Stressed-out hands and feet succumb to thorough pampering during a one-hour signature manicure and pedicure at GG Salon and Spa. Licensed aestheticians first scrub appendages to remove dirt, grime, and outdated wood paneling before gently massaging away tension from fingers and toes. Then, they’ll brush nails with a colorful coat of paint to update looks with jewel-like shine.

While working a cruise ship, holistic doctor and acupuncturist Ahuva Gamliel treated a passenger complaining of digestive issues. Impressed by how fast she found relief, the patient said she would send her husband so that Gamliel could treat his shoulder pain. But the woman added, "My husband is not going to tell you this, but he has erectile dysfunction and I want you to treat him for it." Noticing the man didn't mention erectile dysfunction on his intake form, Gamliel proceeded to treat him for it anyway, along with tending to his shoulder. A few days later, the woman stopped by and said, "What did you do to him? I feel like we are on our second honeymoon." Dr. Gamliel thrives on hearing such patient testimonials. Knowing since she was 5 years old that she would become a doctor, Gamliel began working as a phlebotomist in high school. But her first experiences with conventional medicine?which she recalls as "cold, callous, and impersonal"?left her disenchanted. After completing undergraduate study in psychobiology, Gamliel discovered the field of natural medicine and went on to earn a doctorate in naturopathic medicine and acupuncture from Bastyr University. Today, Gamliel pursues her vision of bringing natural healthcare to the masses through MiBaSo, an acronym for mind, body, and soul. Gamliel hopes to turn MiBaSo into a franchised, membership-based practice that increases the visibility, accessibility, and affordability of natural medicine.
Though Dr. Patricia Ares-Romero has extensive training in functional, anti-aging medicine, she still maintains a passion for holistic treatment. As the chief medical director of SmartBody MD, she combines the two disciplines to create a wellness buffet, directing a medical staff and personally helping patients design custom programs to address their concerns and work around their nighttime superhero responsibilities. These programs can incorporate medically supervised weight-loss regimens or basic nutritional guidance, but they all have the same goals: promoting whole-body well-being and developing healthful habits. To this end, knowledge is the most powerful tool that Dr. Ares-Romero and her staff share with patients, but they occasionally use lipotropic injections, dietary supplements, Botox, or bio-identical hormone treatments to aid them in their efforts.
Named after the Greek word for me, em?na spa centers on the individual through a bevy of complimentary amenities, soothing d?cor, and pampering services. The doting staff stays true to the spa's namesake, ushering clients into one of six private treatment rooms for a revitalizing microdermabrasion or detoxifying peel accented by organic products, cutting-edge technology, and aesthetic know-how. Stylists at a full-service salon and nail technicians pore over features with attentive services that elicit youthful beauty. For full-body enhancement, massage therapists unearth tension through four modalities as licensed physician's assistants target unwanted hair and skin blemishes with GentleMax laser technology.
Through the concentrated use of infrared light, LA Tans & Aesthetic Center helps clients reach their health apex through internal cleansing treatments. Take a seat in the sauna, a steam-free booth filled with infrared heaters waiting to saturate the skin in radiance as powerful as the sun's, minus the damaging ultraviolet rays and obnoxious ego. The infrared heat targets fat cells, lifts them head over heels, and shakes their pockets loose of contaminants in the form of perspiration. Infrared sessions are thought to increase circulation and stimulate tissues, which may be useful for treating arthritis or limbering up for a strenuous jazz-hands performance.
