  • Rizzo-Ovia Theresa AP Dipl.O.M.
    Rizzo-Ovia, a national board-certified acupuncturist, employs her know-how in traditional Chinese medicine and nutritional counseling to mend patients' minds, bodies, and spirits. She greets new clients with an initial acupuncture consultation, which determines proper treatment based on symptoms, diet, lifestyle, skin condition, and exoskeleton thickness. In sessions ranging between 15 and 45 minutes, Rizzo-Ovia gently peppers her patients with hair-thin needles inserted at selected points along the body's meridians. Like miniature football linebackers, the sterile, disposable needles open the body's blocked energy pathways to facilitate the flow of Qi, blood, and other vital substances.

  • Youthful Images
    Dr. James DeStephens believes that the troubles many have with weight-loss programs aren't physical. They're mental. According to the doctor, most people who plan to lose 50 pounds or more fail completely, and among those who succeed, even fewer keep it off for more than a year. He asserts that this is an issue of motivation: people are often inspired to lose weight by a momentous event such as a high-school reunion or a surprise invitation to compete in the Olympics, but as time passes, that motivation wanes. In order to bridge this schism in the journey to better health, Dr. DeStephens has devised a weight-loss plan that's centered on motivational psychology. When clients first begin the program, they work with the doctor to create a future vision of themselves that will inspire them in moments of doubt. They are also taught how to journal, which ensures that they keep accountability for their actions. In addition to mental maintenance, the program also instills good dietary habits that incorporate fresh, nourishing food from the grocery store instead of frozen meals. By combining such practices, Dr. DeStephens helps clients create a dream that they are willing to fight for. Meanwhile, the doctor combines his knowledge with that of other experts to target aesthetic issues, clearing the skin of everything from unwanted hair and cellulite to wrinkles and age spots. Using combinations of pulsed light and radiofrequency treatments, the staff helps reduce the appearance of sagging jowls by tightening the skin and stimulating collagen. They also non-surgically pare down physiques and pull from a slate of dermal fillers and rolling pins to smooth away wrinkles. During anti-aging services, the doctor combines traditional medicine with newfound treatments, analyzing blood for deficiencies before customizing a medley of hormone treatments to return bodies to their more vigorous selves.

  • Medi-Weight Loss Clinics Gainesville
    The doctors, dietitians, and counselors at Medi-Weightloss Clinic understand that losing weight is a battle fought on two fronts: the physical and the emotional. Periods of stress, compulsive eating, or despair can torpedo the physical benefits of even the most rigorous exercise regimens. For this reason, the physician-supervised weight-loss programs take a five-sided approach. Different tiers incorporate elements of the physical, such as medical exams and exercise regimens, as well as emotional support and ongoing weekly counseling to keep spirits high and let participants vent about the increasing popularity of wine-and-donut-tasting parties throughout the weight-loss journey.
