The team at A Better You takes a holistic approach to wellness, offering services designed to detoxify the body and promote overall health. Their technicians are certified in the Madame Et Monsieur Electro-Slim system, an electrotherapy technology that may help reduce fat and strengthen muscles with pulses from strategically placed electrodes. Staffers aim to rid tissues of impurities with soothing infrared-sauna sessions or ionic foot baths, and counteract everyday stress with relaxing massages.
The center also seeks to enhance well-being with natural products such as certified-pure-therapeutic-grade essential oils and vitamin-rich or pure herbal nutritional supplements. Visitors are greeted by soft music, the fragrances of aromatherapy, and soft armchairs next to antique-style end tables that are ideal for writing Dear John letters to newly roomy pants.
Massage therapist Svetlana Braunt draws upon her international education, received in the U.S. and the Ukraine, as well as her continued training, to relax and heal her guests with massage, body wraps, and oils made from distilled smooth jazz. Her background is in energy work, and her top priority is balancing the mind, body, and spirit in a way that facilitates healing. Svetlana's next objective is to continue her studies in holistic and Eastern medicines, as well as in structural integration.
During treatments, Svetlana often nourishes skin with botanical ingredients. She coats bodies in moor mud?a paste rich in minerals, vitamins, amino acids, and humic acids?and also wraps figures in French seaweed, a substance replete with minerals and enzymes. Svetlana's massage services take place at the spa, but she's also mobile; appointments can be made for therapy at home or at special events.
Acupuncturist Siamak Shirazi has a secret that he’s dying to share—acupuncture isn’t just for aches and pains anymore. Guided by his learned hands, the therapeutic needles of the ancient Chinese treatment can also erase the fine lines associated with aging, boosting circulation and collagen production and leaving faces looking younger. So, when he’s not busy sharing his cosmetic acupuncture skills on television, he's treating clients at 2bwell Clinic, a holistic healing studio dedicated to easing clients’ needs through preventive care, community wellness. Practitioners including massage therapists, naturopathic physicians, dieticians, and a breath-work specialist work together to devise integrative healthcare solutions and bust vitamin smuggling rings.

Colette Chavez Walker listens with her hands. As they glide over sore bodies during deep-tissue and Thai massages, her hands intuitively follow and react to shifting and fading tensions. To teach her hands this ability, she studied with massage masters from various parts of the world. To learn Hawaiian-style mana lomi massage, she traveled to the islands and apprenticed with a native Hawaiian practitioner. To learn orthopedic massages, she studied under the tutelage of James Waslaski, the founder of the technique.
Though her hands never seem to get tired or run out of claps, Colette occasionally transfers them from physical work to pure energy manipulation. During reiki sessions, she applies her more than 10 years of experience to balance the body's chakras and promote healing.
