Dr. Roger Bassin doesn't tell new patients why he should be their cosmetic surgeon. Instead, he puts them in contact with past patients to help them learn about the experience and life-changing results from people who have been through it themselves.
At Dr. Bassin's side is a supporting staff that performs aesthetic and cosmetic nonsurgical procedures such as Botox and vein removal. Meanwhile, the center's aesthetician Marsha Ostrander reenlivens faces with 15 years' experience performing facials, masks, waxing, and more, and a kissing booth manned by an electric eel.
Massage Therapy's licensed therapist, Michael Manning, convinces snarled muscles to let loose under the supervision of his dexterous digits, which are fluent in three main modalities. The slow strokes of Swedish massage soothe muscles into a state of relaxation normally experienced only by cooked pasta. Limbs that have been injured or overworked during athletic encounters unclench with sports massages, and therapeutic sessions return mobility to stiff appendages without surgically implanting extra elbows.
Small class sizes enable nationally-certified trainers to provide students with individualized attention during CrossFit sessions at Live Breathe CrossFit & Wellness Studio. Trainers ensure the correct form is used during weight lifting reps and holds on the gymnastics rings, and watch over trainees swinging kettlebells and hopping up onto wooden boxes. On nice days, workouts move outside, where teams dig their heels in the sand while playing tug o’ war, sprinting across the beach, or pretending to be person-shaped pieces of driftwood. In addition to CrossFit classes, the gym also offers yoga classes that can help improve core strength and flexibility.
At Body by Us, registered nurse Jennifer Chapman specializes in the body-contouring and skin-tightening treatment known as Cavi-Lipo. IIn a private treatment room, Jennifer applies the ultrasound machine to areas such as the abdomen or love handles for 60 to 90 minutes. While clients relax, ultrasound waves target fat cells. The waves break them down, which allows the body's natural processes to remove the cells' unwanted contents. Afterward, clients relax in the wet sauna and rinse off under the spa's raindrop-style showerhead.
Natural rock salts cover every wall surface of The Salt Room's treatment rooms, including the floors and ceilings. The facility uses salt's innate antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to help alleviate a number of symptoms, from allergies and asthma to bronchitis and emphysema. Inside those treatment rooms, visitors lounge in comfortable recliners while breathing in the healing particles, which clear nasal and lung passageways of allergens, bacteria, and mucus blockage. The Salt Room also offers various unsalted services, including acupuncture, massage, skin care, and yoga.
