Having filmed their own skate, surf, and snowboard movies for years, Matt D’Amico and Jeff Barrett acquired a taste for digital videography. When Matt and Jeff launched Valley Home Movies, they combined their passion for video editing with their knowledge of antiquated and modern video formats. Using high-capacity computers, they transfer every frame from aging formats such as 8mm and VHS onto reliable DVDs and convert old photos and slides to digital files, ensuring prom pictures may be ridiculed by future generations.
The pair also puts their editing skills to good use, laying down beats for accompanying DVD soundtracks and crafting individualized DVD menus. Videography services and sound engineering round out the company’s offerings, though the staff also shoots still photography, repairs computers, and develops websites.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Dean Anderson, DC, the staff at Denver Zerona Lipo Laser harnesses the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water-slides. The noninvasive treatment requires minimal recovery time.
The team at Stillwater Healing Arts Clinic knows that the stressors of everyday life—from the struggle of raising a family to the challenge of bench-pressing a family—can be overwhelming.

The clinic’s approaches to wellness are as varied as its practitioners. Naturopath and licensed acupuncturist Sara Hart uses classical Chinese medicine and five-element acupuncture to promote better organ function and overall wellness. The practice’s three registered massage therapists take a different tact, targeting muscles with various modalities and techniques such as aromatherapy to help ease tension and muscle pain—goals also at the heart of relaxing spa treatments such as hydrotherapy and infrared-sauna therapy. Contemplative psychotherapist Kelly Taylor Russell supports mothers and fathers as they cope with the responsibilities of rearing a newborn, and certified addiction counselor James Hart empowers people to overcome unhealthy relationships with drugs or alcohol. To complement the eclectic services, the staff also assists clients in caring for themselves through classes on topics such as herbal medicine and weight loss.
