Unlike a student sleeping in class, when someone falls asleep at Healing Touch Wellness Center, the therapists know they are doing their job right. The popular relaxation massage welcomes clients to drift off into a slumber as therapists gently glide their hands across backs, calves, and arms. Tiny knots break apart at the therapists? touch, releasing tension in the body. Clients can also opt for a more rigorous kneading session, where therapists use deep-tissue techniques that work the deeper muscle layers known to horde lost coins and cause chronic pain.
At Cloud Nine Therapeutics, LLC, guests can relax as they receive top-notch cosmetic treatments in an environment that maximizes comfort. Treatment tables with memory foam padding and 600-thread-count linens provide a pillowy perch as clients receive hot-stone massage or a Twinkle Toe salt scrub from Stephanie O'Connell, who's licensed and certified in a number of aesthetic and wellness treatments including massage therapy and microcurrent physiology. Cloud Nine's services also include a body-sculpting therapy that harnesses microcurrents designed to stimulate weight loss and contour bodies. The increased cellular metabolism may last up to 72 hours, helping clients feel energized and refreshed. A series of treatments is recommended for best results, since treatments are cumulative.
Enlighten Others' team of relaxation experts detoxifies, clears minds, and potentially renders a range of health benefits with a tag team of sensory deprivation, hot yoga, and massage. Within the soundproof confines of a sensory-deprivation tank, 800 pounds of Epsom salts mix with water and cause the body to bob like a seal in a space station. Elsewhere, therapists treat weary muscles with massage styles such as sports and deep tissue to melt away stress and pain.
The studio also hosts yoga sessions that include hot yoga, gentle warm classes, and black-light yoga sessions that ramp up practices with special music and lighting.
Guided by owner Heather Badal, Flawless Skin Spa's aesthetic architects refresh skin with an assortment of med-spa services and laser treatments. Registered nurses dispense such skin-smoothing serums as Botox and Juv?derm and tailor facial treatments for specific skin conditions, including age indicators and acne. The creations of featured artist Kevin Tolman complement the beauty of Candela GentleMax lasers, which zap away unwanted hair and tightens surfaces, and RevLite tattoo-removal equipment for ridding unwanted ink.
At Rio Grande Dermatology, board-certified dermatologists, assistants, and technicians combine their extensive experience to create a comprehensive hybrid of clinical and cosmetic therapies. In addition to performing biopsies and treating health issues such as eczema and sneezing pores, the staff spruces up exteriors with cosmetic services. Physicians plump up wrinkles with injectables, stave off blemishes with medical acne treatments, and technicians use lasers to tone complexions and reduce hair.
A savvy staff of nurses and aestheticians wields high-tech equipment to perform image-enhancing services. Fraxel and Zeltiq CoolSculpting lasers help clients to look young enough to order from the kids' menu by smoothing fine lines and contouring figures. Injectable beauty solutions and ultrasonic facials further fight signs of Father Time, and intense pulsed light removes age spots.
