Doctors of Chiropractic Victor Lasa and Suanette Torres helm Encompass Chiropractic Center, providing physical, massage, and laser therapy to treat injury and musculoskeletal concerns.

Founded 20 years ago by Dr. David Perlow, Any Lab Test Now boasts more than 100 centers nationwide where technicians administer thousands of standard lab tests priced to increase access and affordability for uninsured or low-income patients. Each location doubles as a draw center, where technicians acquire the specimens necessary for popular services—including glucose readings, HIV screenings, and urinalysis—before sending them to an offsite laboratory for testing.
Any Lab Test Now respects the need for discretion, so each HIPAA-compliant test can be taken anonymously in certain instances. Results are often available within 24–48 hours, and can be mailed, faxed, picked up, or transmitted telepathically for ultimate confidentiality. Though the team doesn’t divulge any medical advice, results can also be passed on to primary-care physicians for further analysis.
Located near Universal Orlando Resort, Avalon Massage & Health Spa serves as a relaxing retreat from both the real world and the unreal world of theme parks. Potted plants and landscapes of waterfalls and tropical scenes in the waiting area and private treatment rooms transport clients to a stress-free zone, as does the relaxing sauna and Swiss shower. Along with soothing massages that range from a romantic couple’s massage to a deep tissue or sports massage, the staff pampers clients with facials, body wraps, and waxing. They also perform nail care—pampering each and every one of your nails, even the ones holding your house together.
Sidestepping many of the risks of surgical liposuction, Orlando LipoFast produces similar physique-contouring results with noninvasive treatments. Their signature treatment relies on the latest FDA approved cosmetic medical lasers, designed to puncture fat cells and liquidate their contents. Afterward, staffers aim to stoke circulation and amp up the body's natural lymphatic drainage system. The center also hosts a Metabolic Accelerator program? that may propel weight-loss of up to 20-lbs in as few as 28 days,? and prescribes supplements to burn fat faster, boost energy, and correct hormonal imbalances, such as having estrogen where your blood should be.
Though only elective, non-diagnostic ultrasounds are performed at Little Life Imaging, they are performed by licensed OBGYN diagnostic sonographers. These technicians have worked at local doctors' offices and medical facilities, using the same medical-imaging equipment found in prestigious prenatal centers and children’s hospitals. In addition to completing the 2-D, 3-D, and 4-D ultrasounds, the technicians can record the baby's heartbeat and transfer the sonogram to a commemorative DVD and CD.
The facility boasts clean, welcoming treatment rooms and a play area for kids. The space also hosts showers where the baby appears on the screen as the guest of honor, and parties to announce the baby's gender or innate ability to do the Macarena.
