Adding to a résumé that already flaunts more than 100,000 spinal adjustments, Dr. Gregory King presides over Backsmart Chiropractic’s bounty of restorative, pain-alleviating services. Verbal consultations kick off initial visits to the friendly office, and then bone buffs carry on with chiropractic evaluations that include orthopedic and neurological testing, reflex assessments, and muscle interrogation. Next, the exacting gaze of a panoramic x-ray scours sore areas for misaligned vertebrae and other evidence that the client has been sleeping inside a chimney. Two adjustments work to gently realign coiled columns, leading to a revivified immune system and improved posture. Once spinal rods are set straight, a 30-minute massage strives to ease any lingering aches while rendering the body as relaxed as a worm in the rain.
Renata Nall's 19-year journey through the world of aesthetics saw her working alongside plastic surgeons and dermatologists before she split off 4 years ago to open her own Anti-Aging Skin Studio. Since then, Renata has honed a repertoire of treatments to remedy the internal and external effects of aging. Her techniques smooth the skin, extract bodily toxins, and melt down AARP cards into youthful friendship bracelets. Reflective of Renata's medical background, products from PCA Skin dab epidermises with elixirs created under the guidance of physicians.
LabTest MD’s team screens patients for allergies, STDs, paternity status, and even steroid use—overall, it offers more than 2,000 medical tests. A CLIA-certified lab processes each one and typically releases the results in 72 hours or less. As at a doctor’s office, test results are confidential; however, unlike at a doctor’s office, patients have complete control over which tests they undergo.
Featured on programs such as The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America, Aqualipo’s water-assisted fat-removal system sneaks under skin to steal away lipid collections from designated body geography. Licensed physicians Dr. Jeffrey Caruth and Dr. Mauricio Giraldo photograph, mark, and sketch abstract self-portraits on the client's problem area before applying local anesthetic and cutting a small incision to reach the fat layer. Pulsing water jets then flush out fatty tissue with a sterile fluid, evicting lipids without stressing surrounding muscles, nerves, or other tissues. Unlike traditional liposuction, Aqualipo treatments require no general anesthesia and typically last 30–45 minutes, leaving most patients ready for discharge 15 minutes after completion. Clients can expect faster results and less intense side effects—such as swelling, bruising, and uncontrollably transmitting ham-radio signals—than those caused by conventional liposuction procedures.
Majestic Medical Touch Spa owners Jimmy Little and Malea Moore met while attending the International School of Skin, Nailcare & Massage Therapy. Like a mouse that scratches behind an elephant?s ear in exchange for protection, the two decided to join forces, lending their specialized talents to provide clients with a full range of skin and bodycare treatments.
Jimmy, a professional aesthetician, specializes in advanced bodywork techniques and corrective skincare such as advanced custom peels for different skin types. Likewise, as a licensed aesthetician, Malea specializes in corrective skincare and participates in ongoing studies of reflexology and advanced machines. Her treatments are developed to relax, renew, and detoxify the skin.
A division of Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery—run by double-board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Burke Robinson—Visage Skin Care provides less invasive means for facial makeovers. Aesthetician Heather Davis draws on more than 15 years of experience as she treats her clients to skincare services such as exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments, laser hair removal, and chemical peels that soften the appearance of skin damage. Davis also offers high-quality cleansers from SkinCeuticals and Revisions for proper at-home care, as well as mineral makeup that’s gentler on skin than over-the-counter brands or an exfoliation that consists of jogging through a sandstorm.
