Started as a single Newport Beach clinic in 1971, Lindora was the brainchild of Dr. Marshall Stamper, who was motivated by the unfortunate loss of his mother due to weight-related complications. Now, more than 40 years later, Lindora's weight-loss programs continue to bestow humanoids with a plethora of personalized nutrition plans and private one-on-one health consultations. At more than 40 Southern California locations, medically trained teams of health-care professionals guide patients through lab work, health assessments, and exams to discern the most efficient trajectory into better health. Patients receive encouragement to adjust their lifestyle and behavior, and bellies stay buoyed by nutrition support and menu plans that spotlight fresh, balanced meals.
Long-term weight maintenance is the goal of the clinic's medically-based programs, which means patients needn't worry about extra pounds boomeranging back into their lives like a persistent pet chinchilla. Check the FAQs page here for more information about Lindora's approach to weight loss.
Advanced Dermatology Care of Southern California's medical aesthetician, Teresa Marasco, restores weary visages with renewing treatments that integrate traditional dermatological therapies with natural remedies to leave skin calmed and glowing. After discussing each client's skincare concerns, Teresa begins the 60-minute session by customizing a nontoxic facial peel that blends proven skin-sloughing ingredients such as alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids with vitamins, fruit, and plant extracts for a veritable salad of skin pampering. Then, pores enjoy a deep cleansing accompanied by extractions to rid congested skin of blemishes and other debris for a anti-aging effect. Freshened faces then plant themselves in front of a crimson light for a dose of red-light therapy for about 10 minutes to eliminate dead cells and accelerate the growth of collagen fiber. By the end of Teresa's restorative ministrations, skin boasts lighter pigment, firmer texture, and pores refined enough to take tea with the queen's band of corgi attendants.

Massage is not a luxury... although it feels awesome!
Elemance Holistic Healing's licensed therapist skillfully ousts aches by performing five different types of massage treatments. During the hot-stone massage, the relaxation specialist places heated stones along bodies while administering Swedish-style strokes to melt muscle tension like butter astronauts on an ill-fated mission to Mercury. The multifaceted therapeutic massage tackles soreness with a blend of deep-tissue, myofascial release, neuromuscular, and acupressure techniques, and the classic Swedish massage goes hand-to-hand with tension using long, gliding strokes. Weary passersby in need of holistic healing can stimulate the healthy flow of energy with a vigorous Tui Na massage. Beneficiaries of the Thai massage don workout attire to hide social-security number tattoos and perform yoga stretches as a therapist administers palm and thumb pressure to alleviate pain.
