ThinFast MD's team of weight-loss specialists—including physicians, nurses, and dietitians—works together to design custom programs for patients of all sizes and ages. With focuses ranging from appetite suppressants to diabetes and nutrition counseling, they help regulate the body's intake of food and spotlight the healthiest choices for each patient's body. They also work with the Optifast meal-replacement program, which kick-starts weight loss with 16 weeks of nutritious meals, custom transition diets, and regular labs and monitoring as needed. Every patient receives a complimentary initial consultation so that the doctors can divine realistic goals. At the root of those goals is the recognition that the best reason to adopt a healthy diet and start exercising is not simply to lose weight or make a lazy pet jealous, but because it feels good and develops a sense of overall well-being.
Red Barn Golf Course's nine-hole, executive layout stretches across 2,120 yards of scenic, player-friendly terrain. The course promotes short game improvement with a preponderance of par-threes, while two holes that exceed 300 yards in length allow drivers and three-woods to doff their sequined headcovers for at least one heroic drive. Nineteen sand traps loom on the edges of the course's fairways and greens, adding drama to linksmen's orb-blasting expedition. The grounds also encompass a pro shop, putting green, short game area, and a full-length driving range, where guests will likely encounter PGA Instructor Marianne Floberg Kaiser, who roams the grounds, imparting golf wisdom in lessons and burying untold treasures throughout the course's bunkers.
At Blackman Family Chiropractic, doctor of chiropractic Trina Blackman and her team of wellness experts strive to optimize bodily functions and battle subluxation, the pressure or irritation of spinal nerves caused by bones shifting out of alignment. In the one-hour massage, skilled hands apply direct pressure to muscular tissue to coax out stress and tension. Next the doctor uses manual techniques and specialized equipment to examine the spine and check for areas of unruly vertebral conga-lining. Alternatively, the 90-minute wellness visit ups the analysis ante by adding an examination of the nervous system, which might include a scan performed on the surface of the spinal area to measure electrical impulses and corresponding nerve function. Depending on a patient's age and situation, spinal x-rays may be taken to illuminate the position of the spinal bones and rule out the possibility of lead feet, before an adjustment begins the process of cajoling spinal bones back into proper alignment. The treatment rooms' brightly colored walls, comfortable massage tables, and vibrant artwork invite relaxation and bodily harmony.
