Following the lead of licensed acupuncturists Drs. David and Aimee Slossberg, the staff at Advanced Healthcare eschew symptom-based treatments in favor of a preventive approach that promotes holistic wellness. After greeting each patient with an initial consultation, the chiropractic doctors draw on their comprehensive knowledge of human anatomy to pinpoint issues that arise from playing sports too aggressively or commuting to work via pole vault. They select from a repertoire of techniques headlined by torque release, an innovative treatment that employs gentle adjustments to stabilize the nervous system’s tone. To supplement these chiropractic treatments, the team cares for bodies with multiple massage modalities and detox programs designed to stimulate weight loss and improve general health.
Under the supervision of a board-certified physician, the professional staff at Physician’s Weight Loss Centers helps clients work toward overall wellness while shedding pounds with their six specialized weight-loss programs. After a consultation with a certified staff member, each client is assigned to the program best suited to his or her goals, current health, and willingness to put up with a stack of pancake’s “I miss you!” text messages. Programs can also be augmented with regimens of supplements and vitamins, including the fat-targeting agents of vitamin B12 injections. Not merely satisfied with supplying menu plans, the staff offers behavior-guidance plans, counselors, and medical consultations to ensure clients fully embrace new, healthful behaviors.
