The holistic experts at Optimum Health fuse Western medicine and alternative therapies to tackle clients’ health and wellness concerns. While chiropractors identify and treat disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, physical therapists treat injuries and disabilities by crafting custom protocols composed of therapeutic exercises, hot and cold therapies, and neuromuscular re-education. Similarly, skilled massage therapists employ deep-tissue, myofascial, and trigger-point therapies to loosen and restore tense sinews. Doctors and nurse practitioners target pain at its source rather than merely covering up the symptoms with painkillers or a plastic tarp. Additionally, Optimum Health's specialists craft custom treatment plans for patients struggling with weight loss, nutrition, and stress as they target the underlying causes of health issues.

If makeup artist Mel J. had a signature look, it would be flawless skin. All her clients look airbrushed after a session in her chair. It helps that before applying any makeup to the face, she cleanses, tones skin, and hydrates skin, ensuring that she has a clean, smooth canvas to work with. Once skin is luminous, Mel smokes out eyes and paints lips with bright lipsticks or creates a more natural look.

Friendly massage therapists grant patients whole-body relaxation through Swedish and deep-tissue massages.
Even when the sun is vacationing in Australia for the winter, clients looking for a sun-kissed glow can find satisfaction in one of U-Tan Salon’s UV tanning beds.

Patrons can also enhance their newly bronzed bodies with infrared body wraps and medical weight loss consultations.
