Dawn Michelle Simon](http://gr.pn/GRjH5P), a registered dietician, was tired of looking for grain-free baked goods for her clients with dietary restrictions. Rather than poring over the limited options available in stores, she developed her own line of baked goods, drawing upon organic ingredients to forge loaves and confections free of gluten, grain, and casein—a milk protein. She continually tinkers with new recipes, striving to craft products so that her clients can continue to consume the treats they enjoy or recover blackmail photos from a duck with dietary restrictions. Once off-limits, specially crafted breads such as chocolate-chip loaves and hamburger and hotdog buns arrive grain-free with accompanying batches of cupcakes and muffins.

Specializing in neuro-musculoskeletal rehabilitation—the treatment of injured nerves, muscles, and bones—Dr. Quoc Nguyen and his spine-savvy staff perfect postures and alleviate bodily discomfort with a vast array of hands-on treatments. After discussing concerns and treatment options during the consultation, Dr. Nguyen thoroughly surveys spinal regions, testing reflexes and flexibility while removing marionette strings. Patients may then opt for their choice of treatments, such as a spinal adjustment or soft-tissue manipulation, before soothing muscle miscreants with a relaxing 15-minute hydromassage. Alternately, the neuromuscular massage sends a certified therapist's hands into the body’s deepest contours and subterranean tissue, delivering deliberate strokes to roll out chronic pain due to injuries, repetitive stress, and carrying your car to work that morning.
Centers for Body Enhancement's nurse practitioners aim to boost confidence with weight-loss and nail treatments designed to increase overall wellness. The staff targets stubborn trouble spots with noninvasive Zerona lasers that shrink fat cells. Dietary analysis helps patients achieve a healthier lifestyle, and nail-fungus treatments ensure that patients' feet are as healthy as the rest of them. The center's relationship with physicians, solidified by positioning each location inside a medical office, ensures transformations happen safely, efficiently, and with someone present to define complicated medical terms.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Andres Patron, the staff at Patron Medical harnesses the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water-slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time.
Institute of Health Services's experienced technicians harness the power of high-powered light beams to clear up unsightly skin botherations, including unwanted hair, spider veins, wrinkles, and acne.

MicroLaser peels slough off dead skin cells on the face with the hopes of diminishing the evidence of scars, pigmentation, fine lines, and face-painted reminders to pay utility bills left by roommates.
