The naturopathic/functional practitioners at Wellness Dimensions have tasked themselves with the lofty goal of "restor[ing] health on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, relational, and spiritual." Functional medicine is derived from the belief that health is not merely the absence of disease, but the active presence of balance and wellness. So to attend to all systems in the body, Wellness Dimension's seven-person staff includes a massage therapist, a naturopathic clinician, and a traditional M.D. Treatments are equally diverse, ranging from the ancient, such as acupuncture, to the modern, including Venus Freeze body sculpting and massages from robots.

Body Inspired wages a full-on assault against excess pounds, and the centerpiece of their fat-blasting arsenal is the infrared body wrap from Formostar. The wraps, which stay on for approximately 50 minutes, deploy far-infrared heat distributed by silicon pads to painlessly heat the body. This goal is to increase the body's circulation and metabolic rate, helping to tighten and tone skin, burn calories, and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Infrared body wraps can also help with pain management by delivering radiant warmth deep into muscles, reducing inflammation by melting icicles wedged into joints.
