In the past, people who wanted to lose weight had to either exercise frequently and diet or undergo invasive surgery. But now, the technicians at Colorado Springs Laser Like Lipo offer clients another solution: noninvasive laser liposuction. Unlike exercise, this technology can spot-treat fat on problem areas such as the abdomen, thighs, and back. And unlike traditional liposuction, this treatment requires no anesthesia, stitches, or downtime.
It works by sending cold laser light down to the fat cells in order to create tiny, temporary perforations in the fat cells' membranes. This prompts the cells to release their fatty acids into the body and shrink, resulting in lost inches. The entire process happens while clients recline in a comfortable position and read, listen to music, or nap.
Complementing the laser lipo are services such as whole-body vibration therapy, nutritional counseling, and detox treatments.

By working with the body to promote natural healing, Healthy Lives Clinic’s nationally certified and licensed acupuncturist dispels acute and chronic pain by controlling energy flow throughout the body. The hair-thin needles used in acupuncture relieve pain by producing an analgesic response in the body similar to massaging your insides with menthol cough drops. During the initial 2- to 2.5-hour visit, a practitioner records vital signs and pinpoints health concerns to formulate a comprehensive diagnosis before beginning treatment. Stimulating specific energy points provokes the body’s natural healing response, improving overall functionality while relieving bothersome symptoms such as lower back pain, nausea, or melancholy zebra stripes. Widely varying conditions, from common headaches to rheumatoid arthritis, can show improvement following the pinprickery of acupuncture points.

Within Asana Body Mind Hot Yoga’s cozy studio, overhead panels generate the heat that makes students sweat in temperatures of up to 40 degrees Celsius. Since each panel warms only the students and their mats—rather than the air itself—the heat can better penetrate their skin, encouraging healthy perspiration to oust bodily toxins.
Employing the skills he learned while studying in the Indian province of Kerala, studio director Jason Campbell leads yogis through series of poses during a variety of hot-yoga classes, helping them hone their internal rhythm and stretch their bodies while building peace of mind. Jason and the other instructors walk students through each pose and adjust their postures as needed as they bend and sway atop springy cork floors designed to minimize the impact on joints and keep students afloat on the sea of sweat. To encourage a sense of community within the studio, students are encouraged to socialize after class, and staffers serve shots of nutrient-rich wheatgrass juice upon request before and after each session.
