Holistic Fitness aims to cleanse the body inside and out, employing staff members whose talents stretch as wide as their tallest client's arms. Three certified colon hydrotherapists, three massage therapists, and a doctor of chiropractic all call the holistic center home and offer services that complement one another. For example, Dr. Anne Roulo often recommends her chiropractic patients combine adjustments with colon hydrotherapy, which can increase energy levels and wash away toxic material.
Dr. Tobin Lingafelter treats back and neck pain with a strategic combination of chiropractic care and detoxification services. With the Solo dome system, clients can detoxify and be relieved from pain using safe, far-infrared heat. Radiant heat penetrates the skin during each 30-minute session, leaving clients with a natural warmth akin to sunbathing or being under a pile of polar bears.
Xenon International Academy's accredited beauty-school curriculum teaches aesthetician aspirants to administer mani-pedis, haircuts, and other pampering services under the watchful eye of licensed and experienced instructors. Customers opting for the mani-pedi will plop into padded seats before extremities technicians direct their focus to prettifying digits of all sizes and decimal points. Skilled keratin crafters will tend to hand parts with expert care during luxurious spa manicures, before sprucing backup fingers with soothing spa pedicures. Those who choose today's second option will also receive a haircut, shampoo, and style under the deft hands of a studious hairdresser. Trained sculptors of scalp whiskers use high-quality products from Peel's Salon Services as they trim, wash, and style manes in 30–45 minutes, the same time it takes to finish a game of full-contact hopscotch.
The experienced staff at Beautiful Body Laser understand that starting a weight-loss regimen can feel about as inspiring as alphabetizing your receipts. To help, they tailored three separate programs geared toward motivating clients while providing visible results. A body-detoxification program aims to quickly cleanse the body, leaving a blank slate to inspire continued healthy eating and fitness. Also offered is a doctor-designed weight loss program. Finally, lipo-laser systems such as Erchonia nudge the body into naturally flushing out fat in hard-to-shrink places, such as the lower belly and love handles.
Stepping into the lobby of Beautiful Body Laser seems more like dropping by the home of a hip friend than a professional med spa. Modern art hangs above a black leather couch, while a flat-screen TV beams light over to a potted tree, which photosynthesizes it.
St. Louis Lipo Laser eschews the space-age aesthetic one might expect from a laser body-sculpting center; if anything, the clinic's unassuming red-brick storefront invokes the charm of a neighborhood medical practice. This same charm pervades the center's treatment rooms, where skilled physicians and technicians welcome their patients with old-fashioned kindness as they call upon noninvasive lipo-laser technology in lieu of traditional liposuction to help combat excess pounds. Lipo-laser treatments can shrink fat cells around the hips, arms, thighs, and other areas without inflicting the incisions that more invasive fat-removal procedures require. After laser sessions coupled with body-vibration treatments, patients may see increased flexibility and other benefits similar to those of traditional exercise, and they can immediately resume such regular activities as walking down stairs and climbing up elevator cables.
