As impressive as the ZunZun hummingbird in Cuba—which flaps its wings up to 200 times per second—the human body is capable of miraculous self-healing, assuming the proper provisions. At ZunZun Therapeutic Care, Doctor of Chiropractic Jason Hurley and staff use time-tested—and drug-free—techniques to rehabilitate injuries and alleviate chronic pain. Following an auto accident or sports-related injury, clients might want to see the chiropractor for manual, flexion, and activator spinal adjustments or visit with the onsite acupuncturist. Licensed massage therapists Mayumi and Odin, meanwhile, handle all sorts of muscular plights through advanced therapeutic massage techniques, including neuromuscular re-education, trigger-point therapy, and cranial-sacral therapy.
The skilled staff—a veritable dream team of medical know-how—shepherds clients toward improved health by designing and leading custom weight-loss, nutrition, and fitness programs. Spread across four locations, the practice tailors comprehensive programs. Doctors, personal trainers, nutritionists, and artists who draw kettlebells onto clients' portraits to make them appear fit pool their disciplines to blast away excess pounds with methods birthed from the mind of science itself. Vitamin and amino-acid injections, ketone strips, appetite suppressants, and supplements are part of the weight loss program. Bio-identical hormones characterize the hormone-therapy program, which seeks to restore bodily balance more effectively than replacing legs with gyroscopes.
Whatever maladies clients are suffering from, the staff at Tampa Bay Bodyworks wants to help its visitors achieve their wellness goals. To do so, therapists specialize in various modalities of massage, ranging from deep tissue for tight muscles to gentle bodywork for relaxation. They also offer therapeutic rehabilitation for clients recovering from injury, zeroing in on muscular and skeletal conditions stemming from auto accidents, sports mishaps, and work-related aches.
Health Coach Donna Miller says her children have always inspired her to better herself, but it wasn't until 2012 that their influence led her to a new career. In December of 2011, her youngest daughter was diagnosed with lymphoma at the age of 19. While helping her daughter battle, and eventually, defeat the disease, Donna began learning how nutrition and holistic lifestyle changes can not only bolster the recovery process, but lead to a healthier life. Her discoveries inspired her to enroll in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and complete her training as a health coach. Through nutritional guidance and life-coaching techniques, she helps her clients restore their bodies' natural balance, improve their mood, and increase their energy without grinding coffee beans into everything they eat.
At Clearwater Laser Fat Loss, the technology can induce visitors to think they're in the future. Cold lasers work to reduce the body's surface area by prompting it to release fat at the cellular level. This procedure is less invasive than liposuction, and unlike gastric bypass or spandex that are 12 sizes too small, results in little discomfort, if any. Fat and cellulite can be flushed from the midsection, arms, thighs, or almost anywhere else on the body. Body sculpting sessions can be supported with whole-body vibration plate sessions and nutritional counseling by a knowledgeable staff member.
The health buffs at Orthomolecular Nutrition and Wellness Center take the fight for wellness to the body’s microscopic frontlines, using vitamins, hormones, and other supplements to restore vim and vigor lost to age or ill health. During one-on-one consultations, they first sniff out deficiencies and imbalances with a variety of blood tests and questionnaires, giving them a clear view of underlying problems. From there, they can advise on protocols that help their clients lose weight, age more gracefully, or improve their steeplechase performance.
