A bright reception area welcomes beauty-seekers into Friends Day Spa & Salon, where stylists transform manes with cuts, color, perms, and twisty updos, which will impress pillows at bedtime. Soothing facials pamper the remainder of clients’ heads, and nail techs add flair to handshakes and footshakes with manicures and pedicures. For full-body buffing, massage therapists remove knots from musculature, sometimes utilizing warm hot stones. Each spa service is performed in its own roomy area, separated from the rest of the 3,400-square-foot spa and salon. The space also has a locker room and a wet room equipped with a Vichy shower, which provides clients with a place to refresh between services.
Certified nail technician Kathy Cyrus has spent more than a decade pampering clients at spas and salons across Jacksonville. When her clients began asking if she could make house calls, Kathy jumped at the chance to combine a passion for entertaining with her nailcare expertise. Today, Kathy pampers her clients from the comfort of their own homes or fortresses of solitude, administering manicures, pedicures, and foot scrubs. She uses top-tier products such as OPI and CND polishes and stays abreast of the latest nail fashion trends such as magnetic polish, crackle polish, and playful decals.
At Doc Weight Loss, physicians keep a close eye on diet programs that spring from both natural and clinical medicine and are backed by current studies. The programs are customized for each individual patient, staying in step with their unique needs and goals.
After a thorough exam, dieters launch into low-calorie diets augmented by energy-boosting B12 injections, exercise regimes, and vitamin supplements. Staff members analyze vital signs, body-mass index, and body-fat percentage as pounds melt away, ensuring bodies stay healthy and strong enough to break scales with their wisdom, not their weight.
At TherapyWorks of Jacksonville, relaxation is only a side effect. The therapist-s main goals for treatments are more medically minded: treatment of injuries, pain relief, stress reduction, and improved quality of life for their clients. Founder James R. Lehman leads the team of licensed massage therapists and physical therapists, whose services cover common massage modalities, such as deep tissue and Swedish, as well as more specialized neuromuscular and orthopedic work. These therapists personalize each appointment to address a number of rehabilitative concerns, including relief for chronic neck and back tension, automobile and sports injuries, and the weight-bearing aches associated with pregnancy or watermelon smuggling.
All three TherapyWorks clinics strive to craft goal-oriented regimens for their visitors, focusing on concrete outcomes rather than merely suppressing symptoms. They also accept most insurance plans, provided patients have a physician's prescription for treatment.
At Blissful Wellness Medical Weight Loss Centers, Dr. Elyssa Blissenbach and her team of licensed medical professionals and counselors devote their medical expertise to combating obesity. They take a three-pronged approach to slimming clients: customized programs, top-shelf supplements, and constant support. Like snowflakes’ DNA strands, no two patients are alike—and so staff members carefully calibrate diet and supplement plans to suit each client's metabolism, condition, and body type. The program also provides a support system for clients, offering everything from individual therapy to group outings to help ensure long-term weight loss.
The bright treatment rooms within Skin Deep Studio & Day Spa evoke sun-drenched meadows of the Italian countryside, tricking clients into believing they've escaped to Tuscany for a European vacation or an anniversary screening of European Vacation. This warm, welcoming environment helps visitors feel at home as they receive skincare, massage, and nail services from a team of talented aestheticians and massage therapists. The staff also performs makeup applications, waxing services, and spa treatments designed specially for men.
