  • Alki Art and Wellness Institute
    Alki Art & Wellness Institute galvanizes overall well-being through holistic techniques designed to promote relaxation, weight loss, pain management, and lifestyle change. In this one-hour session, licensed acupuncturists Traver H. Boehm or Alexandra Carmel will first talk over patients’ needs and concerns to identify the potential sources of discomfort, anxiety, or chronic trapeze-artist inversion. Acupuncture stimulates the release of pain-reducing neurotransmitters and helps balance hormone levels. The ancient Chinese treatment’s fine needles, slipped into the skin near the surface, are nearly imperceptible, but will send a polite thank-you for the invitation to enter and improve the body’s flow of vital energy, or qi.

Among various services, the duo plumps earlobes with dermal fillers, diminishes veins with sclerotherapy, and tightens skin with laser facials. Life coach Petra Beumer rounds out the spa's offerings, rooting out the emotional and mental blockages that prevent women from losing weight or achieving their goals.

  • James W. Splettstoesser, D.P.M.
    Dr. James Splettstoesser partially owes his education to his feet. Football and baseball scholarships brought him to South Dakota State University, where he completed his premed studies. As a result of his athletic activities, Dr. Splettstoesser suffered a spate of foot and ankle injuries, leading him to recognize the importance of proper podiatric care. He began studying podiatry, eventually establishing a private practice in Santa Barbara, where there was high demand due to residents having as many as two feet. For more than 36 years, Dr. Splettstoesser has privately treated podiatric patients with cosmetic and medical concerns. He addresses arch problems, analyzes painful conditions, and even helps heal the same sports injuries he used to suffer. In addition to treating everything from skin to soft-tissue conditions, Dr. Splettstoesser eradicates unsightly—and occasionally painful—toenail fungus with laser-light treatments.
