Gloria Ross' life changed in 1984. She had dabbled in herbs and fasting regimens as means of detoxifying her body, but it was 28 years ago that she experienced her first colonic. This fateful cleansing treatment led to her to a career in colon hydrotherapy. She opened Eterna Holistic Therapies and now shares this drug-free practice with others, alongside a staff of fellow I-ACT-certified practitioners.
The skilled staff at NamasDay Wellness Center believes that healing comes from within, and nurtures both inner and outer beauty with holistic and aesthetic treatments performed in a peaceful environment. A quartet of licensed massage therapists promotes full-body health with therapeutic techniques, reflexology, and other modalities. Aestheticians, meanwhile, rejuvenate scalps with jojoba, banish errant hairs with wax, and perform chemical peels to reveal the treasure map hidden on your forehead.
Bellevue Center for Health?s massive staff of chiropractic doctors, licensed acupuncturists, and male and female licensed massage practitioners offers an equally sprawling list of services. A waiting room equipped with leather couches and chairs greets guests before treatments such as acupuncture or naturopathy. The professionals search for natural cures to ailments such as fatigue and stress, and chiropractic care and massage therapy can iron out cramped muscles and aching backs, which are commonly caused by craning one?s head to see the massage therapist. Other services include allergy testing and orthotics.
Doctor of Chiropractic Steven Kaplan doesn't deal in the symptoms of ailments; he deals with the ailments themselves. He employs x-rays, thorough examinations, and nearly three decades of experience to track down pain at its source, which much of the time is the back or neck. It's here where he hunts for impinged nerves in the spinal column that can disrupt the communication between the brain and body, leading not only to sore backs and stiff necks but also, possibly, to trouble sleeping and poor digestion. Once located, he administers such drug-free, noninvasive techniques as adjustment or spinal decompression.
The staff at Aveda Caruh Salon knows what it?s like to want to bring your inner beauty to the outside. As their website says, ?We think our exterior of our building looks awful and are glad that ?beauty is on the inside.?? They may not be able to do much with the exterior, but owner Cyndi DeSoto and her salon and spa teams bring the beauty of their clients to the forefront with hair and skin services that use plant-based Aveda products and organic essential oils squeezed from delicate flower organs.
Since it opened in 1988, the salon has not only expanded its space and gone from styling mullets to long layers and pixie cuts, it?s also been voted one of the Top 200 Salons in America by Salon Today magazine. It isn?t just the precision cuts and colors, clarifying facials, or muscle-soothing massages that make it a top salon; it?s also the exuberant spirit of the staff. On average, Caruh donates about $40,000 per year to local charities, and every first Thursday, the salon closes for three hours for the staff to meet, bond, and celebrate successes.
A native of Poland, Celina Lewandowski first moved to the United States in 1991?where, for 12 years, she provided home care for elderly patients suffering from eating disorders and intestinal problems. She eventually discovered colon hydrotherapy, became a certified colon hydrotherapist and endermologie technician, and decided to open her own clinic and use the gentle body-cleansing system to relieve intestinal dysfunction.
At her clinic, European Rejuvenation Center, she helps fight bloating, irritable bowels, constipation, and fatigue with a LIBBE open colon-hydrotherapy system. This system is easy to self-operate and, like a treehouse on the moon, affords clients as much privacy as they desire. Celina also combats toxins with ionic footbaths, nutritional therapy, lipomassage, endermologie, and infrared-sauna sessions.
