Helmed by Doctor of Chiropractic Jason Watson, Active Health & Wellness's staff of massage therapists, chiropractors, and cryotherapists administers a host of holistic solutions to improve health ailments. After founding the practice as Active Chiropractic in 2006, Dr. Watson revised the name to reflect the broader range of services offered. In addition to traditional spinal adjustments, massage therapy, and decompression treatments, the team helps patients manage their weight with physical exams, nutrition advice, and vitamin supplements. The cryotherapy treatments?as featured on The Dr. Oz Show?promote full-body wellness by placing patients in a spacious, open-ceilinged cryotherapy chamber, wherein a frigid mist of nitrogen cools the skin, jump-starting the body's natural healing process and ability to empathize with snowmen.
At Warrior Fit Body Boot Camp, nationally certified trainer Darrin Walton uses metabolic-training techniques to help clients get fit and svelte as quickly as possible. His classes revolve around high-intensity intervals and circuits, which often include kickboxing moves, bodyweight exercises, and battling-rope drills. Many workouts emphasize Tabata training, in which participants rest briefly between intervals to rev up their metabolisms for up to 48 hours. During each class, Darrin exudes enthusiasm and cultivates a supportive vibe among students of all skill levels. He also charts students' body composition to keep them motivated as they watch their fat levels drop, their muscles bulk, and their pecs lay eggs and multiply. A collection of online tools—including a goal tracker, a meal planner, and a nutrition learning center—helps students cultivate healthy habits outside the classroom.

At Shannon VanBlaricom Therapist, the eponymous purveyor combines a slate of three separate therapies in an attempt to relieve pain and ease stress from bodies. Guests begin the roughly 75-minute session by meeting with Shannon to discuss specific ailments and their favorite types of tea cozies. Based on this information, Shannon then begins a customized, one-hour treatment, in which a triumvirate of methods come together: Onsen therapy attempts long-term relief through the remedy of structural imbalances, ortho-bionomy taps into gentle movements and positions to help ease muscle tension and increase flexibility, and craniosacral therapy's mild, hands-on methods aim to soothe the central nervous system. All methods are performed without forceful manipulations or repeated listens of orca whales' daily affirmations.
Gem State Dermatology’s certified epidermal artisan, Dr. Mings, restores frontispieces to grin-inducing glory with a noninvasive microdermabrasion skin-resurfacing treatment. After a free, yet optional, 45-minute cosmetic consultation with amicable aesthetician Caitlin Hutchinson expunges facial filth and burrowing skin gophers during a preprocedure cleansing. Then, the Diamond Tome system gingerly sloughs away sullied epidermal layers and dead skin cells with a diamond-tipped wand, paving the way for new cell growth and rubber-band-grade elasticity. By reducing tegument thickness, the procedure helps to unclog pores brimming with blackheads and loose change, and may also shoo away mild acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. A slathering of moisturizer and sun block completes the treatment, leaving faces hydrated and protected against UV rays.
