Christina Rodriguez graduated from massage school in 2011 and has been soothing muscles in 30-, 60-, and 90-minute increments ever since. Her experience has given her a well-rounded repertoire of massage techniques, including Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massage, as well prenatal massages that can ease the aches and pains of pregnancy and turn swallowed watermelon seeds into babies.
Each Body By Laser clinic pairs cold-laser technology with holistic health practices to help patients lose inches and keep them off. The treatment gets its magic from cold lipolasers, which are designed to gently shrink fat cells by dislodging their contents so that they can be fully discarded through the body's natural metabolic process and series of tiny secondhand stores. Each one-hour treatment series wraps up with a consultation on diet and exercise, along with a quick session atop a whole-body-vibration platform engineered to burn even more calories.
Like art-house films and fish-flavored popsicles, these procedures are not intended for everyone; females who are pregnant or nursing should not undertake the treatment, nor should patients with active forms of cancer. Should any complications be discovered during Body By Laser's initial screening, the company will issue a refund.

The team at BodiLogik Face and Figure Med Spa strives to prove that youthfulness and beauty can be preserved without invasive measures. Medical director Dr. Gail Mallard-Warren—a board-certified obstetrician and gynecologic surgeon with 30 years of experience—leads a staff that eschews surgical tools in favor of detoxifying body wraps and FDA-approved Exilis technology, which vanquishes fat, smoothes wrinkles, and tightens skin. BodiLogik is open Monday–Friday 9 a.m.–5 p.m.
Jeannette Dashjian of Relaxed & Revitalized employs 27 years of experience as a massage therapist and nine years as a certified Pranic healer while striving to restore vitality to bodies and energy. Jeannette customizes each massage session to the patient's specific sources of distress, actuating an acupressure modality to address migraines caused by losing the remote control or focused deep pressure to alleviate chronic muscle pain from constantly lifting couch cushions to search for the remote control. During a Pranic Healing session, the practitioner uses no-touch techniques designed to harmonize and redirect the body's energy flow to promote self-healing. Customers can consult a list of frequently asked questions for more information about physical and energy healing.
Bringing a patient back to good health requires more than analyzing one part of the body—it’s about assessing all parts of their physical, mental, and spiritual health. That’s what Valley Natural Health’s doctor of naturopathic medicine, Sonal Patel, believes and takes a holistic approach to caring for patients. Here, the doctor combines alternative therapies, such as homeopathy, acupuncture, and botanical medicine, with more conventional medicine services found at traditional doctors’ offices, such as pap smears, prostate exams, and vestigial-tail therapy.
