The serenity of the Atlantic waters doesn’t end at the beachfront. A few blocks away stands Dermal~Care Esthetics & Wellness Centre, which parallels the soothing waves lapping against the shore with a holistic, tranquil environment.

The staff—which variously boasts education at the Florida Health Academy and authority as an oncology-certified aesthetician—administers each treatment at a leisurely pace, and ensures that it is as personalized as someone with a birthmark in the shape of their own logo.

Chiropractic care isn’t just about alleviating pain. According to Naples Family Health & Wellness, “It’s about learning, understanding, and taking care of your body to improve your quality of life.” The board-certified chiropractic physician who oversees the center, along with other licensed health and skincare practitioners, wants to educate patients about chiropractic care and other natural health therapies so they're able to take an active role in restoring and maintaining their health. And whenever a patient goes in for a treatment, such as a chiropractic adjustment, nutrition consultation, sports massage, or a facial, the staff tailors the treatment to the patient's specific needs after a consultation or a dream-journal reading.
