Around the shop, curated selections of handmade products stand ready to be inspected and taken home. Tala's also follows fair-trade practices, aiming to benefit the far-flung makers of its clothing and accessories.
The doctors at NKY Weight Loss, a nutrition-based weight-loss facility owned and operated by physicians, help clients slim down with custom weight-loss programs. After listening carefully to each patient’s goals and health histories, doctors create custom nutrition plans that increase protein intake and limit carb intake. They also suggest exercise programs to build fat-fighting muscle without having to bench-press the living room sofa. Additionally, doctors may prescribe appetite suppressants and recommend natural supplements in order to facilitate weight loss.:
Sometimes dieting and exercise just doesn’t get rid of fat, which is why the certified technicians at Laser Bodies of Florence, formerly Lipo Laser of Florence, use noninvasive laser technology to give customers an extra edge when it comes to inch loss. Their lipo lasers shrink fat cells, diminish cellulite, and tighten skin. Each treatment can result in up to 1 inch whittled off chins, upper arms, abdomens, and thighs, and after each lipo laser treatment, a session on the Vibra Pro 5500 full-body-vibration system burns away released fat more effectively than standing on an oscillating sander.
Body by Zerona's staff has performed more than 15,000 successful Zerona procedures, helping clients achieve their ideal figures with the FDA-approved technology. The device’s noninvasive lasers disrupt fat cells’ membranes, causing them to release their contents and shrink. This can result in 3.5 or more lost inches.
Created by busy parents as a solution to part-time childcare, Skidaddles accommodates moms and dads with a safe, secure, anytime center for kids under the age of 12. The warm, enthusiastic, and CPR- and first-aid-certified staff at both locations help turn each visit into a discovery-packed learning experience for kids, complete with special themes that allow tykes to connect to one another without having to sew their socks together. Enrichment classes such as magical music, foreign language, and artsy fartsy camouflage learning behind layers of fun and games, and age-appropriate environments ensure wee ones remain among like-minded cohorts. Additionally, each center's flexible hours—which stretch even later into the evenings on weekends—enable parents to enjoy a date night or attend a seminar to finally learn where babies come from.
