Do you offer your customers any extra perks?
Clients can sign up for our free monthly newsletter filled with educational resources on exercises and stretches they can do to maintain proper body mechanics, increase flexibility, and reduce pain.
The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
Our physical therapy gyms are designed to allow treatment to focus on functional body movement and mechanics. We use free weights, medicine balls, kettlebells, and other equipment that will maximize an individual's freedom of movement through an exercise, rather than gym equipment.
Our massage rooms are set apart from our physical therapy gyms to minimize noise disruption during massage sessions.
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
We started 11 years ago in a garage just doing physical therapy, and have grown into three facilities in San Diego and La Mesa, expanding our services to include massage, personal training, sports-performance training, group classes, and multisport coaching.
Led by Dr. Robert Lajvardi, the medical staffers at Encompass Family and Internal Medicine Group put their collective expertise together to perform cosmetic procedures and tackle pain management and preventative care. Cosmetic procedures offered by the group include chemical peels, laser hair removal, and microdermabrasion. Pain management ameliorates back and joint discomfort, and preventive care involves medically supervised weight-loss treatments, STI screenings, and time travel.
Certified massage therapist Erin Warfield Shaffer expresses her belief in holistic approaches to wellness by treating bodies to a detoxifying combination of hands, herbs, and hydrotherapy. Shaffer's four massages range from hot-stone techniques that melt tension in backs to reflexology methods that manipulate the feet in an effort to relieve pain in the rest of the body. She also cleanses bodies with such detoxification rituals as the acupoint session, a massage-like treatment that causes key points in the body to absorb healthy herbs so that clients don't have to sleep on a pile of herb-crusted halibut. The center also concocts custom facials and peels that nourish the skin with hydrotherapy, botanicals rich in Vitamin C, and other organic ingredients.
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.
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.
