National-board-certified acupuncture physician Cari Cater and her business partner Deirdre Layne ground the Atlanta Center for Energy Medicine on a foundation of a combined 32 years of experience in alternative medicine. Each cofounder brings a different specialty to the treatment table, with Cater specializing in the meridian manipulation of acupuncture and the brain analysis of NeuroLink services and Layne concentrating on Energy Healing for those suffering from injury, depression, or espresso overdose. The company's healing quiver carries other such ammunition as natural cosmetic medicine, cranial-sacral therapy, and allergy elimination.
Though its beauty experts fine tune bodies with such services as Brazilian butt lifts and face-lifts, Body Sculpt is not a plastic surgery center. Rather than reaching for the scalpel during Brazilian butt lifts, med-spa techs rely on a combination of triangle- and lymphatic-massage. Similarly, they deploy non-invasive radio-frequency energy to smooth and tighten skin during face-lifts.
The med spa's staffers also help people lose weight through nonsurgical treatments, including ultrasonic cavitation body sculpting and weight-loss plans that introduce clients to low glycemic-index foods. Plus, they administer relaxing spa services, including facials and seaweed wraps. For folks who'd rather learn to beautify themselves, aestheticians lead classes where they teach patrons that blue eyes look best with copper eyeshadow, green eyes with purple eyeshadow, and yellow eyes with red face paint.
The experts at Fountain of Youth MD know that looking youthful also means feeling energized. In this spirit, their facials combat signs of aging, while also incorporating luxurious extras, from blackhead extractions to the eyebrow cleanup that prevents brows from growing into a sweatband. Their microdermabrasion also brightens complexions, buffing away the outer layer of dead skin with a diamond-tipped Viora Pristine apparatus. However, the face is not their exclusive focus?the team also fosters full-body wellness with acupuncture, chiropractic adjustments, and custom diet plans.
At Youphoria Massage & Wellness, a massage is more than a way to relax. Here, the massage therapist has extensive experience in alleviating chronic and acute muscular aches. She typically uses clinical evaluations to determine the massage modality that best suits each client's aches, choosing from neuromuscular, sports, and deep-tissue strokes to soothe them. She hopes that services end in "youphoria," which she defines as the feeling of health shared by your mind, body, and spirit.
For more than 20 years, Therapeutic Massage Centre’s Ted Schulte has untangled muscular striations to relieve soreness and tension. He set up his practice in a house-like structure framed with cool gray siding. Here, Ted kicks off new client relationships by learning about them via a health sheet and a consultation. These tools help him discover clients' specific ailments and goals, whether it's relief from a sports injury or escape from chronic pain, which is the next sequel to Escape from Alcatraz. Ted then customizes each session by culling from myriad techniques, including Swedish, myofascial-relief, and deep-tissue massage.
