After an acupuncturist cured a chronic sinus infection that antibiotics did not help, Michele Pimenta discovered the benefits of alternative medicine. She changed her career from a photographer to a facilitator of healing methodologies, and is now a biodynamic craniosacral therapist and certified practitioner of structural integration. Her techniques overall help align the body and balance the nervous system, and specifically treat back pain, neck pain from car accidents, and lingering pain from old football or thumb-wrestling injuries.
When diet and exercise prove no match for out-of-control curves, Dr. Greg Denzel and his staff want you to know you still have options. Across two locations, including the pristine and cottage-like Windsor office and a Lafayette office, the staff streamlines silhouettes with varying degrees of invasiveness, from hormone-replacement therapy to SmartLipo to SuperSculpt. They also beautify mugs with dermal fillers, and usher in relaxation with massage therapy and the whooshing sound of knotted kinks fleeing the scene.
A graduate of the Boulder College of Massage Therapy, Daniele Pimenta-Revord customizes bodywork for clients using a blend of Eastern and traditional massage techniques.

Daniele works one-on-one with individuals suffering from repetitive-motion injuries, such as athletes, musicians, and dashboard hula dancers.
Look and Feel Good Super Spa—a full-service day spa—lives up to its name with relaxing nail, massage, and skincare services that rejuvenate bodies and minds. Nail techs keep hands and feet chip-free for up to two weeks with CND Shellac, or hydrate digits with nourishing almond oil during traditional mani-pedis. More than 10 massage modalities call on hot towels and stones to help loosen tight muscles, as essential oils infused with the scent of cedarwood, wild thyme, or eucalyptus instill a sense of calm. The staff also dolls up faces with permanent-makeup applications and uses wax to subtract unwanted hairs and solve tricky arithmetic tattoos.
The health practitioners at Louisville Wellness Center work with one unified purpose: to heal, inspire, and connect with the greater Louisville community. They do this through health and wellness services that range from massage therapy to naturopathic medicine and psychotherapy. Through nutrition coaching, they help clients effectively address digestion issues and stabilize energy levels to avoid afternoon face-plants into computer keyboards. The knowledgeable staff also educates the community throughout the year with monthly wellness talks, women’s mindfulness groups, and training sessions.
At heart, Doctor of Chiropractic Randall B. Moore of Moore-Life Chiropractic Wellness Center is a family man and a humanitarian. His work reflects his role as a father: after the birth of his daughter, Dr. Moore decided to train in the Webster technique so that he could help expectant mothers. He is also currently studying toward a diplomate in pediatric-chiropractic care. This compassion extends beyond his flesh and blood, too. He hosts an annual food drive and has designated the first Wednesday of each month as Donation Day, in which clients make a payment of their choice, and the doctor donates the proceeds to local charities and patients who cannot afford treatment.
In addition to specializing in pregnancy and infant care, Dr. Moore has extensive training in treating extremity and sports injuries. He and his team enhance the benefits of chiropractic adjustments with services such as massage therapy, acupuncture, and low-level laser therapy, which is designed to accelerate the body's healing process and enable patients to scan grocery barcodes with their fingers.
