Hawthorne, CA, September 29, 2009 –
HealthCare Partners will mark the opening of the beautiful Manhattan Beach Medical Spa with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and reception at 11:30 am on October 2 at 5400 Rosecrans Ave. Officials from the city of Hawthorne and representatives from HealthCare Partners will be in attendance to celebrate the second addition to the family of HealthCare Partners medical spas in the South Bay.

"In today's stressful climate, we need to create environments for people to relax, rejuvenate, and restore their sense of well-being,” says Elizabeth Walsh, the medical spa’s director. “Our medical spa offers more than the traditional cosmetic procedures. We provide a range of services, from acupuncture to lifestyle coaching that will impact the overall wellness of our patients. What could be better than improving your appearance and finding your bliss at the same time?”

Visitors to the medical spa will encounter a Zen-like oasis where emphasis is placed on science-based, results-oriented treatments that are also revitalizing. In addition to acupuncture and life-style coaching, the Manhattan Beach Medical Spa offers nutritional makeovers, far-infrared sauna with chromatherapy lighting, Botox™, Radiesse™, laser hair reduction, cosmetic teeth-whitening, and more.

Like all HealthCare Partners medical spas, the Manhattan Beach location will be staffed with medical professionals, including physicians and nurses. Diane Petersen, MD, will oversee clinical operations as medical director. The spa’s daily operations are managed by Sybil Hill.

The Manhattan Beach Medical Spa is an environmentally friendly space featuring bamboo floors, non-toxic paint, and equipment with low environmental impact.

The medical spa is located next to the HealthCare Partners Medical Group office, in the same building as Equinox. Plentiful, free parking is also available in the adjacent lot. The Manhattan Beach Medical Spa’s business hours are Monday through Friday, 9 am to 8 pm, and Saturday, 8 am to 5 pm.  Call 310.297.7894 for more information or an appointment.
