Jai Michael Barry's massages are as relaxing as the new-age music he loves to create. That's because the founder of Ancient Art Massage & Bodywork, who has recorded three albums and played numerous benefit concerts in his other life as a songwriter, gets the little details right: the massages take place on heated tables and incorporate treatments ranging from ayurvedic aromatherapy to egyptian ear candling. It's also because his repertoire is so broad. Jai can spend a session relieving stress with Swedish techniques, treating head and back pain with craniosacral therapy, or manipulating the body's energy with reiki. He also leads meditation sessions on the night of each full moon.
The technicians at LaserDerm MedSpa & Wellness Center wield lasers to smooth and contour bodies. They specialize in laser hair removal to permanently reduce fuzz on bikini lines, underarms, and toes. To whittle down excess curves, they activate a Zerona device that uses low-level lasers to cause fat cells to release their contents as clients lie down and relax, read, or listen to the Tuvan throat singing playing on their iPod. Additionally, the center offers treatments for skin issues such as lines, scars, or sun damage.
Dr. Steven Levine is something of a local healthcare celebrity. For nearly 10 years, he hosted a radio show called "Back to Health," covering chiropractic topics and educating Orlando listeners on how to overcome common aches and pains. But it's not his notoriety that stands out most—Nor even his more than 30 years of experience in the chiropractic field. Mostly, Dr. Levine prides himself as a diagnostician talented in locating his patents' sources of pain.
For his entire career, Dr. Levine has taken the greater missions of the chiropractic practice to heart, attending 100-hour post-graduate programs that deal with diagnosing and monitoring various types of spinal issues. He's equally passionate about treating those issues without the use of drugs. Once he's deduced the source of his patient's pain during examinations, he corrects them with gentle spinal adjustments that require no drugs, needles, or yelling.
Dr. Dana K. Schoonmaker started working in the field of biomechanics and rehabilitation in 1994 and has owned two personal training studios.

Working with the likes of professional athletes, screen actors, and stunt personnel, Dr. Schoonmaker incorporates experience and knowledge into corrective measures for healing bodies of all ages, abilities, and conditions. She customizes her patients' sessions based on their reaction to force, with adjustments made and questions answered during the procedure through open communication. Keeping the activities of all clients in mind, Dr. Schoonmaker makes sure her patients are able to maintain their active lifestyles.
Chiropractic care is Dr. Wesley Hohman's anti-drug. Rather than prescribing medications, he uses spinal adjustments and other drug-free approaches, such as rehabilitative exercises, to treat his client's ailments and prevent future ones. He tailors his treatment plans to the client at hand, working to alleviate all manner of issues, including back and neck pain, by balancing the nervous system. To complement chiropractic care, he and his team also offer nutritional guidance, helping clients feel healthy without only eating foods shaped like orthopedic chairs.

Along with a practiced staff, Forever Trim's board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. James Farrell, works to restore youthful appearances with a diverse menu of surgical and cosmetic procedures. Botox, Juvéderm, and various laser treatments aim to erase signs of age from the face—wrinkles, sagging, and crumbs from decade-old birthday cake—whether they're brought on by genetic or environmental factors. Premedication and local or general anesthesia coax patients into a hazy state of sensationless bliss as doctors remove excess fat and skin below the chin or jaw, smooth out forehead furrows, or evict lipids, while Zerona treatments help shed inches without surgery.
Most procedures are performed at Forever Trim's independently certified Winter Park surgical center, though consultations, pre- or post-op exams, or spirited games of Trivial Pursuit can be conducted at the Orlando location.
