John Montalto, a 26-year veteran of the hair-styling industry, delivers a variety of luxurious treatments for men and women at his Western Springs salon and spa. Deft hands transform female tresses with custom cuts and colors and sweep strands into updos for charity balls or cubes. Manly follicles flee from faces after hot shaves, beard trims, and mustache modifications. A mirrored wall reflects aestheticians as they cosset nail beds during mani-pedi, and potted foliage shades clientele during facials, waxing, and various modalities of massage.
Elements Therapeutic Massage fends off unnecessary medical procedures with soothing techniques that trigger the body's natural healing abilities. Clients are paired with therapists who assess their specific aches and health conditions. They then use four levels of pressure and a blend of up to six modalities, such as deep-tissue, Swedish massage, and trigger-point, to create a customized massage. Their soothing kneads combat pain, loosen tight limbs, and disperse oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.
Some people have always known their calling, but many find it only when they?re searching for something else. Dr. Victor Manzo found his passion for chiropractic medicine while pursuing his business degree. After a family chiropractor relieved uncomfortable symptoms that were interfering with his life, he was inspired to take a new path and share that same healing with others.
Today, Dr. Manzo serves as Dimensional Family Wellness's owner, chiropractic doctor, and wellness coach. He frees clients of pain and health concerns through a range of services, including chiropractic care, corrective exercises, lifestyle and nutrition advice, and massage therapy. Dr. Manzo?s approach seeks to remove impediments to natural healing instead of relying on outside treatments such as medication and scaring problems away. His methods have helped patients with maladies ranging from allergies and bodily pain to osteoporosis and headaches.
Trained hands are pretty good at soothing overworked muscles, but at Dolce Vita Day Spa, they have some extra help. During Vichy hydrotherapy treatments, high-pressure streams of water invigorate the entire body as guests relax on a table, a more comfortable alternative to napping at a picnic on a cloudy day. It's typically the finishing touch on spa days that might include more-traditional massages, facials with Arbonne products, and special treatments for the hands and feet. Plant-inspired art, an indoor "garden" area, and an easy-to-reach location in downtown LaGrange make a trip to Dolce Vita relaxing from arrival on.
Unless you're one of the lucky humans who can age backwards, your body needs regular maintenance if it's to last. That's why the skilled aestheticians at Dolce Vita Day Spa keep the mind and body tuned up with rejuvenating and beautifying body treatments. Clients can opt for voluminous lash extensions or retreat to a private room for Swedish or hot-stone bodywork from licensed massage therapist Justyna Gomula.
