After Emile Bouari lost 40 pounds, he was inspired to found Bouari Clinic and help others achieve the same results. Today, the clinic's several locations have assisted over 30,000 people in achieving their weight-loss goals with FDA-registered supplements and prescriptions. Bouari, along with a coalition of medical directors who oversee individual clinics, lends a supportive helping hand to clients without resorting to intense exercise regimes or fad diets consisting of celery-scented mist.
Stylists at 9037 Salon reach above their heads to pull down their blow dryers, suspended from the ceiling from retractable cords, then use calculated gusts to put the finishing touches on clients' freshly cut and colored manes. Using Davines and Moroccanoil products, stylists add dimension with highlights, rich single-process hues, and a microscopic series of mirrors. Deep-conditioning treatments hydrate and moisturize strands to combat frizz, while keratin treatments fight unwanted kinks in a semi-permanent process.
The salon's modern decor complements stylists’ advanced techniques, with clean, white walls interrupted by exposed-brick accents, blue ductwork, and high-glossed concrete floors. Pops of artwork over the shampoo sinks add a splash of color.
When Leslee Wilburn realized Las Vegas lacked a family-friendly massage practice, she decided to open one herself and found the perfect name, fittingly, in her young daughter, Kaela. Kaela’s middle name, Ilan, means family tree and symbolizes the philosophy Wilburn founded her massage studio on, namely the aim to teach people of all ages the benefits of massage. Whether receiving a massage or learning how to give one, families can spend quality relaxation time together within Wilburn’s space.
A licensed and nationally certified massage therapist, Wilburn performs massages for kids and adults in a candlelit treatment room. While she eases parents' quotidian stress, children wait their turn in a cozy, home-like lounge area complete with a television and comfortable sofas. During kids' massages, Wilburn helps young muscles and joints develop balance and coordination, and she relieves the stress accumulated from cooking dinner day in and day out with plastic toy food. She also teaches massage classes for couples or new moms and hosts Massage n' Mingle parties where guests set up their own food and drink in the refreshment area to celebrate birthdays or ladies nights out.
There's no shortage of spas in Las Vegas, but Elements Therapeutic Massage has already managed to distinguish itself since its grand opening in June 2013. It's easy to see why?the studio's licensed therapists focus on results above all else, and each of their numerous massage techniques has been carefully selected to alleviate chronic pain and improve muscles' range of motion. Elements divides its service menu into six styles, which range from light Swedish strokes to penetrating trigger-point techniques. The therapists may apply a combination of massage styles depending on your individual needs; sometimes, they even supplement their handiwork with hot stones and soothing tap-dance routines.
The aestheticians at Om Threading & Beauty Bar root their beauty techniques in tradition. Instead of tediously tweezing out hairs one by one, the staff draws from hair-removal antiquity with threading techniques. During a threading appointment, a professional twists special cotton thread imported from India across the client’s skin, lifting out fuzz by the roots without messy waxes or chemicals. The staff also spruces up skin with professional PCA peels and Dead Sea mud facials.
