The staff at Dynamic Chiropractic Clinic believe that, because it's the body's communication center, the spine’s condition can affect the health of the entire body. During treatment sessions, chiropractors correct the alignment of vertebrae with up-to-date techniques—such as motion palpitation, which detects dysfunctional joints, and active release, which treats overused muscles with motion techniques—that are gentler than past methods and more effective than propping patients up with puppet strings. Other corrective techniques, such as exercises and massage therapy, retrain the muscles to support correct alignment. The clinic specializes in rehabilitating clients with injuries from accidents and other traumas, though they can help patients of all ages and backgrounds maintain good spinal health.
Amai Day Spa’s staff specializes in a dizzying variety of aesthetic services, allowing clients to slip into a fuzzy robe and pad from technologically enhanced facial treatments to ancient reflexology sessions to precise henna-tattoo applications in a matter of minutes. A stable of licensed massage therapists stand by to deliver aromatherapy, hot-stone, and four-handed massages, and aestheticians provide traditional and luxury facials that enhance complexions with caviar, LED light, or bedtime stories about lotion-breathing dragons. Once they leave their private treatment rooms, clients can head to the lobby to discover a wealth of tools to maintain healthy skin at home, including designer products such as Skin Ceuticals and Pevonia Botanica.
After nearly a decade spent working in the health and fitness industry, Joel Thomas wasn't content with his two master's degrees and time spent as a varsity strength and conditioning coach at both the University of Idaho and Washington State University. Joel founded his own practice under the name Out of Bounds CrossFit in 2007, which soon became a full-on CrossFit facility where Joel challenges and surprises members with an ever-changing regimen of fast-paced workouts. He uses kettlebells, medicine balls, dumbbells, and barbells that build muscle through functional movement rather than using machines that isolate individual muscle groups and weights that spit out a chocolate after every rep. Performed properly?that is, with energy and purpose?Joel's approach can increase endurance, strength, and flexibility, and improve overall body composition.
Within the Spanish-styled sanctuary of Oasis Salon Suites and Spa, Hilda Ortiz and her team of stylists help guests perfect their 'dos. The salon lives up to its motto—"Transforming lives with the art of color"—with an array of dye and highlighting services that add eye-catching hues to pallid strands. Haircut and styling sessions keep expertly colored coifs looking perfectly kempt, and conditioning treatments repair hair damage and make ponytails strong enough to reject a neon Scrunchie.
A woman lies on a padded table, with bands connecting a profusion of colored wires from a computer to her skin. The scene inside one of Body Evo's treatment rooms could be taking place in a laboratory, if not for the dim lighting. And the fact that the subject is serenely reading a magazine. This is the Computerized Muscle Stimulation system, which sends signals into muscles that induce tiny contractions, thereby helping blood and lymph fluid circulate while toning the muscles themselves. Although the spa staff and licensed massage therapists at Body Evo also offer herbal body wraps and analog massages, most of the treatments are similarly high-tech. Vibrating pods emit infrared light in order to tighten and tone skin as clients recline in a cocoon-like infrared sauna, adapted from the natural world's butterfly vacation homes. Other treatments are as easy as breathing: both the NanoVi and Activated Air machines tweak ordinary oxygen and use it to rejuvenate tissues.
