Featured on programs such as The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America, Aqualipo’s water-assisted fat-removal system sneaks under skin to steal away lipid collections from designated body geography. Licensed physicians Dr. Jeffrey Caruth and Dr. Mauricio Giraldo photograph, mark, and sketch abstract self-portraits on the client's problem area before applying local anesthetic and cutting a small incision to reach the fat layer. Pulsing water jets then flush out fatty tissue with a sterile fluid, evicting lipids without stressing surrounding muscles, nerves, or other tissues. Unlike traditional liposuction, Aqualipo treatments require no general anesthesia and typically last 30–45 minutes, leaving most patients ready for discharge 15 minutes after completion. Clients can expect faster results and less intense side effects—such as swelling, bruising, and uncontrollably transmitting ham-radio signals—than those caused by conventional liposuction procedures.
Owner Jodi Holtz personally trains all of the staff at The Waxing Studio in a patent-pending, six-step waxing technique that efficiently rids skin of unwanted hair. This crew has performed more than 200,000 depilatory treatments since the studio's founding in 2006, using a custom-made organic wax that leaves neither sticky residue nor glitter deposits behind. They wax nearly any area of men's and women's anatomy during sessions that last only about 15–30 minutes.
Licensed massage therapist Julie ousts stress and exiles tension during her massages, which she customizes to suit each client’s individual needs. Her Swedish and deep-tissue services build on a menu that includes detoxifying body treatments and massages specifically geared toward mothers-to-be, to whom she also shows how to perform gentle massages on infants.
For years, Lorna Lewis was in distress: a diagnosis of fibromyalgia had left her fatigued, in pain, and depressed. Visits with myriad specialists got her nowhere and medications did nothing to aid her. Finally, after much research, she decided to seek out a colon therapist, even though the closest one was nearly two hours away. Six months later, she was on the road to recovery thanks to regular colonics and a diet of fresh juices.
Now, as founder of Tummy Solutions, she puts this—and a subsequent study of colonic health and nutrition—to practice as she strives to aid her patients through holistic means. Leading a staff that includes a massage therapist and a horticulturist, she welcomes patients for services designed to restore them to whole-body wellness including colon hydrotherapy, reiki healing, and meal planning. There's even an art therapist on staff that helps patients use art as a catalyst for emotional healing, with exercises that include drawing, painting, sculpting, and bathrobe bedazzling.
Led by Gary Kirtland, a certified colon hydrotherapist, food-psychology coach, and holistic-health counselor, the crew at Clarksville Colonics aims to detoxify bodies with more than 15 services, including signature colon-hydrotherapy treatments. Five types of cleanses, ranging from those focused on the liver or heavy metals, pair with 7- or 28-day detox plans. To help its clients, including members of the military, shed pesky pounds and pass their weight and tape test, the staff builds weight-loss programs from personalized diet coaching, infrared-sauna sessions, and abdominal wraps.
