Kristen, Rainee, and Karen, the team of trained professionals at Ultimate Sports Massage, know the strain sports can put on a body. They help prevent and heal sports-related injuries with their namesake specialty massage, which can be customized to address everything from lingering pain to lagging range of motion. In addition, they also prep athletes for competition with kinesio taping services, and mend game-sore bodies with the icy embrace of a cold plunge bath. The team also caters to non-athletes with relaxing traditional bodywork, soothing hot stone therapy, or Shivaki Thai massage—a blend of acupressure and yoga-like poses that helps reduce tension.
At School Street Aesthetics, cosmetic and dermatological experts help clients assume younger looks with cutting-edge aesthetic treatments. The cooling hand piece on the Cutera CoolGlide laser equipment helps minimize discomfort as it uses laser heat to remove unwanted body hair. To further beautify skin, the staff utilizes other laser technology to diminish everything from wrinkles to discoloration. Imperfections such as sun damage, broken capillaries, and age spots surrender their hold on skin when put up against the clinic?s IPL photorejuvenation treatments, which are effective on several different areas including the face, chest, neck, and hands. Laser-free services include microdermabrasion treatments, lactic peels, and facials that combat acne, excess oil, and fine lines.
Rejuvaderm’s expert staff of licensed aestheticians promotes pulchritude with a range of skin-enhancing services. The glycolic peel utilizes a safe chemical solution that, when applied, causes the face’s dead skin cells to slough away ($125). Eradicating these dead skin cells will smooth out the skin’s texture, reduce wrinkles, and improve its overall appearance, resulting in a radiating glow without the hassle of training lightning bugs to follow you around in a constant swarm. The Visia complexion analysis ($75) is a computer-calculated skin scrutinization that plots results as a visual diagram, enabling each person's pelt to compare itself to thousands of others of the same age and skin type. The data can then be used to help plan and monitor a proper anti-aging treatment, helping patients gird themselves against the ravages of Father Time and his magical face-smooshing ray gun.
Many an aesthetic problem has yielded to Norma Cataldo, the clinical director of Cosmetic Laser Solutions. She has been fixing dermal flaws with noninvasive beams of light for more than 10 years, remedying conditions such as wrinkles, sun spots, cellulite, and spider veins.
At the clinic, she is supported by Dr. Patrick Marasco, a board-certified plastic surgeon. With their combined skills, they are able to treat patients to more invasive procedures in their in-office surgical suite as well as lively harmonies over the intercom system.
Paula has been in private practice since 2000 and continues to advance her studies in Body Memory Recall after first studying the practice from its founder, Jonathan Tripodi.

Bright bottles of shampoo and conditioner line aisles in neat rows. A kaleidoscope of cards adorned with whimsical words and art waits to be taped atop a present or slipped into a mailbox. Each of CVS/pharmacy's more than 7,200 neighborhood stores brims with such everyday necessities, filling patrons' shopping baskets with products from brands such as Revlon, Duracell, Gerber, and Banana Boat. At many locations, a pharmacy dispenses prescriptions to ease patients? health complaints, and a photo department personalizes magnets and canvas prints with images of your choosing.
