Mind Body Harmonics founder Dami Egbeyemi emphasizes that while the company’s brain wave optimization does not “diagnose or treat medical problems,” it provides clients “with an outlet to relieve stress and relax.” Featured in O, the Oprah Magazine and People, this treatment places sensors on the client’s head to read activity in six different parts of the brain. A report points out areas of imbalance, and these off-kilter brain waves are used to generate a sound that clients listen to with headphones. The goal is that by mirroring the brain so it can see and hear itself, a state of harmony is achieved. These treatments are offset by the facilities other services and products such as Life Wave patches that simulate the benefits of acupuncture without the use of needles, and Kangen Water systems that improve the alkalinity of tap water.
Seeing Josh Apperley tired is a rare sight. Since graduating from massage therapy school, he has completely revamped his current studio and plans to expand the one-man practice into a full clinic where he will helm a team of multi-skilled therapists. The Regina community has taken notice of Mr. Apperley's efforts; he recently won "Best Massage Therapist" in Prairie Dog Magazine's 2013 "Best of Regina" competition.
He brings this same positive energy and enthusiasm to each of his massages. Concerned with more than just muscles, Josh has learned enough about the body's mechanics to understand when the muscles, bones, and joints are out of balance. He then customizes strokes to help adjust, readjust, and balance the muscle/bone synergy that exists in all humans and the most realistic dolls.
Per their studio’s name, the massage therapists at Cathedral Sports Massage treat the body as a temple. Their attention to patients’ comfort is evident through six different modalities, whether they’re soothing pregnancy’s aches with prenatal massage or melting away stress with hot stones.
Located at the Sandman Hotel, Suites & Spa, Damara Day Spa sends waves of relaxation into bodies with calming treatments and beautifying skin services. A range of spa pedicures and facials purify skin with warm soaks and lava stones in addition to exfoliations and medical aesthetics performed at their partner spa, Bell Medical Aesthetics. Skilled hands extract tendrils and tease out toxins with a variety of men's waxes and back-cleansing treatments. And a plethora of therapeutic foot, scalp, and hand massages helps to ease muscles after all-night cartwheel competitions.
Working as a baker, Colette Barnabe had an epiphany: she would rather take calories off people than put them on. In the interim between careers, the certified EMS technician learned about electric muscle stimulation—the same technology NASA uses to keep its astronauts in shape during long durations in zero gravity and prolonged exposure to moon pies. Her technology, which follows the same principles as NASA’s, sends gentle, painless pulses of electricity to the muscles. This contracts the muscles, simulating the type of exercise that tones muscles, burns calories, and breaks apart stubborn cellulite tissue.
Colette augments the results of EMS sessions with diathermy, which delivers heat to deep tissue. This heat raises the metabolism of areas that typically harbor stores of fat cells. She also encourages clients to use her whole-body vibration platforms, which contract muscles 30 to 50 times per minute, further toning them and boosting bone density.
Brightly toned walls create an aura of warmth inside Brown Sugar Tanning & Day Spa, mimicking the UV rays contained inside the salon’s seven UV tanning beds. The salon’s certified tan technicians guide clients through the UV and sunless bronzing options available, as well the supply of accelerating lotions. Inside the private treatment rooms, guests build up natural tans in one of the salon’s seven UV beds, available in stand-up, lay-down, or jumping-jack varieties. For a more timely tan, technicians custom apply a Norvell spray that creates a streak-free bronze for up to seven days. Before clients make their way out through the lobby, they can indulge in one of the many spa treatments—such as massages, manicures, and skincare—that show off newly golden skin tones.
