The licensed aestheticians at Spa Aura don't just specialize in European or Asian techniques; rather, they practice a seamless fusion of both. During manicures and pedicures, for instance, nail techs not only expertly apply eye-catching polish, but also help improve blood flow with massage and acupressure techniques. Patrons then visit the upper level's nail-drying bar, where they can watch retro films or read magazines until their colors dry.
Down in the softly lit lower level, past tiled floors lined with glowing lights, aestheticians incorporate ingredients such as coconut milk into circulation-boosting body treatments. Following one of Spa Aura?s body treatments?as well as facials and massages?clients are invited for a soothing visit to the infrared sauna. The dry sauna, lined with minerals plucked from the mountains of Asia, detoxifies bodies in a more relaxing way than trying to remove pennies stuck up the nose during childhood.
Licensed acupuncturist Ariele Myers works to help patients achieve a healthier lifestyle through acupuncture and other holistic treatments. Though Ariele's Apothecary specializes in using acupuncture to treat women's fertility issues, the staff members can also target their services to ease arthritis pain, digestive disorders, and depression, alongside a variety of other conditions.
But acupuncture needles can be used for more than just addressing medical issues and destroying balloon animals?they can also treat cosmetic issues. During Dermapen microneedling, therapists use a pen with 11 thin needles in each disposable tip to erase fine lines, reduce under-eye bags, and reveal overall younger-looking skin.
When doctors told Brian Chang that he would never fully recover from the injuries he obtained in a car accident, he was undeterred. Instead of accepting the news, he traveled to Asia, where he sought treatment in the form of acupuncture and herbal medicine. After several months of therapy, he began to regain function and even found relief from several of his more incapacitating symptoms. His recovery inspired him to become Dr. Brian Chang, an acupuncturist and practitioner of Classical Chinese Medicine.
In his practice, Dr. Chang uses a holistic approach that addresses the underlying causes behind clients' symptoms, restoring a sense of balance to the body's natural energies (or chi). During acupuncture sessions, he accomplishes this by inserting hair-thin needles into key spots along the body, removing any blockages that interfere with the flow of these energies and helping alleviate everything from musculoskeletal pain to emotional stress from not knowing what it's like to be a pin cushion. While acupuncture is his core service, Dr. Chang offers treatments such as essential-oil therapy, cupping, and moxibustion as well.
At Hoboken Medical Aesthetics, Dr. Oscar Pizarro personally performs all of the clinical cosmetic services. The doctor administers anti-aging formulas such as Botox and Radiesse, as well as sclerotherapy vein treatments and prescriptions for the HCG diet. Using the three light-delivery methods of the Sciton Joule laser system, Dr. Pizarro and his team can perform procedures ranging from laser-assisted lipolysis to fractional skin resurfacing. Dr. Pizarro also works together with a therapeutic-massage practitioner to address chronic discomfort such as sports injuries, fibromyalgia, or an inability to form the final letter in the "Y.M.C.A." dance.

Ravinder's Day Spa's owner, Ravinder K. Valia, is a graduate of the prestigious Swiss CIDESCO beauty association and has more than 30 years of experience freshening faces. Let her or one of her staff of skin specialists create a smooth, younger-looking finish on your frontispiece by polishing it with a microdermabrasion device, which sloughs off layers of dead skin like peeling open a banana to reveal the creamy mashed potatoes inside. Once the weathered layer of skin is stripped away, a new layer—one with a more even tone, fewer acne scars, and no temporary tattoo remnants—is revealed.
