Dr. Teresa Nguyen and the staff at House of Wellness Spa use their musculospinoskeletal expertise and holistic approach to align spines, clear chakra freeways, inspire weight loss, and slacken stressed-out shoulders. A 15-minute acupuncture consultation determines a constellation of points for needles to enter into the body, stimulating blood flow and attempting to embolden immune systems. Using the same stress-deflating principles, acupressure begins with a relaxing hot-stone treatment, which loosens up muscles before a therapist plies pressure points to erase tension, pain, and memories of full-contact games of Trivial Pursuit. The waist-slimming-and-firming session blends acupuncture with a hodgepodge of slimming solutions—lymphatic drainage massage, low-frequency stimulation, and vacuum therapy—which may result in up to 2 inches of loss over the course of 6 to 12 sessions. Like fingers on a hand, the slimming-and-firming treatments are most effective in sets of six.
Dr. Ki, who has practiced in South Korea, and the team at AcuRadiance use acupuncture and asian medicine for both health and beauty purposes. The practitioners address digestive, respiratory, and muscular ailments with traditional acupuncture, and they help clients quit smoking during smoking-cessation acupuncture treatments. They also use acupuncture needles to perform nonsurgical facial rejuvenation, boosting blood flow to the skin and toning muscles around the cheeks and mouth. Needles further rejuvenate the skin during microneedle-therapy treatments, which puncture facial skin in order to facilitate wound healing and the production of collagen.
Ajasrika Wellness Spa gets its name from an Ayurvedic word for activities that promote health and wellbeing. Owner Sanja Oropeza founded the business to provide a healing space where clients can relax and forget about stress while the body is treated holistically. Licensed therapists and aestheticians administer customized massages, waxing treatments, facials, and even life counseling. Arrive early for your appointment and you can unwind in the soothing Tea Lounge, where complimentary herbal tea and fresh fruit is served.
The aestheticians and health aficionados at Skin D' Amour foster total well-being by treating patrons with a holistic approach to beauty. To enhance the exterior, skin experts harness the power of their own line of products as well as formulas from brands such as Murad, Josephine, and EltaMD. Nail techs mollycoddle digits, and waxing techs leave skinscapes feeling smooth. To cleanse the body's insides, acupuncturists release clients' toxins; massage therapists reduce stress; and weight-loss experts dispense advice on how to shed pounds into thin air rather than onto the couch.
Skin D' Amour supplements its salon and spa services with a modest lineup of fitness classes. The center's squad of instructors lead group classes in tai chi, yoga meditation, Zumba, and more to help participants maintain their look and feel through consistent, healthy habits.
Dr. Khanh Tran and his staff operate under a simple premise: the structure of the body determines its function. Dr. Tran keeps this in mind as he runs his hands along his clients’ spines, looking for the telltale subluxations and slipped disks that may signal any number of physical issues. Though these issues run the gamut from chronic discomfort to a freely rotating head, the chiropractic staff consistently relies on an approach that triggers the body’s recuperative abilities with natural, drug-free therapies. The multidisciplined team works as a single unit, combining acupuncture, massage therapy, and nutritional counseling in a program anchored by the doctor’s chiropractic adjustments.
More than a thousand years have passed since healers learned that illnesses could be cured through stimulation of certain body parts. A wide array of frameworks developed for how best that healing should be brought about. Licensed acupuncturist Winston Wang has taken components of these frameworks to craft his own: understand the patient's condition, set up a treatment plan, and test it. At Orange Acupuncture, clients can seek Winston's techniques to treat maladies ranging from depression and insomnia to seasonal allergies.
