The three sisters who run Be Well, A Creating Wellness Center built their unique wellness program on a basic philosophy: that health—or the lack thereof—is the direct result of the nurturing or neglect of three categories—the physical, the biochemical, and the psychological. Thus, using technological evaluations and the guidance of knowledgeable practitioners, staffers assess clients’ health based on the strength of these three categories in their own lifestyle. They refer to the result of this evaluation as a wellness quotient—a numerical number that symbolizes the client’s position on a wellness continuum.
However, it is after this thorough assessment that the real work begins. The practitioners then curate a customized wellness program for each client based on their assessment, drawing from the center’s wide range of services. Clients may see a chiropractor for a misaligned back; they may receive nutritional counseling to help them improve their diet; they may partake in yoga, indulge in a thermal massage, enroll in fitness classes, and balance their chi through acupuncture—all in order to nurture their specific wellness deficits. And throughout the entire process, wellness coaches provide clients with support, encouragement, and constant reassessments to help them view their own progress as they return to vigor and full-body health.
A longtime resident of Windsor, Dr. Patrick Smith, M.D. returned to the area after completing medical school and opened a family practice in 1987. He enjoyed the work but longed to transition into dermatology, for which he held both a passion and professional training. Years later, he assembled a team of estheticians and opened his namesake skincare clinic: Dr. P.X. Smith Medical Cosmetics.
Open for more than seven years, the clinic offers cosmetic and medical-grade services including Botox and Juvederm, laser skin-resurfacing treatments, and mole removal from both faces and lawns. Dr. Smith performs all medical consultations and directly supervises treatments performed by his highly trained staff.
As a skincare expert, the doctor is dedicated to educating his community about the dangers of excessive sun exposure. He worked at the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre before starting his family practice and coordinated the Mark Hunt Melanoma Awareness Fund-Raising Walk to heighten awareness of skin cancer, particularly malignant melanoma.
In 2003, a woman arrived at Martin's Coiffeur & Spa, and with her came her hair—as long as she was tall, and grown out over the course of 21 years. According to the Windsor Star, Martin himself worked with Dorothy Parsons for nearly three hours, performing a dramatic cut that allowed Parsons to donate more than four feet of hair to an organization that creates wigs for children battling cancer.
That's just one example of what Martin can do, thanks to his training from educators in both California and Paris and his 2.5 decades of experience. Combining this expertise with technology, he offers men and women high-fashion haircare and invites them to partake of massages, facials, and other aesthetic services. An onsite computer system allows patrons to get a glimpse of what they may look like with a particular 'do; computers also play a significant role in the spa's nail imaging—a service that allows clients to outfit nails with thousands of designs, personal photos, or a tiny picture of a picture of a picture of your hands.
When a guest steps into Refresh Day Spa, the outside world is immediately quieted. Privacy glass in the lobby obscures the actions of passersbys and meditative music lull patrons into a relaxed state. Four treatment rooms encircle the reception area, and inside these rooms massage therapists and aestheticians pamper bodies with naturally derived services. Dermalogica products—which are known to eschew irritants such as alcohol, artificial colours, and tiny tickle monsters—fuel a selection of custom facials and hot stones for massages and body wraps. Down the hall, stylists and nail technicians set to work in a salon equipped with massaging pedicure chairs and a plasma-screen television. Laser hair removal reigns as their most popular service, for which the spa may offer a 20 per cent discount off the price of competitors who use the same equipment.
