At the NCNM Integrative Skin Care, healthcare isn't synonymous with prescriptions. Instead, teams of veteran physicians provide skin rejuvenation methods and offer Integrative Skin Care plans, which include integrative care of acne, rosecea, aging skin, fine lines, mole evaluations, wart removals, and wound repairs. Trained professionals also provide laser skin care treatment in conjunction with nutritional analysis and hormone therapies, prescribed medication, and topical agents. What's more, plans are customized to each patient's needs. To customize treatments, the team administers tests and gets folks their results in no time with the help of an on-site lab before translating the results into treatments for dermatological conditions.

At Mountain Park Health Clinic, Dr. Kenneth Rifkin channels more than 30 years of experience in naturopathic medicine and acupuncture to attempt to bring down nail fungus with quick laser treatments. During the procedure, Dr. Rifkin administers a laser treatment to the nail bed, breaking down nail fungus with heat gentle enough not to wake any penguins the patient may be cradling. The heat aides in the treatment of the nail bed's infection, hopefully resulting in a gradual return of rosy, healthy nails. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and helps to bestow clients with confidence in their digits during winter vacations to the islands and postgame handshakes with the opposing team's hot-dog vendor.
"Om Base is not here to change you, but simply to support your change.” This feeling of support radiates from the cozy, cabin-like studio, where stone deities lift their hands in greeting just beyond the front door and a rotating, mini gallery of local artwork flanks the welcoming reception desk. Inside the rustic practice room, beams of sunlight shine across warm wood floors, while a wood-burning space heater melts inhibitions and keeps faces from freezing mid-lion pose. Designed with all ages and abilities in mind, classes can focus on slower movements that emphasize healing and introspection; active, fitness oriented routines; or modified moves for expectant mothers or those with mobility issues.
Several of OmBase’s instructors are also masters of massage, energy manipulation, and acupuncture, and provide these services in addition to their yoga teachings.
