Whether sporting natural nails or acrylics, at Glamorous Polish every guest leaves with beautiful nails. Looks range from simple french manicures to intricate 3-D nail art. Gel manicures use long-lasting polish for a chip-free look that lasts for weeks, or at least until a trip back to Glamorous Polish for a color change.
Along with nailcare, the staff also pampers guests with eyelash extensions, facials, and waxing.
The team at Atlantic Grove Chiropractic & Laser Center Inc. specializes in alleviating discomfort. That process starts the second clients sink into the waiting room's plush couch piled with velvety red pillows. For ailments more serious than too-hard chairs, though, the real relief begins in sessions with Dr. James Spencer. His Doctorate in Chiropractic means he knows how to treat achy spines, tending them with treatments from chiropractic adjustments to customized exercise plans. His expertise extends to soft tissue troubles as well. Using the Graston Technique, he massages clients with stainless steel instruments, breaking down scar tissue and fascial blockages. His K-Laser treatments, meanwhile, stimulate tissue repair and growth with beams of light.
The human body is a machine: an intricate system of individual parts that all rely on coordinated communications from the nervous system. When that system of communication breaks or slows down, the machine may not necessarily shut down, but it will operate at less than peak efficiency. Dr. Roger Verno has dedicated more than 20 years of his life to restoring those lines of communication, using chiropractic care to help improve neurological function and jump-start the body's natural healing processes.
At their core, Dr. Verno's chiropractic adjustments aim to relieve chronic pains while addressing the underlying conditions that caused those problems in the first place. Since these sorts of precision tweaks are especially valuable for athletes, Dr. Verno often lends his therapeutic talents to everyone from football and basketball teammates to triathlon competitors and shot put quality-control testers.
When a relatively simple hands-on adjustment might not be enough to fully address a patient's needs, Dr. Verno and his team aren't afraid to utilize technological assistance. X-ray imaging gives the staff a clearer look at potential problem spots, and computerized spinal-decompression systems help them pinpoint and treat the pinched nerves that can cause lower back pain and sciatica. Cold laser therapy and ultrasound treatments also help the therapists address specialized problems within the body's intricate framework of muscles, nerves, and organs.
Massage Therapy's two massage experts, Frank Vega and Raciel Escalona, help clients relax using two different massage modalities: Swedish and deep-tissue. For the former, they spread soothing relief to muscles with long, gliding strokes meant to cultivate whole-body relaxation, improve circulation, and aid in the detoxification process. For those looking for something a bit more potent, they employ deep-tissue techniques that rope in strong finger pressure and firmer strokes. This approach works to realign deep muscle layers and connective tissue, helping to relieve chronic pain and stiffness so clients can get back to performing everyday tasks or commuting to work via cartwheels without discomfort.
Hair By Debora is home to a suite of beauty services that includes facials, waxing, manicures, and, of course, hairstyling. Inside the salon, stylists curl, crimp, and straighten tresses or pin them up into stylish buns and braids. Elsewhere, technicians tend to nails and faces and strip away unwanted hair with wax.
The Salt Suite's halotherapy rooms were carved from 24,000 pounds of salt imported from the Dead Sea, historically noted for its healing and wellness properties. The naturally antibacterial salt lies in layers upon the floor and walls, also flavoring the dry aerosol emissions that circulate within the fresh, temperate air pumped into each room by a halogenerator. Twenty-one minerals found within the salt aim to detoxify, cleanse, and replenish bodies, easing the effects of ailments such as sinusitis, eczema, allergies, asthma, COPD, and flavorless-popcorn syndrome.
The adult suite seats up to seven guests in individual spaces—while relaxing in cushioned chairs, patrons can mind-surf on a wave of soft music, count the number of semicolons in a magazine, or click boldly into unexplored sectors of the Internet. Toys and television entertain little busybodies inside the kids' room, where salt covers the ground and an underwater vista fills the space between floor and ceiling. In addition to salt therapy, The Salt Suite offers Yin, Vinyasa, and Hatha yoga sessions in one of its trademark salt chambers.
