The three sisters who run Be Well, A Creating Wellness Center built their unique wellness program on a basic philosophy: that health?or the lack thereof?is the direct result of the nurturing or neglect of three categories?the physical, the biochemical, and the psychological. Thus, using technological evaluations and the guidance of knowledgeable practitioners, staffers assess clients? health based on the strength of these three categories in their own lifestyle. They refer to the result of this evaluation as a wellness quotient?a numerical number that symbolizes the client?s position on a wellness continuum.
However, it is after this thorough assessment that the real work begins. The practitioners then curate a customized wellness program for each client based on their assessment, drawing from the center?s wide range of services. Clients may see a chiropractor for a misaligned back; they may receive nutritional counseling to help them improve their diet; they may partake in yoga, indulge in a thermal massage, enroll in fitness classes, and balance their chi through acupuncture?all in order to nurture their specific wellness deficits. And throughout the entire process, wellness coaches provide clients with support, encouragement, and constant reassessments to help them view their own progress as they return to vigor and full-body health.
A passion for holistic healing led Evelyn Gosch to diversify her realm of expertise as a regular medical practitioner with traditional Chinese techniques. The owner of Unique Therapies encourages her staff to stay current on the latest natural-therapy and medical trends through ongoing training and education. The center specializes in pain- and injury-management techniques that rely on natural remedies including acupuncture, cupping, and glaring at pain until it scurries away. A particularly unusual treatment, myomassology, combines techniques from muscle- and bodywork, movement therapy, and energy balancing to promote pain relief and an overall feeling of well-being. Unique Therapies also offers Phaser EPL laser hair removal and houses a certified educational institute, which offers classes and workshops to the public.
Helmed by Doctors of Chiropractic Gracinda Ramos and Adam Pye, a staff consisting of massage therapists, a reflexology therapist, and a reiki practitioner work in unison to holistically bolster overall well-being. Using state-of-the-art equipment such as a thermal scanner to accurately elucidate spinal health and expose vertebrae-dwelling gnomes, chiropractors examine backs before performing gentle adjustments designed to improve dorsal function and decrease pain. In unison with massage, reflexology, and reiki therapies, the centre strives to help heal bodily botherations, as well as prevent future injuries.
Always looking for the best ways to help the well-being of her clients, owner Anne-Marie Rathburn has pursued training in a number of massage modalities including myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, and lymphatic drainage. Amid the soothing, zenlike decor of potted plants and hardwood accents at East Windsor Massage Therapy Clinic, she leads a team of other registered massage therapists who work to improve joint mobility, release endorphins, and help trapped “ahhs” to escape from bodies with massage therapy that may include heat or ice, jade stone, or organic herbs from Thailand.
The technicians and aestheticians at Hometown Laser Clinic & Spa wield focused light to eliminate cellulite or fat, tighten the skin, and remove hair. They also pamper bodies with less invasive spa treatments, such as facials that utilize Canadian-based Dr Renaud skin products, the same ones supplied to the 2010 Oscars. And no matter what the treatment—body contouring with radio frequency or a basic massage—aestheticians provide free consultations to answer questions about what to expect and swap needlepoint advice.
2 Waves Day Spa offers a variety of beauty-inducing services within a brightlycoloured, beach-themed studio. The spa’s professional staff primps and pampers visitors with treatments that range from nailcare and waxing to massage and ear piercing. During facials, specialists use all-organic skincare products by Pangea Organics to thoroughly cleanse complexions and reset drifting tectonic faceplates.
