Describing itself as an "ultra-relaxing urban escape," SKN Spa radiates tranquility from its outdoor patio garden to its private treatment rooms stocked with the latest aesthetic technology. Aestheticians specialize in customized, clinical facials that harness the hydrating, age-reversing powers of firming radio frequencies, vitamin C and collagen-rich serums, or age-spot clearing IPL. Hot-stone massages and scrubs enriched with brown sugar and Dead Sea–mud help leave bodies feeling soft and stress-free, while unwanted hair can be swiftly evicted with light technology, sugaring, strongly worded letters, or traditional wax treatments.
Urgent Care Manhattan is a private practice established by board-certified emergency doctors that assesses and tends to patients experiencing minor emergencies who need immediate care seven days a week. Although no replacement exists for an emergency room in the case of a life-threatening situation, the doctors at Urgent Care Manhattan will expertly address ailments, injuries, and infections that interfere with daily life, without requiring patients to wait several weeks for an appointment or a pre-appointment assessment appointment meeting. Drs. Melrose and Shipley may write a prescription or recommend treatment to resolve medical issues or prevent future ones, or they may discern a quicker route to recovery to mitigate the impact of the situation on a patient’s lifestyle, work, or competitive whittling career.
Even though she already holds an MS and a DPT in physical therapy, Dr. Michelle Tawil, continues to learn about her craft. She instills this same passion for learning in her patients, whom she educates on methods of injury prevention while treating their pain and stress. She performs treatments that employ modern technology, such as an 830-mililiter-wavelength low-level laser. This FDA-approved machine beams cold lasers below the skin to stimulate photoreceptors and prompt the healing process, much like seeing a camera prompts children to smear their faces with pasta sauce. She also conducts treatments based in modern medicine such as trigger-point dry needling, which involves the insertion of acupuncture needles into points on tight muscles to trigger a pain- and tension-reducing twitch.
Family Foot Care NYC's podiatrists diagnose and remedy foot conditions at several offices, all located near hubs of public transportation. Patients undergo treatments for issues ranging from toenail fungus to injuries sustained while playing sports or failing to dance for cattle rustlers. The office's MRI C-scan can assess ailments by surveying one foot rather than the whole body, ensuring a comfortable experience free of claustrophobia. The podiatrists also prescribe custom orthotic shoes to keep feet comfortable and free of strain.
A group of more than 50 podiatrists across the world have one thing in common, besides podiatry: they received training from Dr. Dean Spellman, a 25-year veteran who tends to the foot-oriented needs of clients of all ages. In addition to holding positions at several hospitals and surgical centers, Dr. Spellman serves as one of two podiatrists at Family Foot Care—a well-established podiatric center with locations throughout the New York City area. And when he’s not helping patients regain the pep in their step, Spellman takes the time to work with youth soccer teams to ensure all participants can run, kick, and victoriously prance with ease.
