Whether she’s treating patients at Kulp Chiropractic Clinic or serving as the team chiropractor for the Reading Royals hockey team and Reading Express indoor-football team, Doctor Kulp analyzes spinal and postural shape, dispenses nutritional advice, and teaches corrective exercises. She works with massage therapist Tom Senkowski to alleviate muscle pain with massages and acupuncture, and seeks to detoxify bodies with infrared-sauna treatments and ionic footbaths. Dr. Kulp’s onsite health-food shop stocks organic and gluten-free foods in an effort to encourage patients to eat less wax fruit.
Like building a home, losing weight involves the interlocking of several pieces. The weight-loss architects at Physicians Weight Control build healthy physiques upon four pillars. Diet plans personalized to the client’s lifestyle control intake of nutrients and fat, fueling the clinic's aerobic-exercise plans. The last two pillars—appetite suppressants and vitamin supplements—combine to keep energy levels up and re-create the rush of swallowing a candy bar whole once the client starts eating smaller meals.
No men, no makeup, no mirrors. It’s a pretty stringent philosophy, but it’s one that’s helped members of the Curves community since 1992. Part fitness center, part support group, Curves is a women’s only club that takes a streamlined approach to health, fitness, and weight loss. Full-body, 30-minute workouts combine strength training, cardiovascular exercises, and stretching into calorie-torching sessions, enhanced further by the Curves Complete Program. The program, available at an extra fee, supplements efforts at the gym with personalized meal plans and weekly one-on-one meetings with a certified Curves coach. Outside the facility, members and non-members alike can purchase a variety of Curves products, from workout apparel and accessories to the protein powders and vitamins used to build strength or distract people from all of the caterpillars in your medicine cabinet.
Physicians Weight Loss Centers’ doctors and counselors help clients slim down with a quartet of medically minded diet plans that drive away excess pounds while maintaining proper nutrition and lean muscle mass.

One-on-one encouragement from these professionals helps bolster willpower, and premade shakes make meal preparation easier than stealing baby carrots from a baby bunny.
