The human body is composed of hundreds of individual bones and muscles, none of which would work in harmony were it not for two essential elements: the mind and the soul. The therapists of Core Healing Bodyworks do everything in their power to ensure that body, mind, and soul are operating on the same page. This means that their massages don’t just treat physical ailments; they penetrate the body’s outer layers to relieve stress and relax anxieties. Aside from classic Swedish and deep-tissue treatments, the therapists offer special modalities, such as hot-stone therapy and reflexology. Reflexology treatments work to balance the body’s energies by applying pressure to specific points on the hands, feet, and dorsal fins.
When CBS’s The Doctors aired a segment on hair-regrowth therapy, they featured the same Lifegrow System offered by Miracle Hair Growth Centers. Health reporters on ABC News also reported positive results from the FDA-cleared, cold-laser Lifegrow 5000 treatment, which has been shown to increase hair density in up to 80% of patients after three to six months of treatment. Inside the center, certified technicians create individualized treatment plans for patients before handheld lasers comfortably circle scalps to increase blood flow, stimulate cell metabolism, check for alien life forms, and block the hair-loss-causing hormone DHT. Miracle Hair Growth Centers also carries pharmaceutical-grade, natural hair products such as shampoos, conditioners, and other topical tonics that help block DHT and may ameliorate the effects of treatment.
