Natural Life Clinic’s duo of holistic healers, Dr. Dan DeReuter and therapist Dawn LaPrad, use their expertise in drug-free naturopathic medicine to nudge the body toward overall wellness. Both operate under the philosophy that the body possesses the ability to heal itself, and the specialists help move along this process by disencumbering blockages in the neural networks, laying out effective nutritional strategies for each individual, and encouraging patients to stop sleeping on top of books.
Dr. DeReuter once performed hundreds of spinal adjustments while on a mercy mission in Honduras, and he carries that same care and focus to his new patients. Meanwhile, Dawn uses her message and reflexology experience to soothe muscle tension.
A former captain in the US Army, Dr. Scott C. Mitchell has a mind for direct, effective action. He circumvents fad diets and gimmicky treatments to help slenderize bodies and stave off health issues with long-standing, scientifically proven weight-loss methods. He and his team combat obesity with personalized treatments plans, incorporating a tailored blend of counseling, exercise, and supplements. Much like the Constitution, each weight-loss regime is not set in stone and is designed to be adjusted and reinterpreted with your progress.
It shouldn’t cost a fortune to erase your regrets. So goes the philosophy of Jerry Manning, the founder of and certified laser specialist at New Image Laser Skin Center. Using a water pistol filled with whiteout and a Q-switched laser with multiple wavelengths, each aimed at a different kind of pigment, Manning helps his patrons fade their unwanted artwork. He also helps cancer survivors to erase the marks of their struggles, providing free removal of radiation tattoos. Alternatively, his lasers can remove the natural marks of aging during fractional-laser skin resurfacing, which boosts collagen production to smooth wrinkles, plump skin, and recreate a youthful glow.
You don’t need a million-dollar ego to train like an elite athlete with today’s Groupon: $35 gets you four classes at D1 Sports Training, an $80 value. The 25,000-square-foot facility, about 20 minutes from downtown Nashville, is the same place where pros such as Peyton Manning and Chris Hope, among others, have pumped iron. We’re not saying that a trip to D1 will make you next year’s first-round draft pick and we’re not saying it will make you a second-round pick either; what we are saying is you can train as if you were.Follow @Groupon_Says on Twitter.
At Pinnacle Physical Medicine and Rehab, Doctor of Chiropractic Ted Showalter has seen several sides of the health industry. Before becoming a chiropractor, he spent eight years as an emergency-room nurse, observing the regular use of conventional medical techniques, such as drugs and surgery. With those observations in mind, he began chiropractic school and began to view the body not as a sum of parts, but as a whole, a self-contained system designed to keep itself healthy.
A chiropractor since 1999, Dr. Showalter has gathered an arsenal of noninvasive procedures designed to rid bodies of pain and keep them functioning at their peaks. Apart from spinal adjustments and massages, he checks the body for toxins and helps curb smoking and other addictions with auriculotherapy.
Woolfson Eye Institute’s founder and medical director Dr. Jonathan Woolfson is a board-certified ophthalmic surgeon who has performed more than 70,000 laser vision-correction procedures. Such clinical experience has helped him earn the trust of other medical professionals; he has performed more than 300 surgeries on his fellow eye doctors and trained and certified more than 100 North American LASIK surgeons. He has also fine-tuned the eyesight of professional athletes, including Ovie Mughelli, Curtis Lofton, and Kroy Biermann of the Atlanta Falcons.
Dr. Woolfson draws upon this extensive experience each time he customizes a laser procedure to his patients’ needs. He and his staff of doctors begin every treatment with in-depth consultations, where they determine the lasers, instruments, and novelty sound effects needed to successfully enhance eyesight. Once they’ve completed their procedures, they also offer eligible patients a Lifetime Assurance Plan, granting them free lifetime access to any fine-tuning surgeries.
