Having filmed their own skate, surf, and snowboard movies for years, Matt D’Amico and Jeff Barrett acquired a taste for digital videography. When Matt and Jeff launched Valley Home Movies, they combined their passion for video editing with their knowledge of antiquated and modern video formats. Using high-capacity computers, they transfer every frame from aging formats such as 8mm and VHS onto reliable DVDs and convert old photos and slides to digital files, ensuring prom pictures may be ridiculed by future generations.
The pair also puts their editing skills to good use, laying down beats for accompanying DVD soundtracks and crafting individualized DVD menus. Videography services and sound engineering round out the company’s offerings, though the staff also shoots still photography, repairs computers, and develops websites.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Dean Anderson, DC, the staff at Denver Zerona Lipo Laser harnesses the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water-slides. The noninvasive treatment requires minimal recovery time.
For hikers, cairns are symbols of safety: the stone markers outline the right path. At Cairn Coaching, a life coach acts in much the same way. Instead of sifting through past experiences like a therapist, the life coach helps clients enjoy new ones—perhaps ones they thought were out of reach. The life coach customizes a plan for each client designed to meet their unique goals. These often involve attending a certain college, transitioning to a new career, or performing better as a leader or athlete.
The Mindful Body’s staff of trained massage therapists and yoga teachers exhibit expertise in holistic practices, such as Ayurvedic medicine, yoga practice, massage, and hydrotherapy. This is the basis of the wide range of bodywork and lifestyle-education sessions offered at the center.

Nutritional counseling sessions give clients custom menus in line with Ayurvedic principles. In keeping with the spirit of inclusivity, the center is equipped with ample wheelchair accessibility and free parking.
Drawing on recent research into brain activity, The Healing Brain's neurofeedback technology monitors brain waves and sends signals to the brain to help it reorganize itself so it can operate more efficiently. Patients are hooked up to sensors, which help detect faulty brain-wave activity as patients look at calming images and listen to soothing music or the sweet whispers of a chatty seashell. By correcting faulty brain-wave activity, the treatment attempts to combat symptoms of dysfunction, addressing such things as mental clarity, emotional control, and anger issues. Suitable for adults and children, the one-hour sessions help patients achieve peak performance and wring the most potential out of their noggins.
