Although she offers standard primary care within the warm stone walls of her namesake clinic, Dr. Angelique Barreto has never felt content only treating symptoms after an illness has already taken its toll. Focusing instead on preventive medicine, she helps head off disease with anti-aging therapies that aim to slow internal degeneration and medical weight-loss treatments to improve overall health. Her medical-grade aesthetic services help patients achieve external results by smoothing wrinkles, erasing blemishes, and removing unwanted hair or feathers with IPL treatments.
The aestheticians at BodyTrends specialize in nonsurgical Electrospa treatments that have toned and beautified the bodies of beauty-pageant contestants. By stimulating muscles with gentle electrical currents, technicians can mimic the effects of a face-lift or breast lift without ever breaking the scalpel out of its emergency glass. Lasers erase unwanted hair, veins, cellulite, and tattoos, and facial services banish blemishes while adorning features with MNA and mineral cosmetics. For feelings of inner peace, BodyTrends' massage therapists capture tension from bodies and release it deep in the woods to plague overly frivolous nymphs.
The licensed massage therapists at Family Therapeutic Massage take a clinical, rather than a pure-relaxation, approach to bodywork—they want to heal their clients.

The staff also detoxifies bodies with such novel treatments as ear candling, sinus treatments, and lymphatic drainage.
Supervised by medical director Stanley J. Dombek Jr., MD, FACS, the experienced technicians of Advanced Body Scan peer into clients? inner workings. With the belief that prevention is the best way to protect the body, they use a modern scanning system to detect potential health issues, such as cardiovascular disease, which kills more than one-third of all Americans, or lung cancer, the deadliest type of cancer in both men and women. The system snaps detailed images of the heart, lungs, bone structures, and other organs caged within the body. Images fly from the lens to the computer screen quickly, allowing staff to take pictures of moving organs typically blurred in traditional scans, such as a beating heart or a stomach still flipping from its first roller-coaster ride.
