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.
The friendly professionals at Beverly Hills Health Center dedicate themselves to promoting overall well-being in clients through an array of health-bolstering services. Colon-hydrotherapy sessions aim to nix impacted waste, with benefits that include combating bad breath, tempering indigestion, and relieving headaches. After the treatments, which average about 45 minutes, clients tend to feel less fatigued, move more freely, and break dance more convincingly. Infrared-sauna treatments are available to supplement the hydrotherapy, enveloping the body in rays that penetrate the skin with up to 1.5 inches of depth. The saunas release toxins through the skin, thereby cleansing the system and buoying whole-body health. Detoxifying foot spas have much the same effect, drawing toxins through the feet, and the staff's trained nutritionist can help prevent toxins from entering the body in the first place. Additionally, Zerona treatments amplify health by eliminating adipose fatty tissue without surgery or wounds.
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.
A member of the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology, the founder of Core Natural Health Center, Arturo Mesquite, PhD, and his staff of clinical nutritionists and Chinese-medicine practitioners focus on improving clients’ energy and emotional well-being through nutrition-counseling services and treatments. Dr. Arturo analyzes a number of bodily factors, including typical food intake, medical history, and the ability to walk a high wire while solving differential equations, to draft a personalized diet that works to improve health from within; meanwhile, a self-discovery program encourages the elimination of mental stresses and inhibitions.
At Body Wrap LA, the details are in the name. That's because the staffers at this body-wrap salon focus purely on its eponymous service, making sure that what they do, they do well. The interior space buzzes with music and the scents of aromatherapy as infrared body wraps swaddle customers for 50-minute sessions. During the treatment, customers lie in cocoons while blissfully awaiting the arrival of new wings. Because a watched wing never boils, flat-screen televisions and free wireless Internet keep minds entertained as bodies transform into svelte versions of their former selves.
