For Body Beautiful's team of cosmetic experts, it’s not enough to simply treat patients’ skin, veins, or cellulite. The med-spa’s staff is also focused on helping patients understand the issues they’re facing and how they can be treated most effectively, which is why all patients begin their relationship with the spa with a personal consultation. Only then does Body Beautiful draw on its arsenal of high-tech services, including treatments that include diode-laser hair removal, tattoo removal, and fractional skin resurfacing and rejuvenation designed to minimize skin irritation. The team also uses lasers—along with peels, ultrasound facials, microdermabrasion, and other approaches—to combat acne and spider veins, and its laser toenail fungus removal helps prepare feet for warm-weather footwear. To complement its other technological techniques, Body Beautiful also offers body-contouring wraps, which relies on a mixture of radio frequency, infrared light, fillers and Botox, and massage to help defend against cellulite and assist patients in reshaping their figures.
The doctors at Advanced Vein Center specialize in minimally invasive surgery, phlebology, and interventional radiology, making them a trusted team for vanquishing spider veins, varicose vessels, and Trivial Pursuit opponents. They employ a trio of techniques when battling vascular conditions: noninvasive laser therapies, sclerotherapy injections, and radio-frequency powered VNUS ClosureFast. To ensure patients know which treatment is right for them, the doctors offer free vein screenings at all of their locations.
From the outside, Resolutions Med Spa has the look of a rural country house––a quality that continues inside to its pastel-hued walls, wood accents, and plush, high-backed pedicure sofas. Amid these cozy accents, guests may partake in a mélange of beautification services, ranging from microdermabrasion and chemical peels to waxing and makeup consultations. The spa also employs a licensed massage therapist who can ease chronic tension with hot-stone therapy and restorative deep-tissue bodywork.
At Melody’s Massage studio, licensed massage therapists harness the therapeutic techniques of ancient Hawaiian healers during traditional lomi lomi massage sessions. Pain and stress head for the getaway car as long, gliding strokes ripple down backs, with practitioners delivering nurturing kneads with the aid of deft hands, elbows, and forearms. Two therapists team up for the tandem massage to jointly manipulate in balance the body's left and right sides for clients with extra muscle tension and problematic lumps of coal. Faux island getaways unfold in one of the studio’s private massage rooms, where warm incandescent lights ease tired eyes, cool sheets enfold bodies, and an active volcano quietly warms the therapist’s dinner.

Nearly a quarter of a century of experience has taught Dr. Robb Fishman that chiropractic treatments should involve the muscles as well as the spine. He sees bones and soft tissue as a system that work in tandem, and his gentle spinal adjustments incorporate massage techniques to ease out tension as well as nudge misaligned discs back into place.
