Clients seeking renewal arrive at Dermedica Laser & Spa to find a medical spa and a wellness center with spa treatments together under one roof. The aestheticians of the med spa use technologically advanced treatments to undo the damage that age, time, and wrestling in a gravel driveway wreak on skin. Lasers help reduce the growth of unwanted body hair without the tedium of tweezing or shaving, and chemical peels and injectables help minimize the appearances of fine lines on faces. The staff also performs laser skin rejuvenation, cellulite treatments, body contouring, and hair restoration. Meanwhile at the wellness center, patrons unwind and relax with facials, massages, and body treatments.
Hardwood floors and subtly patterned white walls give a pristine look to Alla Wellness & Beauty Lounge, where the staff aims to give clients a luxurious day-spa experience, no matter the treatment they are signed up to receive. Before leading patrons into their private treatment room for a facial, staffers introduce them to the infrared sauna. In a cozy nook, nail techs perform fungus-removal services, while elsewhere body treatments get a boost from Guinot products or Palomar IPL technology.
At the age of 24, Doctor of Chiropractic Alan Pintaric developed a back condition while playing professional tennis. He thought that he wouldn't play again, but with chiropractic care, he was able to continue. Today, he continues to play with the Toronto Men's League. Convinced of the efficacy of chiropractic care by his firsthand experience, he decided to earn his degree in the field at Los Angeles College of Chiropractic.
At Health Solutions, Dr. Pintaric helps restore patients' health with chiropractic adjustments that realign the spine and rehabilitative exercises that keep pain at bay long after appointments have ended. Patients can also stop by for acupuncture sessions and relaxing massages performed by one of Health Solutions' RMTs.
Tina brings a vast knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to her eponymous health centre. She started her journey in the world of healthcare as a nurse and pharmacist in China, and after 15 years, she found herself drawn to TCM's holistic healing abilities. She went back to school to study acupuncture and herbal medicine for two years, and eventually moved to Toronto, where she opened Tina's Health Wellness Centre to share her passion.
She oversees a team that works to soothe pain and stress with a variety of holistic techniques. They relieve tension and aches with tui na, a form of Chinese bodywork that blends massage, traction, and acupressure techniques, in addition to acupuncture, cupping, and gua sha scraping therapy. With reflexology, they target specific organ systems by precisely kneading points on the feet, and their ionic foot soaks help draw toxins out through the soles of the feet, otherwise known as the body's dumpin' grounds.
At Amorphous Spa, experienced aestheticians and massage therapists work to eliminate stress and tension with soothing body, skin, and nail services. Their services include relaxation, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages as well as cleansing and exfoliating facial treatments and nail-beautifying mani-pedis.
