Losing weight typically requires self-discipline and sacrifice, but that doesn?t mean you can?t treat yourself along the way. Integrative Care Wellness Center erases the line between weight loss and pampering with relaxing, noninvasive techniques designed to reduce cellulite and fat cells. The center?s ultrasonic-cavitation treatment is a perfect example: it uses low-frequency sound waves to dissipate stubborn fat cells in as little as 20 minutes.
As its name implies, Integrative Care Wellness Center specializes in more than just weight loss. Detoxifying wraps improve circulation and enhance skin?s appearance, and therapeutic massages ease tension and discomfort. Among these massages is a signature Bamboo Fusion treatment that uses heated bamboo sticks to stimulate lymphatic drainage and attract cuddly pandas.
Dr. Toler and the conscientious crew at Tacoma Chiropractic commit themselves to healing ailments using their spine-straightening skills. A one-hour massage can relieve stress, unknot overworked muscles, and clear away the tension of held-back curse words. Clients can choose from a myriad of massage options, including deep tissue, relaxation, Swedish, and therapeutic, depending on their needs. The center's soothing yellow and green walls evoke Mother Nature, enveloping each patient in her nurturing arms, while its tenacious team slakes stress from aching bodies.
The definition of beauty is subjective and vast, causing some people to strive for clear skin while others care only about the slimness of their waistlines. At Skin Science, owner Sherril Monson aims to accommodate as many beauty needs as possible in one place. Led by medical director Dr. Shannon Pickens, her team of certified technicians plumps up complexions with Botox injections, reduces the appearance of cellulite during VelaShape treatments, and zaps unwanted hair with Palomar lasers. The staff's facial treatments employ skincare products from Obagi, SkinCeuticals, ZO Skin Health by Dr. Zein Obagi., and Clarisonic, all of which are available for purchase in Skin Science?s retail shop.
Body Art Day Spa & Salon offers manicures, pedicures, facials, massages, and hair services. The salon and spa aims to have something on the menu for every member of the family, including a list of men's services and Mother's Day spa packages. Regardless of the client, they're sure to achieve their aesthetic goals. For example, microdermabrasion treatments render skin luminous, and eyelash extensions help clients bat away teddy bears thrown by admiring fans.
Though she enjoys conversing with her patients, Dr. Marilyn Pelias's ultimate goal is to get them out her office quickly. The seasoned surgeon tries to minimize the downtime following her procedures, thus enabling clients to resume work and daily activities with little hassle. Even before her treatments begin, she puts guests at ease. During pretreatment consultations, she answers questions and describes her services thoroughly to educate her patients.
Dr. Pelias's surgical treatments range from minor changes such as brow lifts and earlobe repair all the way to tummy tucks and liposuction. With the S-Lift, a faster, simpler alternative to a traditional face-lift, she reduces the appearance of sagging skin on the neck and lower face. Nonsurgical sessions often incorporate lasers, which the doctor uses for skin resurfacing, body contouring or the removal of body hair, spider veins, and tattoos that say I Love My Body Hair and Spider Veins. She also uses skincare products from Obagi to complement chemical peels and microdermabrasion sessions. Dr. Pelias doesn't do it all on her own, though. Aesthetician Shannon Eckler jumps in with the assist on all matters beauty-related, including corrective make-up, microdermabrasion, and hair-removal.
