Everyday Miracles’ cofounders, Ta’mus and Susan, tailor each of their holistic healing sessions in order to “plant dreams and grow miracles”—that is, mend the body’s smaller issues in order to achieve whole-body health. Services such as cranial-sacral therapy incorporate the simple techniques of light massage and energy-flow analysis to ease dysfunctions that can manifest as headaches, chronic fatigue, or TMJ. A selection of massage treatments calls upon Swedish, deep-tissue, or Thai techniques, each of which can be fueled by signature scents that Ta’mus personally creates by grinding whole botanicals and liquefying scratch 'n' sniff stickers. Qigong sessions invoke the 800-year-old remedies of Chinese monks to calm bodies with a blend of movement, breathing techniques, and meditation.
Stanford University-trained certified physician's assistant Nellie Blunt, medical director Dr. Anshu Gupta, and their team at 424 Cosmetic Dermatology effortlessly restore skin to its most rejuvenated state. Along with her expert staff, Nellie uses injectables and light therapy to whip complexions into shape and fight approaching signs of aging. Microdermabrasion and peels also soften fine lines and cultivate evenness, sloughing away the dead skin and brown autumn leaves that often accumulate on the skin. Below the neck, the staff is just as busy, using sclerotherapy to exile spider veins, cryotherapy to remove skin tags, and B12 injections to kindle an energy boost.
