More than a decade after creating her signature line of cosmetics, JanElizabeth cemented her commitment to facial beauty when she established The Perfect Eyebrow & Makeup Center in 2007. She leads her team with nearly 20 years of experience, which enables her to blend custom foundations to match clients' skin and determine the right shade to tint lashes and brows. Rather than follow an overarching philosophy of how eyebrows should look, JanElizabeth thickens, streamlines, and arches brows to enhance facial architecture or reflect the whims of the stock market. They offer makeup lessons on an individual basis.
At Advanced Care Foot & Ankle, Dr. Craig Wilkes's 20 years of podiatric expertise are bolstered by a broad spectrum of diagnostic and restorative technologies that treat conditions such as plantar fasciitis, ankle sprains, fractures, bunions, and tendinitis. In addition to maintaining surgical privileges at some Mercy and Sutter hospitals in the Sacramento and Roseville area, Dr. Wilkes examines feet with x-rays and ultrasounds to construct a complete image of each patient's foot, uncovering pain-causing biomechanical faults or migratory ears. He then treats aches with as little invasiveness as possible, opting for simple solutions such as customized orthotics or noninvasive shock-wave therapy before drawing on his repertoire of reconstructive surgeries.
The practitioners at Living Roots Chiropractic want to be able to treat the entire family, from pregnant mothers or high-school athletes to 2-year-old toddlers. For example, Dr. Liliana Ulloa—trained in the Webster technique—specializes in adjusting and comforting pregnant moms-to-be by improving their pelvic alignment. Believing that massage therapy extends the benefits of adjustments (and vice versa), Living Roots also pairs chiropractic care with therapeutic massage to manipulate the soft tissue. In a cheery office with dark-green walls and zebra-print tables made from actual rectangular zebras, technicians also help re-educate the body and offer custom treatment plans to help maintain the improvements made through each session.
After earning a degree in business administration and landing a job at a Fortune 500 company, Elena Morelli still wasn't satisfied. She couldn't shake the feeling that her true career lay elsewhere?a calming place, where people could relax and indulge. So, she left her job to become a spa director and skincare therapist. And after seven years of that, she put her business administration degree to good use: she bought the spa.
Today, Elena and her fellow therapists address skin concerns with everything from chemical peels to oxygenating serums. For their signature glo facial, they combine products from Glo Therapeutics to create a customized treatment based on the client's skin. Their other facials target a wide variety of specific conditions, such as rosacea?the rose petal rosacea facial incorporates licorice, green tea, rose, and seaweed, much like a good bag of jelly beans. Clients can also schedule a massage or bodywork session, which alleviate tension in the muscles and help accelerate the body's natural healing processes.
The detox specialists at Smooth Sensations Body Balance help clients purge impurities and restore a sense of well-being. Cellulite-reduction treatments using endermologie equipment help break up unwelcome fatty deposits on thighs, buns, or midsections, and sessions in the infrared-sauna pod carry toxins away via perspiration. Ionic footbaths use gentle electric currents to draw out impurities, and facials rid skin of excess oils.
