Dr. Tamyra Rogers could not have predicted how spending time on a Navajo reservation would shape her multifaceted approach to weight loss. After spending a year as chief resident at The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, Dr. Rogers directed the metabolic clinic at the Tuba City Indian Medical Center in Arizona. She helped build a wellness center for the Navajo Nation and chaired a program to fight the growing diabetes epidemic. During her time there, she gained an appreciation of the community's holistic health-care philosophy.
Today, Dr. Rogers combines her background in traditional Western medicine with weight-loss strategies that address each person as a whole rather than two children in disguise. Dr. Rogers's team of personal trainers and group fitness instructors complement her own fitness knowledge, which stems from playing college basketball.
Tucked away in a serene, baby-blue den just inside Within Glow Hair Salon & Spa, Eunice Drummond helps skin stay youthful and radient with expert care regimens. Focusing most of her efforts on the face, Drummond performs more than a dozen varieties of facials and peels.

In addition to her facial services, Eunice is also versed in Parafango treatments. Through the application of a geothermal mask, the treatment works to slim away inches and reduce cellulite, mainly by scaring away lingering cheeseburgers with its scariest ghost impression.

Under the direction of Dr. Sanjiv R. Kumar, a graduate of Johns Hopkins University and Harvard Medical School, Sonterra Laser Med Spa's licensed aestheticians and laser technicians efface signs of aging with attention to detail that garners the spa regular attention on KENS 5's Great Day SA. Advanced skin-analysis machines scan faces before services to give technicians a closer look at bacteria, sun damage, and wrinkles not visible to the naked or clothed eye. The results determine what skincare services best suit each client, including glo minerals chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermal-filler injections. The Lumenis LightSheer Duet laser treatment utilizes a larger spot size to reach greater depths of penetration and destroys hair strands at the root.
With a little help, the body can heal itself. This is one of the central tenets of Dr. Marcus Wilcox's treatment philosophy, and he uses chiropractic care to provide that helping hand. His adjustments specifically deal with musculoskeletal health, though they also promote neurological function by aligning the spinal column. When blockages and misaligned vertebrae don't impair the nervous system, chiropractic theory claims, the body can more effectively overcome wear and tear, better digest oxygen, and allow patients to live more comfortable lives.
