Essentials Massage & Facials' Spa licensed professionals relax weary bodies with a collection of therapeutic services. Soothing massages employ a collection of kneads, strokes, and manipulations to reduce tension and disentangle body knots, with luxurious add-ons such as paraffin treatments and aromatherapy. The skin-savvy techs also rid frames of unwanted stubble with waxing services, smooth out wrinkles with chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and soften countenances with professional skincare products during facials.

Clients don't need an appointment at Granite Diagnostic Laboratories. At 10 locations across the west coast of Florida, lab technicians administer dozens of in-house and reference tests for walk-in visitors. From a single drawing of blood, they can screen for diseases or check levels of cholesterol, growth hormones, and most everything else that powers the body's internal combustion engines. The technicians work thoroughly and efficiently, and hand over results within a few days.
The doctors at Envizion Medical help their patients uncover optimal health and balance in their lives through hormone-replacement therapy, weight-loss programs, and food-allergy testing. The therapies and methods tend to focus on hormone optimization, which doctors believe keeps people feeling more youthful and energetic than a kitten rollerblading through catnip.
Drawing on more than a decade of professional experience as a massage therapist and aesthetician, Chantal Withers oversees a service menu that includes both skin and body treatments.

Facials employ a variety of skin-improving remedies, including a blend of collagen and vitamin C that firms and brightens aging skin. Chantal also performs body scrubs and waxing services, as well as regular or Shellac nail treatments.
Jay J. Garcia and his cadre of bariatric physicians customize safe weight-loss programs for patients yearning to shed pounds. The two-week plan opens with a consultation, during which time a specialist charts each client’s starting measurements, completes an EKG and blood work, maps out a nutritional plan, and prescribes medication and supplements. Clients also receive an injection of B vitamins and FDA-approved medicine to balance hormones and jump-start the metabolism without crashing cymbals near the stomach. After the initial visit, patients return three more times for quick injections and a follow-up to ensure the program is functioning smoothly. The clinic also arms clients with a 30-day supply of multivitamins and a stress-support supplement.
