Doctors of Chiropractic—and twin brothers—Daniel and David Clements share more in common than their parents, looks, and sentence halves; the two doctors also share the same philosophy on holistic health. Inspiration set in while attending Augsburg College on hockey scholarships, where the Canadian natives noticed the chiropractic treatments they were receiving helped keep them healthy and injury free. Experiencing this proactive approach to wellness motivated the duo to forego their premed path and pursue a chiropractic degree from Southern California University of Health Sciences instead.
At Twins Chiropractic, the brothers work with clients to find the most beneficial treatment plan, whether through regular adjustments, massages, or both. They also pack their website with informational resources to help patients make informed decisions or wile away the hours on a deserted beach.
Beyond Beauty Lashes occupies an unconventional space inside a poker supply warehouse, and according to a feature that OC Weekly writer Michelle Woo penned in praise of the salon, a visit to one of their three private treatment rooms can yield big results. That's because the spot's extensionist, who has been in the business for 10 years, meticulously elongates eyelashes using synthetic extensions with the option to upgrade to silk or mink options harvested humanely from live animals, just like the cookies harvested from cookie monsters. Clients can choose from various lengths, thicknesses, and colors to achieve their desired look. The extensions typically last 60–100 days, shedding gradually with natural lashes.
Dr. Khanh Tran and his staff operate under a simple premise: the structure of the body determines its function. Dr. Tran keeps this in mind as he runs his hands along his clients’ spines, looking for the telltale subluxations and slipped disks that may signal any number of physical issues. Though these issues run the gamut from chronic discomfort to a freely rotating head, the chiropractic staff consistently relies on an approach that triggers the body’s recuperative abilities with natural, drug-free therapies. The multidisciplined team works as a single unit, combining acupuncture, massage therapy, and nutritional counseling in a program anchored by the doctor’s chiropractic adjustments.
OM Day Spa's quintet of therapists performs a plethora of pampering massage, skincare, and waxing services. A few therapists take care of the skincare side of the spa. They execute everything from manual dermabrasion to facials that employ ironizing technology and magnets to erase blemishes. Others handle the massage side, having mastered modalities such as Swedish, warm bamboo, and prenatal. The team also provides body slimming and detoxing wraps, as well as cosmetic enhancements such as eyelash extensions.
A massage is much like a mimosa. Vitamin C–packed orange juice parallels the healing qualities, while the champagne mirrors the pampering, relaxation-inducing aspect of bodywork. To exemplify this dichotomy, Mimosa Massage offers a diverse menu of massage techniques to ease tension and promote inner tranquility. Licensed massage therapists can utilize light strokes or more moderate pressure with hot wax and oil; whatever the chosen modality, sessions are always tailored to the needs of the individual.
Certified massage therapist Jenny Aguilar turns muscle frowns upside down with her therapeutic bodywork. Out of her private studio, Jenny offers a diverse array of massage modalities, ranging from flowing Swedish strokes and hot-stone therapy to firm deep-tissue techniques that ease lower-layer aches. Clients may also request specialty hydrotherapy to improve circulation in struggling limbs and range of motion in malfunctioning umbrellas.
