Sentinelle Health Group helps clients slim down and get healthy through its My Life in Balance program, which provides a thorough health assessment and weight-loss meals from Ideal Protein. During an hour-long consultation ($100), a Sentinelle nurse administers blood pressure and cholesterol tests and measures variables such as height, weight, hip circumference, and uvula length. Armed with this information, Sentinelle can recommend a personalized nutrition regimen based on individual medical needs and personal goals. The health-care professionals can also dole out a week's worth of Ideal Protein products—healthy, balanced meals designed to promote weight loss without sapping muscle mass or coal reserves by tapping into the body's stores of energy in fat cells ($125). Clients on the program may shed an average of three to seven pounds per week while gaining confidence and energy.
Both Hollywood stars and TV personalities have been on the receiving end of many of the treatments offered at 4EverYoung Anti-Aging. The med spa’s staff performs the latest in advanced beauty treatments, from nonsurgical face-lifts to facials infused with vitamin C and retinol. Whereas some services zone in on signs of aging such as wrinkles, age spots, and repetitive storytelling, some work to sculpt bodies from head to toe, toning and shaping tummies and thighs with microcurrents.
Elgin Massage Therapy Clinic, Acupuncture, Yoga and Spa is a comprehensive facility offering Registered Massage Therapy, acupuncture, spa services, and yoga classes. Today’s package starts with a promise to pamper your pores with the Primary Facial, a rejuvenating regimen of cleansing, exfoliation, and inspiring pep talks from all-natural Aveda products. Next, one of Elgin’s estheticians will apply a face mask that, when lifted, will leave your skin humming a smooth, slick jazz number and then enjoy a marvelous massage for your face, neck, and scalp. After 45 minutes of face time, a Salt Glow treatment prevents a riot from breaking out against your pampered visage by giving the rest of your frame some attention. Sea salts imbue your body with the powers of Poseidon before you are nestled within the warm waves of a cleansing shower. Finally, a full-body aromatherapy massage rounds out the hour-long treatment, filling your olfactory factory with calming scents. Same-day appointments are available.
Named Best Chiropractor by Style Weekly, Advanced Wellness Centre’s spine whisperers coax errant discs and uncooperative vertebrae back into proper alignment, fighting poor posture and pain. The first visit includes a comprehensive chiropractic, orthopedic, and neurologic exam and a set of x-rays, if necessary, to unveil misshapen spines or inter-rib bunny ears, as well as a detailed muscle analysis. Patients then return for a soothing second session that includes a 60-minute chiropractic massage, when a certified therapist will expertly remove knots from muscles like a master sailor with surprisingly kempt hands. Post-pampering, clients meet with a health care provider to discuss the previous visit’s test results and chart a course of frame-correcting care.
Randy J. Myles studied massage therapy and body kinetics in China before opening Ottawa Foot Balance, where he eases clients’ aches and pains with walk-method, deep-tissue massage and custom-made hard and soft orthotics. In each massage-therapy session, Myles’s expert feet work clients’ backs, detangling the deep muscle knots at the source of long- and short-term pain. In the orthotics lab, technicians craft nine different types of shoe inserts—including inserts appropriate for sandals—to even out unhealthy gaits, correct leg-length discrepancies, or provide cushy support for peg-legged pirates.
Customers will find a team of beauty professionals at Cosmetic Medicine Associates of Ottawa, and they’ll also meet a couple of doctors. The clinic helps patients maintain healthy, younger-looking skin by offering a spectrum of doctor-supervised procedures, from varicose-vein treatments to laser hair removal. Blotchy skin and unwanted spots and wrinkles can be addressed over a lunchtime chemical peel or a series of IPL photofacials. Injectable fillers, such as Botox and Restylane, on the other hand, tighten and smooth dynamic wrinkles—laughlines, crow’s feet, and other lines caused by daily facial expressions and texting too many emoticons.
