Amore Day Spa’s owner Kelly Kim spent years honing her craft by working as a licensed aesthetician and product specialist before opening her own day spa in 2011. Born and raised in South Korea, she spent the first eight years of her career traveling between her home country and Seattle, making her particularly well-suited to address the needs of other busy women who often forget to make time for themselves. Together with her staff, Kelly doles out relaxation in the form of everything from tailored hot-stone massages to whole-body steam treatments that leave skin feeling soft and polished with help from salt or sugar scrubs. She can also cut down morning makeup routines with permanent eyeliner or employ full-body waxing services to trim seconds off long commutes by playground slide.
An athletic man in his early 20s lies down on his brawny back. He carefully grips the cool bar above him and begins to bench-press more than 300 pounds. On his last repetition, he feels one of his shoulders buckle and give out. For weeks, he is incapable of reaching upper cupboards or high-fiving the neighborhood chimpanzee. His parents urge him to visit a chiropractor, and when he yields to their suggestion, his shoulder's strength and mobility rapidly improves. Inspired by his speedy recovery, the young man pursues a career in chiropractic.Today, the word "doctor" precedes the name of Mark Banasiak, the owner of at Wine Country Chiropractic. Since starting his own practice in 1995, Dr. Banasiak has treated countless patients, from youngsters to an 83-year-old woman with spinal stenosis and severely hunched posture who was eventually able to stand upright. He treats each patient inside private treatment rooms that exude coziness. Armed with a spinal-decompression certification, Dr. Banasiak specializes in using a spinal-decompression table to relieve pressure points between discs, helping mend ailments often thought to require invasive surgery. Patients who arrive early for their appointment may lounge in the waiting area or relax atop the water-therapy table.
Beauty surfaces every day at Temecula Med Spa without its technicians or aestheticians ever picking up a scalpel. Instead, their noninvasive treatments harness the power of lasers, intense pulsed light, or cosmetic injectables to erase blemishes, wrinkles, and unwanted hair. Temecula Med Spa also offers facials and peels, which rely upon Image skincare products to cleanse, tone, and beautify complexions.
When he suffered two herniated discs some years ago, Dr. Andrew Lowe turned to a chiropractor to get back on his feet. The experience was proof of what a good chiropractor can do—it also inspired Andrew to join the field himself. Now at the helm of a practice that bears his name, Dr. Lowe remedies ailments that range from back and neck pain to allergies and high blood pressure. To do so, he and his staff focus on three major aspects of health: structural, emotional, and nutritional. They use this formula to not only identify points of concern, but to correct problems at their root.
After a family trip to Hawaii inspired Spa Escape's signature Marine Mud detoxifying mask, the spa's owners worked to build a menu of services that similarly combined relaxation with a results-driven approach. Their trained staff of therapists and aestheticians helped a great deal in this mission, calling upon years of experience to develop a range of treatments to beautify and relax the body. Though the Marine Mud mask still serves as an ever-popular anchor, the spa's menu now encompasses exfoliating facials, waxing treatments, and massage therapy. Should stresses prove insusceptible to the therapists' targeted strokes and whispered rumors that your shoulders are haunted, the spa's packages grant up to a half-day of relaxation with multiple treatments.

Kevin Brooks had never seen anything like this before: the woman lying on his massage table had not been able to bend over without experiencing excruciating pain in her abdomen for about a year. With only 15 minutes left in the session, Kevin's trained hands dug in to her tense psoas muscles, which span the lower spine to the top of the thigh. Following this application of deep-tissue technique, the client bent to put on her shoes and gasped. The pain was gone. This is why Kevin maintains that massage therapists shouldn't sell a type of massage; they should sell relief from pain.
Twelve years ago, he founded Simply Kneaded to provide his clientele with relief from aches and tension. His massage therapists use any technique at their disposal, be it deep-tissue work, acupressure, or lullabies sung in solfège, to disperse pain or immobility. Today, his business has expanded to multiple locations, and he carefully screens each of his therapists according to his own rigorous standards and in accordance with the frequent political coups of the American Massage Therapy Association.
