Stress manifests physically as well as mentally. With more than 30 years of experience helping people lead healthier, more holistically balanced lives, Jeanne Long provides guidance in many forms at MindnBodies Wellness. Yoga classes, mat Pilates lessons, and personal-training sessions all bolster the muscular strength and flexibility needed to resist the chronic pains caused by poor posture or inactivity. For a less physical approach to self-improvement, the center also offers hypnosis sessions that can reinforce positive affirmations and help people overcome anxiety or quit addictive behaviors such as smoking or overeating.

Dr. Gerald Walman has been practicing eye surgery since 1979 and now clears vision with corrective procedures. Delinquent corneas cower before their reshaping LASIK lasers, which adjust the eye's internal curvature and bring the world, with the exception of fun-house mirrors, into crisp focus. They also brighten cloudy, cataract-afflicted eyes with implant surgeries and lift drooping eyelids with laser rejuvenation treatments.
In addition to studying acupuncture and oriental medicine at two American schools, Phoenix Community Acupuncture?s Mayo Mercedes Wardle traveled to China, where she attended the Heilongjiang University of Chinese Medicine. Wardle is a licensed and certified acupuncturist and a member of the People?s Organization of Community Acupuncture, a co-op that provides affordable treatment.
In keeping with the co-op?s philosophy, Wardle opened Phoenix Community Acupuncture, where she treats patients in a shared space. This traditional style of practice ensures patients can get as many acupuncture sessions as they need to improve their health or fulfill their dream of resembling a hedgehog. While she works, Wardle uses gentle Chinese and Japanese acupuncture techniques to treat pain, emotional distress, and fertility issues.
When stress builds up in the body, it can lead to insomnia, muscle spasms, and lead foot. That's why the licensed healers at Lotus relax the body and mind with techniques ranging from acupuncture and massage, to facial rejuvenation.

As an Aveda salon, Salon Embellish amasses nourishing, plant-based Aveda products to fuel each of its beauty services.

Skin soaks up nutrients during a range of facial and body treatments, including a back facial that can make it look like you don?t even have a face on your back.
