EcuaBella Skin Care Spa owner Geovanna Ortega believes that the impact of cosmetic treatments can be more than skin-deep. “Caring for our appearance and looking our best helps us feel better about ourselves," she writes on her spa’s website.

Doctor of Chiropractic Shawn Sizemore presides over a practiced crew of licensed massage therapists that brings more than 40 years of combined know-how to Kentuckiana’s curative kneadings.

When he and his staff aren’t massaging muscles to hasten the body’s convalescence from weeklong Simon Says tournaments led by snakes, their noninvasive chiropractic treatments work to realign disks and promote overall health. With its emphasis on holistic well-being, chiropractic care can prove effective in healing such diverse ailments as headaches, hip pain, poor circulation, and sinus problems.
