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.
On the battlefield, there's no time to linger in the waiting room or wait in line at the pharmacy. Soldiers need fast and effective treatment in order to get back to helping their fellow fighters. It was in this high-stakes atmosphere that Ross Penny learned the ropes of medicine as a combat medic in the first Gulf War. As the conflict ended, Penny bolstered his skills by earning licenses in massage and neuromuscular therapy and easing pain in patients with soft-tissue injuries through a balance of Western medicine and Eastern healing traditions.
Although the therapist channels his 26 years of diverse experience into a range of bodily treatments, he specializes in the technique of neuromuscular therapy. Steady pressure on focused muscle groups mends six physiological factors linked with pain, which range from poor nutrition to posture problems. As tension melts away, ailments such as lower back pain, TMJ disorder, and chronic moonwalk dancing may begin to ease their agonizing hold on the patient's body.
Therapeutic Touch's team of licensed massage therapists specializes in a wide range of modalities proven to relieve aches and rehabilitate from injuries. The therapists employ these broad disciplines, including deep tissue, Swedish, sports, hot stone, and other forms of massage, to customize sessions around each individual's therapeutic needs. Hot towels and aromatherapy help soothe the senses during treatments, and clients can request two hot stones to induce deeper relaxation or to chuck at noisy birds chirping outside the window. The staff also improves aesthetic wellness with foot treatments, body wraps, waxing services, and a full menu of facials.
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.
Living in the moment can have its downsides, not the least of which is a tattoo that lasts forever. Thankfully, the certified specialists at River City Laser Tattoo Removal Studio have discovered that "forever" isn't always as long as it seems. In sessions that take only a few seconds or a few minutes to complete, specialists blast tattoos with intense laser energy that penetrates deep into skin, breaking up the ink into minuscule particles. The body's immune system does the rest, gradually flushing out the particles and leaving skin the way nature intended it.
Two pairs of hands are better than one. That's the thinking at Hands-On-Healing Massage Therapy and Bodywork, where licensed massage therapists Derek Bhimji and Virginia Lee help rid clients of stress and anxiety. The duo specializes in therapeutic massage and pain management, and even performs a massage designed exclusively for those who suffer from aching muscles caused by workouts. The team has been trained in myofascial release, deep-tissue and sports massage, hot stones, and different bodywork techniques, plus reflexology.
