Doctor of Chiropractic Tracy Simon helps her patients regain their focus in life by removing painful distractions. She alleviates everything from headaches to back pain to tingling in all three feet by focusing on the root cause—an out-of-whack spine. In addition to manual adjustments, she helps her patients find relief with massages.
Eshaan Laser & Skin Care Medical Spa‘s physician-supervised staff straddles the line between science and relaxation. The aestheticians and medical professionals harness FDA-approved LightSheer and Aurora lasers to erase unwanted hairs, tattoos, and spider veins. But their science-based treatments don’t just target superficial imperfections: take VelaShape cellulite therapy, which combines mechanical massage with light and radio energies to reduce fatty deposits on the hips, thighs, and dorsal fin.
Considering their extensive medical backgrounds, it’s surprising the staff hasn’t lost sight of the nuances of relaxation. They swath their clients in warm robes, fill the spa’s air with tranquil music and soothing aromas, and offer complimentary beverages.
Massage therapist Evelyn is a muscle whisperer. She calms tense muscles using nothing more than her two trained hands. Depending on her clients’ ailments, Evelyn glides her hands along the back, pushes her thumbs into pressure points, deeply kneads dermal canvases, or gently rocks the body to sleep while dispensing a lullaby. Her sessions are customized for each individual, covering their scalp, neck, shoulder, and upper back in 15 minutes to traversing the entire body in a 90-minute period.
