A hair studio, yoga den, and holistic wellness center might seem like a unique combination, but it makes perfect sense to founders Holly Williams and Angela Cronk. Both come from work backgrounds in beauty services and maintain personal lifestyles that emphasize holistic wellness—creating the roots of their center that combines the best of both worlds. At Hagoyah, they’ve assembled a team of stylists, massage therapists, yoga instructors, and life coaches that provides just those things to all of their clients and students, helping them achieve a personal balance between the physical and mental.
On a regular day at Hagoyah, a massage therapist soothes muscles with various techniques, and elsewhere instructors move through relaxing yoga poses within heated rooms. Aestheticians create their own facial products for clients, and stylists with John Paul Mitchell and other credentials cut and color hair to complement their clients’ looks. The services don't stop at the studio, though. Life coaches and nutritional coaches are also on hand to help clients make lifelong positive changes that can bolster their health inside and out.
Board-certified surgeon Dr. Jay Richardson and his staff remove the marks of aging on the face, body, and legs with both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. During the free consultation that precedes treatments, patients chat with body experts to discuss beautifying options such as IPL photorejuvenation or chemical peels infused, like balanced breakfasts, with acidic fruits. Dr. Richardson, a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, oversees noninvasive treatments such as laser liposuction and sclerotherapy to handle unsightly veins.
Thermography is a form of imaging that detects variations in temperature, which can be helpful to military surveillance teams or to doctors on mission to find abnormalities in the body. "From bombs to busts!" quips Linda Bamber, founder of BRAS (Breast Research Awareness and Support), contemplating the versatility of this noninvasive, radiation-free technology that can detect cancer warning signs years before they would show up on a mammogram.
Linda began hunting for new ways to protect her own health after both her mother and sister were diagnosed with breast cancer. She wanted to avoid unnecessary drugs and surgeries, so she turned to digital infrared thermal imaging, diet precautions, and breast-centric exercises. She shares all the knowledge she's gleaned over the years through her BRAS franchises, where women can find brassiere-like support and helpful information.
Though the emergency room can be a daunting place, The Urgency Room promises a comparable level of care without the stress of a hospital visit. The urgent-care clinic, staffed by board-certified physicians, quickly tends to illnesses and injuries such as broken bones, deep cuts, and everyday sicknesses requiring immediate attention. The staff also tackles standard physicals, drug and alcohol testing, vaccinations, and physical therapy. With a lab, an x-ray machine, and a pharmacy in-house, rarely does a patient need to venture off-site for treatment.
The science behind the impressive results of Mind, Body, & Soul is complex and nuanced, but its aim is simple: enhance a naturally occurring metabolic process. The Yolo Curve and Lapex Lipo Laser target fat cells with noninvasive laser energy, causing them to release water, fatty acids, and glycerol, which results in smaller fat cells and inch loss.
Dr. Rory Hall graduated from the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic with one goal: to help patients heal without drugs or surgery. Nearly three decades later, he holds to that same mission; now, however, he augments his non-invasive therapies with modern clinical technology. An FDA-approved cold laser extinguishes inflammation and injuries without breaking the skin, and diets help patients drop unwanted pounds.
House of Élan offers revitalizing body treatments for existing humans and personalized hair-removal options for men and women. Dr. John Verstraete and his team of whisker-erasers employ elos technology to clear bodily brush without resorting to wax or wildfires. Over the course of six sessions, strand assassins will harness bi-polar radio frequencies and light energies to precisely target unwanted keratin and foil follicular invasions, systematically weakening woolen defenses with each treatment. Elos is purported to be effective in the eradication of lighter-colored hair on skin of most shades, hues, and tartan plaid patterns.
