At Blue Waters Holistic Center, licensed massage therapists and holistic health savants reinvigorate beleaguered bodies within private treatment rooms. Therapists incorporate nourishing clay masks and exfoliating salt scrubs into many treatments to infuse skin with the radiance of an octogenarian’s birthday cake. The spa draws upon products by Éminence, Thalgo, and d’vine due to their organic extracts, and also relies upon cutting-edge equipment such as infrared saunas and electromagnetic stimulation to alleviate muscle pain and mental stress.
The expert laser technicians at Pines Total Health Center evict unwelcome body fur with the help of noninvasive laser light pulses. Hair-removal treatments begin with an assessment, during which a depilation specialist determines which level of laser light to use based on the client's chosen target areas, the skin's condition, and its taste in pop music. Fuzz fighters looking to deforest small areas, such as upper lips (a $675 value), chins (a $799 value), or underarms (a $900 value), relax as concentrated light beams ease across target areas, safely penetrating skin to target strands at the root.
Under the supervision of a physician, the technicians at Sunrise Laser & Hormone Institute beautify bodies with a variety of noninvasive, high-tech services. They remove hair from virtually any skin type with the Alma Soprano laser, whose cooling mechanism keeps skin surfaces so comfortable that many patients compare the treatment to a hot-stone massage. To reduce sagging skin, the Alma Soprano also uses true laser technology to tighten skin in the arms, neck, face, and stomach. To reduce cellulite and wrinkles caused by attempting to spell kohlrabi, staff members call on the radio frequency and magnetic pulses of non-invasive systems. Their service menu also includes laser body-slimming treatments and bioidentical hormone-replacement therapy, along with body contouring, chemical peels, and facials.

Coming from a family tree that had been sprouting medical practitioners for three centuries, Dr. Lev Sudakov has other people’s well-being in his blood. He founded Ocean Drive Chiropractic and Wellness Center in 2008 with the goal of helping his clients "get their lives back" through chiropractic care's potential to soothe chronic pain and other maladies. Drawing inspiration from his ancestors' tradition for patient-focused care, Dr. Sudakov harnesses the newest of technologies, such as Class IV K-Laser therapy, ultrasounds, and electrical muscle stimulation to treat his clients.
Dr. Sudakov uses massage therapy to banish stress, amplify the effects of chiropractic treatments, or soothe muscles sore from giving piggyback rides to Abraham Lincoln’s statue. His bilingual staff also offers nutritional counseling, helping everyone supplement the office's wellness-boosting treatments.
Both Doctors of Chiropractic Andrew Sands and Steven Schwartz have experienced first-hand the power of chiropractic healing. Dr. Sands injured his shoulder lifting weights at the gym and was rescued from intense pain by a nearby chiropractor. Dr. Schwartz, who suffered from crippling migraine headaches while he was in high school, only found pain relief after visiting a local chiropractor—not from traditional medical therapy or medications. Their experiences made them want to enter the field themselves so they could learn how to relieve pain and perform the profession’s secret handshake.
Now, at Whole Life Health and Wellness Center, they offer a variety of techniques that help others live pain-free. They take x-rays (if medically necessary), adjust spines, and offer clients sessions in their infra-red sauna, which uses radiant heat to loosen tight muscles and increase blood circulation.
