Dr. Jay Amin, MD, helms the hospitable clinic that bears his name, where he advocates for a medical philosophy that fuses technologically based medical science with naturalistic approaches that prize overall wellness. The spa's professional staff maintains a continuing education in skincare and body treatments, offering procedures for body contouring, cellulite reduction, tattoo removal, hair removal, and anti-aging therapy. In addition to expertise in med-spa services, the doctor earned his degree in and has 25 years of experience in internal medicine and is an associate of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. Some guests remark that Dr. Jay appears younger than his 54 years, which may be due to practicing the same wellness behaviors he recommends to others or the fountain of youth recently discovered bubbling under the clinic.

The experienced alternative-medicine practitioners of Happy Cloud Acupuncture recognize that the body’s natural healing processes are powerful; that it can heal itself with the right aid. So, they give bodies a push in the right direction by focusing on treating the body as a whole, rather than treating only problem areas, and by employing holistic therapies, such as acupuncture, chiropractic, cupping, and massage, that will help bodies fix themselves. They believe that, as Thomas Edison once said, “The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest her or his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease," and that these doctors will be cyborgs.
