Helmed by a licensed doctor and ably staffed with professional nurses and personal weight-loss counselors, Physicians Weight Loss Centers continues a 33-year-long corporate tradition of helping patients achieve and maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle.

There are many facets to health. That's why Living Tree Center for Healing provides wellness services ranging from chiropractic care and yoga classes to nutritional counseling and lifestyle advice.

People from 40 states and 12 countries have come to Tenpenny Integrative Medical Center for treatment. Though the holistic facility offers a range of traditional and alternative medical services, more than 8,000 patients from across the globe have arrived at its door with the specific goal of experiencing the Tenpenny Sensitivity Reduction Technique—T-SRT—an anti-allergy methodology developed by founder Sherri Tenpenny, DO, in 1997. The technique combines three complementary practices—kinesiology, homeopathy, and acupressure—to evaluate and redirect bodily energy. The treatment requires patients to be in contact with the allergen while the practitioner activates a series of acupressure points on the spine, arms, and legs, and it can provide relief from common irritants such as ragweed, food allergens, and infomercials.
The caring, multidisciplinary staff also provides nonpharmaceutical solutions to family health issues. Pediatrician and homeopathic physician Janet Levatin, MD, keeps kids healthy, and Doctor of Chiropractic Matt Grant helps patients manage their chronic pain. Licensed acupuncturist Linda Corlett treats issues from insomnia to weight gain with traditional and needle-free treatments, and holistic gynecologist Dr. Cindy Fraed keeps women healthy with infusions of bio-identical hormones. The center also features breast thermography, a radiation-free detection system that can identify areas of concern up seven years before the abnormality could be detected by traditional mammography.

Through treatments such as reflexology and elemental aromatherapy, they help clients relax more effectively than squeezing a pillow or screaming into a stress ball.
