The staffers at MD Body & Med Spa devote themselves entirely to aesthetic services, including laser-hair removal and the circumference-reducing operation of the Zerona cold laser. Under the discerning eye of the center's medical director, an all-female team of laser technicians carries out each 40-minute treatment gently and efficiently. The FDA-approved procedure is completely noninvasive and requires minimal downtime. Staff also administer IPL treatments, facials, and injections, while waxers remove unwanted hair.
Licensed aesthetician Patricia Scarr and the team at Bella In You Day Spa apply years of experience to treat a variety of skin conditions. Aided by all-natural products from Éminence Organic Skin Care, they rejuvenate faces with chemical peels, microdermabrasion, microcurrent facials, and other advanced skincare treatments. They employ red, blue, yellow, green, and plaid LED light to target specific issues such as acne or sun damage, and can help to ease the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and that one spiteful freckle. A licensed massage therapist uses a detail-oriented approach to providing relaxing and therapeutic massages and body treatments, tailoring each experience to the specific needs of that customer.

Q&A with Marj, Owner/Practitioner
Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
All facials end with a hot aromatic towel and customized finishing creams, serums, and sunscreen. All facial clients will benefit from some degree of energy work, as well as a gentle acupressure scalp massage and relaxing facial massage (in the La Frande Classique European facial).
What are some of your most popular services? What do you think clients love them so much?
The nonsurgical face-lift is a great no-downtime alternative to turning back the clock. I have many clients who combine massage with a facial service in the same appointment for an all encompassing mini spa day. I am certified in chemical peels and microdermabrasion. People ... leave feeling great but don't know exactly why. It's the healing energy they receive—I promise.
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
i love the healing aspect of everything I do. I genuinely care about each client's personal story, their life, and helping them improve their quality of life. I am passionate about educating a client about products, ingredients, and their own bodies.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I'm an ethnic-skin specialist [and do] Reiki energy work. Regular clients benefit from me noticing subtle changes in their body or skin and correcting them within the parameters of my licensure and skill set. Good home skincare doesn't have to be rocket science. It can be simple & straightforward.
Within Asana Body Mind Hot Yoga’s cozy studio, overhead panels generate the heat that makes students sweat in temperatures of up to 40 degrees Celsius. Since each panel warms only the students and their mats—rather than the air itself—the heat can better penetrate their skin, encouraging healthy perspiration to oust bodily toxins.
Employing the skills he learned while studying in the Indian province of Kerala, studio director Jason Campbell leads yogis through series of poses during a variety of hot-yoga classes, helping them hone their internal rhythm and stretch their bodies while building peace of mind. Jason and the other instructors walk students through each pose and adjust their postures as needed as they bend and sway atop springy cork floors designed to minimize the impact on joints and keep students afloat on the sea of sweat. To encourage a sense of community within the studio, students are encouraged to socialize after class, and staffers serve shots of nutrient-rich wheatgrass juice upon request before and after each session.
Board-certified surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Raval possesses a high level of skill when it comes to aesthetic procedures, even sharing his expertise by training other medical professionals in how to properly administer Botox. At Rocky Mountain Laser Aesthetics, he trains his own staff to perform a variety of revitalizing services, including laser hair reduction and Sciton laser treatments that reduce the appearance of veins or freckles caused by flying too close to the sun. Treatments specifically for the face, such as IPL photofacials and DiamondTome microdermabrasion, diminish wrinkles and signs of sun damage to leave the skin looking younger.
While a student at Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Robert Levingston, owner of Innovative Alternative Medicine Inc, studied a range of chiropractic techniques to ensure each of his patients would be adequately cared for. His repertoire includes techniques such as diversified, flexion-distraction, Thompson Drop-Table, upper cervical, and applied kinesiology. To bolster his abilities even more, Dr. Levingston received a certification in acupuncture, which works to alleviate anything from allergies to chronic pain with the insertion of hair-thin needles. The staff at Innovative Alternative Medicine Inc also includes licensed estheticians who perform a variety of skin-refining treatments.
