For the past 15 years, Dr. Scott McDoniel has been helping people lose weight by using more than just dieting. As a bariatric specialist, he also focuses on his patients' metabolic profiles and lifestyles to help them shed unwanted pounds. His full repertoire is put on display at South Denver Wellness, where he and his staff orchestrate personalized weight-loss programs. In addition to those services, the staff conducts testing to see which foods patients are allergic to, which foods they're intolerant to, and which foods are their spirit foods.
At Slim Ambition, technicians sculpt clients’ figures using cold-laser technology. The instrument works to break down and convert fat stores in trouble spots into circulating fatty acids, which are burned off in exercise afterward. The laser requires no downtown and achieves its goal without subjecting clients to needles or pain.
Cashmere Salon and Day Spa refers to its clients as the Cashmere family, a fitting pseudonym both because of the facility's welcoming atmosphere and because the beauty haven is arguably large enough to actually be a second home. From within a spacious interior, staff members perform almost every traditional beautifying service known to the industry. In addition to a selection of essential hair, nail, and skin services, the seemingly unending menu includes specialized treatments such as extensions, keratin treatments, brow tinting, and individual lash extensions, as well as more long-term fixes such as laser hair removal and nonsurgical face-lifts. The spa even offers injectables such as Dysport, Botox, and Juvéderm for those who want to turn back the hands of time instead of trying to slow them down with a secret handshake.
Chiropractic doctors and massage therapists team up at this clinic to relieve chronic aches and address wellness. As specialists in back and neck pain, they can assist patients suffering from recent auto accidents or sports injuries. Traditional physical therapy helps clients through the healing process, while futuristic technologies such as electronic muscle stimulation and interferential electrotherapy tone or treat muscles with targeted impulses. The staff also encourages inner health with nutritional counseling, helping patients discover which foods may help them overcome illnesses and which are actually made out of wax.
Hair guru Christopher Kellams founded The Loft Hair Studio after graduating from Dynamics Hair Academy and training at Dallas’s Tony and Guy Academy. Kellams has stratified his team of stylists into four experience levels, keeping each up to date on modern haircare techniques through continuing-education classes. Stylists tailor hairdos to suit clients' face shape, their hair texture, and the size of the sombrero they refuse to remove. During an appointment, clients are free to sip complimentary glasses of wine and other beverages.
A common sight at boot camp is a red-faced instructor shouting intimidating commands to participants straining with pain. At Davis Training, the trainers aim to erase this stereotype by creating an encouraging and supportive environment in which they never force their members to do military-style drills. Each session is geared toward virtually any fitness level and is different from the previous, and this variety helps foster full-body conditioning instead of just building muscles in the arms, legs, or toes.
