The technicians at SF Fat Loss endorse exercising as much as anyone, but they've noticed it has one major drawback: it takes a long time. That's why they help expedite the fat-burning process with noninvasive laser-like lipo treatments that use infrared energy. The infrared energy simulates the effects of exercising by opening up fat cells at the hips, thighs, glutes, and mid sections. This causes them to release their fatty acids, water, and glycerol into the body and shrink, resulting in lost inches.
At Vitality Chiropractic Center, Doctor of Chiropractic Lisa Walsh runs her practice with an integrative philosophy, contending that all bodily systems are as tightly interconnected as the pieces of a Kevin Bacon jigsaw puzzle. Specializing in adult and pediatric care, she calls upon her chiropractic education, as well as her studies in human biodynamics at UC?Berkeley, to dispense holistic treatments designed to treat imbalances of the structural, biochemical, and emotional nature.
Elite Laser Lipo supports its clients' weight-loss goals by using noninvasive procedures to help sculpt physiques. Developed by Chromogenex in England, the center's FDA-cleared i-Lipo system targets fat cells with a direct-skin, low-level, red laser light energy, firming skin and shrinking fatty tissue. When coupled with a regular, active exercise regimen and healthful lifestyle choices, these body-contouring treatments can help create svelte silhouettes by smoothing areas along the chin, limbs, or torso. Staff members measure treated areas over the course of multiple appointments, monitoring progress and recording any inch loss. The practice also features a natural wellness clinic, which promotes holistic health by offering treatments intended to restore structural and emotional balance throughout the body.
The many traditions of herbalism and folk remedies collide at the Mission’s Scarlet Sage Herb Company, sourcing quality organic herbs on Valencia Street since 1995. For holistic healing methods outside the parameters of standard Western medicine – think aromatherapy, teas, and homeopathy – or just to brighten a home with flower essences and natural beauty products, this women-run business is a serious go-to. Although bulk herbs are a staple, Scarlet Sage stocks seeds and seedlings during the springs and summer, for the benefit of green-thumb gardeners looking to grow their own solutions. Feminine-leaning and sometimes far-out, Scarlet Sage is also a place for education – beyond the knowledgeable staff, there is an impressive selection of books on using the power of herbs to promote health and wellness.
