Scottsdale Center for Sight's founder, Dr. Paul M. Petelin, knows eye surgery?he's completed more than 10,000 LASIK surgeries, and is often the one other doctors go to when they're faced with a challenging case in their own practices. With Dr. Petelin at the helm, the center's patients can rest easy, whether they're getting a quick eye exam or going in for a more significant treatment. Dr. Petelin clarifies vision with cataract and lens-implant surgery, and diagnoses and treats glaucoma and age-related retinal diseases through surgery, medication, or laser treatments. As one of the first in the state to perform all-laser LASIK, the center specializes in bladeless LASIK corrective surgery, which is said to result in fewer surgical complications and gives patients more peace of mind.
At Rejuvenation Medical Spa, Dr. Michael J. Depenbusch uses his more than 20 years of experience to guide his technicians and aestheticians as they revitalize clientele with medical-grade products from Latisse, Jane Iredale skincare, and SkinMedica. The facility?s spa treatments, including microdermabrasion and dermaplaning, help reveal a youthful gleam in clients of all ages. Services such as laser treatments, dermal fillers, Allergan Botox, and lip enhancements also do their part, reducing and removing wrinkles so they can return to adding character to poorly pressed pants.
When Ellen Latham developed Orangetheory Fitness, she knew she needed passionate trainers and ample equipment, but her greatest tool would be plain science. Drawing on her background as a degreed physiologist, as well as a personal trainer, TV fitness personality, and exercise columnist, she created a regimen to induce excess post-exercise oxygen consumption, or EPOC for short.
By blasting different muscle groups with intense intervals of exercise before performing fatigue-level strength training with free-weights, Latham’s system inspires the body to keep consuming calories well after the workout has ended in an effort to help muscles recover. Classes last 60-minutes, with any given interval lasting between 10- and 30-minutes. Students rotate between treadmills, suspension harnesses, free-weights, and rowing machines, which strengthen arms and cores by simulating the sensation of rowing through a river of hot glue.
The medical team at Lifeline Internal Medicine incorporates both traditional Western medicine and naturopathic methods to care for patients. They perform services including primary care visits, women's healthcare, and a Coumadin clinic for patients taking blood-thinning medication or whose circulation has been accelerated by watching too many horse races.
Doctor of naturopathic medicine Cori Kennedy specializes in anti-aging and wellness treatments such as bio-identical hormone therapy and HCG weight-loss plans, and she is certified in the use of the Cynosure Elite laser for procedures including hair reduction, skincare, and the treatment of spider veins. Certified laser technician and licensed cosmetologist Amla Dhamdhere uses SkinMedica products to perform customized facials and blot out signs that you've dipped your face in a bucket of sprinkles.
Scrawled across some of Angel Wings Wellness Center’s walls are words such as “Freedom,” “Breathe,” and “Greatness,” which stand out as colorful reminders of the center’s mission: utilize entirely holistic methods to help patients heal, both mentally and physically. Unlike traditional medicine, which uses pharmaceuticals and frozen stethoscopes to shock the body into improving, Angel Wings relies on an all-natural approach to aid patients of all ages. Inside relaxing treatment rooms—lit just well enough to make framed certifications visible—their approach manifests itself through life coaching, meditation, hypnotherapy, and various other services contained under the umbrella of “all-natural” healing. The center also teams up with naturopathic physicians and personal trainers so they can adapt their services to treat a wide variety of ailments.
Naturopathy strictly adheres to a few central principles, including working to prevent maladies as the best form of treatment, employing natural healing agents, and addressing the root of the issue as opposed to the symptoms. At Arizona Natural Medical Center, naturopaths put healing techniques into practice with a spread of holistic treatments. Their treatments span acupuncture, which unblocks energy; hydrotherapy, which helps the immune system using water at varying temperatures; and botanical medicine, which enlists natural herbs and supplements to boost energy and mental clarity, among other issues.
