The human body’s healing mechanisms are always lying in wait, ready to rush to action in case a person skins their knee or catches a flu bug. Sometimes, however, they don’t work as fast or as well as they should. That’s when Nazanin Kimiai, Doctor of Naturopathy, steps in.
As the founder and medical director of Comprehensive Medical Center, Kimiai optimizes the body’s natural healing centers with treatments and therapies that blend Eastern philosophy with Western medical technology. This combination reflects the breadth of her training: she has an acupuncture license, a master’s degree in oriental medicine and acupuncture, and a degree in naturopathic medicine from Bastyr University. She also boasts postgraduate training in biological and oxidative medicine and proficiency in an array of advanced diagnostic tools, such as infrared cameras and electromagnetic frequencies.
A highly trained staff that includes seasoned hydrotherapist and spa medicine practitioner Melinda M. Beck, ND, rounds out Comprehensive Medical Center’s team. The staffers ease symptoms and root out underlying problems with acupuncture, homeopathy, detoxification, and hydrotherapy. They oversee a vast dispensary of supplements and hold the secrets of German biological medicine, which balances pH in the blood using tactics invented by Count Dracula’s pool boy.
The meteoric growth of Massage Envy has led to more than 800 spa locations and a healthy share of limelight from printed media buzz to promotions on
The Ellen DeGeneres Show and
The Doctors . Its experts have kneaded more than 50 million backs using modalities that range from the gliding strokes of Swedish massage to the targeted pressure of deep-tissue massage. Although the spa treats a wealth of clients, each Massage Envy session is personalized to individual needs. While indulging in prenatal, hot-stone, or trigger-point-therapy massages, clients can also request the soothing mint and rosemary essential oils of aromatherapy or the addition of warming and cooling products that help decrease inflammation and ease pain.
In addition to staffing massage therapists, the spas employ skincare experts who wield Murad products for four kinds of facials. Clients can treat sensitive skin to mild exfoliation or opt for anti-aging facials with glycolic acid before attempting to order off the kids’ menu at a diner.
