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.
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.
Since opening its first center in 1999, Laser Skin & Wellness has expanded to two locations, both of which provide medical aesthetic treatments overseen by Medical Director, Gloria Hakkarainen, M.D. And to ensure each patient receives the best treatment for their concerns, a personalized consultation is performed before technicians craft a customized treatment plan, which can include medical weight loss programs, laser tattoo removal, dermal fillers, and permanent makeup treatments. Laser technicians gently remove unwanted hair with a Cutera CoolGlide laser, which keeps the skin comfortable with a built-in cooling device, or a Cutera ProWave 770 system that can banish strands on all skin types including invisible. During acne treatments, a Clear Light system releases blue-violet rays across the skin, killing bacteria deep in the pores. To further beautify complexions, Laser Skin & Wellness’ staff also employs Obagi, SkinMedica, EltaMD, and Jan Marini products.
Since starting in 2003 with a focus on providing top-notch eyebrow-threading services, Sangita's Beauty Spa has evolved into a place that patrons frequent for a variety of spa treatments. The spa's threading artists and internationally trained aesthetician carefully work to keep skin smooth and clear with hair-plucking cotton threads and skin-rejuvenating treatments. Guests may also stop in for a relaxing 30- to 90-minute massage or to have their social-security number temporarily emblazoned onto their body with henna ink.
