Head, shoulders, knees, and toes—the aestheticians and massage therapists at Healing Spirit Therapy tend to all of these parts with a range of face and body services. Tailoring massages to the specific needs of each client, therapists use long, gliding strokes or deep tissue manipulation to ease aches and promote relaxation. Meanwhile, facials not only exfoliate and brighten complexions, but can also increase blood-flow to the face, bolstering cell turnover.
Backed by a degree from the National Holistic Institute and a California state massage certificate, Cynthia Silva hones in on ailing backs and tense shoulders. As she manipulates muscles and joints, decompressing the clenched gridlock formed by sitting at a computer all day or sleeping in a bicycle basket, her clients can fix their eyes on the painted butterflies that fan the walls, their wings outstretched as they float away alongside the last remnants of each patient's stress and tension.
Cynthia offers multiple massage modalities that cater to a wide range of needs. Swedish massages offer an hour of pure relaxation, prenatal massages soothe the overworked joints of expecting mothers, and deep-tissue massages deactivate pains emanating from sub-muscular layers. Before blissfully wobbling out of the studio, clients can shop an array of Detox Skin Intervention products which use all-natural, vegan ingredients to moisturize and detoxify the skin along with nourishing doses of Dead Sea salt.
A practicing chiropractor since 1986, Doctor of Chiropractic Charles Musich supplements traditional chiropractic techniques with innovative and advanced solutions. For instance, to treat lower- and midback and neck pain, the doc might enlist the Gonstead method of chiropractic care, designed specifically to correct spinal misalignments. The gentle electrical currents of electro-acuscope, meanwhile, can catalyze the healing of injured tissues for quicker relief of torn muscles, tendonitis, and ligament sprains. Perhaps Dr. Musich’s best-known service, however, is neurocranial restructuring. By inflating a small balloon inside the nostril and throat, the doctor can “unlock” specific areas of the skull, resulting in relief from a variety of conditions ranging from TMJ to Alzheimer’s.
At The Beauty Lounge Salon and Day Spa, each technician undergoes meticulous training and ongoing education seminars to ensure luxuriously therapeutic facials, skin-smoothing waxes, and effective strategies for fighting hyperpigmentation and wrinkles. The spa occupies the space of a charming luxury townhome, with plump, purple couches and soft-light chandeliers conjuring the atmosphere of a grandmother’s parlor, and wall-to-wall accents of luxurious mahogany-hued hardwood evoking the image of an aristocratic lumberjack’s summer home.
