From physical ailments to mental stresses, many problems respond to a good massage. That's the guiding philosophy at Superior Therapeutic Solutions, where therapists use Swedish, deep tissue, and reflexology modalities?sometimes supplemented with hot stones or aromatic essential oil?to strategically soothe and heal.

The Cleansing Center is a holistic haven where disease prevention and healthy lifestyle habits are the main focus. Before beginning any treatment, the health providers employ an informative new-patient assessment to help them understand the patient’s medical history and current health issues as well as their emotional and spiritual state. From there, they are able to construct a customized plan that focuses on treating the root of the problem rather than the symptoms. Colon hydrotherapy harnesses the toxin-flushing power of the LIBBE Open System, which sends a gentle stream of water into the lower intestine to purge it of impurities. The Cleansing Center also provides nutrition and exercise counseling, spiritual guidance, and lab work when necessary.
Inspired by the tenets of traditional Chinese medicine, Acupuncture Center’s David and Kim Yoo strive to create balance and harmony in the body through non-Western medical techniques. Their hair-thin acupuncture needles unblock energy flow along the body's 71 meridians, and cupping sessions draw stagnant qi out from its nap on the soul’s couch. The doctors Yoo also employ moxibustion, a 3,000-year old practice of applying a stick of burning mugwort over an acupuncture point to stimulate and strengthen the blood and life energy. Acupuncture Center works in conjunction with primary-care physicians, often receiving referrals from MDs and augmenting traditional treatments of maladies such as lower back pain, arthritis, migraines, and sleep disorders.
City Acupuncture’s master herbalists and acupuncturists—all of whom hold master's degrees in traditional Oriental medicine—calmly administer a range of holistic treatments.
During acupuncture sessions, the specialists invite clients to unwind on heated massage tables before lying down on fresh white linen treatment beds. With great care, the acupuncturists then begin to insert disposable needles along the limbs and torso in an effort to alleviate issues such as addictive behaviors, chronic pain, and needle-related phobias. The center’s staff also promotes whole-body well-being by administering nutritional and herbal consultations in addition to full-line of massage services.
The optometrists at Eye Contact Vision Center's two locations examine eyes for prescription changes and diseases such as glaucoma and cataracts during comprehensive exams, treat poor eye health, and permanently correct vision with lasers. Customers can select frames by brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Gucci, and Ray-Ban, and if the glasses don't look as good as they did in the store or don't conceal a secret identity well enough, Eye Contact Vision Center will buy them back for up to one year.

Alternatively, massages provide gentle pressure that relaxes the tense tissues and caramel centers under the skin.
