The Metabolic Medical Center chaperones clients along the rewarding journey toward healthier lifestyles with safe and effective weight-loss treatments. The two-week plan begins with an initial visit to the affable Dr. John Parker’s office, whereupon he conducts a thorough examination, making sure to inquire about patients’ family history of forgetting to eat an apple a day. Clients then undergo a body-fat analysis, a BMI test, blood work, an EKG, and additional body measurements as needed. Dr. Parker works with each patient to craft a customized weight-loss plan that incorporates a helpful program book, two meal-replacement supplements for each day of the two-week period, three optional vitamin B12 shots, a two-week supply of vitamins and minerals, and a briefing on the convoluted rules of flashlight tag.
Jeff Scott conceived the idea for Escape Massage Center while vacationing in Hilton Head. He fell in love with the beauty of South Carolina’s seaside towns and decided to expand his successful massage practice, which includes three offices in Massachusetts, to the state. Though he resides in New England, Jeff visits each branch of Escape Massage Center every few weeks to see clients and help them practice their JFK impersonations. When he’s away, his licensed massage therapists take the reins on all deep-tissue, pregnancy, and hot-stone massages.:m]]
Dr. Ronald Finger, a board-certified plastic surgeon, is a founding father of the coastal region's cosmetic-surgery business.

He still works to make Finger & Associates Plastic Surgery Center as renowned as it was when it first opened, beautifying bodies and faces with lifts and tucks as well as less invasive laser procedures and anti-aging treatments. Dr. Finger doesn't just serve the aesthetic needs of women; he has made appearances on the WTOC 11 midmorning show heralding the med-spa options available for men and pandas.
During the time she spent working in emergency rooms around the country, it occurred to Dr. Mary Kay Ross that many of the patients she treated suffered from preventable ailments such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. Drawing from her research in the field of anti-aging and weight loss, Dr. Ross embarked on a mission to turn back body clocks and slim figures with safe, minimally invasive treatments, opening Live Well M.D. Savannah in the process. At the health-care facility, laser body-sculpting techniques, including VASER lipo and CoolSculpting, shrivel fat cells that don’t respond to exercise or commands to play dead, while bio-identical hormone treatments help patients overcome the symptoms of menopause and andropause by balancing the body’s natural hormonal chemistry.

Casey Horan first began to appreciate the complexity and beauty of the human body while studying jujitsu. His teachers recommended deep-tissue massage and stretches as a way to heal injuries sustained during practice. In 2000, he earned his license in massage therapy and began to treat others with the same methods that worked for him.
At Horan Therapeutic Massage, Casey now treats patients with his own signature style. He targets chronic physical pain and tension with deep kneads, and uses warm stones, hot towels, and healing balms to calm the mind.
