All treatments are customized, from the aromatherapy of a massage to the angle of the cut performed by senior or new-talent stylists in the salon.

Humans are creatures of habit, a mentality that naturally influences how and what we eat. The philosophy behind Lasting Control Weight Management stems from the belief that humans are creatures of habit. Those habits influence how people eat, and the weight-loss experts acknowledge this. They understand that their patients have favorite foods and often a favorite amount to eat, which is how their evaluations have a unique goal: they create healthy appetites as opposed to just healthy diets.
To do this, the counselors go back to the basics. Their medically supervised nutritional-counseling sessions diagram food groups, food combinations, and how the body as a whole breaks down food instead of lazily expecting the teeth to do all the work. This fundamental approach spreads to the home, where pantries are cleared of unhealthy foods and replenished with natural items. The staff can also facilitate change by doling out vitamin supplements, planned menus, prescriptions, and B6, B12, or lipotropic injections.
