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.
Vibha is Sanskrit words that means illuminate ––a fitting term for a center whose sole purpose is to rejuvenate faces and bodies. At Vibha Life, staff members are committed to using nonsurgical and natural treatments with minimal side-effects, employing FDA-approved microcurrent devices to tighten skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite, ward off signs of aging and stretch marks, and sculpt physiques.
LiV Health Center’s mission is simple: to help families and individuals lead healthier lifestyles. To meet this goal, the center offers services that range from chiropractic care and restorative massage to progressive exercise and lifestyle counseling. Dedicated to supporting the community, LiV Health Center also partners with local organizations and charities to offer discounted massage services with donated proceeds, and plans wellness workshops with schools, businesses, and roller-derby leagues to educate the masses on topics such as stress management.
At Natural Health Solutions, Doctor of Chiropractic Brandon Mannie and his team perform holistic treatments that either help heal or prevent pain or improve overall wellness. Chiropractic services such as x-rays and vertebral adjustments ensure bodies get back to optimal health. A functional-medicine approach uses tools such as physical exams and medical-history questionnaires to find out what is causing a patient pain. Nutritional counseling and lifestyle advice help patients figure out what foods or activities to avoid in order to maintain good health.
Dr. Mannie also helps improve appearances with body wraps that reduce cellulite and lipolasers, which noninvasively shrink fat cells. Whole-body vibration plates further tone muscles with vigorous shaking.
Licensed massage therapist Natalie Schuler worked the salon circuit until opening Gentle Health Alternatives in 2011. Since then, she’s been practicing her trade in the welcoming studio, inviting clients to relinquish the stress of the outside world and indulge in Swedish, deep-tissue, or pre-natal massages. To further pamper her guests, she doles out salt glow scrubs, hot and cold stone massages, and detoxifying foot soaks.
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.
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 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 him for exfoliating Hydrafacials, skin-tightening Venus Freeze procedures, and cool sculpting fat reduction.
