Dedicated to improving the physical and aesthetic health of their clients’ skin, the physicians and trained technicians at Asta Center for Cosmetic & Laser Skin Care brandish an arsenal of high-tech laser tools designed to combat numerous epidermal ailments. They swathe skin in noninvasive, high-energy light beams, working to expunge unwanted body hair, erase tattoos and scars, and diminish sun damage and acne. The lasers also target signs of aging, including spider veins and wrinkles. To further renovate façades, the center’s staff can recommend top-grade skincare products, nix lines with Botox or Dysport injections, or add sequins to newly purchased luchador masks.

Working with Human Development and Community Services (HDCS), a nongovernmental Nepalese organization, MedShare plans to deliver a 40-foot-long shipping container of medical supplies and equipment to HDCS's hospital in Dadeldhura, a district in Far-Western Nepal. The residents of Far-Western Nepal, particularly women and children, often face medical hardships that go untreated by trained professionals, due in large part to a lack of resources. In the region, 100 out of 10,000 children are unable to survive until their fifth birthdays, and 75 percent of pregnant women deliver their babies without the assistance of skilled attendants. MedShare's 12,000-pound shipment will help outfit and stock the hospital's three new operating rooms.
Though Alex Tuggle had been receiving alternative healing treatments such as acupuncture and qi gong from his mother since early childhood, he had no idea how drastically those techniques would later change his life. At the age of 12, Tuggle was hit by a car while rollerblading without a protective helmet. He was unconscious as medical personnel rushed him to the UCLA emergency room with a serious head injury and a broken left ankle. After days in intensive care, Tuggle went home wearing a cast stretching from his hip to his foot. In the years that followed, he began to feel intense pressure in his head and stiffness in his neck; a chiropractor told him that his hips were completely out of alignment and that he had severe scoliosis. He tried chiropractic treatment, acupuncture, and biofeedback therapy without noticeable results. But after continuously practicing qi-gong exercises and getting regular acupuncture treatments and deep-tissue shiatsu massages, Tuggle's muscles began to loosen. He also made dietary changes, avoiding sugar and alcohol and nourishing his body with Chinese herbs. Eventually, his mind and nervous system recovered from the trauma caused by the accident.
Tuggle harnessed the lessons learned during his dramatic recovery and decided to share them with others. He went on to become a licensed acupuncturist and earned his master of science degree in traditional Chinese medicine from Yo San University in Los Angeles. At Golden Wellness Center, he helps heal patients with the same holistic processes that gave him his life back. Together with massage therapist April Hairell, Tuggle addresses chronic pain and adrenal fatigue with hands-on and energy-based massage modalities such as shiatsu and medical qi gong. In addition to acupuncture and herbal therapy, Tuggle offers hair-analysis services to determine a person's heavy-metal toxicity or likelihood of winning a Shirley Temple look-alike contest.
Rise Chiropractic & Fitness's staff balance their serious fitness regimens with a laid-back studio setting that resembles a coffee shop. Inside, health and fitness professionals lead sociable group classes that introduce beginning and advanced Pilates techniques, TRX fusion workouts, and boot camps. Personal trainers whip clients into shape during private sessions, and massage therapists relax backs by massaging them, using chiropractic techniques, or by hiring an audiobook narrator to read the newspaper to them.
The board-certified medical duo of LaserDoc, Dr. Bruce E. Thompson and Irina Abovsky-Akkerman, sweep away strands and bulges during physician-designed laser skincare treatments that use the HarmonyXL and AccentXL systems. Clients can begin their skin-clearing journey through two sessions of laser hair removal, a process that saturates unwanted follicles with the HarmonyXL's targeting light beams to lessen hair visibility and negate new growth. Through the Accent system, patients can bid adieu to lax skin and cellulite with a dual dose of nonsurgical laser treatments that tighten connective tissues. The treatment helps freshly taut body covers reduce visible fat volume and increase surface tension to deflect misaimed paper airplanes.
