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.
A student of martial arts, Drew Nystrom discovered his calling through the study of traditional Oriental medicine. At Precision Point Wellness, Drew diagnoses the root of pain and discomfort through a variety of techniques and methodologies. Acupuncture and cupping therapy work simultaneously to stimulate the immune system by activating specific zones of the body, while traditional gua sha massage relieves tension and invigorates tired blood. Drew can also foster patients in the study of qi gong, the restorative study of breathing techniques, and guided meditation.
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.
Janice Hofstee at Skin Sensations helps free skin from signs of aging, acne, and uneven color with an array of peels and skincare treatments.
