They customize treatments based on the thickness of fat and its distribution throughout the body. To accommodate clients’ schedules, the technicians offer appointments both in the office and at home with their mobile contouring machine transported on a parade float with a marching band.
Yolo Medical Inc. develops and manufactures noninvasive aesthetic medical equipment for use by certified spas and clinics. The company's namesake Yolo Curve laser combines both visible and infrared laser light to stimulate inch loss, reduce joint pain, and service Troll dolls' belly diamonds. Continuing outside the realm of eyesight, a Digital Pulse Analyzer uses pulse waves to detect early warning signs of cardiovascular disease, and the Whole Body Vibration Platform stimulates rapid-fire muscle contractions to quickly strengthen bodies. Following the completion of any of Yolo Medical Inc.'s treatments, its proprietary Nutraceuticals supplements work to continue the process of weight loss and detoxification.
Madame et Monsieur's non-invasive, FDA-approved ElectroSlim technology helps clients get buff. Electrodes attached to the target area deliver electronic pulses that stimulate more than 1,000 muscle contractions in a single one-hour session.

ElectroSlim can tone specific areas that normal exercise doesn't reach as well as burning away excess amounts of fat, redefining the client's overall body shape.
Shorthand for You Only Live Once Get Healthy, YoloGetHealthy is the brainchild of health and juicing aficionados Christina Olmos and Ryan Pearson.

Within each noncompetitive Curves facility, female fitness seekers are invited to move through a 30-minute circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that are designed to promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. Shunning cumbersome weight stacks, the hydraulic gadgets adapt to each exerciser's body weight and fitness level to complement her individual abilities, subsequently decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. And because traditional lift-and-lower motions tend to create bulky muscles, the machines promote push-and-pull movements to sculpt toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing unsuspecting grapefruit. Experienced trainers are always nearby to help clients manage their machine maneuvering, and a soundtrack of fun, upbeat music includes cues to let women know when it's time to move on to the next station or break for an air viola solo.
