At Serenity Wellness Center, there are three pathways to an inner oasis of calm; and, though each route culminates in self-awareness and stress relief, it has its own expert guide. Massage therapists Diana Menz and Kristen Unzen take clients on a journey of flowing kneads and muscular release. They combine several modalities to create custom massages for their clients, augmenting them all with the warmth of an essential-oil-infused towel treatment.
Elsewhere in the center, licensed aesthetician Afton Land steers guests down the path toward revitalizing skincare. Her facials combat a wide range of conditions using botanical ingredients, such as vitamin C and chamomile for aging and algae and seaweed for dehydration or chapped gills. She also specializes in makeup application and speedy, comfortable waxing treatments.
Hypnotherapist Jackie Spencer takes patrons down the third and final path, which winds into the subconscious. Her confidential hypnotherapy sessions strive to reduce unwanted behaviors such as smoking or overeating. They can address specific phobias as well by encouraging clients to seek change and overcome their obstacles from within.
Board-certified by the state of California, the acupuncturists at Acu-Lounge have worked with countless patients to help address issues ranging from headaches to insomnia. After a consultation and examination, practitioners place hair-thin needles across parts of the body that correspond to different ailments or that aren't currently wearing thimbles. Once the needles have been placed, clients can relax for up to an hour in a quiet room with other patients before the needles are removed and the session draws to a close.
Since 2006, OceanFresh Seafood has sourced high-quality fish and crustaceans from the great blue yonder and brought them to the Simi Valley. The seafood emporium delivers these edibles in a few ways: party platters teeming with snow crab, prawns, and poached salmon; catering services for clambakes and oyster bars; and DIY cooking kits and classes. With raw materials in hand, customers can prepare sushi under the guidance of an expert maki roller or test out their culinary skills at home with maine lobster tails and Maryland-style crab cakes.
Inspired to study chiropractic after a chiropractor successfully treated a sports injury he sustained in high school, Dr. Peter Janousek helps his patients stay pain free and healthy with the same range of treatments that kept him on the playing field in his youth. Traditional spinal adjustments are the crux of his treatment repertoire, which he administers after rooting out the musculoskeletal causes of pain during chiropractic and orthopedic exams.
