Kelly and Danny Brown, the founders of On A Mission Nutrition, know what it takes to create healthier patterns for entire households because they’ve been through it. After bringing about positive changes for their own family, the two graduates of New York’s Institute of Integrative Nutrition are trained in personal fitness and have been helping clients do the same by setting realistic goals and learning about food preparation. In doing so, they eschew fad diets and unrealistic restrictions and instead encourage families and individuals to adopt habits that can keep them healthy throughout their lives.
Back to Eden Wellness Center's team of health specialists believe in the importance of truly listening to clients' health concerns and the effectiveness of turning those concerns into rhymes to make them easier to remember. The staff offers consultations that can last from 15 minutes to two hours, during which they educate clients about homeopathy, natural therapy, and modern diagnostics. To treat clients, the center hosts a full menu of holistic treatments, including ionic footbaths, biopuncture, and massage therapy, as well as aesthetic treatments ranging from facials to body wraps.
Born to a family of chiropractors, Doctor of Chiropractic Tred J. Rissacher is drawn to treatments that eschew invasive, potentially damaging techniques in favor of noninvasive, pain-free alternatives. Rather than incising the skin and siphoning out adipose tissue and internal monologues during traditional liposuction, LipoLaser's cold-laser technology circumvents the surface entirely, leaving outer layers safe and cool while scolding triglycerides out of fat cells with noninvasive energy. Understanding that everyone's anatomy is different, Dr. Rissacher and his staff customize treatments to body types and focus on the areas that most concern the client. Free consultations allow clients to discuss their desires and ask any questions while the doctor helps them outline a personalized treatment plan.
Silhouettes dwindle within the walls of Coastal Body Contouring, which uses ultrasound and radio frequency technology to promote inch loss and firmer skin tone. Housed within the Coastal Medical and Wellness Center, the medspa's team begins by meeting with patients and performing an analysis to determine each person's body fat percentage, body mass index, and other baseline measurements. These measurements allow the center's physicians to recommend a specific treatment plan to help visitors accomplish their body-image goals.
Typically, the staff will recommend scheduling 6–12 appointments 2 times per week over 3- to 6-weeks. Each treatment takes approximately 45–60 minutes, during which time a technician will target fatty adipose tissue in specific areas of the body using ultrasound waves. These waves cause the cells to release their contents of triglycerides and fatty acids without causing damage to the surrounding tissues. The body's lymphatic system then naturally removes these waste products over time, helping slim and contour the treatment areas.

At Down to Earth Yoga Studio, experienced instructors help students to build a strong yogic foundation with Kripalu-style classes, fusing poses and mind-centering exercises. Students unfurl yoga mats on shiny wooden floorboards in the practice space, where teachers greet yogis of all skill levels with relaxing stretches and a focus on physical safety and mental clarity. Beginners flock to Gentle Kripalu Yoga, where they learn to pair standing, sitting, and supine poses with breaths deeper than those required to perform a subaqueous tuba solo. Filled with challenging poses, Kripalu Vinyasa Flow classes cultivate strength and self-awareness during graceful moving meditations. In addition to guiding students toward inner peace and wisdom, the studio sells nutritional supplements designed to boost energy and mask yawns during economics lectures.
