As a licensed acupuncturist and trained massage therapist with more than 15 years of experience, Dr. Craig Thomas of Tallahassee Chinese Medicine has the background needed to heal ailing patients at the root of their symptoms. His acupuncture sessions—which involve placing fine-tipped needles into specific pressure points along the body—are said to relieve arthritis, headaches, allergies, and dozens of other maladies. Thomas considers shiatsu massage an important part of the holistic-healing process too, since it helps to increase circulation, reduce stress, and loosen joints. The center also doles out herbal medicines free from heavy metals, pesticides, and swear words on the bottles.
AXIOS Salt Spa + Juice Bar refreshes its clients using two main techniques: satisfying beverages and complete climate-controlled dryness. The dual approach is key to the spa's mission to improve health on the inside as well as the outside. Dry-salt rooms that mimic the healing microclimates of salt caves are equipped with halogenerators, which disperse microscopic clouds of pure sodium chloride into the air at regular intervals. Cleansed of all water and harmful minerals, the salt penetrates into lower respiratory systems, where it cleanses and acts as an expectorant.
AXIOS also offers massage therapy and organic skincare treatments to ease tension and enhance beauty. The spa's other cornerstone is its juice bar, which delivers vital nutrients through 25 organic juice blends and 12 fresh-fruit smoothies.
Radiant Skin Solutions' experienced body beautifiers eliminate unwanted hair from skin surfaces with specialized laser systems. Laser hair removal offers patients a long-lasting clearing option, helping to eschew the irritation of razor burn, the tediousness of waxing, and the expense of maintaining a fleet of mini bulldozers. The FDA–cleared Radiant hair-reduction technology saturates skin with a filtered, pulsed light beam, targeting follicles with a focused energy that destroys hair-growth cells while leaving other tissues unharmed. Before beginning their laser sessions, clients meet with an experienced Radiant staff member for an informative consultation, friendly game of freeze tag, and complimentary imaging analysis, where a series of photos charts one's skin texture and potential problematic areas.
