Medical director Dr. Eric Weinstock draws upon his two areas of expertise, psychiatry and bariatrics, as he helps patients outsmart their extra pounds. By combining vitamins and appetite suppressants (upon doctor approval) with moderate exercise and confidence-boosting counseling, he is able to lighten bathroom-scale loads where other, less personalized programs have failed. And by helping dieters slim down, he is reducing their risk of health issues such as diabetes, hypertension, stroke, and respiratory problems.
At 7th Heaven Hair Salon, nail maven Pam Brooks deftly wields advanced polish technology from CND into long-lasting mani-pedis. During the two-hour session, Pam begins by buffing, trimming, and shaping keratin cubes with professional precision. A soothing hand-and-foot soak leaves limb ends feeling soft and clean, and an aromatic massage relaxes palms and peds, leaving them stress-free, tender, and easier to chew. The shiny gel-like Shellac gloss can last up to two weeks without chipping or smudging, and treatments take place in a private corner of the salon so as not to suffer any interruption from other salon patrons or traveling blow-dryer salesmen.
Clients often linger at the Mens Dept. Barbershop, even well after their haircuts and shaves come to a close. The shop functions much like a clubhouse for grown-ups, with dart boards, a pool table, and leather couches set in front of an HD TV. The staff keeps beer on tap, or it can mix up root beer floats for younger visitors (or the young at heart). Indeed, the barbershop serves as an ideal place to watch a game or play some cards, but the most important events still happen at its 10 barber chairs, which are split into two separate rooms and parallel dimensions. For a signature cut, barbers shampoo and massage the scalp before cutting hair and shaving the neckline for good measure?complete with a hot-towel treatment to melt away any tension. The team's expertise in getting rid of hair also extends to four levels of shaving services as well as facial and body waxing.
Sea salts and paraffin wax transform nail treatments into deluxe manicures and pedicures at LV Nails. Feet step out of socks and fingers shake off puppets to sink into a warm bath filled with sea salts. After skin has softened during its swim, an adroit technician buffs away calluses, and a peppermint salt scrub further exfoliates the local epidermis. Lotion and warm stones facilitate a massage, which unwinds tense patty-cakers and relaxes feet stressed from wearing shoes made from LSATs. Melted paraffin seals in hydration, and warm towels sheathe digits while emitting soft puffs of steam.
