Since she was a young girl, Berni Massari has been aware of her instinctive ability to sense illness in other people. She used her gift to assist medical doctors during exploratory surgery, and, after struggling to find a satisfying career path, decided to apply her talents in the field of natural medicine. Massari went on to earn her PhD and become a fellow of the British Institute of Homeopathy. After working in nursing homes, where traditional Western medicine was not meeting all of the residents' needs, she opened her own group of elderly care homes, and witnessed the restorative powers of homeopathy combined with a healthy dose of compassion.
The natural healthcare specialist, author, and weekly radio-show hostess now shares her passion for healing at Integrative Health Associates. Her wellness philosophy incorporates both classical homeopathy?which uses one remedy at a time to treat disease?and time-sensitive preventative methods to diminish conditions such as chronic pain, allergies, anemia, and psoriasis. The caring practitioner even treats pets, including ferrets suffering from diabetes or parrots who develop laryngitis after living with opera singers.
Phoenix Cool Body founder and CEO Dr. Michael Carlton helps patients to shed inches by treating the biological, psychological, and social components of body contouring with Venus Freeze treatments. In addition to helping individuals to lead healthy lifestyles, he uses the Venus Freeze body-contouring system to reduce inches, alleviate stretch marks and cellulite, and tighten slack skin on faces and bodies. Magnetic pulses, along with radio-frequency waves harvested from discotheques, penetrate subsurface tissue as the instrument warms and massages. The combination of invisible energy heats fat cells?which encourages them to shed their contents?and promotes blood flow and collagen production to diminish wrinkles and tighten skin.
The Hippocratic oath?do no harm?defines the work at Ahimsa Medical Center so completely that they named themselves after it. "Ahimsa", which means "do no harm" in Sanskrit, stands as the model for the center and its practitioners, who specialize in naturopathic medicine, chiropractic health, and massage therapy. Each one brings a holistic approach to his or her work, whether administering clinical services such as acupuncture treatments and nutritional management or aesthetic services such as scar therapy, age spot removal, or birth-year reassignment.
The physician-supervised staff at American Photon Lipo Centers, which also serves the Chicago area, offers noninvasive alternatives to liposuction and facelifts. Using BioSlim technology's red light, they can shrink fat cells during BioSculpt treatments or tighten skin during BioLift and BioRejuv treatments. The FDA-approved treatments yield similar results to their surgical equals, and they do so without the threat of scars, downtime, or hospital-room neighbors who lie awake plotting to steal your jello.
At Health Vibes, the staff likes to make patients sweat, literally. The center's two main services, the Photon Genius sauna and the Genie Machine, emit photon and infrared energy to burn calories and remove bodily toxins. The sauna is designed for full-body treatment, whereas the Genie device is designed for spot treatment, such as an arm or a tail. Once patients part ways with their toxins and calories, they can learn how to keep them away by scheduling a supplement counseling session.
The dedicated staff at AZ MedSpa, LLC specializes in Lipo-Light, a treatment in which LED panels are applied to the skin in order to shrink fat cells, leaving clients with slimmer, smoother silhouettes. Consultations are complimentary, which gives you a chance to explore your treatment options before dropping money on smaller pants or smaller mascot costumes. The spa's focused emphasis on a single treatment type means technicians know their stuff inside and out, allowing for safe, efficient, and effective treatment.
