As a doctor of Oriental medicine, Lisa Maharajh brings holistic and drug-free therapies to her patients. But in addition to the acupuncture and homeopathic remedies she performs in her private practice, at Trinity Laser Like Lipo, she performs noninvasive slimming treatments. By harnessing the power of LED light and studying her clients' metabolisms, she is able to help them shrink their physiques without surgery or trips through a hot dryer. Sessions on the whole-body-vibration platform bolster downsizing efforts by stimulating muscle contractions and improving lymphatic drainage.
Hailing from Colombia, Dr. Martinez continues his globetrotting when he visits other countries to donate dental care to patients in need. Here at his own practice, his general, surgical, and cosmetic skills spruce up the smiles of adults and children alike. His website's extensive educational resources, such as video lectures delivered by professional toothbrushes, keep patients informed. Digital x-rays, light-assisted cancer screenings, and intraoral cameras keep Dr. Martinez's practice outfitted with the latest technology.
As a mother of two, Dr. Cristen M. Mendoza has a naturally nurturing disposition. That comes in handy when setting patients at ease, a process that's complimented by her thorough explanation of treatments and the office's gently singing whale. Patients enlist her services in simple matters such as cleanings and picking out a toothbrush to more complex treatments, such as veneers, bridges, cavities, and extractions.
For more than 24 years, Dr. Ivan Ramos has helped locals boost their health and confidence with medically designed weight-loss programs and minimally invasive aesthetic procedures. Certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine, the doctor held residencies in internal and critical-care medicine before opening up his private clinic. The clinic's many laser-based aesthetic treatments—ranging from laser liposuction and anti-aging facials to spider-vein treatments and anatomical laser tag—use the Cynosure Affirm laser system, equipped with three levels of pulsed-light energy. Doctor-designed weight-loss programs reflect the staff's dedication: in addition to weekly check-ups and customized nutrition plans, every patient can count on a round-the-clock support system for motivation, advice, and inspirational haiku.
Many people are guilty of putting undue pressure on their bodies, but probably not 405 pounds worth. Doctor of Chiropractic Chad Filimon hoisted that much weight to claim a state weightlifting championship in high school, giving him a first-hand perspective on the body's limitations and the strength to shoulder half the medical partnership of Advanced Chiropractic Associates, Inc. His partner, Doctor of Chiropractic Joseph Ferrantelli, literally wrote the book––two textbooks in fact––on the clinic's preferred method of treatment, Clinical Biomechanics of Posture (CBP), a method that aims to balance areas of pain or injury with mirror-image adjustments and exercises that focus on the alignment of the entire spine. The doctors also specialize in decompression therapy, on-site massage, laser therapy for chronic pain or depressed cats, and auto-accident-injury treatment, for which Dr. Ferrantelli has attended numerous continuing-education seminars.
This annual 5K run winds through Genesis Preparatory School's campus?varied terrain that encompasses hills, pine-covered flatwoods, and, of course, gallons of mud. Racers slog through it, and navigate a sprinkling of obstacles, too, but it's worth it at the finish line. Afterwards, participants can enjoy live music and enough food to ensure that no one has to refuel by running the race backward.
