By way of Michigan and Georgia, chiropractor Dr. Dan Busch—who specializes in extremity adjustments and injury treatment—made his way to Tampa where he established his clinic, Twin Palms Chiropractic. Since opening in 2001, Dr. Dan has helped usher clients toward a healthier lifestyle with a range of chiropractic and wellness services. In addition to his own two hands, he relies on a team of chiropractors, massage therapists, and a nutrition consultant to target a client’s specific needs and design individual wellness regimens.
Along with traditional hands-on adjustments, Dr. Dan and company realign spines with a range of advanced devices, including a spring-loaded table, which moves certain spinal segments without the use of high-impact force, and a low-force instrument called the activator, which works to align spines when not moonlighting as a super villain's doomsday device. Dr. Dan has also outfitted the Venice clinic with BioMeridian and BodyScan machines to help pinpoint bodily imbalances and deficiencies, as well as an i-Lipo Laser system that works to shrink fat cells via strategically placed diode pads.
Slender Life's slimming wraps nonsurgically detoxify, tighten, and tone bodies with each one-hour session. During treatment, a body-wrap technician sequesters bulge using contouring bandages soaked in warm, hypoallergenic mineral solutions.

Demummified bodies may lose 6–20 inches and beam with reduced cellulite and stretch marks, all while flaunting suppler skin worthy of its own hieroglyphic.
Dr. Ralph Garramone, recipient of Castle Connolly Medical's Top Doctors award in Gulfshore Life magazine in 2010, oversees a staff of medical technicians who thwart hostile hair takeovers with ultramodern laser technology. During each approximately 15-minute laser hair-removal session, the guest lies on a treatment bed as concentrated light beams hone in on unwanted follicles, using heat to stunt hair growth. After the lasers zap away overstaying stubble, the technician applies a soothing gel to cool and comfort skin. For optimal results, Ralph Garramone Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa suggests six treatments five weeks apart from each other to render the epidermis as smooth and hair-free as a freshly shorn bowling ball.
