At American Wellness & Rehab Clinic, Doctor of Chiropractic Solomon Gustafson is joined by a team composed of a nurse practitioner, an ultrasound tech, and a massage therapist. This well-rounded crew is able to offer an integrated array of services that help put bodies of all ages back in balance. Chiropractic adjustments aid in the recovery of injuries and chronic conditions, whereas massage sessions erase tension better than a bottle of lavender correction fluid.
CityWeekly gave Kudzu Body Clinic props, naming it the Best Massage on the Go in Utah for 2013. The accolades were no doubt earned from the variety of therapeutic and specialty massages offered. Massage therapists use Swedish, hot-stone, and trigger-point techniques to alleviate everything from dull aches to chronic pain. Specialty treatments focus on individuals suffering from sciatica, whiplash, and headaches.
At the Institute of Facial and Cosmetic Surgery, cosmetic surgeons Brent D. Kennedy and Steven Constantine use their expertise to bolster patients' appearances. Dr. Kennedy, who holds both a medical and a dental degree, established the institute in 1988 to he train doctors from across the country in a continuing-education fellowship program. He also shares his extensive knowledge as a clinical associate professor of aesthetic maxillofacial surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, and has seen his surgical techniques published in several medical journals and textbooks. His colleague, Dr. Constantine, combines his experience in surgical procedures with a deep-seated desire to get to know his patients and witness the positive mental transformation that follows the physical one.
In the 7,000-square-foot state-licensed surgical facility—which offers overnight stays and 24-hour nursing care—the duo performs a variety of procedures, ranging from face-lifts and tummy tucks to laser skin resurfacing. A master aesthetician is on hand to care for skin with anti-aging GlyMed Plus and Obagi products.
After studying at the University of Utah, Emory University, and Vanderbilt, Dr. Justin Johnsen returned to his native Utah to raise his family and begin to realize his dream of helping those suffering from ocular and facial trauma. At Utah Eye & Facial Plastic Surgery, he and his trained aesthetician administer multiple types of surgical and nonsurgical treatments for the face, ranging from four types of cosmetic injectables—including Botox, Juvéderm, Radiesse, and Restylane—to the removal of painful eyelid tumors.
The doctor is happy to consult with any prospective client beforehand—and for free—in order to review all options and develop a rapport that can later be applied to a comedy bit.
For evidence of the keen style sense of Taylor D'Shaw Salon’s beauticians, take a look at the staff members' hairdos. The cropped or flowing coifs include luscious waves of blond, bouncy auburn curls, and trendy side-swept bangs. The staff's styling prowess infuses the homey salon and spills into a vast array of services, including flattering cuts and professional coloring treatments that use Pureology products. At the manicure station, nail techs sculpt and adorn nails with glimmering gel polish. The whole beautifying production takes place in a cozy space where bright-yellow walls, rustic wood vanities, and a lack of live amateur musicians playing '80s glam-band hits on the kazoo create a relaxed, intimate atmosphere.
