Elite Lab Testing's network of accredited medical reference labs and service centers helps patients take charge of their health and wellness with tests performed at more than 1,700 LabCorp locations across the country. These lab tests—which don't require referrals or doctor visits—cover a lot of ground. For example, with a single blood draw, medical professionals can check for the IgE antibodies that may be causing allergic reactions to insect stings, foods, pollen, mold, and younger siblings. They might spend the rest of the day screening blood-sugar levels, scanning hormone levels and thyroid health, checking for heart attack risks, and lifting the hood on the liver and kidneys. Customers can even order the same tests their health care provider does for routine physicals. Elite Lab Testing also performs drug screens, and offers affordable pricing packages and wellness programs that equip the health-conscious community with useful tools for constructing a healthy lifestyle.

When he expertly plies the overworked muscles of professional clients—including personal trainers and nurses—certified massage therapist Daniel Foote pulls from a succinct menu of massage styles. The long, gliding strokes of a Swedish massage impart nerves and muscles with a sense of relaxation, and its rhythmic tapping shakes stresses out of their spinal hovels. During deep-tissue massages, the experienced therapist works out severe tension and lessens chronic pain collected throughout the body. Combining techniques from both styles, sports massage eases tautness and aches that have settled into muscles and joints from years of athletic activities and attempting to juggle discuses. Additionally, prenatal massages help relieve lower-back pain, headaches, and calf cramps in mothers-to-be, and hot-stone treatments bury muscles beneath an avalanche of therapeutic heat.
Once a smoker with a three-pack-a-day habit, Anne Penman now dedicates her time to helping others kick their smoking habits and conquer weight- and stress-related problems. Anne opened her main Glasgow office nearly 20 years ago; today, her custom style of laser therapy—known as the Anne Penman Method—can be found in more than 30 clinics worldwide. The Ireland native's therapeutic technique is founded on the Thor laser, whose cold, soft beams soak into specific energy points to release endorphins, thus reducing stress and cravings. Paired with motivating one-on-one sessions and a 24-hour support hotline, Anne's laser-therapy program has helped many a patient go smoke-free and overcome the urge to eat every cookbook in sight.
Though trained in a variety of pain-melting strokes, The Spine and Injury Center’s state-certified therapists specialize in the penetrative kneads of deep-tissue massage. The company believes that massages should serve a functional purpose, so the therapists use their keenly trained hands or tentacles to specifically seek out and delve into muscles plagued with chronic pain due to overexertion or medical conditions. To lead the therapists’ hands, The Spine and Injury Center of Fredericksburg allows patients to begin therapeutic massages with an evaluation by a licensed chiropractor to determine what modality and specific areas of focus would best suit the client.
