Though their disciplines and specialties may vary, the team at Aletris Center agrees that the true definition of health is more far-reaching, and more complex, than a mere lack of disease. The goal at their center is to combine natural and alternative medicine with the best of conventional healthcare available. They apply this preventative, comprehensive, naturopathic philosophy to an extensive roster of ailments from acid reflux to weight gain.
As the staff members' backgrounds vary, so do the treatments they offer, which include acupuncture, holistic pelvic care, chiropractic care, and colon hydrotherapy. Other specialties include naturopathic medicine, natural hormone therapy, women's health, and pediatrics.
At Maynard Chiropractic and Wellness Center, Drs. Curtis Maynard and Kevin Turley operate under the premise that health and wellness are best achieved through prevention rather than correction. The doctors––who also serve as team chiropractors for the Arizona Cardinals and ASU athletics department––apply this philosophy by tailoring wellness plans designed to address each individual's needs and unique conditions as noninvasively as possible. For current soreness sufferers, the doctors’ hands-on healing techniques nudge vertebrae and ribs into healthier positions with gentle adjustments and therapeutic exercises. Cold-laser therapy can increase rates of recovery and chase away any unauthorized spacecraft orbiting the patient, and once symptoms have been fully treated, the doctors can help keep bodies on the path to wellness with services such as diet and nutrition counseling or sports performance optimization.
Unwanted fat is no match for the professionals at Lipogenex. That's because Dr. Emmanouil Karampahtsis and his team zap these pounds away with a wealth of aesthetic and medical services. During body contouring sessions, lasers target fat cells and tighten the skin. Another approach to the same problem comes in the form of individualized weight-loss programs, which consist of diet plans, lipotropic injections, and medications. But helping clients lose weight isn't the only way the clinic can improve their appearances. Take for instance the anti-aging services, which range from organic-fruit-mask facials to skin-resurfacing treatments that are more practical than rubbing your cheek against a moon rock until both shine.
Though a native of New York and a graduate of the Southern California University of the Health Sciences, Dr. Marino Scafidi decided to call Arizona his home. Since 2007, he has been realigning the spines of kids, teens, adults, and senior citizens at AZ Chiropractic & Holistic Health Center in Scottsdale. To help relieve lower back pains, tight muscles, and headaches, Dr. Scafidi uses MiyoDac Muscle Techniques during chiropractic adjustments. Beyond that core service, he employs others, such as cold laser therapy, spinal traction, and massage therapy. The center's staff are also knowledgeable in at-home exercises that can help strengthen the muscle on the back, such as flapping your arms to levitate for 10 minutes.
As a former member of the medical field, Angelica Valdivieso, colon hydrotherapist and founder of Detox For Life, has spent the last decade combining her knowledge of medical techniques with her menu of restorative alternative techniques. Angelica and her team of hydrotherapists and nutritionists oversee closed-system colon-hydrotherapy services designed to flush out toxins and waste material, leaving clients with a sense of lightness not experienced since their last pillow fight on the moon. To further vanquish toxins from the body, Angelica and the team administer ear coning, a method that helps to draw debris and molds from the ear canal, and ionic footbaths designed to detox the body of heavy metals.
Along with a team of chiropractors, ProFormance Health?s owner, Dr. Jason Avelar, eases pain with chiropractic care, massage therapy, and other healthful services. Dr. Avelar and his staff prefer to think of themselves as ?wellness? doctors, and strive to help patients implement lasting lifestyle changes that will keep them healthy. Their nutritional counseling and advice, combined with spine-treating care, works to transform clients without resorting to dangerous body-switching procedures.
