Lauded live on Dr. Oz for reducing inflammation and helping patients manage pain, Cryotek's Cryosauna envelopes clients in an open-top standup booth that surrounds the body with temperatures up -250 degrees Fahrenheit.

Attempting to lose weight can be a challenging experience—one that’s made all the harder when attempted alone. Because they have a deep understanding of these inherent challenges, the counselors and medical personnel of Physicians Weight Loss Centers eschew dieting to-do lists for more interactive programs, taking the programs step-by-step with their clients to foster optimal results. Like a spotter at a gym, the staff keep their clients focused on their goals by hosting behavioral-guidance classes, scheduling personal meetings, and offering encouraging words as they attempt to bench-press the center’s physicians. In medical consultations, physicians chart clients’ personal chemistry and use the collected data to not only draft a healthy weight-loss program with flexible meal plans, but also a maintenance plan to help them keep the weight off.
