Massage therapists team up with aestheticians to pamper clients from head to toe amid a backdrop of burbling water fountains and vibrant flowers. The team pulls from Organic Skin Care and PCA products to cleanse faces during custom facials, and pairs massage strokes with heated stones and essential oils for added relaxation.
Massage may be useful for alleviating pent-up stress and tension, but the certified therapists at Life Bodyworks also rely on certain massage modalities to relieve pain and restore holistic balance. Massage therapists work with each client to discover what sorts of ailments they are experiencing, allowing them to design a custom treatment regimen that addresses those issues.
The therapists have a wide variety of massage modalities in their toolbox. The gentle tapping and kneading of Swedish massage can soothe moderate aches while increasing circulation. Deep-tissue pressure focuses a bit further beneath the surface, increasing joints' range of motion and targeting the physical sources of chronic discomfort. For a slightly different approach, the center's reflexology sessions aim to increase a client's overall sense of well-being by releasing the energy blockages that can prevent the organ systems and battery-powered muscles from functioning as efficiently as possible.
At Vendesi Beauty & Wellness Center, individually tailored facials cater to a wide range of skin concerns, treating faces in need of firming, hydrating, exfoliating, and more. The expansive skincare menu also includes microdermabrasion, back exfoliating treatments, and vitamin-C-infused exfoliation. But this beauty and wellness center offers much more than just skincare: other services include massages, body wraps, and spray tanning, to name a few.
The “R” behind R. Vivo Therapeutic Massage & Body Spa is massage therapist Rachel Vivo, who welcomes tired bodies to her candlelit studio to help them relax with a host of signature massages, body wraps, and body-scrub treatments. Swedish, deep-tissue, or prenatal massages soften up soft tissues and saturate muscles with oxygen-rich blood that replaces built-up toxins or blood that's rich in helium. Without getting up, clients can also enjoy hydrating treatments with ingredients such as green tea and lime leaf, or stretch their toes toward a tropical-themed pedicure; aromatherapy add-ons make any treatment more soothing by blending in the use of spirit-reviving essential oils.
Living Life Medspa's medical director, Dr. John O. Dimowo, performs health and beauty procedures using advanced training in a wide variety of medical specialties. In addition to being board certified in both anesthesiology and pain medicine, Dr. Dimowo is a member of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery. He is also an acupuncturist, a cardiovascular anesthesiologist, and was recently trained in the use of 3-D/4-D neonatal echocardiography.
Dr. Dimowo is one of the few qualified surgeons in the Inland Empire to use SmartLipo technology to help patients reach their body-contouring goals. To combat signs of aging, he employs infrared-light-based Titan treatments and cosmetic injectables. His team also specializes in massage therapy and aesthetic services such as facials, peels, and eyelash-enhancing treatments, which add volume without the need for mascara or tiny bicycle pumps.
