At Tustin Bodywork Bistro, founder Dr. Laila Nayab-Murshidi, and her staff help alleviate pain and improve overall wellness through chiropractic adjustments and other all-natural treatments. These treatments work to correct the underlying causes of pain, instead of simply masking the symptoms with prescription drugs or a number of strategically placed smiley face stickers. A major part of her mission as a chiropractor is to educate patients about their treatment options, a component she often finds lacking in the health-care industry. To this end, Dr. Nayab-Murshidi often delivers free health and wellness workshops to the greater community both inside her clinic and at local schools, churches, and area businesses.
Dr. Quoc Tran helms a staff of specialized nurses to help him achieve what he calls his purpose in life: to “improve and change his patient’s physical and emotional lives.” He achieves this by helping clients lose weight through medication and injections, and also by helping them look younger with Botox, Juvéderm, and Dysport injections. Staff aestheticians also play a part in Dr. Tran’s philosophy, removing dirt and oil from pores with facials and clearing away dead skin cells with microdermabrasion and chemical peels. The clinic also provides laser hair removal to help clients get rid of unwanted hair and toupees.
Vinita Vineet, owner of Vinita's Beauty & Threading Studio, hails from India, bringing Eastern depilation techniques to the West Coast. She and her staff of trained threading experts whisk hair from men's and women's faces, creating perfectly shaped brows, silky upper lips, and cheeks that are smoother than a newly polished bowling lane. For body parts south of the face, they rely on waxing treatments to remove unwanted hair. Artistically applied henna tattoos adorn arms, legs, and décolletage; henna is also used to tint hair.
The aestheticians at Asava Medi Spa cleanse complexions with 12 kinds of facials, but their services don’t just run skin-deep. In addition to fighting signs of aging and acne with Yon-Ka skincare products, technicians administer Botox injections and laser hair removal and work to slim curves with VelaShape treatments that don’t require incisions or knowledge of how a carburetor works.
Waxing expert Ashly Clinger frees men and women from unwanted stubble in her homey studio, Face & Body Skin Care Retreat. She is such a pro at this form of depilation that she has recorded an instructional DVD to teach aspiring waxers the techniques and theory of her craft. Her website educates clients with tips such as avoiding caffeine for 12 hours before the appointment or how to write a nice breakup letter to the unwanted body hair. As a licensed aesthetician, Ashly also performed facials, body scrubs, and ear candling.
