A trained and experienced staff of nine helms East Sac MedSpa, doling out skin-resurfacing facial treatments fortified by advanced technology and a dozen types of relaxing massages. As soon as clients walk through the doors, a friendly staff member will offer them a beverage?a soft drink, coffee, wine?and lead them to one of three treatment rooms. Inside, an aesthetician analyzes skin type and condition before prescribing the most appropriate procedure, such as a glycolic peel, microcurrent face-lift, or LED photofacial, to eliminate signs of aging, acne, or biting children. Alternatively, visitors can opt for a relaxing Swedish, deep-tissue, or reflexology massage performed by a certified massage therapist.
Because many of its services produce the best results with repeat treatments, East Sac MedSpa creates an incentive to return by offering visitors the chance to become spa members?a status that includes complimentary chair massages, birthday gifts, and invitations to monthly wine parties.
Angela Harris, a national board certified colon hydrotherapist and instructor with more then 15 years of experience, was first introduced to holistic therapy in college, when she worked at an integrative medical and dental clinic. From there her interest only grew, and she eventually created Wellness of Life, a wellness facility she owns and works at as a certified colon hydrotherapist. During treatments, Angela and her staff rely on a Hydro San Plus system that carries water into the body with one line, and flushes waste out into a second that works discreetly and without odor. Each one-hour session includes up to 45 minutes of treatment (the rest of the time being for preparation and for the discussion of agreeable topics such as "best rollerblade brands"). Afterward patients have reported feeling relief from bloating, headaches, fatigue, and a number of other ailments.
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.

At Vanity Weight and Beauty Institute, patients can lose weight around their middles through E-Lipo treatments, an FDA-cleared procedure that combines two kinds of electrical stimulation. To kick off treatments, cranial electrical stimulation is applied across the earlobes to bring about a state of relaxation. This treatment has also been known to help treat insomnia, depression, and anxiety. Next, bioelectrical stimulation is applied to the abdomen to burn calories and slim down and tone waists.
