Like its name, Chiropuncture, Inc. is a hybrid. Only the two distinct things the center combines aren't acupuncture and chiropractic—those practices often go hand-in-hand—but rather a holistic medical clinic and a traditional spa. The former is the domain of Doctor of Chiropractic Danny Lai, who has been running a chiropractic clinic since 1997, and has been a licensed acupuncturist since 2005. Dr. Lai sees each chiropractic patient personally, adapting his treatment regimen to the patient's specific maladies, be they arthritis and migraines or ADHD, anxiety, and insomnia. He speaks English, Vietnamese, and Spanish, so communicating with him is easier than talking to a fern that only knows Swahili.
The second side of the center, the spa, has some reassuring credentials of its own. It uses the popular Dermalogica line of products in its skincare services, which include a Power Regeneration treatment for mature skin and a revitalizing eye rescue that erases the dark circles that appear under eyes when you haven't had enough rest or have fallen for the old "inky kaleidoscope" trick again. The rest of the menu is a grab bag of waxing services, massages, and synthetic-lash and makeup applications.
The doctors and staff at Ultimate Weight Loss Solutions equip their clients with every tool necessary to eliminate fat from their body. They offer a variety of options from injections of concentrated vitamins and amino acids to meal replacement shakes or supplements, that help clients control their weight without resorting to invasive procedures. Mainstream products including HCG, Phentermine, and OPTIFAST shakes are available from the docs, and they also prescribe lesser known remedies such as nutritional supplements that address a variety of issues, such as a fear of carrots.
Plush white furniture pops against the spa's taupe interior where technicians and aestheticians customize treatments to individuals. They use state-of-the-art technology during a range of cosmetic treatments. Lasers resurface tired complexions, as well as dissolve acne, hair and conspicuous leg veins. In other treatment rooms, the technicians draw upon products from Botox and Latisse to beautify faces before an important award ceremony or the Trampoline Wipeout Video Awards ceremony.
Amid the relaxing scene of Channel Islands Harbor sits Bella Mar Day Spa & Salon. Here, the staff matches its location's outdoor beauty with beautifying treatments, such as permanent makeup, hairstyling, tanning, and nailcare. The staff also counts soothing massages and body wraps as specialties.
