Formerly a med spa, Soluna MD shifted gears in 2008 to focus more on the “med” aspect of the med spa, eschewing treatments whose job was only to pamper in favor of treatments that produced visible results, such as sclerotherapy, Botox, IPL facials, and chemical peels. But instead of letting its new medical services turn the office into a cold, clinical place, Soluna MD retained much of its med-spa comforts and ambiance. Patients relax atop padded massage beds during such treatments as SolunaSculpt SmartLipo Ultra, which permanently removes fat cells with a combination of ultrasound waves, lasers, and tiny incisions.
Before any treatment, patients can grab complimentary coffee and the occasional cake and cookies. They can also take advantage of consultations with cosmetic surgeon John W. Chang to learn more about Soluna MD's services or to discuss the advantages of adding a third ear to the elbow.
Everyone from certified Olympic weightlifting coaches to retired police officers is on the impressive staff of trainers at Broward CrossFit. That diversity of backgrounds fits in with CrossFit's overall goal for its fitness program, in which clients transform their bodies and lifestyles using an all-encompassing fitness and conditioning program that skews away from the boring or traditional. On a tour of the facility, newcomers may notice that the studio is free of treadmills and inflatable muscle suits. In an introductory on-ramp class, students will get introduced to the rigors of CrossFit. After getting familiar with the techniques of high-intensity interval training, students will join the community of like-minded athletes for regular classes, where they can build lean muscle and strength using kettlebells, weightlifting, gymnastics, and running.
Using non-invasive treatments ranging from -200 to -300 degrees Fahrenheit, the team at Broward Cryotherapy aim to help their clients recover more quickly from injuries or surgery and reduce pain. The body is exposed to freezing temperatures for up to three minutes, and sessions can burn 600-800 calories and lead to increased adrenaline and endorphins while at the same time boosting the immune system and blood circulation. The dry air used in the cryotherapy chamber can reduce muscle temperatures without compromising the skin, and keeps muscles cold even after skin returns to its normal temperature. Additional positive effects of treatments may include decreased soreness, fatigue, or pain from arthritis, as well as tighter and healthier skin.
