If there's one thing every human has in common, it's aging—some just do it less noticeably than others. At Rock Creek Wellness, age-management specialist Dr. Mark Strehlow makes sure birth dates are just numbers. Alongside his partner, Dr. James Dickie, Dr. Strehlow creates custom treatment plans that aim to rejuvenate the body's natural rhythms. The two doctors rely especially on hormone therapy, but also administer lipotropic injections designed to increase energy and speed up weight loss efforts. While the duo of doctors address issues on the inside of the body, the rest of the Rock Creek's staff members focus their energies on sprucing up outer surfaces with laser hair removal, facials, and cosmetic injections.

At Stillpoint Neurofeedback, NeurOptimal technology detects and maps out kinks in the brain waves for better overall well-being. During a neurofeedback session, a trainer first affixes sensors to your head that transfer your brain-wave activity to computerized software. Meanwhile, you'll watch slowly transforming geometric patterns and listen to oft-skipping music—each skip triggers a reset in your brain—that all culminate in relaxation and easing of maladies. Some issues that may be uncovered based on brainwave patterns include depression and anxiety, poor overall wellness or mental acuity, and lacking athletic performance.
Though the emergency room can be a daunting place, The Urgency Room promises a comparable level of care without the stress of a hospital visit. The urgent-care clinic, staffed by board-certified physicians, quickly tends to illnesses and injuries such as broken bones, deep cuts, and everyday sicknesses requiring immediate attention. The staff also tackles standard physicals, drug and alcohol testing, vaccinations, and physical therapy. With a lab, an x-ray machine, and a pharmacy in-house, rarely does a patient need to venture off-site for treatment.
Today's Groupon to Massage Heights makes it easy for anyone to enjoy the soothing benefits of a high-quality, muscle-melting massage performed by a licensed massage therapist. Choose from Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point, maternity, or sports massage. One hour of back-attack bliss can be spent on a Swedish, which uses long, flowing strokes to knead away stress and tension, or its brethren modality, the deep tissue, a similar but more targeted and intense approach. Deactivate localized pockets of pain with the trigger-point massage, or prepare for the girth of birth with a maternity massage to help with prenatal issues such as back pain and the emotional toil of carrying around a hungry, kick-happy alien for nine months.
At Highpoint Family Vision, Dr. Kinsey Honeyman and her staff help patients of all ages protect their vision with extensive optic care and designer eyewear.

The practice has a room devoted to contact-lens styles, and a full lineup of frames from designer brands such as Ray-Ban, Prada, Michael Kors, and Kate Spade encircle custom-made ultralight polycarbonate lenses in progressive bifocal, trifocal, and UV-protection compositions.
