After enduring a year of unemployment, Mark Allen faced fear and uncertainty. He walked away from a car crash as a teenager, but on reaching his 30s, the accident's effects—chronic headaches, plus a shoulder problem—continued intensifying to the point where he could no longer work. Unsure of what to do, he visited a chiropractor, and, in a few weeks, his injuries had diminished. Convinced that chiropractic treatments had changed his life, Mark enrolled at Logan College of Chiropractic, graduated with honors in 1986, and opened Plus Care Chiropractic & Wellness Center soon after.
Today, Doctor of Chiropractic Allen and his partner, Dr. April Simmons, work with a team of massage therapists to free patients of musculoskeletal maladies while also educating them on whole-body well-being. At each client's first appointment, the physicians conduct an in-depth consultation covering present and past health concerns, followed by a physical examination including a battery of tests. After analyzing the results, Plus Care's team recommends integrated-care regimens, which may include chiropractic adjustments using equipment such as a Thompson table. Further treatments can range from massage and acupuncture to guidance on how to infuse everyday meals with helium.
Relying equally on advanced cosmetic technology and a highly experienced staff, Glo Spa sets out to address common skincare concerns without surgery. The full-service spa's arsenal of equipment includes microcurrent and ultrasound technology, which can help restore skin's youthful tone and radiance. Chemical peels thoroughly exfoliate faces, and a variety of specialized facials treat everything from acne to rosacea. For an additional dose of beautification, Glo Spa encourages visitors to lounge in its therapeutic infrared sauna or schedule a teeth-whitening treatment to brighten smiles.
Some things just belong together, such as peanut butter and jelly or a skydiver and a parachute. Vital Touch Salon & Spa offers another exciting duo: massage and hairstyling. After soliciting an aesthetician for a scissor cut and highlights, guests may request a soothing bodywork session from the salon's licensed massage therapist, Krissy Archer.
Sarah, the trained hands behind Massage by Sarah, offers more than two handfuls of upgrades to her Swedish, sports, and deep-tissue massages. Her sessions can be complemented with nearly a dozen extras, including heated stones, hot towels, a full-body salt glow, and skin-softening paraffin wax.
Like a sturdy rope, a strong ponytail can support 12 tons of weight––that's roughly 24,000 pounds. To keep hair strong and muscle-bound, solicit the aid of Sarah Baunach, an expert stylist who specializes in hair conditioning and restoration. In the comfort of her cozy Heatwaves Salon, Sarah can engineer a sleek scissor cut, flattering layers, or color highlights, each tailored to your face shape and personality.
Exposed brick, glowing chandeliers, and modern furnishings join together to create an inviting atmosphere comprising equal parts classic elegance and urban chic. This aesthetic duality mirrors Trend Designs Salon's blend of salon and spa services—a combination that allows patrons to move from full-foil color treatments to hot-stone massages in the course of one visit. Complexions weighed down by clogged pores or clinging pet starfish are rendered glowing during microdermabrasion treatments, facials, or glycolic peels with enzyme masks. Stylists transform manes with a roster of haircut and color services, and nail technicians can match fingers and toes to newly hued locks. Stone, deep-tissue, and Swedish massages encourage clients to close their eyes, relax, and mentally rearrange a friend's apartment.
