Even if they both suffer from a sore back, no two patients are treated the same way at Pinecrest Wellness Center. Clinic director Dr. Ronald Weinstein sees every person as a fresh case, and strives not only to counteract symptoms, but to trace them back to their source in order to prevent them from returning. He and his team combine several disciplines—including chiropractic care, physiotherapy, and acupuncture from Bill Reddy—to reach this goal. A course of treatment might cover rehabilitative exercises, spinal adjustments, or even relaxing massages from Linda Lee, whose experience as an international massage therapist has led her to clients such as Lady Gaga and Gavin Rossdale. And, to ensure patients are really on the road to recovery, the staff also takes the time to discuss nutrition and suggest healthier habits, such as making s'mores with cardboard instead of graham crackers.
Sue, the owner of Sunrise Hair Studio, brings 18 years of experience as an aesthetician to the treatment table. Along with a team of stylists and aestheticians, Sue delivers image-transforming services for every inch of skin and hair. In the salon, stylists whip up custom cuts and colors and employ the follicle-smoothing powers of Global Keratin’s formaldehyde-free hair-straightening treatment. Aestheticians use skin-friendly sugar and traditional waxes and nail techs pamper hands during chair-side manicures. Relaxing clients indulge in the beauty haven's charming garden area, a tranquil retreat where guests can enjoy refreshments while catching up on the latest celebrity gossip with the area's resident gnomes and traveling pack of pink flamingos.
At first glance, Good Day Total Health Clinic seems more like an opulent spa than a wellness center. Past the rich marble and plush furnishings in the lobby, vividly painted treatment rooms are interspersed with a serene fish pond and murals depicting cherry trees ironically holding apples. The varied, welcoming decor reflects the multidisciplinary approach to health provided by the doctors, specialists, and technicians who practice here. The team offers state of the art treatments for both wellness and beauty, from chiropractic care and acupuncture to rejuvenating massages and teeth-whitening treatments.
For the experienced athlete, it's no problem to just walk into a gym and put together a day's workout. For someone still learning the ropes, a little support can go a long way. This is what you get at Foundation Fitness. Trainers start with an meet-n-greet to help you articulate your fitness goals and design workouts to accomplish them. From there, clients can choose to continue 1-on-1 training, transition to small-group training, or attend boot camp classes that include complimentary nutritional plans. FF's staff isn't intent on just cutting you loose after a workout, either: you can elect to stick around for a massage-therapy session that helps stretch and relax newly worked out muscles.

Amidst the stark white and black décor of On Hair Salon, thoughtful stylists listen closely to their clients’ hairstyle ideas before they ever lift a pair of scissors. The team then tailors each cut, color, or style to fit the individual’s face and bone structure, sculpting each hairdo into a work of art. They can tame wild strands with Japanese straightening treatments and Brazilian blowouts, and add a pop of color with highlights. Rounding out the salon’s menu of services, Thai massages soothe tense muscles, while eyebrow tattooing redraws eyebrows lost by standing next to a sneezing dragon.
