While everyone can check their weight by stepping on a scale, not everyone loses weight easily or the same way. At Good Life Nutrition, registered nurse and certified health coach Tracey Berry recognizes this, and provides her clients with personalized weight loss plans. Her regimens can incorporate custom meal plans, whole-foods-only cleanses, and noninvasive i-Lipo treatments, which slim body circumferences with low-level lasers, rather than by wearing belts around every body part.
Physical Medicine Clinic's approach emphasizes a team dynamic by combining the expertise of medical doctors, nurse practitioners, physical therapists, and chiropractors to provide clients with a complete roster of services designed to help them improve their health and lose weight. They treat patients who suffer from a wide range of issues from neck pain and balance disorders to hormonal imbalances and osteoarthritis. Appointments begin with a thorough consultation from one of the center’s board-certified physicians, who then prescribes the next steps for treatment. The team's specialties vary and include spinal rehab, laser therapy, and decompression therapy. They also offer services less commonly found at other medical clinics, including yoga, weight-loss management, and free seminars to discuss just how many apples per day keep the doctor away.
At St Louis Hypnosis Clinic, hypnotherapist Brian S. Madrid believes hypnosis can help you achieve your goals. Certified by the American Hypnosis Association, Madrid also uses his bachelor's degree in nursing to assist clients who want to stop smoking, lose weight, or manage pain.

Blue Nile Spa’s colon hydrotherapy cleanses and detoxifies bodily plumbing while promoting healthier digestion and nutrient absorption. During each 30- to 45-minute procedure, technicians douse pipes with 20–35 gallons of purified water supplied by the gentle LIBBE system, freeing bodies from toxins, plaque buildup, and antique bubblegum collections. Sessions conclude with a toast-ready quaff, as patients guzzle an electrolyte-rich tincture to keep cells happily hydrated. At the end of each session, good bacteria move back into their newly renovated real estate, aiding digestion while debating the feasibility of installing a satellite dish.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote healthy weight management, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle toning. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
