Stamford Sports & Spine?s medical and chiropractic doctors hail from diverse backgrounds. This allows them to draw on a variety of approaches as they ease patients? pain and boost overall wellness. Doctors of Chiropractic Andrew Zomick?an expert in multidisciplinary sports medicine?and Jason V. Queiros?who has specialized training in advanced Cox flexion-distraction technique and Graston myofascial release?work alongside board-certified physiatrist Richard Koffler, MD, who complements western medical treatments with alternative approaches. Along with a staff of massage therapists, they provide clients with comprehensive chiropractic and wellness services including chiropractic care, corrective exercises, massage therapy, and nutritional counseling, which may help clients convince their toddlers to replace delicious green crayons with nutritious green vegetables.
Salon Shahin owner Shahin Farzam opened his salon with a steadfast pledge to devote time and attention to both clients and the environment. The team of hairdressers uses plant-based Phytologie products, and each stylist brings his or her own unique touch to the styling chair, delivering customized classic and cutting-edge haircuts alongside coloring services that use ammonia-free European products.
David Sturtevant, owner of Indigo Hair Spa, draws on more than two decades of experience as he leads a team of stylists in designing shiny, fashionable hairdos. The salon is adjacent to the Trump Parc residences, where stylists work at stately wooden stations with marble countertops and full-length mirrors, and abstract artwork catches eyes as they look upward toward high ceilings and modern chandeliers.
To straighten frizzy tendrils, staffers reach for smoothing products and top off locks with moisture-rich Moroccanoil; they add depth in addition to shine by coating strands in Beth Minardi and Goldwell color; and renewing scalps and strands with products by Rene Furterer. The menu of services also extends beyond haircare with facials, body treatments, waxing, and makeup application.
Owner Lisa Primps and her team of aestheticians, electrologists, and permanent-makeup artists have dedicated the past 21 years to helping clients reach a state of relaxation via treatments that fuse alternative and clinical spa methods. In doing so, they reach for Jan Marini, Dermalogica, and Bioelements skincare products during facials and peels, which can further be enhanced with microdermabrasion and ultrasonic technology. Rather than relying on hypnosis, aestheticians safely subtract unwanted hair from the follicles with traditional waxing or electrolysis, which uses disposable gold probes. Lisa applies her aesthetic knowledge and years of experience—which includes postgraduate work at the International Dermal Institute—during telangiectasia treatments, which gently remove broken capillaries and skin tags from the face and chest.
Just as The Primping Place Spa’s treatments stay ahead of the curve, so does its decor. The reception and treatment room is decorated from floor to ceiling with renewable materials, including Benjamin Moore VOC-free Natura paint, natural-bamboo blinds, and cotton drapes. A series of potted philodendrons help cleanse the air more effectively than washing its mouth out with soap. The Spa also sells Scentsy wickless candles and offers free tastings of weight-loss shakes and cleanses from Isagenix.
The Physical Medicine & Chiropractic Center’s staff aims to alleviate chronic pain and imbue bodies with long-term wellness with services that range from therapeutic massage to nutritional counseling. A trio of physicians oversees the facility’s treatments, which target pent-up tension and strain from overwork, exercise, or taxing crab-walking commutes. Each highly skilled therapist plies their healing trade with a focus on improving muscular and immune foundations rather than merely attacking the symptoms of unhealthiness or disease.
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
The bodywork professionals of Longed for Massage rank among an elite subset of individuals who have earned national certification in the field. Yet, it's not simply the work of their hands that sets them apart—it's the work of their ears. In her online bio, massage therapist Dalia touts her dedication to giving clients exactly what they need, whether that's relief from pain or escape from a tangled-up ball of yarn. She equates each massage to "an opportunity to exhale deeply, to relax completely, and to nurture a healthier lifestyle."
