The team at Golden Prevention doesn't need flowery language to explain what's going on inside your body?they can literally show you. For instance, their advanced scanning equipment photographs the insides of arteries so that patients can see cholesterol sticking to artery walls. Ultrasounds, meanwhile, can peer into organs for early signs of tumors, or show parents-to-be first glimpses of their little ones.
The team takes this direct approach because, for them, health screenings are about empowerment. They believe that when patients can look at a potential problem, they're more apt to take action. They back up their screenings with sound medical advice, such as making heart-healthy food choices, staying physically active, and hydrating after workouts with water instead of butter.
The massage therapists, acupuncturists, and reflexologists at A Touch for Wellness administer a roster of treatments designed to address mind, body, and soul. They offer customized facials, for example, to help reveal a softer, more youthful complexion, as well as advanced skincare therapies that yield more dramatic benefits. These include bio-electric rejuvenating treatments, which use microcurrents to tone and lift the muscles in the face, and quantum healing treatments, which use plasma and ionized oxygen to pare down acne and rosacea and increase collagen and elastin. Massage therapists, meanwhile, lift the spirits and shoo away tension with customized bodywork treatments like LaStone or deep-tissue therapy, and can also add indulgent extras like a milk and honey foot scrub, sugar foot scrub, or foot wrap made of delicious bacon.
The skincare professionals at Sugar Spot know you love your skin, so they cover it in curative botanical mud. During the Moor mud wrap, they smother the body in 100% organic peet-bog mud to remove toxins, tighten the skin, and treat back acne. The staff uses ingredients such as mineral salt to smooth rough areas and lactic acid to soften fine lines. They correct sun spots with a brightening agent, and at the end of conditioning treatments, they apply masks to restore moisture and protect skin from irritants and wild cream pies. They also slough away dead skin cells with chemical peels, which leave a clean surface for glo minerals makeup.

When Mona Borden founded Mona's Dermatherapy in 2003, she assembled a staff with diverse areas of expertise in medical-grade skin treatments and spa and beauty services. Borden learned to treat acne, acne scars, rosacea, and aging-related complaints with frozen skin stem cells at the DNA Institute in Ventura, California for cryostem cell therapy, and addresses similar skin conditions with microdermabrasion and chemical peels. As a professional permanent-makeup artist, Borden highlights natural facial features and saves Gene Simmons impersonators the trouble of reapplying grease paint before every trip to the grocery store. Mona's Dermatherapy?s medical doctors oversee Botox and Juvederm injections and aestheticians perform beauty services such as facials and waxes.
