FIT Medical Weight Loss helps clients to lose unwanted pounds with medically supervised weight-loss regimens, prescription and herbal appetite suppressants, and energy-boosting injections. The custom, doctor-led programs are easy to follow, with motivational, in-depth coaching and refrigerators that emit a tsk-ing sound after 8 p.m. Unlike other weight-loss facilities, FIT does not sell clients prepackaged food or shake meal replacements. Instead, patrons are provided with healthful recipes as they strive to meet their weight-loss goals.
Board-certified physician Dr. Josh Brown fades unwanted body art using the Quanta Q-Plus, a laser designed specifically for tattoo removal. The laser's beams pass through the skin during 10-minute sessions, fragmenting tattoo ink—even hard-to-remove colors such as blue and green—so that it can be absorbed into the body. Although the number of required treatments depends on the ink’s color, depth, and resistance to decoder pens, the laser efficiently fades or removes tattoos with minimal discomfort.
Emmett Garcia, the licensed massage therapist at Touched by an Angel’s Wing, renders therapeutic full-body massages using oils or lotions and techniques culled from more than 10 distinct modalities. During each session, Garcia plies a variety of strokes, from rhythmic percussion taps to kneading maneuvers targeted to improve sluggish circulation, like a library that smears its books with chocolate. In addition to redressing backaches, the massage sessions can help to ease stressed-out minds and abate the severity of ailments, such as migraines and swelling from sports injuries or pregnancy. When his own nimble fingers are not enough, Garcia calls upon such spa staples as warm paraffin wax and mud to soothe achy joints and flush toxins from pores.
