When Christine McDannel retired as the the president of San Diego's chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners, she wanted to relax. Naturally, the only course of action available to her was to start the business to provide exactly the brand of relaxation she was after. She founded Eco Chateau Mission Valley, a place designed from the ground up to promote sustainable, environmentally conscious practices that she valued, while still providing good, old-fashioned pampering. Her wide-ranging service selection covers any sort of wellness need, from massages to fresh-pressed juice cleanse to organic facials. The success of the Mission Valley location spurred the opening of a second location,Eco Chateau Sorrento Valley.
The fixtures use power sparingly, emitting a low pleasant light throughout the 27,000 square foot building that automatically switches off after business hours. The walls and floors themselves feature recycled, reclaimed, and energy efficient materials, right down to the bamboo floor boards saved from the dessert bar of a panda buffet. She reflects this commitment to nature in the spa's services by using cruelty-free products, most of which are organic and locally sourced whenever possible.
The specialists, nurses, and program managers at Doctor's Weight Clinic prove to clients that losing weight is never too lofty of a goal through the clinic’s individually tailored weight-loss programs based on each person’s physical health and target weight. After meeting privately with a weight-loss specialist to devise a plan of action, clients embark on the journey to a slimmer silhouette with the help of nutritional supplements, appetite suppressants, and fat-burning injections, which include lipotropic compounds and B vitamins that help stimulate the metabolism. In order to maximize the effectiveness of their plan, clients should follow a well-balanced diet and regularly bench-press a treadmill for exercise.
Dr. Deb Novick, an expert on gluten-free living and chronic illness, tailors each treatment at her chiropractic practice to the individual's specific health needs. To ensure the appropriate treatment, each plan beings with a comprehensive evaluation and physical exam. Dr. Deb believes that each patient should feel empowered to control his or her own health—and as such, she offers opportunities for detailed knowledge through dietary and lifestyle counseling, cooking classes, and other educational resources. Services include chiropractic care, homeopathy, and Bach flower remedies for emotional and spiritual balancing.
Lying still won't help anyone lose weight, unless they're at Body Sculpt San Diego. Here, clients relax as clinicians pass over problem areas with a handheld wand, sending ultrasonic waves or cold lasers beneath the skin's surface. The process is designed to shake up fat cells, encouraging them to release their contents and any spare change they're hoarding in their pockets. The treatment ultimately causes the cells to collapse and shrink, which can also help reduce the appearance of cellulite. Other treatments, such as radio frequency and vibration plate sessions, enhance these effects, and nutritional counseling helps clients keep the weight off.
Throughout his more than 30-year career in the weight-loss industry, Dr. Marcel Brysk has helped a fair share of patients reach their physical goals. But perhaps more impressive than Dr. Brysk’s decades of experience is his never-ending passion for staying up to date on new techniques.
At Fit for Life Wellness Clinic, Dr. Brysk and licensed vocational nurses Ruth and Elle organize weight-loss programs that can be personalized to patients’ needs. Their programs consist of traditional tactics such as nutritional counseling, appetite suppressants, vitamin injections, and quitting your desk job to become a sports mascot.
Relying on modern, medical-grade technology instead of invasive procedures, the technicians at San Diego UltraSlim contour stubborn areas of the body and improve skin tone and texture. During UltraSlim sessions, LED lamps aimed at the torso or limbs bombard fatty tissues with red light therapy, which safely shrinks fat cells and has a slimming effect on the body. Additionally, the technicians perform skin-rejuvenating treatments that boost collagen and elastin production while minimizing the appearance of common blemishes, such as cellulite, wrinkles, and multiple lifelines on each palm.
