Melt away tensions accumulated from the daily grind with the help of Cara Michele Nether, a trained and licensed needle-whisperer skilled in the relaxation-inducing art of acupuncture. Your visit will include a consultation to discuss your needs and determine the proper course of action before the ancient practice of prickling fleshokeletons into a soothing state of mind commences. An acupuncture treatment helps to rebalance qi and manage the flow of life-giving energy while unblocking obstructions that affect the physical, emotional, and psycho-spiritual state of being. Visitors may experience improved concentration, deep relaxation, increased circulation, and the eradication of a variety of symptoms. Additionally, a follow-up treatment helps maintain the body’s newfound state of balance while promoting overall good vibes.
The board-certified physicians at The Center for Medical Weight Loss develop individualized fitness plans focused on nutrition, physical activity, life style, and medication. Patients begin the quest with a one-on-one consultation with a doctor, discussing their overall health and medication history to devise a weight-loss plan and to make sure their kidneys haven't been stolen. This is followed by a body-composition exam, in which the physician breaks down the percentage of muscle, fat, and water comingling in the human subject and records his or her resting metabolism rate and blood pressure. The preliminary visit concludes with a pair of injections to boost the body's B-12 level and fat-burning ability. The nonsurgical program caters to each patient's metabolism and potential hormonal disorders and sends patients on a path to a slimmer self with minimal rope-climbing burns and a comprehensive weight-loss plan based on the exam's results.
Medical Director Terrance L. Baker isn't afraid of embracing change. In fact, when he started practicing medicine more than 25 years ago, many of the technological instruments he relies on today, including lasers and body-contouring systems, weren't even invented yet. Instead of sticking to what he knew, he and his staff at Sollay Cosmetic Medical & Laser Center quickly adopted and mastered the new technology, opting to provide cutting-edge cosmetic treatments for their patients. The bedrock of their anti-aging services is the laser, which they use to remove unwanted hair, as well as to diminish unsightly veins, cellulite, or skin blemishes. To help clients get even closer to their ideal look, they also offer Botox injections, fillers, microdermabrasions, Neova Renaissance 2 peels, VerlaShape body contouring, E-2 skin rejuvenation, and Bioflex therapy.
It can be hard enough to stick to a new diet when you're preparing your own meals—when you're out at a restaurant, the difficulty increases tenfold. Luckily, Extreme Weight Loss Center offers its clients a 24-hour support hotline, which they can use to have consultants guide them toward responsible meal choices. It also offers menu plans that teach clients what to eat even when they're out at fast-food joints. Unconditional support and smart meal planning are two of the main ways EWLC helps clients shed unwanted pounds.
Additionally, its weight-loss programs encourage members to drop in several times a week for powwows that dole out customized feedback and B-vitamin injections, which may help reduce bloating, stabilize blood-sugar levels, and break down foods. Programs are tailored for women, men, or children, and can include anything from exercising tips to school-lunch suggestions. Those with busier schedules can opt for the at-home program, for which staffers email or fax weekly menus, ship vitamins, and perform weigh-in consultations over the phone or via carrier pigeon.
