Those arriving to Enigma Medi Spa for the first time might be struck by the chic, contemporary decor, which mixes modern chandeliers and sleek furniture with Asian-inspired accents. But the spa doesn?t just look pretty??behind each beautiful treatment room door lies the latest aesthetic technology, administered under the watch of medical director Dr. Oleg Volchonok, a double board-certified specialist in gastroenterology and internal medicine.
Using a computerized skin-analysis system, Dr. Volchonok?s staff can customize a skincare regimen unique to each client?s needs and goals and steer them toward treatments that might include IPL photorejuvenation, microcurrent facelifts, or a 24K gold facial. Beyond customized skincare treatments and slim-down plans, the mei spa also offers laser body contouring and a relaxing salt therapy room, which has LED lights surrounded by pure Himalayan rock salts that emanate 84 minerals and negative ions. This helps to increase the natural healing process in addition to improving sleep, calming allergies, and helping asthma suffers breathe easier.
Enigma Medi Spa has also been helping clients acquire smooth, hair-free physiques for six years. Under doctor supervision, The GentleMax Laser treatment is the newest and most powerful way to remove hair. The system contains two lasers: The Alexandrite or Alex, for lighter skin and The Yag for dark skin. The med spa is home to five FDA-approved laser hair-removal devices that speedily target and remove unwanted hair with the precision of a Whac-A-Mole champion.
For Body Beautiful's team of cosmetic experts, it?s not enough to simply treat patients? skin, veins, or cellulite. The med-spa?s staff is also focused on helping patients understand the issues they?re facing and how they can be treated most effectively, which is why all patients begin their relationship with the spa with a personal consultation. Only then does Body Beautiful draw on its arsenal of high-tech services, including treatments that include diode-laser hair removal, tattoo removal, and fractional skin resurfacing and rejuvenation designed to minimize skin irritation. The team also uses lasers?along with peels, ultrasound facials, microdermabrasion, and other approaches?to combat acne and spider veins, and its laser toenail fungus removal helps prepare feet for warm-weather footwear. To complement its other technological techniques, Body Beautiful also offers body-contouring wraps, which rely on a mixture of radio frequency, infrared light, fillers and Botox, and teeth whitening.
Once the province of only luxury spas and often dismissed as simply an indulgence, massage has since joined the ranks of legitimate, proven pain-management techniques—and Dee Wartenberg thinks that it’s about time. This is because as a licensed massage therapist, she has seen the benefits that medical massage can have on those suffering from pain and injury firsthand. Less a luxury and more an integral means of coping with pain, medical massage entails ultraspecific, results-oriented attention to injured areas of the body, as well as the supporting and opposing tissues. This focused system of bodywork, often accompanied by a physician’s prescription and a Get Well balloon, has been proven to relieve any number of symptoms, from back pain to decreased joint flexibility to stress.
Dee Wartenberg is a steadfast believer in the healing powers of medical massage, and she utilizes her skills and passion for healing during each session. She offers medical, sports, and trigger-point massage to alleviate clients’ suffering, but she doesn’t stop there. As a reiki master, Dee is also qualified to perform reiki treatments, and for those who are simply looking for a blissful, spa-like escape from general stress and tension, she happily doles out uplifting Swedish massages. Free-parking is available to all customers of Medical Therapeutic Massage.
Burnt-red walls and cozy furniture create a homey, welcoming experience for guests at Lena Salon & Spa, ideal for relaxing before a pampering beauty treatment. Salon and spa services run the gamut from haircuts to eyelash extensions and nailcare. Airbrush tanning, massages, and bridal packages are also available.
The therapists at East-West Therapeutic Massage give massages in the same way that they teach their students: by combining creativity with science. Each therapist wields the classroom know-how to deliver a muscle-melting shiatsu, sports, or lomilomi massage. But to them, it’s more important to remain flexible in their methods, responding to the needs of the client rather than rigidly adhering to textbook diagrams. To this end, one of the primary tenants of East-West is listening to the client. Though guests can choose from a menu of massage modalities, such as Hawaiian and craniosacral massage, they can also start sessions with a description of their discomfort or desires, such as reducing stress or eliminating their fear of tripwire. From these descriptions, the therapist crafts a tailored set of motions and strokes, paying close attention to the body as the massage guides clients toward relief.
Massage therapists, fitness instructors, and nutritional consultants join forces at Pocono Body Wellness Studio to promote holistic health in all its forms. Therapists de-stress musculature with acupuncture and numerous massage modalities, and ear-candling sessions can help relieve tension in sinuses, which cannot be massaged. Elsewhere in the studio, resident aestheticians further enhance bodies with facials, waxes, and mani-pedis. The staff makes frequent contributions to charities, donating 5% of the proceeds of every massage package they book to a children's hospital in Philadelphia.
