When David Obando was 16 years old, he weighed 240 pounds and had a body fat percentage of 28%. Something had to give. With the help of a new workout routine and a change in diet, he was able to lose and keep off more than 60 pounds. Today, David is a certified personal trainer and massage therapist, as well as a master Pilates instructor and corrective exercise specialist. In the comfort of his private studio, clients can solicit David for weight loss advice and athletic performance enhancement, or request a therapeutic massage with flowing Swedish strokes or deep-tissue pressure.
Led by semblance-savvy husband-and-wife team Dr. Daniel Kort and nurse practitioner JoAnne Engel Kort, Renew Clinic and Spa restores bodily beauty with medical expertise and cutting-edge laser technology. Light years beyond dated light bulb hair removal, laser hair removal gently coaxes rogue follicles from their derma dens and permanently eviscerates them after an average of six to ten treatments. A numbing cream thickens skin against the laser's subtle sarcasm, with most patients reporting only a mild tingling sensation, increasing with the darkness and thickness of the hair.
As a division of Salem Women's Clinic, Bella Rose Medispa fosters both beauty and good health with a team of skilled aestheticians overseen by licensed doctors and nurse practitioners. The welcoming medical professionals place a premium on comfort and confidentiality, enshrining patients in private treatment rooms equipped with plush recliners, prewarmed blankets, soft music, and recordings of Orson Welles reciting the lyrics to whale songs. Personalized consultations and one-on-one care ensure facial peels, laser hair removal, and laser cosmetic procedures are tailored for every individual set of skin. Clients rejuvenate sun-damaged skin or banish varicose veins with targeted treatments, or sculpt their bodies with SmartLipo sessions and medically supervised weight-loss plans.
