Soon to be the subjects of a reality show airing on HDNet, this casual salon’s bikini-clad staff of licensed stylists charms the curls of men, women, and children within warm, beach-themed surroundings. Locks relinquish sand, seashells, and stowaway sea monkeys during a thorough sudsing that preludes the 20-minute haircut, which is tailored to each client’s desires and personal style. As fingers lull pent-up tension from weary noggins, peepers can peruse the colorful interior’s vivid artwork and wall-mounted surfboards, which reflect flickers from the lobby’s sprawling flat-screen TV.
With their LightSheer diode laser and Palomar IPL system, the specialists at The Medispa at Shrewsbury can fix almost any skin issue clients throw their way. The devices release focused bursts of energy that, when adjusted to suit the client’s skin type, can zap away unwanted hairs, erase tattoos, or lighten blemishes such as leg veins and acne scars. Meanwhile, Dr. Steven Davis—a board-certified plastic surgeon who was featured on The Doctors—works with his staff to combat wrinkles and fine lines with injectables such as Botox and Restylane. To help clients navigate the spa’s service menu and complex system of lava streams, complimentary consultations divulge facts about potential treatment options to ensure informed decision making.
Helmed by board-certified rejuvenation maven Dr. Anthony Lombardi, The Lombardi Plastic Surgery Center temporarily erases unwanted frown lines, crow’s feet, and other facial signs of aging, leaving behind smooth countenances, with Dysport treatments. During the nonsurgical procedure, the doctor carefully injects small amounts of Dysport’s Botulinum toxin type A into furrowed facial regions. The service temporarily decrees a cease-and-desist order on the cantankerous muscles that cause wrinkles, relaxing contractions and helping clients achieve a fine-line-free, youthful visage without having to embark on lengthy pilgrimages to mythical fountains flowing with baby formula. The silky-smooth results typically last three to four months.
David Marron remembers a day when he was in middle school, kneeling atop a pew during Mass and clasping his hands together in prayer. His back, already strained at a young age from participating in a number of sports, sent pulses of pain to his knees. The pain overwhelmed him and he fainted, startling the Catholic-school peers around him. David's mother, concerned for the wellbeing of her son, decided to take him to a chiropractor. The treatments quickly helped to rebuild the strength in his body, and sparked young David's desire to pursue a career in chiropractic.
Since becoming a board-certified chiropractor in 1984, Doctor of Chiropractic David Marron has completed numerous post-graduate studies, garnered several certifications, and opened a center focused on treating ailments with a combination of holistic modalities. The team at Marron Wellness Center creates personalized healing plans for patients of all ages, whose aches and pains may meet their fate with any blend of techniques from chiropractic, acupuncture, physical therapy, and massage therapy.
The facility houses multiple treatment rooms, including three chiropractic rooms, two acupuncture rooms, and one decompression room, plus two separate waiting areas to ensure that all visitors can score a seat for themselves and their favorite cat figurine.
Physical therapy, pain management, and chiropractic care are the three primary disciplines of the practice, which aims to construct strong relationships between clinicians and patients. Staff members also work to find similar connections between the systems of the body, which functions best when all of its components work in harmony. By doing this, they relieve chronic pain and guide bodies toward wellness without prescription drugs. The team counts a family doctor and an internal physician among its ranks, which include physical therapists, chiropractors, and a pain-management expert, which is also what some sports fans call their favorite team?s coach. Their areas of expertise extend to acupuncture, massage therapy, and stress management, all part of a comprehensive roster of treatments to usher holistic relief and health into achy frames.
Before opening Believe Skin Care Studio, owner Lauryn Allen spent two years at the John Barrett Salon at Bergdorf Goodman in New York City. She learned much while tending to her base of big-city clients, and she brings all of that knowledge—as well as 13 years of general spa experience—to her own charming studio in Oakhurst. Lauryn and her staff cater to all skin types with facials that flush dirt from pores and waxing services that swipe away unwanted fuzz. Various makeup wands summon cherry-red lips, tinted lashes, smoky eyes, and orange hopscotch courts on the studio’s floor. Skilled therapist Candice plies her nimble fingers during massages in modalities ranging from soothing Swedish to penetrating deep tissue.
