Though she had never experienced a massage of her own, Janice Amyson knew that she had found her calling as soon as she entered massage school. She carried this initial passion through her courses and into her career at The Amazing Hands Therapeutic Massage, where today she strives to empathize with her aching clients. To make sure that she understands and addresses their individual aches, Amyson never begins treatment without a brief consultation. This all-important sit-down, during which she inquires about areas of particular soreness, allows her to customize sessions that may incorporate modalities such as deep-tissue massage, TMJ treatment, repetitive-use therapy, and medical massage.
The treatment room?s low lighting, aromatherapy candles, and lush green plants join together to soothe frazzled nerves. Arbonne lotions and a heated table aid Amyson?s nimble fingers as she unkinks knotted musculature and rewires cybernetic limbs. Other therapeutic elements include Mentholatum, which opens sinuses to allow for easier breathing, and foot warmers to comfort cold toes. In this same room, Janice also treats bodies with soothing spa treatments such as mud-mask facials and paraffin dips.
Dr. Nicki Hill enjoys sharing her optometric skills with those in need, whether that entails working with patients at U.S. Veterans Affairs Hospitals or performing free eye exams for tornado victims in Tuscaloosa and Pratt City. Shoppers can find the same level of care inside Bell Road Eyewear's airy emporium. There, staff members guide visitors through a large inventory of designer eyewear and illuminate the distinctions between single-vision plastic and polycarbonate lenses. Frames by Danish brand ProDesign and chic styles from Vogue, DKNY, and Jai Kudo rest atop antique-style wood tables. Shoppers can also peruse selections of children's glasses, sunglasses, and monocles fitted with stained glass. Although Dr. Hill can diagnose visual capabilities in-house, Bell Road Eyewear will also fill lens prescriptions from outside optometrists.

Firm Body Bootcamp blasts apart repetitive gym routines and packs the fissures with functional strength training and a blend of fun and no-nonsense equipment. During indoor and outdoor camps, clients may swing kettlebells to crank up triceps, wrestle with battle ropes, toss medicine balls, or use their own body weight to build muscle on suspension equipment. The 45-minute routines kick-start heart rates with cardio drills, and team-based exercises breed camaraderie among campers and ensure backup should the exercise equipment rise up against its masters. Because its maneuvers are fully modifiable, there's ample room at the fitness table for guests of every experience level, including those who have never set foot in a gym.
Supplementary dietary plans and progress-tracking tools collaborate to keep metabolism racing outside of class. To date, Firm Body Bootcamp has helped more than 13 individuals lose 100 pounds each, the weight equivalent of a compact car that refuses to exercise.
Dual board-certified Dr. Victor Mendoza equips a staff of skilled professionals to craft safe skin solutions tailored for each client. Using a Jessner's solution of hydroxyl acids from natural sources such as citrus or plants, technicians apply chemical peels to help give all skin types a radiant glow. While each peel can be used by itself, guests can also receive multiple treatments spaced four weeks apart to help combat acne, shrink pore sizes, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Dr. Mendoza's team also combines traditional weight-management supplements with new-age laser treatments to help clients not only shed fat, but also remedy internal ailments such as fatigue or insomnia. The staff tailors each treatment program with preliminary tests that detect the hormone and toxin levels in each patient?s body, which helps determine whether their issues come from environmental forces or simply eating too many pennies. Lifestyle makeovers go even further with Fountain of Youth Medical Spa?s other services, such as laser hair removal and beauty injections.
Medical Weight Loss by Healthogenics' three-step process helps weight-loss-seekers shed bulk and maintain their svelte figures through proper nutrition and supplemental lipotropic injections infused with vitamin B12. First, the professional medical staff conducts thorough medical evaluations, including a full-body-composition analysis and an individual consultation to discuss weight-loss goals. Using this information, as well as dietary needs or restrictions, the physician creates a custom weight-loss plan specific to each slimmer.
The stabilization phase comes next, when the condemned fat has been banished and the doctors discontinue the prescription of appetite suppressants and other pharmaceutical aids. Trained specialists continue to offer weekly support to help dieters stay on course.
Weight-loss maintenance, the program?s end goal, leaves folks feeling healthier, slimmer, and ready to sport horizontal stripes on their wedding days.
