The staff at Buddha Bliss Massage sees massage therapy not as a luxury, but rather as a preventive measure against ailments. With this in mind, therapists tailor each of their services?which include Swedish and deep-tissue modalities?to individuals so they can feel considerable easing of both physical and emotional tension. To augment this process, the studio is bedecked in Buddha statues, lotus flowers, incense, and flowering plants, all of which contribute to a peaceful atmosphere.

As the name suggests, Elite Vein Specialists focuses on one goal: eliminating unwanted spider and varicose veins. Dr. Nicholas Hyde?a Yale-trained, board-certified practitioner?oversees a staff of medical experts as they help clients achieve unblemished skin. They rely on minimally invasive methods to banish unwanted veins, such as sclerotherapy injections or ambulatory phlebectomy. Most treatments are quick and show results within two to three months, ensuring guests can get back to their everyday shorts-modeling routines.
Dr. Jeffrey DeWeese wanted to be a physician when he was just 12 years old, but it wasn't until an emergency-room rotation that he decided to be a plastic surgeon. After watching a colleague reconstruct a young girl's injured face, Dr. DeWeese resolved to dedicate himself to a specialty that combines artistic vision with technical proficiency to improve patients? quality of life. Now with board certification and more than 17 years of surgical experience, he still relies on this combination of skills, spending ample time with patients beforehand and working with them to select an appropriate treatment regimen.
Surgical procedures comprise a healthy portion of the center's services, but the staff also bolsters confidence, tones and shapes silhouettes, and counteracts aging with less invasive alternatives. Custom facial treatments, for instance, incorporate everything from anti-inflammatory enzymes that conceal signs of acne to soothing masks that leave skin as hydrated as a sponge in a bucket of Gatorade. Microdermabrasion sessions and dermal fillers improve skin tone, whereas a therapeutic massage combines Swedish strokes, deep-tissue pressure, and reflexology techniques to address individual aches.
