After 33 years of clinical and academic medicine, Dr. Edgar A. Guess Jr. expanded his medical repertoire by exploring alternative and holistic wellness techniques. In 1996, the retired OB/GYN and cancer surgeon founded Beverly Hills Wellness Center, where he and a team of physicians and healthcare providers aim to prevent illness and provide clients with the knowledge and services they need to maintain their health and independence. Dr. Guess is also the president-elect of the National Board for Colon Hydrotherapy, so his knowledge and experience informs the work of the center's International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy?certified therapist, as well.
Besides colon hydrotherapy, the health experts offer acupuncture and Oriental and Chinese herbal medicine. Additionally, the center's detoxifying treatments?which include infrared saunas, deep-tissue massages, and raw-juice cleanses?allow the body to rid itself of impurities that linger from their childhood paste-eating habit. They also offer health screenings, as part of their commitment to promoting early detection and empowering clients to monitor their own health at home.
Renowned physician Dr. Andre Berger and his staff at Rejuvalife Vitality Institute aim to restore vibrancy to world-weary bodies with a blend of modern medical techniques and time-honored holistic therapies. Dr. Berger's repertoire of figure-sculpting procedures coaxes fatty tissues from hips, buttocks, and thighs to leave sleeker silhouettes. The noninvasive or minimally invasive techniques, which include skin-tightening lasers and liposuction, allow Dr. Berger to renegotiate bodily curves without the need for general anesthesia or costly bribes to the bosses of lipid unions. He also helps patients shed pounds with a holistic medicinal approach, combining hormone therapy with nutritional and lifestyle counseling to give patients control over their own fitness destinies.
Visitors to Beneveda's salt room enter with wizened lungs and leave with breath-balloons bursting with praise for the center's practitioners and philosophy of comprehensive medicine. The restorative effects of breathing salinated oxygen were first observed by European salt miners, who noticed a marked improvement in the breathing of their canaries. According to Beneveda, salt-mine air is rich in negative ions, which it says can improve chronic ear, nose, and throat ailments; allergies; and overdrawn positive-ion balances. Three 45-minute sessions in Beneveda's therapeutic microclimate aim to alleviate symptoms of respiratory ailments and the consequences of maintaining a throat-length tar-luge track.
When you first walk into DeLeon Chiropractic Center, Inc., a person might not greet you immediately. But it's not because the staff doesn't value the patient experience?in fact, far from it. Instead, it's because the enthusiastic PR mascot of the company is one CoCo DeLeon, a friendly rescue dog that occasionally waits at the front desk, ready to meet clients just entering from a valet parking lot.
CoCo's human companion is Dr. Jill DeLeon, a licensed chiropractor with years of private-practice experience. She applies her extensive knowledge and state-of-the-art spinal-care equipment?such as advanced patient adjusting tables and in-office x-rays?to tend to the aches and existential pains of patients. Employing a no-wait policy, Dr. DeLeon and her staff promptly address disk alignment, join soreness, and other maladies through massage, chiropractic, and acupuncture.
As a medical student in South Korea, Dr. Benjamin Kang witnessed the healing possibilities of acupuncture and herbal medicine firsthand after they helped his mother recover from a stroke. At Beverly Acupuncture, the PhD-holding practitioner uses the same techniques to help treat pain, headaches, arthritis, and allergies. Dr. Kang also employs alternative health techniques to help tighten the skin of the face and spark weight loss through the strengthening of the digestive system.
