From the corporate store to each franchise location, the staff of Max Muscle Sports Nutrition goes beyond stocking and suggesting supplements to offer health help through a variety of channels. Sales associates in the stores help to discern the optimal body aid to achieve the personal fitness goals of athletes, bodybuilders, and everyday exercisers, be they weight loss, weight gain, muscle gain, toxin-flushing, or intimidating a superhero into ripping a cumbersome collection of old phone books in half.
A certified sports-nutrition specialist can also sit down with clients to chart their age, gender, height, and basal metabolic rate to draft a comprehensive, custom nutrition plan. The written word further fortifies customers' soul cages in Max Sports and Fitness, a monthly magazine brimming with health-supplement advice and fitness tips.

The quiet office of Gryskiewicz Twin Cities Cosmetic Surgery is a world away from the remote mountain regions of Guatemala. But it was in those mountains that Dr. Joe Gryskiewicz found his calling: to pursue a career in plastic surgery. While treating orphans suffering from cleft lips and palates, he couldn’t help but internalize the life-changing potential inherent in cosmetic breast augmentation.
Though he still pays annual medical visits to South and Central America, Dr. Joe has come a long way since that first experience. And wherever he goes, his reputation precedes him. A board-certified plastic surgeon, he specializes in cosmetic procedures that include breast augmentation using the "quick recovery technique", nose surgery, and body contouring. Away from the surgery room, clients also come to his spa for exfoliating Hydrafacials, skin-tightening Venus Freeze procedures, and cool sculpting fat reduction.
Dr. Patrick S. Carney, who boasts more than 20 years of skincare expertise, and his experienced staff of skinologists wield the latest aesthetic technology to treat and beautify façades. Each visit to the pristine, welcoming clinic begins with a thorough assessment of the customer’s skin and complexion, allowing for the proper selection of light, laser, and voodoo-spell therapies to be customized for an effective treatment. A 30-minute IPL photofacial uses intense broad-spectrum pulsed light to treat skin conditions such as sun damage, broken capillaries, irregular pigmentation, fine lines, rosacea, and superglued Halloween masks. By treating the areas of the skin with excess pigmentation, photofacial treatments result in healthy, luminous, younger-looking skin. For maximum results, IPL photofacial treatments are recommended in a series of three to six treatments. While side effects such as swelling, alteration in pigment, and blisters may occur, Skin Speaks takes all possible safety precautions to prevent them.
Metro Vein Clinic's Dr. Kamran Afzal makes unsightly veins vanish from the surfaces of legs during minimally invasive sclerotherapy sessions, enlisting injections rather than surgery. During an initial evaluation, Dr. Afzal briefly reviews the client's medical history before performing a physical and ultrasound to detect veins that have been stopped up by age, overexertion, or a wrinkle in the time-space continuum. A board-certified physician then employs a thin needle to infuse each defunct vein with a solution of chemicals that irritate the vein's lining and cause it to collapse. Eventually, the body reabsorbs the sunken squiggles so that they are no longer visible.
In herbology, the white lily is representative of renewal and purity—as well as fertility. At White Lily Acupuncture, licensed acupuncturists and board-certified herbalists Christine Keller and Sarah Sawyer keep every symbolism of the flower in mind. Using the methods of traditional Chinese medicine, the two healers determine holistic treatment plans that help return balance to bodies. Custom treatment plans that begin with a thorough exam of the pulse and tongue often end with herbal prescriptions or acupuncture sessions to help stimulate the body’s energy flow and pop parasitic balloons clinging to the skin. On the women's side of the lily, Christine and Sarah target their procedures to help relieve everything from morning sickness and migraines to infertility and postpartum depression.
