Danielle Rivera, owner of Tru Massage Therapy, did not set out to become a massage therapist. "I like helping people," she says, and she did so for many years as a CNA in nursing homes. When she began to transition to a medical-assistant program, Rivera discovered her passion for massage. She got her massage license in 2008 and never looked back. Now, Rivera and a team of therapists provide 10 massage modalities and myriad spa services.
In addition to botanical body wraps and waxing services, Rivera's talent for clinical massage has improved her patients' lives and her ability to open industrial-size jars of pickles. "I had a client that could only lift his arm 90 degrees, and after working on him. . . he could go up to 160 degrees." She has also provided relief for migraine sufferers. Clients who "were taking prescription pain meds. . . were able to cut down their prescriptions significantly" or repurpose them altogether into beaded necklaces.
Total Nutrition amplifies weight-loss regimens and fitness routines with a vast roster of vitamins, health supplements, and other workout boosters. Protein supplements, such as Lean Active 7 protein shakes, fortify muscles' tiny carpenters with the tools they need to build new additions, and multivitamins and health boosters spur energy levels and aid weight loss by infusing the body with the same extra nutrients found in unappetizing algae bars. Staff members, all of whom are certified sports nutritionists, also discuss goals, diets, and other needs with clients, and share tips on maintaining a healthy BMI or choosing the best triple cheeseburgers to use as dumbbells.
The epidermis excavators at Hello Gorgeous unearth healthy, vital faces from the rubble of dirt and expired skin. Recline in the quiet, calming atmosphere of a private room, and unwind as facial experts buff countenance bark with natural, nontoxic, paraben-free products. After cleaning, skilled fingers massage beaten brows and wipe away unsightly dirt and too-forcefully blown kisses. The session concludes with a facemask—perfect for both deep cleansing parched skin and performing Kabuki theater—which is topped off with a final moisturizing act. With the second option, in addition to the facial process, aestheticians will apply either an enzyme peel commonly used for mature skin, a glycolic peel for blemish reduction, or a banana peel for comic relief. These exfoliation exorcisms drive away dead-skin cells haunting faces with flakes and uneven buildup.

The first time Dr. Jennifer Foss walked into a chiropractor's office, it was as a patient after a car accident had left her struggling with chronic back pain. After a series of spinal adjustments though, her pain abated and she was inspired to work in chiropractic healing herself. Today, when she walks into a chiropractor's office, it's at her own clinic at Westside Chiropractic Center.
Using her hands and assorted instruments, Dr. Foss adjusts patients' spines, complementing her handiwork with massage and regimens of rehabilitative exercises clients can do at home. She and her team treat aches with other therapies, too. Cryotherapy, for instance, refreshes muscles with a blast of numbingly cold air far more efficiently than other methods like waiting to drop into an icy dunk tank. The clinic's i-Lipo treatments, meanwhile, noninvasively contour body areas with laser light.
To remove unwanted body hair, salon professionals typically turn to waxing. However, Hello Gorgeous’ staff recommends a different method: sugaring. Made from an all-natural sugar paste and containing zero chemicals, the solution sticks to the hair rather than the skin, leading to less irritation and catering to those with sensitive skin, eczema, or varicose veins. Clients who want something more permanent can turn to the salon’s electrolysis technicians, who use electrical current to zap follicles and tattoos of mosquitoes from the face and body. This is done using the Vitaderm 4000, an advanced ultimate microcurrent system that delivers precise results in facial- and body-remodeling treatments.
Though they’re experts at depilation, the Hello Gorgeous crew’s knowledge expands beyond hair removal. The team offers a variety of salon and spa services, including haircuts, mani-pedis, body-sculpting treatments, and facials.
