Within Urban Oasis Yoga & Wellness's integrated health-care center resides a brigade of holistic healers, including naturopathic doctors, massage therapists, clinical psychologists, and 12 certified yoga instructors, who work together to help patrons reach mental and physical wellness. Designed with natural elements in mind—stone, wood, metal, fire, water, and heart—the center strives to meet each guest's physical and emotional needs with services that include acupuncture, Chinese herbology, and integrative mind-body therapy. The connection between the mind and body can be further cultivated in one of Urban Oasis' daily yoga classes, ranging from the very physically vigorous power Vinyasa style to more therapeutic traditions well-suited for beginners or practitioners with especially stiff muscles or temporarily blind third eyes.
Though their moniker implies a limited focus on only two treatments, the staff at The Lash & Wax Boutique has padded their aesthetic portfolio with far more services than just eyelash extensions and body waxing. Their classic and clarifying facials keep complexions smooth, and six assorted peels help fight signs of aging in delicious flavors such as blueberry and pomegranate. Spray tans, permanent-makeup applications, and long-lasting mink and synthetic lashes give the facility a spa-like feel. However, the real staff specialty is hair removal that reaches way beyond wax—the staff also banishes unwanted strands via threading and body sugaring, which is not only a gentler depilatory than wax, but receives a far warmer reception when accidentally dropped into a pot of coffee.
Dr. Daniel Hanson's career stemmed from a life-changing event—a propitious visit to a chiropractor. As a high-school student, he suffered from intense headaches that impeded his ability to play running back or even finesse the pirouette at the end of his touchdown dance. Medication proved ineffective, so he sought chiropractic treatment. With a few gentle spinal adjustments, Dr. Hanson was not only free of pain but in good enough condition to become the MVP of his school's football team. Nowadays, boasting his own chiropractic degree and clinic, Dr. Hanson devotes himself to the same approach that helped him in his youth, alleviating his patient's neck pain, migraines, and backaches with adjustments and decompression therapy.
Offering treatments that battle fat and cellulite with ultrasound cavitation, Hot Mama Body Sculpting takes the high-tech approach to helping customers look their best. Patients can shed between 1/4 and 1 inch during treatments, where technicians target specific areas such as the abs, stomach, or thighs. The noninvasive treatment targets fat cells, breaking them down so they can be removed via natural bodily mechanisms. Hot Mama Body Sculpting also offers a radio frequency treatment to help tighten areas of loose skin, but results vary heavily and depend on each individual and their genetics.

Hormone-replacement programs for both women and men aim to restore focus, wellness, and libido by adding hormone-replacement for testosterone injections, creams, and troches.
