Members at Curves, a fitness center designed for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, strengthen bones, and increase metabolism. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use your own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottles to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions can create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to help create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
Doctors of Chiropractic Freericks and Doyle make adjustments at two Discover Chiropractic locations, addressing pain, arthritis, stress, and whiplash in their discipline's signature, drug-free style. The practice takes on patients of most ages, including children and older adults, establishing it as a wellness center where one's entire family can receive treatment. And family is important to each of the clinic's practitioners, as each doctor lists time with their loved ones among their favorite off-hours activities. That approach informs the team’s care philosophy, affording the doctors firsthand perspectives on the physical demands of many of their patients’ up-tempo lifestyles. With adjustments, x-rays, and other modern equipment, the team is able to find the sources of patients’ pain and help them heal while getting them back to their regular routines with less discomfort.
For certified massage therapist Daniel Morales, massages that merely relax the body are doing only half their jobs. Whereas some massages induce sleepy serenity, his therapeutic strokes focus on vanquishing pain. Deep-tissue and trigger-point massages deliver firm, cross-grain strokes to break apart adhesions and root out imbedded knots, and sports massages lengthen the muscles to alleviate stiffness.
The medical professionals at Valley Medical Art specialize in injectables, which they use to help patients stay beautiful regardless of age. They offer free consultations, and then use products such as Juvéderm, Restylane, Perlane, Botox, and Dysport to treat wrinkles, lines, and uneven skin texture.
Overseen by doctors Shane Whiteley and Bryn Henderson, Whiteley Wellness Center ushers patients toward their weight-loss goals through the use of lipotropic injections and informed medical advice. Designed to optimize liver health, lipotropics are a blend of vitamins and amino acids that target fat metabolism and can help facilitate weight loss. Whiteley's adipose experts will walk bodies through a one-hour introductory assessment, which includes a complete history, evaluation, and a choreographed kabuki flash dance. Introductory appointments also include the first lipotropic injection, followed by two or five additional weekly injections. Whiteley's medical professionals will also share brain-nourishing nuggets on exercise, lifestyle changes, and general health supplements such as appetite suppressants, available for an additional $10 per week. Caring staff is on hand seven days a week for questions, support, or spontaneous trust falls.
