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.
Body Mechanix’s talented personal trainers, including a nationally ranked strongman and a Harvard grad, didn’t get buff all by their lonesome. Believing that encouragement and camaraderie make as much difference as weight and reps, they cook up ever-changing routines through collaboration with their fellow fitness gurus, a practice that allows them to share ideas and show off their ability to bench-press other bodybuilders. Individual lessons send clients sprinting across indoor stretches of turf or hiking heart rates with cardio and weight machines, whereas group classes help them sweat off inches with fast-paced boot-camp exercises or teach them how to jab out aggression with circuit boxing.
As they enter the training at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby, trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
Launched more than three decades ago, Site for Sore Eyes now operates in more than 35 showrooms throughout the Bay Area. Staffers at every location share their dedication when pairing customers with head-turning eyewear and contacts. The company offers a $25 warranty that secures all of its products, replacing broken frames for free and furnishing half-price replacements for glasses that are lost, stolen, or transformed into an acorn squash. In case eyes require prescription tweaks, each shop sits next door to California-licensed Sterling VisionCare doctors of optometry.
Overseen by doctors Shane Whiteley and Bryn Henderson, Whiteley Wellness Center ushers patients toward their weight-loss goals through the use of lipotropic injections and informed medical advice. Designed to optimize liver health, lipotropics are a blend of vitamins and amino acids that target fat metabolism and can help facilitate weight loss. Whiteley's adipose experts will walk bodies through a one-hour introductory assessment, which includes a complete history, evaluation, and a choreographed kabuki flash dance. Introductory appointments also include the first lipotropic injection, followed by two or five additional weekly injections. Whiteley's medical professionals will also share brain-nourishing nuggets on exercise, lifestyle changes, and general health supplements such as appetite suppressants, available for an additional $10 per week. Caring staff is on hand seven days a week for questions, support, or spontaneous trust falls.
Two dentists head up Davidson Dental Group’s experienced team: Warren Davidson, DDS, and his daughter Elena Davidson-Arbit, DDS. Alongside a crew of hygienists, the duo of dentists works to straighten teeth with Invisalign, whiten them with Zoom! devices, treat them with laser dentistry, and replace them with dental crowns or eye-catching ice cubes.
