Superfluous curves crumble under the practiced paws of Dr. Michael J. Will and his crew of trained professionals as they accentuate natural beauty with a bounty of advanced cosmetic procedures. Dr. Will smoothes body terrain with six 45-minute Zerona laser treatments, noninvasive procedures that sculpt physiques without requiring downtime. Balmy beams of Zerona laser energy sink through the skin, sending toasty rivers of emulsified fat cells coursing through the bodies' natural detoxification canals and leaving anatomies as smooth and alluring as a dolphin on a dance floor.
At Frederick Foot and Ankle Specialists, board-certified doctors improve the health and function of lower extremities with the industry's latest technologies, procedures, and products. Their arsenal of services covers an expansive range of problems, including fractures of foot and ankle, athletic injuries, skin disorders, and issues related to diabetes.

The certified massage therapists and holistic healers at Om Chakra invite guests to discover deeper mind-body connections inside a sanctuary designed to foster states of sublime serenity. Warm earth tones, zen-like decor, and five private, candlelit treatment rooms envelop guests during multisensory experiential massages or healing reiki sessions, coaxing them to unplug from the synthetic, bustling external world and explore a space within themselves that remains still and calm. This sense of calmness, the staff believes, stems from successful alignment and unblocking of the seven energy channels, or chakras, that run along the spine.
Despite the Mud Dog Run's mud pits and climbing walls, racers usually finish this 5K race. They just don't always finish "alive." That's because in the race's Halloween incarnation, they're not only tackling obstacles, but also fleeing a zombie horde at their heels. Grotesquely made-up creatures stagger along in runner's wakes, excitedly snatching up brains, a.k.a., each runner's health flags hanging at their waists. Finish the race flagless and you're still a winner?but only in the fitness sense. You'll cross the Dead Only finish line and for a week afterward may feel the need to refer to your bed's headboard as your "sleep tombstone." But there's more to this heart-pumping race than just a good time: proceeds go to help build water wells in communities in Ghana.
While working at a pharmaceutical company as an immunochemistry scientist, Dr. Autumn Frandsen had an epiphany: for all the good it did, the focus on medicine and palliative, symptom-focused care ignored the body's ability to heal itself. She went back to school to study holistic and naturopathic medicine, and learned how to treat the underlying causes of a range of maladies. Today, she treats problems and conditions including migraines, chronic pain, and arthritis at Velise Total Health. She addresses them with services as craniosacral therapy, nutritional counseling, and heavy metal detoxification that removes heavy metals from the body.
LaVida Massage believes massages should be available to everyone. They back up this belief not only by offering a wide range of techniques—athletes, mothers-to-be, and office workers alike can find a modality to suit them—but also by making the massage process easy. Each of their massage sessions last 60 minutes: the middle 50 minutes are reserved for the massage itself, and the last five minutes allow time for redressing. The five minutes that precede every service go toward a consultation where clients can discuss individual concerns, such as neck tension from leaning over a computer keyboard or foot soreness from driving their car like the Flintstones.
