Helmed by Bena B. Won, a registered nurse and acupuncturist who blends Eastern and Western beauty practices, Sunrise Alternative Medical Clinic and its sister practice, Sunrise MedSpa, help patrons increase health and achieve individual cosmetic goals. The clinic?s diverse service menu runs the gamut from weight-loss programs to IV nutrition, with acupuncture treatments and chinese herbal medicines available to reroute off-balance energies or treat underlying causes of nagging discomfort. On the med-spa side, laser treatments from Cutera, facials, and injectables including Botox, Radiesse, and Juv?derm keep bodies looking as youthful as a mannequin?s undying sense of wonder.
From the comforts of peaceful treatment rooms dressed in soft sea-foam-green walls, a friendly and knowledgeable therapist will guide your tootsies into a teeny tank of bio-energy-infused water or your whole person into an Alpha 33 relaxation capsule. During detoxifying foot soaks, electro-magnetic energy within the bath mingles with foreign materials in the body, drawing out toxins, chemicals, radiation, pollution, synthetics, and other yuckies via the 2,000 or so pores in the feet. The water actually changes colors (from clear to a rusty brown) as toxins are expelled, providing a painterly visual of the purification process that is taking place. The elimination of toxins can have many health benefits, including boosting the immune system, maintaining a fit metabolism, normalizing blood pressure and circulation, relieving allergies, improving sexual health, and reducing physical pain.
Therapists at Complete Trinity Colon Hydrotherapy perform medical-grade treatments to evict toxins from the body, but that doesn't mean the office has the feel of a doctor's. Instead, flickering candles and modern art complement Asian-inspired decor that stands out against walls of saturated green, purple, and blue. In the softly lit, private treatment rooms, the therapists draw upon a time-tested therapy whose origins stretch back to ancient Egypt. The theory is simple: toxins and waste become stuck in the colon, compacting and hardening the longer they stay there, so by introducing warm water to soften and evacuate the waste, the treatment can render clean bodies with a reduced likelihood of illness.
The therapists who perform the treatment can vouch for its benefits. One, Diana, spent years suffering from intestinal problems before finding relief in hydrotherapy. The other, Nataya, brings her talent for massage to the treatment for an extra dose of healing, leaving clients as relaxed as an abacus during the Y2K scare.

The service menu ranges from haircutting and straightening to waxing and nailcare, for which technicians adorn fingers and toes with more than 100 color options. There’s also a skincare offering for every inch of the body; aestheticians administer facial microdermabrasion and fat-burning body wraps among numerous other treatments that help clients feel vibrant and healthy.
We Laser Day Spa's Mediterranean-inspired environs welcome clients to experience cutting-edge laser technology treatments that range from laser hair removal to VelaShape body contouring.
