The team of doctors at Lifetime Health and Wellness Clinic knows that sometimes the backbone falls short of its duty to protect the spinal cord. An abrupt jar from a car or limbo accident can cause one of the segments to shift and impinge on delicate nerve material. When that happens, the team is ready to correct injuries with nonsurgical procedures.
In addition to traditional chiropractic adjustments, the health experts relieve pain using laser therapy, which reduces inflammation and accelerates wound healing. Another option is ultrasound therapy, which eases joint and muscle pain with high-energy sound waves, as well as natural pain-relieving injections. If neither of those treatments are right for the job, electrical impulses can be sent into certain parts of the body to block pain signals.
The clinic also tends to overall wellness with blood tests, internal medicine care, and weight-loss programs that teach clients how to eat healthy and extract all the carbs from bread.
At NU:U Laser Lipo, a team of laser technicians perform noninvasive treatments designed to whittle away excess inches from the body. NU:U's signature service is i-Lipo Ultra, a treatment that uses 36 laser diodes and a vacuum massage to further lymphatic drainage and improve blood circulation. With the help of the vacuum massage and a second infrared-laser wavelength, i-Lipo Ultra enhances the process of forcing fatty acids out of the cell membranes and into the tissues that can actually use it, such as the muscles, ligaments, and that kidney that no one invites to parties. The LED treatment can target virtually any body part, including the waistline, abdomen, thighs, upper arms, and chin, leaving them with less bulk and tighter, more toned skin. The result is often a silhouette slimmed up to 4 centimeters in a single treatment session, without surgery or downtime.
Dr. Karen French presides over an all-female staff at French Medical Group & Med Spa, where her anti-aging and wellness services range from complexion-clearing facials to innovative fat-melting treatments. Though stocked with advanced medical equipment, Dr. French’s facility bears more aesthetic similarities to a day spa than a clinic. Soft lights and soothing music help patients relax through procedures such as the Venus Freeze treatment, which works to tighten skin and reduce cellulite and fat circumference. Among their many qualifications, Dr. French and her team are fully trained in Arizona Cosmetic IPL Laser Safety, Syneron, and Venus Concept; armed with this knowledge, they carefully zap unwanted hairs, age spots, and spider veins without damaging skin or blowing up neighboring planets.
The medically supervised life coaches at Naperville Weight Loss Center help clients slim down with nutritional counseling, energy-boosting vitamin injections, and prescription appetite suppressants. They lay a behavioral groundwork for these strategies with a private counseling session. The center offers its programs on a month-to-month basis for those who dislike contracts or who plan on fleeing the country within the year.
ThinFast MD's team of weight-loss specialists—including physicians, nurses, and dietitians—works together to design custom programs for patients of all sizes and ages. With focuses ranging from appetite suppressants to diabetes and nutrition counseling, they help regulate the body's intake of food and spotlight the healthiest choices for each patient's body. They also work with the Optifast meal-replacement program, which kick-starts weight loss with 16 weeks of nutritious meals, custom transition diets, and regular labs and monitoring as needed. Every patient receives a complimentary initial consultation so that the doctors can divine realistic goals. At the root of those goals is the recognition that the best reason to adopt a healthy diet and start exercising is not simply to lose weight or make a lazy pet jealous, but because it feels good and develops a sense of overall well-being.
