The experts at Northstar Facial & Body Sculpting know that there is no way to turn back the clock, but they also know that time?s body-wearying effects aren?t as unchangeable as its passage. They fight the wrinkles and blemishes that accumulate over the years with FDA-approved Beautiful Image microcurrent technology. During facials, the currents stimulate blood flow and mitigate blemishes while tightening and smoothing skin, giving clients an alternative to remedies such as undergoing surgically invasive face-lifts or taping baby pictures to their foreheads. The center also uses the technology for body sculpting, which works to ease cellulite, diminish sagging, and erase scars and stretch marks. In addition to these microcurrent treatments, Northstar delves into elastin-infusion therapy, which was developed to heal soldiers injured in Iraq. Now cleared for civilian use, the therapy helps the body retain collagen, which aids in skin hydration and can mitigate laughlines around the eyes and mouth.
Despite a long list of beautifying hair services and soothing massages, the most important sense at C'zar Salon-Spa is not sight or touch, but smell. Stemming from natural Aveda products, aromas drift throughout the space, tinting the air with rosemary, peppermint, and lavender scents that evoke pastoral scenes pulled straight out of the organic farms on which many of their ingredients grew. The Stress-Fix line of lotions?whose fragrances help to reduce anxiety?cloaks hands and feet in sage during specialty mani-pedis, and customized blends of essential oils augment Elemental Nature massages and facials.
Plants play a role in even the most detailed procedures at C'zar Salon-Spa. Flowers contribute extracts to the salon's cosmetics, and Nufree hair-removal formulas provide a botanical alternative to wax that's more gentle than tweezing with a venus flytrap. Although they don't incorporate leafy greens, wellness treatments such as acupuncture and cupping strive to round out makeovers by goading the body?s healing processes. For special events, the staff can accommodate groups inside the calming venue or transport their perfumed practices to a specified location.
Owned and operated by physical therapists, Accelerated Rehabilitation Centers welcomes patients into a massive network of 200 centers. Accelerated Rehabilitation Centers' cohort of therapists helps to restore the strength, motor skills, and physical functions of patients.
The overarching approach is defined by a patients-first philosophy—the therapists actively listen and understand their patients' issues before crafting individual recovery programs tailored to athletes, children, industrial workers, or cartoon coyotes with anvil-related injuries. The rehab pros also serve community youth by supporting programs such as Kick It Right, a soccer program designed to enrich children's lives.
At Ideal Weight Loss, helpful technicians work with clients to develop lasting weight-loss plans using noninvasive methods—meaning no surgeries, medications, or shots. At the root of the clinic’s mission is the Ideal Weight Loss method, which begins with complimentary consultations and is nurtured via a partnership between staffers and patients. Working as a team, they attempt to set realistic goals, which can be achieved in part thanks to the provided gourmet protein diets. In addition to the four-phase long-term plan, the clinic also offers body-sculpting services such as wraps and LipoLaser.
At Chirosport Family Health Center, Dr. Brian L. Sailor helps patients heal from injury, stress, or sickness with non-invasive physical therapy. Each non-surgical chiropractic treatment, from gentle spinal adjustments to soothing massage, aims to treat the root causes of diseases and chronic pain, instead of simply treating symptoms or replacing ailing limbs with mannequin parts. Here, patients can also assuage aches or fight the urge to smoke with specialized acupuncture procedures, or asses and treat their allergies with BioSET enzyme therapy.
Though the licensed practitioners at Acupuncture INC—Brian Musial and Tom Betts—came to acupuncture from different backgrounds, both discovered a passion for the technique after experiencing its results first-hand. Tom, for one, witnessed the relief it offered his clients while working as a personal trainer, and Brian recognized its potential while recovering from a sports injury that wouldn't respond to traditional medicine or inspirational speeches from his coach. Today, the pair strive to provide the same relief to clients that they were able to enjoy, but for a much wider array of afflictions—from back pain and headaches to insomnia and allergies.
After a brief consultation, the acupuncturist inserts hair-thin needles placed at key points on the body's energy pathways, thereby dislodging blockages of energy that might be preventing healing. While needles are central to each acupuncture treatment, sessions may be accompanied by other modalities such as cupping, magnets, or heat therapy.
