At A Kneaded Massage, licensed massage therapist Patsy Ann Dugger eases the stresses and strains of weary muscles with her personalized care, expert execution, and hands. In the one-hour sinew-soothing session, Dugger exercises her specialty of alleviating headaches and lower-back pain, transforming taught, prickly puffer fish into sea-swimmers made of jelly. Clients may choose to manipulate muscles into good health with a pre-natal, therapeutic, relaxation, or stress-reduction massage, or choose to keep jealous skeletons from jumping ship with an orthopedic massage.
Dr. Joseph Ceravolo completed his residency in ophthalmology at the University of Buffalo before establishing his practice in Georgia to improve patients' vision with expert refractive surgeries. Dr. Ceravolo uses skills developed as a board-certified member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology to repair eyes clouded over with cataracts or distressed by glaucoma instead of trading peepers for a pair of googly eyes from an arts-and-crafts store. Brief LASIK surgeries treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and other issues with laser sessions that last minutes and require little downtime. North Columbus Eye Center also monitors the ocular condition of diabetes patients, ensuring that worsening conditions are met with appropriate care.
The licensed massage therapists at Refresh and Restore have worked their therapeutic magic on triathletes and Olympians, but their primary focus is on everyday people suffering from chronic tension. Knotted muscles slacken under flowing Swedish strokes and indulgent add-ons such as hot stones and essential oils. Guests can also solicit a massage therapist for a specialty couples massage, ideal for married couples on an anniversary or superheroes and villains seeking to let bygones by bygones.
In a relaxing environment with a private treatment room and tranquil music, beauty specialists reduce wrinkles, cellulite, and other signs of aging. Aesthetics Anti-Aging Center attacks skin dimples with a massage-based cellulite treatment that firms and softens skin. Aestheticians remove unwanted hair with swipes of warm wax. Fine lines and wrinkles dissipate without discomfort or clothespins in “no needle Botox” treatments that use soy peptides and red marine algae to firm and tighten the skin.
Albany Dermatology's board-certified dermatologists help clients maintain healthy, lustrous skin. With the nonsurgical microdermabrasion treatment, a highly controlled spray of fine crystals lifts away layers of dead skin cells to leave faces feeling smooth. Without the excess stockpiles of dull cells, the skin will show its true pigmentation, appearing more vibrant and even toned and allowing for easier application of makeup. The treatment takes around 20 minutes, making it a suitable way to refresh during lunch hours or to avoid the first two-thirds of a sitcom and skip straight to the hugging. In addition to relieving skin-cell ailments, the clinic also offers cosmetic procedures such as Botox and sclerotherapy.
