Muscles talk to each other, you just can't hear them—but Jason Wildermuth can. Drawing on his background as a licensed massage therapist, he holds a megaphone up to the whispers of achy muscles, then tailors his bodywork techniques to each client's individual needs. Jason can promote relaxation with Swedish strokes, or access lower-layer aches with firmer deep-tissue pressure. Guests may also sample the facility's other healing services, which range from physical therapy to soothing facial and foot treatments.
At Red Hots Salon, a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, guests can choose a la carte hair, nail, massage, and skincare services from a full menu of body-cosseting options. The experienced pulchritude professionals ensure that patrons unwind as soon as they walk through the door, plying them with complimentary beverages or, for spa services, glasses of champagne escorted by sweet strawberries plucked from Strawberry Shortcake?s hat.
Nimble fingers massage detoxifying conditioning treatments into scalps, drizzle chocolate treatments onto parched hands, and knead away tension from corporeal landscapes. Red Hots is so focused on pampering guests that it strives to get immediate customer feedback with an online survey that queries, ?Did you find your service to be relaxing and enjoyable?? and ?Should we play more pan-flute music??
Founded 20 years ago by Dr. David Perlow, Any Lab Test Now boasts more than 100 centers nationwide where technicians administer thousands of standard lab tests priced to increase access and affordability for uninsured or low-income patients. Each location doubles as a draw center, where technicians acquire the specimens necessary for popular services—including glucose readings, HIV screenings, and urinalysis—before sending them to an offsite laboratory for testing.
Any Lab Test Now respects the need for discretion, so each HIPAA-compliant test can be taken anonymously in certain instances. Results are often available within 24–48 hours, and can be mailed, faxed, picked up, or transmitted telepathically for ultimate confidentiality. Though the team doesn’t divulge any medical advice, results can also be passed on to primary-care physicians for further analysis.
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.
After a back injury, it was chiropractic care that changed Dustin Bledsoe's life?and not just in the physical sense. His recovery inspired him to obtain a degree in chiropractic medicine, and today he goes by Dr. Bledsoe at Pathway Wellness Chiropractic Clinic, where he helps others recover from their own injuries.
But Dr. Bledsoe isn't alone in this task. The clinic is also home to Dr. Jeffrey Farrah, who draws on his knowledge to devise treatment plans that incorporate traditional chiropractic care, massage, acupuncture, and a special technique known as Gastron therapy. This last technique uses precise instruments to help the chiropractor detect scar tissue, adhesions, and medieval armor that might be restricting the body's movement.
Licensed massage therapists Sandra Hunter, Peggy Elliott, and Caroline Colletti specialize in such modalities as craniosacral therapy, post mastectomy lymph therapy, and infant massage. Their medical massages treat anything from chronic pain to injuries caused by car crashes and thumb-wrestling accidents. The clinic has an onsite FAR infrared sauna that works to detoxify and improve circulation.
