For Mario Dube, healthcare starts with an open mind. Unwilling to be bound by the constraints of Western medicine, the acupuncturist and board-certified doctor of Oriental medicine incorporates the techniques of traditional Chinese medicine into therapies designed to treat ailments at their source. Dube's secret lies in viewing the body as a single, interconnected organism, as opposed to a haphazard collection of bones, joints, and bone claws bonded with pieces of gum. This view shapes his acupuncture treatments, which stimulate the body's vital energies with tiny needles and injections of vitamins or herbal extracts. Though acupuncture will continue to be his flagship service for years to come, Dube has recently rolled out other therapies to address vision loss and breast disease.
No two aesthetic aspirations are alike. That?s the view espoused by Dr. Tamara Densmore, the founder and medical director of Revitalization Medical Institute, and her skilled team, who take pride in personalizing and customizing treatments at the RMI Med Spa. Weight-loss programs are created by measuring both current and ideal weight with measurements such as height, weight, body fat percentage, lean muscle mass, and body mass index. After measurements are taken, clients will sit down with Dr. Densmore to review medical history and current lifestyle habits. Then, Dr. Densmore will set clients on a path to a healthier lifestyle and a lean body.
Skin services such as facials and microdermabrasion treat complexions, while Botox and other beautifying injectables eliminate wrinkles. Dr. Densmore is especially passionate about turning back the body?s clock, and?as an advanced fellow with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine?expertly administers such age-defying treatments as IPL, and Fraxel treatments, and masks made of crayons.
