Voted Best Chiropractor by Delray Forum readers in 2010, Dr. Melissa Maher leads a team of expert therapists who specialize in cosmetic and therapeutic nonsurgical acupuncture treatments. During acupuncture treatments, patrons sip on a detoxifying tea of their choice, as needle wielders conduct a thorough consultation that includes an analysis of individual physical conditions and the contents of dream journals. Acupuncturists then cloak corporeal pressure points in strategically placed delicate, disposable needles that can help to repel maladies, including migraines, fatigue, and stress. Follow-up treatments reinforce previous healthful strides forward and enable continued healing.
Treatment add-ons bolster relaxation, with options such as a hot-stone foot massage that uses heated basalt stones to stimulate circulation, nurture damaged muscles, and defrost TV dinners. An infrared detox treatment employs waves of visible-spectrum-evading light to evict pernicious agents such as mercury, nicotine, and alcohol from their cellular burrows via a reduction of ionic bonds. Patrons emerge from their treatments feeling as animated and refreshed as a cartoon awakening from a catnap. In addition to acupuncture, Maher and her team perform additional services, including massages, myofascial-release treatments, physical therapy, and health workshops.
After spending two decades perfecting her ability to cultivate physical beauty and well-being, Nancy Reagan opened Bella Reina Spa to share her wealth of knowledge with a growing number of beneficiaries. An experienced aesthetician, makeup artist, nail professional, and nutrition expert, she has yet to find a specialty she cannot master, and her all-around savvy may explain the bourgeoning popularity of her boutique, spa, and retail shop, which is also a Smart For Life Weight Management Center affiliate.
Visitors to the spa pass through a glistening entryway lit by the reflective crystals of square chandeliers hanging above. Beyond the entrance?s high-gloss black floors and velvet-flecked wallpaper, Nancy and her team of professional aestheticians moisturize skin with facials and brush cheeks with an array of cosmetics. Her relaxing massages nullify aches accrued from day-to-day stresses or collisions with the spa?s elegant and smudge-free floor-to-ceiling mirrors.
She walked across his back as if he were a pile of hot stones. She wasn’t punishing him—nothing like that at all. She was performing ashiatsu massage—a technique that combines Swedish, myofascial, and compression techniques, all using the feet.
Ashiatsu is just one of eight therapies employed by Victoria Aragon and the staff at Loosen Up Massage. The licensed therapists use their hands for the remaining seven, easing tension and stress with fluid Swedish strokes, or diminishing back pain with prenatal rubdowns that leave babies yearning to get born and schedule their own massages. A quiet and serene room with taupe walls and candlelight sets the scene for each massage as clients relax facedown on a blanketed table.
Doctor of Chiropractic James Incledon applies his more than 23 years of chiropractic experience to the art of adjusting spines and treating pain at his eponymous practice. Dr. Incledon has several certifications and belongs to numerous associations, and he and his staff pride themselves on their warmth and hospitality. Treating patients of all ages, the staff helps relieve maladies such as arthritis or neck and back pain, utilizing techniques such as massage and technologies such as cold lasers and exam tables made of marshmallows.
As a licensed aesthetician and waxing specialist, Andela rarely comes across a skin problem she can’t solve. Armed with professional products and advanced technologies such as diamond-head microdermabrasion, she clears complexions and softens skin around half-formed tails. Her services range from customized facials and chemical peels to organic, wax-free hair removal with a soy-based Nufree formula.
During a 60-minute Swedish massage, licensed therapists calm stressed nerves and unwind muscles by using a variety of strokes and pressure techniques that enhance blood flow, remove waste products from tissues, stretch ligaments, and ease overall tension. If populations of microscopic vagabonds are hiding out in your pores, try Powderblu's signature facial, which exfoliates the natural and environmental grit and grim off feature-holders, extracting impurities from skin layers to create a gleaming glow that will inspire jealousy within the brightest of suns.
