With locations in San Ramon and Lafayette, internationally recognized Itrim helps members lose weight quickly and keep it off by combining healthy meal plans with a specialized exercise center. Unlike other weight-loss programs that stop when clients have reached their goal, Itrim recognizes that most people still need guidance when it comes to maintaining their svelte figures. So their health coaches and staff take the time to provide hands-on support and give members tips for incorporating healthy eating and exercise into their daily routine. By following these tips and the rest of the program, Itrim says members can lose an average of 25 pounds in the first 12 weeks.
The aestheticians at Brow & Beauty Bar have a particularly unique collection of talents. They specialize in threading?an ancient treatment that removes unwanted facial hair using a gentle cotton thread?and excel at applying eyelash extensions and makeup. They also extend their expertise toward comprehensive facials and treatments that smooth, cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize. During henna tattoo applications, they paint bodies in intricate temporary designs, such as ornamental flowers or Sunday crossword puzzles. As the stylists bustle about the airy salon, customers recline on cushy black chairs or await appointments on a sleek red couch.
