A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Dr. Ronald T. Weiland doesn’t “believe in fad diets,” as he notes on his website. Rather, he trusts in simple mathematics: fewer ingested calories plus more burned calories equals weight loss. At Ameri-Cal Weight Clinic, he and his staff put this equation into practice during comprehensive weight-loss programs that rely on healthful foods, aerobic exercise, and prescribed appetite suppressants. This mix of support, services, and tools is readily available at eight clinic locations throughout the Bay Area and one that only appears on leap years.
Each Body By Laser clinic pairs cold-laser technology with holistic health practices to help patients lose inches and keep them off. The treatment gets its magic from cold lipolasers, which are designed to gently shrink fat cells by dislodging their contents so that they can be fully discarded through the body's natural metabolic process and series of tiny secondhand stores. Each one-hour treatment series wraps up with a consultation on diet and exercise, along with a quick session atop a whole-body-vibration platform engineered to burn even more calories.
Like art-house films and fish-flavored popsicles, these procedures are not intended for everyone; females who are pregnant or nursing should not undertake the treatment, nor should patients with active forms of cancer. Should any complications be discovered during Body By Laser's initial screening, the company will issue a refund.
Doctor of Chiropractic Sang Le alleviates back and neck pain, whiplash, sports auto-related injuries, and headaches with a variety of therapies at Stevens Creek Family Chiropractic. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Le employs state-of-the-art treatments such as laser therapy, ultrasound therapy, prototherapy, Graston technique, and decompression therapy. He may also recommend whole-body vibration, a technique designed to help Russian cosmonauts in a zero-gravity environment improve their muscle tone, circulation, and ability to play chess during mach-3 turbulence. Stevens Creek Family Chiropractic incorporates many aspects of healthcare, including preventive care and wellness, so patients can lead long and healthy lives. The reception area's pinkish-purple orchids and hardwood-trimmed sofa with grayscale-patterned cushions lend the office a clean, modern vibe.
Trained aestheticians and laser technicians at Rejuvenis Skincare's medical spa illuminate—and then quickly alleviate—epidermal concerns using FDA-approved SoftLight lasers and other skin treatments. The medical-spa staff employs a wide spectrum of colored beams to focus in on nuanced body areas and remove hair, melt away excess cellulite, correct hyperpigmentation, or break down inks to remove tattoos and permanent sponsorship logos. Microdermabrasion and chemical facials using AHA glycolic-, salicylic-, or lactic-acid peels help to erase skin woes such as acne and wrinkles without bursts of light, yet clients often still hear disco music in their heads.
Miles on the treadmill, dozens of laps in the pool, and thousands of rotations on the stationary bike. And yet without fail the needle on the scale hovers at the same numbers. Dr. Rita Thakur helps evict pounds from her patients using three tiers of weight-loss programs built upon the foundations of an active lifestyle and good nutrition. As part of these programs or offered a la carte, Dr. Thakur also dispenses vitamin B12 injections, FDA-approved appetite suppressants, and behavioral therapy to help patients overcome overeating or act more like Dame Maggie Smith.
The knowledgable staff at New Breath of Life makes clients feel better from the inside out with detoxification treatments. Such treatments include infrared-sauna sessions, which cleanse clients' bodies by causing them to sweat out toxins, and colon-hydrotherapy treatments, which flush the colon with triple-filtered water. She also offers herbal body wraps that contour the body and circulate lymph back into the blood stream. In addition to detoxification treatments, the team offers massages and waxing and skincare services.
Dr. Keith Kim tosses pharmaceuticals to the curb when he treats his patients’ ailments. Manual adjustments combine with massage therapy and rehabilitative exercises to alleviate everything from headaches to arthritis and back pain caused by trying to adjust your own spine. Dr. Kim also tacks on ultrasound and electrical muscle stimulation treatments to other services for added relief.
It’s rare to find a single treatment that works to address anything from headaches to weight loss, but the acupuncturists have been using their methods to do so for more than 5,000 years. Guided by licensed acupuncturist Arthur Pan, South Bay Acupuncture Health Center's team is versed in acupuncture and other methods of traditional Chinese medicine, including herbal therapy and fire cupping. In the past, clients have used these therapies to find relief from many kinds of pain, debilitating addictions, fatigue, and gastrointestinal problems, including those caused by the uncontrollable impulse to eat still-life paintings of fruit.
The team at Butchart Health Center consists of Dennis Butchart, a doctor of chiropractic, and fellow physicians, Dr. Robert Duplain ND and Dr. Corrine Wang ND. Together they take a deeper a look at the root of patient's surface symptoms to target the underlying cause. The root of many ailments often can be traced to spinal misalignment, which he and his colleague Dr. Jeremy Jones then treat using a variety of adjustment techniques and stern lectures.
Their teammate, J. A. Servatius, a naturopathy specialist, takes a similar holistic approach to his weight-loss and wellness treatments. He aims to help his clients make positive changes in their lives by adopting proper nutrition and healthy habits.
At Renew Body Sculpt, the key ingredients for achieving a slimmer silhouette include a balanced diet, exercise, and light. The technicians are in charge of delivering the latter element?they administer body-contouring treatments that reduce fat through light and heat, tightening areas such the arms, stomach, and legs. They have both the i-Lipo and Lipo-Light systems at their disposal. During appointments, pads placed on the body emit light, emulsifying fat cells and sending their contents to be processed by the lymphatic system. The treatments are noninvasive and don't require any bed rest, unlike surgery or wearing a corset on every limb. Whole-body vibration therapy is also available to enhance the metabolic process.
Make no mistake, however: the staff does not consider their services to be quick fixes. Their overarching focus is on healthy lifestyles, of which inch-loss is only one part. Dietary consultations, exercise programs, and screenings for metabolic imbalances help the center create a customized wellness approach for each client, in turn empowering them to obtain a sustainably svelte physique.
When he was studying kinesiology at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Dr. Justin Marchegiani planned to attend a traditional medical school. To prepare for post-grad life as a doctor, he not only accessorized exclusively with stethoscopes, but also worked in a surgical center. There, his plans began to change. As Justin watched patients struggle with chronic conditions and turn to surgical solutions, he steadily became more attached to the idea that preventing disease is better than treating it after the fact.
Off to chiropractic school he went. After receiving his degree, Justin studied clinical nutrition, exercise, and functional medicine. Today he heads his own practice, where he uses holistic techniques to heal patients, specializing in issues that relate to hormones, thyroid function, weight, and digestion. Dr. Justin works alongside massage therapist Heatherly Stankey and reflexologist Arthur Hamilton, who aim to restore bodies' function in natural, non-bionic ways.
A Best of the Bay 2010 Viewer?s Choice winner, Herbal Mineral?s four California locations couple a devotion to recapturing youth with a commitment to cruelty-free and environmentally friendly products and practices. An arsenal of vegan, earth-friendly beauty products speaks to their commitment to bettering the planet, and visitors sip fair-trade-certified tea that helps to fund landslide restoration and reforestation. The staff?s diverse palette of skills runs the gamut from waxing and organic facials to candling and herbal body contouring, the latter of which can help shape silhouettes into comely hourglasses or vertical representations of the New York skyline.
Licensed physician and surgeon Dr. K. Kam. Zand has seen a lot of patients in his more than 30-year career. After completing a fellowship in hematology at Harvard and receiving obstetrics and gynecology training at Washington University, he was named chief resident at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. There, in the hospital that Einstein built with his own hands, patient after patient walked into Dr. Zand?s treatment room hindered by weight gain and aging. Looking for new ways to help his clients, Dr. Zand began learning about cosmetic procedures, anti-aging tools, and medical weight-loss programs.
Today, Dr. Zand shares his expertise as medical director at Los Gatos Smart Lipo. His clinic tends to patients with an array of cosmetic services, including wrinkle-smoothing Botox, laser skin-tightening and liposuction, and surprisingly non-evil laser hair removal.
