As a physician and the owner and medical director of Nu U MedSpa and Laser Center, Dr. Priyanka Gambhir takes the time to personally perform each aesthetic medical procedure at her center. Dr. Gambhir firmly believes that these procedures should work toward restoring patients’ natural beauty as opposed to reinventing an entirely new look. To accomplish this, she relies on clinically proven techniques and the most current med-spa technologies she can find, including Alma and Cutera laser systems and skincare products infused with powdered microchips.
Members of Florida's Naples Philharmonic Orchestra who are sore after 10 hours of rehearsal. Preoperative and postoperative patients dealing with or recuperating from complications from MS and scoliosis. Certified massage therapist Terry Andino has treated them all. At Montclair Massage Therapy and Wellness, she draws upon more than 15 years of experience, catering to clients with custom approaches based around each individual's needs.
Inside Montclair's first all green building, she soothes muscles with 30-, 60-, and 90-minute massages rooted in such styles as therapeutic, prenatal, reflexology, and trigger-point release. Terry also creates personalized massage programs for patrons to receive at home, at work, or from the driver sitting next to them in traffic jams. Montclair Massage Therapy and Wellness's certified Usui Reiki Master Lorraine Melendez also becalms guests with holistic practices such as reiki and crystal healing.
The staff of Montclair Therapeutic Massage Center doesn’t believe that comfort should come at the cost of environmental responsibility. Parking spots outside the shop hold places for fuel-efficient cars, and ADA-approved showers treat bicycling clients to a pre-massage rinse. The center’s certified massage therapist, Mary Wetherill, boasts a wealth of knowledge about human physiology that she gathered studying neuromuscular therapy, writing a book on treating diabetes with massage, and attending a pre-medical dissection course. With an advanced knowledge of the human body, Mary tends to bodies plagued by pains, migraines, and curved spinal alignment with a handful of massage styles. Her co-worker, Cristy May SyCip, leads relaxing restorative-yoga sessions, holding a single pose or a slow-paced snoring cadence for 3–10 minutes.
Hibiscus Therapeutic Center's professionals regale bodies with salon and spa services tailored to each visitor's specific needs. Dexterous hands melt tension like it's a Lego in the microwave during custom massage sessions, where strategic bodywork can take the form of soothing Swedish strokes, intense deep-tissue techniques, or lymphatic-drainage therapy, along with many other modalities. In private spa rooms, flickering candles cast a soft glow on their surroundings while clients receive lush facials and body wraps, containing calming ingredients such as seaweed and eucalyptus leaf. On the way out the door, customers can peruse a library of scents and skin products designed to easily transport therapeutic vibes to homes and subway cars.
The licensed body sculptors at Essential Body Contours help to smooth puckered stretches of cellulite with soothing FDA-approved Endermologie Lipomassage treatments. During each 40-minute treatment, a skilled technician employs the suction and massage capabilities of a mechanical module designed to boost lymphatic flow and circulation and tickle stubborn fat cells into releasing their precious lipids. Though most patients require at least 3–10 treatments for optimal results, local blood and lymph flow may increase up to 400% and skin-firming collagen production may improve up to 100% after a single procedure. As patients relax in the comfort of their specially designed Endermowear bodysuit, the healing strokes of the robo-treatment evoke a feeling similar to a deep therapeutic massage or a warm hug from a vacuum cleaner.
Along with enlivening the head-bristles of women, men, and kids with creative and corrective cuts, the team of stylists at Alicia's Hair Design keep the inside of their own noggins looking chic with continuous educational courses. The salon's junior and senior scissor-wizards remodel ponytails, cowlicks, and frayed cockatoo crests with cuts for women ($60+) and men ($30+) before topping off tufts with optional hair treatment add-ons ($12–$15) such as Keratin Shine and Volume Extend for extra durability and nourishment. Children (ages 1–13) can strut the playground in slow-motion with trims ($15–$45) or fast-motion with buzz cuts ($20–$25). Blow-dry styling ($30+) soothes frazzled fuzz with a flat-iron or hot-roller treatment, and updos ($75+) give prom-bound belles a place to hide emergency hairspray and fire extinguishers for emergency hairspray emergencies.
