As a young woman, Tracy Teclaw cared for her ailing parents, who passed away before her freshman year in college. The experience left Tracy dissatisfied with Western medicine, so she earned certifications in holistic healthcare and founded Energy Wellness Center.Today, she practices alternative medicine in the company of an acupuncturist, massage therapist, holistic nutrition guru, podiatrist and QRA practitioner, and biofeedback technician. With homeopathic treatments, nutritional counseling, and capsules of chicken noodle soup, the wellness professionals try to help bodies heal themselves.
At Sanctuary Salon & Day Spa, owner Pareen Merchant leads a team of beauty experts that polishes clients' looks from head to toe. Hair designers create custom cuts and restore damaged hair with conditioning treatments. To remove body hair or prune overgrown Chia pets, the staff employs laser technology and the Middle Eastern art of threading, a signature service that caught the attention of Melissa Mayntz of LoveToKnow.com. Merchant learned the technique from friends and cousins before honing her speed and brow-arching skills at a cosmetology program in India.
Massage therapists soothe weary muscles with a variety of modalities, and aestheticians brighten complexions with clinical skincare treatments, including medical microdermabrasion and Revitalight LED sessions. The salon's nail services earned a spot as a finalist in the Best Manicure and Pedicure category of CityVoter's 2007 and 2008 awards.
The stylists at Hair Dynamics West specialize in delivering vibrant, safe, and glossy hair color, but the team is just as adept at cutting, styling, and treating strands as it is in dressing them with an all-over glow or vibrant highlights. Since 1991, women, men, and children have taken a seat for classic and couture cuts. The stylists can customize each appointment by pulling hair products targeted by hair type and condition from the salon's large display of beauty products. Aside from color and haircuts, the staff can also smooth hair for up to twelve weeks with a surface-smoothing bath that reins in frizzy locks and curls that have given themselves motion sickness from twisting and turning.
Helmed by a triumvirate of dedicated doctors, the experienced staff at Bella Vita Medi Spa & Salon tends to guests inside its more than 5,000-square-foot med spa with a diverse menu of cosmetic, spa, and salon services. Ornate mirrors and artwork line the warm-hued walls, surrounding aestheticians as they revitalize faces and bodies in private treatment rooms or style coifs with products in the salon area. Their laser services do battle with fine lines and cellulite, and a range of cosmetic injections helps to undo the effects of aging or playing Sudoku in the dark.
After feeling the pain-relieving effects of acupuncture firsthand, Mehrafrouz “Ladan” R. Foradi resolved to study nutrition, acupuncture, and Oriental medicine, eventually putting her skills to work at her own acupuncture practice. Foradi consults with clients next to the earth-toned walls of her treatment rooms, explaining how acupuncture works to treat issues such as neck and back pain, headaches, inflammation, arthritis, and needle deficiency. Soft classical music puts patients at ease before Foradi carefully inserts individually wrapped, disposable needles into acupuncture points. Foradi also offers other treatments to complement the effects of acupuncture, such as cupping, Tuina, and homeopathic injections.
