At Lose It Right, Dr. Candace Koney helps people feel healthier and more confident from the inside out. As a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians, with advanced training in integrative nutrition, Dr. Koney specializes in designing weight-loss programs based on her patients' metabolism, eating habits, and history of kale-related night terrors. She also stays up to date on the latest advancements in bariatrics by attending informational sessions, which, in the past, have included an obesity conference held at Harvard University.
To further beautify exteriors, Dr. Koney also offers aesthetic services ranging from laser hair and tattoo removal to dermal fillers and noninvasive, ultrasonic facelifts.
Align Chiropractic Day Spa blends traditional chiropractic treatments with classic spa services. Jessica Crivelli, doctor of chiropractic, welcomes customers who might be suffering from neck or back pains, headaches, or allergies, and balances their bodies via manipulations and adjustments. Meanwhile, massage therapists Cristy Fellabaum, Kimberly Graham, and Nicole Campo assuage muscle aches and stress with modalities such as hot stone, Swedish, and trigger point. These services are augmented by aesthetic treatments such as microdermabrasion, peels, and custom facials to make sure your outward appearance matches how you feel inside.
The aestheticians at Blu Salon not only gussy up guests from head to toe with a range of beautifying services but also go the extra mile to ensure that clients are as relaxed as possible. After soothing skin and remedying epidermal maladies with glycolic peels and a variety of facials, the relaxation experts complement face-refurbishing treatments with shiatsu massages that catapult sore bodies onto cloud nine—or into the neighbor’s backyard jacuzzi. While clients yield their hands and feet to the skilled manicurist Shantel, they snuggle into a tension-taming massage chair and unload their stresses. After nail techs finish dolling up digits, they also can perform a foot massage upon request. The salon’s menu of services rounds out with eyebrow, lip, and forearm waxing as well as UV-tanning sessions.

People go to spas to forget about the outside world. How does your decor help create an atmosphere where visitors can unwind?
The walls are cocoa-colored, the music is soft, and the massage table is adjustable for those who can not lay flat but would love to enjoy a massage. Close your eyes and relax: you're forgiven for falling asleep.
How did you get started in the beauty industry? Did you have an "ah-ha" moment in life?
I was in the nursing field for about 20 years. I wanted to do something more rewarding. I wanted a relaxed atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of life.
New Horizon MediSpa offers medically supervised weight-loss and aesthetic treatments at three Tampa-area locations staffed by friendly, bilingual employees. Weight-loss programs include evaluations from doctors and nurse-practitioners who prescribe pharmaceutical weight-loss medications or weight-loss injections that stimulate the thin-down process. Another avenue to a slimmer belt is the low-calorie meal-replacement program, which includes a regimen of foods that can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol. Technicians also pare down pounds with nonsurgical ultrasonic-cavitation treatments that use ultrasonic waves to break up fat cells and often lead to slimmer figures and less-taxed hula-hoops. A variety of aesthetic treatments are available as well, including Botox injections, microdermabrasion, and wrinkle fillers such as Radiesse.
