Feather hair extensions. Brazilian blowouts. Schwarzkopf and Redken color. The stylists at Teaser’s Hair Salon each bring their own specialties to the salon floor to create an extensive list of services that focus on making hair look better, feel healthier, and fill out hats without having to stuff with Kleenex. The salon also has an aesthetician and a holistic massage practitioner on staff to perform facials, waxing, and massages that untie muscular knots left by young tendons still unsure how to tie their shoes.
Like a restaurant uniting different cuisines to find the best blends of flavor, Renew Integrative Health Center combines Western and alternative medicines to develop treatment plans for each patient that can meet all of their needs. Patients can choose the type of doctor that most closely reflects their own thoughts about health, and that doctor then collaborates with the rest of the Renew team. Together, they aim to help patients achieve and sustain optimal health, applying the diverse skill set they collectively possess: naturopathy, chiropractic care, acupuncture, physical therapy, counseling, massage, and more. Lifestyle change receives particular emphasis, taking the form of weight loss, anti-aging treatments, or getting patients to stop eating their stress balls.

Dr. Brian Stenzler, owner of D.R.E.A.M. Wellness, is a one-man who’s-who of chiropractic. As a student, he took a trip to Panama where he spent some time straightening spines pro-bono before performing an adjustment for then first-lady, Dora Boyd Perez Balladares. He flew back to The States where he finished his Doctorate of Chiropractic in 1998, just before graduating Summa cum Laude with a Masters in sports health science in 1999. Two years later, the Red Cross recognized him for his work at ground zero during 9/11, and in 2003 he was named New York Chiropractor of the Year by The New York Chiropractic Council.
And those were just the first five years of his career.
Since then, he’s shepherded a veritable hit parade of professional athletes, celebrities, and politicians back to health, including the likes of Junior Seau, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Orin Hatch. After a cross-continental move to California—where he promptly became the president of the California chiropractic Association—Dr. Stenzler opened the west-coast office of his practice, D.R.E.A.M. Wellness.
The core philosophy of D.R.E.A.M. Wellness is that true wellbeing is much more than simply being free of pain, disease, and sickness. The staff aims to harmonize physical, mental, social, and spiritual wellbeing by emphasizing five particular areas of health, which is where the name D.R.E.A.M. comes in: diet, relaxation, exercise, adjustment, and mental wellbeing. These five facets of wellness have inform the growing number of treatments they offer at their clinic, which includes chiropractic work, massages, nutrition programs, pilates, and more.
As a sports-massage specialist, Tricia can often be found working on athletes at community events such as Race for the Cure and the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. She's just about the perfect candidate for giving back to these kinds of causes, as her specialties include not just sports massage, but geriatric and oncology massage as well. She performs all of these modalities and more at Celestial Craniosacral, her one-woman operation where she administers everything from Swedish and Shiatsu treatments to hot-stone therapy and acupressure. In addition to massage, she supports overall wellness with reiki, energy work, and chicken-soup scented aromatherapy.
