After a back injury downed him on the varsity football field of his high school, David Sinawi sought medical treatment. Thanks to the handiwork of a skilled chiropractor, he soon recovered and discovered a passion that would shape his professional life.
Now the chiropractor behind Complete Spine & Joint Center, he offers his patients the same quality treatment he received, employing diversified chiropractic techniques, massage therapy, and spinal rehabilitation. He also uses lifestyle-advice sessions and nutritional counseling to help patients identify and eliminate unhealthy habits, such as riding on the butler's shoulders to work instead of walking.
Royal Oak Tea Spa adds extra luxury to the concept of a tea party, pairing complimentary cups of tea with an array of beauty treatments. Their exfoliation treatments, for example, minimize the appearance of fine lines and pores. Facials balance skin’s natural oil content and deeply clean rather than just removing surface dirt with a feather duster. To beautify extremities, nail technicians can paint nails with vibrant lacquers or hydrate hands with conditioning treatments.
At locations in Franklin, West Bloomfield, Royal Oak, and most recently Birmingham, experienced aestheticians dissolve stress with soothing massages, facials, and nail treatments that utilize fruit-infused scrubs or oils from Sacred Earth Botanicals. Inside private treatment rooms, techs evict toxins with Dead Sea mud or seaweed body wraps and knead knots into untied shoelaces with aromatherapy massages or therapeutic stretches. Treatments, including a slate of mani-pedis, come in various packages for half-day pampering sessions, with tasty add-ons such as a spa lunch or bubbly sips of champagne. Alternatively, the spa's concierge services take the pampering out of the spa and into the shells of stressed turtles or homes of customers, who may also request assistance with errands, laundry, and grocery pick-up.
Dr. Jeff Allyn has been a practicing chiropractic physician for more than two decades. In 1994, he opened the doors to his own practice at Berkley Chiropractic Clinic. Here, Dr. Allyn and his staff manage issues with muscles and bones in an honest, ethical fashion, zeroing in on each individual's unique needs. The process typically starts with a free consultation, which enables Dr. Allyn to pinpoint problem areas and determine whether or not a patient is actually just two pranksters stacked on each other's shoulders. From there, the doc and his staff decide if chiropractic manipulative care is an option, and if other forms of therapy, such as massage, could also be helpful.
At Ferndale Relaxation Spa, massage therapists employ a holistic approach twice over, soothing the entire body with techniques from around the world. Beyond the traditional Western modalities, such as Swedish and hot stone, the indian head and neck massage calls upon ayurvedic-healing principles, and Chinese reflexology methods aim to boost the immune system during foot massages. Amid a bubbling fountain and soft music, the spa promotes relaxation with optional experiences such as rose petals scattered in candlelight or side-by-side massages for couples or presidential running mates.
