Only five Sculptor machines reside in the United States and one of them can be found in Amra Domazet's health studio, Sculptor Body Contouring. Amra, a certified laser technician, travelled to Arizona to be trained on this unique device that noninvasively slims physiques and tightens skin, allowing her clients to beautify their bodies without going under the knife.

Also in Arma's high-tech tool kit are lasers for fighting spider veins, body hair, and unwanted tats, as well IPL facial units and a miniature Hubble telescope.

When Barbara L. Baaden underwent what doctors said was life-altering eye surgery, she drew upon her skills in massage therapy, hypnotherapy, homeopathy, and aromatherapy to ease her discomfort. Now, when she's not applying her medical massage skills to fellow eye surgery patients, she uses those techniques to help heal clients at Body by Baaden. The licensed massage therapist incorporates homeopathic and essential oils into seven varieties of massage, including shiatsu and myofascial styles. She also enriches bodies with skin-soothing aromatherapies and her natural Flawless Facial, whose botanical oils help prevent wrinkles and brighten complexions more effectively than attaching a strobe light to your forehead. Barbara also ministers to inner wellness, stimulating bodies' healing responses during homeopathic sessions and plumbing the subconscious during hypnotherapy sessions that rid patients of addictions and phobias.

After receiving his master's degree from the Traditional Acupuncture Institute, Eric Renaud continued to search for an advanced healing method that could treat chronic pain more effectively. He came across a discipline known as Master Tung's acupuncture and soon committed himself to learning its techniques, which focus on conditions that other healing methods sometimes fail to treat.

Today, Renaud shares his knowledge of Master Tung’s powerful techniques with his clients as well as his fellow acupuncturists—he’s currently working on writing several books with colleague Susan Johnson. When he isn't writing down advice or consulting with his clients to determine the sources of their pain, he uses presterilized and single-use acupuncture needles to treat ailments that range from migraines to infertility. His acupuncture sessions can also treat conditions such as common colds, postoperative pain, and nagging urges to pop inflated balloons.
