Certified ophthalmologist Dr. Mark J. Benjamin uses Toyos Optimum intense-pulsed-light therapy to help alleviate swelling, redness, and pain caused by dry eyes. After determining whether a client is eligible for treatment, the doctor applies a cool gel onto faces to create a smooth, speed-bump-free path for a flash lamp. Concentrated energy emanating from the lamp travels into lower eyelids to seek out clogged Meibomian glands, the organs responsible for producing oils that prevent tears from evaporating. Like a talented diplomat, the light helps negotiate a treaty with inflamed blood vessels inside the glands, allowing the jammed oils to liquefy and return to their duty hydrating ocular residences. Sessions are spaced one month apart, giving eyes time to heal and practice new blinking rhythms.
Zabrosky Chiropractic's diligent Doctor of Chiropractic Adriana Zabrosky and accommodating therapists evict troublesome aches and pains with individualized care and thorough consultations. Prior to the massage, the certified professionals capture x-rays if necessary, shedding light on bone weaknesses, structural issues, and chakra discoloration. A full exam ameliorates misalignment dilemmas, revealing areas where undue physical pressure affects the bones or sculpts muscles into curlicues. Chiropractic clients choose between two types of massage—deep tissue or Swedish—both of which last an hour. The Swedish massage uses long strokes to stimulate circulation and reduce pain, and the deep-tissue massage realigns connective tissue, making it possible to give the extreme tilt-a-whirl another go.
Dr. Timothy Zelko, a board-certified physician with six years of liposuction-specific experience, oversees the fat-cell-siphoning procedures at ZBodySculpt.

This realization prompted him to seek out alternative forms of fat reduction, and Dr. Zelko now treats his patients with minimally invasive and noninvasive procedures that require little to no downtime, reduced cost, and local anesthesia for fewer complications.
