From Pilates, yoga, and cycling classes to facials, body wraps, and massages, Changes in Motion’s repertoire of life-affirming services helps clients achieve health and beauty from the inside out. Students can enroll in small-group classes or one-on-one sessions with one of three licensed Pilates instructors—former dancer Effie, Power Pilates expert Emmy, or Pilates veteran Wendy. The trio rounds up Reformer machines, springboards, and a TRX suspension system to help novices and seasoned students alike strengthen and tone their cores. The studio also boasts a full class schedule packed with non-Pilates sessions, such as spinning, cross training, and yoga.
After clients work up a sweat, they can head to the spa for a 60-minute cooldown session with a licensed massage therapist, who customizes deep-tissue, Swedish, and Thai stretch techniques to individual concerns. Across the hall, licensed aestheticians use Éminence, B&G, and WoodSprite organic skincare products during facials and body wraps, hydrating skin and restoring a look of youth. Meanwhile, two noninvasive systems—the TriActive laser and electrical-stimulation machine—blend technologies to boost circulation, smooth cellulite, and tighten skin without the hassle of squeezing into a straitjacket made entirely of band-aids.
Dr. Bernard, resident physician of Park Place, A Medical Spa, attempts to foil the effects of aging and excess body blubber with noninvasive med-spa procedures. His trio of chemical peels uses either powerful phenol, trichloroacetic acid, or gentler alphahydroxy acid to unveil younger-looking skin. He leaves countenances supple enough to invent never-before-seen expressions with custom facials, and sweeps away surface imperfections such as fine lines, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation with microdermabrasion.
In addition to skincare-focused services, the doctor performs health- and body-related treatments, such as K1 whole-body vibration, which aims to improve circulation and muscle tone with oscillating vibrations created by thousands of mexican jumping beans. Also making the list are Lipo-Ex treatments—which harness advanced technology to smooth cellulite and tighten sagging skin—hydrogen-peroxide teeth-whitening, and laser hair-removal treatments.
At Blissful Wellness Medical Weight Loss Centers, Dr. Elyssa Blissenbach and her team of licensed medical professionals and counselors devote their medical expertise to combating obesity. They take a three-pronged approach to slimming clients: customized programs, top-shelf supplements, and constant support. Like snowflakes’ DNA strands, no two patients are alike—and so staff members carefully calibrate diet and supplement plans to suit each client's metabolism, condition, and body type. The program also provides a support system for clients, offering everything from individual therapy to group outings to help ensure long-term weight loss.
The doctors at FirstCoast MD tend to their patients' wellbeing with a trio of clinical services. Their weight-loss programs herald healthy lifestyle changes supplemented with FDA-approved aids such as appetite suppressants or gloves that prevent hands from fitting into Pringles cans. In the Urgent Care clinic, efficient providers ensure the injured and infirm don't languish more than 30 minutes in the waiting room, and the physicians at the auto-accident center specialize in back, neck, and nerve complaints.
Dr. Quinn leads her staff in boosting clients’ health and beauty with nonsurgical treatments that blend Western technology with holistic philosophies. Whether seeking to slim down or look younger, clients meet with Dr. Quinn to create a plan-of-action that matches their desired goals. This can include dermal fillers to plump up lips, medical diet plans to sleek silhouettes, or lasers to banish unwanted hair and tattoos. No matter the treatment, the staff lavishes clients with personal attention and ensures their safety and comfort.
At First Coast Plastic Surgery, board-certified surgeon David N. Csikai and his team of specialists perform an array of aesthetic treatments. Among their specialties are surgeries such as browlifts and liposuction and non-invasive treatments that include Botox, Radiesse, and laser resurfacing.
