For much of his life, Young Cho watched family members struggle with illness, even as they sought medical care. He decided to research treatments outside the traditional spectrum that might help people manage pain, which led him to Onnetsu, a form of thermal therapy developed in Japan. The methodology combines massage with infrared heat to improve circulation and supplement the body's natural immune system defenses. Cho learned everything he could about it, ultimately bringing his findings to his new business, the US Onnetsu Therapy Center. There, he practices his infrared massages in a soothing, spa-like environment, with colors and music chosen to help clients relax and forget about work, unless they happen to be massage-table salespeople.
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.
Dr. Kendra A. Cole, a specialist in medical dermatology, and her partner, aesthetic physician Dr. Louis D. Cole, help patients enhance their outward appearance with state-of-the-art treatments. Less invasive body-contouring options include VelaShape, Thermage, and Ulthera ultrasound skin tightening, which can result in svelte figures that easily shimmy into packed elevators and tuck behind trees during hide-and-seek.
