Cheryl Kuo Seabury, a registered holistic allergist, helms Natural Allergy Relief with a dual emphasis on Eastern healing traditions and Western technology. Cheryl’s drug-free, needle-free allergy intolerance testing commences with a consultation to measure clients’ muscle energy when exposed to allergy-inspiring substances such as pollen, animal fur, and off-key sopranos. The body betrays its allergies when these substances interrupt the energy flow of the muscle and weaken it.
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.
Inside private treatment rooms marked by green-tea-colored walls and fragrant rose petals, Joyce Day Spa's massage therapists melt muscle tension with long, soothing, Swedish massage strokes.
