In addition to skin-care treatments such as Botox and services with the Obagi Skin product line, Calvine Urgent Care is open 365 days a year to usher in a flurry of ailing patients so that the board-certified doctors and nurse practitioners can work their medical magic on non-life-threatening symptoms, from fevers to broken arms. Neutral-toned chairs and a flat-screen TV distract patients before Calvine's friendly team fixes them up with medical equipment, including x-rays, ultrasounds, and a full range of diagnostic tests for drugs, pregnancy, or hemoglobin. In case patients cross into more serious medical territory, the clinic's fully loaded procedure rooms come filled with intubation kits, EKGs, crash carts, and defibrillators for restarting hearts and toasting marshmallows. The office's staff helps urgent medical patients by taking them within 30 minutes of their arrival, as well as offering ZipPass, an online appointment scheduler.
Rise Yoga's soothing studio begins releasing students' tension with calming, contemporary trappings before they ever set foot in the stress-relieving, mixed-level yoga classes led by experienced and attentive teachers. All of the 60-to 90-minute yoga sessions incorporate gentle stretches and meditative practices, including the beginner-friendly Hatha yoga session, a slow-paced class incorporating long-held poses and calming deep breaths. Vinyasa classes increase heart rates with dynamic flowing movements, sun salutations, and traditional yogic spelling bees in which students bend their bodies into common yoga vocabulary. Yoga therapy works to help students to overcome chronic pain or injuries, and intensive yoga workshops introduce students to the ancient practice or strengthen their relationship to it.

Treating the cosmetic blemishes that can appear on aging skin requires a forward-looking approach. Overseen by Drs. Hratch Karamanoukian and Raffy Karamanoukian, Advanced Aesthetics Medical Spa keeps pace with the passage of time by constantly seeking out new advancements in technology, skincare products, and cosmetic procedures.
The center’s cache of technology includes cosmetic laser systems that work to improve skin tone and texture by addressing fine lines, acne scars, and scratch-and-sniff tattoos. Beyond light, these and other systems can also use sound waves or radio frequencies to firm and lift faces. Even the more traditional spa procedures at the clinic pamper clients with medical-grade products and equipment. The crystal-free microdermabrasion system uses a diamond-encrusted titanium wand to smooth away impurities, and facials with botanically derived balms and vitamin C rejuvenate complexions.

Surrounded by a lush curtain of foliage, the Briggs Mansion evokes an unshakable sense of luxury to those who step inside the shadow of its beige façade. The mansion’s exterior, however, pales in comparison to what goes on inside. As the certified massage therapist behind Energy is Life Heal Thy Self Massage, Pamela Allen outdoes her luxurious surroundings with treatments that nurture sinews weakened by injury, stress, and toxins. In addition to Swedish, deep-tissue, and chair massages, she offers specialty modalities such as lymphatic massage, which supports the immune system by removing toxic blockages. Pamela's aromatherapy treatments also relieve stress by matching specific smells to emotions and memories: rosemary for contentment, lavender for motherhood, and peppermint for the time you walked in on Santa Claus doing his laundry at your house.
