Losing weight isn't as simple as counting calories. It requires a coordinated effort that may end up integrating everything from alternative medicine and personal training to nutritional guidance and hormone therapy. At Your Ultimate Nutrition and Wellness, the on-staff physicians recognize the importance of a multifaceted approach, so they meet with patients to design personalized programs that are tailored to account for each individual's needs, goals, and least favorite vitamin. With the help of continued exercise, a well-regulated diet, and medical guidance and support, these patients can learn to begin leading healthier lifestyles, which may facilitate weight loss, increased energy levels, and an improved sense of overall wellbeing.
Desiree has a passion for yoga. She's such a fan of the practice, in fact, that she became a yoga teacher herself, and continues to expand on her education every year. She shares that enthusiasm at Twisted Bliss Studio—opened with her sister Brynja, also a yoga practitioner—where she and her fellow instructors lead classes in a variety of yoga styles. Yang vinyasa, for example, sets guided arm balances and inversions to upbeat music, while yin yoga focuses on lengthening and contracting muscles. Some sessions are also heated to temperatures of up to 105 degrees Fahrenheit—the heat encourages deeper stretches and triggers detoxifying sweats.
Specializing in cosmetic surgery and aesthetic medicine, Dr. Kristine Brecht beautifies clients with a vast repertoire of sculpting treatments. Dr. Brecht reshapes bodies with various liposuction and cellulite-reduction techniques that are less invasive than surgery requiring general anesthesia or full-body transplants. She also molds faces with injectable dermal fillers and muscle relaxers, including Botox and Restylane, platelet-rich plasma face-lifts, and procedures that transfer fat from other body parts into the face.
At four locations spread through the western states, the experts of Hot Mama Body Sculpting make dreams come true?as long as those dreams entail a slimmer figure and a more refined image.

Hot Mama Body Sculpting's staff supplements all treatments with nutritional, fitness, and lifestyle advice to help clients sustain results and live well.
The team at Sonic Thin Body Sculpting focuses on three non-surgical cosmetic specialties. Ultrasound cavitation and lipo laser treatments, while similar, use different methods to shrink fatty tissue and tighten skin, replacing tired silhouettes with thinner waistlines. Then there's radiofrequency facials. These, too, seek to add firmness to aging contours, and according to the Sonic experts require no invasiveness or downtime.
