Le Juin Day Spa & Clinic, appropriately named for the month that epitomizes summer, keeps skin radiant and clients as relaxed as if they had just spent a sunny day on the beach. Facials nourish skin and help roll back the signs of aging, such as wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, to reveal youthful glows that would make even the Gerber Baby jealous. Salt scrubs and mud wraps similarly rejuvenate skin beneath the neck, and waxing gets rid of unwanted hair, wherever it dwells. Massage therapists sap away stresses with the gentle kneading of hot-stone and aromatherapy massages, leaving guests refreshed as they head back into the world.
In the hands of Naima R. Chaves, thin acupuncture needles become incredibly powerful.

It doesn't take long to trace the pain-relief techniques of Drs. Alen and Letitia Heshmat back to their originator. That's because the two learned much of what they know from Dr. Anthony B. Morovati, who in turn studied with Dr. Janet G. Travell, the mother of myofascial therapy and the White House physician to Presidents Kennedy and Johnson. But though the Heshmats have a high regard for Travell's classic methods, they're not shy about adopting new techniques. Along with chiropractic adjustments atop low-impact Thompson treatment tables, the Heshmats offer unusual physiotherapy modalities that use electrical currents to treat sprains, arthritis, and TMJ issues and to reanimate dead fig trees. The clinic's team also features a licensed acupuncturist and a certified massage therapist.

Today, Minal applies her international education to ease her patients’ discomfort from addictions, allergies, asthma, hypertension, or their fear of embroidery.
