Founded more than a decade ago by Doctor of Chiropractic and naturopathic doctor Patrick Flynn, The Wellness Way offers a wide array of services aimed at treating the entire person and not just that person's symptoms. The practitioners at these clinics include chiropractors, rehab experts, massage therapists, and nutritionists, all united in the goal of finding the root cause of ailments and promoting overall health.
Licensed massage therapist Katrina Richardson's stress-busting hands ease tension out of achy muscles with practiced strokes. The ameliorative hour-long Ultimate Swedish massage first calms senses agitated by everyday travails and day jobs at the strobe light inspection office with hot towels and aromatherapy. Swedish massage's flowing strokes and relaxing manipulations then liquefy muscular distemper, improving circulation and range of motion, and sinking bone-movers into a blissful torpor. An extended foot massage finishes off visits, pampering piggies with a special foot crème that infuses nourishing emollients deep into pedal skin, leaving feet softer than a chinchilla slathered in butter.
Using a variety of specialized lasers and high-quality skincare products, experienced aestheticians help rid their clients of unwanted wrinkles, acne, cellulite, and hair. To that end, they offer a service menu of Botox, custom facials, and i-Lipo as well as laser hair removal and electrolysis.
The beauty experts at Asana Med Spa pamper bodies with aesthetic treatments and massage therapy. Microdermabrasions, chemical peels, and Dermapen microneedling resurface uneven facial topographies, and injections and fillers help smooth out wrinkles for months at a time. Lasers target unwanted body hair and age spots, and airbrush tans cover alabaster birthday suits in a golden glow.
