At South Ontario Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic Rod Melvin believes that chiropractic is about more than simple pain relief. It's about bringing the body back into a state of balance to prevent illness and pain to begin with. Relying on low-risk, noninvasive techniques instead of drugs and surgery, he gently corrects misaligned vertebrae. These adjustments help vertebrae function better, relieve tension, and may help many other functions of the body.
At Vendesi Beauty & Wellness Center, individually tailored facials cater to a wide range of skin concerns, treating faces in need of firming, hydrating, exfoliating, and more. The expansive skincare menu also includes microdermabrasion, back exfoliating treatments, and vitamin-C-infused exfoliation. But this beauty and wellness center offers much more than just skincare: other services include massages, body wraps, and spray tanning, to name a few.
The aestheticians at On Cloud Nine Day Spa revitalize complexions by integrating spa niceties, such as paraffin wax dips, into advanced treatments. Pevonia emulsions cultivate glowing skin with natural ingredients, the effectiveness bolstered with infusions of collagen and oxygen or gentle exfoliation with a mechanized diamond-studded wand. In the face of stubborn scars and stretch marks, expert hands can reach for products designed for pre- and post-op skincare from the Medicalia line. On Cloud Nine Day Spa's own line of aromatherapeutic essential oils deepen relaxation during all eight styles of massages, all of which incorporate hot stones. Bodies stay smooth and lithe with help from an FDA-cleared mechanical massager, strips of wax, and the example set by a Hatha yoga instructor's snake hand puppet.
Massage therapist Laurelle relies on the certified skills of her nimble fingers to gift backs with deeply relaxing treatments. During the hot-stone therapy massage, Laurelle heats smooth stones and places them at energy points along the body, warming muscles and boosting blood circulation. Laurelle cossets guests for 40 minutes, 60 minutes, or 90 minutes, allowing them to match their massage to how long they are comfortable leaving vintage Lego sets alone in the car. Purple accents speck the cool color scheme of the salon, where diaphanous plum curtains complement sage-green walls.
At Ayurveda & Massage Therapy Clinic, certified massage therapist Danae Delaney employs Ayurvedic techniques to correct bodily and mental imbalances. For instance, during a typical treatment, Delaney might mollycoddle the body with a detoxifying and moisturizing Abhyanga massage before calming the mind with the takradhara technique of pouring buttermilk on the forehead. For more extensive balancing or in case they want to save the buttermilk for their cereal, patients can schedule a three-, five-, or seven-day cleanse that features a steady dose of herbs, yoga, and body treatments.
Dr. Angel DeMola uses noninvasive methods to guide patients toward their cosmetic goals at Paradise Laser Institute. Both bolster their international medical education with training in naturopathic and cosmetic techniques. They use lasers not only to remove unwanted hair, but also to restore hair to thinning areas by stimulating the cellular metabolism of the scalp's skin and increasing blood flow to the follicle, just as gardeners increase plant growth by pouring blood over the roots. Other treatments work from the inside out, such as an array of injectables designed to smooth and tone faces from beneath the skin.
