Multiple levels of tanning beds gradually bronze skins inside private rooms at Tanners Cove. Tanning accelerators available at reception can hasten the arrival of sun-kissed hues, and spray-tan booths spritz on golden color without exposure to UV light or glares from jealous wall sconces.
Doctors carefully listen to patients as they assess their beauty and weight-loss goals inside Monterey Bay Weight Loss and Medical, an office that originally went by the stage name MediZone. Initial weight-loss consultations allow the doctor and medical staff to offer each patient a custom action plan, which will include weekly one-on-one visits with vitamin B injections and a pocket-sized weight-loss coach for at-home inspiration. The friendly staff also doles out bio-identical hormone replacements as well as injections of Botox to help turn aging body clocks back a few years.
During every appointment at The Center of Integrative Chinese Medicine, the staff members take the same first step: they listen. Listening to their patients' needs and goals informs their treatment procedures, as it clues them in on the underlying causes of unrest that their patients feel. After that, they use acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and ancient Chinese medicine to treat a range of conditions, including hypertension, anxiety, bronchitis, tennis elbow, and dizziness.
The team at Monterey Day Spa, offers clients the spa services they seek: nailcare, hot-stone massages, gentlemen’s facials, and organic sugar scrubs. The staff provides services with natural, opulent products that incorporate soothing aromatherapy oils and creams where possible.
Dr. Kusum Atraya leads the Gilroy Family Dental Center's staff as they keep mouths healthy and smiles beaming with family-focused dental care and cosmetic procedures. Standard dental services restore and maintain mouths, and beautifying services such as whitening keep chompers radiant enough to light homes during blackouts. Dr. Atraya attends dental courses throughout the year to keep up with the latest trends, and talks with each patient about proper oral hygiene during visits. During most treatments, patients can listen to music or nap while they dream about a possible career as a toothpaste spokesperson. Gilroy Family Dental Center also offers Invisalign and Lumineers.
Open 24 hours, this 33,000-square-foot facility has something for everyone, boasting a multiarea layout that includes a hardwood-floored studio for its more than 25 group fitness classes, a separate area just for spinning, and a punching-bag-lined zone devoted to mixed martial arts and free weights. While tots play in the Kidz Club area, members can work out on the state-of-the-art machines, swim laps in the 60-foot pool, challenge friends to racquetball, or hone Richard Nixon impersonations in the sauna.
In treating patients, Doctor of Chiropractic Buford McCharen doesn’t have to deliver the cracking thrusts of traditional back and neck adjustments. Instead, he treats spinal subluxations, nerve interference, and pain syndrome with gentle instrument-assisted adjustments. These adjustments are designed to gently tap the vertebrae to restore normal motion and take pressure off of sensitive nerve tissue so the body can do its job of healing. Cold-laser therapy further circumvents invasive treatments by targeting inflammation with laser light that bypasses the skin completely.
