With 24 years of medical experience in the U.S., U.K., and India, Dr. Ram Chandra reels in his far-reaching skills to focus exclusively on beauty woes. At Anara Medspa & Cosmetic Laser Center, LLC, named best medical spa by readers of New Jersey Monthly, the consultant, board certified by the American Board of Laser Surgery, combats unwanted hair, sun damage, and spider veins with advanced laser technology, while his team of aestheticians replenishes skin with traditional facials and chemical peels.
The doctors at Associates in Plastic Surgery tuck, tighten, and enlarge various areas of the anatomy with professional precision and a kind bedside manner. They also perform less invasive treatments that ward off wrinkles and spider veins, as well as laser treatments that banish body hair, unwanted tattoos, or scars that spell out "Kick Me."
The attentive aestheticians at The Jennifer Day Spa blend Eastern and Western beauty and relaxation techniques to craft custom spa treatments. Clients can grab some "me time" and partake in one of 14 different facials, including supersonic treatments to nourish collagen and Photo Rejuvenation Time Machine treatments that give faces the famously smooth complexion of H.G. Wells. Aestheticians can denude any area with waxing services or snuff out tension through reflexology, which targets pressure points on the feet and hands to restore energy flow throughout the body. The Jennifer Day Spa also bundles its services together into multitreatment spa packages, many of which include the flowing strokes and gentle kneading of Swedish massage.
Herbal poultices, warm oils, and energy balancing aren’t the tools of a typical spa, but at Santhigram Kerala Ayurvedic Center they’re a primary defense against stress and discomfort. The doctors, one of whom has studied ayurvedic medicine since childhood, take a holistic approach to health and happiness. They use herbs relied on by the ayurvedic method for thousands of years and believe that the natural remedies without side effects can help assuage a vast range of medical and emotional concerns. Traditional treatments include pouring thin streams of warm oil onto foreheads to reduce stress, opening pores with steam baths, and producing giggles with acupressure massage.
Certified massage therapist Asad Khan is no stranger to the power of natural healing or to hard work. Before opening Massaging the Soul, Asad persevered through 720 hours of extensive training at the National Holistic Institute to earn his massage license. In addition to trekking through the demanding program, he lost 60 pounds, relying solely on natural methods to do so.
At Massaging the Soul, Asad draws from his comprehensive education and personal experience, as well as the principles of yoga, meditation, and shamanic breath work, to connect with his clients and their individual needs through the art of massage. He specializes in Swedish and deep-tissue massage, but also works in the realms of shiatsu, hot stone, and aromatherapy. In some cases, Asad incorporates sound frequencies into treatments, as they may help clear the body's energy channels and compel any dogs in the vicinity to howl in perfect harmony.
Elements Massage focuses on proving a true therapeutic experience, fending off unnecessary medical procedures with soothing techniques that trigger the body's natural healing abilities. Clients are paired with therapists who assess their specific aches and health conditions, treating each client as their most important client. They then use four levels of pressure and a blend of up to six modalities, such as deep-tissue, Swedish massage, and finger ballet, to create a customized massage. Their soothing kneads promote well-being, combat pain, loosen tight limbs, and disperse oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.
