Using a wide range of state-of-the-art pulse lasers, the clinic's talented technicians effectively wipe out unwanted hair from the body's jungly regions. Via particular wavelengths and repeated zappings, lasers are able to infiltrate the skin and eliminate fuzz, decreasing the reappearance of hair as follicles shed over a period of weeks and roots get reabsorbed into the body. Unlike argyle socks and babies in a nursery, customers aren't allowed to mix and match treatment areas; all three procedures must be applied to the same skin section.
In his study of the human body and its pressure points, Rommel Vila logged 2,200 hours of training to earn the title of registered shiatsupractor. During each shiatsu session, he applies precise pressure with his fingers and palms to specific sites on the body, releasing tension and restoring balance to the body and its musculature. Clients keep their clothes on as Rommel works, gauging tension and sensitivity in specific points and identifying larger stress patterns that have developed over time.

Shamrock Counselling founder Cristina Rennie and her team specialize in equine-facilitated counselling (EFC) a traditional psychotherapy process that incorporates the reassuring touch of horses administered in a natural environment. A registered clinical counsellor and a chairwoman on the National Association for Equine Facilitated Wellness, Cristina translates the experience she’s gained in these roles into services for patients young and old struggling with life’s myriad issues and setbacks. As patients handle, groom, and play with their horsey partners, the natural emotional mirroring between horse and person can offer support, comfort, and a deeper understanding of what makes centaurs tick. Ultimately, EFC sessions can bring about positive changes in a person’s life, including improving relationships and self-esteem or reducing anxiety.
