Much like a cruise ship leaving port, a professional massage unties knots, sails away from reality, stops in ports of pleasure, and returns with a suitcase full of relaxation and seashell butter sculptures. Pure NV's 60-minute relaxation massage melts your muscles with gentle kneading that relieves knots, soothes aches, and enhances your ability to perform moderate to impressive tasks throughout your strenuous day. Pure NV’s friendly and experienced staff includes massage therapist Vicki, who uses her strong palms and wonderknuckles to relieve tense muscles and improve circulation. Each massage is tailored to an individual’s specific needs and problem areas, so the same therapist who can turn bricks back into clay won't liquefy a patient who warrants a pie-dough approach.
HealthQuest's nonsurgical treatments have raised many eyebrows in the sports world, especially around the locker rooms at Ford Field. The center often finds itself the temporary home to some of Detroit's gridiron greats, who take advantage of the staff's non-invasive chiropractic treatments—which combine the power of pulsed laser light and traditional chiropractic care to alleviate knots and aches—to stay in Sunday shape. Non-football clients also find relief, consulting with HealthQuest's doctors on treatments to increase blood flow, decrease inflammation, and promote soft tissue healing.

Even before he became a chiropractor, Dr. Robin Roberts understood the power of a good adjustment. He played on a minor league baseball team, and before and after every game, he observed the team chiropractor keeping players healthy enough to hustle for ground balls, swat dingers, and run away from broken windows. It was enough that, once he hung up his glove, he decided to become a chiropractor himself.
Since 2003, Dr. Roberts has been administering his hands-on chiropractic techniques to professional baseball players, hockey players, and patients suffering from aches and chronic pain. Eschewing every ounce of conventional medication and invasive techniques, his non-invasive methods trigger the body's own self-healing resources to correct ailments ranging from chronic pain to migraines.
Krave Salon's style swamis tend to hair, skin, and nails with a bevy of beautifying services. Permanent makeup artist and salon co-owner Lisa Brown nestles drops of natural vegetable pigment between individual lashes to define eyelids with soft, natural-looking color and authoritative dictionary entries during a cosmetic-tattoo procedure. Alternatively, the Five Berry Pigment Control peel can help reduce discoloration with a cocktail of all-natural extracts, such as cranberry, raspberry, and blueberry, whereas the Vitamin A Professional Power peel helps encourage collagen production and cell renewal. Finally, a bikini wax gets pelvises ready for swimsuit season, much the way a watch wax prepares wrists to don revealing string Rolexes.
