Board-certified acupuncturist Ed Hubbell aims to alleviate the effects of chronic pain and illness with Chinese herbal remedies and acupuncture services. Using 3,000-year-old treatments ranging from Qigong healing to cranial-sacral massage, Hubbel helps clients reclaim balance in their lives. Similarly, his stress-reduction workshops teach clients how to unwind after long days of work, school, or stunt-double training. And though most of his treatments offer holistic benefits, a select number of services also help to relieve specific symptoms of illnesses such as insomnia and TMJ.
At Simple Bliss Day Spa, a highly trained staff stands at the ready to administer a range of personalized treatments in a newly renovated spa space. Six different facials tackle six distinct skin issues, with concoctions ranging from exfoliating blends to formulas designed specifically for men or cleverly disguised yetis. The spa's advanced skin treatments also leverage state-of-the-art approaches. Microdermabrasions, chemical peels, salt scrubs, and body wraps all help refresh and rejuvenate the skin.
When Barbara L. Baaden underwent what doctors said was life-altering eye surgery, she drew upon her skills in massage therapy, hypnotherapy, homeopathy, and aromatherapy to ease her discomfort. Now, when she's not applying her medical massage skills to fellow eye surgery patients, she uses those techniques to help heal clients at Body by Baaden. The licensed massage therapist incorporates homeopathic and essential oils into seven varieties of massage, including shiatsu and myofascial styles. She also enriches bodies with skin-soothing aromatherapies and her natural Flawless Facial, whose botanical oils help prevent wrinkles and brighten complexions more effectively than attaching a strobe light to your forehead. Barbara also ministers to inner wellness, stimulating bodies' healing responses during homeopathic sessions and plumbing the subconscious during hypnotherapy sessions that rid patients of addictions and phobias.
The tension tamers at Marotta Health and Wellness let physiques unfurl and minds unwind with therapeutic services tailored to each client's individual needs. During the one-hour massage, a licensed therapist coaxes out stored-up stress and melts tension lodged in bodily crannies with gliding strokes and precise pressure, allowing the body to experience a floating sensation akin to a blimp ride in outer space. Afterward, a detoxifying ionic footbath disencumbers leg-hands by siphoning off unhealthy toxins, impurities, and heavy metals, freeing up feet to frolic and tap out polka beats.
Only five Sculptor machines reside in the United States and one of them can be found in Amra Domazet's health studio, Sculptor Body Contouring. Amra, a certified laser technician, travelled to Arizona to be trained on this unique device that noninvasively slims physiques and tightens skin, allowing her clients to beautify their bodies without going under the knife.
Also in Arma's high-tech tool kit are lasers for fighting spider veins, body hair, and unwanted tats, as well IPL facial units and a miniature Hubble telescope.
The specialists at On The Right Path host a range of therapeutic services to promote wellness and balance in body and mind. The facility’s sand-hued walls simulate the beach’s calming energy as a holistic healer leads patrons to a personal massage table, where shoulders revel in rolling hand movements and arms joyfully flap in inflatable water wings. Like film noir, the one-hour massage or reiki treatment relieves tension by slowly untangling complex knots, and draws inspiration from German expressionist Bob Saget.
