Step one: local farmers hand pick organic fruits and vegetables. Step two: they make their way, five pounds at a time, into Juice Crafter's 20-lb. hydraulic press. Step three: it's cold-pressed juice, and you drink it. Operating under the simple motto "live well and be well," Juice Crafters creates healthy, vitamin-rich elixirs designed to give bodies a boost. Powerhouse smoothies carry the nutrients that systems need after a workout without giving stomachs the heavy feeling associated with eating vitamin rocks. Cleanse & Detox juice programs, which last three to eight days, help evict unwanted toxins while helping bolster the immune system, among other positive effects, and made-to-order juices tickle both the taste-buds and the food pyramid.

With the slow hiss of water through machinery, the flat surfaces of the hydraulic press carefully come together with 20 tons of force. Between them, an array of raw fruits and vegetables flatten, yielding every last drop of their nutritious vitamins, minerals, and plant enzymes into a pulpy liquid. The workers of Pure Juice Detox bottle the nutritious ambrosia, pack it up, and send it home with clients, who purge their bodies of toxins with daily regimens of these raw-plant cocktails. The staff packages the juices in ready-to-go three-, five-, and eight-day menus, handily numbering each bottle so customers know which juice is which.

At the helm of Healthy Life Acupuncture Center is Dr. Kimi Gudmundsen, who, besides holding a Ph.D., earned a masters degree in acupuncture and Oriental medicine, and an aesthetician's license. She's able to put her extensive training to good use at the holistic wellness and natural beauty practice, where the treatments run the gamut from healing cold laser therapy to refreshing facials and peels.

Of course, acupuncture is the main specialty here, and Dr. Kimi and her team use the centuries-old technique to help recalibrate internal energy levels and address ailments such as anxiety, pain, and consumption. During the treatment, Dr. Kimi inserts very fine, sterilized needles at precise points, stimulating the body's self-healing mechanisms and redistributing energy flow so that it goes to the areas where it is most needed. The procedure is nearly painless, though some patients may experience a slight tingling sensation, feelings of warmth, or sudden empathy for hedgehogs.

The therapists at Alvardo Acupuncture Clinic know that freely-circulating energy can do more than facilitate wellness—it can also brighten complexions or boost metabolism. The clinic offers other approaches to weight loss, too, such as holistic-diet regimens that address factors that commonly undermine weight-loss efforts—such as stress, gremlins, and insomnia—rather than focusing exclusively on food intake.
