LabTest MD’s team screens patients for allergies, STDs, paternity status, and even steroid use—overall, it offers more than 2,000 medical tests. A CLIA-certified lab processes each one and typically releases the results in 72 hours or less. As at a doctor’s office, test results are confidential; however, unlike at a doctor’s office, patients have complete control over which tests they undergo.
Like a gym, Meant Spa & Lounge wants to help clients slim down. But unlike a gym, which is full of clattering machines, shouting trainers, and people hiding inside lockers, Meant takes a more gentle, laid-back approach to weight loss. Physician-supervised staff administer PhotoSlim Lipo treatments, which rely on a FDA-approved noninvasive red light to shrink fat cells and combat cellulite, lie back and relax while a technician holds the red light over problem areas. Clients can even sip gourmet tea to help them unwind before each treatment. The treatments themselves are non-invasive, and no downtime is required.
When it's not slimming bodies, Meant's high-intensity red light provides nonsurgical face lifts. It boosts collagen production and tightens skin, resulting in fewer wrinkles and slimmer jaw lines and necks.
When she's coaching clients on adopting healthier diets, Antoinette Ouattara relies not only on handouts, but also on field trips. The holistic nutritionist visits groceries and farmers' markets with her pupils to better illustrate how to find recommended foods. This approach facilitates changes in lifestyle to match newfound knowledge of nutrition, helping people feel comfortable while examining food labels.
Antoinette tries to be similarly comprehensive in scope with her other services. She arranges group weight-loss sessions to combat emotional overeating, detox cleanses, and plans that combine personal training with diet programs. Her methods emphasize support through coaching sessions, and she provides recipes for appetizing, wholesome meals.
At InShapeMD, doctors shepherd clients through wellness programs designed to help them feel younger and increase their energy. Exams and lab work provide the medical team with baseline data at the start of the signature Count Down Diet?a guided, one-on-one support and nutrition regimen that can be supplemented with injections of vitamin B12, lipotropics, or big-band music, all of which are designed to boost energy. Hormone-replacement programs for both women and men aim to restore focus, wellness, and libido by adding hormone-replacement for testosterone injections, creams, and troches.
The trained medical staff at NexSlim Town Center approach weight loss from a clinical perspective. That begins with a body-composition analysis using a high-tech machine that not only measures weight, but also discerns how much of that weight is lean body mass, skeletal mass, and body fat—as well as clients' BMI. Combined with bloodwork, the doctor or nurse practitioner can then asses where a client is at physically, and create a personalized meal plan along with nutritional counseling and supplements as needed.
The staff at Atlanta Massage Retreat helps keep bodies and minds happy??and stress at bay??with a diverse menu of therapeutic bodywork techniques. Licensed massage therapists can relax muscles and surrounding fascia with flowing Swedish strokes or administer deep-tissue pressure to address aches. But massage and reflexology are only the start. Comprehensive medical notes are taken to record each client's condition and progress, and home-care exercises are provided to increase strength and mobility. Within a soothing massage boutique marked by french-blue walls and private treatment rooms with plush massage tables, the therapists also perform cranial-sacral therapy help with headaches and sinus pressure.
