At Luminique MedSpa, Dr. Michael A. Fiorillo is double-certified as a general doctor and a plastic surgeon, which gives him a multidisciplinary perspective on his clients' health and aesthetic concerns. The doctor offers plastic surgery, med-spa services, and even a series of wellness programs that help clients achieve the look they want without having to berate all their household mirrors into compliance. The spa's facials and laser skin-tightening treatments help clients feel more confident, remarks a staffer. "That's what we do. That's why we're here: to make everyone feel better about themselves." To spread the sense of well-being all over, clients can also opt for boot-camp classes and 12-week holistic programs for greater fitness and health.
To ensure that all the treatments and services offered at Beauty Victorian Secrets Day Spa are effective, rejuvenating, and worthy of her clients' time and money, Yvonne tests them all on herself first. Inside her inviting day spa, she tests out classic European facials, moisturizing freeze-dried masks, and paraffin-vitamin C treatments. She and her welcoming staff offer solutions to physical woes with their waxing services, specifically their bare-all Brazilian, which leave skin silky smooth without the cuts associated with shaving or the debilitating hand cramps of tweezing.
The trained techs of Innovative Esthetics Skin aim to relax and rejuvenate clients with advanced skin and spa services performed inside a tranquil beautification haven. Bodies can be effortlessly sculpted with the fat-emulsifying powers of a Liposonix body-contouring treatment, or the radio-frequency waves of a Thermage session. Chemical peels, stimulating massages, and vitamin-rich ingredients infiltrate seven types of facials, each tailored to meet the client's skin type and concerns. To create body trophies that shine brighter than a gifted child perched atop a unicorn, Innovative Esthetics’ staffers use Candela GentleLase lasers to remove hair, and red and blue LED light-therapy systems to help treat acne, hyperpigmentation, and rosacea.
Dr. Lance A. Johnson and his staff of massage therapists and acupuncturists combine their noninvasive skill sets to administer holistic healing without the need for drugs or surgery. He envisions the entire person being well, not just having healthy lungs or healthy knees or healthy banana-peel sensors. This approach, in Dr. Johnson's view, dodges the problem of merely making patients' symptoms go away instead of getting to the root of those symptoms' cause. His staff devotes themselves to getting to this root and, once there, correcting it with such tried and true chiropractic techniques as adjustments, massages, or physical therapy.
As a nationally certified and licensed massage therapist with a master's degree in special education, Jolie Schiering knows the power that touch can have to reduce anxiety and show support. Drawing on this experience and more than 1,000 hours of bodywork instruction, Jolie tempers troubled sinews with a variety of massage techniques. Lounging in a private room, clients prepare for Swedish, shiatsu, or hot-stone bodywork as the scented tendrils of aromatherapy oils uncurl through the air. When not calming muscles as a therapist, Jolie uses knowledge gained while acquiring a personal-training license to compete in races such as the San Diego Marathon, and obtained CPR certification from Red Cross.
The SpineSix machine at Montvale Health Associates looks a bit like a roller coaster simulator. But in fact, this reclining chair is a physical therapy tool with parts that slowly and gently move the spine in a figure eight pattern to alleviate back pain. It also serves as a prime example of how high-tech and specialized the center's treatments can be. Their arsenal of wellness equipment, which ranges from chiropractic implements like this one to surgical lasers, is an impressive one.
Of course, all that technology relies on human expertise. The staff here is a melting pot of specialists trained in a variety of disciplines including pain relief, spine care, physical therapy, and orthopedic and sports medicine. Their services branch into more and more specific subcategories under those headings.
Regardless of their ailment, every patient sees Dr. Rick Lambert to start. Based on his consultations, new clients are directed to the appropriate doctor for their symptoms, instead of having to rely on a handshake test to pick their health-care provider. Each specialist's approach is always personalized, and integrative more often than not, combining therapies such as massage and acupuncture with medical treatments.
