When Dr. Watson founded Vivify Medical, he wanted to create a clinic that used preventative methods to enhance its clients’ quality of life rather than waiting to treat symptoms once they become sick. Today, his staff keeps this motto in mind while administering physician-grade services, such as a variety of weight-loss-management programs, addiction-related treatments, and bio-identical hormone therapy that aims to slow signs of aging. In addition to medical services, the clinic assuages skin with aesthetic treatments including microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
The walls of an old, repurposed church reverberate with the sounds of joyful singing, strumming guitars, rhythmic tap shoes, theatrical monologues, and whirring pottery wheels. As part of a nonprofit organization, ACPPA Community Art Center's instructors kindle sparks of creativity in the community through youth and adult programs in studio and performing arts, fitness, and dance. A jam-packed calendar keeps families busy with art exhibitions, Mommy and Me pottery-painting classes, and community mural projects bring that residents together to beautify local spaces or paint over typos on the town's welcome sign.
Bagelicious's 20 varieties of dough wheels increase their edible utility by teaming up with 12 tasty gourmet cream cheeses and keeping an arsenal of pastries and lunchtime sandwiches close by. Silky sheets of vanilla-walnut-raisin and peach cream cheese ($7.25/lb.) blanket soft apple-cinnamon or whole-wheat bagel beds ($0.85/1, $4.15/6, or $8/13), offering taste buds a nutritious place to sleep. The bagel sandwich's two eggs and bacon ($3.50) sizzle melodiously, laying a beat for synchronized eating, and pizza trimmings tango atop midday bagels ($4.85). Meanwhile, mischievous apple fritters ($2.20) and muffins ($2.05) let tongues frolic through meadows of sweet flavor while they hot-wire the jaw and cruise away.
When she was a host of Philadelphia morning news program “Eye Opener,” Marlie Hall consumed her fair share of coffee, donuts, and other breakfast goodies. Between her love for food, her job, and her lifestyle though, she didn’t think she could ever drop the weight she had put on from those treats. But through her efforts, she surprised herself—and the staff of the weight loss clinic—by losing 21 pounds. In her video testimony, she also attributes much of her success to her program’s herbal supplements, which she says curbed her appetite and filled her with energy.
Marlie’s journey is much like other success stories shared by Soza Clinic clients who have chosen its medically supervised weight loss programs. Based on client needs, a program may include nutritional counseling, personal training, and psychological or psychiatric counseling. Clients may also benefit from vitamin B12 injections or other products that can help boost energy and increase metabolism. Along with specific programs, the clinic also offers skin-tightening and body-contouring treatments that use radio frequency energy to stimulate lymphatic drainage and shrink fat cells.
