When children are sick, their parents will do anything to heal them. That’s why, when her teenage daughter developed fibromyalgia, Sorina Durante decided to go back to school to find ways to improve her daughter's health. She attended 10 different programs across England, Canada, and the United States to learn the latest in laser therapy and relaxation techniques, which not only helped her relieve her daughter's pains but also led her to open Energy Balance Laser Therapy & Massage. There, Durante shares with her clients her expertise in red-light therapy, therapeutic massage, and Dr. Kaufman's pain-neutralization technique, the latter of which relieves chronic and acute pain using a light touch. Durante also offers anti-aging facials that use lasers to firm and clear the skin, as well as stress-relieving alternative therapies such as reiki and CranioSacral.
Magic Touch Skin Care’s technicians rely on lasers to help solve all their clients’ aesthetic issues. They wield laser beams to remove unwanted hair, shine laser light into mouths to whiten teeth, and even use lasers to help slim and shape the body. One of the spa’s only laser-free services is a relaxing deep-tissue massage that focuses on smoothing knotted muscles and tendons.
After more than 15 years as a licensed pharmacist, Inna Lukyanovsky was fed up with prescription medication and its unexpected side effects. She now offers patients alternative treatments at her office, Real Health Solutions, where she specializes in functional medicine. The discipline hinges on rigorous lab analysis, but is geared toward establishing full-body health rather than combating specific symptoms. Lukyanovsky’s holistic treatments can detox physiques, uncover hidden allergies, and aid weight loss naturally.
A haven that fuses the tranquility of a day spa with the results-oriented procedures of a medical office, SpaMedica executes age-defying cosmetic, facial, and body treatments. A staff of seasoned medical aestheticians bolsters exteriors through services that range from Dysport injections and microdermabrasion to cellulite-banishing Endermologie treatments, many harnessing the nourishing ingredients of SkinMedica and NeoStrata skincare products. Beige walls dotted with matching candles warmly welcome patrons to the pampering sanctuary, inviting them to drink in the aroma of fresh blooms in a cozy waiting area bordered by a plush blue couch. Natural light filters through drapes onto comfy treatment beds set inside secluded rooms as peaceful and discreet as a private island ruled by sentient olive trees.
Dramatic, crystalline chandeliers dominate the interior of Valina Salon and Day Spa, a space that melds upscale aesthetics with approachable service. Beneath arrangements of inverted cones and ringed spheres, the technicians and stylists nourish and beautify bodies with Aveda botanical products. Cooling tones of white and periwinkle surround the salon section, where strands soak up deep-conditioning treatments or undergo stylistic transformations via cuts and color services.
The spa section favors textured white walls and buttery woods, which surround plush leather pedi-thrones and med-spa rooms outfitted with precision microdermabrasion equipment. Aromatherapy is incorporated into many services, from Swedish massages to spa manicures, in order to give the nostrils something to flare about. Regardless of the reason for swinging by the space, clients are encouraged to sink into plush violet benches as they await their service.
