Better Life's medical staff members walk clients through a doctor-directed weight-loss program designed to adjust nutritional habits in a way that fits their lifestyle. Supporting the plan with science, they help people to lose up to 5 pounds per week while still enjoying regular, everyday foods. During a one-hour initial visit, they assess the client's medical history and health factors, such as blood pressure, pulse rate, and the number of old treadmills piled under their bed. If deemed necessary, an EKG reveals information about heart health before a consultation yields fitness guidelines and a nutrition plan tailored to individual goals.
Eating plans are comprised of foods that can be easily found at the grocery store, and they place importance on when the patient eats, helping to avoid late-night hunger pains or the awkward consequences of sneaking midnight snacks from the neighbor's pantry. Patients also take home a prescription appetite suppressant to curb cravings between meals.
At subsequent weekly visits, staffers gauge progress via weigh-ins and body-composition analyses, administering injections of vitamin B12 to help to boost energy and lipotropic nutrients that aim to break down fat. They gradually add exercise to the routine to complete the weight-loss program and help clients to keep off the weight they've lost.
At Trinity’s Massage and Laser, LLC, staff members have mastered 13 different types of massages, which they use to relieve tension in clients' bodies before it escapes from their mouths in the form of a scream.

Reflexology and craniosacral therapy sessions work with the body’s energy channels to balance systems and induce relaxation.

During the treatment, the laser’s beams shatter into microbeams, which noninvasively alleviate burn scars and shrink large pores. To round out her selection, Darcy stocks a variety of skincare products, which range from oil-free makeup remover to a pH-balanced glycolic mud cleanser.

Discover Health & Wellness's staff of chiropractors and massage therapists is dedicated to boosting clients’ overall well-being by building relationships and facilitating education. Initial consultations and noninvasive tests help discover undetected nerve damage or vertebrae playing musical chairs, allowing doctors to adjust spines and therapists to massage muscles with technical precision. The doctors themselves can vouch for the efficacy of chiropractic care. As a young man, Doctor of Chiropractic Cameron Hall worked on ski patrol. As he explains in his bio video, skiing for 10 hours a day took a hard-hitting toll on his back and knees, and nearly laid him low. Happily, a chiropractor on staff set his spine straight, saving him from a life bereft of his favorite hobbies, including rock climbing and river rafting. The experience inspired him to become a chiropractor.
