As a naturopathic doctor, Tom Demaro combines natural treatments and advanced technology to spark dramatic change in the body. Infra-Slim may be the most notable result of this innovative approach: Demaro fused the idea of pressure therapy, which has long been used to help patients suffering from circulatory problems, with infrared heat, which natural healing experts often call on for its detoxifying powers. The treatment is based on the idea that when fat cells heat up, they expand; add pressure to the mix, and the cell walls will burst, flushing their contents out through the body's lymphatic system. Infra-Slim is said to trim up to five inches from the waistline in as little as three sessions, a claim the center backs up on its website.

After two decades of working in the medical field, Janie Medrano was disenchanted with pharmaceutical medicine. She decided to devote her time to teaching people how to treat what ails them through holistic means, rather than by swallowing pills or bubblegum-flavored band-aids. Janie opened The Wholistic Healing Center, where her greatest enjoyment is recommending options to meet clients’ nutritional or detoxification needs. She’s joined by Bonnie “Jodie” Huggins, an 11-year holistic veteran, who guides patrons to wellness through treatments such as colon hydrotherapy, reiki, and the emotional release of holistic kinesiology.
Within Red Rocks Banya's traditional Russian sauna, nothing has changed since medieval times. The steamy, wood-paneled banya is steeped in history as much as sweat?it harks back to a ritual that has opened pores and provided warmth in the icy Russian climes for centuries. The spa's rustic decor, punctuated with Russian nesting dolls and trinkets, heightens the sense of historicity. After an organic honey-mask treatment and a glass of organic herbal tea, clients can slip into the candlelit cold-plunge pool to cool down or easily remove the skin from tomatoes.
Dr. Tim developed an interest in alternative medicine through his background in chiropractic, but he didn’t start there. In the mid-1990s, the recent grad was working at a pharmaceutical company during the day and moonlighting at a rehab center, all while suffering from debilitating allergies and chronic neck pain. Driven to distraction, he sought the help of a chiropractor, who swiftly got him off the pharmaceutical treatment and on to a more natural approach to health management. He made the life-changing decision to pursue a chiropractic degree for himself shortly afterward. Today, the good doctor encourages a lifestyle built on a five-pillar system of mind, nerves, nutrition, muscle, and detoxification.
The research staff at 7E—a medical-aesthetic company that prides itself on skincare innovations—designs noninvasive treatments that combat the effects of aging and bolster all-over wellness. Once staff members have perfected a solution, they share the fruits of their labors with clients at 7E Fit Spa. One of these many fruits is the Torc Plus, an FDA-approved body-contouring machine that works to deplete inches and bulk up muscles in bodies through electrical stimulation. The spa’s noninvasive face-lifts tighten visages while evening out skin tone, reducing puffiness, and increasing circulation, and saunas detoxify the body and relax clients with infrared heat shoplifted from the equator.
