While hormones are famous for being the root cause behind most adolescent anguish, at Progressive Health & Wellness, the team focuses on the medical maladies they can cause. Dr. Prakash K. Bhatia, one of the two doctors that helm the clinic, specializes in bio-identical hormone-replacement therapy, which neutralizes symptoms of hormone imbalance from depression to hair loss and weight gain. The staff can also catalyze slimdowns with alternative methods, including recommending diet and exercise regimens and prescribing appetite suppressants. Additionally, they tend to physiques with primary-care appointments, boost patients' energy levels and immune systems with B12 shots, and offer aesthetic treatments such as wrinkle-smoothing Botox injections, laser hair removal, and chemical peels.
Friendly receptionists, rustic stone walls, and a soothing green palette greet visitors in the lobby of East County Wellness Center, setting the stage for relaxing sessions of therapeutic massage. Within a private room outfitted with an integrated sound system, licensed therapists help patients tackle chronic discomfort without the need for risky shoulder transplants, employing modalities that range from the relaxing strokes of hot stone and Swedish massage to the more targeted treatments of craniosacral and reflexology therapy. Meanwhile, the support staff takes careful note of each client's medical history, physical ailments, and preferences, ensuring a unique, custom experience for each visit.
Dr. Roy J. Robinson helps his patients lose weight with dietary advice and the added boost of supplement injections. He also rids beach bodies and vacationing peaches of unwanted fuzz with laser hair-removal treatments, and diminishes wrinkles with Botox injections.
Clients saddle up to the stable of whole-body-vibration trainers at Success Wellness's Szone, stepping onto the machines' vibrating platforms as they initiate thousands of tiny muscle contractions across the body. The technology was originally developed to help astronauts to maintain crucial muscle mass while floating around in microgravity, and it now enjoys popularity among celebrities and athletes as a hassle-free way to augment the effects of regular exercise. Success Wellness's entire facility focuses on the vibration exercise, which can give practitioners results in as little as 10-minute sessions three times a week. Regular practice can increase bone density and muscle mass, and the low-impact nature of the exercise makes it ideal for seniors, those with conditions such as arthritis and rheumatism, or fitness-conscious Fabergé eggs.
Dr. Jerry Borup and the licensed aesthetic team at 324 Spa rejuvenate physiques with advanced treatments and attentive care. The original standard in vein treatment, sclerotherapy injections collapse unsightly vessels with a flood of organic solution and a careful amount of microscopic dynamite. These quick, gentle sessions last up to 30 minutes and may be used to oust spider veins and facial vessels caused by rosacea. Lines disappear over the course of two to eight weeks, with side effects such as mild aching, itching, and capillary separation anxiety resolving shortly after sessions. Sessions for each leg last about 30 minutes or about as long as it takes to listen to a Frasier script on tape.
