Rapha Rehab's therapists combine the disciplines of physiotherapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, and massage into cohesive treatments for clients. After providing clients with a cup of hot coffee or tea, the staff leads them to private treatments rooms. Here, therapists work to relieve tension and pain through massages, which may use natural and ayurvedic oils to reduce friction between the therapists gliding fingers and the client's skin. The wellness experts also help rehab injuries and treat conditions such as chronic bronchitis, IBS, and multiple sclerosis.

The staffers may have clients take advantage of Rapha Rehab's air-therapy rooms and its recreation area, which boasts a variety of weights and cardiovascular equipment. Plus, they can outfit clients with orthotic shoes, inserts, and even prosthetics.

Years ago, licensed aesthetician "Eleni" Sophia Sarantakos noticed a trend. She was working at a prestigious spa and often saw clients’ skin respond negatively to supposedly beneficial treatments. She began conducting her own research on the ingredients in skincare products and started a search for something better. She found it in Dr. Baumann's skincare products, a German line concocted without parabens, harmful chemical preservatives, fragrances, mineral oils, or animal products.

At Skin So Real, aestheticians use those products to purify and rejuvenate skin during Bionome facials. They clear away acne with ingredients such as lavender and chamomile, hydrate dry complexions with rose and sandalwood oils, and use resurfacing fruit extracts to diminish fine lines or hieroglyphs etched into the face. Because the salon’s products are packaged with environmentally responsible materials, they benefit the earth as well as each client’s appearance.

Healing relies on natural ingredients and formulas to clear up issues such as colds, high blood pressure, and acne with botanicals and supplements affixed with tiny superhero capes.

During appointments, the staff?who are led by Dr. Lorenzo Diana?may treat insomnia with acupuncture, boost a client's immune system with detoxification, or provide client-centered counselling for emotional wellness.
