The therapists at Medical Massage Professionals don't simply point and push. Instead, they tailor their services to each client's needs—something they've been doing for the last decade. Founder Marian Sotelo-Paz has more than 20 years of industry experience under her fingers. At three locations around Miami, she's built a team of similarly seasoned professionals. All that experience is reflected in the team's versatility, which allows it to offer massage services for pain management, injury recovery, simple relaxation, and a variety of other ailments and issues.
At Azul Wellness, Dr. Erica Vislobokova and her team take a holistic approach to wellness that integrates chiropractic techniques, massage, and controlled stretching. Dr. Vislobokova's gentle adjusting technique releases tiny gas bubbles held hostage between askew vertebrae, helping spines straighten and cease making loud burping noises. Adjustments aside, the team applies the other treatments in her repertoire to her patients' complaints as needed, bolstering circulation with massage or supporting injured muscles with kinesio tape.
After graduating from the elite Vidal Sassoon Academy, John Toboas became an instructor there and later served as a hair designer or artistic director at numerous salons. At John Taboas Salon, he manages a staff of savvy stylists who transform tresses, remove unwanted spider veins and hair with lasers, and lessen the effects of aging with injectables such as Botox and Juvéderm.
The team at Garden General Services beckons passersby onto the path toward overall wellness paved by physical therapy, spa services, and cosmetic treatments. Licensed therapists help clients overcome the pain and discomfort of injury through rehabilitative sessions, and alleviate chronic tension and deep muscle aches with therapeutic and relaxation massages. The center's Botox and Restylane dermal fillers turn back the clock to a time when faces were still smooth, wrinkle-free, and had airplane spoons flying toward them. Experienced aestheticians also strive to improve visitors' self-confidence through skin-tightening radio-frequency treatments and advice on how to reduce acne.
Under the direction of an MD, the team at West Miami Health Center erases the line between health and beauty. The on-staff physician conducts blood tests and checkups, while the team of aestheticians oversees the relaxation process with facials, scrubs, and peels. Injured elbows sigh with relief inside paraffin-wax baths or noninvasive laser therapy, and tense muscles drink in heat from smooth river rocks during hot-stone massages.
