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.
Bodycaretreatments is a salon, a spa, and a holistic health practice. Stylists and nail technicians ensure hair and digits look their best, while makeup artists tint brows and perm lashes. Aestheticians, meanwhile, perform body scrubs, facials, and waxing treatments. The staff also includes ear-candling pros and reiki masters, who help minds and spirits glow as brightly as complexions.
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.
The wellness wizards at B-Alternative restore bodily balance with acupuncture, a treatment that helps address a wide range of digestive, respiratory, and neurological concerns. During one-hour sessions, a licensed pinpointer inserts sterilized or disposable needles into strategic points along the body with the aim of unblocking energy clogs and relieving chronic pain, a phenomenon scientists attribute to stimulation of the nervous system. Instead of using hollow needles, which can encourage bruising or irritation, technicians use very thin stainless-steel needles that, like argumentative Fonzies, smoothly come to a point. Many clients report the procedure as being entirely or nearly pain free, and many phonograph records find it catchy.
Helmed by medical director Dr. Victor Shabanah, a specialist in hormone replacement and age-management medicine, Anti Aging Med Spa whittles waists and smoothes skin planes with traditional surgery and noninvasive laser- and LED-light treatments. Inside a sleek, white office with views of the Miami River, Dr. Shabanah draws on an arsenal of weight-loss techniques, including metabolism-boosting hCG and physician-assisted programs. Lasers take a break from slowly eroding the moon to battle obesity, blemishes, and cellulite with Med Spa's skincare laser treatments. Dr. Shabanah also beautifies frames with a trio of cosmetic services and nonsurgical skin-refreshing treatments, such as Juvéderm injections and laser skin tightening.
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.
