From offices in the US and Canada, laser techs at International Laser Therapy Centers work to empower people to live more healthfully. Using only the power of low-level lasers, they work to help clients lose weight or quit smoking by aiming the light beams at specific areas throughout. This works to increase endorphin levels to create a sustained calming effect, which may decrease the urge to overeat or smoke due to stress, as well as make it easier to overcome temptation during diets or nicotine detoxes. Staffers also work to give excess weight the boot via noninvasive infrared body wraps, which target deep tissues with thermal heat in the hopes of dissolving the body’s store of fat and marshmallow fluff. Furthermore, a 24-hour support line works in conjunction with in-spa treatments to motivate clients to reach their goals.
At HealthSource Chiropractic, staff members work with clients to develop written individual action plans to treat joint and muscle pain. A tailored treatment can blend attention from chiropractors, massage therapists, and progressive-rehabilitation staff to leverage the diverse benefits of a variety of modalities in the same visit. All staffers are trained to educate clients about chiropractic care's role in overall physical well-being, using a nifty song that helps you remember what the hipbone is connected to—a USB port.
KimberlyAnn Petree started out as a medical assistant working with respected gynecologists in New York, but she couldn't stifle her fascination with health and rehabilitation. To scratch her itch for knowledge, she went back to school, earning her degree in medical massage therapy from New York College of Health Professions. Kimberly trained under an experienced massage and physical therapist as well as a neurologist and orthopedist before opening Integrative Neuromuscular Rehabilitation.
Today, she draws on more than 15 years of experience as she helps professional athletes and postoperative patients heal with massage methods and other therapies such as trigger-point and craniosacral therapy. She also works side by side with other rehabilitation and massage specialists to relieve stress and nurture injured limbs. When she isn't mending muscles, she offers training sessions to help therapists learn how to work with chiropractors instead of challenging them to duels.
Even when the sun is vacationing in Australia for the winter, clients looking for a sun-kissed glow can find satisfaction in one of U-Tan Salon’s UV tanning beds. Here, the staff ensures a safe, even tan by calibrating each session to your skin type. They also tinker with the rays’ intensity based on how long it’s been since you last went tanning, or how much time you spend in front of a computer screen with a tropical island background. Patrons can also enhance their newly bronzed bodies with infrared body wraps and medical weight loss consultations.
