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.
Skincare treatments rarely stop at the skin at Naya Fresh Body Spa Aveda. Instead the staff members strive to make every appointment an indulgent experience that leaves guests' bodies and spirits feeling rejuvenated. Botanically derived Aveda products and exfoliating Clarisonic Pro technology allow aestheticians to restore a naturally radiant glow around the cheekbones while minimizing the appearance of everything from fine lines to sun spots. Body wraps infuse the skin with nutrient-rich salves made from herbs, grapeseed oils, warm seaweed, peppermint, and other invigorating ingredients. For an immersive escape, the massage therapists can soothe tense muscles or recenter the body's chakras by using specialized combinations of therapeutic or relaxation-inducing modalities. This relaxing setting is complemented by the day spa's dec?r, which includes walls adorned with works by an assortment of featured artists as opposed to mischievous children hiding in a trench coat.
Every client enjoys the same level of comfort at Massage Simple; the company ensures that each of its earth-toned private treatment rooms is completely handicapped accessible. Clients can relax on a plush massage table crowned with soft sheets as they receive a massage designed either to simply relax or to relieve pain from physical injury or emotional stress. The staff of attentive massage therapists is versed in modalities that range from relaxing Swedish to therapeutic deep-tissue massage. Specialty massage types include hot-stone therapy for muscle tension and prenatal massage to alleviate the discomforts of pregnancy, such as carrying around dozens of extra pounds in baby-name-book weight.
Learning Thai massage techniques in Thailand seems like a solid decision. This is exactly why Suwattana Spa's therapists trained at Wat Po Buddhist Temple at the Wat Po Traditional Medical and Massage school in Bangkok. There, the team members formally studied the modality's revitalizing, relaxation-inducing properties, and they apply their knowledge when performing Thai massages for Suwattana Spa's clients. The therapists can also soothe surface tension with flowing Swedish techniques, releasing hidden knots by using deep-tissue pressure. Additionally, the spa's reflexology treatments help by restoring balance to the body's natural energies.
Each one of Alternative Wellness Center's three professionals provides a path for patients to seek wellness outside the confines of traditional Western medicine. Doctor of Chiropractic Spiros Cavelaris focuses on the skeletal health of the body, using his adjustments to treat everything from chronic pain to allergies. Mayumi Gordon, on the other hand, practices acupuncture and other methods to help with lymphatic drainage or circulatory issues. Massage therapist Lori Kibbe blends four different massage modalities into each of her sessions to help people regain range of motion lost from being glued to their desks, literally or figuratively.
The massage therapist at Healing Touch Physical Therapy sends healing echoes through achy muscle walls with their signature bodywork. They can promote deep relaxation with flowing Swedish strokes, or administer deep-tissue pressure to access lower-layer aches. While clients splendor in postmassage rapture, they may also ask about Healing Touch's many rehabilitative services, which range from acupuncture and physical therapy to nutrition management and yoga classes.
