Like many chiropractors, Doctor of Chiropractic Heidi Pickering offers nutrition and weight-loss services in addition to her pain-relieving spinal adjustments and massage therapy. But unlike other chiropractors, Heidi really practices what she preaches—she is a fitness model who has taken first place in a Muscle Madness competition where she showed off her incredibly toned physique.
At Paradise Palms Chiropractic & Spa, she helps clients achieve their own weight-loss goals with services such as nonsurgical body contouring, Power Vibe vibration muscle toning, and body wraps.
The doctors at Envizion Medical help their patients uncover optimal health and balance in their lives through hormone-replacement therapy, weight-loss programs, and food-allergy testing. The therapies and methods tend to focus on hormone optimization, which doctors believe keeps people feeling more youthful and energetic than a kitten rollerblading through catnip.
Nu Image Med Spa Tampa brings medical expertise into a spa-like environment. Expertly aimed laser beams take on multiple tasks, alternately nipping hair follicles in the bud or restoring aging skin to youthful opulence. FDA–approved injectable such as Restylane and Botox ward off wrinkles and lift sagging countenances. Topical treatments such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion reduce signs of aging by sloughing off dull outer layers and unveiling new, fresh skin. Nu Image Med Spa Tampa's practitioners hire private detectives to keep tabs on the beauty industry's latest research and accept only the most effective skincare products by companies such as Obagi and Skin Medica for use in conjunction with beauty treatments.
Under the supervision of physician and skin care specialist Dr. Eyad Alsabbagh, Dania Medical Esthetique’s skilled staff helps clients achieve aesthetic goals with a diverse palette of cosmetic and medical services. Waxing services, and injections of Botox help bolster appearances for the short-term, while laser hair removal and permanent makeup can last a lifetime, or until donning irreversible gorilla suits.
Licensed massage therapist Heidi Garrett soothes bodies and minds with customized massage techniques and alternative therapies such as reiki, crystal therapy, and chakra balancing. Heidi incorporates techniques from Swedish massage, trigger-point therapy, myofascial release, and reflexology to accommodate each session to her clients' unique needs and wellness plans. Long, flowing strokes alternate with firm taps as Heidi focuses on pressure points to reduce stress and help heal muscles pulled while shot-putting SUVs out of stolen parking spaces.
Gold picture frames, curlicue chandeliers, and animal prints accent the chocolate-hued drawing room where hair and nails receive royal treatments at Oliva Salon & Spa. Digits delight in herbs and essential oils made from pressed, vine-ripened rhinestones before nails are slicked with polish from shellac and Axxium by OPI. When owner and certified Alfaparf color instructor Zan Oliva isn't training stylists throughout Central Florida, she's using her 20 years of experience to pamper her own clients' strands with dimensional and corrective coloring.
