The doctors, nutrition experts, and healthcare professionals at Healing Is Easy eschew chemicals and quick-fix over-the-counter meds. Instead, they focus on using natural remedies and plant-derived minerals to restore balance to bodily functions. Their treatments often treat irregularities related to blood sugar and digestion. Patients can also learn how to balance their calcium and cholesterol levels with the help of instructional CDs and online correspondence with a physician. The team also hosts live events that include question-and-answer sessions with doctors and educational heath presentations.
Developed in Austria by sports physiologist Dr. Norbert Egger, HYPOXI technology merges moderate aerobic exercise with innovative medical technology. Futuristic-looking capsules surround the cardio machines, providing light vacuum suction and massage compression to augment the flab-busting process. HYPOXI Studio Ballantyne lines its sunlit studio spaces with HYPOXI's contoured capsules, each designed to address stubborn areas of the body. Though the HYPOXI Trainer S120 and L250 both aim to tone thighs, buttocks, hips, and lower abdomens, the L250 is a lower-intensity option ideal for those with high blood pressure or joint problems. The HYPOXI Vacunaut targets cores as joggers don a pressure suit and set their soles atop a treadmill. Requiring no activity, the HYPOXIDermology consists of a specialized suit with 400 pressure chambers that help diminish cellulite and signs of aging. Each body-shaping session lasts about 30 minutes and is ideal for all ages, fitness levels, and time-traveling schedules.
Led by seasoned, passionate trainer Julie Sawyer—whose credentials include being a York County 2011 Sports Hall of Fame inductee and being featured on World Fitness Elite TV—Tuff Girl Bootcamps' classes help ladies attain more toned and svelte physiques. The schedule-friendly 30-minute express workouts kick-start fitness forays more efficiently than clipping jumper cables to your feet as Sawyer leads ladies through moves such as dead lifts, pushups, lunges, and planks. Synced to high-energy music, the exercises call upon equipment including dumbbells, kettlebells, and resistance bands and are readily modified for every fitness level and any preexisting joint conditions. In addition to Sawyer's constant support, the studios' mirrored walls help fitness-seekers maintain proper form while practicing exercises and transitioning into the chorus-line portion of each workout.
