Though Garrett Blanton, LMT, CLT's expertise includes modalities such as deep-tissue and relaxation massage, he specializes in myofascial therapy, which treats the connective tissue that ties together all bodily systems. He likens the human body to a sausage: "Things can't move around right if the casing's too tight," he says, not to mention the fact that it bursts when held over a campfire. Garrett?s clients stretch out on a biomat, whose amethyst crystals work to draw out toxins and relieve pain as his nimble fingers work. Placing hot or cold packs on sore spots as needed, he assuages muscles with raw and organic shea or cocoa butter, eschewing perfumes that might lead to allergic reactions or bees attempting to pollenate your bellybutton.
Licensed acupuncture physician John Kotsch hasn't always been healthy. In his 20s, he suffered from digestive issues diagnosed as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. When conventional treatments came up short, he turned to alternative medicine. Inspired by the effectiveness and simplicity of the treatments, John left his career in journalism to pursue the study of acupuncture.
Today, John shares this improvement with others, helping apply acupuncture to the goal of overall wellness, stress release, and vitality. He sees only one client at a time, ensuring he can devote his full attention to their needs and vacation slideshows. In addition to administering acupuncture treatments, he also shares his knowledge of natural medicine so patients can continue their healing regimen.

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.
The signs of weight gain, aging, and heart disease tend to develop gradually, but board-certified internist Dr. James DeStephens and his staff stop them with quickness. Among their many services, they offer VelaShape cellulite-reduction treatments, Juvederm fillers, and a weight-loss program that gets the most out of workouts with a steady dose of vitamin B12 shots and nutritional counseling. They even offer enhanced external-counterpulsation therapy, a technique designed to help boost the flow of blood and stave off cardiovascular maladies without surgery. The therapy works by strapping inflatable cuffs around the patient’s legs and then inflating and deflating the cuffs to increase the flow of blood to the heart more effectively than a visit from three ghosts on Christmas Eve.
