As an acupuncturist with 13 years of professional experience, Shawn Jacobs has learned to augment treatments with a variety of supplemental techniques. Clients can request add-ons such as e-stem, a pain-relief method for which Shawn affixes mildly electrified clips to the acupuncture needles, intensifying the stimulation and resulting blood flow. Shawn also uses her Master’s degree in Oriental medicine to suggest herbal remedies for ailments or particularly bland teas, and can combine herbs and acupuncture to help encourage fertility.
Within its 55,000-square foot facility, Life Center boasts the amenities that many health clubs offer—indoor and outdoor tracks, a 25-meter indoor pool, cardio and strength training equipment, and a cadre of personal trainers. It's association with the Greenville Hospital System, however, allows Life Center to offer more support for overall healthy living and medically-based assistance than any typical club. Health education classes equip attendees with practical skills, such as stress management or healthy cooking, and certified massage therapists perform both medical and therapeutic massage modalities, including fibromyalgia therapy, hot stone therapy, and acupressure. Nutritional counseling programs help clients work toward a healthier diet and address specific nutritional needs.
Within a 2,500-square foot aerobics studio, instructors lead group fitness classes including Cardio Pump stepping with light weights and Turbo Kick, a kickboxing-based workout that builds in intensity as weeks progress.

To ensure everyone's on track, the staff welcomes each new member with a personal exercise orientation, then follows up every six weeks to see how they're doing.

Fluent in Spanish, French, and molar, the dentists at the Tooth Zone and Adult Upstate Dental Care nurse discolored teeth back to their white, just-minted condition. The dental whitewashing, which requires just two visits, is powered by the enamel-bolstering Daywhite ACP whitening formula. On the initial visit, a dentist takes first impressions of mouth bones, judging their compatibility as lifelong friends. When patients return for the second round, they'll receive whitening gel, instructions, and an exact mold of their tusks, perfect for slipping into their mouth for some at-home tooth improvement. After up to three weeks of 30-minute, twice-daily sessions, the whitening process is complete and smiles are ready to be proudly showcased.

A staff of anesthesia personnel and registered nurses work alongside Dr. McFadden, aiding him in his state-of-the-art surgery center and in performing less invasive treatments, such as facials, hair removal, and dermal fillers, which reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles.
