When it comes to skincare, Ralphann Forrest seemingly does it all. The licensed aesthetician—a 21-year veteran—cleanses skin, administers scalp and facial massages, and harnesses microcurrent technology to target wrinkles, discoloration, and age spots. This MAC Pro makeup artist also can supplement natural beauty with MAC and Avon products for weddings, proms, or particularly glamorous trips to the DMV.
Massage therapists deft hands ease relaxation into bodies via a range of modalities that help to melt physical and emotional stress, detoxify the body, and diminish aches. The team at the studio strives to uproot embedded pain during massages and may recruit the soothing powers of hot stones to further assuage tension. To augment massages' therapeutic effects, they administer treatments such as hydrating scrubs, body wraps, and raindrop therapy—a noninvasive bodywork technique that harnesses aromatherapy to guide energy back into balance.
As a former contestant in the Mrs. Virginia pageant, owner Lesley Cook knows the impact seasoned professionals and top-notch products have on beauty. That's why she staffs Rejuvenation Day Spa with knowledgeable specialists ready to pamper clients with treatments fueled by Dermalogica products, which are free of common irritants and ingredients that often cause breakouts, such as artificial fragrances and pizza grease. A master aesthetician performs the spa's noninvasive Hollywood face-lift—which uses gentle microcurrent pulses and vitamin-enriched gels to soften and smooth skin—and professional Glam makeup artists beautify clients for special occasions. Because Rejuvenation Day Spa is located inside the Peninsula Pain and Rehab facility, clients can further their wellness with nearby chiropractic care and acupuncture.
Dr. Corey Carwile of Tidewater Wellness Centers recognizes that not everyone is an athlete—though Dr. Carwile did play soccer in college— the licensed chiropractor takes the time to customize treatments to fit the needs and health goals of each client. The doctor alleviates headaches, muscle soreness, and body aches with traditional adjustment techniques as well as with computerized instruments from Pulstar and Impulse iQ that chart progress digitally. The office also offers massage from a licensed therapist, exercise instruction, Lipo-Light treatments, and better lifestyle guidance than a Magic 8-Ball inside a fortune cookie.
Doctor of Chiropractic Dan Toland has probably spent as much time in the gym as he has in the lab. With a bachelor’s degree in nutrition and certification as a personal trainer, he brings a unique understanding of the human body to his work. He draws on that multifaceted knowledge while treating patients at his clinic, combining a variety of treatments to create total-wellness programs that promote natural healing. Spinal adjustments and physical therapy promote a balanced, pain-free state without surgery, and dietary guidance helps patients resist sugar-filled foods and indigestible wax fruits.
