An abbreviation of Mind Body Heart, MiBoHe Wellness represents the philosophies of founder Karina Loyo, PhD. Doctor Karina studied the art of working with all three components of personal health; she earned a doctorate in health education and gerontology, is a registered massage therapist, and is also a healthy living and stress reduction expert.
From among the service menu at MiBoHe are treatments that support the wellness center’s eponymous trio. Aromatherapy and warmed sheets help guests quiet their mind during relaxation massage, and meditation and visualization sessions train clients how to access their inner-self and spiritual desires. Private fitness sessions from the staff’s certified personal trainer accommodate athletes, beginners, and retired action figures on their path to increased physical strength.
The staff at Vitalogy Skincare tends to skin's health and appearance across eight dermatology locations. Medical-dermatology services cover conditions such as acne, rosacea, and hair loss; cosmetic dermatology focuses on looks with Botox and Juvéderm injections, as well as laser removal of spider veins and hair. Lasers also resurface skin or guide complexions through photorejuvenation, which diminishes the appearance of sun damage to restore younger, more vibrant looking skin. Vitalogy also tackles skin cancer with Mohs surgery—in which founding doctor Eric Adelman, DO, is a fellowship-trained physician—a precise method that quashes the cancer by carefully removing tissue layer by layer.
Texas Boot Camp Fitness's certified trainers fortify physiques with an ever-shifting compendium of exercises performed in an outdoor setting. Attendees of all fitness levels sprint and jump toward fitness goals, lifting their own body weight when performing pushups, chin-ups, and acts of levitation. Arms hoist weights, resistance bands stretch between partners, and friendly competitions reveal hidden stores of stamina and strength. Pushing beyond pure leadership of boot-camp classes, instructors supplement workouts with nutritional guidance and lifestyle advice. In the interest of safe and easy mirroring, coaches emphasize clean technique rather than speed or the benefits of cloning.
Helmed by two fitness gurus, Georgetown Ultimate Boot Camp whips bodies of all sizes and abilities into peak physical shape. For four heart-pumping weeks, the fitness fanatics put campers through high-intensity interval training that helps melt away flab, speed up sluggish metabolisms, tone muscles, and boost flexibility ahead of Olympic-level Twister matches against Dutch pretzel opponents. A free, detailed nutrition guide helps bodies permanently lose excess inches rather than just stashing them under the bed.
As the name suggests, Anytime Fitness is open all day and all night, seven days a week, 487 days a year. But just because it's open at all hours doesn't mean it surrenders its locker rooms to the dark forces of the night: security is active there around the clock. Besides creating a safe gym atmosphere that fits your life's schedule rather than vice versa, Anytime's hours cuts down on crowds and long lines to use each club's array of cardio equipment, circuit equipment, and free weights.
The technology at Bluebonnet Diagnostic Imaging makes the human body as easy to read as an open book. The venue's sonographers wield Medison scanning technology to peer past the skin, conducting diagnostic tests as well as 3D ultrasound sessions. With the help of a radiologist, they can examine organs such as the kidneys, heart, and liver for medical ailments. The OB-GYN department, meanwhile, rewards expectant mothers with an early look at their babies, filming ultrasound sessions and capturing the infant's likeness in still photographs. These appointments—which won the center the 2012 Austin Birth Award for Best Ultrasound Clinic—also typically determine the child's sex and, if the feet are visible, whether or not it already knows how to moonwalk. Family and friends can accompany moms-to-be for their scan, and a children's play area occupies fidgety youngsters.
