Certified natural health practitioner Tianya Clark has been in the health industry for more than two decades, and draws upon traditional and alternative medical training to best assist her clients at Optimum Health. According to Camisha Jones of Urban Views Weekly, Clark felt more energized and able to play with her children after trying aqua detoxification, and extends that same opportunity to clients via total-body-detox sessions. Patrons relax in a private consultation room or cozy communal area while a footbath ionizes and magnetizes the warm water. The process aims to draw out impurities such as nicotine or heavy metals accumulated from playing the tuba with bare toes.
Clark teaches a three-month detoxification specialist certification program to educate others on the equipment and procedure. She performs other services geared toward tracking down toxins, including techniques such as hair analysis and iridology. The center also features a TENS unit, a device that delivers a small electrical current designed to kill bodily viruses and bacteria.
As moms-to-be enter through Inner Child Imaging's naturally lit atrium, rustling boughs of greenery and a fountain's soothing murmurs immediately set them at ease. The serenity of their surroundings doesn't dwindle as they settle into a plush recliner for their ultrasound imaging appointment, preparing for their first view of their baby. The technicians apply the same training and technology used by OB/GYN practices to conduct a brief sonogram scan—then, on the room's 42-inch viewing screen, a pristine depiction of tiny feet, hands, and features greets mothers and an assembly of up to 10 seated guests and additional standing spectators.
The 3-D sonogram studio preserves the scan's resulting images in one of four packages, ranging from the Boy or Girl? option, which determines the baby's sex with 2-D pictures, to the Complete Story option, which sends moms home with color 3-D images, CDs, DVDs, and a list of their child's celebrity lookalikes.
Board-certified podiatric surgeon Dr. Chris Stewart does more than oversee NovoNail; he?s dedicated his entire career to developing the toenail fungus treatment plans used at the clinic. Dr. Stewart has combined existing treatment methodologies?topical ointments, oral medicines, laser care, and surgical procedures?with his own techniques. Though the number of treatments necessary depends on the severity of each case and length of each talon, Dr. Stewart has mastered the art of unmasking a natural-looking, fungus-free look. He and his team even help clients celebrate once their fungus is gone, with festively-hued pedicures.
