From the corporate store to each franchise location, the staff of Max Muscle Sports Nutrition goes beyond stocking and suggesting supplements to offer health help through a variety of channels. Sales associates in the stores help to discern the optimal body aid to achieve the personal fitness goals of athletes, bodybuilders, and everyday exercisers, be they weight loss, weight gain, muscle gain, toxin-flushing, or intimidating a superhero into ripping a cumbersome collection of old phone books in half.
A certified sports-nutrition specialist can also sit down with clients to chart their age, gender, height, and basal metabolic rate to draft a comprehensive, custom nutrition plan. The written word further fortifies customers' soul cages in Max Sports and Fitness, a monthly magazine brimming with health-supplement advice and fitness tips.
Guided by a team of experienced physicians, Clinical Skin Therapeutics’ technicians beautify bodies and freshen faces with noninvasive cosmetic treatments in a safe, comfortable environment. Spindly spider veins’ death grip on patients’ lower limbs is loosened by a laser that sends blood vessels scurrying away like so many plasma-filled dust bunnies. Though experiences can vary, 30 minutes is usually enough time to treat one area of skin on each leg, such as both thighs, both calves, or both webbed knees, and most clients see results in two to four treatments spaced six weeks apart.
Licensed massage therapist ToniRose understands that each client is different and not everyone needs the same massage. She can customize services with modalities ranging from prenatal to deep tissue in order to treat a wide range of symptoms, such as the overworked muscles of a construction worker or the special needs of an expectant construction worker. Along with her standard massage services, she also offers chair massages to simply relax after a long day.
Blissful Massage Therapy's Erin Langer caters to owners of noncompliant muscles with four styles of massage, each served in 90-minute doses and customized to meet defined demands. Soothing music invites relaxation to the bodywork table as clients present goals and problem spots to Langer's experienced mitts. General massages spin steel-wooly fibers into flowing silken tissues, warding off sleeplessness and high blood pressure caused by visits from a Grimm villain. For those looking to drive out discomfort associated with carrying a watermelon while whittling a teddy bear out of soap, the prenatal massage gently wiggles away said pregnancy woes and more. During Swedish and relaxation massages, palms gradually compress muscles to eliminate toxins, mash hidden potatoes, and boost circulation.
The quiet office of Gryskiewicz Twin Cities Cosmetic Surgery is a world away from the remote mountain regions of Guatemala. But it was in those mountains that Dr. Joe Gryskiewicz found his calling: to pursue a career in plastic surgery. While treating orphans suffering from cleft lips and palates, he couldn’t help but internalize the life-changing potential inherent in cosmetic breast augmentation.
Though he still pays annual medical visits to South and Central America, Dr. Joe has come a long way since that first experience. And wherever he goes, his reputation precedes him. A board-certified plastic surgeon, he specializes in cosmetic procedures that include breast augmentation using the "quick recovery technique", nose surgery, and body contouring. Away from the surgery room, clients also come to his spa for exfoliating Hydrafacials, skin-tightening Venus Freeze procedures, and cool sculpting fat reduction.
