Acupuncture and Massage College helps its surrounding communities in two ways: by teaching students the art of pain and stress relief through therapeutic treatments and by empowering those students to treat those in need. With guidance from experienced instructors, students learn the various techniques of ancient acupuncture and massage, both in the classroom and in the field. Patients can come to the college and bid adieu to their aches and worries by lying down in a treatment room and be treated by a supervised learning practitioner. Students shoo away pain with 50-minute acupuncture treatments or massage sessions, customized to address problematic areas or work around any ventriloquist dummies clients refuse to put down.
Named Best Plastic Surgeon with an Artistic Streak in 2010 by the Miami New Times, Dr. Jose Perez-Gurri keeps up appearances with face-lifting Botox treatments and more than 25 years of doctoral expertise. Each nonsurgical facial enhancement uses a purified natural protein to smooth the lines in skin sands like a gentle wave. The in-office treatment injects small quantities of the protein into specific problem areas, blocking nerve impulses and reducing the muscle activity that forms wrinkles. Botox treatments are quick and require little to no downtime, ensuring that sessions are easily squeezable into lunch hours or after politely excusing yourself from a dinner date. Like invisible-ink tattoos, full results can take up to three weeks to appear, and results last up to six months. Dr. Perez-Gurri is expert at addressing any patient concerns, and he and his staff can do so in both English and Spanish.
True to its name, Massage Rituals is a place where every massage is a comprehensive experience. This is especially true of the spiritual bodywork treatments, like the multi-step Abyhanga signature ritual. But even treatments like the deep-tissue massage, designed to root out knots and flush lactic acid, are anchored by a focus on relaxation and balance. Whether treating clients to Ayurvedic oils, a soothing body wrap that lets clients emerge with massive butterfly wings, or a detoxifying lymphatic drainage session, therapists' connections to ancient bodywork traditions inform every stroke and stone.
The licensed massage therapists at Inches Body Studio's three locations help clients slim down with a menu of noninvasive treatments. They harness powers such as ultrasound, radio frequency, and heat to break down fat and leave cellulite deposits smoother than a just-waxed ice rink. Electromassage aims to activate muscles at the cellular level, and traditional hands-on massages promote lymphatic drainage and relaxation in one fell swoop.
The therapists and aestheticians at Scape Spa usher their clients to a state of relaxation and treat a range of ailments with a full menu of massages and facial treatments. The team is skilled in a wide array of bodywork modalities, from classic Swedish massage to reflexology of the hands and feet. Lymphatic massage pushes toxins out of the body, and prenatal massage helps mothers-to-be find relief from their unique aches and constant phone calls from their mothers-in-law. Alternatively, 60-minute facials, peels, and microdermabrasion sessions clear pores and freshen complexions.
A physician, a chiropractor, a personal trainer, and a psychotherapist are just some of the licensed medical professionals who nurture bodies with an expansive suite of spa, medical, and fitness services provided under one roof. The multifaceted staffers blend their services and areas of expertise to help male and female clients find physical balance through beauty and wellness treatments. Licensed massage therapists address tension with a range of massage modalities, including lymphatic, sports, and hot stone. Inside the med spa, injectable treatments fight signs of aging, reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars, and collapse spider veins and the wicked webs they weave.
