hands to relieve pain in a holistic way. They examine each patient’s needs, consulting medical documents and x-rays to thoroughly understand the nature of injuries or pain. They then prescribe a course of treatment to aid recovery. Programs may involve traditional spinal adjustments or K-laser therapy treatments, which use light to increase blood flow and white-blood-cell raves in the targeted area.
When licensed cosmetologist Chuck Fiegen founded Capri College in 1966, he knew that the best way to prepare students for the work force was to start at the top—with the educators. By sending his instructors all around the world to learn the latest trends and techniques, he was giving his students access to information they couldn't find in any textbook. More than 45 years have passed, but Fiegen—who continues to run the beauty school with the help of his six children—remains a stickler for teaching excellence. He can occasionally be found observing teaching methods and offering his two-cents on the clinic floor.
Inside the ACCSC-accredited college, instructors with at least three years of experience bolster students’ employability with training in cosmetology, massage therapy, aesthetics, and nail technology. Students put their training into action in the student-staffed salon and spa, where they paint and snip dull strands, and soften extremities with paraffin treatments. In the spa, students dole out five types of massage modalities, from relaxing Swedish strokes to Thai massage, which addresses tension with yoga-like stretches and the pressing of eject buttons. Their panoply of facials help counteract skin woes, such as fine lines or acne, whereas microdermabrasion buffs away dead skin, sunspots, and other facial imperfections with an onslaught of sodium-bicarbonate crystals.
Dr. David Harvey sees relieving pain as only half the battle. He prepares to combat pain and recurring injury with an extensive array of techniques and technologies, including the Activator adjustment method, electrotherapy, and a transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator. Dr. Harvey and his staff bid adieu to sharp, searing muscle pain, back pain, and headaches—although the doctor believes the relief is only temporary if patients don’t understand the root cause of their distress. So Dr. Harvey and his staff delve through a detailed medical history, physical exam, and x-rays to identify and correct imbalances in the body through manual adjustments, nutritional counseling, and rehabilitation exercises.
