Within an airy, mint-and-white clinic, Whole Health Wellness Center & MedSpa breathes new life into weight-loss regimens by incorporating modern technology alongside ancient Chinese methods, such as acupuncture, to curb hunger. Technicians also remove unsightly hair with the FDA-approved Candela GentleMax laser. Spa services including the organic hydrating facial revive the skin, while massages encourage relaxation and reflexology treatments facilitate energy flow. In the process, the staff incorporates as many natural and organic products as possible, many of which wait on the streamlined waiting area's glass shelves to be taken home or used to fill a kiddie pool.
Inside Manhattan Laser Spa, certified technicians use FDA-approved lasers to banish unwanted body hair, reduce the appearance of veins and vascular lesions, and combat signs of aging such as wrinkles, freckles, and sun spots.

As a board-certified anesthesiologist and licensed aesthetic physician who has even trained in cosmetic acupuncture, Dr. Roxana B. Kerns, M.D. is well-versed in nearly every type of anti-aging treatment. There's one she doesn't offer, however?invasive surgery. That's because she's mastered a range of techniques that accomplish what was once only achieved through surgical procedures.
For example, instead of subjecting patients to the pain of rhinoplasty or blepharoplasty, Dr. Kerns is able to smooth out the nose's profile with injectable fillers and banish dark circles under the eyes with fat-transfer techniques and laser treatments. She was also selected as an expert injector by the National Laser Institute, making her uniquely qualified to administer Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin injections that target fine lines on the face. Orchid Aesthetics also features an arsenal of laser technology designed to mend aesthetic issues of all types, including wrinkles, sagging skin, hyperpigmentation, unwanted hair, and spider veins.
In her quest to stamp out sun damage, Dr. Kerns recently developed her own line of organic skincare formulas that hydrate, boost collagen production, and reflect UV rays away from the face and onto the nearest pool party.
The anti-aging massage employs different Oriental techniques for men and women to treat gender-specific needs. Standard body massages employ heated stones to send relief deep into muscles and unwind knots buried beneath tissue and Kevlar vests. With 30 minutes in the sauna, guests can sweat out built-up toxins and further clear their minds after massage treatments.
The warm and wide smile of Tim Grae can disarm people. That beaming grin embodies the effusive and friendly nature that he uses to put clients at ease during massage sessions.

The therapists customize sessions according to the client's needs, using rehabilitative sports stretching to treat lingering aches and incorporating shiatsu pressure to target deep-seated tension. A master therapist with experience in Eastern medicine, Tim also leads workshops on the benefits of massage and the healing power of touch.
