Tyler English knows the look of frustration. In his eight years as a fitness professional in Connecticut, he has helped thousands of health-seekers who feel bored or fatigued by solo workouts at big health clubs find a better path. At his gym, he promotes what he calls an ?anti-health-club? environment, enlivening workouts while aiming to quickly whittle fit and healthy bodies through his innovative programs. English, a professional natural bodybuilder and author, leads metabolic-conditioning workouts, which boost the body?s anaerobic and aerobic capacity with interval-based cardio. He also folds in a series of strength sessions that incorporate moves with dumbbells, resistance bands, kettlebells, medicine balls, and medicine balls encased in concrete. Tyler also counts on The Diet Doc's weight-loss program through nutritional guidance.
The word meditation typically calls to mind a feeling of stillness and solitude. Matt DeMichele, however, believes in a shared meditative experience—one that takes place in the muscles as well as the mind. For him, massage is "meditation-in-motion," a way to acknowledge and address the tensions that have restricted one's potential. Since graduating from the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy and earning his certification in therapeutic massage and bodywork, Matt has hoped to build this awareness in others and act as a conduit for their body's healing.
Each appointment at Shadow and Trees Massage Therapy begins with an in-depth evaluation. Matt logs information on his clients' recurring aches to better customize a mix of modalities, often blending elements of Swedish, orthopedic, and myofascial massage. Having studied with Aaron Mattes, founder of the active-isolated-stretching method, Matt also leads muscles through short, specific stretches to boost their range of motion. A combination of his active isolated stretching and massage can help combat the effects of past injuries, encouraging ease of movement without smearing elbow joints with grease.

The trained technicians at West Hartford Pain & Wellness Center help patients slim down and combat cellulite with a variety of treatments. They take advantage of technology such as the Lapex 2000 LipoLaser, which is designed to rid bodies of subdermal stores of glycerol, water, and toxins. Newly smooth-skinned patrons walk from treatment rooms after body-contouring wraps, which may also shrink circumferences. Chatter drifts from rooms where nutritional counselors discuss rules for a healthy diet low in saturated fats and unstated rules at plastic-fruit museums. Following all treatments, weight-loss professionals work closely with each client to design a custom weight-loss program with meal plans, workouts, and supplements based on body type and hormonal imbalances.
Using an unconventional process touted by media outlets such as Fox News, The Sadkhin Complex focuses on helping clients lose excess weight by addressing their hunger at its source. More than 20 years of development have formed the Sadkhin Method, the company's natural, drug-free, and non-invasive approach to weight loss.
At its source, the program blends health coaching and nutritional planning with acupressure-influenced patented chrono-stimulation therapy. Using small chrome spheres placed at specific pressure points behind the client's ears, certified Sadkhin practitioners aim to stimulate the hypothalamus—the part of the brain that controls hunger—which can also help you quit envisioning your best friend as a giant slice of pie.
To help clients extend the benefits of this treatment for the long term, the specialists also prescribe an eating plan based on natural foods, which helps synchronize organ function and balance internal systems.
