At Enhance Your Natural Beauty, aestheticians and massage therapists use the latest technology to help clients achieve the look they want without plastic surgery. Owner Denice Elwell, a licensed aesthetician and medical micropigmentologist with 25 years of experience in the medical and dental fields, leads her team in performing noninvasive, FDA-approved anti-aging procedures.

The spa's Asian decor, candlelight and incense, and complimentary hot tea create a warm, welcoming ambiance. To preserve the spa's coveted tranquility, staffers ask that clients silence their cell phones, speak softly, and carry a big rain stick.

Alongside colleague Dr. Jhun Bilbao, Dr. Terrell draws on her wealth of medical knowledge to revivify skin with a wide range of medical-grade aesthetic treatments.

Apex Medical & Wellness's medical doctors, chiropractors, and nurse practitioners work together to treat problems such as fibromyalgia, migraines, and injuries resulting from car accidents.

Michael Steelman, MD, and his staff of certified weight-loss gurus shepherd clients toward healthier lifestyles and slimmer edifices with medical counseling and individualized fat-slaying regimens. During the first of two 45- to 60-minute visits, clients undergo a thorough compilation of examinations, including such greatest hits as blood tests and body-composition analyses to garner an understanding of their body's overall health, muscle-to-fat ratio, and preferred 401(k) investment strategy. Then, after a stint of more physical once-overs on the second visit, a seasoned staffer reviews all test results and develops a safe and effective weight-loss strategy that fits your metabolic needs as snugly as an arthropod in a rug. Clients leave armed with medically sound knowledge and an initial plan to restore their soul sack to healthy poundage without relying on gimmicky methodology, such as quantum leaping into the past or practicing reverse fat-cell psychology.
