Elite Lab Testing's network of accredited medical reference labs and service centers helps patients take charge of their health and wellness with tests performed at more than 1,700 LabCorp locations across the country. These lab tests—which don't require referrals or doctor visits—cover a lot of ground. For example, with a single blood draw, medical professionals can check for the IgE antibodies that may be causing allergic reactions to insect stings, foods, pollen, mold, and younger siblings. They might spend the rest of the day screening blood-sugar levels, scanning hormone levels and thyroid health, checking for heart attack risks, and lifting the hood on the liver and kidneys. Customers can even order the same tests their health care provider does for routine physicals. Elite Lab Testing also performs drug screens, and offers affordable pricing packages and wellness programs that equip the health-conscious community with useful tools for constructing a healthy lifestyle.
Clients saddle up to the stable of whole-body-vibration trainers at Success Wellness's Szone, stepping onto the machines' vibrating platforms as they initiate thousands of tiny muscle contractions across the body. The technology was originally developed to help astronauts to maintain crucial muscle mass while floating around in microgravity, and it now enjoys popularity among celebrities and athletes as a hassle-free way to augment the effects of regular exercise. Success Wellness's entire facility focuses on the vibration exercise, which can give practitioners results in as little as 10-minute sessions three times a week. Regular practice can increase bone density and muscle mass, and the low-impact nature of the exercise makes it ideal for seniors, those with conditions such as arthritis and rheumatism, or fitness-conscious Fabergé eggs.
