Each succession of kneads is designed to alleviate stress, muscles soreness, and various medical conditions, such as high blood pressure.

Dr. Patrick S. Carney, who boasts more than 20 years of skin-care expertise, leads an experienced staff of skinologists into the war for attention-grabbing radiance. Each visit to the pristine, welcoming clinic begins with a thorough assessment of the customer’s skin and complexion, allowing for the proper selection of light, laser, and voodoo-spell therapies to be customized for an effective treatment. A 30-minute IPL photofacial uses intense broad-spectrum pulsed light to treat skin conditions such as sun damage, broken capillaries, paintball indentations, irregular pigmentation, clingy barnacles, fine lines, superglued Halloween masks, and rosacea. By treating the areas of the skin with excess pigmentation, photofacial treatments result in healthy, luminous, younger-looking skin that mesmerizes passersby. For maximum results, IPL photofacial treatments are recommended in a series of three to six treatments. While side effects such as swelling, alteration in pigment, and blisters may occur, Skin Speaks takes all possible safety precautions to prevent them.

Informed by traditional Chinese medical practices, Chinese Acupuncture & Herb Center’s skilled acupuncturist bridges broken synapses between the mind and body with holistic treatments that prove a valuable counterpoint to Western medicine. Each treatment begins with an assessment that takes into account prior health conditions before embarking on a healing journey designed to improve the body's holistic well-being. Along the way, sterile single-use acupuncture needles help to boost the immune system and free up inner energy; cupping stimulates blood flow by creating a warming, vacuum-like sensation across the skin. To further encourage holistic healing, many of the center’s treatments incorporate natural herbs and remedies, such as herbal massage oils which help deepen the effects of a relaxing massage.
