At Optimum Health Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic Michelle Santoro and her team of staff members view health through a holistic lens. Most sessions with the doctor begin with a debriefing of health history and a neurological and orthopedic exam. From there, Dr. Santoro may treat pain with a chiropractic adjustment via the hands-on “cracking” technique or with a more technological method using infrared lasers or magic. In addition, resident acupuncturist Dr. Tong uses hair-thin needles to open energy channels and relieve a range of symptoms, incorporating cupping and massage as he goes. Clinic staffers also prescribe specific herbal supplements to help heal from the inside out, and will even walk patients through diet and nutrition specifics in pursuit of weight loss or overall wellness.
Aside from boosting wellness, Optimum Health Chiropractic also stimulates relaxation with six types of massage—from Swedish to hot stone—and detoxifying footbaths. They swaddle clients in slimming creams to tighten skin, and use chocolate-scented body scrubs to smooth dry patches and attract feral sundaes during ice-cream-hunting season. They even maintain a menu of traditional spa services, including waxing, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and facials augmented by optional pumpkin peels.
More than 25 years ago, Kundan Sabarwal opened the doors of a modest 400-square-foot skincare spa in New Delhi, working diligently to gently and efficiently eradicate her clients' unwanted body hair through a blend of ancient techniques and modern indulgences. With a bit of hard-earned success, Ziba Beauty hopped the pond, eventually expanding to 17 locations in two U.S. states. Each studio embraces American style while retaining its overseas roots, amplifying faces and bodies with traditional Indian cosmetic adornment and hair removal. By rolling small loops of cotton thread over brows and other facial areas, threading specialists can remove pesky fuzz without harming the skin or skipping over fine hairs. For more sizeable zones, Sumita Wax, which was developed in India exclusively for Ziba Beauty, quickly sends errant hairs packing on the face and body. Artistic hands ink bodies with the ornate semipermanent designs of traditional mehndi, or cloak clients in sparkle with intricate art in a choice of 32 glitter mehndi colors and shimmering crystals, readying skin for special events better than a full-body tuxedo tattoo.

Just as the hairstylists of AQUA Salon & Spa—tucked inside the Powerhouse Gym Sports Complex—aim to create luscious locks and the aestheticians foster flawless skin, Jill Adams focuses her energy on accomplishing one beauty goal: contouring her clients' bodies. To do this, Jill relies on Formostar Encore infrared body wraps, designed to increase metabolisms while simultaneously firming the skin and smoothing the appearance of cellulite.
As the only service she provides, Jill expertly walks clients through the body-wrap process, which includes bandaging the torso and each limb with treatment pads that target specific areas of fat, such as the outer thighs and the neon-green floaties that have formed around the upper arms. An infrared light is then emitted through the pads, which helps to ease body aches and rev up collagen factories. To enhance the experience, Jill encourages guests to enjoy a book, listen to an iPod, or read a tablet during the treatment, and offers to fill the private room with optional aromatherapy scents from dōTERRA essential oils.
At Funxional Chiropractic, the experienced, bilingual staff treats an array of conditions using traditional chiropractic methods. They employ Activator, Flexion-Distraction, and Thompson techniques to alleviate pain, physiotherapy exercises to rehabilitate injured body parts and fins, and nutrition exams and blood work to monitor wellness. To keep clients in fine fettle, the staff spearheads a handful of holistic programs. During nutrition consultations, a doctor pinpoints areas of impending dietary disaster, and suggests a list of supplements based on each client’s specific metabolic needs. Comprehensive wellness exams, on the other hand, go for the whole health hog. A medico analyzes blood work and performs a meticulous exam to eradicate the roots of anything from fatigue and headaches to restless leg and lily liver.
