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.
The Body Cleansing and Detoxification Center, LLC, is not a safe place for toxins. The center's cadre of certified cleansing consultants administers a range of services?including seasonal and cellular cleanses?on their ceaseless mission to inspire holistic wellness by evicting pernicious elements from the body. Their arsenal also includes mechanical devices and Zerona laser body-slimming treatments, which, much like an elevator ride with a fire breather, quickly burns away excess fat.
As surgical director of NYC Surgical Associates, Dr. David Greuner is tasked with staying on the cutting edge of minimally invasive procedures that require as little downtime as possible from his patients? fast-paced lives. However, the double board-certified surgeon's reach isn't limited to those who come into the office. As a past contributor to The Dr. Oz Show, The Doctors, and the news broadcasts of both ABC and CBS, Dr. Greuner often finds himself addressing a nationwide audience.
Of course, he earned his spot as one of his specialty's go-to experts through years of training and innovation. As a pioneer of No-Knife EVLT, Dr. Greuner took much of the pain out of spider- and varicose-vein treatments, creating a system that closes blood vessels with a laser instead of a switchblade. His efforts earned him a Top Surgeon designation from Consumers' Research Council of America three years in a row and professional leadership roles as a diplomate of the American Board of Surgery and a fellow of the International College of Surgeons. They also translated into professional success; with six offices throughout the New York metro area, Dr. Greuner now oversees a team of practitioners that specializes in minimally invasive vascular and cosmetic procedures.
After more than 30 years as a registered nurse, Karin Johnson decided that she wanted to continue helping people, but in a new way. She then became intrigued by Chinese medicine, and later founded AcuSource Healing as a way to treat patients with a more personal, holistic approach. The center?s diverse staff??which includes an occupational therapist, nutritionist, and licensed massage therapist??makes pain a distant memory with services such as cupping, acupuncture, sotai, and foot reflexology. Through hair mineral analysis, the team can find the presence of heavy metals that can make bodies feel sluggish and convince brains that they enjoy Black Sabbath. Microlight rejuvenation, meanwhile, boosts collagen production and smoothes fine lines and wrinkles.
Using organic products that are free of parabens, trained aestheticians administer nine different types of facials with products and techniques customized for all skin types. Facial varietals include acne facials, balancing facials, and the Balneo signature facial, during which an aesthetician applies a peel, massages muscles, and slathers on two hydrating masks. For bodies, they shoo away stress and lurking pet parrots with multiple massage modalities such as aromatherapy massage, hot-stone massage, deep tissue, Swedish, and reflexology. They also combine their services into relaxing spa days, ranging in duration from 90 minutes to more than 2 hours.
Rays of sunlight peer through windows, illuminating muted, earth-toned walls as visitors are escorted to their happy places by zen meditation music and European-style spa treatments. Such scenes are the norm at Sunflower Day Spa, where aestheticians focus primarily on skincare and body-slimming treatments customized to each client's needs. The menu runs the gamut of spa services that focus on relaxation and beautification, including a European facial with a skin analysis and an array of massages such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and Japanese hot-stone. Sunflower's Italian-made EMS machines help clients fit into an old pair of favorite jeans or a dollhouse guest room by evicting the body's most stubborn fat deposits.
