Patients never go under the knife at My Wellness Center 4 U. Instead of surgery, Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine Margaret Yearwood and her staff offer noninvasive services such as custom weight-loss programs and non-surgical facelifts. In the skincare realm, licensed aestheticians purge complexions of toxins, impurities, and freckle jokes by performing facials and anti-aging treatments, and add drama to the eyes with eyelash extensions. Massage therapists, meanwhile, liberate bodies of pain and tension through a variety of methods such as deep-tissue and hot-stone massage.
At Laser Trim Contours, a team works to stress the importance of healthy diet and exercise in weight loss. They also understand how difficult weight loss can be even with proper nutrition, and wield Zerona lasers to help melt fat cells. Inside the soothing, spa-like environs, clients get comfy in their own private treatment rooms that block encroaching eyes and clumsy boom-mic operators.
The benefits of massage are immense: it improves the immune system, alleviates chronic pain, and even reduces high blood pressure. Massage therapist Chris Cherry aims to improve his clients’ total wellness with 60- or 90-minute massage with salt scrubs and full-body mud masks. He delivers massages in his office, or travels to clients’ homes or bus stops for a relaxing session.
Mesos Cosmetic & Laser Center’s medically trained team staves off the advances of aging using FDA-approved Botox injections, with results that last up to four months. Skilled doctors consult with patients about facial creases such as crow’s feet and worry and laugh lines, and chronicle wrinkles with digital photos and topographical maps carved in cold butter to track improvement after the procedure. The formula floods muscle tissue, drowning out nerve impulses that cause faces to look like dry riverbeds. Each injection area may take up to 15 minutes and cause slight discomfort and bruising that vanishes quickly following the treatment, which requires no downtime.

Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
I believe our mental state is deeply connected to our physical well-being. What I enjoy most is seeing clients leave my office with a smile, either from stress relief or pain relief. I feel like it's my small contribution in making the world a happier place.
The licensed aestheticians at Vitality Wellness and Aesthetics extract the healing power of seaweed to whip up a facial formula tailored to each client. To start the 60-minute session, a deep cleansing expunges grease from pore recesses and erases lines from games of connect-the-freckles. Next, the aesthetician analyzes the client's skin before blending a seaweed base cream tailored to the pigmentation, elasticity, and moisture level of each unique complexion. As the mask labors away—deposing dead skin cells and restoring the face to healthy hydration levels—a hand and décolletage massage glides across tension fault lines. The mask then lifts from the face to reveal the glowing features beneath, sealed in with moisturizer and SPF that protects against the damaging effects of UV rays or cuddle sessions with sun lamps.
