The practitioners at Ojus Healthcare all hail from India, where they each earned bachelors' of ayurvedic medicine and surgery (BAMS) degrees. Ayurveda's holistic therapies date back more than 5,000 years and are drawn from ancient Indian holy texts, or Vedas.
Using diagnostic techniques developed long before blood tests or x-ray glasses, the specialists at Ojus examine their patients' eyes, tongue, skin, and pulse to determine their overall constitution during an initial consultation. If toxins seem to be weighing a person down, a five-part panchakarma detox may be recommended. This regimen includes internal and external cleansing by way of warm oil massaged into the skin, ingested, dripped up the nose, and applied over the eyes. A steam box draws impurities out through the sweat glands and soft dough is used to form oil reservoirs on especially troubled areas.
Warm and inviting sums up the ambience at Koi Day Spa, where a skilled staff of aestheticians and massage therapists unleashes a range of relaxing services on clients. Calling upon all-natural and animal-friendly products, including Éminence Organic Skin Care products from Hungary, experts rejuvenate skin with a range of facials, from the salon's signature custom treatment to an exfoliating paprika facial, chock full of the peppery spice. Aching muscles can find relief in the hands of Koi’s licensed massage therapists, who spoil backs with hot stones and long and flowing Swedish strokes. In the nail salon, organic foot scrubs and fruit-packed lotions repair dry, callused skin before technicians adorn nails with vibrant polish or tasty Bugles. Clients can sip on complimentary beverages and nibble on decadent treats throughout their visit.
Devoted to the holistic approaches of Indian Ayurvedic techniques and fostering an atmosphere where clients can relax and socialize, the beauty techs at Spa Moksha Beauty Lounge treat services with a ceremonial reverence. In an unhurried, mindful manner, the staff uses natural oils, clay, and rock crystals to accent their services and build aromatic clay snowmen. The environment promotes tranquility and wellness with exposed beams, golden drapes, Indian statuary, and dedicated spa rooms as clients soaking in the indulgent jet bath or undergoing the ancient Middle Eastern practice of threading to remove hair to enhance angles and features. The spa's list of calming and rejuvenating rituals also include massage, facials, mani-pedis, and makeup application.
At Unwanted Ink, registered nurse Debbie leads a team of adept laser technicians who help dislodge undesired ink, restoring skin canvases to smoothness. Debbie believes in patient comfort and compassion, as evidenced by her thorough study of each patron’s medical history and consultations, during which she explains the tattoo-removal procedure in great detail.
Before each treatment, Nurse Debbie sets up skin with Dr. Numb topical numbing ointment, guarding against the light sting of the lasers and the subsequent landing spacecraft. She then uses an energy-efficient Cynosure laser tailored to the process of tattoo removal, singing away most colours in the spectrum—excluding greens—to erase designs faster than the interior decorator for a supervillian's top-secret lair. A cooling machine soothes epidermis in the targeted area during each step of the removal. Following treatment, Nurse Debbie bestows all supplies necessary to facilitate skin recovery in the first three days, such as bandages, tape, and wrap, as well as necessary instructions to prevent scarring.
For close to three decades, Nima?who specializes in clinical corrective facials?and the family members that help her operate her day spa have helped guests enhance the connection between their minds and bodies. This mission was further refined in recent years, when, after working long hours in the stressful, highly competitive beauty industry, the team knew it was time for a change from invasive surgeries and harsh chemicals. So, they set their sights on holistic body-beautifying treatments. Today, their menu of restorative services includes relaxing, organic sugar-scrub treatments and infrared body wraps designed to boost the metabolism with soothing thermal energy. Certified technicians also target stubborn fat cells with lipo-laser treatments or faradic-current sessions that, like doing the Running Man, simulate the effects of physical exercise.
