Joseph D'Antona, The Balance Health & Wellness Center's managing director, heads a practice that won Long Island Press's Best Acupuncturist and Best Massage awards for 2013. He uses his advanced certifications in NAET allergy elimination to naturally ride allergies through acupuncture. Collaborating with this expert team of therapists, D'Antona offers services to reduce pain, eliminate stress, and remove toxins. Sessions in the far-infrared sauna and water-fueled colon-hydrotherapy sessions promote wellness and are just two of the center's 25 salutary treatments. Spa procedures, such as cleansing, exfoliating facials, soothing hot-stone massages, and acoustic-wave cellulite-reduction therapy beautify bodies and promote a sense of deep relaxation. D'Antona takes a holistic approach to improving the health of clients, and he and the staff make communication a priority throughout each guest's treatment experience.
The orange glow of a salt lamp softly illuminates the room as licensed massage therapist Andrew Kressel kneads organic, lavender-infused oil into his clients’ sore spots. He has been alleviating tension and pain for more than 15 years with massages customized to individual needs, myofascial therapy, and the Australian-born Bowenwork technique. Using the Bowenwork technique, he dispenses gentle strokes to lull the body into a deeply relaxed state, which can continue to develop throughout the following 10 days, much like a short game of Monopoly.
Melissa Carey embraces traditional Chinese medicine when alleviating her patients’ discomfort. Her acupuncture sessions and herbal mixes treat disorders affecting every system in the body such as indigestion, hypertension, arthritis, migraines, allergies, depression, and addictions to alcohol or Pokémon. Additionally, Melissa offers a Revitalight treatment that uses LED light technology to diminish the appearance of fine lines and boost the production of collagen.
Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa's staff of beautifiers tunes tendons and harmonizes physiques with an array of pampering services. During a 10-minute massage consultation, a massage therapist will determine the best way to melt tension and aches left over from stressful things such as jobs and stress. Each personalized 50-minute knot-kneading session combines several techniques to help relieve muscle tension, recharge bodily batteries by increasing circulation, and tranquillize the mind.
Dr. Douglas Wright calls upon more than 20 years of chiropractic experience to lead a staff that keeps backs kink-free with spinal adjustments, orthopedic treatments, and physical therapy. Chiropractic visits typically begin with a thorough back exam that searches out crooked vertebrae, which can cause chronic pain and impede the nervous system from functioning properly. Through adjustments, a chiropractic specialist gently nudges spines back into place before a massage therapist kneads tension out of knotted muscles. The office's occupational therapy helps keep bodies in shape for jobs or leisure activities, and nutrition counseling revamps diets for clients who've lost bets to eat nothing but Atomic Fireballs for five years.
Inner Spirit Acupuncture administers community-style acupuncture treatments inside a quiet, soothing space. With decorative lanterns dangling from above, groups of up to four patients relax in reclining chairs as the acupuncturists insert needles into the body's strategic distal locations. The facility does not enforce a time limit, allowing each individual to remain in the treatment room for as long as they feel necessary. Sessions at Inner Spirit Acupuncture may help treat a variety of common ailments, including arthritis, hot flashes, stress and fatigue, weight loss and digestive disorders, anxiety and depression, PMS, and many types of pain.
